Weathered Picture Frames

furniture,room,picture frame,interior design,living room, An easy way to achieve rustic-chic decor is with large, distressed picture frames. The best places to shop for these (and almost every item for this design style) are at an antique shop or thrift store. Chances are that frames in these stores will already have an aged, weathered look, but if you're having a tough time finding what you're looking for, buy regular wooden frames from the store, paint them in one layer of white, then coarsely sand over the paint for the distressed look. You can either arrange them on the wall with no pictures inside, or change the filter on your pictures to "sepia" for a more aged look.


Barn Doors

What's more? The money you save on reclaimed wood and antique pieces can be applied to a killer Versailles-style chandelier.


Natural Wood

room,property,living room,furniture,wall, The key to rustic-chic is steering clear of stains and glosses. All-natural wood is the best way to go and looks absolutely stunning, especially when used in conjunction with other natural wood pieces. When choosing hardwood floors for your room, go for something a bit more distressed with wide planks. The distressed look is a bonus for homes with kids, animals, and of course high heels.



man made object,lighting,flower,centrepiece, Whether hanging from the ceiling or placed on the floor un-lit, lanterns are the perfect accessory for a rustic-chic home. If you want to play it safe, opt for battery-operated candles so you can rest-assured that they won't knock over and cause a major accident.


Exposed Brick

Exposed brick is an absolutely beautiful way to get the rustic-chic look, especially in the bedroom.


Neutral Palette

living room,room,furniture,table,interior design, As you could probably guess, bright colors are not the ideal choices for a rustic-chic room. Instead, choose tans, deep browns, and especially whites. White linens, couches, or walls will offset the dark wood tones and lighten up the room considerably.


Burlap Accents

Lateral Wooden Planks

furniture,room,wall,wood,table, Create an accent wall by placing distressed wooden planks horizontally. This is great for the wall that an office desk sits at as pictured above, or behind a bed.

Rustic-chic is a really fun style because it's especially organic. Antique, vintage, and homemade pieces are totally unique to your home, and you can almost guarantee that no one else will have the same thing. Have fun with this look and let your inner country shine through. Have you ever thought about doing a rustic-chic design scheme?
