Modern Rustic Decor For Men

Modern rustic décor is characterized by natural (or neutral) colors such as browns and greys and dull yellows, comprised of various types of wood bathed in warm lighting; but with all the trappings of a typical modern decor, which could include scandi type mid-century modern decor, or Japandi for example. These might include a nice L-shaped couch on legs, but with a faux animal rug or throw, with a rustic wooden accent wall. The modern rustic look will suit someone who enjoys the outdoors, camping and natural tones, but who also appreciated the fine creature comforts in life. Alright, lets take a look at 20 examples of Modern Rustic.

So whilst the above is a really cool rustic and masculine looking reading corner (minus the rug) we would swap out that rug for a distressed rug, maybe a red one to give the room a bit of depth.
