Rustic Furniture

Remember that Happy Home Academy challenge focused on so-called Rustic themes? The one with all kinds of furniture that definitely wasn’t rustic? Yeah, that’s not the kind of new furniture I’m talking about. This would be more a drawing together of pieces that already exist to create a more unified look.

Cabin and Ranch furniture is great, and so is the Alpine theme. But it’s sort of like the kind of place you get when you retire and buy a second home somewhere in the mountains or in the middle of an open plain — “rustic” with quotation marks because it’s supposed to be pretty and attractive.

Some of the Cabin furniture, like the chair, fits that already, but I’m thinking something more like the Cyrus variations of Cabin furniture in New Leaf. Those used birch instead of dark wood and generally looked a lot rougher, which really fits with the idea of rustic.

Instead of leaving it at just a palette swap, though, it should incorporate pieces like the potbelly stove, because you can’t get more rustic than that, along with the hearth item with its massive cookpot in the center of the room.

Add in a cot, some mosquito netting, and make the lantern count as part of the set, and you’ve got yourself a nice little place in the boonies.
