  • Achieving ‘Hygge’ in Your Rustic Home

    Finding Comfort and Enjoyment Through ‘Hygge’

    Denmark is consistently named one of the happiest countries on the planet, and it’s not an accident, either. The Danish people follow a concept called “hygge” (hoo-gah) that enables one to find comfort and enjoyment in the everyday, soothing things we find in life. These are almost always the inexpensive things and moments that we cherish most.

    Winter is a particularly popular time to practice hygge because so much of it revolves around being warm, cozy, and comfortable. Sitting down in front of the fire with a hot cup of cocoa while wearing your favorite sweater and slippers is the perfect example. The feeling you get in this kind of moment is essentially what hygge is all about.

    But, did you know that you can achieve throughout your entire home? Here are some tips to achieve hygge in your rustic home this winter.

    Turn the Bright Lights Off

    Bright lights can be jarring to the eyes, so they naturally go against the feeling you are trying to achieve. Keep your bright overhead lights off unless you’re having dinner, and instead use warmer lights like table lamps, candles, and of course, the fireplace.

    DeClutter

    It will be virtually impossible to achieve hygge in a room that is perpetually messy and disorganized. So, be sure and tidy your home up and put everything in its proper place. Further, you can take the opportunity to remove any items that do not bring you intense feelings of joy.

    Surround Yourself With Things You Love

    In hygge, you want to be surrounded by the things you love the most, but the concept of hygge doesn’t necessarily fit squarely with consumerism. This means that everything you surround yourself with needs to be meaningful to you and/or to tell a story.

    Things like family heirlooms, gifts from loved ones, memorable vacation souvenirs, and other such personal items will help you get the feeling you’re going for. Remember, just because you own something doesn’t mean you love it – so take inventory of your possessions and keep only what serves you around.

    Feature Soft Textures

    With hygge, you need to be cozy and comfortable in every room of this house, which means that soft textures work always best. Have plenty of pillows, blankets, throws, rugs, and other soft textured items at the ready, whether you’re in the living room or the bedroom.

    Bring the Outdoors Inside

    A hygge home features plenty of natural materials, like wood, leather, and stone. In a rustic home, you will already be most of the way there – all you’ll have to do is to find additional ways to bring nature inside.

    For instance, gather fallen pine tree limbs and make a wreath, collect fallen leaves and sticks and some stones to make a centerpiece. Find a handsome branch and prop it up in an empty corner – you’re only limited by your imagination.

    Enjoy Meals Together With Loved Ones

    Among the Danish, gathering family and friends around a large wooden table, sitting on wood chairs, and enjoying a big meal together is a hallmark of hygge. The wood table and chairs bring the natural element to the mix, while the meal and loved ones add the sense of warmth and comfort that is key to the concept. Dinner is a great time to put away the electronic devices, so you can focus on the act of eating together.

  • Try These Farmhouse Flourishes!

    These Rustic Staples Will Give You That Perfect Farmhouse Look

    A lot of homeowners believe that in order to get a specific look, they must make that design style first and foremost throughout the home. But, this isn’t really the case. For example, for anyone who may be looking to bring the look of farmhouse design into their homes, buying an entirely new set of furniture isn’t necessarily required, though it certainly does the trick.

    You can still get the warmth and character of farmhouse design simply by featuring a few rustic staples throughout your home. Here are some ideas to help you give your home a touch of rustic charm without replacing everything you own.

    Exterior Farmhouse Accents

    The entry of your home says a lot about who you are. If you love the farmhouse look, then including some rustic flourishes on the outside of your home will make your home look homier, warmer, and more inviting.

    Some of the accents you can incorporate include rustic welcome signs, farmhouse-style house numbers, a weathervane, or an old-fashioned mailbox post. Of course, hanging a traditional dinner bell on your porch is practically a requirement!

    Interior Farmhouse Accents

    There’s an endless number of ways you can add the beauty of farmhouse design in your home without breaking the bank. One way is to replace your modern light switch plates with switch plates made from wrought iron or copper. Opting for plates with animal features on them will show your love for nature in every room.

    Hanging a mirror with a log frame in your entry sets the tone for the rest of the home. Match that with a solid wood coat rack, and your entry will serve as the ideal introduction to your farmhouse home.

