12 cozy country bedrooms

Sweet dreams are all but guaranteed when your bedroom is this beautiful!
  • A sunny spot

    What a perfect spot to write a letter, read a book, or get some work done! The desk in this sunny bedroom looks out onto the gardens, and is surrounded by the cheery golden tones of the bedroom, repeated in the wall color, bedding, and curtains. The high ceiling and arches seem even higher and more pronounced thanks to a crown moulding with color below, and white above.

  • Cool country accessories

    A coat of blue paint turned an old, out-of-date dresser into a centerpiece for this bedroom. An old candlestick holder now makes a perfect jewelry holder. Place earrings or rings into the cups where the candles would go, and hang bracelets and necklaces from the arms! A simple collection of plates completes this simple country look.

  • Branching out

    Nearly anything can become a headboard, including a pretty branch or piece of driftwood! The wood theme is carried throughout this calming bedroom with a darker wood floor, white-washed boards hung horizontally on the wall, and a nightstand made from a wooden crate. The bedding and accessories are done in beachy earth tones to bring it all together.

  • Country girl

    What a wonderful bedroom for a tween or teen girl! Adding a gingham loveseat at the end of the bed gives kids a handy spot to sit and chat with guests, read a book, or have a friend sleep over (especially if it folds out into a bed). A baker's rack takes the place of heavy, dark bookshelves, lending an airy feel to the room. Pretty plates and prints adorn the walls, and a chandelier gives the room a much fancier feel than an ordinary light.

  • American kids

    This room was made for sleepovers! Two sets of bunkbeds are suspended from the ceiling rafters with heavy chain, and the mattresses sit right on the open springs. American-themed accessories make the room clean and crisp, with a bit of adventure. Whether used as a bedroom for brothers, an overnight space for friends, or a cousins' room at the grandarents' house, this is a room that lets boys be boys!

  • Airy and elegant

    When you live in the country, curtains aren't always necessary to shield your home's interior from outside view. You have trees for that! This open, airy bedroom has roman shades on one set of windows to prevent the sun from waking anyone up too early, but the windows behind the bed are left with no treatments. A distressed anqitue bed, crystal chandelier, and legged tray nightstands give this room an elegant yet comfortable feel.

  • Holy houndstooth!

    This brightly painted four-poster puts the "bed" in bedroom! Turn a piece of unpainted furniture into an absolute masterpiece by painting it with a bold pattern like this. Simply cut a template out of a piece of cardboard, trace onto the furniture, and paint! Use bright colors like this, black and white, or more muted tones like gray or teal. Note how the rest of the room is kept clean and simple, to avoid sensory overload. A wall of corrugated steel separates the main sleeping area in this attic bedroom from a storage area.

  • The quilt room

    A big, colorful quilt hangs above this white wooden bed, making the perfect headboard and wall hanging in one. The bedding is kept solid and simple, picking up on one of the colors in the quilt. The quilted fun doesn't stop there, though. A quilt star pattern is etched into the door, letting everyone know they are about to enter the quilt room! Don't want to commit to a carving on your door? Use paint or pin-stripe tape to create your own design.

  • Inside out

    Half bedroom, half porch, a sleeping porch may seem old fashioned, but it's still a wonderful way to sleep! When it's hot inside, sleeping on a screened-in porch gives you as much breeze as possible, without the bugs. A ceiling fan helps, too. And on cool fall afternoons, nothing beats napping on the porch under a warm quilt!

  • Neutral is nice

    Not everything in this bedroom is the exact same color, but choosing light-colored neutrals for everything from the walls to the accessories gives this room a very peaceful, tranquil feeling. Tabbed curtains hide the clutter in built-in closets, and a sliding door on a track provides entry into the bathroom, which is done in the same neutral tones. The space above the closets makes a perfect display for old suitcases and baskets, which can store out-of-season clothes or extra linens.

  • Go bold with patterns

    A boldly patterned, vintage-looking wallpaper covers the walls and ceiling of this upstairs nook bedroom. Matching fabric means curtains and pillow shams can carry the pattern one step further. Bedskirts are done in a contrasting pattern, but one that contains the same colors as the main design. Since the pattern on the walls is so bold, it's important that everything else in the room be kept simple.

  • Rise and shine!

    If this room doesn't make you wake up with a smile, nothing will. French country blue and gold come together with a creamy ivory to make this bedroom cheery and sunny, without being too bright. The same fabric is used in the top quilt, curtains, and chair cushions. Wicker furniture painted blue ties in perfectly, and offers a comfy spot to sit near the bed or out on the deck. How wonderful to have French doors in your bedroom, leading out to a deck or balcony!
