The Transitional + Rustic Bedroom

It seems that recently in today’s design world, homeowners are succumbing to their wild sides with glorious rustic room touches. Using reclaimed barn wood or installing rustic ceiling beams no longer just applies to your basic log cabin look. The overall outcome is a crafted blend of transitional and rustic design styles which equates to chic and cozy greatness ideal for the bedroom (refresh yourself if you’re curious: Transitional Design, Rustic Design).

Want to bring this look to your Bedroom? Here are some critical tips:

  • Architectural Details: Incorporating the rustic half means a large scale rustic focal point, which usually means…wood (the more salvaged the better). Create a reclaimed wooden wall in your bedroom (I am obsessed with chevron wooden walls) or install rough-hewn ceiling beams. If those suggestions seem intimidating, hang live-edge floating wood shelves or DIY a reclaimed wood headboard. If you want to be hardcore, incorporate stone. 
  • The Cozy Factor: We are going for a warm and toasty bedroom feel. Choose area rugs of soft shag, add a faux fur throw for texture and you cannot have enough blankets (stack them in a woven basket for a nice touch). Your bed should also resemble plushy heaven. Ideally (but perhaps unlikely) you have a fireplace, if not display stacked logs
  • Transitional Decor: Now for the transitional part. Add chic decorative accents especially if inspired by nature (I gravitate towards gold metallics), consider a warm, neutral wall palette, curtain sheers, add some personal touches and hang a statement light fixture.
