It’s time for our second installment of gift guides for all style sensibilities. Each category of gift guides has been chosen from the super scientific Style Diagnostic test results in the coveted STYLED book (available in stores and online now, just in time for the holidays). Based on a number of highly accurate algorithms, we’ve found a way to categorize (pretty much) all humans into 12 style categories. Today we attempt to analyze our rustic friends with a nice little roundup of items that any cozy-loving, wood-chopping, hearth-stoking romantic would swoon over.
But first, some inspiration:
Plaid, fire, things that involve working with your hands (i.e. foraging for food, building said fires, making out, etc.). Got it? And Ryan Gosling.
Ye rustic folk live for washed linens, wild flowers, cast iron, and worn materials. A rustic home is always cozy, laid back, warm, lived in, and comfortable, so it’s likely our rustic friends often end up being the go-to hosts for holiday parties and house guests. Rustic people have an appreciation for the little things in life, like cooking a hearty meal with loved ones helping out in the kitchen, or getting cozy by the fire with a cuddle buddy. Rustics know how to make a house a home, and those around them feel comfortable.
Even Ryan Gosling thinks your rustic pies are so comforting, he can’t help but be goofy with you.
So, pull up your favorite rickety windsor chair to your reclaimed wood table, and dig into this hearty helping of Rustic Roundup: Our favorite cozy housewares, rugged accessories, and generally functional items, perfect for your favorite rustic.
