Stunning Rustic Decorating Ideas

Colorado Springs is home to some of the most unique and most stunning home decorating strategies in the States. Homeowners here have the opportunity to decorate their homes in any ways they desire, and many take full advantage of this freedom! There are too many interior decorating strategies to really list, but this week The MacGuire Team thought we'd explore one of the most popular decor themes for our area.

Rustic Home Decor

"Rustic" is typically used to describe decor that is woodsy, simple, natural, or outdoorsy. Given our mountain surroundings, it's no surprise that many homeowners in Colorado Springs opt for a rustic decor scheme in their homes. While some people choose to go all out, there are plenty of little things you can do to adopt simple, subtle rustic theme. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Old Wooden Crates
Don't throw out those old wooden crates just yet. You can use them to create shelves, wall hangings, unique storage compartments, and more. These crates can typically be found at several different stores, including Home Depot, Target, World Market, and Jo-Ann Fabrics.

Mason Jars
Mason jars have become incredibly popular recently, and it's easy to see why. These versatile little jars can be used to create any number of standard household items, including lamps, utensil holders, pen cups, candle holders, or vases. You can also leave them clear or paint them any color you choose. The possibilities are endless!

Old Corks
Corks are the only things that could possibly be more versatile than mason jars. You can use corks to create unique picture frames, bulletin boards, oversized 3D letters, and even coasters. The best part? You can collect your materials by treating yourself to a nice bottle of wine at your new home in Colorado Springs.

Wooden Ladders
Rickety wooden ladders don't have to retire completely. Even if you don't want to stand on them anymore, you can turn them into little shelves to store books, knickknacks, and other treasures. We even know of one home that hung a small, old ladder horizontally across the wall, and used it to display picture frames and their children's drawings.

Happy Decorating!

When it comes to rustic decor, as long as you use natural wood materials, you can't go wrong. If you're looking for a new home to try out your decorating skills, contact The MacGuire Team about buying a house in Colorado Springs. We would love to help you find your Colorado Springs dream home!
