Blend of Rustic and Refined

Blend of Rustic and Refined

 

A simply built room can have architectural interest and look artistic at the same time if the elements of interior design are aesthetically used. Decorating small places to make them look larger is an exceptional art few people have command on. This living room in a rustic design easily grips the muted, brown shades with a few plants to add life. Walls are in lighter colors to make the room seem larger than it actually is, thus giving an idea of space. The neutral palette is enhanced by the beige cushions and sofas, and the rough look of the floor gives you the idea that it is a part of the “outside world”, which is definitely your garden or pavement. The stony floor work and creamy upholstered furniture complement the wooden ledges on the off-white walls.


The mixture of different textures attracts the eye everywhere but the main emphasis remains on the cozy setting of the room. In a living room, exposed log pieces instantly welcome a rustic design. A bright shade of white makes an interesting contrast and helps invite lots of natural light. Off-white paint on the ceiling makes for a uniformly cooler look but the pastel palette keeps things light and soothing at the same time.
This style is perfect for those people who like handmade things and the materials easily found in nature. A striking design feature wall uses candle-shaped lamps and turns an ordinary room into an exceptionally unique space. The finished wood trunk is what makes the setting look more natural. The trunk is scraped, sprayed with anti-termite and then polished, to provide an innovative seating; it can also be used as a table. High ceilings and set-in windows welcome light and offer architectural interest. Non-uniform seating, a rug in front of the fireplace and woodland-inspired items help make this more than simply a living room; it’s a friendly, rustic lodge.
This area is a seamless blend of rustic and refined. Because the room is used year-round, more luxurious fabrics and furniture are not chosen. In such rooms, wood is the word. The furniture is made with wood veneer which uses less wood than the same piece of furniture made with solid wood. The furniture has more strength and can easily withstand the tests of time without any damage. Some projects built using wood veneer would not be possible to construct using solid wood, because of expansion and contraction caused by fluctuation of temperature and humidity.
Instead of armchairs or straight chairs, deep-set sofas with lots of cushions offer comfort and give an inviting feeling and with such a fireplace in the room, all you have to do is put a cat on your feet and take a nap!
