Modern Rustic Cottage

A fireplace and wood furniture and flooring bring warmth and texture to an otherwise unembellished dining room.

"There is nothing more stunning than a long dining table made of rustic planks of wood — and this one is the most beautiful I have ever seen," says Kim Johnson, co-author of the popular Desire to Inspire blog. "Along with the wood beamed ceiling, the extra wide wood plank floor and the trim-less windows, this space is minimal and it works perfectly to showcase these incredible features."
