If you’ve been looking for a fresh new flooring design for your loft, rustic-modern may be the way to go. This breathtaking contemporary style with a natural, outdoorsy feel is all the rage with some of the hottest interior decorators, and you’;ll see examples of this kind of floor in all the most hip stores and restaurants.
Rustic-modern style is achieved by combining the sleek, straight lines of contemporary furnishings with the rough-around-the-edges look of antique camp pieces, lanterns, unfinished and aged wood, and other log-cabin friendly elements.
Even the smallest spaces can benefit from a touch of rustic-modern design. This look can be accomplished easily by adding rustic flooring to a modern, inner city loft. Consider wide planked floors, limestone tiles, or slate tiles. Dark, matte, scratched finishes give the look of rustic wear and tear. Floor accents, such as rustic area rugs and bold floor lamps can also provide a wonderful addition to complete the look.
When attempting rustic-modern style in your loft, remember to look for pieces that would work beautifully in any farmhouse, log cabin, or home in a wooded, rural area; while also complimenting your collection of bold, modern pieces.
