Contemporary rustic decor is rugged yet refined and will bring a unique look and feel to your home. See how furniture, accessories, and window treatments can usher in the warmth, comfort, and picturesque landscapes of autumn with sophisticated flair.

Warmth

Wood tones along with a color palette that includes reds, oranges, and yellows make your home a warm and inviting place. The glow of autumn sunlight magnifies that–which means your window treatments are key. Here plantation shutters eliminate glare and direct soft, natural light to illuminate the rooms. The ambient light makes the design elements stand out with striking beauty and brings a warm tone to the whole area. Perfect for large expanses of glass on windows and doors, these window treatments create the ideal atmosphere for rustic decor and also become part of the style.

Comfort

Rustic decor radiates comfort. Natural elements bring the peace and tranquility of the outdoors right into your home. Here a branching coat rack, fall foliage, and wicker baskets are organic ingredients in this space. The window treatments look natural too. When styling with rustic decor, you want simplicity at the window–nothing overdone or ornate. Letting in beautiful beams of sunlight, while diffusing glare, these blinds provide perfect daylighting and their earthy color blends easily into the space. They are the essence of comfort.

Landscapes

All of that lives outside of your windows, and it should be alive inside your home too. Rustic decor unites outdoor beauty with that which reigns from within. Your window treatments should let autumn landscapes into your home. Here the window coverings allow a view-through while providing light control and privacy. Their texture and color complement the stone countertops, wooden cabinetry, and simple accessories with a rugged softness. The magnificence of autumn and sophisticated rustic decor meet in this space and are at their best.
