Tulsa, OK (PressExposure) October 22, 2009 -- For those who own cabins and lodges, the interior decor is almost as important as the exterior location. Tony Brobst, president of The Camo Shop, has tips for using rustic decor and keeping it fresh.
The first tip that The Camo Shop has for cabin and lodge owners is to rotate out the rustic bedding in their rooms. Instead of keeping things the same, change out bedding - comforter and all - once a week or once every two weeks.
"I probably have five bedding sets that I change out once a week," said Brobst. "It's an easy way for me to keep bedrooms looking updated without having to do an entire renovation or redecorating project."
Another suggestion is to change out the rustic bedding with the seasons.
"You can have deer for one season, fish for another, and big game for another," said Brobst. "It keeps things fresh and keeps your lodge in-season."
Other easy things to exchange with the seasons? Throw blankets and area rugs. Not only do the rugs keep feet warm on cold hardwood floors, but it takes very little time to roll them up and put new ones out.
Brobst suggests doing the same thing with window coverings, like curtains and valances, in your rustic decor.
"You can either get window coverings that match the pattern of your rustic bedding, or you can find some that are a complementary color," said Brobst. "If you have things that are a complementary color, then you don't have to change them out as much. Or, you could only change out the valance or the curtains to keep the windows updated."
Handmade knick-knacks add to the overall informal mood of rustic decor, and they don't have to exactly match the decorations in your bedrooms. Blankets and area rugs with natural scenery make good wall hangings, and may fit a rustic decor theme better than regular paintings.
"If you have a room with deer bedding, you may want to keep your antlers mounted in there, and save your fish for the room with fish bedding," said Brobst. "But beyond that, rustic decor [http://www.thecamoshop.com/cabin-bedding-rustic-bedding/] doesn't have to match so much. It's part of the charm."
