BHG Centsational Style

There’s a trend that’s going strong in home design, and that is the incorporation of rustic touches as part of both architecture and decor. Reclaimed wood beams are appearing as features in kitchens and rustic wood furnishings are popping up everywhere from the living room to the dining room to the bedroom.  Reclaimed, whitewashed, limed, or just worn, these weathered accents bring the warmth of wood and a desirable texture to any space.

Salvage yards are a wonderful place to search for old wood to be reclaimed for use in a new way.  A simple mirror gets a rustic touch with aged boards to form a frame that plays off a plank console in similar weathered gray wood tones.

Wood pairs well with industrial style finishes – the organic surfaces always tempering the cooler metal framing and brackets or hardware.

Reclaimed wood furniture is readily available from many retailers but with a little treasure hunting, often you can discover unique finds at a flea market or salvage yad.  Consider using weathered wood to have a custom piece made for your home by a skilled carpenter or furniture maker.

Rustic touches needn’t be in the form of just furniture.  Accents like shelving, mirrors, light fixtures, or crates bring reclaimed wood into your home on a smaller scale.

  1. Thanks for another great post, Kate. Since moving to the country, my new decorating philosophy is that every room needs one rustic element. I like your decor and the examples you used in this post because they incorporate rustic touches, but there’s still an overall polish and traditional sense–it’s not total country or log cabin. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Oooo, loving the wood borders on the bathroom mirror! Inspired…

  3. I love the 2nd picture down of the bathroom table. Is there anyway to purchase this? You can contact me through my email
