Don’t you wish you could just dive through that window (and screen) and cozy up in this bedroom? Contemporary striped linens match the beige painted walls and the rice pendant brings adds just a touch of intrigue to this small sleeping nook by Leanne Ford Interiors.
Gingham is a farmhouse decorating staple and pairs beautifully with other preppy elements that dress up the more rustic bones of an old farmhouse. In this bedroom by Shazalynn Winfrey, the warm chocolate brown background and green piping complement the red gingham beautifully.
Energizing without being overpowering, this blooming bedroom designed by Sarah Moore features a colorful vintage Sanderson floral wallcovering from the 1950s. Accented by alternating colors of ticking stripe bedding. The rest of the items, from the carpet to the lamp and seat, tie the whole room together.
Economical meets stylish in this family home by Seth and Chat Gilbert. The exposed, rustic materials like wood beams and brick are softened by more delicate pieces, like the frilly bedding, dainty wrought-iron bed frame, and plush sheepskin throw dress it up and make it feel a little more romantic.
Floral wallpaper sets the sweet farmhouse scene in the home of And Studio founder Arianna De Gasperis. A linen headboard with matching bedding, an organic contemporary side table, and a modern sconces bring the bedroom to the 21st-century.
French provincial beds, sun-faded beams, and landscape prints make this bedroom feel both polished and laidback. We love how the beds each hold similar pillows but in opposite colorsways to break up the otherwise perfect symmetry.
A rounded canopy bed without curtains gives this faded farmhouse bedroom by Leanne Ford Interiors a surprisingly assertive character. The contrast works well here.
This laidback bedroom designed by Tom Schereer is further proof that plaid and gingham are a farmhouse mainstay. The pink textiles and sweet window seat make it feel like a peaceful, safe space to rest.
Modern and industrial yet grounded (literally) this bedroom would look stylish anywhere, whether it’s an urban loft or a remote farmhouse.
Colefax & Fowler’s iconic Bowood chintz will never go out of style, and it works particularly well in calming countryside space, as in this bedroom styled by Ben Kendrick. The repetition of the print and sweet, soft green shade echoes the landscape beyond the house and puts anyone needing to rest in a meditative, relaxed mood.
Designed by Leanne Ford Interiors, this studio fuses the best of minimalist Wabi-Sabi and retro-inspired design for a perfectly imperfect farmhouse bedroom. Loose French linen slipcovers and exposed materials dipped in white create a cohesive, lived-in, and classic whole. Plus, we love the layouts.
Every last detail in Teresa and Michael Drapkin’s home is lovingly curated. Even the white porcelain doorknobs popping against the black painted door contribute to the narrative of the space and provide practical value. And in classic farmhouse chic style, everything is unpretentious and has a purpose, like the stool propping up the night light.
The all-over matching pattern trend can seem tricky to nail in a modern setting, but when it works, it really works. Take notes from this bedroom designed by Anna Spiro. The old-school navy and white gingham fabric is bold and cool when paired with geometric modern accents, including the marigold table and lamp base.
Hip Scandinavian minimalism meets historic upstate design at Inness, a new Hudson Valley hotel designed by Post Company. For a similar look, practice restraint with a neutral palette, mix contemporary pieces with antique ones, and embrace texture.
This Wiltshire cottage bedroom designed by Amanda Bannister celebrates the timelessness of farmhouse style. Tucked under the eaves, and covered in a lovely floral wallpaper, you can’t help but relax just by looking at the room.
Designer Kevin Isbell brightened up this formerly dated farmhouse bedroom by painting it completely in white (the floors included!). He also hung artwork all the way up by the rafters since the windows look up almost all the wall space.
Exposed craggly stone is a North East treasure—embrace the fairytale persona of the material with rustic treatments, like limewashed paint. This bedroom in a Vermont house by Cathy Chapman also takes a unique cool-toned approach for a hint of formality.
Exposed beams and whitewashed walls aren’t the only way to embrace the farmhouse aesthetic. In this bedroom designed by Heidi Caillier, pale gray-green walls, woven, and marigold accents, and dark wooden furniture do the trick.
New England coastal charm meets warm farmhouse design with layers of antique pieces, and exposed beams painted white in this guest bedroom designed by Elizabeth Georgantas. Pro tip: Elevate under-the-bed storage with vintage suitcases.
Anything old can be something new, useful, and beautiful with the right outlook and design approach. The handsome leather headboard that anchors this bedroom was a wrestling mat in its past life. And the fresh coat of white paint, refined bronze and black sconces, and fresh bedding make it impossible to know that this space was previously a dilapidated barn.
Built in 1706, this historic family home is filled to the rafters with character. “Every piece has a story,” says designer and homeowner Jennifer Vaughn Miller. The iron-wrought, vintage-inspired bed complements the vaulted ceiling while the full, frilly bed skirt warms everything up.
Fresh Flowers and Dainty Bedding
Antique-looking curtains define the baby blue canopy bed in this room designed by Cathy Kincaid. Fresh cut flowers are a must in a farmhouse bedroom (and any bedroom, for that matter).
A contemporary geometric rug and plenty of warm wood surfaces anchor this bedroom designed by General Assembly. With such beautifully restored bones, the rest is simple: some cozy linens, an old wooden side chair to double as a bedside table, and a pop of color vis-a-vis a throw pillow.
This camouflaged take on pattern matching is so traditional that it almost feels edgy, and is definitely due for a resurgence. It’s the perfect approach for an old farmhouse—just embrace the old quirks and run with them, as Tom Scheerer did boldly here.
Thomas Jayne hung a tapestry behind the bed and decorated it with pattern-filled textiles to bring introduce dimension and personality to the white-painted bedroom. Antiques are another farmhouse mainstay, so instead of a contemporary bench, opt for a trunk at the end of the bed.
A long shabby chic chandelier brings the pitched roof back down to a more cozy human scale, which is crucial in making a bedroom feel cozy. Leanne Ford covered the walls in grout to give it a highly textured, lived-in look.
Neatly pressed bedding complete with playful scallopped pillows, a velvet throw, and a floral headboard make this contemporary farmhouse bedroom by Abney Morton Interiors the perfect balance between approachable and refined.
