    You don’t have to live on a farm to decorate in farmhouse style; you don’t even have to live in a rural area. You just need to embrace the casual feel, nod to tradition, and underlying heart-of-the-country vibe that typifies this welcoming, warm, and easy decorating style. Here are fifty bedrooms to inspire you as you decorate your own farmhouse retreat.

    Modern farmhouse style celebrates the traditional even while embracing the contemporary. Using found objects, antiques, or old-timey memorabilia as decor is a popular way to decorate the farmhouse bedroom. Here, three vintage straw hats add charm above the headboard.

    If you’re lucky enough to have a fireplace in your bedroom, like the serene farmhouse bedroom from the wonderful decorating blog My Paradissi shown here, you’re already halfway to country farmhouse style. If you don’t, but wish you did, consider installing one of the many faux fireplaces that look almost real, but require no chimney or wood, and produce no flames or ashes.

    Shiplap Walls

    Shiplap walls are a hallmark of farmhouse style. Often white, but sometimes colored in soft hues, like the pale grayish-green shown here, these wood-clad walls add a warm touch that almost feels nostalgic. If you are unable to panel your walls with real wood, check out a "so real-looking you'll have to get up close to tell the difference" shiplap-design wallpaper.

    Repurposing in the Farmhouse Bedroom

    Photo: Thistlewood Farms

    Repurposing, recycling, and “making do” are ways of life on the farm, and that outlook extends to the décor. While old shutters are a great substitute for a traditional headboard, you can take the idea even further, as decorating blog Thistlewood Farms did here. An entire wall of old shutters is an unexpected – and entirely wonderful – way to add whimsy and eye-catching style to a farmhouse bedroom.

    DIY Headboard

    Rustic wood and repurposed items are commonly found in the farmhouse style. For example, why settle for a traditional headboard when you could have a roughhewn and entirely wonderful DIY headboard made from old boards? And who needs a regular footboard when a vintage metal trough makes such a unique substitute? Farmhouse blog Buckets and Burlap show off both ideas in this cozy charmer of a master bedroom.

    Farmhouse Bedrooms and Quilts

    Quilts and the farmhouse decorating theme go together like peanut butter and jelly. While you might be able to find a vintage quilt online, at an antique mall, or in a specialty shop, feel free to purchase a new quilt that merely appears to be old. Layering a quilt over a bedspread, as in the room shown here, is another hallmark of the farmhouse style.

    The farmhouse theme works just as well in a preteen or teen’s bedroom as it does in the master suite. Here, a charming modern farmhouse girl’s bedroom is sweetened with touches of pink, a small chandelier, and floral-decorated straw hats as wall art.

    Buttery yellow is a classic farmhouse hue. Cheery as sunshine, warm and welcoming like a country hug at the end of the day, versatile enough to work with just about any other color, yellow walls set off the overall soft color scheme so prevalent in this casual decorating style.

The wooden bench at the foot of the bed, along with the use of baskets for storage are other hallmarks of farmhouse style.

    Found an old wooden chair at a tag sale, but it's seen better days, or is scraped and chipped? No problem! Just treat it to a fresh coat of paint, then wear at the edges a bit to create a timeworn appearance. Voila, you have a perfect spot to sit and pull on your shoes in the morning, or a substitute for a traditional bedside table.

    Sliding Barn Doors in the Bedroom

    It's not a farm without a barn, and it's not a barn without a sliding barn door. The look has caught on in the interior decorating world over the past few years, and why not? With no need of room to swing, a sliding door takes up less foot space in the room, making it a  great solution for tiny bedrooms. The worn turquoise barn door here is in a bedroom from Carolyn Ferguson Design.

    Sometimes, you just want to add a splash of lively color to your bedroom, even though it's decorated in a style that generally leans towards softer hues. If so, feel free to indulge yourself: after all, the only real law in interior decorating is that you should love your space. Here, a farmhouse bedroom lights up with the addition of a colorful quilt and shams. The rest of the room, however, is subdued, in keeping with the style.

    Farmhouse style isn't one for a lot of pattern, or a large palette full of color. The lovely bedroom here shows off a typical look: classic stripes and a simple trellis are the only patterns, while the small touches of red are the only break in the otherwise neutral color scheme. The overall effect is restful, airy, and fresh.
