1. White bedding is always a good idea!
To add some farmhouse flair to the bedroom, you can’t go wrong with white bedding. White bedding provides a wonderful and crisp backdrop for your bedroom and allows you to add interest through texture and pops of color. I love this inexpensive white ruched bedding found at Walmart! The DIY barn door headboard can be found here.

2. Add a pop of color to create a visual focal point.
A great way to spice up your bedroom decor is through a bold pop of color. I love how The Honeycomb Home added architectural interest and color to an otherwise neutral bedroom with a gorgeous DIY barn door!

4. Always add architectural interest.
A feature wall in your bedroom creates a focal point for your space and adds a layer of interest. Shiplap, wood planks, faux brick, or wainscotting are all great options to explore. This plank wall was easy and relatively inexpensive to create. Click below for the full tutorial.

A vintage stool used as a nightstand and a collection of straw hats on the wall are what set this bedroom apart! Don’t be scared to take risks when decorating and utilize unexpected items in your decor.

Ceilings are often referred to as the “fifth wall” and should not be ignored. While your eye naturally goes to the beautiful stenciled wall by Making it in the Mountains, her gorgeous plank wall also adds subtle charm and character to the bedroom, adding to the farmhouse charm.

15. Try a daybed in a small space.
If your guest bedroom is small on space, a daybed is a wonderful space-saving option that can act as a couch during the day. (p.s. When you have a guest house this inviting, you better really like your guests because they may never leave!)
