A bedroom should look cozy and simple, sophisticated, and elegant, regardless of what style of decorating you choose. For ease of movement, leave a minimum of three feet between the bed and side walls or large pieces of furniture and at least two feet between the bed and low furniture, like tables and dressers. If you have to walk around the bed to get from the closet to the bathroom, think of how you can move the bed.

Typically, the palette for modern rustic décor is a neutral one, heavily dependent on the warm tones of natural wood, along with lighter colors on the walls, bedding, window treatments, and accessories. This stylish ​bedroom by Metropole Architects puts a fresh twist on traditional, rustic decorating with a stunning dark blue wall. It is the perfect backdrop for the brown and blue colors used throughout the room. Another good looking trick worth stealing is the wood feature wall, which is actually wallpaper. ​


Piling on layers of various patterns and textures in a mix of different brown and cream colors is the trick that makes this homey bedroom by Locati Architects one of our favorite examples ever. The reclaimed wood wall anchors the space while print fabrics in contrasting patterns covering the walls, window, headboard, and pillows add both visual interest and depth.
