Here we invite Dominican interior designer Nina Katherine to share with us her knowledge on decorating with rustic furniture and how to make this style work for you and your Casa de Campo villa.

“The decoration with rustic furniture is based on integrating the nature into your home through the use of materials that have a natural look. This style will make your home feel more intimate, fresh, natural”, says the designer.

According to Nina, this type of decoration is very common in the Dominican Republic, especially in the decoration of villas and holiday retreats, although some people also use it in the decoration of their homes.

“Rustic furniture is typically made of wood, fiber, bamboo, wicker, rattan, guano, among others, making it’s look natural as possible. It can be complemented by accessories such as carriage bolts, to give it a more rustic and unique style, another material sometimes used is leather,” she adds.

For those wanting to really embrace nature, driftwood or even the trunks and branches of trees can be used to create unique benches, seats, tables and even beds, with this option you furniture can be considered a work of art!

To compliment your rustic furniture the best colors to use are: “earthy colors like brown, green, terracotta, as well as stones, brick and wood for the walls.”
