1. Woven Mats.
A natural, woven mat amongst a room of stark whites or modern finishes could be just what you need to create a bit of warmth and rustic appeal. Whether you decide to place it under the ottoman or coffee table as a focal point of the living room, or just use it as a mat for the comings and goings of the house at the front and/or back doors.
2. Random Rocking Chair.
In the corner adorned with a fun pillow or cozy blanket. Spray painted white, distressed with sand paper and put out on the front porch to experience the beautiful summer nights in. Or upstairs in the nursery ready to be used to rock the baby to sleep or read a bedtime story in. They’re easy to find, quick to makeover and the perfect accent for just a pinch of rustic inspiration.
3. Mason Jars.
These are the perfect little tid bits to rusticly spruce up your home. Filled with fresh flowers on the dining room table. Lit up with a tea light on the mantle. Mason jars can literally do or be anything you need or want them to be. You can even color them to match your home’s decor with a simple DIY.
4. Wooden Mirrors.
Mirrors are always a choice option for new home decor. They open up the walls, give extra light and create the illusion of more space and depth in the room. But when you place a wooden frame around that mirror you’d got the rustic style that you’re looking for on top of all those pluses.
