Dried flowers and long-penciled cattails can be used in their natural colors or be mixed and dyed in the perfect color to match your rustic decor. These make for a beautiful rustic display in a large rustic pottery vase.
Hand weaved baskets and dried grapevine wreaths are visually stunning and capture perfectly the rustic country kitchen appeal. Beautiful country landscape wall art helps to establish a serene and peaceful setting.

When choosing paint colors, consider colors found in nature. They should be warm and welcoming, such as deep rich browns, burnt orange, rust, tans, and greens.
For rustic kitchen decorating, your lighting choices play a huge part, look for antler chandeliers, wrought iron chandeliers, hurricane lamps and scented candles in rustic candle holders.
Make a point to visit flea markets, thrift shops, estate sales, and yard sales. You’ll be surprised at the treasures people throw away. Management may not let you browse around so ask an employee if they have put back any old rustic items they may have come across.
