Mt. ShadowsRustic Bedroom, Seattle
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Framing isn’t always necessary, though, if you’re going for that no-frills, rustic look in which authenticity and simple, straightforward materials are prized. Here, the wall studs themselves provide the framing needed to pull this map taut and tack it into place. The result is a room that seems very much at home in its coastal cottage. In fact, it almost feels like a little boat shed.
Go beyond white. There’s definitely a theme here: white walls. But this room has something a little more rustic going on with the different shades of wood in the room. It blends a weathered, lighter wood behind the rafters, a golden stain on the window and varying shades on the wide-plank floor. Don't be afraid to introduce a variety of woods and stains into your rustic cottage.
