Decorating a home in the rustic style goes beyond basic furnishings. Yes, the dressers, beds, chairs and lighting are excellent ways to add a rustic feel to your home. But, by pairing your furniture with the right accessories, you can add another level of depth to your design. For example: the bedroom. A dark or light-wood rustic bed is a great focal piece for a rustic room. You can really add to the appeal by choosing the right type of bedding. Here are a few options to consider:
Patchwork quilts are ideal for rustic themes. The homespun look and feel of the covers blend seamlessly in with the décor. The best part about patchwork quilts is that they come in a variety of designs, colors and patterns. Quilts are warm, attractive and really and a feeling of home to any space you use them. Patchwork quilts do tend to be on the pricier end of bedding options, but you get what you pay for. Patchwork quilts are high quality, comfortable and attractive. You might choose a patchwork quilt like the Autumn Leaves Quilt Set

Comforters are a slightly less expensive bedding option. Comforters tend to be thicker and offer a different look than the quilt. There are plenty of comforter designs and some even offer the flexibility of being reversible. Comforters are a great option for main bedrooms or guestrooms. Comforters may not have the detailed stitching and delicate details as a quilt, but you'll find more than enough design options when you choose a comforter. Rustic comforters tend to be more flexible in design and you can find designs and colors that will please even the pickiest teenager! You may choose a simple design like this Denali Earth Spirit Bedspread
. The simple design and bold colors will brighten up any bedroom.
While throw blankets probably won't, and shouldn't be your main choice, for bedding, they make great additional bedding options for guests who get especially chilly or for nights that don't require the use of a quilt or comforter. Throws are a great way to add color or personality to a bedroom without committing. You can choose a bolder pattern to pop against a neutral bedspread or opt for a more neutral throw blanket for rooms that are more brightly designed.
In addition to throw blankets you may want to consider throw pillows. While most people won't use these for sleeping, they add an extra layer of decoration to the bed. Throw pillows are a very simple and inexpensive way to add more color and more depth to any design. When you need a quick redesign for a bedroom, throw pillows are by far the easiest and fastest ways to accomplish a redesign.
Creating the bedroom of your dreams doesn't have to be a headache or a hassle. By choosing the right bedding and accessories you can completely change the look of your room.
