My Design Philosophy
Rustic furniture and room design, at its core, is the use of organic elements in their most natural state. Design is simple, natural, and has an earthy feel about it. Raw materials are also common, so rather than finding a sleek, glossy burl wood, you'll find more reclaimed and unfinished woods and stones. This is how I design.
Contemporary rustic, however, is having a moment right now, where earthy elements of the rustic style are combined with a clean-lined modern design for a fresh, light, and grounded aesthetic. Rustic decor in and of itself tends to be heavier, darker, and less sparse, so the amalgamation of the two styles produces something light and open, but still very natural. I play with these elements to achieve a look you'll love!
