his inspiration illustrates how you can bring a rustic vibe to your city-centre apartment. Mix-and-match the right materials and colours to turn your living room into a countryside retreat. An exposed stone feature wall and large terracotta floor tiles are the ideal backdrop for displaying furniture: an armchair and a chaise-longue upholstered in pure-white over a cast iron frame, perfect for a snug corner. And a retro sideboard, perhaps an old family keepsake, is perfect for displaying black-and-white family portraits and add a splash of green, and hey presto: rustic style in the city.
