About Me

Creating A Gorgeous Home After I built my dream home, I realized that there were a few changes we needed to make to the interior. For starters, I knew that I needed to do something to make the interior decor special, so I started focusing more and more on making the space special. I started working with a professional painter and wallpaper hanger, and he really did wonders in making my home look and feel different and unique. I wanted to create a blog all about creating a gorgeous home, so I made this website. I hope you find articles that will inspire you to make your space better.

Looking To Give Your Home A More Rustic Vibe? Ideas For You

If you have decided that the time has come to change up the decor and the design of your house, you may have chosen to go with a more rustic design scheme than you previously had. However, even if you want to create a more rustic look for your home, you might not know where to start in the process. Get to know a few ideas that can help to start you off in the process and before you know it, you will be able to enjoy a lovely rustic home before you know it. 

Think Natural, Unpolished Stone

When you want your home to have a rustic appeal and appearance, you want to think natural in just about everything. One of the specific natural elements that you should consider bringing into your home design is stone. When you have stonework in your home, whether it is a part of your walls, floors, or countertops, unpolished is the way to go. 

Stone that has a natural and unpolished finish looks like it was plucked out of the woods or the mountains and installed directly into your home. This is the essence of a rustic look and design. 

Try Wood Finishes Combined Along With Natural Stone

While natural stone is a great way to go to bring in a rustic vibe to your home, all stone can be a bit much and can be too "blah." Because of that, you want to be sure that you mix other textures and finishes in with the stone. 

One of the ways to do that is to avoid painting your woodwork throughout your home. Whether the woodwork is wall trim, cabinets, floors, or anything else in your home, you will want to keep the woodwork looking as natural as possible. Use stains that bring out the natural hues and variations in the wood in your home. 

You will also want to avoid wood finishes that are overly glossy and shiny. It is better to leave the stain with a more natural finish without too much sheen. Remember that the more natural you go, the more rustic your home will be. 

Given these tips and ideas, you can be sure that you are starting off the process of creating your rustic getaway in the best possible way. Once you have the basics figured out, you can add in additional rustic accents and details to bring the whole look together.
