Adding character to your home with eclectic and rustic furniture

Trying to create rustic style for your home? If you are a big fan of rustic décor, which also known as cottage or country, you know that this style requires that you use a variety of elements to create casual beauty. 

It also gives your home a sense of charm and warmth. 

If you’re looking for some ideas to update your home with rustic style, you’ve come to the right place! Here are a few ways to add character to your home with eclectic and rustic furniture. 


When you are trying to find the right rustic furniture for your home, don't overdo it. You don't need to buy a million items. All you need to do is select specific pieces that make a statement. 

Items like the Hugo Dining Cabinet or Plazma Entertainment Unit speak volumes when they are placed in rooms and these distressed wood looks are the perfect choices for a rustic home. 


A key element of rustic design is making sure that you use items that look vintage while others look modern. 

You can achieve this look by incorporating items made from natural materials, such as wood or metal, but are finished with modern upholstery, such as the Zebra Chair DC


In rustic homes, the furniture and accessories are often the most striking elements of a space. This is made possible by opting for neutral colours, such as white or taupe for the walls. 

White works especially well with natural wood finishes. 

You can also incorporate earthy tones into your space by selecting colours, such as brown, rust, green, and grey-blue to bring a bit of the outdoors into your home. 


No rustic home is complete without cool accessories! Items that are made from wood, clay or metal can really help to reinvent your space. If you find items that look vintage, that's even better! 

If you add vases, make sure that you add flowers that actually match the rustic style. 

Choices, such as sunflowers, daisies and wildflowers that you might find growing in a field are ideal choices. Your selection of flowers to include in your arrangements should always look effortless. 


Rustic style works best when it is applied to every room of the home. 

So as you gather ideas, keep in mind that you'll need unique colour combinations for every room of your home. 

From the bedroom to the kitchen, living room, and dining room, you can find unique items that are guaranteed to bring every room of your home to life. 

As you plan your space, keep in mind that with rustic style, imperfections are important. 

That should make decorating your space a lot less stressful and even more fun.!
