Update Your Space with Modern Rustic Home Decor

Transform your living space with modern rustic home decor. The modern rustic style can be adapted to work for every home, from a traditional farmhouse to a city apartment. Pottery Barn has the furnishings and accent items you need to impart a cozy ambiance to your home that's also on-trend.

The Basics of Modern Rustic Home Style

Achieving a warm, welcoming space is easy with the right modern rustic home decor pieces. Here are some of the essentials to consider when decorating your home in this style:

  • Sofas and Chairs: When choosing seating for this style, you can't go wrong with leather or faux leather in a rich brown tone. Textured leather that looks gently aged provides contrast against modern pieces such as sleek tables and pendant lighting.
  • Beds and Bedding: The modern rustic style can work for every area of your home. A reclaimed wood farmhouse bed makes a good focal point for a modern rustic bedroom. Consider bedding in a buffalo check pattern for a country-inspired look or add contrast with a duvet in a versatile neutral like light gray.
  • Tables and Consoles: Wood tables and consoles are also an excellent addition to a modern rustic room. Look for reclaimed wood pieces with a natural finish and a streamlined design, which combine elements of traditional and contemporary style.
  • Lighting: There are an array of lighting options for this decor style, including hanging lights and table lamps. Place a grouping of metal and glass lanterns on a side table or opt for a lamp with a terra cotta base. You could also hang an abstract-style chandelier to coordinate with the other modern elements in the room.

Accent Pieces for a Modern Rustic Style Home

The great thing about a style that's both modern and rustic is that there are lots of options when it comes to accent items. Invoke the beauty of nature with a faux potted fern on a side table or enhance your walls with a modern print that reflects your rustic color scheme. Other accents to consider include a plush chenille blanket tossed casually over the sofa and a grouping of coordinating throw pillows.

The selection of modern rustic home decor at Pottery Barn makes it easy to achieve the look you want. Many of the pieces can work for other design styles as well, so even if you redecorate you can integrate them into your new look.
