Is Cottagecore too whimsical for you? You might want to try the Rustic Vogue style. A charming interior with a modern twist.
Many of us are familiar with the Cottagecore style. The shabby chic interior became popular in the past years. Designing your home with Cottagecore can be a bit intense and overwhelming to the eyes since the style itself is whimsical. If you love Cottagecore but want to mix more modern elements and neutral colors, then the Rustic Vogue style is perfect for you!
The Rustic Vogue, also known as Modern Rustic, is Cottagecore’s glow-up version. It has a refined, contemporary look, but it still has that country comfort feel. The key to incorporate the Rustic Vogue style into your home is to start with an open floor plan and modern furniture. To add character to the space and to make it feel warm and cozy, mix handmade décor pieces, such as ceramic and wall art. Combine different textures and a neutral palette to design the perfect Rustic Vogue atmosphere. An example would be combining wooden floors, vintage rugs, handmade ceramic vases with botanicals. Sounds dreamy, right?
If you want to learn more ways how to blend Rustic Vogue into your home, here are five tips you could use as a guide.
Avoid Over-Decorating: Rustic Vogue is characterized by exposed ceiling beams and wooden floors to wall paneling. This could already be astounding to the space because of the different patterns and tones. We suggest decorating the space with functional pieces. Keep the layout simple to avoid overdecorating. Sure, it’s fine to add sculptures or to hang paintings, but make sure that it won’t make the space look and feel bustling and restless.
Balance Contemporary and Antique Pieces: Mix contemporary art with vintage pieces or antique furniture to create a calm and modern space. You could also add graphically patterned tiles or industrial lighting to tone down the rustic interior.
Create Cozy Alcoves: When incorporating Rustic Vogue into your home, it’s important to balance comfort and style. One of the easiest ways to create a cozy Modern Rustic space is to carve out a reading nook.
Don’t Be Afraid to Mix and Match: Rustic Vogue is all about mixing artisan-made elements with heritage pieces you’ve received from your grandparents or family member. As we have mentioned, carving out a reading nook is one of the easiest ways to create a cozy Modern Rustic space. Place a locally made reading chair and layer a family quilt to complete the look.
Take Inspiration From Your Home’s Environment: Bring the beauty of nature into your home by taking inspiration from your home’s surroundings. Choose native wood, pottery, stonework, and lots of botanicals to add depth to the space and to create an organic feel.
