Tips for creating a Rustic Style Bedroom

At Natural Bed Company our enthusiasm for the beauty and subtly of solid timber inspires our taste for rustic style interior design. Solid wood is a key feature for this style, be inspired by nature and select from this colour palette.  Soft greens, warm greys and every shade of brown, from pale beige to bitter espresso, can be incorporated. Neutral tones in paint and fabrics, beautifully complement the natural timber colour range.

Take a look at our Sonora bed (shown above) – a low bed, perfect for a loft space – with a large sweep of timber for the headboard. If you want to incorporate a neutral colour on the headboard – take a look at the Koo bed. It is shown below with a Farrow&Ball Downpipe headboard panel, with a solid oak bedframe. It is available in oak or walnut, with a headboard panel in the colour of your choice.

A rustic look has a relaxed, comfortable look – nothing is too precious, in fact the more used it looks the more authentic the feel! This look has an honest and unstudied aspect, and evokes a simpler time. A combination of solid wood furniture, natural bedding and some vintage finds form the basis for this look.

Walls are painted plaster in soft tones, or clad in timber or natural stone tile. Again the floor should be timber boards or large stone tiles, with loosely woven wool or leather rugs. A cowhide or sheepskin rug adds a soft, cosiness – perfect for autumn/winter. Take a look at our Rustic Style Pinterest Board for more inspirational images. Here you’ll be able to see how a wooden bed, simple linen bedding and a wool throw can result in a sophisticated, romantic rustic style.
