Get the Look: Bright & Rustic

This weekend we were away in the country (more on that tomorrow) and it had me all kind of jazzed about rustic, country decor. I think I get this way every fall though.  New England shines brightest this time of year, and I like to bring that cozy vibe into the home when I can.  This picture I found on Pinterest combines my love of black, white and bright rooms with rustic details as well.  I love how it mixes in a couple modern pieces too to keep things unexpected.

Here are some suggestions to get this look:

Additionally, consider adding some real or faux wood beams to a room.  There are so many options- some even made of polyurethane and finished to look just like rustic wood beams (if your ceiling can’t handle the weight of real wood beams).  had a great selection of faux and real reclaimed wood beams.

These are faux beams!
