Farmhouse-style decor is a laid back, relaxed design scheme that incorporates rustic elements without falling back on too many retro design tropes. Some of the most beautiful farmhouse-style rooms mix old and modern pieces to create a soothing, comforting space.
Here are 21 farmhouse bedroom ideas to transform your outdated sleeping area into an escape that’s worthy of a magazine spread.
When I think of a rustic farmhouse bedroom, I immediately think of shiplap. I know these days it’s an overused design trend, but I genuinely think it looks great when done sparingly.
Here, the shiplap walls provide a rustic design element among a room that’s relatively plain and modern. A restrained touch results in a versatile space with a farmhouse flair.
I have a shiplap ceiling in my kitchen, and it adds a ton of interest and texture to a room without overwhelming it. In this farmhouse bedroom, the impressive high ceilings are the perfect spot to slap some shiplap.
One of the most common furniture pieces for a farmhouse-style bedroom is a metal bed. In this compact bedroom, the dramatic wrought iron bed serves as a focal point and is surrounded by small touches that bring everything together. It’s all very simple, but this room clearly says “farmhouse.”

Blue And White Color Scheme
Quite possibly the best color pairing for a farmhouse-style anything. Delicate powder blue and white are the perfect duo for a rustic bedroom. Here, most of the room is painted white, and the bed adornments all include a subtle pop of blue. It’s a calming color palette that’s bound to lull you to sleep every night.
Wooden Furniture Accents
White furniture is often featured in farmhouse-style rooms, but wood is a suitable alternative with plenty of potential. Here, the light wood nightstand adds color and textural contrast to the otherwise plain color scheme.
It also adds a natural element to the room in question. If light-colored wood isn’t quite your jam, dark stains look just as great — and add a touch of modern feel — in a farmhouse-style room.
The high ceilings in this room are the perfect host for intricate wooden beams. They’re rustic, charming, and add a wallop of visual interest to an otherwise subdued design scheme.
Of course, you’ll need a generous amount of ceiling space to pull this off in a room, but that’s not to say you can’t add wooden elements up above if all your ceilings are at a regular height.
White bedroom linens are a staple of the farmhouse look. If that seems boring to you, though, all you need to do is toss on a throw for a pop of color.
A farmhouse bedroom doesn’t have to involve a master suite. Check out this cute little daybed area with rustic wooden beams. The comfy-cozy reading and sleeping area is an ideal pairing of shabby and chic.
