A Mix of Charm and Modern Combines to Create the Rustic Contemporary

When modern meets the countryside in kitchen design, the result is sophistication. The rustic contemporary style is the perfect blend of character, warmth, and up-to-date luxuries. Natural accents bring a rural feeling inside, while geometric shapes and contemporary finishes maintain the new and current trends.  

Often found throughout Europe, this design can fit into any home, creating a countryside retreat from floor to ceiling. Starting at the top, wood-covered ceilings and exposed beams can create a fifth accent wall and add architectural interest to the room. The subtle features are what keeps the character flowing throughout the kitchen with this style.

We suggest incorporating neutral colors and natural elements throughout the entire kitchen. White walls with large windows can open up a space and brighten the room with plenty of natural light. Exposed brick and stones can also help to accomplish the right look. A floor to ceiling stone fireplace can warm up a kitchen to make it an inviting atmosphere. The natural stone will help integrate wood accents and natural colors with clean modern lines of contemporary counter tops and furniture.

With Italy-based Val Design’s Logica and Reef styles, it’s easy to achieve this sought-after modern countryside look. Logica is offered in multiple different woods and several modern finishes including matte lacquer, matte embossed or high gloss colors. A mix of sleek and natural, perfectly captures the rustic contemporary look.

No matter where you live, whether it’s a high rise in the city, or a colonial in the suburbs, the countryside doesn’t have to be so far away. Your home can reflect nature with a rustic contemporary design that maintains the modern amenities of the 21st century.
