Rustic dining rooms are great for creating a cozy, welcoming space for everyone to gather around the table and eat. Rustic design alone is a stunning style, but what's especially nice about rustic style is that it plays well with other design families. Whether you're into mid-century modern or farmhouse, there are so many ways to mold rustic decor & design into your personal style.
Flowers and floral designs are a prominent part of country rustic styles. Your dining room rug can show off bold, contemporary flowers or feature softer swirls and twirls alongside floral elements. No matter what iteration of rustic style you're taking, including plants and flower motifs in your room's rug is a great way to complement the room's style.
Many of today's homes feature open concept layouts where the living room, dining room, and kitchen share a common space. In these scenarios, you can use rugs in each area to set each space apart as its own "room." While this example only features a rug in the living room, you can add a rug to your dining space as well to set that space apart and complement the living room's color scheme and tone.
Rustic styles often use greens, browns, and creams to fit into a very rustic color palette. However, blue is a great color to pair with different variations of rustic style. You can choose a very light and airy blue to harken back to a calm summer sky or you can use a classic blue to change the tone of your rustic dining room. These blue colors can come into play on the walls, in artwork, in accents, and/or in the room's main rug.
Symmetry is a powerful tool in interior design. When you use symmetry through your room's key furniture, built-ins, and lighting fixtures, you naturally create a tidy rustic dining room. However, within this base symmetry, you can add in accents in unexpected and unconventional ways to create a more youthful and modern tone in the room.
Perhaps your rustic dining room features a large amount of wood in the wall panels, floors, and trim. While it's fine to lean into that aesthetic with traditional rustic colors and decor, you can also break away from expectations by choosing more modern or mid century modern furniture. The juxtaposition of these two very different styles will help you create a one of a kind space that expresses your unique style.
Traditional dining rooms tend to be very "matchy" with consistent materials and colors. To create a more modern traditional dining space, use different types of wood and materials to create distinction in your design. In the case of this dining room, the chairs feature a much darker wood than the dining room table. However, the richness of the colors is what allows them to pair well with one another. Consider similar tones of wood when mixing different types throughout your room's decor and furniture.
Wood is a popular element used in rustic spaces, but other natural materials like leather are also aptly suited to decorate your rustic dining space. This transitional dining room highlights leather in the table's side chairs. The warmth of the material, its texture, and natural material all make it a great addition to rustic homes.

No matter what design style you're into, rustic decor can easily fit hand in hand with it. As you incorporate rustic design into your dining room, remember to highlight natural textures and woods, and don't be afraid to bring in some older pieces for a well-loved room. On the other side, if you like a more modern, clean rustic, you can still work with those natural tones in a more restrained, simple way. Even if you fit into some other design style that wasn't covered in depth here, as long as you employ those basic principles, you're well on your way to creating a stunning rustic dining room all your own.
