While we’ve seen rustic and countryside fashions come and go, this style takes the very best elements from nature and architecture to create a look that is both striking and serene. Very Vontrapp draws inspiration from textures and elements found in nature like chopped wood, nettles, and foliage, sans the splinters. Creating this polished look is really quite simple.
Now that we’ve discussed transparency, whimsical patterns, and tonal blue waves, it’s time to get a little warmer. Very Vontrapp offers a cozy-up-to-the-fire take on rustic countryside with sophisticated features to offset the structured, architectural influenced style. The juxtaposition of feminine, frothy elements combined with the hard rigor of the outdoors makes quite a striking combination, all while remaining warm and inviting. How is that possible you ask? Well that’s what we’re here for! Start with a more masculine interior as your base; cedar, slate, and steel fixtures and industrial lighting are all great for that. Next, choose fabrics that are both heavy and textured and light and gauzy to play up the cabin feel without weighing down the design. We like to pair voluminous pillows and throws with muted, softer comforters and linen for a downplayed vibe. Lastly, add touches of femininity and flare with furniture and accessories that round out the look. Some of our favorite styling is pairing metallic hardware with organic materials like limestone and agate to add an elegant accent or sleek finishes like marble trays and tableware to a chunky cedar dining nook.
However you create the look, Very Vontrapp is an airy and inviting trend that is complementary to many home styles, not just your Tahoe vacation cabin. Now that you’ve got a simple how-to, we can’t wait to see how many woodsy getaway inspired spaces pop up on our radar!
