Rustic meets urban design at Bobalicious, a tea bar located in San Diego, Calif. Though the seating area is trimmed in urban decor such as a graffiti wall design and tin ceiling, the service area is given a warm touch with the help of rustic wood paneling.
Tucked amongst the trees, this lovely house manages a nice balance between stately and welcoming. A mix of materials— tin roof, stone pillars—also gives it texture and dimension. Designed by Bill Moore, Chris Reebals and Emory Ratliff
This rustic-industrial kitchen features an interesting mix of materials, from the corrugated tin ceiling to the reclaimed wood open shelving to the sleek quartz countertops. The design team removed walls and upper cabinets to open up the space. Colorful dishware stands out against the neutral walls.
The design team removed all downstairs walls to create an open-concept kitchen, dining and living area. In the kitchen, rustic elements like wood shelving and ceiling beams combine with industrial touches, like track lighting and concrete floors. Corrugated tin between the ceiling beams provides a custom and unexpected touch.
The remodeled dining area -- in warm wood tones, muted gray-greens and charcoal -- exemplifies the casual, comfortable vibe the Kitchen Cousins were going for with this renovation. To add historic character to the dining room, stamped-tin tiles were installed on the ceiling. The tiles are in varied patterns alternating between linear, medallion and floral designs. An impressive chandelier adds a touch of elegance to the space.
The handmade, pedestal-style dining table with an oak top and natural concrete base has an architectural and modern look that fits perfectly with the overall design philosophy of this urban home located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Relaxing bath time accessories await on a rustic handmade stool. “Anytime I have the ability to add some type of stool outside of the bathtub it makes it more spa like,” says interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn.
The kitchen features modern design complemented by warm, rustic wood elements. A large wicker basket finds new life here as an art installation giving depth as well as texture to the space. For color, an assortment of wine bottles handmade in South Africa add an element of global culture.
Designer Brian Patrick Flynn says this large area rug that helps anchor the dining room looks like a chunky Nordic sweater, handmade with black and gray jute and wool with eyelash fringe detailing. A premium nonslip rug pad underneath protects the weave and helps extend the life of the rug.
The owners of this tin roof chicken coop wanted to create a home for their chickens and guest houses for visiting bluebirds: "We read that bluebirds like to have 15 to 20 feet of open space in front of their nesting houses. When we built the coop, we left the posts tall on the back side. My parents brought me the 'See Rock City' house, which I was thrilled to have because it's a great nod to my happy Southern childhood spent hiking and camping with my family. The Rock City birdhouse lets guests know we want them to be relaxed and happy in our garden."
The owners said landscaping was a key factor in the positioning of the coop. "We thought about the placement for several weeks. It made sense to be on the far side of the garden because it's tall and creates a separation between our yard and the street that runs behind our next-door neighbors' yard. It works as a privacy screen and looks like a charming shed or rustic playhouse. The screens across the front of the structure came from my grandparents' house when it was torn down. The major drawback to our design is the lack of a human door, which makes spring cleaning the coop no easy task."
