Rustic Glam…..

rustic glam

There’s a new design style making waves and it pairs a classically masculine look with very feminine look. It’s rustic glam and it’s perfect for finding common ground when design styles won’t blend well.  Think of it as western lodge meets Hollywood glam.  I know it sounds quirky, but it really works well together.

Start with a few masculine elements of rustic like dark wood flooring, exposed brick walls and rough hew wood ceiling beams. Pair it with elegant chandeliers, soft linen fabrics and mercury glass accents.

A rustic lodge can be cold and unwelcoming with exposed wood beams, stone walls and darker colors, while Hollywood regency can be too frilly and girly. By mixing loved aspects of both, you balance the two styles out.  The glamour style is soft and sensual and it smooths out the rough edges of the rustic look.
