Rustic decor has entered the design scene with its romantic charm and inviting style. And the timing couldn’t be better. With the arrival of autumn, vintage looks that offer a put-together appearance, yet relaxing and comfortable at the same time, have become one of the most sought-after trends this year. From distressed furniture to shabby chic fabrics, each design element adds to the charismatic appeal–it’s vintage style with a contemporary twist. To top it all off, you can welcome in the glowing light of autumn with window treatments that play off of nature’s inspiration. This is the one of the most beautiful times of year–enjoy it throughout your home with the laid-back air of sophistication we call rustic decor. Need help?

Autumn is About Beautiful Light
The light that enters our homes during the season of Autumn has a glow to it, a certain warmth, like the last moments of a summer sunset. It’s the perfect season to enjoy the boost of energy the sun provides as you try to accomplish all you can before winter arrives and the pace of life slows down. The vintage look of an antique chandelier can add character to your dining space, while the textured window treatments bring in the harmony of nature. Whitewashed furniture, like the table in this home, is perfectly paired with chairs that feature upholstery with nailhead embellishments. The fresh flowers add to the positive energy in the room, enhancing the mood as a tribute to summer’s goodbye.
Autumn is About Gatherings
There’s no better way to welcome in a new season–especially the warmth and richness of autumn–than with friends and loved ones. Your home can feature a table setting of rustic decor that displays florals of the season encompassed by shabby chic fabrics, like the wrapped burlap seen here. Down home, relaxed but chic gatherings are a sure-fire way to get everyone in an autumn mind set.
Autumn is About the Perfect Atmosphere
Set your home apart this autumn with the charming look of rustic decor. From elements of nature found throughout your home in artwork, tablescapes and pieces of decor, you can create an atmosphere that welcomes ambient lighting and elegant design.
