7 Design Trends to Incorporate in Your Mountain Home Bedroom

As one of the more private spaces in a home, the bedroom should be a space where you can retreat and unwind, in both comfort and style.

As we continue with our Design Series, we touch on seven design elements you can incorporate in your home’s bedrooms. These trends will help you create a luxurious space that both you and your guests can appreciate.

1. Natural Color Scheme

As colors have the power to alter your mood, take some time to think about what you want your bedroom to feel like. Most people prefer bedrooms that feel serene and secure. One of the best ways to convey that feeling in the space is through the use of a natural color palette, given the fact that colors found in nature are proven to relax the mind and reduce stress. 

When designing your mountain home bedroom, consider looking outside for inspiration. Rich greens and muted blues achieve a feeling of freshness and tranquility in a room. Balance the colors you choose with neutral tones, such as different shades of cream, white and brown.

When choosing your colors, take into account the light in the space as the colors will change as the light of day changes. In the morning, the colors will feel softer and warmer and as the day goes on, they will become more vibrant and intense.

2. Organic Textures 

Similar to your color palette, the textures you incorporate into your mountain home bedroom should reflect the organic beauty of nature. One way to accomplish this is by using a rustic style. When you create a rustic aesthetic, the space showcases the natural simplicity and warmth of nature. Let’s take a closer look at a few design features that are characteristic of rustic design.


One of the most prevalent design elements that is used in rustic design is wood. This versatile material can be used in hardwood floors, exposed beams, and wall panelings. Using reclaimed wood gives a more earthy and natural look, enhancing the rustic aesthetic. 

Natural Stone

Natural stone is another common material used in rustic spaces. It can be used to cover an accent wall or fireplaces. Given its rough texture, it adds visual interest to any room in your luxury mountain home.


A third element to include is metal. Use metal doorknobs and handles in your bedroom, along with light fixtures and table lamps. In addition, sculptural art pieces made out of metals also make for enticing accessories in the space, while incorporating rustic design.

3. Large Windows 

When designing your mountain home bedroom, do your best to accentuate the natural light that floods the space by opting for large windows. The natural light will make the room feel more open and spacious. 

Choose windows without grids, especially if your windows are on the smaller side. Not only do they give the illusion of a larger window, they also highlight the magnificent mountain views! Another design trick to make windows appear larger is to hang your curtains higher and slightly wider than the windows themselves. This creates the perception of a grander window.

4. Fireplace

If your bedroom has a fireplace, make it the focal point of your space. You can even create a cozy seating area around the fireplace, where you can curl up with a good book. This is also a wonderful place to incorporate natural stone and metal elements. If you are designing your custom dream home, you may want to talk to your luxury home builder about the possibility of adding a fireplace to your bedroom’s architectural design. 

5. Luxurious Textiles 

When it comes to luxurious textiles, there is no more fitting place in your home than in your bedroom. The fabrics and textures you choose can add a level of sophistication and elegance to your design. Along with the texture of the textile, you can also incorporate different patterns to add interest, too. 


Let your bedding make a statement from the minute someone enters the room. When it comes to fine linens, consider premium cotton as it is softer and more durable than other fabrics. Also, look for high-end bedding pieces as they are curated with your comfort in mind.

Cushions and Pillows 

Cushions and pillows are a fun and simple way to change the look and feel of your bedroom. Get creative with vibrant colors, patterns and materials. Nowadays, there are so many different textures used to make accent pillows that your possibilities are endless!


The picturesque mountain views will naturally draw attention to the windows. So be sure that your curtains are up to par with the rest of your design! Try to choose neutral colors that do not take away from the views, but rather complement them. 

When choosing curtains, it is also important to take into consideration the material. Look for a thick, sturdy material that will help block out light, especially if the morning sunlight shines into the space.

Accent Rugs

One way to soften the space is by using accent rugs in your bedroom. Not only do they help divide the room into distinct areas, but they also add visual interest through the texture and color. Consider rustic accent rugs made of animal hyde and unique patterns, too.

6. Repurposed Furniture

Furnishing your mountain home bedroom with a few, repurposed pieces of furniture will help to maintain the rustic aesthetic. Look for interesting bedside tables, benches, lamps or mirrors as they make great repurposed furniture options. When made from recycled and reclaimed materials, they can add character to any room.

7. Unique Art Pieces

When it comes time to decorate your mountain bedroom, you may want to choose one-of-a-kind art pieces to hang on the walls and display throughout the space. These can be sentimental art pieces from your travels or local artists in your community. If you want to unify the rest of your design with the art in your space, look for art pieces with similar colors or materials that are used in the rest of the design. 

On the other hand, if you’re looking for an accent piece, choose art with bold colors that stand out from the rest of the decor. Asheville, NC is a wonderful city to go art shopping for your mountain home. With hundreds of local artists displaying their work in art galleries throughout the city, you’ll be sure to find unique pieces that add interest and personality to your bedroom. You can even get to know these artists at many of the art shows and events in the city, then commission a custom piece created exclusively for you.
