Rusticlectic


Can you read the title of this post?  It’s okay if you can’t, I just made it up.  I combined the words rustic and eclectic because I thought it best defined one of my very favorite styles of design.  Rusticlectic spaces are beautiful and unique, and no two are alike because the combination of design and materials are so unique and personal.

There is nothing that particularly classifies a “rusticlectic” space, but you will know one when you see it.  They can be colorful, or neutral.  They can be bold or subtle.  One thing that they do all have is a glorious mix of materials.  These spaces can mix rustic, modern, cabin, contemporary, southwest, cottage, minimalist, lodge, shabby, chic, bohemian, you name it.   Are you still wondering what a rusticlectic room might look like?  Here are some of my favorite examples!

 

What this room lacks in color, it makes up for in style!  It mixes western cow skulls and laced leather pillows with a more western contemporary sheepskin throw and burlap barrel shades, with a native throw pillow, a bohemian woven swing, and to top it off a farmhouse crocheted quilt!  Beautiful!

This space is a prime example of mixing materials.  I love the layered rugs (though they’re not for everyone they can look beautiful in the right space!), and the mismatched chairs- it’s neat how the chairs are the same style but with different finishes.  The white brick on the wall helps to lighten the room and add another textural dimension!

Here’s another room without a lot of color that still packs a big punch.  The reclaimed wood with the whitewashed ceilings and walls is a great contrast.  Here we see fur, fair isle, and Suzani-ish patterns come together with a rustic industrial twist.  Love it!

This room is a little bit more on the shabby side of chic than I normally prefer, but I love the concept!  Barnwood, colorful prints, and a bold rug look great, and so does the “photo wall”!

Here is a beautiful rusticlectic room!  I love the colors and the canopy mixed with the rustic shutters and reclaimed accents- it looks like an old gypsy caravan built right into the house!

This room combines almost everything that rusticlectic has to offer!  Modern lines on the furniture transition to ethnic prints scattered throughout.  The woodburning fireplace, leather pillows and reclaimed floor help to drive home the rustic aspects of this living room, and the whitewashed wood walls and ceiling provide a cozy cottage feel!  I bet each accessory has it’s own special story!
