About the author

Emily Henson has recently returned to London after many years spent living in LA. Her career has encompassed store display and merchandising for Anthropologie, set design, and interior design for private clients. Emily lives in East London and this is her first book.

At its heart, the modern rustic look celebrates the fabric of a home, from the roof beams to the brickwork. Wood, stone and steel take center stage. Forget sleek lines and immaculate finishes, this interior style revels in earthy colors and rich textures; in natural materials and the ruggedly handsome bones of a building. In this book, experienced interiors stylist Emily Henson and writer Joanna Simmons walk you through the Elements of the Modern Rustic look. Pure Rustic elegantly blends clean lines with muted shades of gray, black and white. Bohemian Rustic mixes texture and pattern with lots of lush color, while Pop Rustic teams unfinished wood with pops of neon and tongue-in-cheek artworks. Retro Rustic, meanwhile, brings an ultra-relaxed feel, showcasing beaten-up leather armchairs, brickwork floors and old wine crates as kitchen cupboards. In Details, textiles, furniture, fabric and display are explored, while Spaces shows how modern rustic style translates beautifully to every room in the house—and even works outdoors.
