Rustic exposed beams are in and are seen in vintage as well as modern magazines. On my recent layover in Phoenix I purchased a Phoenix Home and Garden magazine and have yet to tire of it. It's filled Spanish/Mediterranean decor of the Southwest. Southwestern home decor includes Spanish, Mediterranean including rustic, colonial, cottages, cabins, Spanish red clay roofing tiles, Hacienda-style hallways and courtyards - vintage or modern.
Using recycled lumber in recreating the Early California Spanish hacienda has been a popular California trend in constructing custom homes. One such vintage lumber company is located in the beautiful Temecula, California wine country.
Thinking of going for the exposed beam look in your home? It will work for the farm/cottage style and the elegant decor with either faux or vintage beams. Enjoy the rustic exposed beam possibilities listed below.
