Give your sleep space a modern rustic look by celebrating the natural architecture of the room and adding stripped-back materials, unfinished woods and global-inspired textiles. Check out these 10 beautiful bedrooms for some inspiration.
Unique Home Stays
1. Fashion some shelves. Use unfinished wood to create rustic shelves. In this paneled bedroom, two small bedside ledges have been fashioned from rough timber. It’s a simple idea, but a very effective way to give your room a homespun feel.
2. Mix materials. Use rustic finishes in a modern way by combining them with other materials. Here, the simple wooden crate looks fantastic beside a beautiful “headboard” made of ceramic tiles. A copper lamp lifts the wood even more and gives the room an industrial edge.

3. Go for pale and interesting. The soft blue hues on this bed look wonderful in front of the bleached wood walls. With the wood kept quite rough and pale, the space has a pared-down feel.
To create the look, mix white paint with water and add a coat to your panels. Wipe it off with a paper towel or rag, and repeat the process until you have the right finish.
4. Hang a chandelier. Add surprising features to your space to give it a quirky feel. The old beams on this ceiling have been teamed with an elaborate chandelier. The intricate design and shiny surfaces contrast beautifully with the weathered wood above.

5. Add charm to luxury. This elegant room has a perfect mix of luxurious comfort and rustic touches. Exposed beams and a wrought iron curtain rail are old-fashioned elements that contrast well with the on-trend tufted headboard and modern bedside lamps.
6. Create a haven. A pared-back modern rustic look is enhanced with the addition of an unvarnished wood bedside table. The simple, pale finish works well with the white bedding and neutral rug in this space. White wall panels and a painted floor provide the perfect backdrop.

7. Give your head a rest. This monochromatic room is warmed up with a wooden headboard. The timber is unfinished, so its various shades and patterns come through to complement other elements in the room.
8. Combine cultures. The exposed ceiling here is set off by the eclectic mix of patterns and colors on the bed. The global-inspired patchwork bedspread brings bright hues into the calm space, and the owners have used old coffee sacks to make a characterful headboard cover. Plants and interesting objects complete the look.
9. Bring out orange tones. The blue wall here helps the orange hues of the rustic wooden bedside stool to stand out. The copper pendant lamp adds similar tones and helps to give the space a modern vibe. The designers have kept the look stripped back, with frameless photos hung on bulldog clips.
10. Pop in an apple crate. This white room looks like quite a contemporary space. However, a reclaimed apple crate gives it a rustic twist. This is a great example of how just one item can change the look of a room. Look for similar crates online or in thrift shops.
