Styling Tips for a Rustic Mountain Home

The key to rustic mountain design is an open floor plan, comfortable furniture, and natural architectural elements. Large windows, oversized fireplaces, a simple color scheme and elements that speak to the outdoors all round out the look of a rustic mountain home.

Incorporate Stone & Wood Into the Design

Perhaps the most important feature of a rustic home are the natural elements incorporated into the design. It’s about bringing nature inside and highlighting any original architectural details of a home. Big ceiling beams, stone fireplaces, and wide plank hardwood floors are gorgeous details of a rustic mountain home.

Bring in the Light

Oversized windows allow you to bring the outside in. Design your space around the views, then arrange seating to highlight that feature.

Limit Knick-Knacks

Accessories in your rustic mountain home should be limited. And, when used keep as close to natural elements as you can. Consider styling items that have a similar look and feel.

To get that rustic mountain home look, simply stick with nature. Natural elements, clean designs, and paying homage to the earth win every single time. What are your favorite tips for styling a rustic home? Share them our Facebook page!
