I know you have heard the term Rustic Glam thrown around quite a bit lately. Maybe it’s because of all the ‘green’ and the socially responsible ‘recycledness’ that has been creeping into today’s modern, and not so modern interiors.
A true rustic interior tends to be a bit too “lodge-y” as far as I am concerned but I do love the textural furniture, dark, earthy colors, exposed beams and a mounted deer head in small doses especially when combined with an otherwise ‘clean’ interior. A rustic look can be cozy and clean, but it can go junky cabin in no time. When I say rustic glam, I am refering to a subtle, sophisticated yet still cozy interior that appeals to the outdoor lover confined deep within all of us mavens of mod. I can totally appreciate the outdoor touches, but I’m just not willing to go “cabin in a box” if you know what I mean.
I thought it would be fun to share a few key points that will help you bring in the rustic look while still keeping your love of modern, classic or traditional in check. Here are a few ways to bring in the rustic glam!
Brining in wood elements is the most obvious way to add a few rustic touches to your room. I love all of the glitzy interpretations of birch, driftwood and Aspen trees out there today. The look can be a fabulous “wood” look or you can always pull the trigger on a real driftwood table or console.

Solid Linen or a fun “rustic” print fabric are a few of my favorite ways to bring in the rustic glam look. Simple solid linens and nubby cottons area great basics but what about adding a fun yet sophisticated antler print? If upholstering your existing or new pieces in a bold pattern isn’t your thing, try bringing in a print with your draperies or accent pillows. I love this Antler fabric from Eric Cohler for Lee Jofa is one of my favorites!! You can go simple by using it as an accent pillow or bold with drapes!

A little walk in the woods or a touch of faux bois never hurt anyone…or any room! Check out the accent wall of this dining room done in Cole & Sons Woods Wallpaper. It is a sophisticated rustic glam look that keeps the dining room from being too formal. I love the impact it makes.
This Phillip Jeffries GORGEOUS metallic woods grasscloth is sublime in this boutique dressing room. It was the perfect way to go a little rustic without being too masculine. You can see more of this gorgeous boutique in the latest issue of House of Fifty.
This faux bois rug looks great in this large open entry space. Rugs are a great way to bring in texture and pattern without being to theme-y. I love how this rug is casual but still works with the more sophisticated antique pieces and architecture of the home.
Bringing in touches of fur or hide is one of my favorite ways to go rustic glam. There are tons of faux and real options out there to choose from as well as pieces that can go more girly if you don’t want your room to feel like a dude ranch.
A fur throw like the Lucca here is a soft blend of chocolate and taupe while the Bella (pictured on the bed) has a bit more depth and texture.
The Bella throw in a super masculine and rustic master bedroom project is paired with a custom walnut bed and red accents.
And for the hide lovers, there are also tons of options out there. A cowhide rug, upholstered stool or throw pillows are easy ways to bring in the rustic element without going over board. The metallic hides are some of my favorites and a perfect rustic glam mix. You can find a few fun options HERE and HERE.
Nate Berkus, product designer and New York Times best selling author, this month launches his own line of fabrics exclusively at America‘s go-to fabric retailer, Calico Corners. The inaugural collection, manufactured by Swavelle / Mill Creek, consists of 24 styles and 102 SKUs of fabric.
As a decorator himself, Nate designed the line for both the professional and home decorator. “Fabric is often the first thing we reach for in our firm when beginning a project,” explained Nate. “It adds depth and texture in a way that no other medium can. It’s critical to the way we build a space.” The Nate Berkus collection starts at an affordable $14.99 a yard. Calico will carry the Nate Berkus line in all of its 75 stores across the country.
An avid traveler, Nate has crossed the world for his work, and his debut line of fabrics reflects the inspirations he collected along the way. The line features fabrics for all purposes. Beautiful constructions with metallic embellishment and rough-hewn linen burlap marry with ethnic inspired jacquards and menswear herringbone for upholstery. “I want people to see how diverse fabric can be,” explained Nate. “I’ve covered walls, created headboards, transformed lampshades…all with fabric. People should feel empowered by the fact that whether it’s one yard or ten, they get to decide the impact it will make in their room. That’s what makes fabric so great.”
With the arrival of his fabrics at Calico stores, Nate finds an even greater opportunity to speak to consumers about their homes. “I believe your home should tell your story. In designing products, I design built entities…which I love….but if it’s a tray in the store, it’s still a tray when you bring it home. Fabric, though, can become anything. Consumers get to decide how they’ll use it…how it will tell their story. I can’t wait to see what they make with it. I almost want to demand that whatever it is they create to snap a pic and Facebook it to me,” laughed Nate.
According to Calico Vice President of Merchandising Julie Morris , the launch comes at a time when consumers are showing a renewed interest in better quality home design projects. “Younger shoppers are showing more interest in custom product,” she said. “Their tastes tend to represent a convergence of classic and modern styling, and Nate is a master at striking that perfect balance.”
Morris added, “Calico has a legacy of delivering designer product, positive home decorating experiences and quality to our customers. What is special about this partnership is that Nate’s brand philosophy is in perfect harmony with our own overarching brand concept – we empower people to make their homes unique to them with all of their own passions embedded in the details. With Nate’s vision and the quality that these fabrics bring to home furnishings we have a winning combination to inspire our Calico customers in 2013.”
Why it’s this terrific guest bath remodel of course! With re-purposed chest of drawers and vintage mosaic tile on the floor this exciting bath is a nod to the past while looking straight into the timeless future.
If You feel like you’ve seen this pebble mosaic bathroom floor tile before, it could be because it is vintage! – 1,000′s of square feet of vintage mosaic tile — great prices
The mosaic tiles are the focal point of the whole bathroom. I love how the orange is pulled out and used in the vanity and the accents — it makes the vintage tile feel very modern. I’m also digging the grey grout — which works well with the tiles and must be much easier to keep looking clean.
Instead of white, white, white the bathroom is filled with a confetti of color.

