Rustic Meets Modern And They Live Happily Ever After!



I talked to a client the other day who was showing us some of her dream rooms in a folder she was keeping. She pulled out a great photo of a kitchen that was both Modern and Rustic from the Celerie Kemble -Black and White book. She had concern that this did not work because a friend told her that rustic and modern should not mix! WHAT! Of course one can mix rustic and modern pieces and elements as long as they are clean and simple! Nothing too ornate, and each should be given equal balance in order to avoid over powering one another. I found some great examples of how rustic and modern can make beautiful music together! What are your thoughts? Can rustic and modern mix let me know!

The kitchen in question! Celerie Kemble -Black& White!

  1. Of course they mix! I have often advised clients, in the nicest possible way I can find to say it, to not listen to their friends when it comes to decorating. Too many opinions ruin a design in no time.
