How to Create the Perfect Rustic Getaway at Home


As we step into the warmer months, many of us will be looking to book the perfect location for a summer, rustic getaway. For those of you that enjoy entertaining and relaxing from the comfort of your home, a few subtle updates might be all that is needed to achieve that welcoming abode that you and your guests will never want to leave.

Here at Home Barn, we offer a beautiful selection of rustic home accessories and antiques that will refresh interiors with an inviting look and feel, meaning you can sit back and relax in style this summer.


Statement Pieces

A rustic living scheme provides the perfect base for rest and relaxation; creating an atmosphere that is perfect for a staycation. Weathered pieces of furniture in particular can introduce a heart-warming sentiment into the space, resulting in a homely interior that is perfect for unwinding in.

Rustic reclaimed furniture, such as seating and characterful armchairs, are just a few pieces that you can use to create the ideal relaxing feel. They will immediately create a bucolic appeal whilst providing the perfect spot for that early morning coffee.



An essential for entertaining and displaying your favourite possessions, a wooden coffee table or side table will breathe a new lease of life into your home. The scent of natural wood will transport you to a place of calm, delivering on wellness as well as style and functionality. Adorn it with an antique vase filled with your favourite foliage alongside additional pieces sourced from the local area for a characterful feel.

Restorative Retreat

When thinking of a retreat we immediately relate it to warm, sunny weather – and letting that light flow into our homes is a great way to bring a sense of warmth and comfort to a room. Adding a mirror will instantly make a room feel bigger, and can be decorated with an urn and foliage for extra character.



Exuberant and eye-catching tablescapes are also perfect for setting the scene. An easy way to create an impressive tablescape for those balmy afternoons is by introducing antique and textured accessories; such as vintage glassware and shapely vases filled with fresh flowers. It’s important to think about how you use and place your decorations at home, as they will set the tone and create a great talking point with guests.

We hope this blog has inspired you to spend some time at home this summer and create a rustic interior space that is as tranquil as it is stylish.
