I have a little thing for cottage bedroom decor.

I love incorporating a bit of romance into the home and this design aesthetic is perfect for adding a touch of femininity to any room.

There’s a sweet, simple and serene style about cottage bedroom that makes them perfectly suited for the bedroom.

Today, I’m sharing some of my favorite cottage bedroom ideas.

Whether you’re looking for a quick way to refresh your space or a complete room makeover, these looks are the perfect way to transform your bedroom!

1. Pick a color scheme and stick with it

We all know that the key to any successful interior design project is having a color scheme to guide your decisions.

The same is true for a cottagecore bedroom!

This bedroom from us is a great example of a cottagecore color palette.

The soft greens, pinks, and yellows create a cozy, welcoming atmosphere.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match your colors, but try to stick with a few key hues to keep things feeling cohesive.

2. Use a variety of textures

Using a variety of textures is a great way to add depth and interest to your cottage bedroom.

Here, we see a combination of wood, wicker, linen, and cotton textiles, all in a soft, neutral color palette.

The result is a cozy, inviting bedroom that feels incredibly serene.

If you’re worried about your bedroom feeling too one-note, mix up your textures to keep things interesting.

3. Add a canopy bed for a fairy-tale look

Canopy beds are a classic choice for romantic or cottage-style bedrooms.

This four-poster bed is draped with sheer white curtains that give the space an ethereal feel.

The curtains can be pulled closed for privacy or to create a cozy little nook.

If you’re worried about the curtains looking too frilly,

you can always choose a more tailored fabric or skip the draping altogether and just hang the curtains from the posts.

4. Add a chandelier for a touch of elegance

Carina’s bedroom is the epitome of a cottagecore bedroom. It’s light, bright, and full of beautiful vintage furniture.

A chandelier is a great way to add a touch of elegance to a bedroom, and we love the way this one contrasts with the rustic exposed beams in Carina’s room.

5. Choose cottage-style furniture

Cottage-style furniture is often chosen for its weathered look,

which is created by adding a coat of paint and then sanding it off in places to give the piece a vintage feel.

You can also try using a mix of furniture styles in the space, as long as they all have a slightly worn look.

In this bedroom, a traditional four-poster bed is paired with a distressed dresser and a vintage-style side table to create a cozy, collected look.

6. Add built-in storage

If you’re designing a cottage bedroom from scratch, consider adding built-in storage.

This will save space and also give you the opportunity to have a custom design that suits your needs perfectly.

Whether you go for built-in wardrobes, shelves, or drawers, this is a great way to keep the room clutter-free and make the most of the space you have.

Plus, it’s a great way to add character to the room, especially if you go for a design that’s in keeping with the age of the property.

7. Decorate with vintage finds

Vintage pieces are a must for any cottage-style room. In this bedroom, a mix of vintage finds gives the space a collected-over-time look.

A pair of framed vintage botanical prints adds a nature-inspired touch to the wall above the bed.

A vintage-style dresser with a distressed finish provides stylish storage for the room.

A pair of vintage-style table lamps and a small vase of fresh flowers on the dresser give the room a cozy, welcoming feel.

8. Add a pop of color with the bedding

We love the simplicity of white bedding, but in a cottage bedroom, you can add a pop of color with the bedding.

Here, the sage green is picked up in the bench and the patterned pillows, tying the whole space together.

If you want to keep your bedding white, you could add a throw or a few accent pillows in a color that ties in with the rest of the room.

Pink, blue, and lavender are all popular cottagecore colors and work really well in a bedroom.

9. Choose cottage-style window treatments

Curtains in a cottage bedroom can range from open and airy to full and floral.

Curtains in a cottage bedroom can range from open and airy to full and floral.

In this bedroom by 2to5 Design, the window treatments are simple and unfussy,

with a white curtain hung on a rod that’s been extended to make the window appear larger.

However, in a more traditional cottage bedroom, you might find a gathered, floral-print curtain in a similar style.

10. Add a few modern touches

If you love a cottage look but still want to keep things fairly simple, then just add a few modern touches to keep the design current.

In this cottage bedroom, a simple black metal bed frame and a matching wall sconce add just enough modern contrast to the shiplap walls and ceiling.


There are many creative ways to make a bedroom cottage style, but the best part is that you can mix and match elements from each of the different methods to create a bedroom that is uniquely yours.
