Warm, welcoming, natural, authentic, personal, with character, artisan, traditional … These are some of the many adjectives with which to define the rustic style. And none of them are demodé, dark or heavy. That was before. Before we left that obsession with the urbanite and realized how comfortable the exposed wooden beams, the stone walls, or that handcrafted wooden furniture that blends in with the rest of the house make us feel.
1. THE FOOTPRINT OF THE RECOVERED PIECES
The bench, the coat rack, or the console add character and a traditional flavor to this hall.
2. YESTERDAY AND TODAY
This kitchen is like the old ones, but with the comforts of today. The imposing masonry hood, the retro taps, the large marble sink, or the tuff floor is a nod to tradition.
3. RECOVER THE TRADITION
The handmade stuff on the floor, the masonry furniture, the concrete countertop, the vaulted ceiling … Everything in this kitchen breathes a traditional country flavor.
4. WOOD LOOKS
Wood is not. And the fact is that the cladding of the large built-in shower, which gives this bathroom an indisputable rustic character, is porcelain that simulates Neo-ceramic wood.
5. FEMALE CHARACTER
The headboard and sofa, in a Provençal and French style, give this bedroom a slightly delicate patina.
6. A BEDROOM IN WHITE AND WOOD
Few furniture and materials: mud from the floor, lime on the walls, and wood from windows and furniture. A white-painted shelf acts as a headboard, light and perfect for supporting chosen objects.