    As you progress through the home, incorporating rustic rugs and artwork will add a touch of comfort and warmth to each of the rooms, regardless of what your primary design style is. The natural colors and tones found in these items will keep the atmosphere in the room grounded and relaxed.

    You can even feature minor displays of farmhouse design style throughout the kitchen and bath. From paper towel holders and cutting boards to wooden magazine racks and candy and nut dishes, your choices are limitless. These simple and small touches will make a big impact.

    Other ways to bring the farmhouse look to your home include wrought iron curtain hardware and candle holders, whimsical taxidermy, bookends, and clocks. Replacing your old lamps with new lamps made from wood, copper, or other natural materials is another effective way to introduce farmhouse touches in your family room, even if you have otherwise modern décor.

  • Rug Ed

    Rugs, have to be the right size, among other things.

    We just moved into our first house with all hardwood floors. In fact, the only rooms in this 2,000+ square foot house with a different floor covering are the two upstairs bathrooms. I love the look, sound, and feel of the almost 100-year-old oak floors, but I am admittedly a little overwhelmed with the design choices available to soften their hard edges.

    One of the first things I’ve noticed since ditching carpet is our furniture’s tendency to go slip-sliding every time I so much as situate a cushion or fuss over a spot on the armrest. I know that rugs will help to alleviate that problem, as well as warm up these beautiful wood floors with color and texture. But, where to start? How big? What shape? Where shall I put them?

    Upon consulting the Google machine, I was presented with a few key tips for decorating with rustic rugs. To break down the highlights of what I found:

    1. Area rugs should be a minimum of six inches away from the walls of the room, and no more than two feet.
    2. Hallway rugs should be situated so that any furniture in the entryway is entirely off the rug.
    3. In an office, select a rug that is sizeable enough to accommodate both your desk and chair in such a way that you aren’t dragging or rolling off the sides of it.
    4. In a living room, the rug should be big enough for the coffee table and front legs of chairs and/or sofas to sit on it. The rug should be the focal point of the room without under- or overwhelming the scene.

  • Spring Showcase

    Sturdy Trellises for Vines to Climb OntoOh, how I love spring! Longer days, warmer air; the blossoms and buds and grass become lush and vibrant again. Birds sing and frogs sing the song of spring from the forest.

    Another exciting aspect of spring is filling the flowerbeds. Many spaces are already occupied with perennials, but I still like to add pops of color and character with annuals nestled amongst the bushes and hosta plants. And, every year, I add “decorations” to my flowerbeds.

    Because I’m a fan of rustic style, the garden accessories I choose are usually wood or wrought iron. I am really excited about the additions I’ve chosen this year! Rustic Wrought Iron Plant Stands, Hangers, and Hooks will add height and interest to my flower gardens. I love climbing vines, and the supports on the trellises will work perfectly to showcase the delicate vines. All of the trellises have a loop, so a plant can easily be hung inside the supports. What a great way to combine height, foliage, and colors!

    If you haven’t already begun planning for spring planting and your summer garden, let this serve as a gentle nudge that the time is nigh! Your flowerbeds are waiting.

  • A Tisket, a Tasket, a Tower Full of Baskets

    Basket Trees Make Unique Additions to Your HomeI’m always on the lookout for home décor pieces that can be used for storage solutions in my house. A family of four plus pets plus a home office can create quite a demand for places to stash stuff.

    During one of my recent searches, I stumbled across an interesting piece whose purpose is for pet supply retail locations. It’s a rustic tower with pegs that hold twelve individual bushel baskets. At first glance, it didn’t appear to have much use for me, but then I cocked my head to the side and started thinking creatively. Literally! Suddenly I saw a wonderful solution to storing the paint, markers, stains, odds and ends I use for all my various crafting products. Plus, this little number has castors, so I can wheel it around my craft room! Boom!!

    I have to admit, I really do get a thrill when I find an innovative new way to utilize a piece of home décor. It may be the creative in me, but I love it when my friends comment how they would have never thought to use “that” for “that”! You can literally save hundreds of dollars sometimes, repurposing a piece for a use it wasn’t created for. Why spend more to buy something because it has been designated for a certain purpose, when you can repurpose “generic” pieces for the same use, but for far less money? Plus, your finished product is something that no one else has!

