Whether you’re a fan of designs inspired by current trends or prefer pieces with a more vintage edge, for us, the best interiors are those that create a fusion between the old and the new. With blissfully warm, long summer days ahead of us this season, many of us will be looking to build light, airy spaces within our homes to create a relaxed oasis of calm.
That’s why Rustic Romance is one of our favourite looks for this time of year; a perfect blend of style and functionality, this style combines contemporary and vintage pieces to create a charming, elegant and sophisticated vibe.
How to Get the Look
Often the dining space has an abundance of natural light due to large windows or fabulous French doors, making it the perfect area to recreate this look. The dining table is always going to be the centrepiece, and this Hannover Table and 4 Chairs adds a rustic, elegant feel to the room. Crafted from stunning wood with intricate, natural detailing, this range offers evokes memories of relaxed summer dining and helps to bring an airy atmosphere to the room.
Once you’ve put the perfect dining table in place, you can complete the look with the right accessories. Introducing accessories in sophisticated pale hues is a great choice, and well-chosen pieces will ensure the space is homely yet chic.
When the evenings draw to a close, lighting is key for keeping the space feeling open yet cosy. Placing this White Washed Floor Lamp alongside the dining table will add a fabulous soft ambiance to the space. Made from sustainable Mango Wood with an antique distressed finish, the lamp brings understated beauty and elegance to the room.
We would also introduce a piece like this Pane Mirror to reflect light around the room, which will help to open up the space and keep the airy feel, and its distressed light wood frame brings a unique, summery vibe to the look.
Add an additional touch of comfort to the table by incorporating this 100% Cotton Naima Cushion. Its beautiful understated taupe geometric print which will sit well alongside the rest of the décor scheme.
Consider introducing something slightly different to the space, such as this Grey Kubu Round Log Basket. Made from natural rattan, this hand crafted basket will bring a touch of the outside in, and help to create a timeless, homely charm.
A vase such as this simple, modern Clear Neck Small Bottle is a practical piece to add to the room, and will look great at the centre of the table with some fresh flowers from the garden.
With such a large range of pieces available that will suit this look, Rustic Romance is a great style for creating a bright, open space to enjoy the longer days this summer.
