We are a big fan of bedrooms that combine modern aesthetics with the classic rustic style to create flowing fusion between the two. Shaping a kids’ bedroom that is both refined and rustic is a lot easier than you think and it gives you a room that grows along with the needs and choices of your child.
Rustic does not mean old and worn out and in the case of kids’ bedrooms you sure could do with some color as well to spice up the setting. Bedding and pillows offer an easy way of adding plenty of color to the rustic bedroom without actually altering the overall appeal.
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.
Glossy velvety reds work well in opulent bedrooms with a Hollywood Regency or chic glam style. With Valentine’s Day a month away this will also add a touch of romance to the bedroom just in time!
If you’re looking for one over-the-top statement piece for your bedroom look no further than the opulent Maxfield Dresser. Its mirrored finish bounces light around to brighten up darker rooms and its combination of trunk latches with white trim is a unique take on a classic look.
