Choosing Colors and Bed Linen:

With the muted tones of sand in the interiors of this bedroom and the bedcover, it is all about masculinity. Adding a bull’s horns speak more volume than words. At first glance, it is nothing less than a pure rustic room with every other furniture blending with the color scheme. Stick more with browns, grays and greens.

Adding too much bright color will overshadow the rustic detail while on the other hand, when you opt for richer and deeper colors as mentioned above, they accent the furniture and the color palette. For your bed, you should go for something that is made of log or any other type of hard and heavy wood. Covering the bed with rustic-themed quilts is a smart step in the right direction.

Rustic Lighting Fixtures:

Nature Inspired Furniture:

There are various styles of furniture that are categorized as rustic. There are beds made of unadorned tree branches while others come with white-washed frames and headboards. Also not left out are the white-washed dressers and simply carved chairs that are hand-painted in order to bring out the grains of the wood. It helps in giving a sort of ‘weathered’ look to the rustic bedroom. As for accent textures for the bed, crisp linen, wool and smooth cotton will do all the tricks.

Rustic Art Pieces:

The artwork you choose to hang in your rustic bedroom should be such that reflects the nature of the room. Mostly, the artworks should come in unpainted but well-carved wood frames, although they can be slightly stained to have that rustic look. The choice of your rustic art pieces should mostly be paintings of animals like deer or pieces depicting farms and forest.
