Minimalist design has been all of the rage lately, but there's always room for some classic farmhouse bedroom ideas. This beloved rural style inspires relaxation and comfort, no matter where you're located in the world, which is perfect for the space where you start and end each day. You could be smack-dab in the middle of New York City's hustle and bustle, but when you deck out your room in this bucolic aesthetic you'll feel like you're waking up in the middle of the countryside. Here are 13 ideas to help you create the farmhouse bedroom of your dreams.
1. Classic white walls make a great backdrop.
While you certainly can paint your farmhouse bedroom walls in any color you desire, there's something so deliciously chic about an all-white palette. The charming rustic details in former Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky's airy bedroom really stand out thanks to the simple backdrop.
2. Rustic ceiling beams are a must.
One farmhouse bedroom idea that's always a classic: wood ceiling beams. If your home already has them, perfect! But if not, you can challenge yourself to a DIY project and add decorative ceiling beams. They're a great way to frame your space and add beautiful rustic detail as seen in this bedroom designed by Jenna Sue.
3. Weathered accents add character.
There's a time and a place for weathered furniture — and a farmhouse bedroom is the time and the place. Lauren from Bless'er House took took this farmhouse bedroom idea to heart and gave her bed a rustic makeover with a clever DIY project.
4. Bring a bit of the Wild West indoors with lush greenery.
The glory of a farmhouse is its unique connection to nature. Add a pop of color with leafy plants and vibrant succulents like Ashley from the Little Glass Jar to mimic that earthy feeling in your bedroom.
5. Industrial touches are oh-so-complementary.
Just because you're decorating a farmhouse bedroom that doesn't mean you have to leave industrial style behind. The two aesthetics blend happen to blend perfectly.
