Looking for farmhouse bedroom ideas? Traditional farmhouse bedrooms are comfortable, cozy, and inviting. Here, the finer details matter, old is gold and it’s important to keep things authentic. Think exposed beams overhead, floral curtains, subtle rustic decor, salvaged goods, and implementing raw and organic materials in the foundation.
In recent years, modern farmhouse style has become increasingly popular. Harnessing country elements with a contemporary spin, modern farmhouse decor blends clean lines, neutral color palettes, layered textures, and natural materials to create a timeless look that’s bursting with character.
“Farmhouse interior design has its specific features, that on one side create a relaxed vibe and on the other make for a cohesive and curated style. To start with, the perfect modern farmhouse style should achieve a balance of practicality and elegance. In other words, nothing should look too fragile to be touched, but the space should still retain a certain sophistication.
To achieve that, hard-wearing materials should be preferred and mixed with cozy accessories for a home that is welcoming, stylish but also extremely practical for everyday life. The other main feature of modern farmhouse interior design is that it is a collected style. You’ll never see a bedroom set in a farmhouse home and matching chairs are also not so common. In short words, matchy-matchy is a big no in farmhouse style!” ~ Decorilla

Your bed is the focal point of your room, and choosing the right bedding set that reflects your style is an important decision. Traditional farmhouse bedding can instantly make any room feel warm and cozy. Vintage farmhouse bedding includes white bedding sets (often with lace trim), florals, gingham, checks, plaids, and stripes.
As with any bedroom, it’s important to pile on plenty of layers to the bed. This is especially important in farmhouse design. Drape a quilt or throw blanket at the foot of the bed and a soft sheepskin rug on the floor. Quilts and coverlets also add plush comfort and provide a cozy touch to the bedroom.
Decorative pillows are arguably the easiest way to transform the bedroom. Compliment the bedding with soft pillows for additional texture and pattern.
What Makes a Bedroom Farmhouse?
A farmhouse bedroom uses the same elements as farmhouse decor found in the rest of the house to create a soothing sanctuary where owners or visitors can relax and refresh. The idea is that the bedroom should look like it’s from a farmhouse, whether that’s a cozy Victorian in the Canadian prairies or a centuries-old estate in France.
Therefore, authenticity is key. You want a farmhouse bedroom to look inviting and feel comfortable. The same things that make a farmhouse living room so appealing and distinctive are what make a farmhouse bedroom easily identifiable: rustic elements, natural surfaces and textiles, layered pieces, and neutral palettes. When creating a farmhouse bedroom, shoot for that perfect blend of practicality and sophistication that is the hallmark of today’s decor.
What Is Farmhouse Chic?
Farmhouse chic adds a contemporary touch to traditional farmhouse interior design. It’s ideal for people who don’t like the stark minimalism of modern decor but don’t want a fussy, old-fashioned home either. Farmhouse chic gives homeowners the best of both worlds. Look for these components in a chic farmhouse bedroom:
Lack of clutter
Reclaimed or antique elements
Washed colour schemes
Bits of modern design
For example, you might have a chic farmhouse bedroom that incorporates a faded antique area rug, rustic shiplap walls, and heirloom dressers, along with a more contemporary (but complementary) chandelier and sleek bed headboard.
Cozy Farmhouse Ideas
If you own a larger farmhouse, especially if it’s newly built, it likely has an open floor plan and more spacious rooms than older, smaller farmhouses. This is great for the flow of our lifestyles today, but it can be more challenging to make the home feel cozy. However, there are a number of things you can do to warm up the space.
Start by adding fireplaces wherever possible. There’s nothing like that orange flicker of flame to make any room feel instantly cozier. If a conventional fireplace isn’t possible, try a wood-burning stove or gas fireplace. Wood-burning stoves are ideal for farmhouse design because they come in so many styles, from Gustavian tiled stoves to mid-century ski chalet models.
Resist the urge to paint everything. Bare wood and exposed red brick are also warming. Leave some of the hardwood floor uncarpeted. Warm tones in flooring tend to be cozier than grey as well.
Be sure you have adequate lighting: supplement overhead fixtures and recessed lighting with floor and table lamps. Use dimmer switches to lower lighting at night and install light bulbs on the warm side. Peach tones in lampshades also add warmth.
Other things you can try to cozy up your farmhouse include:
Add plants, vases of flowers, or dried bouquets.
Use plenty of pillows on sofas and armchairs.
Display personal collections on side and console tables.
Install window treatments.
Utilize a colour palette that’s on the warm side.
Hang plenty of artwork in gold or wooden frames.
Turn textiles into wall art.
Use French doors or portieres instead of regular doors between rooms.
Shabby Chic Farmhouse Ideas
Shabby chic and farmhouse decor have a lot of overlapping areas. Shabby chic tends to use more rustic or vintage pieces, together with whimsy and romance. You’ll often find more of a monochromatic or pastel palette in shabby chic farmhouses. What types of items should you look for to add more shabby chic style to your farmhouse?
Genuine farm elements, such as milk jugs, wine crates, and wire baskets, can be repurposed for new tasks
Furniture and accessories with distressed finishes
Rosemaling, stenciling, and other hand-painted designs
Vintage linens like tea towels, quilts, and pillowcases
Florals, leaves, and branch patterns
Whimsical antiques, such as old clocks, apothecary shelving, and birdhouses
Mismatched dishware and glassware collected over time
Modern Farmhouse Bedroom Ideas
If your farmhouse bedroom leans toward the modern side, as with chic farmhouse decor, your goal is to retain the feeling of warmth you get with traditional farmhouse design while still keeping the space fresh and contemporary. Remember, all of your pieces don’t have to be from the same period; mixing and matching from different eras will give your bedroom a sophisticated, eclectic feel that you don’t find in furniture showrooms.
