Making Your Rustic Decor Lighter

Deciding to adorn your home or cabin in a rustic theme is an exciting prospect that will allow you to express your artistic side while transforming ordinary rooms into beautiful and unique areas. Congratulations on choosing a classy, timeless motif. The next step is to begin acquiring quality, rustic items that will build a stylish, welcoming atmosphere. Because rustic decor is usually characterized by the darker, richer elements found in nature, blending in light accenting is crucial.

Perhaps you’ve had the experience of walking into an antique store where the shelves were laden with trinkets, signs, dinnerware, etc., and you had to navigate around high-backed sofas and oak dining tables while your eyes darted in all directions, unsure where to focus. The aisles felt crammed and the store cave-like; this effect is similar to what can happen when a home has been over-decorated and saturated in dark tones. The key is learning how to strike a balance. Below are tips and tricks on how to do just that.

Getting started– Ask yourself the following questions about the room(s) you’re decorating:

  • How big is the area?

Small/narrow/windowless rooms need light and neutral wall colors to prevent creating a closed-in feeling. Large/open floor plans allow more leniency to play with rich tones.

  • How high are the ceilings?

Tall ceilings are great for showy chandeliers/hanging lights while short ceilings will mean a “less is more” approach for both lighting and wall hangings. Overcrowding makes rooms of any size appear smaller.

  • What atmosphere do you want to create?

When selecting color, you should go beyond appearance to also consider the moods they elicit. According to www.feng-shui-and-beyond.com, here are a few popular colors and their potential effects:

Orange– stimulating, active, cheerful and sociable

Purple– soothing, calming, and represents abundance/prosperity

Grey– neutral, calm, and quiet

Brown– comfortable, grounding, and stable

Red– activating, stimulating, passionate, exciting, powerful, and expanding

Yellow– happy, uplifting, warm, stimulating, and expansive

Green– calming, balancing, healing, relaxing, and tranquil

Blue– calming, healing, soothing, and relaxing

Black– sophistication, power, elegance, and modernity

White– clarity, innocence, cleanliness, spirituality, purity, hope, expansiveness, and openness

Pink– sedating and calming

  • What does my budget look like?

Decorating doesn’t have to mean spending exorbitant amounts of money. A modest budget and a gallon of paint can easily transform any room into a gorgeous woodland getaway. Buy only items you love, knowing you can add others over time.

Working with wall color– If you have a lot of dark/nature decor (pinecone lights, rugged furniture, wood signs, etc.), you should consider offsetting your rich accents with a neutral wall shade. Some time-tested colors include variations of sand and tan, grey, light blue, taupe, beige, and, of course, creams and white. For larger rooms, you’ll be able to get away with bolder shades on all walls or for accent walls. Some go-to tones for cabin themes are crimson, burnt orange, chocolate brown, and olive green.

If you have log walls or paneling, focus on selecting rustic items that will add pops of color, such as a lively window treatment, wall hanging, throw blanket, etc.

Work with what you’ve got– Remember to use smaller items in smaller rooms to balance out the space. That means smaller rugs, less furniture, fewer wall hangings, and lighter tones. Use window treatments that are light airy. Large rooms, on the other hand, are where you’ll want to show off your oversized lodge rugs, grand furniture sets, darker accent walls, and that collection of Northwoods paintings.

The balancing act– Consider items you want to showcase and keep the area around them clear of clutter and/or put them where your eye is naturally drawn when you walk into the room. Remember neutral paint will bring out your pictures while allowing your eye to roam to your cabin rug or wildlife chandelier.

Don’t be afraid to experiment– You can easily turn a rugged cabin into a chic suite with a few smart changes. Imagine your dining room with a coat of icy-blue paint to highlight a moose antler chandelier suspended beautifully above a Barnwood table while pinecone curtains adorn the windows nearby. Perhaps you could cover those brown living room walls with beige so your cedar furnishing and lake themed throw pillows can take the spotlight. Even swapping out opaque lampshades for cream ones can sometimes make all the difference.

Creating a rustic atmosphere isn’t about overwhelming the senses in dark wood and wildlife images, it’s about choosing thoughtful decor that will enhance what you already have while balancing it with complimentary light tones. Be fearless. Flex your creative muscles and watch your rustic motif come to life.

Rustic Decor for Summer

Summer is an exciting time to transform your home decor. Whether you’re getting ready for a big family cook-out or rejuvenating your favorite spot to kick off your sandals and sip lemonade, we have fantastic design tips to incorporate your rustic style while creating a professional, polished appearance without the professional price.

For the decorating novice, at first the possibilities can feel overwhelming but never fear- below we’ve compiled a list of several no-fail, go-to themes that are sure to impress and help you get started. These are time-tested motifs that won’t go out of style and require little to no updating from year to year:

