Rustic bedroom decorating ideas
In this article, I’ll be going into detail about rustic bedroom decorating ideas that are practical and affordable, plus overall look that is required for this style. A rustic bedroom is all about natural finishes, desert and sun-washed colors, muted tones and the hint of the southwest vibe!
Rustic décor for the bedroom can be more feminine or more masculine; the overall look will be down to persona preferences or finding common ground. You can alter the look of the bedroom by adding more feminine looking bedding or masculine looking lighting fixtures. Here are some guidelines that I have complied for you.
A rustic bedroom will look masculine due to the heavy wood furniture and timbers on the ceiling. Muted sand, browns, greys and green colors complete the color scheme; this overall style would feel at home in lumberjack shack. For a more feminine rustic bedroom, simply add lighter shades for the walls and bedding, think more of creams, beiges and sandy colors.
The type of lighting installed in a bedroom can have an effect on your mood, so carefully choosing the right fixture is important. A fluorescent light would not be suitable for a bedroom, but a soft yellow toned lightbulb would be. A perfect example would an Edison table lamp with a retro yellow lightbulb. Other rustic light fixtures for the bedroom that will good include, wood and metal chandeliers, chandeliers designed like Deer antlers and metal cage wall lamps.
The type of bedding required can feature plaids, geometrics, animals, plain or a combination of these in the design for the duvet cover and pillowcases. Plain colored sheets will complement the design of the duvet cover and pillowcases. Shades of light grey, olive greens, creams, rusty reds, browns and sandy colors will mix in with rustic feel of the bedroom.
The bed should be made from logs or a hard heavy wood, if you need to have the bed and furniture match, then a rustic bedroom set will be a good idea. Rustic bedroom furniture should have a distressed look; think of antique vintage furniture that looks worn in whitewashed with a weathered feel to it.

Some accessories sprinkled around will give the bedroom extra character and charm. Items such as unpainted carved wood frames with black and white photos or maybe sepia tinged. The art works ideally need to be of animals like Deer or depicting farms or log cabins. Other ideas can include some old vintage worn in cowboy boots with a few twigs or small branches in them. An old tree trunk can be used for a bedside table or a seat for the dresser.
