A Little Bit Rustic–A Whole Lot Of Chic

 

Being in the field that I am I’ve learned to love and appreciate just about every design style that’s out there.  Every style of design and decorating can have its own appeal and unique contribution to a space.  This post is about the marrying of rustic to chic.  Notice the use of rattan (which isn’t too rustic, but has a casual vibe) with natural wood products.

See what I mean?  Somehow a coffee table carved out of a tree – with its natural edges and movement – goes from rustic to chic in a flash when placed in this cool setting.  Paired with different styles of rattan chairs and contemporary wooden accessories – super chic.

I like the bamboo wall hanging here.  Rustic meets chic.

Interesting lighting and picture frames.

How’s this for rustic meets chic lighting?  Very cool.

Lots of natural wood mixed with rattan.  With the cool lighting the overall look actually veers towards the contemporary.

Tree trunk table and accessories.  Definitely not a look for everyone….but in the right space, paired with the right complimentary pieces can be very interesting, rustic, but also very chic.

Do you like this twig table?  Too much…..or too cool?

Everyone has their own look, their own “style”.  If you like rustic, but absolutely must have a chic environment – maybe these pictures will help get you started and give you some much needed direction.

Happy Decorating!
