RL Picks: 8 Must-Haves for a Rustic Contemporary Space

Let these eclectic pieces guide and inspire you


Dress up your condo with feminine and eclectic pieces. To avoid a stuffy feeling in your space, make sure you open the windows every once in a while. "Maximize the use of natural lighting, or if it can't be helped, use neutral-colored window treatment and open the windows to avoid the stuffy feeling in high-residences," shares interior designer Van Acuna.

Here are eight pieces that you may want to consider for your condo unit.
