Whether it’s for your master bedroom at home or the bedrooms in your cabin out at the lake, rustic bedding makes a perfect addition to your humble abode. The informal, woodsy style has become more and more popular lately. Here are some tips for making your rustic bedroom into the outdoorsy haven you want it to be.
What’s your favorite kind of hunting? Are you a fishing family, or do you prefer deer? Is it big game hunting that gets your pulse pounding? Choose a rustic bedding pattern that reflects that passion.
What’s popular in your area? If you’re putting the rustic bedding out at the lake, a fishing pattern might suit. If a lot of deer hunting goes on in your area, then a deer pattern would fit in perfectly. If you live in a mountainous region, then let mountains make an appearance in your bedding.
Of course, if you can’t choose (or don’t want to!), get a few different rustic bedding sets. With multiple bedding sets, you can easily change the look of your room without having to do a complete redecoration.
Whether you change it out by week or by seasons, it’ll keep your rustic bedroom looking fresh without having to spend a lot of time and money on a full redecoration.
Bring your rustic decor to the floors with area rugs, especially if you have hardwood floors. Not only do they tie into your rustic bedroom, but they’ll be kind to bare feet on cold winter mornings. You can either go with a rug that has a matching print to your rustic bedding, or perhaps you could find a fur rug in a complementary color.
When it comes to rustic accessories, just about anything natural or handmade will fit in with your rustic bedroom. Antlers, turkey calls, carved wood, ironwork, and mounted fish are just some of the things you can put out.
They don’t have to match exactly (that’s part of the charm of a rustic bedroom!), but you should tie your accessories in to the rustic bedding you choose.
A word of caution: don’t put out every single knickknack you own in your rustic bedroom, especially if you own a lot. A bedroom that is filled with clutter will feel smaller, and it won’t help with the relaxing, informal feel that you want from rustic decor.
