Is it just us, or is it that time of year where we don’t really know what to do with ourselves? Football season is over, it’s sunny and 70 degrees one day and snowing the next. Some of us are starting to head back to the gym before poolside weekends start while others are watching our get-fit New Year’s resolutions slip through our fingers. No matter what, a healthy dose of refocusing is just what the doctor ordered for our wellbeing.
Sometimes all we need to get our head in the game is to get back to nature. Neutral tones, natural fabrics, and raw wood and stone restore calm to a room and pair perfectly with sleek and simple modern shapes. It’s rustic, yet comfortable, like Leo in The Revenant without having to sleep inside a horse carcass. And, OK, probably without the bear attack. These rooms are a breath fresh air, a knot released from between our shoulder blades, a connection to a simpler time.
Below are some of MDG’s favorite features of a modern rustic home.
