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.
Find the right balance by choosing a shade and a hue that you love regardless of the scenery outside! Gray can be used either to shape the in the room or in a more extensive fashion for all the walls and the ceiling.
Feeling like your bedroom could use a pick-me-up?

For those with more rustic tastes Saartje Prum offers up this adorable wooden daybed complete with carved hearts and a pull-out trundle.
All you need are a few gorgeous throw pillows in bright red or cozy bedding in elegant scarlet along with a plush rug or a cool vase on the bedside table in a matching hue. As a rule the more neutral the backdrop the more visual impact your red accents will make.
Nora of Oh Yes really outdid herself with a hacked DIY platform bed that effectively creates an entirely new level in her room while also adding storage space below. We especially love how the drawers pull out of the sides of the steps — ingenious!
Handsome and sleek by day and comfortable and restful by night the Eileen Grey chaise is the best of both worlds. The no-frills stainless steel frame is airy enough to work in a small space and the repositionable cushion serves as both an armrest and a pillow.
Hat tip to House of Turquoise for featuring this contemporary and sophisticated blend of colors and patterns. Spotted on a tour of a Utah home designed by Lindy Allen of Four Chairs Furniture the charming space seems like a cozy place to curl up with a book during the day and a dreamy spot to lay your head at night.
