Rustic Glam Decor

We're just a few months away from breaking ground on our dream home...assuming we ever finalize our design! 

Update: Construction has finally started - so exciting.

Another update: Our dream home is finished and we stayed true to our Rustic Glam design style. Check out our home photos.

Rustic Glam Decor

Here are the things we know for certain:

Rustic Glam Decor 
Our dream home will be rustic and glam.
Glamstic? Rustam?

Brick floor
Our dream home will have charming doors leading to a private courtyard.

Walkway with lavender
The driveway will be lined with fragrant, drought-tolerant plants.

Decorating with reclaimed wood
Our dream home will have as much character as we can cram in! Reclaimed wood where the hallway turns the corner? Yes, please.

Mountain living ideas
Three of the living room walls will be stone, floor to (very high) ceiling.

Dream home photos
The fourth wall will be wood, matching the windows.

Fire pits
There will be a wall of fire at the edge of our Endless Pool, visible as guests approach our house.

Rustic cottage
In our dream home, all the floors will be brick, including the patios. The vaulted ceiling of the living room and kitchen will be wood.

Chalk paint
There will be a charming drink station, complete with an instant hot water dispenser for tea.

White farmhouse sink
Reluctantly, our kitchen sink will be white ceramic. I'd been hoping for a hammered, nickel-plated copper sink, but apparently they're a maintenance nightmare. However...

Hammered prep sink
I will still have a little one in my drink station. I'll be careful with it!

NM landscaping
Our dream home will have this exact landscaping off the patio. Somehow, it will not blow away or fade in the sun.
Update: I was joking when I wrote that last part, but now we're in our home and it really doesn't blow away or fade in the sun. Check out our mountain landscaping photos.

Roof styles
The roof will be a mixture of vaulted and flat.

Glamorous closet
We will have the fanciest mud room you've ever seen. I don't know where the mud is going to go, but it ain't going here!

Outdoor kitchen
 Our dream home will have a built-in grilling area, neatly tucked behind closed doors when not in use.

Decorating with stone
Our dream home kitchen will be white and will magically keep itself clean. 

White kitchens
A few of our white cabinet doors will have vibrant decals.

Hidden pantry
Our pantry will be a secret.

Pebble tile on wall and floor
Somehow, we will have this exact bathroom.

Tiny guest bedroom
Our dream home will have cozy nooks that double as overflow guest bedrooms.

Adding character to a home
The doors will be full of character. All of them.

Decorative shutters
There must be adorable shutters!

Adding an office nook
Our dream home will be filled with decorative moulding and trim. In the foyer, it may even cover the walls, doors, and ceiling.
Update: Our Rustic Glam home is finished and we created an office nook inspired by the photo above. Ours has been featured in Albuquerque the Magazine.

Rustic artwork
Hallways will not end with a door. Instead, they will feature wall-size artwork.
Southwest interior design
There will be a perfect place to hang chili ristas. Non-negotiable.

Custom Pella windows
 Our dream home will have this quatrefoil window, no matter the cost.
Assuming, of course, that the cost is $500 or less.
(Fingers crossed!)
