Rough-Hewn Beams: For many of us, this element is the first thing that comes to mind when we think “rustic.” Not only do rough-hewn beams help to define a space architecturally, they can instantly anchor it in rustic territory, especially if they’re left rough and unpolished. Use beams to frame ceilings and delineate doorways, to surround fireplaces and windows, or even to line walls. You can also incorporate rounded logs if you choose, which lends cabin charm.
Organic Forms: Too many mass-produced or overly tailored pieces dilute a room’s rustic style. Instead, choose furnishings and objects with strong, slightly rough profiles, such as the basket shown in the fireplace.
