Style It Retro With an Antique Cabinet - French Country Bedroom

The use of antiques adds another layer of personality and style to a room that has been decorated correctly. Don’t go way over the top yet. Create a room that speaks to today through mixing contemporary as well as vintage pieces. Giving an antique new life, or presenting it in a new and interesting way, is thrilling. And in contemporary spaces, they work incredibly well – especially when paired with modern furniture.

Spruce Up Your Attic Bedroom

Spruce Up Your Attic Bedroom - French Country Bedroom

Because of its unique architectural lines, there is a certain ethereal feel to attics. It’s just divine how the light seeps into the room — we would never want to leave that little nest. If you decide to turn yours into a bedroom, take on that ambiance with soft linens and layers of cushions and throws.

Get All Snug in a Comfortable Bed End Bench

Get All Snug in a Comfortable Bed End Bench - French Country Bedroom

Instead of using it as a piece of afterthought décor, use the bench to tie in the colors of the throw pillows, art, and nightstands to accomplish a unified vignette in the room. Take note of this bedroom’s inviting color scheme. Let the pieces be your color bursts, and keep balance neutral for the rest of the palette.

Freshen Up With Blue Theme

Freshen Up With Blue Theme - French Country Bedroom

When it comes to blue rooms, maybe there’s no space better suited than the bedroom—blue channels peacefulness, tranquility, and an open space reminiscent of the sky and the sea. So whether you’re after the palest, whisper-soft blue shade, or something authentic, this classic French country inspired bedroom can be your ultimate source for remodeling inspiration.

Use a Canopy Bed for a Palace-like Feel

Use a Canopy Bed for a Palace-like Feel - French Country Bedroom

You can always fall back on a canopy bed to turn an ordinary room into a magnificent sanctuary. Canopy beds add romance and majesty to any bedroom. In medieval Europe, they have been draped into layers of fabric to give nobles privacy and warmth — a move that is still popular to the present, if only for added drama. Perhaps most surprisingly, a canopy bed can be customizable, adding coziness to a large room or height to a small one.

Fall Into Colorful Pillows

Fall Into Colorful Pillows - French Country Bedroom

Pillows are still a great styling instrument for beds, but make sure they aren’t folded too smoothly along the bedside. Pillows should look more casual now, adorned casually across the corner of the bed. On top of that, never forget a decorative pillow cover. A pillow sham provides additional contrast to smaller square or round velvet cushions and looks great atop a regular pillow.

Set Up Your Own Cozy Seating Area

Set Up Your Own Cozy Seating Area - French Country Bedroom

Mix things together to create a more social moment that combines comfort and style. In favor of a few comfy chairs, you can forgo the traditional end-of-the-bed bench. Not only do separate chairs make sleeping and simply relaxing more flexible and mobile, but they also break the room into diverse living areas.

Delight in the Soothing Appeal of Dark Wood Floor

Delight in the Soothing Appeal of Dark Wood Floor - French Country Bedroom

Although not as soft as a carpet, dark wood flooring is still a warm and welcoming feature when used as a bedroom floor surface. Its stunning look, sturdiness, and the ability to stand the passing of time for both aesthetic and durability make it a wonderful substance for long term flooring.

Add a Fireplace

Add a Fireplace - French Country Bedroom

A fireplace in a bedroom has something delightfully indulgent: lying in bed and watching the pleasant spark of flames can’t help but create a relaxed and snug sleeping space. A fireplace can still be a lovely element in your bedroom even if the chimney is blocked off and you can’t have a real fire in it.

Freshen Up With Floral Patterns

Freshen Up With Floral Patterns - French Country Bedroom

The floral pattern needn’t feel out of reach. Unusual color palettes and large-scale prints give a new twist on a classic style. Despite several traditional elements, the color scheme of this bedroom manages to feel unconventional. Experiment with complementary colors, and find inspiration in your choice of floral patterns.