Follow these tips to integrate modern design into a farmhouse bedroom:
Maintain a mix of rectilinear and curved furnishings to keep the lines from getting too harsh.
Use warm, natural elements where surfaces are the barest for a less sterile feel.
Add prairie industrial furniture or accessories for a modern touch with a rustic feel.
Blend contemporary art with more traditional furnishings.
Keep window treatments simple but warm.
Use lighting to add modernity in small amounts.
Look for lines and aesthetics that work well together, regardless of their origins, such as Shaker and mid-century modern pieces.
Rustic Farmhouse Bedroom Ideas
A rustic farmhouse bedroom is a great place to put items straight from the antique or vintage store. Look for furnishings that use natural materials like woven baskets, wooden bed frames, and burlap pillow covers.
Old metal beds are also perfect for this look, especially when paired with an antique quilt. Here’s a list of other rustic farmhouse bedroom ideas to explore:
Candelabra-style or antler overhead lighting fixtures
Bare wood beams and rafters
Hand-loomed or hooked rugs
Botanical prints or Audubon-style artwork
In-bedroom wall sink or washstand with jug and basin
Reclaimed barn doors
Nontraditional repurposings, like using a branch as a curtain rod, a ladder as a blanket rack, or a birdbath as a table pedestal
Non-matching nightstands and bedside lamps
Farmhouse Master Bedroom Ideas
More and more these days, people are discovering their master bedroom is their place of choice when they want to hang out, even when they’re not sleeping. You can turn your farmhouse master bedroom into a welcome respite from the world by using a few key design concepts.
First, divide the room into zones. The bigger the space, the more freedom you have to spread out and create separate areas for different activities. You will love having a sitting area for conversations over morning coffee. A bench or settee at the foot of the bed is handy for putting on shoes or housing a small pet’s bed. Likewise, you can arrange spots for putting on makeup, knitting, sketching, reading, letter writing, or simply enjoying a fire on a chilly night.
Speaking of fires, a farmhouse master bedroom calls out for a fireplace, so make sure you add one, even if it’s an electric wood-burning stove-style unit. You could add a little coffee bar or wine bar, so you don’t have to travel to the kitchen when you want refreshments.
If you spend a great deal of time in your main bedroom, you may wish to have a television there. That’s understandable, but rather than having an electronic screen dominating the room, think about hanging a picture frame TV that looks like a piece of art when not in use, or hide it in an antique armoire-turned-entertainment-center.
Since the master bedroom is a personal space, the wall opposite the head of the bed and the ceiling above the bed are two areas you probably spend the most time looking at. Therefore, make the most of these surfaces. If you have an accent wall of reclaimed lumber or old brick, that’s the place to put it. Think about adding beautiful wooden beams or shiplap to the ceiling. You could even commission someone to paint a nature scene there.
Avoid bright hues in the bedroom if you want to create a more restful environment. If beige and grey aren’t your cup of tea, use soft pastels or faded ocean colours. Shades of white and cream layered on each other are gorgeous in a bedroom, too.
Don’t forget to put all the bedroom lights on dimmer switches. Add small accent lamps for low lighting and group jars of candles together for a more cozy and fragrant atmosphere at night or on rainy days.
Farmhouse Bedroom on a Budget
One of the best things about farmhouse style is that it can be very budget-friendly. If you scour antique and vintage shops for finds, you’re sure to discover bargains that no one else will have. Other budget ideas include:
Use old barn doors or wooden shutters as a headboard.
Turn small dressers into nightstands with tons of storage.
Make your own artwork from family photographs, old maps, or vintage nautical charts.
Bring garden items indoors for benches, side tables, and reading chairs.
Buy vintage bedding.
Reuse the frames from ugly old thrift shop art.
Hide ugly overhead light fixtures or bare bulbs with chandelier-style cover kits.
Convert industrial-style pantry shelving into spaces for books and mementos.
Make a picture gallery wall or hang a beautiful blanket for an accent.
Stack old chests or suitcases for interest that doubles as storage.
Mix reproduction antique furniture and accessories with the real deal.
Invest your money where you’ll appreciate it the most, such as a quality bed and luxurious pillows.
Farmhouse Bedroom Colours
You’ve probably noticed a theme here when I talk about colours for the farmhouse bedroom. I always recommend keeping bedrooms soothing by using a muted colour palette, which reflects the home’s palette in general. Since farmhouse style incorporates many natural elements, it’s easy to follow nature with wood tones, soft sage green, and the pale greys of river rocks.
You should pick a colour scheme you like and won’t tire of for your bedroom, since you spend so much time there. If you’re worried that you’ll get bored with it, use ivory as a base, for example, and rotate accessory colours, like pillows and duvets, with the seasons.
Finally, it can be fun to use different colour combinations for each of your bedrooms, particularly if you have a couple of guest rooms. Each will look distinctive and unique, which is fun when you have company overnight. Try pale celadon, washed pink, or faded robin’s egg blue if you want an alternative to neutrals. Remember to add lots of natural wood and stone, and you’ll have the perfect combination to lull visitors into a wonderful sleep.

This stunning ranch style house is perched high on a hilltop and nestled among the trees claiming its rightful place on a scenic 200-acre property in Texas. The owner desired an ample yet understated home with natural and simple architectural expression that would blend effortlessly into the landscape that surrounds it. Heavy timber columns and stone walls ground the home to the site. Reclaimed siding and simple barn-like structures give the architecture a sense of history and regional belonging. Referencing the owner’s love of the old west, many of the interior walls showcase the same stone and wood that is on the exterior of the home. This gesture alludes to a time when materials were not mass produced but simply gathered from the area and formed as needed.
