The earthy tones of rustic decor create such comfortable spaces. Sometimes minimalism is the best décor style. It can be simple yet elegant, but refined and but doesn't look overworked, stuffy, or cluttered. Go ahead, use those easygoing colors and pieces with natural materials. Furniture can have architectural details that reflect our natural surroundings and look like they were just brought in from outside with little alteration.
Provencial styles include a country farmhouse, a Tuscan villa, or a French countryside. The color palette is natural, muted, warm, relaxed and welcoming. The color palette swings from neutral to rich earthy tones like off-whites, greens, and browns which are common color choices. And don't forget the textiles with texture & tassels.
