Modern Farmhouse Makeover

Create a modern farmhouse look by layering salvaged items and industrial elements over a whitewashed palette. This farmhouse master bedroom pulls it off by pairing a sliding barn door and weathered bench with sleeker furnishings, like a midcentury modern pendant light. A few pops of orange and blue wake up the room.

Timeworn Elegance

An eye-catching wicker pendant lights up this relaxing farmhouse bedroom, but the real focal point is the DIY headboard. It's reclaimed fence posts contrast delicate gold and floral details in the room. Find more ways to incorporate reclaimed wood and consider the effect of pairing it with splashes of robin's-egg blue.

Classic Country Style

Avoid matchy-matchy bedroom sets when embracing farmhouse decor. The best rooms look as though they’ve been decorated over time, like this one featuring a collection of distressed wood dressers, a metal bed frame, and antique drapery holdbacks. Burlap pillow shams add country flair.

Industrial Intrigue

If you’ve ever seen Fixer Upper, you know shiplap walls are a farmhouse staple for the crisp, clean lines they add to a space. (And, seriously, you can install one in a day!) Combine a shiplap wall with cool concrete floors, quilted bedding, and a hide rug for a ranch-style sanctuary.

Americana Accents

Looking for country bedroom ideas for kids? You can’t go wrong with red, white, and blue. The patriotic hues throughout this bedroom's bedding and rugs pay homage to country living and brighten all the white. A Dutch door is an iconic farmhouse element.

Cabin Escape

Between forest-theme wallpaper and a cedar-paneled ceiling, it’s no wonder this farmhouse bedroom reminds us of a country cabin. It branches out from basic light fixtures with an edgy chandelier and green glass pendants. A fur pillow and upholstered bed frame soften the look.

Coastal Influence

Drawing on the colors of the beach, this bright and airy bedroom evokes a beachside cottage. The spots of red in the light quilt and the pale blue bed are muted contrasts to beige built-ins. Reclaimed wood ceiling beams, shell-inspired decor, and a neutral seagrass rug continue the coastal theme.

Scandinavian Stunner

Not a fan of country kitsch? Do as the Danish and find your hygge with a cozy yet minimalistic farmhouse bedroom. Geometric fabrics play nice alongside white shiplap walls; thrifted accents (like the pitcher-turned-vase) offer timeless country appeal. Matte black sconces are a modern finishing touch.

Farmhouse Textures

Pair a tufted velvet headboard with mix-and-match burlap throw pillows for an interesting combination of glamour and country. The lustrous fabric contrasts paneled walls and linen bedding. Salvage an old wooden stool to double as a bedside table topped with accessories for personality.

Layered Neutrals

The canvas for creating a French Provincial-style bedroom starts with cool grays, eggshell whites, and warm hardwood floors. Against that backdrop, rustic farmhouse bedroom furniture, including a distressed bench, stand out. Found items and keepsakes like the vintage dress and sepia-tone photographs provide old-world charm.

Better in Blue

As much as we love the signature white walls associated with farmhouses, we welcome color. This bedroom opts for a navy blue color scheme, weaving it throughout in a vintage rug and framed wall art. An upholstered bed in soft gray and the crisp white ceiling and trim brighten the farmhouse bedroom.

Boho Farmhouse Mix

Add a touch of romance to a farmhouse bedroom with splashes of pink and purple. Rosy colors repeat in the area rug, bedding, table lamp, and pillows. A hanging rattan chair provides the perfect place to wind down with a favorite read. The bohemian farmhouse bedroom exemplifies country appeal with a Jenny Lind bed and playful horse accents.

What’s Old Is New

Country decorating is about odes to the past. In this bedroom, recycled quilting fabric serves as drapery ties, and an old metal stool topped with a tray creates a makeshift side table. Piles of white linens soften an ornate vintage wood bed frame.

Gray Farmhouse Color Scheme

Creamy whites and cloudy grays tend to dominate the modern farmhouse palette. This bedroom combines the best of both and looks to plaid throws and gingham pillows for a little pattern play. A metal basket is repurposed as a clever book holder.

Southwestern Style

This farmhouse bedroom goes country ranch with the help of a mounted deer sculpture and patterned bedding fit for a cowboy. A wicker chair topped with a soft striped pillow tempers the bold black bedding. Plank flooring serves as a classic farmhouse element.

AMERICANA ACCENTS -- The colors and patterns are nice, the storage is nicely done, however . . . #1 I would not put children in a bedroom with a door that leads to an outdoor balcony. #2. They could easily bang their heads on that low ceiling over the beds.
