Modern Rustic Decor Ideas in a Serene Bedroom Suite {Amanda Barnes}

It’s not everyday you stumble upon an inspiring interior design bedroom project that strikes a balance between modern rustic decor, a subtle and dreamy soft neutral color palette, and lovely Spanish style. The decor in this bedroom and bath by Amanda Barnes has me smitten and in a slow living state of mind.

Designer Amanda Barnes “believes in timeless spaces tailored to the needs of each client. Every last detail is carefully thought through which results in a home where no corner has been unturned. Being a mother of two herself, Amanda knows the importance of a space that works for the family, a space that makes life easier, memories sweeter, and the details of the day flow seamlessly.”

I thought you might enjoy touring this serene zen bedroom and bath with rustic modern decor and so many tranquil design details. It’s petite, minimal, unfussy, youthful, simple, and not at all showing off. You’ll also find suggestions for home decor and furnishings sprinkled into this tour which may be helpful for decorating ideas and sourcing for your own space.

What makes the design style and home decor modern rustic?

When you think of rustic decor, you may imagine a mountain lodge or cabin in the woods with unrefined, rough edges and possibly hides and taxidermy throughout. But modern rustic or rustic modern decor is distinguished by the presence of lighter, brighter balance brought to the mix. While a rustic stool made of beautiful wood looks right at home in a modern rustic room, it’s probably not going to join a rustic table, rustic bed, and a rustic nightstand. More modern pieces with simple clean lines and contemporary art  join the raw natural pieces, and white paint is commonly chosen for the walls. You’ll also notice the use of prints for textiles and accessories is limited and prints typically making an appearance are subtle geometrics (if there are any at all). A simple branch in a clear glass vase or an arrangement of eucalyptus looks more at home in rustic modern interiors than a fresh floral bouquet. See these slow living stories for more examples of modern rustic inspiration. Here are some other qualities of modern rustic decor that come to mind:

Natural beauty (It provides a groundedness and comfort.)

Undone and Breezy. (Which means it can evolve easily.)

Textures Derived from Nature (Rattan, seagrass, stone…)

A limited, simple color palette (It’s tranquil and timeless.)

Laid-back Luxe (Chic hippies feel welcome for sure!)

Organic warmth (Wood and linen for example.)

Unpolished, Rough Hewn Beams (They announce “we’re casual here.”)

Uncomplicated details (Easy breezy style.)

Raw Materials (Forget varnished and laquered!)

Masculine, not Dainty (Hold the ruffles, please.)

Un-painted Wood (Step away from the chalk paint.)

No-fuss fabrics (Like wool, linen, canvas, and cotton.)

Uncluttered Ease (Opposite of Granny’s style.)

A Little Country + A Lovely Liberal Dose of Chic

    Love this style on all levels…just simply love…the colors, the simplicity, the elegance. All I can say is love!

      Isn’t it funny that for some of us who admire uncluttered spaces, we could stare forever at rooms that have almost nothing in them the way that maximalists love to stare at a room filled with treasures!?! So glad you liked the project, Joan. xox

    Hi Michele, I always drink my morning tea while reading your blog. You definitely had the gift of “procurement”, as my father would say, the ability to find that thing that alludes most people. I am obsessed with some pendant light fixtures I saw on the Coastal Living Website under “These 10 Home Designs Will Be Huge in 2018” The photo I’m referring to is listed as: The Trend: A New Neutral featuring a kitchen island w/ the most amazing pendant lights (caged brass in a diamond pattern). I can’t find them ANYWHERE…the designer is listed as Elly Boston. Her website appears to be inactive. I’m sure other readers would find these fixtures (the entire room really) enchanting, if your up to the quest.
    Best Regards,

      Hi Maria. I’m so glad to have you in this lovely tribe. I have contacted the designer about the source and will circle back here and let you know if she provides the source of those beautiful nautical pendants. Peace to you, friend.

      Hi again, Maria. I heard back from the designer, and those nautical pendant lights are vintage from a boat and were re-wired for the design. Even though it’s disappointing we can’t buy them, I am reminded that sourcing an antique or vintage find is a lovely way to customize a kitchen! 🙂