Team Up With Gray

Gray is nothing but transformative when it comes to bedrooms. There is a right shade of gray for every thinkable décor style, from palest pearl to deep charcoal, whether it’s modern, rustic, classic, or coastal. Take a look at this stunning bedroom to prove you can never go wrong with gray.

Inject Greenery

Inject Greenery - French Country Bedroom

Plants are wonderful living ornaments. They can fill a corner, fill a room with life, bring color into a space, and create attention in a vignette. Use plants to add texture on nightstands, or hang them in corners to add aesthetic value and draw your eyes up.

Add Leaner Mirror

Add Leaner Mirror - French Country Bedroom

Great in scale, leaner mirrors can add a serious wow factor to a space — not to mention resolving a few dilemmas of design along the way. Whether resting as designed on the floor or hanging on the wall, this eye-catching piece harnesses the power of light to transform your space.

Bring In Scenic Outdoor View

Bring In Scenic Outdoor View - French Country Bedroom

Windows are so much more than just essential additions to the exterior of your building since they can transform the appearance, feel, and experience of living in the building itself directly. Big windows help to bridge the gap between indoor and outdoor spaces by granting you the most access to fresh air, therapeutic sunlight, and taking full advantage of all the striking views at your doorstep.

Add Splash of Pink

Not everyone expects the level of passionate drama shown in the colorful pink bedroom showcased here, but look at it, it is surely fun! It seems like this avant-garde and glamorous bedroom could belong to a princess or a movie star.

Adorn the Space With a Standing Clock

Standing clocks fill those awkward spaces where nothing else will work. For example, the corners of your bedroom are an ideal nest for a clock.

Opt for a Study or Work Desk

Opt for a Study or Work Desk - French Country Bedroom

Most of us would probably opt for a separate office over an office-bedroom combo. But when that is not possible, the next best thing can be to create a personal workspace in a bedroom. Having an outward-facing desk is necessary for it to be as conducive to productivity as possible. A wise decision is to face your desk toward a wall or window. You’ll be less distracted by pleasant nap thoughts when you’re trying to work by having your back to the bed.

Incorporate Stylish White & Blue

Incorporate Stylish White & Blue - French Country Bedroom

You don’t have to paint your walls blue to make your bedroom’s color the focal point. This beautiful blue sky palette enlivens the all-white space.

Add Two Poster Bed

Add Two Poster Bed - French Country Bedroom

A two-poster bed is one of many homeowners’ favorite bedroom furnishings. It’s a statement piece, yet versatile enough to fit together with many different styles of décor. They are elegant and glamorous, the perfect key parts to a beautiful space. Poster beds are excellent choices if you’re thinking of adding a bit more aesthetic to your bedroom.

Work Around With Classic Wallpaper

Nothing makes a white bed pop like an old-school wallpaper, as you can see in this stylish bedroom. In this contrast, there’s just something so distinctive that feels both modern and captivated, transcendent, and simple.

Use Warm Lighting

Use Warm Lighting - French Country Bedroom

The warm lighting in the evenings feels natural to us and encourages relaxation. As part of our body’s circadian human rhythm, warm light seems to relax us, help us to unwind for the day, and prepare for sleep. So, having them in your bedroom is perfect, either by placing a pair of twin sconces or a bedside lamp.

Top the Minimalism With White

Top the Minimalism With White - French Country Bedroom

A well-edited area lets you breathe, whether in large and small spaces. The tight neutral color scheme in this French country bedroom prevents visual chaos. At the same time, the natural light and layers of various materials inject warmth and inviting spirit.

Add Wing Chair

Add Wing Chair - French Country Bedroom

If you’ve ever lived in an old, drafty house, you’re fully getting the reason why the world needs wing chairs. They not only wrap their arms around you and keep you nice and snug, but they’re also so amazing that they elevate the style of any room they’re gracing. While wing chairs look super in pairs, they work well on their own as well. As in this example, they’re often used to fill in a corner.
