Rural Revitalization

A desire to maintain tradition prompts renovations on rustic structures

Implications - As aspects of tradition are increasingly diminished as modern aesthetics take center stage, efforts to maintain customs and conventional practices have become a priority. Seeking to satisfy the best of both worlds, consumers are combining the rustic charm of rural living with the allure of contemporary conveniences. This reflects the growing need to maintain the familiarity of tradition among the influx of stiff and neutral contemporary aesthetics.
