Part 3 of 3!!! Yayyy! We made it! As promised I’m back to talk about rustic and bohemian decor.
I believe rustic decor has alot of different variations so be a little flexible in your thinking of rustic. Now rustic does not necessarily mean “country/farm”. Rustic style uses more natural woods in furnishing, and accentuates the natural beauty to things. You will see more natural and neutral tons, along with a warm feel to the home.
Some people choose modernize their rustic home creating “rustic modern” and some choose to add glam elements making “rustic glam”. I said it before and will say it again these styles are all about how you choose express them.
Now lets take a look at some traditional rustic homes.
This living room design embodies all the classic elements of rustic decor:
- Galvanized metals
- Shiplap walls
- Wood decor accessories and wall hangings
- Antiqued looking furniture
- Light neutral colors
Adding rustic flair to your home is easy. You can DIY some rustic decor or purchase some of the items below or similar ones.
An affordable way to create a home with more rustic details is to use natural frames. You can fill these frames with black and white family portraits. Print some quotes or some rustic-ish symbols for the home. See example below:

Before I transition to the next style I want to show another video of very pretty home that completely embodies the rustic style. This video is from Rustic Fields on Youtube and her home is just too cute.
Now how about bohemian. This style is all about layers, texture, patterns and warmth. This style home really embodies this warm and relaxing feeling. Things don’t have to have a order with this style and should be more free flowing. Some may have a more eclectic boho style and that’s always fun. Some might have a more rustic boho vibe going. Others in complete opposite modernize their boho and scale it back a bit making it less traditional. Let’s take a look.
Now how to add this style to your home. Just layer it up and be bold. This is a bold yet relaxing style.
