Create A Country Cottage Bedroom Decor
Keep It Simple
It can be quite easy to go over the top when trying to recreate a country cottage style in your bedroom. That’s because there is all manner of different antiques and furnishings that you can bring into the room. However, if you use too many, you will find that the room can feel a bit too busy and overwhelming. It might also leave you a bit tight for space! So, it’s a good idea to pick out one or two top-quality antiques that will transform your room just as well as a lot of smaller antiques would.
Consider The Fabrics On Your Bed
As well as thinking of the room’s overall color scheme, you should also carefully think about the types of fabrics that you have on your bed. For instance, some synthetic duvet covers and blankets won’t work well in a rustic room. If you are thinking about upgrading your mattress, you should contact the store to see what kinds of duvet and pillow covers they can offer you. Ideally, you want ones that are made from natural fabrics, such as cotton. It’s also worth getting a fake fur blanket or throw as that will really highlight your bedroom’s rural style.
Bring In Natural Materials
It’s not just natural fibers that should be used on your bed – there are lots of other natural materials that you need to consider bringing into your country cottage style room. For instance, lots of interior decorators love to use woods in their country-inspired rooms. You might want to use wooden paneling on the walls instead of wallpaper or paint. It’s also a good idea to go for wooden furnishings as these can add an extra antique feel to the room.
Add A Focal Point
To give your country cottage bedroom an extra special feel, you should add a focal point. This could be an elaborate antique or a grand headboard at the head of your bed. You might even want to add a canopy onto the bed as this gives you another way to add some natural fabrics to the bed. This will finish off the room’s decor nicely and gives the room an overall focus.
