Rustic charm....

There's something about the country feel and rustic charm that just sets me at ease.  Maybe it's the fact that it reminds me of spending the summers at the cabin, or the feel of sand between your toes, or the solitude of a cabin in the mountains in the middle of winter ...whatever it is, I feel innately calm when I look at pictures such as these.  Two blogs I've been following for awhile now, Stylizimo and Nenna, are constantly taking my breath away with their beautiful (home) pictures.  Nina from Stylizimo and Jane from Nenna have a knack of effortlessly piecing natural elements throughout their homes, giving them that rustic charm that is so serene, and blurs the lines between country and contemporary.

Something about rustic decor just makes me want to curl up in front of a fire with a cup of hot cocoa...
