Combining clean lines and natural materials, modern rustic design works everywhere from urban lofts to suburban homes. And while you can definitely work this style into any room, it’s an especially cozy choice for bedrooms, where modern silhouettes keep your space feeling organized and rustic touches add texture and warmth. Want to design a room you’ll want to curl up in year round? We’re taking you through the essentials you’ll need to create a modern rustic bedroom retreat.
Warm & Rustic Woodland
Our new Woodland Bedroom Collection is what modern rustic dreams are made of. Reclaimed wood gives each piece a unique look complete with nail holes and patches, and hand-finished texture leaves this furniture with an effortlessly rustic surface. The collection looks stylish together or apart. Choose multiple pieces if you’re all about cohesive design or styling from scratch in a new home. If your space is more eclectic, Woodland’s simple silhouettes and modern grey colour play nicely with other pieces of furniture.
The Woodland Bed’s tall headboard makes a strong visual statement; it’s the perfect focal point for your bedroom and backdrop for layering pillows. Trying to create a rustic retreat in a less-than-spacious room? Woodland Nightstands come in two different sizes, 22 and 28 inches wide, so you can choose the best fit for your space. A roomy, six-drawer dresser rounds out the collection, and drawers on each piece feature contrasting black hardware for a touch of modern influence.
Even the most minimal bedrooms need linens. And in a cozy, modern rustic retreat, there’s no such thing as too many textiles. Layered bedding is one of our favourite ways to make your bedroom feel like your own private getaway, and it’s a practical choice in cooler seasons (leave the thermostat, add a bedspread). Start with solid or neutral bedding like the Darcy Duvet Set, then layer on a contrasting bedspread or throw.
Other cozy must-haves for your rustic retreat: accent pillows. Choose a palette of two to three colours, then pick accent pillows that bring more pattern and texture to your room. There’s room for texture under the bed, too. Use an area rug to keep your rustic room feeling warm and lived in. Even if it’s made of synthetic materials, choose natural-looking weaves like the Lance Rug’s soft basket-weave pattern, or Cosette’s casual chevron knit.
In bedrooms with extra space, we love adding an armchair for reading, getting dressed in the morning, or throwing all those accent pillows when it’s actually time for sleep. Upholstered in soft fleece shearling, the Dolly Armchair is one of the coziest pieces in our latest collection. This chair’s gently curving silhouette fits easily in most rooms, but the unique fabric and wood legs come with cabin-getaway inspiration you’ll love waking up to every morning.
