A modern home is always open and full of light making windows a trademark element. Similarly rustics want their space to feel as close to the outdoors as possible therefore an easy sightline to the outdoors is a rustic’s top priority.
Unlike the generic white walls this is a gallery-style setting that is far more energetic distinctive and attractive. With the right lighting décor and accessories a living room with brick walls can be far more visually appealing as it lets the furniture in neutral hues shine through.
Once again the idea is to create a serene and tranquil setting that is as close to the experience of a beach life as possible. Wickers tools rattan furniture and beds with a natural oak frame fit perfectly into the scheme of things.
