There’s nothing better in winter than being snuggled up in the warmth, while it’s crisp and frosty outside. The epitome of cosiness is a rustic cottage retreat. We’ve selected the best tips for you to create some real country charm in your bedroom, no matter what your location.
It’s all about natural materials
Natural materials, especially wood, really bring rustic charm to life. Wood that appears weathered and repurposed will instantly give your bedroom a rustic, country feel. Our Grant bed frame features a dark grand panelled headboard and is made from stained white ash. Finished with contrasting copper legs, the Grant makes a traditional favourite a quirky addition to your home.
For a lighter look, the Sabina bed frame offers a sophisticated twist by teaming natural wood with upholstered fabric. The beautiful cream inserts compliment the light white washed oak to give your bedroom effortless country charm.
Use your walls to create a rustic look
Exposed brick walls and wooden cladding are rustic bedroom essentials. Our Jakarta bed frame, upholstered in brown faux leather, compliments repurposed wooden cladding perfectly. While not all of us are lucky enough to have a wooden feature wall in our house, you can fake it with wallpapers that recreate wood panelling or even exposed brick.
Keep it soft and cosy
While it might seem quite harsh to decorate your room with exposed brick, and repurposed wood, creating a rustic bedroom is the perfect opportunity to use multiple textures. Team neutral bed linen with knitted throws and rugs to add that cosy feel to your room. The soft textures contrasting with the harsh brick or wood will make your room feel rustic and cosy. Perfect for snuggling up in, in these winter months.
Use colour to make a statement
Traditionally, creating a rustic look would use a neutral palette relying on the warm tones of natural wood, combined with light bedding and wall colours. However, if you’re feeling adventurous team deep navy-blue walls with wooden panelling. The room set of our Brussels black bonded leather bed frame shows this beautifully. The contrasting natural looking materials of bonded leather and deep navy-blue panelling is the perfect nod to modern rustic charm.
