Recalling the simplicity of past times, more homeowners are using rustic elements in their homes. The look embodies a sense of comfort, with unpretentious materials, and organic shapes and textures. 

Look to these eight homes for inspiration on how you can bring that comforting, cosy aesthetic to your home:

 

1. The terracotta of the brick wall is set off perfectly by the white walls of this living room. They make a picture of familiar comfort when paired with vintage wood furnishings.

7. Play with textures in neutral hues to cosy up a space. The unrefined rug and resin wicker dining chairs used in this room come together to create an atmosphere that is spacious, yet warm.
