Mix Textures to Create a Rustic Home
Posted on October 17 2017
When Jeremy & I looked for our first apartment in Downtown Columbus, we were open to anything that was affordable. We came to find that wasn't true. Our primary must-haves became two distinct textures commonly found in historic buildings: Exposed brick and hardwood floors. Those must-haves haven't left our list since.

A variety in material and texture is necessary if you want a rustic, historic feel in your home. What classifies as a texture?
Start small when testing texture combos and find what works best for you. Some great combinations to get started with:
Glass & Metal
Metal & Wood
Brick & Glass
At Cultivated Candle Co., we love playing with these different elements in all the pieces we either find, restore or create. From wood, to metal, to glass, candles can add that additional piece of texture to your home.
