Rustic design features wooden beams and panelling in the home construction and stone hearths created from granite or limestone. Natural materials are essential aspects in this decor and can easily be incorporated into your kitchen wear. Forget about purchasing plastic cutting boards from your local big-box retailer. Instead, slice your cheese and onions on surfaces made out of stone or other natural products instead.  Like a chopping board crafted out of %100 real birch wood.

The best choice for a rugged, nature-inspired look in your kitchen is to purchase dishes and table settings made directly from the ingredients of the earth. Choose pottery plates, mugs, and vases created in the studio of a nearby craftsperson, in shades that echo the elements: fire orange, grass green, sandy brown, the white of wave tips or the blue of a robin’s egg.

Cleaning potatoes for a hearty autumn stew is an important task in a kitchen bedecked in a rustic style but, as in any properly outfitted kitchen, you need to choose the proper tools. Quite at home in a traditional farmhouse surrounded by forest or an urban flat made homey with a rugged design, kitchen brushes created in Sweden out of oak and maple wood and horsehair exactly fit the bill for your earth-inspired look.

Part of rustic style is to source and use tools made out of natural ingredients. As opposed to buying and using mass-produced plastic items that won’t ever decompose. Hand-knitted dish clothes made out of undyed organic cotton yarn fit the bill. As do washing up whisks created from cereal root and made by visually-impaired craftsmen in Stockholm. These whisks are perfect for scrubbing cutting boards and pots and also as decorative elements to accentuate the organic look of your space.

Clean white walls in shades of vanilla and softly falling snow set off the dark grey tones of stone, the deep brown of wood and the bright orange of a warmly burning fire in a rustic home. The modern simplicity of this clean look can also be carried over into kitchen accessories. Like hand-crafted coffee percolators created by a ceramic artist working out of his New Zealand studio boathouse.

Decorating in a rustic style is a fun and creative way to move from our materialistic culture of mass production to a home outfitted in earth-inspired treasures. Enjoy your adventure in creating a stunning kitchen that will become the warm, beating heart of your home.
