Everything you need to create a Modern Rustic Living Room

Each month I create a moodboard for a particular room, in a particular style and share ALL the links so you could in theory put this entire scheme in your home if you wanted to. Or, more likely, if you've been searching for a specific item for ages and it happens to be on this month's moodboard, Bob's your uncle - no more searching!

These moodboards are sent to my lovely email list one month before they appear on the blog, so be sure to subscribe here if you'd like the first look!

To kick things off, I've put together a Modern Rustic Living Room. So without further ado - here it is…


I have actually used several of these pieces in a recent project, so I can first hand attest to how lovely they are in person!

Let's start with the flooring, I have a sample of this one from Invictus and have just never seen anything else like it - it's a modern parquet effect, in LVT format (so super practical!) and comes in 3 colour ways.

This rug is made from viscose and banana leaf, and is surprisingly soft! It's really great quality and a good price for the 3 available sizes. We've used this in our Balham project (which I'll be sharing in a blog post soon!).

One of my all time favourite sofa styles is the Otto, here in Normandy Brushstroke which is a lovely fabric choice (it's dry clean only, but they are removable covers so a practical option too). The lead time on this is currently 4-6 weeks which is amazing in comparison to some other sofa companies at the moment - perfect if you need a sofa before Christmas!

The two cushions are both from House & Habitat, a brilliant small business to check out if you're in the market for some beautiful cushions. I used this floral cushion again in our Balham project, in the 50x50cm size (top tip: choose a cushion insert that's a little larger for a plump look). It pairs so well with other colours and patterns, so I've teamed it with this lovely check cushion to bring in some of the sandy colour from the wooden furniture.

I of course had to include a dog bed! I've adored this for a while now, and would 100% invest in it if I didn't have such a mucky pup! I did also find this alternative, if you were after something more structured.

Eye Swoon: Athena Calderone's Long Island bathroom

After flicking through Live Beautiful (a wonderful coffee table book if you're starting your Christmas List early!), I have become a little obsessed with rope detailing - check out Athena's beautiful rope ceiling in her Long Island home here. So you can imagine my excitement when I discovered this sideboard! They actually have a range of furniture in this style, so definitely one to take a look at!

And finally this coffee table brings just the right amount of modern to the scheme. I loved the marble top to add some lightness to the room, and the base is such an interesting shape. There's also this option if you'd rather something all wooden.

To save this post from being too lengthy, I've popped all the lighting and accessories below for you:

Table lamp (base only)

Another lamp option - because it's so cute!

Reed diffuser (if you haven't smelt this fragrance yet, do!)


I really hope you've enjoyed this style of blog post, and you like the moodboard too! And don't forget to get next month's moodboard a whole month early, you can subscribe here:
