Rustic elements can easily integrate into a contemporary layout. Spotted on designist.ro, the apartment below is located in a historical beautiful area from Bucharest, Romania and it features a lot of decorative objects and items of furniture that seem borrowed from our grandparents’ homes. If you are a big fan of this design, you should only pay attention to the ‘amount’ of tradition you opt to bring inside. When gathering too much from too many sources, the interior risks to look outdated, crowded and non-functional. It is not a secret that ancient homes lacked energy performance or that there were difficulties with gas supply and installations. But, what we want to keep from that period has nothing to do with this. Straw hats, wooden chests, carpets with traditional themes, old spoons and ceramic plates are among the rustic elements we would recommend for your crib. Use a neutral background – for example, paint the walls in white, beige or light grey – and let them breathe in a relaxed configuration. Another tip: combine rustic elements with Scandinavian design; the result will be lovely!
