Sudden Combination: Blue and Rustic Rooms

What kinds of rooms do you think about when you consider this color blue? I picture cool Art Deco Miami, coastal cottages, possibly an elegant area designed around a exotic ikat print. I had never thought of blue like a color that really went with a rough-and-tumble rustic style until I saw that the space together with the buffalo wall below. A quick keyword search of”rustic” and”gloomy” on Houzz turned up all types of unexpected and interesting spaces. I have picked a few of my favorites to share with you.

A bit of the ideal color of blue can make all of the difference in a room. This color against the weathered wood generates the look of wood reclaimed from a barn with an ad painted onto it. The result is unique and fun.

Structures, Inc..

This kitchen is a fantastic mixture of polished and rough touches. The watery, iridescent backsplash adds color and shine, while the rough industrial and boards pendants include a farmhouse feeling.

Bluebell Kitchens

Of course that amazing cow is the entire attention-grabber in this kitchen. Other touches, like the rich wood into the right, the brass chandelier, and the oversize basket give it the feeling of a French farmhouse. American kitchens have a tendency to feel too matchy-matchy, and this row of powder-blue cabinets makes certain that is not the case .


This home in Woodstock, New York is just another wonderful mixture of elegant and rustic, which Vanessa Brunner deemed”country glamour.” I think it’s a perfect way to describe the style. This natural fiber rug, woven basket, original fireplace moldings and antique candle stand include patina and character to the space.

A classic cabinet complete with chippy paint is a clever alternative to a typical dressing table. The new coat of blue paint on the walls and crisply ironed valances give the toilet a clean look in general.

This historical home in Austin, Texas welcomes guests with a pleasing light blue entryway. Notice the way they same color is used on the walls, trim, door and even on the bench.

Reclaimed boards, a hardwood flooring, exposed beams and metal lamps bring from the rustic; the blue brings in the color and the fabulous pattern onto the tiles.

Wondering about these tiles? They are Cuban Heritage Design Handmade Cement Tiles.

The Workshops of David T. Smith

The Workshops of David T. Smith create amazing new cabinets that look like they have a lot of years on them. This specific row of cabinets has been created to get a house built in the 1720s, and it hides a stove at the center cabinet.
