Today there are endless choices when it comes to furnishing your home, which has made it more difficult for people to know where to start or what route to take. It’s become popular to decorate your room according to a theme.
You can choose to go down a modern route with steel, glass and leather or a divan and mirrored bedspreads. The most popular of all is the rustic lodge and cabin look theme. The rustic theme features warm colors and is tends towards practicality and comfort.
One of the features that makes it most distinctive is the colors and motifs. The rustic bedding sets usually come in the colors of nature - brick red, deep greens, orange, blue and dark grays. The theme is wildlife and the wild outdoors. The motif is to evoke the relaxed and comfortable atmosphere of a lodge or cabin.
If you like the rustic furnishing you can decorate your whole bedroom with the appropriate bedding accessories, carpets, matching drapes and bathroom accessories. Most beddings in rustic style are available in a variety of sizes and sheet combinations. They come in all standard sizes - twin, queen, king, and also full and call king. The standard set usually included a top and bottom sheet and two pillowcases, but in many cases only a single pillowcase is provided with the set of sheets.
When you choose the fabric you have two options, flannel and percale. Flannel is 100% cotton and percale is 70% polyester and 30% cotton. Therefore the price also differs depending on the material you choose. A percale tends to be cheaper. The rustic themes you can normally find are woods, bear, fishing, moose etc. Those that are more inclined towards the traditional can also find a heritage bedding collection that some companies offer.
Some manufactures provide throw pillows and shower curtains to match your rustic bedding sets. To complete the rustic themed design, you can even go so far as putting compatible window treatments. The drapes match the pattern of the comforter and headers and tiebacks complete the rustic set. If you are looking to splurge you can invest in a quality handmade quilt in a rustic style or you have the option of blanket ensembles made from the finest fabrics also in a rustic theme.
