Ever Wonder What Rustic Really Means?Written by Pat Stelzer
Decorating terminology can be daunting. Everyone has a preconceived definition of terms used to describe home décor. Early American, Colonial, Victorian, contemporary, and list goes on, each one supposedly designating a very different style. Probably one of most misunderstood words in home decorating is “rustic”. Visions of log cabins, rough-hewn wood beams, rural farmhouses or lakeside cottages immediately jump to fore when something is called rustic. Those are rustic, but so are many other styles and decorator choices.
Rustic incorporates those touches that help create a feeling of simplicity. Rustic style is artless or unpretentious, and it has a warmth and sincerity that transcends being categorized or limited to any particular time period. Folk art pieces are examples of that which fit into specific periods, but can also be classified as rustic, Cigar Store Indian or a child’s wooden pull toy. Early American décor benefits by addition of rustic touches like iron skillets or pewter, poor man’s silver. During Colonial times, homes very often contained objects or useful items, quilts, tin wall sconces or earthenware jugs, now considered rustic or folk art pieces. Victorian homes had touches that today would be termed rustic or countrified. Baskets, tin matchbox holders or comb receptacles, were as much a part of Victorian home as flounces, ruffles and lace. The trick is in selecting ‘rustic’ that fits decorating theme. A replica of a boot maker’s sign goes well with Colonial or Country, while one that is flowery, light and sentimental fits into more romantic Victorian.
