The rustic nomadic style is the earthier, less chaotic cousin of the colourful, prolifically layered boho beauty. A balance of rich and raw neutrals ring a note of inner peace in these spaces, where invisible roots seem to make an innate connection with the planet and the influences of all its continents. Decorative basketweave decor and handmade earthenware pots speak of global artisans, which are celebrated through displays on densely packed shelving nooks and in clusters that spill from every corner. In these two intriguing rustic nomadic interiors, lush botanicals grow bursts of enlivening and invigorating greenery that spills from indoor plant beds and from a tiny terrace that teems with life.

Located in HoChiMinh City, VietNam, this rustic nomadic interior features the low, linear lines of Asian influence. A wooden sofa design stretches an elongated platform through the width of the lounge that also serves as an integrated side table. A unique coffee table design features a low-profile slab combined with a more practical heightened volume; its lattice construction speaks of traditional Asian architecture.
Black steel window frames bring the home bang into modernity. The black casing makes stark contrast against the pale clay walls of the interior.
A cream woven rug makes a textural addition to the ceramic tile floor.
A collection of hefty coffee table books and handmade curiosities from the global market top the rectangular coffee table.
More intriguing pieces from global artisans litter a series of built-in shelving towers around the room, which builds the idea that the homeowners are well travelled and wildly cultured.
Earthenware pots and vases jostle for space above the TV wall in the lounge, whilst a cut log store tucks in beneath a narrow media shelf. A lattice room divider lightly separates the lounge area from the neighbouring kitchen diner in the open plan arrangement.
In the kitchen diner, the wooden Easy chair designed by Pierre Jeanneret has been selected to warmly contrast a cool grey concrete dining island.
Cast concrete builds the kitchen worktop at the back of the room too, making a perfect accompaniment to a wall of rustic wooden base units and open kitchen shelving.
On the opposite side of the kitchen island, three rustic stools face the three Easy chairs by Jeanneret. The low profile of the stools’ silhouette keeps the dining area from appearing overly cluttered.
A fabulous botanical display explodes a natural, decorative touch above the kitchen island.
The woven back of Pierre Jeanneret’s Easy chair complements the lattice construction of the living room coffee table, the room divider between the lounge and kitchen, and the kitchen window treatment.
Indoor plants spill greenery from shelves and pots around the main living space.
A decorative mirror reflects an arch of light by the foot of a winding staircase design.

Stepping stones lead through a border of mature cacti and palm plants.
Earthenware pots tumble from the edges.
Inside the master bedroom, bold, raw textures build a deeply satisfying decor scheme. A fringed jute rug underlines a rich wood rustic platform bed that’s flanked with spectacular handmade rattan pendant light shades.

The rattan bedroom pendant lights descend in front of a beautiful live edge headboard.
Built-in bedside units balance out the raw texture of the rattan with a smooth, streamlined silhouette.
A rugged rock face wall ripples a deep textural feature behind the bed.
Built-in shelves display more worldly goods. An arched door makes an elegant design feature that strikes rustic and contemporary notes.
A second arched doorway in the bedroom leads to the ensuite bathroom via a dressing area.
A rustic round mirror fits neatly into a small dressing table nook by the bathroom door. Louvre closets draw an L-shape around the other side.
Once through the archway, a white concrete vanity unit stretches below a live edge mirror.
A glass wall WC twins the shower enclosure.
