If the popularity of the modern farmhouse design is any indication, refined rustic is one of the hottest decorating styles around. Here, 20 gorgeous examples of how to give your own home a dose of refined rustic character.
Brock and Chase are giving a lake house much-needed updates starting with getting rid of the rubber flooring, carpet and dated accordion door. Then, Brock creates one-of-a-kind barnwood wall art and sliding barnwood doors to add bright and modern home rustic charm.
Chase and Brock transform a lackluster 1990s-looking family cabin by giving it a beautiful open floor plan. The living room, dining area and kitchen come alive when the brothers add a large center island with handmade wood stools and ceiling beams designed to look like original timber framing.
Brock and Chase gut a lakeside retro guesthouse and give it a floor-to-ceiling rustic overhaul. They replace laminate flooring with wood, make a custom live-edge kitchen island the centerpiece and add a hand-milled timber door frame to accent the main room.
Chase and Brock transform an uninviting, rarely used porch into a warm and rustic family gathering space by adding reclaimed barnwood to the ceiling, rough-sawn hardwood flooring and a huge sliding door looking toward the lake.
Brock and Chase tackle an old river cabin and transform the living space with timber beams, wood floors and a custom entertainment center. Then, a wood slat wall defines the space and is accented by a custom black walnut kitchen island with hand-wrought metal legs.
When a family's inherited 60-year-old lakeside cabin needs updating and more room for gatherings, brothers Chase and Brock Jurgensen blow out the back wall to take over the huge porch. Now bright with a cozy wraparound view of the lake, the rustic-modern interior features a breakfast bar and touches of branches, barnwood and cables, while outside is a new pergola and handmade barnwood table for fair weather meals.
