This is the kind of design that you might find in a country home. You can almost smell the pine as the windows let in the scent of trees from the outside on a summer morning. What really gives this space the rustic feel is the rich use of browns and beige. It gives the whole space a very earthy feel, which is accentuated by the well placed windows that let in a lot of natural light. This is key to using darker shades. You need either bright colors or natural light to help offset the darker tones. It makes the whole space much more inviting.