    As for me and my Camp Bow Wow Log Standing Basket Tree, you can find us happily creating brilliance in my craft room.

  • Country Decor Art Captures the Spirit of Christmas

    Christmas Themed Art PrintsThe Christmas season brings a special kind of feeling that many people wish they could hold onto all year long, and you can do just that with prints like Christmas By The Fireplace. As a permanent fixture of your country decor, this fine art print gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling every time you look at its depiction of a snowy evening during the holidays.

    Red, white and green are the colors most often associated with Christmas, and the artist uses these in abundance in Christmas By The Fireplace. A green armchair sits to the right in the foreground of the image and is balanced out by a brightly lit Christmas tree on the left. Presents wrapped in red and gold sit under the tree, and more gifts are stacked on the chair. A large brick fireplace dominates the background, framing a warm fire crackling away on the hearth. Just above the flakes, two patterned Christmas stockings hang ready and waiting for Santa to come fill them with presents.

    A few more seasonal touches make this rustic decor print perfect for Christmas decorating or any time you want to feel the cozy glow of the holidays. One is a large wreath that hangs above the fireplace, encircled by strands of red and accented with a red ribbon in the center. Candles in red, silver and gold crowd the mantle, lighting up more greenery that complements the chair and the Christmas tree. On the tree itself, giant balls of red and gold reflect the light of candles. Look closely you’ll find splashes of blue and silver that create balance with just a bit of contemporary flair.

    A window to the outside provides the final touch in Christmas By The Fireplace. Frosty panes frame flakes of Christmas snow, gently falling against a dusky blue sky. Whether or not you have a white Christmas where you are, you can enjoy the classic image as part of this beautiful cabin decor. Hang it up and leave it up for as long as you want to continue experiencing the joy of the season.

  • Lodge Decor Keeps Time in Style

    Rustic ClocksFor those who love the outdoors, a walk through the woods is one of the best ways to relax. It’s peaceful, quiet and free from the distractions that make everyday life seem so hectic. When you’re surrounded by towering trees, the cool air of the deep forest and the chatter of wildlife, you can forget all about pressing worries and cares for a little while. Thanks to lodge decor like the Rustic 15” Black Bear Lodge Clock, you can experience that same peace whenever you glance up to check the time.

    A tin outer frame and rugged weathered finish give the Rustic 15” Black Bear Lodge Clock an attractive aged look that’s just right for pairing with rustic decor. The forest green background color creates a woodland atmosphere and sets the stage for the stars of the image. Depicted front and center, a mother bear and her three cubs stop at a river to enjoy a quiet moment before getting a drink or passing over to the other side. Smooth stones line the river’s edge and long grass rolls along the bank toward the collection of towering trees that decorates the backdrop.

    Telling time is easy with this clock thanks to the contrasting colors. Each number is depicted in a vibrant red that stands out against the green. A repeating leaf motif swirls around the edge along with the numbers and is studded with curling “stems” for an even more attractive appearance. Two lines of cursive text provide the final touch for the 15-inch face. Appearing above and below the image of the bears, the words “Black Bear Lodge” spell out what the scene already suggests: that the people in your home appreciate the great outdoors.

    To maximize the impact of any of our rustic clocks, just add it to your favorite rustic furniture and other lodge accessories. The colors and motifs look just right in your living room, dining room or front hallway, and the clock will tick away on one AA battery to provide accurate time measurement as well as distinctive style.

  • Make Outerwear More Accessible with Western Decor

    Handy Hooks for the Western HomeWith chilly weather moving in, you want to keep your warmest outerwear close at hand. Try hanging the Rustic Barbed Wire Star 4 Hook rack in your front hallway, and you’ll always have a place to put your hat, coat and scarf so that they’re right by the door when you need them. This sturdy piece of rustic decor combines solid handcrafting with eye-catching Western style to create a unique accessory that enhances any rugged home.

    The Rustic Barbed Wire Star 4 Hook features a thin strip of metal at the center that mounts snugly to the wall to support four evenly spaced wire hooks. These hang down below a collection of three barbed wire stars made by hand with a twisted design. The authentic barbed wire construction ensures strength and gives the piece its Western flair. Because the wall hook is made by hand, every star is just a little different. The result is a piece that greets you with rugged personality and charm every time you walk through the door.

