Create a rustic modern look

By Marsha Trew, Interior Design Consultant at the St Albans showroom

Rustic modern style is a celebration of mixing old with the new paired with the use of natural textures and materials such as roughly hewn wood and slubby linens to give depth and personality.

Colours are organic and muted, taupes, earth browns, pale stone or washed out blues or aquas that happily accommodate a shot of colour such as the painterly floral fabric used in our scheme to add a point of juxtaposition.

How to create a rustic modern look

Country comfort

Characteristically casual and cosy, country decorating is all about comfort.



Family time

Country living rooms should offer 'stay a while' comforts that call family to gather together.


Country Elegance

Classic simple lines, light and airy tones and simple accessories help to create an easy living modern country look.
