The Neutral Look
One of the simplest ways to bring up for a rustic look is just painting your walls.

So you can use tinge popped furniture in those neutrally painted rooms to bring in more animated look.
Use Mellow Wooden Floors and Furniture
The rustic style focuses on a raw and trailblazing living. One of the ideal ways to incorporate such a concept is to use distressed wood in the interiors. Wooden floors help to give that outdoor look to your home. If they are seasoned, you can get that rustic look without much effort.
Go For Relic Lighting
Lighting can change the overall look and energy of your home to a large extent. Rather than using typical chandeliers and bulbs, switch to chandeliers with real sconce. Farmhouse lights and pendant lights are also a good choice. Again, make sure you go for indirect lighting unlike direct lighting used in most modern style homes.
Choose Overlay Walls
Overlaying your walls can give a rustic style to your home and using wood for the same will make it much better. And if you want to make it appear less dark you can use bright wall canvas and hanging mirrors. This can help in digressing attention from a darker backcloth.
Pick The Right Retrofit
One of the best ways to get a rustic look to your home is by adding the necessary accessories. By incorporating terracotta and crystal jars of different sizes, handmade coverlet, vintage tins, you can bring the ideal rustic home interior designs in Kerala style homes as well.
