Many people prefer rustic décor for its beauty and simplicity. Rustic style gives your living room a warm and cozy feeling. We shall tell you here a few things about rustic décor if you are planning to decorate your living room with it.

The covers and fabrics should also convey a feeling of the past. Even tablecloths and pillow cases are made from rich cotton canvas and decorated with needlework.
