No matter which style of rustic decor you choose for your home, you’ll be completely on-trend. Right now, the rustic decorating style is all the rage and isn’t going out of style any time soon.

In case you missed it in this comprehensive guide to rustic home decor, there are three different styles of this popular type of decorating: primitive, country, and farmhouse. All find their roots in the vintage look with a mix of textures, but each has its own twist.

  • Primitive features more dark colors and Americana style.
  • The Country style encompasses the shabby chic look with romantic floral prints, rougher edges, and soft colors.
  • Farmhouse, the most popular of this style, is comprised of repurposed furniture, industrial touches, and that oh-so-hot-right-now shiplap.

Your living room, undoubtedly one of the more used spaces in your house, is the perfect place to add rustic wall decor. You’ll find that those touches help to carry the rustic style throughout the space. Here are 20 great ideas for rustic wall decor for your living room. Make sure to go through the post, as we offer some very useful additional links in the64  summary section.

Tthwallart Dandelion Woodgrain Watercolor

The look of this is all farmhouse rustic. The rich tones of the wood-grain-colored background make the stark black picture of the dandelion stand out. It will be stunning when paired with industrial style shelves, which would also have the wood and metal.

An important note is that this art is high-resolution graphics printed on canvases, so it’s not a real wood background, but the effect is still gorgeous. You get three canvases with your purchase.

Calatour Mason Jars with Lights

They aren’t traditionally sculptural, but the hung jars protrude from the wall, so we’re comfortable counting them. The soft ambiance that these Mason jars, a staple in rustic decor, provide with their soft light is unique – and uniquely farmhouse.

The jars are filled with artificial flowers, hung with rope on wrought iron hooks, and mounted to a piece of wood. The remote control for the lights isn’t primitive, but turn it on before your guests arrive and they’ll never know your secret!

Haitian Birds with Recycled Steel Drum Wings

“Haitian” and “rustic” may not seem to go together, but the different tones of the metal mean they fit very comfortably in this decor.
