For an authentic country cottage or farmhouse look then you can get away with furnishing the country style bedroom with an eclectic mix of antique or vintage furniture items.  Not everything has to match as long as you can find furniture in shapes and colors that compliment each other.  This is the way rooms would have been furnished for centuries with older items being retained and new pieces of furniture gradually introduced over a period of years.  So to create a believable country style interior then you may chose to hunt for exciting items in markets, antique stores or at auctions.

 Most of the furniture shown here is on a relatively large scale suitable for more spacious interiors.  If your rooms are smaller then it is not a good idea to try and cram too much into the space.  Rather, select one or two statement pieces to set the mood and combine these with built in or concealed storage solutions.


Suitable Fabrics and Colors for the Traditional Country Style Bedroom

There is no hard and fast rule as to what colors and patterns recreate the atmosphere of a traditional country style bedroom.  However, in general colors should be muted, whether they are light or dark.  Fully saturated primary or secondary colors would only look good on isolated features, therefore its best to confine your palette to tints or tones of your preferred colors.  Most leading paint manufacturers have color charts dedicated to their vintage or period paint ranges.

As you can see in the pictures, these may range from: crisp linens, heavy woven wool blankets, sumptuous velvets and gorgeous brocades.
