Ever since my Las Vegas Market recap on design trends, we've had a few requests to elaborate on the modern rustic style. Since we love it, it is no problem at all for us to do so!
The goal when designing a rustic style room or home is to maintain comfort, warm colors, and lots of woods. Clean white walls help maintain the modern element. Also, clean lines in the furniture and accessories help keep your rustic home a modern home.
Natural materials like woods and leathers are a great way to incorporate a more rustic feel into your home. They incorporate nature into your decor in a very stylish way.
Make sure you mix up your materials, using leather, metals, glass and woods to achieve your modern rustic style.

The great thing about any style is that you don't have to re-design your entire home to achieve it, just adding a couple pieces like wood furniture or glass lighting will go a long way.
If you haven't noticed, metallics are hot, especially gold with all the Olympic hype. Whether it's fashion, design, or architecture we love gold ambition.
This stunning architecture is simple, but so classy with its gold finishing touches.
Ever wonder how to translate all the beautiful gold elements you see everywhere and implement them into your own home? Modern furniture, metallic lighting and accessories is one way to start. And this wall covering (above) is brilliant, subtle yet bold.
Here's some help...

Not only do modern ceiling fans keep you cool, but they make your space look cool too! There's no need to buy one of those cheesy old ceiling fans anymore! There are so many amazing design options available for your modern home. Take a look at a few of our favorites!
A modern white ceiling fan can blend away into the ceiling or can be a great sculptural element if you decided to go with a darker, wood-finish ceiling as shown above.

58" Artemis HIgh Gloss White Ceiling Fan
Modern brushed steel fans are a great way to keep cool and look beautiful in an open loft setting, adding that futuristic element. Each of these fans (below) are like a piece of art. The two blades create a sleek and clean linear effect almost as if it's soaring overhead.
42" Fanimation Marea Satin Nickel Ceiling Fan
52" Minka Aire Wing Silver Ceiling Fan
The oil rubbed bronze finish on vintage, industrial style fans works great in a more modern rustic setting. They mix beautifully with the natural elements like wood, stone, and concrete while contrasting perfectly with bold colors.

Are you guilty of neglecting your patio and then when Summer comes around you wish you had a beautiful modern outdoor space? No need to put it off, just a couple simple additions can help you get your Summer on!
Pascal White Plastic Side Chairs
Simple, white spaces are typical to any modern home, but pops of color are fun too. If you don't want to do something more permanent like a door or wall, try some fun seating (below).
Zuo Allsorts Outdoor Dining Chairs
This home (below) gives you a good example of how important your outdoor decor can be, especially when you have lots of windows. Many modern homes feature open floor plans, which means you see more of the house, making each space important.

Often times, modern architecture is nice to look at in the same way that art is, but is it somewhere we want to live? Well, we don't have to resolve this design debate here and now. This super cool home, aka The Balancing Barn, is a hotel!
The reflective tiles and unique form are what gives this structure it's art-like quality.
The structure is eye catching from every angle!
The simplicity of this space makes it the perfect getaway spot. Furnishing a room with simple modern seating and wall lights is a great way to keep your modern space minimal.
