1. Combine different styles for a rustic feel

Rustic bedroom decor

There are no hard-and-fast rules with rustic decor. It can include all manor of styles from traditional to country to modern, and quite often involves a combination of all three.

Take this bedroom, for example. It combines a modern reclaimed wooden headboard and geometric bookcase with a humble country-style print on the wall. The festoon lights even add a hint of industrial style. The mix is quietly eclectic and totally restful.

2. Layer textures for the ultimate rustic bedroom

Full of rustic richness, this bedroom is bursting with tactile textures that you just want to touch. From the rattan storage cases to the bamboo ladder, the grass-cloth blanket to the chunky timber stool, the overall vibe is incredibly inviting.

The tranquil colour palette is inspired by soothing sun-baked tones, making you want to kick back and relax, while a fluffy rug brings a layer of softness to the room.

3. Dark and dramatic hues

The dark hues against the stark white backdrop set a dramatic tone in this sophisticated rustic bedroom, while the rich wooden elements and rattan pendant offer a harmonious mix of materials.

Over-sized earthenware pots might not be the most obvious choice for a bedroom, but they’ll instantly convey a modern rustic feel while providing quirky storage space for items such as rolls of wrapping paper, umbrellas, or even laundry.

4. Modern rustic bedroom ideas

In this modern rustic bedroom, industrial touches, like the distressed metal factory light, are mixed with more rustic pieces, such as the white-washed flooring and weathered-wood headboard.

Cool linens in a washed-out palette bring a soothing edge to the harder industrial design elements of the room and help to add a softness to the overall scheme.

5. Add a feature wall

Does your bedroom lack a focal point or architectural features? Try bringing attention to the wall behind the bed with modern rustic wallpaper or a mural depicting rusty metal. Not only will it create a bold statement, but it will also add buckets of character to a plain, boxy room.

To create a sophisticated and elegant feel, use layers of sumptuous textures, like a thick pile carpet, chunky wool throw, and an upholstered bedhead.

6. Rustic bedroom ideas on a budget

Rustic bedroom ideas on a budget

Create the ultimate cosy retreat that’s good for the soul by painting your walls in a deep, dark tone. You’ll instantly feel safe and cocooned in your cave-like sleep space, away from the stresses of the day.

Play on the simplicity of the look by introducing rustic textures, such as a primitive wooden stool and macrame wall hanging, and pop in a few wide-reaching palms. The result will be a laidback escape that will soothe and restore.

7. Simple rustic bedroom wall decor

Only have a small budget but want to impress with fabulous rustic wall decorations? Head out to your local woods and forage for two large (and attractive) branches, then suspend them from fishing wire for a rustic wall hanging.

Why not make these items the basis of a seasonal display that you change up through the year? For example, adorn them with fairy lights at Christmas, or pretty, colourful leaves and pine cones in autumn. You could even hang family photos from them for a playful twist on your ‘family tree’.

8. Rustic country bedroom decorating ideas

Wide-plank weathered wood cladding brings the outside in, adding a lovely rustic warmth to this otherwise neutral bedroom.

An elegant bedframe reinforces the room’s old-fashioned rustic charms, while cool linen curtains and a sophisticated lamp give a nod to its elegant side.

9. Rustic bedroom ideas for small rooms

Love the rustic trend but think your compact bedroom is too small to pull it off? Think again. The key is to nail the rustic vibe through the room’s main features, such as the bed and bedside tables, and keep the rest of the room simple.

Rich wooden nightstands are a great way of conveying a modern country feel, while bedlinen in warm calming neutral tones brings a refined rusticity.

10. Rustic girl bedroom ideas

Green is naturally a soothing tone and will have the perfect calming influence in a girl’s bedroom. To keep the mood young and playful, a mattress on reclaimed crates will give the bed a casual, laidback look.

For a touch of romance, collect wispy bunches of wildflowers and dot them about in pretty vases.

11. Master bedroom rustic ideas

An exposed brick wall gives this otherwise neutral bedroom a touch of rustic ambience, while the crisp white furniture offers a nice contrast to the roughness of the wall.

Chic white furniture is a good choice for a modern classic look that won’t date, while luxurious linens in verdant tones lend a soothing note.

12. Rustic French bedroom ideas

Rustic doesn’t always have to mean a muted palette or oodles of natural textures. In this French-inspired rustic bedroom, a feminine palette of sugary pastels and crisp white evokes a romantic feel, while soft and gentle fibres rule.

Floaty fabrics hang over the bed and give way to bunches of French lavender that hint of rustic Provencal-style for an extra hit of allure.

13. Rustic baby room ideas

A rustic look is ideal for a baby’s room, thanks to its ability to pacify and soothe. If you’re lucky enough to have practical wooden floors, make the most of their calming natural quality and give them a honey-coloured varnish for added warmth.

Plenty of cooling, floaty fabrics that will catch the breeze will undoubtedly give the baby something interesting to look at, while soft natural rugs will be a gentle surface when the little one is more mobile.

14. Mens’ rustic bedroom ideas

Inspired by precious marble, the intense wall colour in this bedroom evokes a bold masculine feel, which is then elevated by the leather footstools, decadent headboard, and antique lights.

Strong, eye-catching, and a little bit flashy, this powerful scheme is packed full of natural rustic textiles; the ideal bedroom for a confident male.

15. Rustic bedrooms inspired by flora

Be inspired by raw and rustic desert landscapes and decorate with soft sandy tones, bleached woods and cacti motifs for a pared-back look that’s refreshing.

Opt for contemporary lighting to keep the scheme feeling modern, and layer tactile textures, such as faux fur and cool linens, to ensure the space is inviting.

16. Glam rustic bedroom ideas

Reminiscent of a grand hotel room, elegant wall panelling sets a sophisticated grown-up scene, while rustic textures on the bed and floor bring it back down to earth with a laidback feel.

Coral is a wonderfully fresh colour to team with deep charcoal hues and will lift moody tones with a pinch of spice.

17. Vintage rustic elements
