Sometimes a modern bedroom decor isn’t enough. To get that super comfortable vibe sometimes you have to go back to the basics. While most kids’ bedrooms seem to embrace the clean, contemporary look, try a fun, comfy twist this winter by giving the modern rustic style a shot. It is also a perfect way to replicate the fun memories of your holiday trip to the woodsy winter cabin, and it creates a dreamy, natural escape for your child.
Think of rustic style, and the first thing that comes to mind are large logs and rough wooden surfaces that define the walls and the ceiling. While such a look is not natural for most modern homes, you can give your kids’ bedroom a special makeover by adding a few beams to define the ceiling and add warmth to the room. One of the best ways to go about this is by turning the attic into a cool kids’ bedroom, as the sloped ceiling adds to the rustic style. Apart from ushering in the winter cabin look that you are after, wood also adds plenty of textural contrast to the space and gives the bedroom a soothing yet fantastic ambience.
The cabin-inspired rustic kids’ bedroom is also a great idea for all those sleepovers, as bunk beds are often the norm in such rooms. Families with more than a couple of kids can also turn towards this style, which allows you to create a wall of bunk beds, complete with ladders and built-in steps! With some additional space and the right storage units, this bedroom will also easily double as the perfect playroom.
We are a big fan of bedrooms that combine modern aesthetics with the classic rustic style to create a flowing fusion between the two. Shaping a kids’ bedroom that is both refined and rustic is a lot easier than you think, and it gives you a room that grows along with the needs and choices of your child. Instead of heavy wooden elements and weathered surfaces, opt for more modern decor and accessories. Add a reclaimed bedside table or a wooden headboard that makes a big statement in the modern room. The important thing here is to keep the colour palette warm and earthy and the bed frame rustic while adding a few modern touches to the room.
Rustic does not mean old and worn out, and in the case of kids’ bedrooms, you sure could do with some colour as well to spice up the setting. Bedding and pillows offer an easy way of adding plenty of colour to the rustic bedroom without actually altering the overall appeal. Also think of creative ways in which you can give the room a fun little twist with unique bunk bed designs, play nooks and ladders that steal the show! Add a splash of pink and a plush rug in white to give the girls’ bedroom a touch of femininity, while a minimal metallic bed frame in the boys’ bedroom gives it a cool industrial vibe. It’s all about thinking ‘out of the box’!
