Opposites Attract: Rustic & Romantic Décor

Two aesthetics. One unexpected combination. Pair curvy, French-inspired styles with all things linear and utilitarian. Here, items that bring these beloved looks together.

Pair Rustic and Romantic Décor

Rustic Features
Get this simple, utilitarian style with distressed furniture. Then capture that no-fuss feel with natural or reclaimed materials like wicker and wrought iron.

Romantic Features
Soften rustic design with carved frames and mirrors in Louis XV style. Hang vintage-like crystal chandeliers, and decorate with fleur-de-lis or rose motifs.

Our Romantic & Rustic Décor: Looks to Try Together Boutique opens Sunday, May 4, at 11AM ET.

3 Design Ideas for the Home

From Victorian to Country, update your space with these key thematic elements in mind

Victorian
Old house with high ceilings? Think crystal chandeliers in every room, elaborate mirrors on the walls, and oriental area rugs. Just add a portrait of the queen and hire a tour guide.

Traditional
Mix clean lines with cozy details. Once you have your classic furniture pieces, choose a color scheme, a few token conversation pieces for the walls (nature-inspired, perhaps?), and rich, inviting textures like plush throws and pillows.

Country
It’s all about rustic elegance. Pile on soft pastels, vintage-inspired accents, and floor-length drapes for an opulent look that doesn’t overdo it.

Our Decorating 101: All About Décor and All About Kids’ Décor Boutiques open Tuesday, February 19, at 3PM ET.
