Focus On Organic Texture And Raw Materials

Keep the palette neutral and emphasize organic textures (plenty of linen and rope) and natural materials to maintain the laid-back ambiance of country superstar Ronnie Dunn’s Tennessee barn house (metal, wood, and stone). 
Above the tufted burlap headboard in the master bedroom, an antique barn door track is repurposed as a picture rail.

Get A Murphy Bed

Imagine being like a boutique hotel when decorating a tiny bedroom. The plush towels, reading lights, and wait, is that a pull-down bed? 
Your far-flung friends—a.k.a. air mattress devotees—will appreciate the fluffy towels, reading lights, and wait, is that a pull-down bed?

Add Golden Accent To Your Bedroom

The centerpiece of the master bedroom in this Arizona ranch home is a 1950s brass Hollywood Regency headboard that the homeowner found at a local antique store. 
Its metallic finish was the inspiration for the room’s other golden highlights, which ranged from the campaign details on the nightstand to the 1960s tufted yellow bench.

Display The Art

Go For White Minimalist Bedroom

A mid-1800s spindle bed, frequently called a Jenny Lind after the famed Swedish singer of the time who toured America in a P.T. Barnum production feels complete in this bedroom inside an upstate New York mansion. A plant stand can be repurposed into a side table.

Bring Into Your Master Bedroom

The singer-songwriter Holly Williams’ bedroom has a foggy grey ceiling with pine cladding. The room’s centerpiece, a Restoration Hardware wrought-iron canopy bed, is a close match to an antique bed that belonged to her maternal grandmother. 

Holly added a rustic leather club chair and a modest pine chest to the otherwise feminine space. Brass sconces provide a pleasant glow while keeping tabletops free of clutter.

Use Salvaged Headboard

Matthew Gleason, a stylist, turned a salvaged door on its side to create a distinctive headboard. Attach the door directly to the wall and couple it with a simple platform bed to make installation a breeze.

White And Blue Bedroom

As seen in the master bedroom of this rural Connecticut farmhouse, patterned linens offer dimension to light, bright areas. 
The impression is nevertheless modest, despite the homeowner’s use of numerous patterns—windowpane plaid, vertical and horizontal stripes—due to the uniform palette.

Modern Guest Bedroom With Rustic Feel

Rustic, wooded homes get a new lease on life with fresh, white decor. An L.L. Bean plaid blanket draped over an iron bed from Bear Mountain Mercantile adds color and pattern to a guest room.

Go For Gray Bedroom

Neko Case’s upholstered bed is dressed with an Ikea duvet, an Eileen Fisher blanket and shams, and an Urban Outfitters needlepoint dog cushion. When she was in London, she bought the wallpaper from Cole & Son in the United Kingdom.

Spindle Design Farmhouse Bedroom

Use Spindle Furniture For Bed

While this inviting bedroom gets a dose of character from multiple patterns, the real showstopper is the bed frame’s bold spindle design, a classic country style of furniture that’s making a comeback.

Cottage Bedroom

The ancient wrought-iron beds in one of this Nantucket cottage’s bedrooms are adorned with century-old quilts in Pinwheel (left) and Bear’s Paw patterns. The Weaving Room’s new rag rug was weaved by local craftsmen, and the demijohn lamp came from an antique shop.

Be Color Passionate

Martyn Lawrence Bullard, the designer, isn’t frightened of color, and neither should you. A vivid blue blanket and patterned wallpaper go wonderfully with a seafoam green four-poster bed.

Bring The Outdoors In

While the brown, black, and grey accents of this lake home’s master bedroom may appear to be a little quiet, the neutral palette allows the stunning view outside the windows to take center stage.

Use Pink Accent In Kids’ Bedroom

An Aero cotton throw and a quilt from Thomas O’Brien’s first Target line liven up the 19th-century iron bed. Pottery Barn Kids made the slipcovered rocker.

Try Layered Patterns

Don’t undervalue the importance of a soft-spoken accent. In this blue-and-white bedroom, soft pink pillow shams and glass knobs play an essential supporting role. Accessories in slightly brighter tones of pink (a book, a basket, and a blanket) add a little extra oomph to the outfit.

Mix The Patterns

Start by painting your walls and trim a bright white for a bedroom that pops, like this Texas guest room. Then, using a rug and an upholstered headboard, introduce graphic motifs. 

