As opposite as the terms ‘rustic’ and ‘minimalist’ may seem, a new trend is on the rise that has given birth a theme perfect for those who can’t decide which to choose: rustic minimalism. This design combines elements of both rustic and minimalist styles, thus putting together both warm and cool feels, natural and monochrome. In the end, your rustic space not only looks homey, but sophisticated as well.
Rustic Minimalist Look Tips
Here are a few tips from Modsy on how to get this minimalist rustic look on your own space.
Go with natural materials.
In order to get the rustic side of this look, you must opt for furniture made of natural materials like unfinished wood, ceramics, metals, stones, jute, and linen.
There is no point in having a space that looks pretty if it is not comfortable. A rustic space is something that is meant to be cozy, even if it has a touch of minimalism. For your base furniture, be sure to pick pieces that prioritize comfort. However, also put in mind that you would want to balance out heavy and airy furniture.
Add warmth with wood and leather.
Wood and leather just scream ‘rustic’ all over. If you have minimalist furniture that is monochromatic in color, you can opt for leather or wooden chairs. Natural wood and leather tones add warmth throughout a room.
Stick to frill-free furniture.
There is no place for frilly furniture in a minimalist space. To get a clean and sophisticated look, choose minimalist furniture and décor that is plain and cleanly cut. Stay away from ornate décor and more traditionally shaped pieces.
