How to Mix Rustic and Modern Decor

If you are wondering how to mix rustic and modern decor, there are a few things you should know. Before you begin your home decorating project, check out the latest trends and find out what works best for other people’s homes. Look at blog posts, decorating books, magazines, and social media to get ideas and see how other people decorate their homes. Do not copy others’ looks, but take inspiration from their styles and use it to create your own look.

Accent chairs

Accent chairs have a unique ability to bring a room’s identity to life. Whether they are bold, solid-colored pieces or rugged textured ones, accent chairs are a great way to add pop and personality. Mid-century accent chairs, in particular, can be a great way to add character and class to a living room. If you’re looking for the perfect accent chair for your living room, consider these tips.

Wood paneling

When mixing modern and rustic decor, it’s important to consider what each style represents, as well as what materials they contain. A rustic-styled room will likely stick to solid colors or simple patterns. However, you can use prints from other styles for variety. French provincial, for example, highlights florals and paisleys, while English Country pairs plaids with traditional farm elements. For example, you could go with a bright orange couch with yellow accents.


If you’re looking to combine modern and rustic decorating styles, there are some tricks that will work. The rustic decor features natural and organic materials. Try mixing up patterns and textures to create an interesting contrast. Rustic furniture is generally mismatched and adds to the rustic look, but you can mix it up by incorporating modern shapes and styles. Balance is key. Listed below are some fabrics to use to bring modern and rustic decorating styles together.

Sliding barn door

Sliding barn doors have many uses and can be used to disguise a utility room. They can be used to hide cabinets, TVs, and other items that would otherwise look out of place. The barn doors can also serve as a way to hide a book collection. The possibilities are endless. Incorporate chevron stripes on the boards of your sliding barn door to update the look of any room.

Norman(r) window coverings

Incorporating a rustic theme into your decor doesn’t necessarily have to be hard. You can easily accomplish the look with the use of a neutral color palette and some big furniture pieces. White shutters are an excellent choice for a rustic sanctuary. Warm white shutters pair well with light gray or sage green walls. If you have a modern farmhouse design, a neutral-colored wall will add a touch of character and warmth.
