Our take on Rustic Styling

At A&C we are drawn to an earthy colour palette which we find is always at home with rustic furniture and texture.

We know ‘Rustic Style’ has previously become quite cringeworthy, and you may think we are talking about drift wood and industrial rusty steel styling? No, no! Our take on rustic style is soft, warm and classic, let us take you through how we like to apply Rustic styling throughout the home.

A&C Rustic is attracted to organic, unique, handmade and natural textured furniture and furnishings. The colour palettes are usually neutral and we make our points of interest with texture or patterns. 

Let us take you through a couple rooms to explain some of our go to looks.

EARTHY BEDROOM

You can't go wrong with neutral tones and natural materials in the bedroom. When it comes to styling the bed, choose two or three pillow sizes to layer, this is a nice way to  introduce different textures and slight differentiation in colour.

Rustic Styling for the Bedroom at A&C Homestore

The colour palette swings heavily towards neutral, but there is room for bold, so long as it keeps to earthy tones allowing the space to stay open and breathing. 

Our go to bedding colours to provide a neutral backdrop for creating a warm and cosy rustic look are

Natural, Laurel, Rosemary, Ivory, Pinstripe

Animal Hides are always at home with rustic styling. Styled on the bed, or on a chair. This staple piece can be styled all year round depending on how you plan to use it.

Rustic Bedside Styling

BEDSIDE MANNERS

For the bedside table, a minimal option like our Timothy Teak is the perfect base to build up the accessories on top to make the style yours. Handmade ceramics and a feature bedside lamp sit right at home next to this natural bed setting.

Sitting effortlessly we have a ceramic clay vase paired with a hand-made ceramic mug for those evening cups of teas tucked up in bed. And the statement piece of course, is a beautiful table lamp with jute rope shade and simple, matte white base.

Complete the bedroom with The Timothy Teak Bench, a classic natural teak wooden bench. Great for entryways, extra seating, or how we like to have it – at the end of the bed.
