    This bedroom is gorgeous as a whole, but one of the best ideas here is the contrast between the rough, untreated plank floors and the baseboard that has been painted in a high-gloss white, making the room look more expensive.

    Hang an old rug or quilt to fashion a brand-new kind of headboard for your bed. This one dates to 1854 but, used in this fashion, looks very up-to-date.

    This bunk bed room may fit a ton of guests to this cabin, but it also has a cozy feel thanks to functional built-ins and wrought-iron railing. Instead of traditional twin- size bunk beds, the homeowners decided to build six queen-size versions. The room also contains two twin beds, bringing the sleeping total in this space alone to 14 people. Talk about a slumber party!

    Because the "Bird Suite" is long and narrow, the homeowners chose to forego a king-size bed and instead opted for two queen-size iron beds from Garnet Hill to more symmetrically fill the space. Here's how to create a cozy space in a large cabin for guests to stay.

    Vacation homes shouldn't take themselves too seriously. The headboard in this cabin adds chirpy, nature-inspired charm to the cozy master bedroom.

    The guest bedroom in this rustic log cabin seamlessly merges the old (a map of Vashon Island from the 1920s) with the new (a supple leather armchair from retailer J. Peterman).

    Guests won't fret about walking around on creaking floors or disturbing you every time they get up if you throw down a plush rug. It also helps to warm up a bedroom.

    Bold buffalo checks—this time in red—resurface on these handmade log beds. Previously bunked, they now better accommodate grown-up guests who visit this rustic and cozy cabin.

    The rustic bedroom in this cabin is so cozy! The handsome cannonball bed is one of the few new pieces in the home. Layers of white bedding keep the mahogany item from feeling heavy, while a pretty pastoral scene in its original gold frame and marble bedside lamps dress up the room without adding a lot of fuss.

    The upstairs loft of this Tennessee cabin sleeps two, with matching twin beds. Its wall of stacked books gives the room a dramatic focal point.

    A side table with at least one drawer can make all the difference for organizing your bedroom.

    Use leftover lumber to make a simple wall rack for displaying old paddles.

    Sarah Richardson says: "This new bedroom was created from what used to be a storage area. I installed a wall to convert it to two-thirds sleeping quarters (complete with a sink) and one-third closet. Installing wide pine boards in a chevron style creates interest on the wall — and eliminates the need for a headboard."

    You can double up on storage by using a pair of dressers as bedside tables.

    Sarah Richardson says: "The full-height windows make the lake feel as if it's lapping right at the floor, so I bathed the entire room in watercolor hues. Pillows and drapes offer a simple way to add softness. When updating interiors, I like to keep some elements that are a touchstone of the past. This ceiling was left natural for a warm feel, while the walls were painted pale gray."

    White walls pair with hardwood floors, bringing in light that's reflected thanks to beautifully arched ceilings in this guest bedroom.

    While this master bedroom has many of the smart country design decisions we've seen throughout the home, we love its careful symmetry. Decorative side tables are precisely placed underneath tall windows, which bring in plenty of light on either side of the bed.

    Composed of red oak, the dramatic shape of the "Duchess" bed (that headboard!) creates the perfect rustic-meets-refined effect. This cabin's bedroom gas a shabby chic look that we cannot get enough of.

    In the master bedroom, low windows stand out as a peculiar architectural decision that Amanda has chosen to fully embrace. "You feel like you are sleeping in a treehouse," she told Houzz.

    With low ceilings and small windows, the bedroom lacked architectural interest. To remedy this problem, they enlisted a one-of-a-kind headboard and plenty of patterned textiles.

    The wood headboard (created by smartly pairing two twin headboards) provides a focal point in the bedroom, and the entwined-wood chandelier complements its finish.

    In the master bedroom, Smith hung an 1854 textile in place of a headboard. The wall art is actually pressed sea kelp, purchased at a flea market during a vacation in Paris.

    Don't squander a single nook or cranny! A spare corner in the guest room gets a pick-me-up with a tea cart-turned-side table.
