Farmhouse Bedroom Decorating Ideas
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.Continue to 2 of 50 below.

Old and New Mix in the Farmhouse Bedroom

Fireplace in the Bedroom
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.Continue to 4 of 50 below.

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.Continue to 5 of 50 below.

Repurposing in the Farmhouse Bedroom
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.Continue to 6 of 50 below.

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.Continue to 7 of 50 below.

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.Continue to 8 of 50 below.
