Trend Alert: Modern Rustic and Cottagecore – Add The Perfect Finishing Touches in Your Home

Modern Rustic


From ‘modern rustic’ to ‘cottagecore’, recent home interior trends are making an entry for autumn and winter with a shift away from the florals and prints l to something more minimalist yet quintessentially British.

Inspired by days of yore, ‘cottagecore’ is a whimsical and homely visual aesthetic that has seen a rise in popularity during lockdown. When it comes to interior trends this translates into lace tablecloths, patterned wallpaper, floral accessories and cosy furnishings that create the feel of being in a cosy cottage.

If you’ve got your eye on a more ‘modern rustic’ approach, this is all about balance. Finishing touches will be the goal to achieving this look, adding modern elements that are just perfectly rustic around the edges.

Wooden blinds are a brilliant way to complete either of these trends, for a finishing touch that will last. Swift Direct Blinds has got you covered! With a neutral range of options that will bring a bit of the countryside to your home without having to up sticks and move to a thatched cottage or to nail that ‘modern rustic’ vibe – look no further.

Designed and tailored for daily use, this range of wooden blinds are available in a range of shades, stains and colours, providing a timeless backdrop to your rustic themed decor.

Whilst these blinds are perfect for a living room or bedroom, they are water-resistant so they could also be used in a kitchen or bathroom. With the option for ‘extra wide’ blinds, they will be suitable for even the biggest windows in your home.

David Roebuck, Managing Director at Swift Direct Blinds, said: “Our range of made-to-measure wooden blinds are in high demand for those looking to redecorate their room to incorporate a ‘rustic’ feel. From light wood to dark wood, faux wood to real wood – there’s a choice that matches every budget and aesthetic.”
