What comes to mind when you think of rustic modern design?
Does it tend to be more edgy and chic than shabby?
And what about black and white? Do you live with this combination?
While I have created many black and white modern art pieces over the years…
My own favorite black accents lean toward the traditional and are more romantic than edgy…they show up in my outdoor decor as you’ll see below…click to play the video:

To truly succeed with rough luxe, the art of restraint surely matters. Neutrals work like magic. But you also need plenty of texture, old, and new to add soul.
Who knows her way around rustic modern and a masterfully soulful design mix? I have been singing this Chicago designer’s praises for more than a decade on this blog!
Black & White Modern Rustic Rough Luxe Rooms: Michael Del Piero

Additionally, modern black task lights flank the bed topped with bold black striped pillow. A billowy roman blind filters sunlight, and a sumptuous shaggy fur rug warms a concrete floor.

Imagine how much painting the brick white modernized and lightened this space:
The exposed rafters and ductwork add to the “rough” element and certainly create a vibe.
How could you not smile entering this room for a meeting?
Del Piero’s travels yield all sorts of exotic and character-rich finds.
Talk about texture in this rough luxe room!
Who says you can’t frame a collection of framed mirrors?

White Rustic Coastal Cottage Design Style: Atlanta Bartlett & Dave Coote
A white rustic coastal cottage is a vintage chic example of pared down rustic country style. The owners, Atlanta Bartlett & Dave Coote, re-imagined the 1930’s rustic cottage to maximize the lovely light and to ease daily living.
A restrained white color palette is a testament as to the magic varying textures can work.

Pieces That Might Work With a Black & White Rustic Decor Plan

Antique Rustic Stools
Rustic Black Metal
Rustic Black & White Pillow
They’re not just for pulling up to a breakfast counter or dining table. Think about using them as perches and rustic pops for any number of spaces.
They can do double duty as bedside tables, a spot to set a drink, and on the porch for seating or a potted plant.
Here’s a rustic sideboard cabinet with a weathered finish from the Kelly Clarkson’s Collection.
This rustic piece would mix well in a space with a black and white color scheme, and feel free to think beyond the dining room!

To Complement Rustic Decor
Nobody in the history of rustic modern or rustic country design has professed a love of rustic burlap-tastic, scratchy-rough and nubby bedding, so let’s consider the loveliness of sumptuous, soft, more serene options!
