Little rustic interior touches have bene making their way through to modern interior design for quite some time now but recently we've noticed a 'tweak' occurring to the rustic style. Instead of rustic elements being mixed with modern design, we are now seeing a lot of rustic design entering modern interiors.
To clarify, the new rustic becomes part of the design itself, such as a re-purposed wooden floor, a rough, industrial wall covering or the shape and finish of the furniture. Rather than finishing touches, the new rustic is much more all-encompassing.
