1. SIMPLE BUT CLASSY HALL
The tuff floor and the whitewashed beams reveal the rustic origin of this hall. You will give it a modern touch if you furnish it with a simple console that lightens the space, a vertical mirror against the wall, and around fiber carpet. That easy!
2. STONE AND WOOD ROOMS
They are the interior materials par excellence of rustic houses. Stone is a powerful thermal and sound insulator and wood are so warm and welcoming! In this room, they are the protagonists of the rustic decoration, which has been updated thanks to the furniture in neutral tones, the very factory metal enclosures, and the presence of plants.
3. RUSTIC LIVING ROOM IN WHITE
Besides stone cladding, what other solutions can you find in the living rooms of modern country houses? Beams everywhere, which you can leave natural or paint them white to emphasize the luminosity of the space. This room, for example, shows off its total white look without complexes while inviting you to contemplate the wonderful landscape that can be seen through the window.
4. A RUSTIC CHIC CORNER
I want to add a chic touch to the modern rustic decoration of my country house! You repeat this phrase like a mantra to see if someone tells you where to start. Take note: use raw materials, untreated, whether in stone, wood, or textiles. Or what is the same, go to the raw trend. This reading corner has no waste with its pickled armchair, natural stone, and organic cotton.
5. A VERY WELL FRAMED DINING ROOM
Wood, stone, fiber, and metal are the materials chosen in the decoration of this modern rustic house. The first two represent the spirit of village houses, while the last two give that modern touch that makes them different.
6. A SPACIOUS OFFICE TO HAVE GUESTS
Formerly in country houses, meals took place in the kitchen. This custom continues in modern rustic houses in which huge solid wood tables predominate. Now as then, what a pleasure it is to gather the whole family in them! And to seat more diners they are accompanied by benches instead of chairs, as in this dining room integrated into the kitchen.
7. A COOL BEDROOM TO SLEEP IN
The wooden beams in the ceiling and the raw walls are a classic in the interiors of old rustic houses. And in modern ones, too. In this bedroom overlooking the garden, the walls were left pristine, unplated, they were simply painted white to give it light. If the country house is near the mountain, put a quilt at the foot of the bed. Who knows, you may have to use it at dawn!
8. A BATHROOM WITH THE BEST OF EACH STYLE
If there are wooden beams in the ceiling of your bathroom, check them before making any changes to it. These treated have an enviable appearance and have rejuvenated the space, even more, thanks to the chosen coating: a very resistant concrete that spreads over the shower and washbasin, giving it freshness and modernity. Meanwhile, the fiber baskets give it warmth. The result? An updated rustic bathroom that exudes total balance.
9. OR DO YOU PREFER A SAUNA TYPE?
Do you remember the old zinc basins that were in your grandparents’ house? A whole legion of different sizes where the largest was used as a freestanding bathtub. Now you can recreate it in your rustic country house but with more comforts: instead of pouring the water into buckets, install a vintage faucet. You can cover the bathroom entirely with wood – like the one in the image – to give it a certain air of a cabin or a Nordic sauna. The windows, better small so that they protect from the cold and facilitate privacy.
