Rustic Walls – Trend Alert

Lately, I’ve been really drawn to rooms with rustic wood planks that were used to create beautiful focal walls or ceilings.  Personally, I especially love when these rustic, masculine elements are juxtaposed with feminine elements, such as in the form of a chandelier.  (If sources are not cited, click on images for links to sources.)


But, even if the feminine elements aren’t quite as apparent, I still like the look.







I also love seeing these rustic walls in little boy’s rooms.

This nursery is Jewel’s baby’s nursery and was featured in the latest issue of People Magazine.  I saw this on Emily A Clark’s blog yesterday.  She happened to be blogging about a similar topic.  I guess we planned it almost on the same day!

I’ve seen Jewel interviewed before and apparently her whole family makes all of their gifts for Christmas and all each year.  She seems pretty crafty!


I love this little boy’s room.  It has been floating around for a bit and every time i see it, I look for a while…   My sister actually did something very similar in her son’s bedroom years ago!  I wish I had a photo…

Do you like this “new” trend?

  1. I love it! I have always tried to bring in natural elements, and have always loved a more masculine/rustic element in design so this is right up my alley…it brings in character to a space.

  2. I love all of these pictures, someday I will do something like one of these photos in my home!

  3. I LOVE the rustic wood!!
    Great pictures!!

  4. I would love to do this to a wall! I noticed you have Jewel’s baby’s room in the mix. I saw how she did the room, and wondered how much of that stuff she was going to have to take out when her baby starts being mobile. Every one of your pictures are dreamy, I don’t know if I could pick my favorite.

  5. Firsties, cuuute blog. I’m about to be your newest follower!

    I’ve thought about how I could do this in my home, seems one wall would be easier than a ceiling. I wonder what the cost would be and how easy for a (somewhat lazy) diyer? It would def make the whole room! Thx for posting this.
