Want to create a home that feels natural but also has an alluring sense of Hollywood style? It sounds like a hybrid of rustic glam decor could be right up your alley. Think weathered wood, worn furniture, and exposed brick mixed with bright whites, metallics, and luxurious silhouettes.

These interiors combine vintage and revamped styles with modern pieces that feel luxurious. Still not sure where to start? Here are seven rustic glam decor ideas to get you inspired.

1. Whitewash your kitchen.

A lick of white paint can give a rustic design scheme a luxe feel, especially if you're designing a kitchen or bathroom. This rustic glam cook space from Refresh Home is a little modern with white cabinetry, a matching island, and natural stone countertops. Rustic details, like the bar seating and metal pendant lights, keep things from feeling too precious, though.

2. Mix natural features with glam decor.

The natural features of your rustic home — like those fantastic wooden beams — can look beautiful when paired with glamorous furniture and decor. Case in point: this living room by Ryan White Designs stays true to the home's traditional roots but also incorporates gold and glass accents.

3. Keep it pared back.

While glamorous interiors are normally filled with lavish details, the rustic vibe is a little simpler in approach. For example, Allison of The Savvy Camel kept her chic but rustic dining room minimal with a gray color palette and limited decor. The statement pendant light and brass candelabras add just the right amount of glam.

4. Add in luxurious soft furnishings.

It's fair to say that your soft furnishings can make all the difference to the overall look of your finished design — so go all out on the bedding front if you want to create the perfect rustic glam setup. We love how this neutral bedroom from Refresh Home combines a rustic wood headboard with oodles of textured cushions and patterned curtains.

5.  Add a rustic touch to your modern setup.

You don't have to opt for rustic furniture styles that are straight from the antique store — you can incorporate homespun pieces with a modern touch. And they'll look great with a luxe setup. Take this entryway designed by Studio McGee. The sophisticated console and lamps feel more relaxed because of the weathered wooden mirror and woven baskets.

6. Get creative with materials.

Paneled walls can definitely help channel a rustic vibe, but if you really want to go all out in your bedroom, create a statement headboard, too. This design by Kara Paslay uses reclaimed fence parts to produce a striped effect on the wall and corrugated tin for a stunning look at the top of the bed. Get creative with materials for a space that's far from ordinary.

7. Go for gold in the bathroom.

Whitewashed shiplap walls are essential in rustic design, and they work particularly well in bathrooms. Designer Jennifer Worts complemented the white tones in this powder room with gold light fixtures and a wood countertop. Instead of a mirror, a large art installation is mounted above the sink for extra fashion points.
