 1. Chic Rustic Inspirations

40+ Chic Ways to Embrace Rustic Décor, Elle Décor


Our first inspiration of the week features many ways to bring modern rustic looks to your home’s interior without crossing the line into the barnyard territory. Shown above is an Uruguayan Retreat located nearby the resort town of La Barra. The walls and floors are hand-poured concrete, creating an artisanal feel to the environment. Natural linen curtains drape alongside windows. The custom daybed is from Lucilia Del Campo, and we love how peaceful this room is without coming off too cozy.

 2. Trend Alert! Wood Look

Natural Wood is Trendy Again and We’re Super Excited, House Beautiful


Our second featured inspiration of the week takes us to all things wood – except wood is back in a way like you’ve never seen before. By ditching the classic dark traditional look wood has provided for centuries, homeowners and designers are opting for lighter shades of wood to offer different color options for surrounding details. Also a big trend, wood looking porcelain tiles, which of course can be found on our website,, and if you’re there check out our Baywood collection for a similar feel!


 3. Earthy Interior Ideas for Living Rooms

Wood is a great way to bring natural materials to a home interior, but there’s plenty of other ways to have an earthy feel without going overboard on the wood. Keeping it modern, the third inspiration of the week goes over all of the key points required to create a down-to-earth living room. Most importantly, focusing on what materials you’re using makes a huge difference and the color palette choices. Once you’ve selected those two, the materials and colors can create a seamless feel with your personal design touches.
