We all have that one room in the house that doubles as our sanctuary — a room that provides safe respite where we can break away from the outside world, even if it's only for a few quiet moments. The most popular option? The bedroom. The outside world slowly fades into the background the moment your head hits the pillow, feet off the ground as your body melts into the comfort of soft linens.
The idea of creating an inviting sanctuary complete with vintage sentiments and contemporary comforts appeals to the dreamer in us all. Farmhouse bedrooms range from true rustic grit to vibrant and contemporary and everything in between. Whether you prefer shabby chic or modern touches, these farmhouse bedrooms will have you wishing it was bedtime.
Simplicity reigns in this chic and rustic bedroom. Wood floors, sliding barn bathroom doors and light-filled windows brighten the nude and buff tones. The bathroom is complete with an extra-large bathtub and his-and-her sinks. The king-size bed is perfect for resting and crossword puzzles. The room’s minimal decor — a corner chair, ceiling fan and nightstand — enhances the "away from the city" vibe.
This French-industrial-inspired bedroom décor mixes touches of modern charm with classic comfort. The furniture is reminiscent of forgotten treasures discovered at a yard sale combined with DIY projects. Natural colors and wooden accents create an air of earthiness and relaxation that seem to melt away any anxieties. Not quite ready to doze off? Enjoy your novel while resting comfortably in the side chair as you prop your feet up on wooden foot benches that double as storage spaces for quilts or light clothing.
Tranquility in an industrial setting: A wooden coconut husk stained wall replaces the traditional headboard. The bed rests on a wooden frame while recycled crates take the place of a footboard. The crates can also double as a small table and chair for tea time or extra storage space for books. A large window provides natural light while twin lanterns hang gingerly on each side of the bed. An old school chimney pipe is perched in the corner of the room providing warmth during the winter months.
A high ceiling, large windows and warm grays abound in this deluxe master bedroom. The suite is grand enough to house a king-size bed, two lounging chairs and decorative touches like the carnival horse. Side tables sit in place of the standard nightstand, and a lantern-style chandelier hangs in the center of the room. Black, cream and natural colors boost the gray and pearl color scheme, while blending rustic and modern farmhouse styles together quite well. Enjoy a farm-fresh brunch on the balcony while listening to music from the room’s sound system.
Is there room at the inn? This quaint, countryside bedroom is unpretentious and cozy. The room’s minimal furniture and décor is compiled from junkyards, thrift stores and garage sales (not shown: two dressers). The angle of the bed breaks away from traditional positioning, and the decorative door behind the headboard was crafted from a dilapidated covered porch.
Shabby chic and bright earth tones are the name of the game in this rustic bedroom. The furniture and door have been hand-painted. The bed is no muss, no fuss. Neat and clean with only a couple decorative pillows. A standalone antique cupboard allows you to store your clothes. The soft spring color palette and quirky décor add just the right amount of old-school charm. The room also boasts "three light-filled windows."
Classic French-inspired farmhouse bedrooms are always a good choice. The rain-washed planked wall is pleasing to the eye and accents the wooden furniture. Simple French country touches include a basket over the headboard and decorative table lamp. A ceiling fan allows for comfortable air circulation during the summer months.
This rustic, loft-style attic bedroom invokes thoughts of a bed-and-breakfast off the beaten path. It provides old-world charm and serenity. There are two separate entry and exit options. The room is completely void of technological accents, making it the perfect place to nap in peace after a pleasant horseback trail ride.
A simple wire frame supports the full-size bed with a curtain that can be used to shield outside light. A few other knickknacks, a chair and presumably a dresser add to the cabin-like feel of the room. The texture of the off-white walls lends itself as artwork, with no real need to add anything else to its beauty.
Who says natural tones get to have all of the fun? This pink and cream master bedroom is farmhouse sophistication and romance at its finest. A curtain hangs over a queen-sized bed fitted with soft linens coordinated to match the room’s sweet and delicate atmosphere. Soft gold accents can be found on the chandelier, the vintage nightstands and a Victorianesque vanity complete with stool. Perch yourself by the window and get lost in the sights and sounds of the countryside.
Where to start with this delightful room? The oatmeal and cream decor, the twinkly lights and mini birdhouses in branches against the chestnut panel wall provide a charming, fairy-like atmosphere. The bed is modest and unassuming — its peeling frame only adding to the earthiness of the room. Sit in the accompanying chair as you write in your journal or quietly ponder life over a fresh mug of chamomile tea.
