Instead of heavy wooden elements and weathered surfaces opt for more modern decor and accessories. Add a reclaimed bedside table or a wooden headboard that makes a big statement in the modern room. The important thing here is to keep the color palette warm and earthy and the bed frame rustic while adding a few modern touches to the room.
While we’re pretty partial to the idea of stealing a wink or two during the day that’s not the only reason that daybeds have a special place in our hearts. These versatile pieces transcend their lazy reputations by doing double duty as both seats and beds and are especially useful in urban settings where space is at a premium.
For those with more rustic tastes Saartje Prum offers up this adorable wooden daybed complete with carved hearts and a pull-out trundle.
Those of us living in small spaces have trouble finding room for even the smallest of things like jewelry. That’s why the Girl on the Go’s DIY vertical jewelry holder which takes advantage of the hidden space behind the Stave mirror makes so much sense.
Why build out to create an extra closet when you can find all of the storage you need underneath the bed? That’s what Cathrine and Hans Edblad did by using two MALM dressers to elevate their son’s bed adding lots of space for clothes and toys without giving up any square footage in the room.
While the temptation right now might be to opt for a darker shade like charcoal gray because of the snow-filled landscape outside you might find it a touch unappealing in the summer months.
The cabin-inspired rustic kids’ bedroom is also a great idea for all those sleepovers as bunk beds are often the norm in such rooms. Families with more than a couple of kids can also turn towards this style which allows you to create a wall of bunk beds complete with ladders and built-in steps! With some additional space and the right storage units this bedroom will also easily double as the perfect playroom.
Think of rustic style and the first thing that comes to mind are large logs and rough wooden surfaces that define the walls and the ceiling. While such a look is not natural for most modern homes you can give your kids’ bedroom a special makeover by adding a few beams to define the ceiling and add warmth to the room.
