Feature walls

Wood wall panelling is a quick way to get a farmhouse feel into the bedroom – you can go half wall or full wall, paint in a fresh light colour like light grey, beige or off white as these are very versatile when it comes to your overall colour scheme. Exposed brick walls and beams should also be championed, wonderful features that will give an immediate farmhouse feel. If you want to keep the decor clean and crisp then paint the walls pure white and let the rustic furniture in your room be the focal point.

Farmhouse furniture

Introduce reclaimed wood furniture, yes, it will blend with new, more modern, pieces to get the ‘old meets new’ farmhouse look. We love the Worcester king size double bed frame, ideal for a modern farmhouse bedroom furniture – white painted reclaimed wood complemented by beautiful natural-coloured wood – the best of both worlds. A wooden blanket box at the foot of your bed is the place to store spare bedding, duvets and winter woolies, If your room is already bright and airy you may want to consider a medium wood colour, the Winchester wooden double bed is part of the range which includes everything you need to furnish the most dreamy of bedrooms.

Wicker storage

Wicker baskets in a bedroom are a great way to store things – you can get shallow ones that fit under your bed and use small ones to put toiletries in on your wooden dressing table. House plants are great in the bedroom, another excuse to introduce some wicker in the form of a plant holder! And of course, the traditional wicker laundry basket. Our Rattan May Wicker Storage Bench fits in perfectly with most farmhouse furniture, this is also great for extra storage in a child’s bedroom or playroom.

Up the cosiness

Get your room looking inviting and super comfortable by layering your bedding or add a quilted throw – add in some scatter cushions and a rug. Curtains and even window nets are allowed giving you plenty of scope to get the look just right for you. Wall tapestry or wall hangings are another great way to add some texture and warmth into your room. If you have a spindle chair or wooden dining chairs, bring them in from the dining room, add a faux fur throw or cushions and you have an instant modern farmhouse wooden bedside table.

This is the perfect way to give your bedroom the look! Do you have an old mirror with a less than perfect frame? An old chest of drawers or an odd small bedside table? These can be given a new lease of life by upcycling them – often just by sanding down and re-painting. Right on trend – and good for the environment too!
