How To Give Your Bedroom A Beautiful, Rustic Charm

April 24th, 2012 Bed and Bath

Does your home have a somewhat small bedroom? If you're looking for a unique way to renovate it, look to the elegant beauty of country cottages. These spaces tend to do a lot with a little bit of space, all while retaining a certain charm that can't be denied. There's plenty of inspiration to be found in these spaces, to be sure! If you don't know where to begin, here are some simple tricks you can use to turn your bedroom into a cozy cottage-like place in no time at all.

Remember, it's all about simplicity. You want your bedroom to be relaxed and informal - doing so is actually a fairly simple prospect. If you're working with a smaller space, it's important to make the most out of what's available to you. One of the best ways to do this is to take advantage of storage space under your bed. Place clothes that are out of season here and you'll have more room for your other stuff. The more open space you have, the easier your decoration job will be.

As far as the actual aesthetics of the bedroom go, you will want to stick with simple wood in neutral tones. Work with light, tan hues or whites with minimal sheen. The goal is to remain modest while still introducing a bit of charm into the space. However, you can use your walls as an opportunity to bring a bit of vitality into your kitchen - a confident red or deep blue can do wonders for its looks. Add fresh, seasonal flowers on your nightstand and you should be all set!
