My friend Lynda (who did the amazing faux painted carriage doors) sent me this gorgeous photo and I immediately knew what my next post would be about!
Rustic Chic Home Decor in Monochromatic Colors!
I absolutely love the picture below. Did you notice that they mix the old (salvaged barn wood) with the new (sparkly chandelier) along with a monochramatic color sceme?
They call this design style RUSTIC CHIC or FARMHOUSE CHIC.
To get the look of Rustic Chic you generally decorate with salvaged/reclaimed wood along with natural elements (think nature or greenery) and then add a few more modern or glam pieces and there you have it! In general, it is very monochromatic except for the green accents created by nature.
Can you spot in this picture the old mixed in with the new? This time the natural elements are wooden sticks and antlers!
And who wouldn't love a barn door added to their TV armoire? :-)
This is still quite monochromatic but it picks up a little muted green and burgundy. That color combination is just so soothing - I suppose that is why I have used them throughout my own home.

And lastly - how about this fantastic Rustic Chic family room with a tiny bit of industrial thrown in to the mix. :-)
What do you think of this design style??? Is the monochromatic too bland for you? Do you feel you would need to add a big splash of red or turquoise? I'd love to know your thoughts!