Adding all-white linen to the top of the bed helps the patterns stand out even more. To keep the style fitted and classy, choose pieces of incomparable colors.

Have Cozy Treehouse Getaway

The space around this iron bed, which was once in a guest room in the main home, was designed by the owners of this Nashville treehouse. The pillow’s material, barkcloth, is fittingly called considering its surroundings.

Go Neutral

At night, white, khaki, and light blue shades provide the impression of a larger space (a particularly welcome touch in a shared room). Layer patterns inside the scheme to add interest. 
Upgrade worn-out wood floorboards with a pleasant coat of green paint, as shown in this Texas home, and dress-up windows with sheer drapes to play up the breezy vibe.

Use Waverly Wallpaper

Use Cozy Materials

Ashley wanted this space to have an “all-in, cocoon-like vibe.” The master bedroom of this Alabama cabin feels warm and lived-in with long drapes, a tufted headboard, comforting bedding, and a range of soft hues and patterns.

Go For Floral Print

The owner’s parents bought the oak bed in England in the 1970s, and it’s a handsome counterpoint to the room’s frill factor, which is consistent with the little home’s overall aesthetic.

Give A Touch Of Blue In Your Master Bedroom

The master bedroom of this New York farmhouse is charming thanks to a mix of salvaged materials, antique furniture, and vintage artwork. 

Blue accents—the painted vase, printed pillows, and striped quilt—continue the color thread that runs throughout the house, creating a unified, peaceful effect.

Go For Country Blues

A large wash of blue can feel as if it’s raining. The large-scale print on the headboard acts as a jumping-off point for the room’s striking mix of patterns. The comforter’s tiny checks look coherent, not clashing, in a smaller scale and lighter hue. 
The bed’s double dosage of white-painted walls is balanced out by ornately patterned pillows. Carr of @dreamywhiteslifestyle knows a thing or two about how to style an all-white space. 
The master bedroom in her light-filled California home is saturated with white tones, from white-painted planked walls to a white slipcovered chair to layers of soft and lovely white bedding. 
She replaced the original closet door with a natural wood salvaged door, installed black oak herringbone flooring, and added a rustic pine bench to break up the sea of white. 
Maria just hung an antique monogrammed tapestry as a simple and romantic bedroom starting point.

Make Your Bedroom Spring Dreamy

A vibrant blend of patterns and hues will liven up a drab environment. A fun bedspread (Tatiana by Kathryn M. Ireland) serves as a springboard for other design elements, such as a chippy vintage whitewashed bed, which adds character to the room while keeping feminine designs from looking too prim. 
The bold textiles stand out against the neutral wood paneling, and unexpected details like an antique hat mold on the lampshades give the area a unique atmosphere.

Play With Patterns

To further optimize space, upholster the back wall with the soft wool plaid fabric trimmed with nailheads to create a “headboard.” 
To emphasize the mountain cabin vibe in a more subtle, sophisticated approach, use materials like burlap lampshades, a wooden chandelier, cotton ticking and gingham bedding, and leather initials, as seen in this Georgia log cabin.

Go For Colorful Gingham

With a few contemporary renovations, this pleasant room offers traditional country charm. Stick to one color scheme and balance large-scale prints (like the floral and gingham) with small ones for a fresh, unfussy look (like the plaid and block print).

Modern Contemporary Bedroom

This room is a great example of blending old and new: A Martha Stewart for Macy’s cushion covers a 1940s mahogany four-poster bed, while an Ikea throw drapes across a set of 1920s English oak corner chairs. The lamps on the turn-of-the-century side tables are from Home Goods.

Build Bedside Bookcase 

If you have a small bedroom, consider replacing a floor-sucking bedside table with a narrow recessed built-in bookcase.
The space-saving nook doubles as a showcase area for accessories, antique finds, and bedroom-perfect houseplants, as well as storage space for your favorite books and bedside supplies.

Feel The Breeze In Your Beach Bedroom

The bed, which is clothed in a linen Pandora de Balthazar coverlet and shams, and the matching nightstands are by Seabrook Classics in the master bedroom of this beach house.


What Makes A Room Look Bigger And Brighter?

What colors, then, make a space appear larger? Choose soft tones such as off-white, blues, and greens for the best effect, and keep in mind that brighter spaces feel larger and more inviting. Here’s another way to save money: 
Consider using a lighter color for your wall trim and moldings than you do for your walls.
