Do you need inspiration to design your bedroom in the farmhouse style? We got ideas for you! In addition, we have sited where to buy all the items we found to put together the design board. It’s just a little taste of how we help our clients design a gorgeous home they can call their Sanctuary.
This is the second of many How to Decorate Series where I will pick an inspirational style and room and put together a design board to show you how you can decorate in it just like a pro. In addition to this blog I have included this board in the February edition 2022 E-Magazine.
“Let your dreams be wings”
— Tiffany Nguyen
As I wrote in my 10 Need to know Interior Design Trends for 2022 Blog, that farmhouse style is going to trend strong this year. Don’t miss out on those current trends in that blog. You must read that post after you read this.
Since it is trending I had to kick off this series with the Farmhouse Chic Style. And I am showing you how to design a chic farmhouse style bedroom. To pull this look together, I have been inspired by Vintage French style, Farm House style, and a bit of Feminine Chic.
1. Design Board
A comprehensive design includes all the functions, aesthetics, and textures of the space. The bedroom is no exception. Just because it serves as a place to sleep does not mean it should be less pretty. On the contrary, for a full nights sleep one needs a calm and harmonious environment to unwind in and rest the stressors of the day away.
I hope you will love this series of boards as I show you how to decorate a farm house style bedroom that is chic and elegant. And I hope you enjoy the full sleep article written in the E-Magazine sharing all the sleep tips in order to get a full healing nights sleep.
I love this look and I think we can agree it is beautiful, elegant, and graceful.

2. Where to find the selections
I went to my go to favorite online vendors, Wayfair, and Restoration Hardware, and found a few new ones! Here they are.
- Walls – Sherwin Williams SW7005 Pure White (for white walls) SW7036 Accessible Beige (for a bit more color) Finish Flat, Low Sheen, or Eggshell (easier to clean marks off of Eggshell) or SW7029 Agreeable Gray
- Anchor Wall with bed on it SW 7047 Porpoise flat/eggshell
- Carpet – Shaw Soothing Surround in color Desert View
- Ceiling detail – Stikwood Reclaimed Pine Sand Stone
- Fabric on bed or chair in room a Classic Linen Weave
Continuing how to decorate farmhouse style with an elegant chic twist in your bedroom. Choose from what we found below and let it being your spring board off into your creative process.

Bed Frame – Maison Fabric Panel Bed with Footboard by RH in Antiqued Grey Oak
A bend at the foot of the bench adds detail, function and aesthetics. I love the tufted look to break up the straights lines and give a nod to the European traditional influence in the “chic” part of this style. This bench from Wayfair is perfect, however, know that it is shorter than average, standing at 16″. So it works with a platform bed as shown in the image below.
The bench from Restoration Hardware is a far more accessible height at 19″.
Bedding is by far the most important accent detail to make a room look well designed, or not quite right. And I understand we all have particular textures of blankets we prefer to touch our skin and snuggle up to. This is why I love duvet covers or coverlets. They allow for the cohesiveness of design while concealing the intimacies of our textural preferences.
Curtain Rod – When looking for a curtain rod keep it within the brass, gold, or black iron finishes like this one by West Elm.
Or you wish to up the quality and body of your window dressings that will function to cover the window when closed? Reach out to us to design custom window curtains for you!
Wall Art – You may choose a textured abstract like this if you have a small wall, two stacked on top of each other. And or you may wish to do a large wall art to fill a big wall. The size will vary but approximately 47″ w x 35″ h. Art is such a personal choice, you could choose a botanical, a sepia field of grass, or a beautiful nature photo you took on one of your vacations.
Wallpaper – And if you wish to add more movement and color. Adding botanical wallpaper to a focal point wall would bring life and depth to the space. When done tastefully, adding wallpaper adds a scale of sophistication and attention to detail that elevates your farm house style room’s decor into chic. Additionally installing wainscoting to the bottom half of your wall and installing wallpaper on the top elevates a home from a simple farm house style to a polished manor.
The wall coverings I found that would be up to date, gorgeous! and add a Chic spin to the Farmhouse Style are:
- Birch Lane: Melvin Floral Trail 33′ L x 20.5″ W Smooth Wallpaper Roll Color Taupe
- Home Depot: Bladranker Beige Botanical Paper .Color Beige
- Perigold: Sanderson Embelton Bay Floral Wallpaper. Color Silver Corn
- Perigold: York Wallcoverings Candice Olson Floral Roll Wallpaper by Candice Olson. Color Soft Blue/Brown/Black
Plants: Don’t forget to bring in plants to this gorgeous look!
A Fiddle Leaf Fig is a beautifully clean and bold indoor tree that thrives in warm and humid climates. You can find one at your local garden store, or check out Bloomscape.
Ficus Danielle is another beauty that reminds one of a chic topiary of Versaille, yet is easier to maintain.
And a bowl of white roses in an arrangement with hydrangeas puts the elegance over the top in the center of your dining table. These can be fresh from your garden, or a silk arrangement.
No matter living or silk, there is no doubt that plants bring your space an elevated sense of tranquility and liveliness.
