Decorating a space is an important part of giving that space both character and purpose. If you are looking to decorate a space in a most rustic style, like that found in traditional log cabins, here are some elements of décor that you will want to include in the process.
Furniture comes in all shapes, sizes and colors. Pieces that are great for a rustic look are often made of wood, slightly larger than a typical living room setup and have the appearance of being chunky instead of finely detailed. This type of furniture is comfortable for an entire family and comes in colors that are earthy to match the type of style you are going for.
Because a rustic space often has some type of hardwood flooring, it is important to invest in area rugs for style and for function. You can get cabin rugs that are durable, handcrafted and come in patterns and colors that will complement any style you have chosen for your other room accents.
The key to finding the right rug for the space will also be what size rug you will need. For a large space, you may need multiple rugs for underneath the furniture and for any of the open space in the middle of the room, such as in front of a fireplace.
Rustic doesn’t always have to mean back to nature, but it can. You can put small touches on coffee tables and bookshelves that give the room a feel of the olden days. Some of the most common themes items in a space with rustic décor include sculptures made from wood, framed paintings or old photographs, animal-themed items and more. You can play around with the types of items you put in the room to make a rustic scene truly your own.
