The rustic look is one of the styles I most associate with warmth and comfort. It captures that feeling of home that wraps its arms around you and invites you in.
The style has gotten much more versatile in recent years, showing its potential by mixing with anything from contemporary to industrial elements to create fresh, new looks that still capture the rustic essence. Rustic decor can be downright chic and surprisingly unique.
These five celebrity home tours are all owned by celebrities who put their own spin on the style. You can see some great interpretations in these rustic homes where budget was no issue, stretching the idea of “country decor” into something totally new.
