When one mentions rustic decorating, images of log cabins, ski chalets, and bear-skin rugs may come to mind. But succeeding in this style without becoming kitschy is all about incorporating modernity. Clean lines and a neutral palette will keep your space looking sophisticated. The new fall collections at CB2 and West Elm include ample options for this look, incorporating raw materials and rustic elements in a streamlined way. Also, be sure to include various textures to add interest, such as a leather throw pillow or a wool blanket. Guests will be howling like wolves once the finishing touches are put into your contemporary rustic home.
