Rustic lounge – tips and 80 photos to create a cozy nest that breathes the natural charm

The busy schedules, the commitments to be respected, the small tasks that go all through the day … and here it is fatigue. One reason in addition to enjoy the moments of calm and peace that is generally lacking in everyday life. This is why more and more people prefer the charm of the rustic living room to ultra-modern living spaces. The latter could assure us comfort, but never this feeling of tranquility that we find only in nature.

How to decorate your house with river stones

The logic of setting up a rustic living room

A rustic salon par excellence is designed around the goal of imitating the raw beauty of the natural world. The creation of continuity between the outside and the inside is therefore essential. Indeed, it is not by chance that houses of this style attribute a not insignificant place to the concern to break the visible borders between these two spaces. It is for this purpose that in the rustic drawing room there is a tendency to reign the great majestic windows. The latter usually gives picturesque landscapes that make you dream. A chair is placed in front of the window, and you will have the feeling of being at the top of the world. In the same way, the greatness of space, which seems to extend to infinity, gives rise to a feeling of freedom, which is often lacking in small muffled interiors.


However, the creation of a successful rustic atmosphere is subject to some requirements in terms of decoration. Thus, we have created a small list of things you need to consider when setting up a rustic living room.

One of the distinctive features of rustic decor is linked to the choice of natural materials. Wood and stone deserve special attention because they are the true stars of rustic aesthetics. The first is appreciated for its warm and cozy atmosphere, making it ubiquitous in the rustic lounge. Apart from furniture often made of wood, the material can often be found on the floor, in the form of parquet flooring or on walls, often trimmed with paneling. And even on the roof! The wooden frame and exposed beams are much appreciated by these decorations. They are supposed to reflect the beauty of the outside, overgrown with flourishing vegetation.

Give life to your grandmother’s old antique

The stone is on his part the preferred material when it comes to creating a cottage spirit fireplace. However, you can find quite a few examples of decorations that use stone as a building material for the floor or walls.

As far as matters are concerned, there could also be a certain enthusiasm for what is natural or at least seems so. Leather, linen, and (false) fur are widespread. Leather sofas for example are a fairly popular accent that also gives a small luxury side to the decor. The rug or the sofa blankets in fur are also widely represented.


As for colors, the first thing to know is that the walls dressed in wallpaper or painted in bright colors are incompatible with the rustic style. There, you must bet rather on the neutral and earthy tints. Gray, brown, and white are declined in all their shades. The green is also introduced often enough to recall the freshness of nature. However, nothing is prevented from adding some colorful accents. Do it through furniture or decorative accessories, unless you act with caution of course.

The furniture

Furniture, as we have already mentioned, is mostly made of wood. There are usually two options. Either one buys brand new furniture to bring a contemporary side, or one turns to vintage and patinated furniture. This ensures we create retro chic accents. The advantage of this second option lies in the possibility of saving money by giving new life to old furniture.

The decoration

The choice of decorative accessories depends on the ambiance you want to create. If you want to emphasize the raw elegance of wood, opt for coarser decorative pieces. For a chalet atmosphere, hunting trophies and decorations in deer wood are very suitable. For extra elegance, opt for a large baroque chandelier. By adding metal or zinc accents, such as a metal pot holder, you can even betray the view, making it look like an industrial decor. Or you can opt for plants and vintage chic dishes. Combine them with light colors to create confusion between a rustic lounge and a chic campaign, whose aesthetics are very close. Indeed, below you will find quite a few examples of decorations that reconcile very well the two styles of decoration.
