A Rustic Feast....





Oh, I do love a rustic house - those that are timber lined and slightly mismatched! I'm not sure why I'm drawn to such things - perhaps it is their charm and honesty - and the feeling that comes with a house that has lived a long (hopefully happy!) life... Or perhaps it is that this is the type of home that I was born into - and as such they possess a reminiscent kind of appeal. Whatever the reason for it, there's no doubt about it - that if I had my choice it would be rustic over new. And in the country too....

all pics from the gorgeous Country Living - a rustic feast if ever there was one!

These are beautiful. I really like the mirror and striped bedding. The arrangement of the pictures in the other bedroom photo is lovely too.

I live in a very rustic country house. I absolutely despised living in it at first but soon came to love it's little quirks and character. We are now looking to build though and my only concern is is that I won't be able to recreate the same warmth and charm. Any advice welcome!

So lovely. I'm really loving the mix of rustic with modern spaces, it gives more life to them I think. Would be curious what you think about white floors, so if you have a chance, would love if you would please stop by trustyourstyle and weigh in.

I always prefer rustic spaces. I often admire modern, sleek design, but when it comes to living in a space, I need some sense of age, imperfection, and texture. Lovely photos you've included here!
