In the professional language of art historians and architects, the word “rustic” is used. This term means the way a wall is worked. To be more precise, the stone cladding that makes the wall look as if it was old. Rustic wall cladding makes the building look raw. Such cladding has already appeared in Renaissance buildings. They were also called “wild” claddings because the treated face of the wall was supposed to imitate a natural stone crowbar. Strangely enough, this was the way to decorate urban Renaissance and Baroque buildings for private and residential purposes, or public buildings rustic style is associated with the decor of country cottages and manors Another interesting fact: what does the word ‘rustic’ mean? in Latin, “rusticalis”, “ruralis” means rural, peasant sometimes with a rustic term, someone understands something made by a craftsman, not an object that

Tuscan style arrangements

Tuscan style – arrangements inspired by the Italian sun

If we were to choose among interior design styles one that is most reminiscent of idyllic, sunny holidays, we would not hesitate to point out the one in Tuscan interiors. Arrangements in this climate are idyllic, soaked in the warmth of a home fire, having the spirit of the previous era. The uniqueness and beauty of houses decorated in Tuscan style are enhanced by rural Italian landscapes, rich in greenery and soaring rows of cypresses. Let us, therefore, move to this enchanted land. Naturalistic accents come to the fore in Tuscan interiors. Stone dominates the walls and terracotta on the floors. These cool elements are broken by wooden accessories in the form of beams. Italian arrangements love massive sideboards and whitewashed tables and chairs. You can’t imagine a country house without a huge table surrounded by a garland of chairs. They are also warmed up by traditional accessories such as embroidered jellies and starchy tablecloths. Wide shutters, often decorated with shutters on the outside, are also characteristic for Tuscan interiors. Tuscan-style interiors are based on simple, natural colours. Most often we find white, beige and brown in them. However, they do not lack the colours characteristic for Mediterranean arrangements, such as khaki, olive, yellow and rusty shades of red. The Tuscan style combines monumentality with delicacy. We will find here a note of elegance agilely combined with rural straightforwardness. We are sure that anyone who has had or will have to deal with the Tuscan style will remember it with

How to set up an office at home

How to set up an office at home?

Unfortunately, these are the times. Tier 3, Tier 4, national lockdown, etc. without end. More and more small businesses will move from crowded office centres to the privacy of their own home. I want to begin by explaining the subtle difference between a cabinet and a home office. The origins of the office go back hundreds of years. Reserved for the master of the home, it was his asylum, setting the boundaries of his male world. It was theoretically a place of mental work, but above all, it was an exposition of trophies (books, antlers, or collections of weapons), which helped to build a social position. To this day, having a cabinet means a certain prestige. It is not associated with a place of paid work, perhaps with the exception of writers, philosophers or academics, but it serves the purpose of contemplation and isolation from domestic matters. It most often appears in residences, villas, multi-metre houses, where one can afford the luxury of a room that is not very everyday. A home office is an invention of the modern world. It means a place of daily, full-time or evening work, often as a second job or after hours. Sometimes it requires the possibility of accepting external supplicants. This model generates a completely different approach in its arrangement. Often the compulsion to create it means giving up other functions of home life. A corner is torn from the surface of the living room, stolen from the bedroom angle, or taken out

Rustic style Christmas

Rustic style Christmas – home decoration for Christmas

Although we are tied to the traditional Christmas at the family table, surely each of us has thought about going to some charming hut somewhere deep in the forest at least once. Christmas in a rustic style – decoration of the house for Christmas. But what is attractive in such surroundings? Certainly peace and quiet, but also, a unique, idyllic atmosphere that accompanies Christmas in such a charming environment. Of course, we do not have to leave the city right away for our celebration to be magical too. It is much easier to arrange your own Christmas in a rustic style. How to do it? Rustic style holidays – charming accessories that will create an atmosphere Admittedly, it would be difficult for us to turn our flat in the city centre into a charming wooden hut.

What will we need? Because the rustic style is very much in tune with nature, the best motifs will be those that relate to nature, as well as to the winter aura. A trip to the forest (as if to a natural shop) from where we will bring cones, fir or pine twigs, as well as short sticks that can be used to make our own Christmas tree decorations or other Christmas decorations, maybe a good idea. Rustic style Christmas is very

Renovation of furniture

Renovation of furniture. How to renovate wooden furniture?

Furniture refurbishment is a way to give beautiful but already slightly damaged objects a second life. Both souvenirs from our ancestors and those bought for little money at a flea market will have a chance to enjoy our eyes again and serve us for many years. What should a step-by-step renovation of furniture look like? Furniture renovation – really worth it A squeaky grandmother’s wardrobe, a wooden bed frame with numerous splinters of varnish or a table whose top bears traces of kitchen work and children’s games – none of this furniture deserved to be found in a rubbish dump.

With a little care and commitment, we can make the damaged surface shine like new. Renovating furniture could seem like a long and complicated process – in fact, it is not a task that can overwhelm an adult – especially in view of the benefits that can be gained from it. It is enough to thoroughly clean the furniture, fill in small cavities on the surface with special preparation and protect it properly. Renovating furniture – where to start Renovation of furniture should take place in several stages. To begin with, we must ensure that the surface of the furniture is properly prepared.

Renovating a wooden table step by step

How to renovate the table? Renovating a wooden table step by step

The fashion for vintage furniture is still going on, which is connected with the growing interest in second-hand furniture. Especially popular are old rustic tables, which are ideal for bold arrangements with modern or colourful chairs. However, before we put an old table into a flat, it is worth refreshing it, getting rid of not only a layer of long-lasting dirt but also pests and peeling paint or varnish. How to renovate an old wooden table made of plywood, veneered or covered with natural veneer? We present a step-by-step guide to renovating a table. How to renovate an old wooden table? There are two ways to refresh your wooden furniture. The first, the classic one involves taking an old layer of paint or varnish off the furniture and impregnating the wood with preservatives that do not cover the grain drawing. Varnish, wax or wood oil, for example, are best suited for this role. However, painting is becoming more and more popular, ensuring maximum coverage of individual wooden elements of a piece of furniture or even the entire table surface. Chalk or phthalic paints are most often used for such renovations. Although the final effect is diametrically different, in both cases the order of work is identical. Step 1: Preparation for starting the work Before you start renovating an old table, it is worthwhile to prepare the workplace and appropriate tools and preservatives for wood. It is extremely important to carry out renovation in a place where there is a constant
