Originating in the United States, rustic architecture is prominently used in rural structures as well as their interior design.

Rustic style architectures were influenced by the American Craftsman style, fusing it with elements of nature. These homes are designed for warmth and comfort, and usually featuring timber and stone exteriors so that they somewhat blend with their surroundings. The interior spouts wood beamed ceilings and large stone fireplaces. Homes considered rustic can incorporate many different architectural styles but always stay in tune with outdoorsy and Mother Nature themes, attempting to provide a relaxing atmosphere.
