How to Choose the Right Rustic Bedding
Don’t be misled into thinking that rustic has to conform to any specific formula. Rustic done right is rustic done your way, in a manner which will bring you a lasting appreciation for the lifestyle. Pick and choose from among the components that appeal to your sense of fun, your personal vision and your need for individuality.
It’s not all about weathered wood, dark hues, hammered iron and shed antlers, although those could constitute the essence of a particular brand of rustic. It can also encompass soothing, pale neutral schemes, some peeling paint finishes and the colors of sun glinting off a field of wheat, or the watery grays and blues of a deserted lakeside cabin.
If you have any doubts about the direction your heart is leading you, think of your last trip to the country or the woods, the seashore or the mountains, and analyze the parts of the experience that thrilled you and the sights that remain in your memory. Then act on those memories. You will most likely find your brand of rustic!

How to Decorate a Rustic Bedroom
There are many directions you can take when creating a rustic bedroom. I believe it’s easiest to start with choosing the rustic bedding set first and use this as the inspiration for your color palette.
Many of lodge bedding collections have bears, pinecones with southwestern geometric prints in warm earth-tones. This style goes great with southwestern or solid area rugs that reflect the color of the bedding.
If you don’t want the full-on rustic style in your bedroom, consider going with solid bedding and add rustic pillows and a cozy cabin throw at the foot of the bed.
Walls can be painted in subtle earth-tone shades, or clad with reclaimed wood or stone. Wood furniture always works well in a rustic bedroom, from log beds to reclaimed rustic headboards. Another option is a leather headboard – which provides a very masculine look to the room.
Décor to consider adding are wicker baskets, barn doors, old shutters, wrought iron, faux fur throws and light fixtures made from driftwood or twigs.
Modern Rustic Bedding
Many of the rustic quilts and comforters available have outdoor icons such as bear, moose, pinecones and deer as well as southwest geometrics in bright and bold colors. For those that prefer a more modern approach to rustic design, it works well to choose a quilt, duvet cover or comforter in a solid color, and add throw pillows and a blanket at the end of the bed that has lodge-style prints.
Modern rustic bedrooms typically incorporate a neutral palette that relies on the use of warm tones, natural wood, and rustic furniture. Create the perfect balance between modern and rustic elements to give the room a unique personality. Incorporate natural textures, rustic bedside tables, repurposed and restored items with polished and modern finishes. Metallics such as weathered brass and iron create interest. Think of adding rustic shelving, wooden crates, copper lamps, and galvanized buckets. Clean modern lines contrast perfectly with distressed wood wall hangings and natural materials.
White bedding also works perfectly in a modern rustic bedroom. Be sure to pile on pillows and throws with plenty of texture to create warmth and a cozy sleeping environment.
Western & Southwestern Bedroom Ideas
A beautiful western bedroom should have a balanced combination of rugged elements such as rustic ranch furniture, southwestern textures and décor, without using too much of a heavy hand. A bedroom should be a relaxing retreat, and less is more when it comes to design. You’ll sleep much better in a comfortable setting that is marked by simplicity.
That being said, items can be added in a subtle manner to achieve the western feel. Western style bedrooms can incorporate wood, stone, leather and metal as well as paintings and western artifacts. Given that western heritage has its roots in the ranching industry, furniture is generally oversized, comfortable and features leather and hides.
A signature piece of artwork can make a dramatic statement in your western or southwestern bedroom. Think about incorporating a large-scale painting wherever possible and pull out some of the colors in surrounding décor to pull the look together.
Be creative. Salvaged barn wood on just one wall can create a gorgeous backdrop for an antique iron bed. Barn doors can be re-purposed in doorways or used as headboards. Reclaimed wood furniture is also perfect for Southwestern bedrooms, as pieces are inherently rustic, primitive and add instant warmth. Salvaged wood beams add depth and character infusing a space with tranquil and natural beauty.
Don’t overlook a well-chosen bed and rustic bedding as your bedroom’s focal point. As with any style of bedroom , it’s important to ensure to add plenty of throw pillows and blankets to provide an ultimately cozy and inviting space.
