We’ve collected our best ideas for decorating your bedroom to effortlessly blend rustic style with contemporary elements. Each one features design details, reclaimed building materials, and vintage furnishings for a look that is anything but cookie-cutter.
Modern Farmhouse Makeover
Create a modern farmhouse look by layering salvaged items and industrial elements over a whitewashed palette. This primary bedroom pulls it off by pairing a sliding barn door and weathered bench with sleeker furnishings, like a midcentury modern pendant light. A few pops of orange and blue wake up the room.
An eye-catching wicker pendant lights up this relaxing farmhouse bedroom, but the real focal point is the DIY headboard. Its reclaimed fence posts contrast delicate gold and floral details in the room. Find more ways to incorporate reclaimed wood and consider the effect of pairing it with splashes of robin’s-egg blue.
Classic Country Style
Avoid matchy-matchy bedroom sets when embracing farmhouse decor. The best rooms look as though they’ve been decorated over time, like this one featuring a collection of distressed wood dressers, a metal bed frame, and antique drapery holdbacks. Burlap pillow shams add country flair.
If you’ve ever seen Fixer Upper, you know shiplap walls are a farmhouse staple for the crisp, clean lines they add to a space. (And, seriously, you can install one in a day.) Combine the shiplap with cool concrete floors, quilted bedding, and a hide rug for a more ranch-style sanctuary.
Looking for country bedroom ideas for kids? You can’t go wrong with red, white, and blue. The patriotic hues throughout this bedroom’s bedding and rugs pay homage to country living and brighten all the white. A Dutch door is an iconic farmhouse element.
Between forest-themed wallpaper and a ceiling paneled in cedar, it’s no wonder this farmhouse bedroom reminds us of a country cabin. It branches out from basic light fixtures with an edgy chandelier and green glass pendants. A fur pillow and upholstered bed frame soften the look.
Drawing on the colors of the beach, this bright and airy bedroom evokes a seaside cottage. The spots of red in the light quilt and the pale blue bed frame are muted contrasts to beige built-ins. Reclaimed wood ceiling beams, shell-inspired decor, and a neutral seagrass rug continue the coastal theme.
So you’re not a fan of country kitsch—do as the Danish do and find your hygge with a cozy, yet minimalist, farmhouse bedroom. Geometric fabrics play nicely alongside white shiplap walls and thrift shop accents (like the pitcher turned vase) offer timeless country appeal. Matte black sconces are a modern finishing touch.
Pair a tufted velvet headboard with mix-and-match burlap throw pillows for an interesting combination of glamour and country. The lustrous fabric contrasts with paneled walls and linen bedding. Salvage an old wooden stool to double as a bedside table topped with accessories for personality.
The canvas for creating a French Provincial-style bedroom starts with cool grays, eggshell whites, and warm hardwood floors. Against that backdrop, rustic farmhouse bedroom furniture, including a distressed bench, stands out. Found items and keepsakes provide old-world charm, like the framed vintage dress and sepia-tone photographs.
Better in Blue
As much as we love the signature white walls associated with farmhouses, we welcome color. This bedroom opts for a navy blue color scheme, weaving it throughout in a vintage rug and framed wall art. The bedroom is brightened by an upholstered bed frame in soft gray, as well as the crisp white ceiling and trim.
Boho Farmhouse Mix
Add a bit of romance to a farmhouse bedroom with splashes of pink and purple. Rosy colors repeat in the area rug, bedding, table lamp, and pillows. A hanging rattan chair provides the perfect place to wind down with a favorite read. The bedroom’s bohemian touches gain in country appeal with a Jenny Lind bed and playful horse accents.
What’s Old Is New
Country decorating is an ode to the past. In this bedroom, recycled quilting fabric serves as drapery ties, and an old metal stool topped with a tray creates a side table. Piles of white linens soften an ornate vintage wood bed frame.
Gray Farmhouse Color Scheme
Creamy whites and cloudy grays tend to dominate the modern farmhouse palette. This bedroom combines the best of both, while creating a little pattern play with plaid throws and gingham pillows. A metal basket is repurposed as a clever book holder.
This farmhouse bedroom goes country ranch with the help of a mounted deer sculpture and patterned bedding fit for a cowboy. A wicker chair topped with a soft striped pillow tempers the bold black bedding. Plank flooring serves as a classic farmhouse element.
