All in the details…

Source: Better Homes and Gardens

I’m not usually drawn to rustic spaces, but this one has me second guessing that tendency. I think it has something to do with the balance of rustic pieces with modern prints. I can’t deny that this bedroom has me wishing that we were on vacation right now, staying at a sweet little bed and breakfast in the country with rooms just like this one. Let’s talk details…


Again with the mix of rustic and modern…While the nightstand and end table at the foot of the bed (which looks vaguely familiar to me…) are both pretty traditional in shape, the headboard and table lamps are more sleek. Using smooth drum shades also brings this space into the contemporary age. I think we could all easily recreate this eclectic look at home by mixing silhouettes in our furniture and large scale accessories.


No matter how much modern this room can throw at us though, the overall mood will always be rustic. You can’t change, nor would you WANT to change, the architecture of the space itself. From the angled refurbished attic ceiling, to the wainscoting and dainty vintage sconces, this room lives and breathes rustic cottage chic. If you want the same look, scour antique and salvage stores for vintage light fixtures and hang your own beadboard paneling on the walls.


There is a TON of pattern in this room. Ever since starting this series and getting into the details of my favorite rooms, I’ve come to learn that a mix of pattern is really the key to bringing it all together. Here, we’ve got traditional toile mixed with blown out modern florals and even a small geometric pattern in the sheets and pillow shams. Just lovely…And a great way to bring in color.