    This distinctive lodge decor can be used for more than hanging up coats. When placed in the living room, it makes a beautiful display area for rustic accessories. Hang up a blanket to have on hand for chilly evenings, hook a cowboy hat next to it and top it all off with a horseshoe or other rugged decoration for a one-of-a-kind collection. Rotate your accessories of choice according to the seasons to create a conversation piece that draws attention from friends and family.

    The metal and wire used in the Rustic Barbed Wire Star 4 Hook are not only strong enough to support whatever you choose to hang on them but also rugged enough to last for years. You’ll never have to spend another season hunting for your warmest hat when you have this unique Western decor on hand. Try it out in a few different locations around the house to see where you like it best or where it’s the most convenient, and enjoy its unique beauty for many seasons to come.

  • Make Christmas More Festive with Rustic Decor

    Christmas Stockings for the Rustic HomeOnce fall gets underway, it’s only a matter of time before Christmas bells start ringing. Before you know it, you’ll be pulling out decorations, putting up the tree and singing your favorite carols. Christmas stockings are iconic parts of the holiday celebration, but the brightly colored styles that appear in stores around Halloween don’t match rustic decor. When decking the halls around your cabin or lodge, you need something rugged like the Lakeshore Christmas Stocking.

    Instead of a red and white design reminiscent of a Santa suit, the Lakeshore Christmas Stocking features subtle colors and rustic images. It starts with a furry cuff that makes you feel cozy just looking at it and moves on to bands of blue, green, tan and brown. Each section features its own motif. Leaves appear around the leg, and the foot serves as the “canvas” for an image of a log cabin in a pine forest. Smoke streams from the chimney, suggesting that those inside are enjoying a heartwarming Christmas celebration of their own.

    The Lakeshore Christmas Stocking provides 14 inches by 20 inches of space for Santa to stuff full of Christmas goodies. Whether you’re hanging it up to hold your kids’ favorite candies or trying to give your spouse a hint that you’d like something special this year, it looks great when lit by the flickering flames of an evening fire. The rugged design is also a perfect contribution to cabin decor in other areas of the home. Make it a bedroom decoration for your little ones or the centerpiece of a holiday display in your front hallway for a unique touch.

    Made in the USA from fabric that’s 45 percent polyester, 30 percent acrylic, 20 percent wool and finished with other fibers, this rugged Christmas stocking is constructed to last. This puts it a cut above the mass-produced stockings found in most stores, many of which have to be replaced every year. It’s an accessory you can use season after season to complement wood furniture and make your holiday setup a little more distinctive.

  • Mirrors Make Cabin Decor Brighter

    These Mirrors Will Look Great in the Rustic Style HomeLooking in the mirror first thing in the morning can be a shocking experience. Replacing your plain mirror with a decorative Loon Mirror brightens up those bad mornings and turns your grumpy, groggy expression into a smile. This simple cabin decor features a beautiful woodland design that brings to mind peaceful ponds, long walks in the woods and the serenity of being out in the country.

    Two flying loons provide the focal point for the Loon Mirror. One is placed right at the bottom of the frame and is the first image that draws the eye. Wings spread and head held high, this loon is ready for takeoff. Above and to the left, another loon is already in flight, looking as though it’s about to make its way across the glass as you go about brushing your teeth or combing your hair. Wooden cattails and leaves round out the rustic decor style.

    Traditional mirrors tend to be made either with metal frames or as part of cabinets. The Loon Mirror, on the other hand, is crafted with a mix of ash, birch, elm, oak and pine wood. The unique properties of each type combine to create a rugged rim that looks beautiful no matter where you hang it. Measuring 24 inches by 39 inches, this mirror is just the right size for any room. You get a generous amount of glass to “gaze” into in the form of a beautiful home accent that harmonizes perfectly with other cabin and lodge styles.

    If you have a small room or tight space in your home that needs opening up, adding a mirror is an inexpensive way to do just that. Rather than spending a lot of money and time remodeling part of the house, you can enjoy an instant spacious feeling simply by hanging up something reflective. As an added bonus, the natural wood construction of the Loon Mirror brings all the beauty of rustic furniture to the room in one compact piece. Make this mirror a fixture of your home, and all those dreary mornings will become distant memories.
