EcoChic is all about the contrast of natural weathered materials with chic lines and color palettes. So if you’re excited by the marriage of traditional rustic looks with touches of luxurious glamour, read on.

Mix Natural Materials with Glitzy Elements

Rustic style has surged in popularity thanks to design leaders like Chip and Joanna Gaines, who showcase the farmhouse aesthetic on their HGTV show Fixer Upper and their Magnolia product lines. When the rustic style meets wedding design, it’s inevitable that glamour and dazzle will be added to the mix.

Aged and worn wood is a staple of the rustic style, and pristine white is a glamour essential. Put them together and you have the definition of EcoChic.

Incorporate Sumptuous Texture

Wool, fur, and cozy textiles are a fitting complement for the smooth firmness of wood. Here you can see how sheepskin throws turn plain Adirondack chairs into a glamorous and inviting spot for star-gazing.
