Why is it, as the cold winter months and strong winds come near, many people imagine themselves wrapped up in a blanket next to a crackling fireplace in a typical Canadian home nestled in the forest? Because it provides warmth and simple pleasures, of course. The rustic style is so beautiful!
In the olden days, almost every home had a rustic decor. However, in the early 1900s, new materials arrived and won over consumers, like pre-finished panels, concrete, vinyl, steel, melamine and aluminum. Using these materials meant being fashionable; especially in urban areas. But, the rustic style survived.
