The rustic style can also be described as shabby chic, farmhouse style, or even National Park Style. Many rustic styles were inspired by the original construction at American National Parks, but now the style has expanded to include more looks. Rustic bookcases go perfectly in your kitchen (to store cookbooks), living room, bedroom or just about anywhere in your home or office. Use one to match other rustic pieces or have it as a standalone farmhouse bookshelf.
The elements of a rustic bookcase include the material. Wood is probably one of the most popular choices because it is often found in rustic pieces like Adirondack chairs and log cabins. However, you may also find some metallic elements as part of a rustic bookshelf. The color can be dark or light and still fit within the rustic theme.
Full Rustic Or Accent?
Whether you decorate your space with a fully rustic theme or use one rustic piece as an accent is up to you. Either style choice is fully valid. Accent a fully rustic room with floral fabrics and other wooden pieces, or use clean-lined modern pieces as a contrast.
