Why is it that when we think of decorating the home, there is always the habit of considering one decorating style alone? Though most of us always have a particular decorating style in mind, others do not. For those that don’t this article is specifically designed for you. Created to provide the perfect blend between being chic, charming and modern all wrapped into one. With that being said, here are a few modern rustic decorating ideas that will show you just how charming the style of décor is.
Modern Rustic Laundry Room
Even though most homes already come with a laundry room, not everyone uses it properly, and those that do sure aren’t decorating it. Keeping that in mind, take your laundry room to the next level by blending both of these decorating styles and truly taking the room to the next level. Blend in pastel colors to bring that modern touch, but keep the rest simple and true to the room. This means you want to keep laundry baskets, or even rolling carts but you want to keep them as organized as possible.
Having the simple act of a farmhouse table in your kitchen can instantly make the room have a rustic touch. The key is working with as much wood as possible and pairing it butcher block countertops. These two materials will work the room beautifully, especially when you want to add a bold rustic touch to your kitchen area. Pair with modern tiling to truly make the room have that sleek contrast. Furthermore, the contrast will embrace the area even if it small.
If you want an item that is traditional and sleek yet modern and fresh having a bar cart is a way to go. There’s something unfinished about them that screams rustic. Furthermore, add a few vintage pieces such as metallic lantern or two and pair with flowers. Doing so will create the perfect entertaining area that you can travel with.

While having a stone fireplace might not be as cozy, they do provide a second layer of modern allowing you to embrace the room’s new modern feel. Use different colored stones to make an impact where it matters most.
One-touch you can blend seamlessly in the bathroom is reclaimed wood. Not only does it look pretty chic, and but it adds that rustic touch. The lighter the wood the more modern it will appear. Pair your reclaimed wood with brightening and modern touches to make the room feel sleek while creating a contrast that embraces the room, regardless of how big or small it is. If you have a smaller room, we suggest going for a smaller reclaimed wood item, so it doesn’t overpower the room in general.
Modernize the Kitchen
Make a bold move by modernizing the kitchen right when and where you need it most. Take a marble and blend it with metallic accents to make the room have that modernized aspect, pair this touch with large wood accents for that contrasting touch.
