Get the Look: A Romantic, Rustic Bedroom

Luxurious open floor cabin interior bedroom design with roaring

The romantic, rustic home trend has grown in recent years, and with good reason — it’s a style that evokes a warm, welcoming feeling. Any room decorated in this style is a cozy, casual resting place, which is why it’s perfect for the bedroom. Rustic can take many forms: shabby chic, log cabin, or country charm.

Nature Nurtures
Earth tones are good colors for rustic bedrooms that can be incorporated in a variety of ways. To showcase the wood of natural furniture, opt for a white wall and bedding. Shades of moss green, stormy gray, brown, gold, beige, burgundy, or dark orange can also set a restful backdrop, if you feel like breaking out the paint. A simple way to add pops of earthy color is through accessories such as decorative pillows.


Wood Works
Wooden furniture is the very essence of rustic, and the Ashley Bittersweet bedroom group (pictured above) takes the look to its highest level. Replicated rustic pine grain and antiqued hardware has a vintage look that falls right in line with this style.

Top your bed with a cherished family quilt or a spread with lots of texture. Hang sheer lace or linen curtains to let sunlight shine through, or choose drapes in the same shades as your quilt or duvet to bring the room together.

Details Define
It’s the little things that really make a space come alive, and they don’t have to cost a lot. Wonderful, affordable finishing touches can be found at thrift shops and garage sales. Look for soft knit blankets you can hang from a worn wood ladder propped against a wall, vintage vases or bottles for bouquets of fresh flowers or branches, and mirrors and frames that have that earthy, well-loved look you’re going for.

Lights On
Lighting adds ambiance. Layers of lighting — overhead, lamps, wall sconces — are key to setting a mood. Use soft bulbs and install dimmers. To take romance over the top, light a few well-placed candles.