Think gray rooms are dull? In shades of coal, silver, fieldstone, and fog, these spaces have a sophisticated style that’s anything but lackluster. Check out these decorating ideas for going gray!
As with fashion, gold and silver are not mutually exclusive and can beautifully compliment each other when combined. When they meet grey, charcoal, black and white the metallics are worth more than their weight in gold.
Those that espouse the popular idiom, “All that glitters is not gold,” ~ referring to things that appear valuable or worthwhile and yet might not actually be so obviously have never witnessed the magic of the metallic transform the quiet and neutral into the intriguing and alluring.
Love the look of raw concrete walls? Now the industrial and unfinished look of concrete walls can be yours no matter where you live. New custom trompe l’œil wallpaper from Concrete Walls uses photographs by Norwegian photographer Tom Haga to simulate the look of poured concrete, raw cinder block and even graffiti.
Concrete Walls imagery is based on high-resolution photography and custom manipulation — so there are never repeating patterns. The wallpaper — a washable vinyl surface with fiber backside — is available in 2 widths: 2′ (62cm) and 4′ (124cm). Amazingly, rolls can be made to up to 82′ (25m) in height.
What is pattern? Well, a quick search on our friend Google revealed that ‘A pattern, apart from the term’s use to mean “Template“[a], is a discernible regularity in the world or in a manmade design. As such, the elements of a pattern repeat in a predictable manner.’ – Wikipedia
My friends at twenty2 are in my mind wizards of pattern. With wallcoverings and fabrics that are hand printed, made in the USA and Eco friendly I have been a huge fan of twenty2 ever since I found a business card size ad in the back of Dwell and specified Maxwell for a hotel project.
In the words of the designer, ” Maxwell is inspired by a piece of art we [Kyra and Rob] bought in a Philadelphia thrift store in 2002, we wanted to explore what
defines a shape – is it an exterior border or can the shape be created by the content within? We began scribbling away to create a dot that was articulated by the lines within the circle and loved the effect.
We created a repeat pattern of the dots in a seemingly simple grid that is actually full of subtle movement and variation. We nudged each dot slightly in order to avoid any static symmetry, so that the pattern would feel bouncy, rather than static when applied to the wall. Introduced as a wallpaper and fabric in 2003, Maxwell has become one of our signature patterns. We even trademarked the dot! Many say that it looks like balls of yarn or that it has an Asian feeling to it (especially when printed on grasscloth), but we love that it seems to have such universal appeal.”
Pattern fans – this book, a fascinating study of communicating with pattern, features our iconic Maxwell wallpaper pattern. Chock full of amazing images, the book explores the patterns that surround us in our everyday life, as well as in fine art, graphic design and more. Thrilled to be included. Check out the book here.
