Enrich the decoration of your home in the town or in the country with these tips to put rustic and chic style on the walls.
Townhouses and their decoration have something that captures and seduces urbanites. Far from the aseptic minimalism or the eclectic retro or vintage style, the rustic connects with the authentic, with traditions, with a simpler way of life, and, why not, romantic. The furniture, the colors, the details… The rural style is very varied and also very rich in different nuances. If you like the charm of country houses, take note of these decoration tips to give the walls a unique air and enrich it even more.
Popular Crafts: A Hit That Does Not Go Out Of Style
A nod to the traditions of the area where the house is located, to local artisan roots that always place the house in its context, in addition to linking with that rural flavor that looks so good in rural constructions. A composition of flavored items, of different sizes, always decorates successfully.
What better decoration than the wall itself, if it has all the charm of rural houses: bare stone walls reveal the rustic flavor with all their aesthetic strength, as well as being difficult to place anything on them.

The kitchen is the nerve center of country houses. We like rustic kitchens very much, but that does not mean that we do not have to do without state-of-the-art appliances. It is the decorative details that put the rural point, such as placing the utensils in sight, the crockery in old showcases, etc. Join the kitchen shelving to get the country style right.
Details That Evoke The Field
Farming utensils, natural fiber trophies, pieces of wood… Everything you can think of can be placed on the wall. Only two conditions: that it is authentic (and if it belonged to the house and has its history, much better) and that it is placed with style.
Contemporary Art, A Perfect Contrast
As always, the mixture enriches. The rustic is not at odds with the modern, but rather the opposite. Combine antique furniture with design pieces, country details with other avant-garde details, and, on the walls, contemporary art. The symbiosis between rustic walls with works by today’s artists is surprising. As an example, these ideas. Dare to the most intense mix.
