Natural materials for playing up the rustic chic

It takes a very specific eye to curate a space that fits into a particular aesthetic. Much of the work goes into the selection of materials, which means you’ll need to do your research ahead of time. The rustic chic look is one that incorporates plenty of the following, to be used in conjunction with colour, patterns, and shapes to suit your space and aesthetic.


There’s something infinitely warm about the use of wood in any home. Not only is it remarkably versatile as a material, being perfect for many looks including contemporary, mid-century modern, nordic, and minimalist, it also often forms the basis of any structure for a rustic chic look. From walls to floors to furnishing, wood simply takes the cake. And if you’re into colours, a pastel-painted wood piece works wonders with transforming your space!
