Interior decorating usually takes a special mind. Blending usable space and aesthetics, while not ruining the feel of a room is a task that can easily make you feel some overload. Luckily, other people are really good at it, so we can just borrow their ideas and make them our own! We rounded up 20 amazing examples of mixing modern and rustic decor on Pinterest so you can find some inspiration too.
