Rustic Coastal Decorating

Continuing on our rustic theme, I found these great images and decorating ideas from our friends at Coastal Living. The slideshow, found here, highlights a few beautifully decorated coastal rooms, and offers some great advice for accenting your home.

Rustic Kitchen from Coastal Living

I love the look of the wood the cabinets are made of, apparently it has been pickled. They describe the room as a rustic oasis, and offer some good advice for decorating with this theme:

“Pickled wood covers all of the kitchen surfaces. When searching for reclaimed items, don’t feel constrained by their original purpose. Here, an old brass curtain rod is given a new life as a towel bar.”

I think it looks great, and I love the old glass bottles at the top of the window above the sink, they look great when the light comes through.

This next picture shows how you can use uniquely designed rustic rooms to your advantage. The stairs create some odd angles for the room, but it has skillfully been transformed into a beautiful reading area and library. The image is titled ‘Nestled Nook’, which fits it perfectly, as the room invites you in to sit down and read a good book.

Rustic Decorating – Coastal Living

Here is their description of the room:

“Small nooks, such as the lounge area and library, make the most of tricky angles in the attic-like master bedroom. Found objects displayed throughout the room give a sense of history to the room. Instead of framing artwork, prop it against walls or shelving for a relaxed point of interest.”

I agree and think the painting leaning against the wall under the stairs looks great just the way it is. Throughout the slideshow they discuss how choosing the right unique, or ‘unexpected’, decorations, can make a huge difference in the look and feel of a room.

The image below is titled ‘Accessorized Style’ and highlights this concept of adding ‘unexpected’ objects to a room. As they say in their description, ‘Never underestimate the power of accessorizing’.

Rustic Accessorizing – Coastal Living

“Never underestimate the power of accessorizing. Add one or two unexpected objects, such as the French wood scrollwork on the coffee table and the large shell-encrusted pillow with heavy embroidery. Pile on your favorite trinkets, and then edit, making sure to vary height, size, and scale.”

Purchased as the perfect rustic coastal decoration, these hand made metal sculptures hang easily on any wall inside your favorite friend’s beach house or beach cottage. Iron Fish art is the perfect addition to your rustic, coastal themed room.
