Principle of Design
--The use of animal prints (cowhide, deerskin, bear rugs) give a more rustic and natural feel to the room
-- Variety of woods, (pine, maple, oak...)
-- Adult Scale
-- Unifies the style/design by creating a cozy feel
-- Shapes, textures, and colors bring together each object in a rustic room.
Ex. raw wood and iron rods for a dining table bring together two different textures to make the rustic natural look.

-- Low mass with lighter colors
Free form-- random woods and natural stones