  • The Patriot– The combination of iconic red, white and blue tones during the hot season is a timeless crowd-pleaser. Reuse red table cloths and napkins from Christmas and serve up fresh fruit and appetizers on rustic serving trays alongside woodland themed platters. Dust off decorative vases and fill them with hand-picked daisies. Scatter flags, candles and rugged star decor throughout the kitchen and sitting rooms and don’t forget touches of burlap will make you look like a decorating guru. No longer limited to Fourth of July, patriotic decor, when balanced with generous doses of white, is classy enough to be displayed year-round.
  • The Westerner– Bring out your zest for the great American west with rugged browns and red. Hang a used lasso on a wall hook or over the back a rocking chair. Use an old, leather boot to conceal a vase as hand-picked wildflowers drape over top. Put your cowboy hats out for all to see and adorn your dining room table with bandana napkins and western star salt and pepper shakers. Hot glue rope or twine around an empty wine bottle for use as a candle holder and have fun with lucky horseshoe accents. Don’t forget equestrian throw blankets for the couch are a must-have!
  • Beach Bungalow– For many, the word summer is synonymous with sunny images of beaches, glistening water and outstretched docks. Luckily for us, capturing the serenity of the shoreline is effortless with a few well-placed items. Create a stunning table centerpiece by placing sand and seashells collected during your last vacation in a glass bowl with candles and fill with water and floating candles for a whimsical effect. Turquoise, baby blue and seafoam tones pair amazingly with white curtains and beach themed rugs. The key for a genuine-looking beach theme is to keep it light and airy. Don’t forget to add hints of nautical decor throughout, such as a sailboat themed lamp, seashell pillows, and ocean bedding for an upscale appearance.
  • Traditional Cabin– When it comes to the cabin theme, you can’t go wrong with nature and wildlife accenting. Line your outdoor walkways with rustic solar lights and bear signs to welcome guests before they enter your northwoods getaway. Woodland clocks, canoe-shaped coat racks, pinecone table runners, and moose rugs all complement wood furnishings in flawless fashion while checker board designs and flannel fabrics are classic staples you can use in your lodge the whole year-round. Host your next campfire party surrounded by authentic country style.

If you’re a decorating enthusiast who’d rather mix it up than stick to a single theme, here are some general tips to enhance your rustic summer look:

  • Keep it light– White, yellow, gray, blue, pink, purple, and sand hues are ideal for creating a fresh, summer atmosphere. In particular, yellow and gray possess a great wow factor that increases when you add a pop of turquoise or pink. Seasonal throw pillows, blankets, rugs, and place settings are simple, inexpensive items you can easily swap out for a completely updated look with the changing of each season. Remember to save dark, rich tones for colder months and don’t be afraid to blend cool and warm colors.
  • Keep it natural– The best part of summer is highlighting the beauty right outside your front door. Use flowers, shells, fruit, pinecones, berries and anything else majestic Mother Nature provides to enhance your lodge motif. Also, natural wood furnishings, while impressive year round, are perfection during the summer. Rearrange your furniture for a renewed appearance and be sure to bring any Barnwood items to the forefront.
  • Keep it simple– While updating your decor, it can be tempting to go overboard. Resist poorly made, kitschy box store items that clutter surfaces and go out of style and instead shop for well-made, tasteful items you can enjoy for decades to come. Adding an item or two each year ensures you’ll have a growing collection you’ll love.
  • Keep it fun– Now is the time to experiment! For example: put out a bright table cloth and mix and match your favorite napkins and placemats for a colorful look. Swap out lamp shades and dress up patio furniture with new pillows. Refresh your guests by serving cool beverages in nature themed drinkware or mason jars while substituting ice-cubes with frozen fruit. Anything goes, so use your imagination.

The sunshine months are a time for playing with bright colors and experimenting with rough and smooth textures. By being bold and taking chances, you can fashion a festive home environment that’s as unique as you are without breaking the bank. So grab your sunglasses, heat up the grill and express yourself through fun, rustic decor you and your guests won’t soon forget!

The Perfect Bed for Your Rustic Bedroom

You don’t have to be a decorator to know that rustic refers to that which is simple, natural, and relates to lodge style living. You also don’t have to be a decorator to use rustic decor to create a room that has all these qualities and the professional appearance that you can enjoy living in. While many of the rustic items used to decorate the bedroom can stand alone as a charming and versatile accent piece, nothing will bring an entire room together more than authentic cabin furniture.

Cabin style

The choice of a bed is a precise one. Not only do you want it to reflect the style of the bedroom, but also your personal taste. A superbly crafted bed made from hickory, cedar logs, or barn wood will say a lot about you. Natural, reclaimed wood has a flawless allure that makes these cabin style beds the substance they need to stand out as the centerpiece of your bedroom. Any of the bedding in western, rustic or cabin themes will coordinate perfectly with the cabin furniture to create the complete package.

Cabin Furniture for Her

Twig styled beds and matching furniture have the unique ability to look as feminine or as masculine as you want to make your rustic bedroom. The lacy appearance of the entwined twigs makes it a great style for her, while the natural appearance of tangled underbrush can also translate into a masculine setting for him. The wood is made with knots, burls, and beetle tracks that make cabin furniture the very definition of rustic. It is nature at its finest, with the imperfections that give each piece of furniture its own unique character.

Cabin furniture is the perfect way to give your bedroom the authentic rustic appearance that will make you feel like you are always in the middle of the woods. Start by choosing the perfect bed for your room and your style. Select the dressers, nightstands, tables, and other furniture you need to complete the look. There are even bunk beds and camo bedding, certain to be a big hit with the youngest cabin enthusiasts in your family. The simplicity is in the choice of materials, all taken from nature. The intricate details used to give this furniture its design are what set it apart from other brands.

The Rustic Lifestyle

For many people today, busy schedules and modern gadgets leave little room for the appreciation of the simpler things in life. Creating a cabin bedroom that is reminiscent of the past, when everything came from nature, will provide you with a place to relax and replenish your inner resources in order to face each new day. Selecting the right cabin furniture and rustic decor to create your cabin style bedroom, will have an impact on the beauty of your entire home and on your spirit. With all the choices in furniture, decor, and bedding you have available, you can design a custom bedroom that is just right for you. To learn more, call Cabin Place at 1-877-884-0248.
