It also includes a protective polyurethaned coating on the top. A mix of charming details and relaxed finishes.
It’s like a happy polyamorous marriage of all three with a peppering of rustic and a dash of cleaned up modern silhouettes and materials…and 100% timeless. It’s as comfortable as walking around your own home barefoot without feeling like a stranger is looking at your chipped toenail polish or bunions in judgment. Settle in because this aesthetic is a judgment-free zone. Where you can, aim for vintage or antique pieces (though plenty of new pieces – like the ones in this roundup – have an air of age, and that’s okay, too!).
It should conjure up desires to sit around with your mom or sister, sipping on warm honey-infused milk. Look for something with nubby and noticeable woodworking, notches and dings and maybe even turned legs (for that traditional lean). A bit of metal is a nice touch and injects a modern energy. Because we all need a place to sit a book/drink/cellphone, your beds and sofas need these little guys. The hardware should be simple, though we won’t turn down something brass as long as it doesn’t steal the show. So much of this look revolves around dining, the kitchen, even bedrooms and baths, but living rooms…slim pickings.
Minimal art, a slipcovered sofa, and a raw or rustic (yet streamlined!) coffee table. A clean, slipcovered sofa in a fresh cream awakens the heavy rustic architecture – this is exactly what you want to happen.
You may not live in a cabin, but the point here is to mix simple shapes with heavier wood pieces (like that coffee table and long storage piece off to the right).
We sourced a handful of really cozy, welcoming slipcovered sofas in a light neutral linen or durable cotton. To shake things up a little, a wood frame like #5 below would be great with a plush cushion, and of course something leather like #12 could also work well as long as the hide looks and feels lived in. You’ll want the table to be a little imperfect but with clean lines. They pretty much round out the look of larger pieces. Use one next to your tub, on one side of a larger case piece, in the kitchen…anywhere you might need a little leg up or to rest everyday sundries to keep them in easy reach. The bench is the dress of the home…you don’t need much else. It’s one piece that pulls its style weight. Spindle frames – wood or metal – are the name of the game here, as are more delicate four posters. The key is to keep things simple and beautiful but a little special. And if you’re curious about bedding, again, straightforward and effortless is where your head should be when shopping. Washed linen or cotton sheets and duvet, a neutral blanket, and just a small stack of sleeping pillows. These are heavier wood storage pieces, sometimes with glass fronts or even something fun like card catalog drawers (such as #13 below). That’s the beauty of a weathered and well-loved cabinet like this. It fits just about any home or vignette like a glove. This is one of my dream pieces to have in my future home and i think it could work very well with this style. Agreed on the price point – but we always need something to dream for!
It has that worn, clean, peaceful, and spare look of a monastery for sure. Not to mention just looking at the spaces creates a calm and relaxed feeling in me. Shopping for worn simple furniture would be a splendid way to spend the occasional mom’s morning out.
I could linger in the aisles and not worry about the kids touching everything. They tend to be early morning so you can run out by yourself, swing through fairly quickly with your list and head out – or find something totally funky and serendipitous and take it home without the hubs judging you.

Fleas are different everytime but you’ll get to know your favorite vendors and locations pretty quickly.
I have always thought of their style as being a modern version of traditional (so have called it modern traditional), but it does not resemble this stuff at all.
I would have thought this style was called modern rustic or something that highlights the rustic/americana factor.
I am just curious as to your opinion on how to define their style. Google “four poster bed small bedroom” to see some great looking small bedrooms with four poster beds. Is this modern traditional / slightly scandi?

Any information on the hooks in the photo with the stool. And don’t even get me started on trying to find a good dresser!
It was so charming and cozy and she had piles of coffee table books on the table and it’s still #nightstandgoals for me!
The important thing when choosing side tables that aren’t the same, is to make sure that they are the same height. They don’t even have to be the same width, just the same height. In fact, having slightly different side tables does this particular decorating style justice, because it’s all about the piece having a story before you got it. A good trick to use is to collect pictures of pieces you like and then cut them out, close to the edge of the piece. Then, hold it out in front of you and slowly draw it closer to your eyes until it’s the size it should be in place. It’s a similar trick to that used by artists to measure up things in the distance, based on marks on their pencil, so that it’s the right size in their drawing.
