Rustic Glam

I don't know what it is...if it's rough, time honoured, worn down with age, I fall in love!  Lately, I'm finding myself especially drawn to interiors that are eclectic, hinting at the unexpected.  Full of the pretty but wearing the patina of life.  Reclaimed wood tables (the best ones are by Craig Pearce at Union Wood Company), peeling plaster walls and huge sparkling chandeliers.  So beautiful yet so unpretentious.  Here are some of my favourite ways to go Rustic Glam...

  1. I love the rustic glam look too. There's something about rough & worn combined with the sparkly & pretty that really appeals to me. I especially love a crystal chandelier in a room with an exposed brick wall.

  2. Gorgeous images, very inspiring!
    I am a big fan of beautiful chandelliers and patine :)Bliss!
    THanks for your visit and yes I am loving BYW too just wish they were more hours in a day to go and visit everyone :)

  3. Love it!! I really love that whole shabby look too, it adds a softness and feel of nature to interiors, especially modern interiors!!

  4. I've always been a fan of this look too, kind of the best of both worlds combined...these are beautiful pics, the skona hem bedroom is perfection!

  5. fan of this look too...and of the 1st image!

  6. It's so lovely and I imagine it's family friendly since nothing is too precious. Great images you found!

  7. Rustic Glam, whoever coined that phrase hit the proverbial nail on the head when it comes to one of my fave looks. I LOVE it!
