A Little Rustic

I love where some designers are going with the rustic look these days.  Sometimes I think rustic can be kitschy and dark.  While I don’t mind an animal head mount every now and then (I have a few in my own home, thanks to the hubby), this look can look very manly and rough. But I feel there is a new wave of rustic. Many of the designs have beautiful exposed beams and lighter walls.  The neutral grays and tans are really lovely.  Here are some pictures that I find soften the look.  It looks more livable and bright than ever before.

The cream walls make this space so much brighter.  The light floors help as well.

The light wood makes it so warm despite all of the rock.

The grays in this mountain kitchen give it that modern feeling.
Wow!  So much to talk about here!  Color, texture, shine…  The white cabinetry and backsplash keep this room from looking heavy and dark.  Beautiful!

Same with this open kitchen and living area.  If these cabinets had been stained, it would be way to brown.

I love the color of these beams.  The creamy walls brighten up the space.  It feels light and airy despite the heavy beams.

Of course, I love this Mediterranean, rustic look.  The stucco walls make this room so soft.
Hope you all have a Merry Christmas!
