How to Create an Elegant Farmhouse Master Suite


Farmhouse suites are the perfect blend of yesterday and today, of calming energy and time-tested dependability. It’s no wonder the world has become obsessed with farmhouse style, an aesthetic based on texture and muted colors.

Wondering how to create this look in your own master bedroom? Let’s get started.

1 | Choose a farmhouse color palette

We love the soft gray and peach of this palette by Design-Seeds. It allows for some color while remaining mostly neutral. (Neutrality is key to farmhouse style.) Allow white to be the reigning color, followed by soft gray and a shade of pastel.

2 | Keep the original details or recreate them


The wider the trim, the better! Old farmhouses are known by their elaborately large trim details, so don’t skip this step. Using two-panel interior doors and refinished wood flooring will also ensure the authenticity of the design.

3 | Add layers of touchable texture


An antique rug, faded from sunlight, and a textured throw atop the upholstered bed will make the room feel cozy. Go light on window treatments, selecting sheer drapery when possible. Natural sunlight adds to the farmhouse aesthetic.

4 | Focus on the lighting


Add a chandelier over the center of the room, provided that your ceilings are high enough. A rustic chandelier made of wrought iron or wood-like material will allow you to light the room without modernizing it. Be sure to add matching bedside tables and lamps for late night reading.

5 | Flow into the bathroom


While the bathroom can’t go without some modernization, it can still tip its hat to yesteryear with vintage octagon tile, subway tile, and vintage fixtures. A white, freestanding tub and basin sink are easy ways to keep the farmhouse mood flowing.
