Welcome back! I’m certainly cheerful that you’re joining me for another discussion on residential decor and style.
- If this is your first time joining me, I’m also pleased that you’re here.
You’ve picked the perfect time to come for the first time. This week, I’ll be discussing an undoubtedly proper residential decor style and that is “rustic meets traditional”. The “rustic meets traditional” style is often expressed with what you might think of as a farm house however there are plenty of options for a “rustic meets traditional” nautical residence theme, Tuscan beauty “rustic meets traditional” or even- especially on the east coast of the US- a colonial “rustic meets traditional”. “Rustic meets traditional” is basically characterized by a few strange things. Most notably, the use of natural wood furniture and painted wood furniture (typically white or faded white). This natural wood furniture or painted wood furniture can go with most things from custom built couches to tables and barstools. It’s pretty much up to your individual style. Another trope of the “rustic meets traditional” style is the use of sizable decorative objects that entirely look antique, are antique or are undoubtedly bold. For the old farm house “rustic meets traditional” make sure to go with with an antique ladder resting on the wall. For nautical “rustic meets traditional” go with a very old oar, or even an old school rowboat on the wall above the couch if you have enough space available. This is certainly one of my favorite styles because it does not entirely demand a strict design choice throughout the residence. Because of its reliance on transitional sophistications, you have an excellent amount of wiggle room for light fixtures, statues, plants, etc.
