Rustic Vogue interior styling is a real fusion of decorative patterns, colours and natural textures found in handmade crafts around the world. The style is often carefully curated against a more neutral background to give a contrast. So imagine hand-beaten brass bowls, mixed with bold coloured wall cabinets, natural stone coasters and leather suitcases. It’s a real fusion of rich tones and rugged textures from distant lands and a trend style we’ve loved for years. If Like Scaramanga’s founder, Carl, you like collecting and buying curios and eclectic items on your travels then it’s a style that’s not hard to recreate.
The Rustic Vogue interior design style (also known as Modern Rustic) incorporates natural materials, like wood, rattan, clay and stone. It differs because it has more modern elements and neutral colours. Rustic Vogue décor style is embracing rustic charm and warmth with a modern twist. We adore the tones and aged textures that symbolise the authenticity of our pieces.
People want real homes that reflect their personalities and feelings. So rustic vogue styling is about blending old and new from different places, eras and styles to create a look that is a mix of contrasting elements. That means things don’t have to match, in fact it is better that they don’t. People are drawn to pieces that have character and have an interesting story to tell. Old and original interiors whether traditional tribal, functional metal industrial or simple homewares such as concrete pots, wooden boxes and cabinets work very well with interiors from Africa, the French countryside, styles and eras. An old vintage industrial bread baking tray can sit next to a hand carved, stone coaster and a red retro antique post box in harmony.
There’s a certain amount of authenticity required. So, make sure they are authentic and real, even if it means you are constrained by a budget. Buy fewer pieces, but make those pieces stand out. Let’s face it, buying mass-produced items never look as good as the real thing. So look to buy from reputable stores. (ahem, Scaramanga) In the image below we have used a stack of coloured vintage storage trunks as a side table and they’re surrounded by tropical plants and vintage bread tins, stone Indian coasters, an antique padlock and an old retro postbox
The centre piece of our Rustic Vogue interior styling photo is this eye-catching turquoise wooden chest. We carefully restore these chests without losing any of their aged charm. This piece can be moved from room to room with ease. Looking great as a bed side table (As shown in the image below), used as a coffee table in your living room. The possibilities are endless.
We hope you’ve been inspired by our spotlight on our Rustic Vogue interior styling trend. In summary use a lot of beautifully aged pieces, especially those with a super patina. We also love up-cycled and unique colours and asymetrical patterns. But try and refrain from buying too many ‘trend.’ pieces and buy what you like and not what you’re told to like!
