Whether you live in a charming, bare-bones barn surrounded by acres of sprawling fields and forests —or in a petite studio apartment in the center of a city — farmhouse decor can add a sense of rustic charm. And what better place to channel that unfussy, hunker-down style than in the bedroom? (Farmhouse style, by the way, doesn't mean your bed needs to be decked out in matching plaids, overflowing ruffles, and musty quilts. With the right balance, it can look cozy and modern, too.)

Here are 10 of our favorite farmhouse bedding ideas, so hearty and warm you'll never want to get out of bed.

Consider adding a classic staple that you'll find in any farmhouse bedroom: a quilt. A neutral version, like this one from Coyuchi, is timeless and comforting — no mothballs included. Pair with a streamlined bed frame or industrial-inspired lighting to keep it from looking too old-timey.

There's nothing quite like curling up with a comfy linen bedding set — plus, it instantly makes your room look like a designer styled-refuge, straight out of a catalogue. Even better? If your farmhouse bedding idea is covered in stripes like this duvet cover with matching pillow shams, complete with button detail.

Linen bedding — particularly a duvet cover — lends the perfectly-imperfect vibe that's an ideal match with laid-back, rustic farmhouse style. Don't worry about keeping it ironed. The wrinkles are part of the charm.

Traditional checks and plaids instantly add country flair to any farmhouse bedding idea, though if you're not ready to go full-on tartan, a simpler iteration, like this neutral coverlet from McGee and Co., offers a more minimal, modern take. But that's not code for boring — the subtle geometric embroidered pattern and tasseled edges add dreamy texture and visual interest.

There's a reason wool blankets are a farmhouse bedding idea standby: Wool is incredibly warm and insulating, and it wicks moisture, too — ideal for drafty old houses. Fold a patterned or striped throw at the foot of the bed so you can easily pull it up on cold nights.

For the sort of casual charm found in farmhouses (cottages and cabins, too), opt for blankets of all stripes: ticking stripes, wide stripes, subtly textured stripes ... We're particularly partial to these cotton ticking-stripe numbers from iconic blanket maker Pendleton, which would also look lovely in a kids' bedroom.

For some, the mention of a farmhouse bedding idea might bring to mind their grandma's sleeping quarters, complete with a fussy hand-crocheted coverlet. Forgo the crochet, and opt for a seersucker comforter and shams with subtle embroidery instead. Pair with a simple sheet set to keep the look feeling modern and fresh.

The all-weather farmhouse bedding? A simple cotton blanket. Alone atop the bed, it provides just a bit of weight during the summer without too much warmth. And with a layer or two — like a comforter or wool blanket — it's crisp-looking and warm in the winter.

Consider a Nordic-inspired farmhouse bedding idea: Drape a lush faux fur throw across the end of the bed to add warmth and cozy texture. Pair with Belgian linens to transform your space into a luxurious country retreat.

Trendy buffalo plaid — in black and white, or classic black and red — wouldn't look out of place in a rough-hewn barn, but adds contrast to a neutral, simple bedroom, too. A little goes a long way: A throw across the end of the bed is all you really need.
