Goodbye Espresso, Hello Sophisticated Rustics

Posted on

You had a great run, espresso – now it’s time to take a step back. It seems as if the espresso colour has forever been a cornerstone of almost every type of wood furniture, yet there is a sea change going on. One of the most interesting trends involves decorating with sophisticated rustics, making the old phrase, “what’s old is new again,” more relevant than ever. Below are a few ways that you too can decorate your home with beautiful, sophisticated rustics that are sure to make your spaces feel as if they’ve taken a step back in time.

It’s hard to be more rustic than metal – and luckily for you, decorating with metal décor is all the rage right now. To give your spaces that rustic, sophisticated look, consider decorating your home with metal art that hangs proudly on your walls or consider creating your own designs. One of the best ways to accomplish this feat is by layering metal décor behind furniture to create a unique look that is sure to impress. For example, large, black, metal artwork would look absolutely stunning behind a bold, brown leather sofa or even above an ordinary desk.

Antique ‘gold’

One of the best items primed for layering is décor with that antique, gold look.

Speaking of layering with metal, one of the best items primed for layering is décor with that antique, gold look. If you’ve ever visited a junk store or antique shop, you know the look. Luckily, the golden antique look is also in fashion – and the good news is it’s a very flexible, rustic look that you can decorate with. For example, if you have a bedroom dresser that seems bland and too out-in-the-open, consider hanging a mirror that encompasses that antique gold look to bring out the best in it. Implementing this look in the living room couldn’t be easier either, as it’s as simple as replacing a few lamps with those that have an old world, gold look to it.

Neutral brown

Whether you want to give your space a western look or you want it to feel like an old cabin the woods, anything neutral brown will give you this desired look.
