Defining The Ever-Evolving Modern Rustic Interior Style

It’s not every day that we get to have some sit-down time with our founder, Manish Maheshwari. So when we saw an opportunity for the same—we decided to make the most of it. After all, we wanted his observed inputs on a style that is ever-evolving and thus becoming a little elusive to define.

The said style is modern rustic interior and given our founder’s partiality for homestead-spirit-laced-with-urban-sophistication—we knew we were going to be plied with loads of valuable deets. 

Here are the defining characteristics of the modern rustic interior style

#1: FEATURE WALLS

Paneled wall is too rustic interiors as breath is to humans—it’s the quintessential feature of the aesthetic. Any time you see a project imagined in this style, you are bound to find at least one picture showcasing a warm surround of paneled walls. Since we are talking about rustic interiors sprinkled with modern flourishes so that they are palatable to the urban dweller—we advise floral wall plaques or an oversized art to boast the best of both worlds.

Manish says, “Paneled walls lend an air of warmth and intimacy in rustic settings. It’s an unmissable architectural detail of this aesthetic. The embossed veneer panel, 2487 – BORKE in grey wood, from Holz in Form with its deep sections springs to my mind when I think about an ideal candidate to work up a charming homestead-steeped rustic vibe.” Point noted.

#2: CHUNKY FURNITURE

Since the rustic style overall is characterized by visual heft—the furniture used is chunky with strong, masculine silhouettes. Manish notes, “Rustic style places a great deal of emphasis on tactile luxury—where pieces are disarmingly down-to-earth, sturdy, and shabby chic. Nothing feels precious but familiar and reliable with a touch of old-world mystique as some of the furniture pieces are restored to remind the users of the story they lived in their past life.”

That’s true while we are big fans of dainty, feminine furniture—it, however, doesn’t fit in the stolid vibe of rustic.

#3: TEXTURAL EMPHASIS

The draw of rustic interiors as our founder says, “lies in its close-to-the-nature homely charm”. Whether you decide to go with the ubiquitous and traditional choice—wood or the most sought-after and luxurious material—marble, this aesthetic calls for elements that look and feel texturally rich.

“The linear irregular grain of RMD panel WPM 060, brings with it an authentic rustic character. Equal parts discreet and distinct, this striking panel will be as much at home in industrial interiors as it will be in a modern farmhouse,” says Manish.

Likewise, for those of us who love to feel the knots of wood and find the tonal intricacies of the grain therapeutic, our Plankwud panel C 03 Dark Hazel will be right up your alley.

#4: WHITE WALLS

After paneled walls, if there’s another time-honored feature of the rustic style—it has to be white walls. Whether you choose to have an exposed brick wall bathed in this pristine hue or go for an all-white, cheerful background with just a few art pieces hung and a seating ensemble in the foreground—we’d say, you will have instantly nailed this aesthetic.

“The French, especially, those living in the picturesque Provence, will swear by the freshness and magic brewed by white walls. White walls also admit copious amounts of sunlight which not only works for space but also the soul,” says our founder.

The Allure of Rose Gold in Interiors

All those who dismissed rose gold as a feminine color must be mighty surprised to see its popularity mushrooming even in 2019. While rose gold first tickled the fancy of jewelry designers, it didn’t take long for the fashion and furnishings industry to pick the trend. Interior designers, especially, took to the trend like a duck to water—this can be ascribed to the warmth and universal appeal that the rosy-hued metal carries with it.

They say not to view the world with rose-tinted glasses. However, who wouldn’t want to adorn their space with this rose-tinted hue? Brushed Rosegold from Homapal is a delectable metal laminate that will help you bring a sense of serenity in your interiors

We fell head over heels with it even before it actually came under everyone’s radar. Thanks to our channel partners, this metallic trend had started showing up before it officially became mainstream—which is before 2015. 

For a more discreet incorporation, we’d suggest going with New Crisp Rose, a stylish metal laminate from Homapal. Its dainty veined surface will enrich your cabinets, windows, and kitchen backsplash. 

Rose gold gets its charming rosy hue due to the copper content. The dainty pinkish color is now working its magic as a neutral in interior settings despite the earlier notions about it being on the feminine side. 

If you are looking to introduce this hue in a more textural and glamorous way, we’d recommend this fetching metal laminate, Polished Lava Tea from Homapal. 
There’s something warm and comforting about rose gold—we believe we all can use this in spades given the complex times we live in. From a pyschological viewpoint—colors leaning towards rose family are known to convey feelings of compassion, warmth, and tranquility. 
We believe this subtle metallic resonates with our sentiment to seek calmness and harmony in the world we live in. It’s plain satisfying to have your home or commercial space decked in a color that echoes the feelings you want to surround yourself with. 

Look at our gorgeous faux leather Casa Panel in rose gold here. This elegant grained decor looks best in interiors that call for restrained elegance. 
On the opulence front, too—rose gold ticks all the right boxes. It looks stylish in any conceivable interiors style but more befittingly in aesthetics with a pared-down and minimal approach as that’s where this hue gets its moment to shine. We imagine it decking up the wall of a bar where it sets off the leather upholstered bar stools and upping the ante of the overall vibe. Or perhaps, prettying up the reception desk of an uber cool office. Or enriching an entryway cabinet with its ethereal elegance. 

Equal parts minimalist and modernist, Sapphire Rosegold—a chic metal laminate from Homapal’s Trend collection is perfect to envelope your vertical spaces
