Rustic Modern Design has taken the interior design world by storm. The appeal of this style is that it has a clean, functional look while maintaining a sense of character and personality. Modern design can sometimes become too bland and doesn’t allow for a lot of personalization. With the addition of rustic elements or period pieces, a clean, modern look can instantly be transformed into a personalized room. It is now modern to include your favorite flea market finds with your favorite modernized chairs, or your multifunction, modern light fixtures with a great antique armoire. Just to give you some ideas, here are a few great ways to incorporate the Rustic Modern design into your favorite rooms.

Adding an animal wall mount to your room adds an interesting and personalized effect to a modernized room. Plus, there are so many great (humane) options to choose from. Artists and designers are creating stylized sculptures of animal wall mounts in order to offer a great alternative to planting a taxidermy animal on your wall. There are ceramic and resin wall mounts, as well as some gold. I especially love the white ceramic variation, it gives a great spin to the idea of an animal wall mount. Mount one of these guys on a turquoise or mint green wall and you’ll have a bright, fun room to enjoy anything from reading to eating in. diy cork
