Rustic Chic Makes a Comeback

If you have been flipping through the many design and decorating trends for 2019, then you will notice that the general theme for the year is styles that are ‘close to nature’. Rustic chic makes this possible with a balanced blend of the natural and the modern. Wooden ceiling beams, floors and cabinets find space here next to polished modern dining tables and chairs. Depending on how ‘rustic’ you want the dining room to be, you can tone up or tone down the use of wood while contemporary functionality makes the space efficient.
