When we first moved into our home, I had no idea what my style was. But over the years I’ve come to learn that, naturally, farmhouse style is my style. So we recently re-did our bedroom and turned it into an antique farmhouse bedroom. We are lovers of all things old and antique, so it was only natural for us to combine our two styles into one!
From the antique dresser and wash stand, to the brand new Red Land Cotton bedding mirrored after the 1920s, our room is ready to be toured! If you want to see it more in depth, watch the video at the end of this blog.
My husband is my most favorite person ever. Not just because he’s my husband and he brings me coffee and donuts when I’ve had a long day covered in baby spit up. Or because he is just super awesome and handsome. But also because he brings me antique treasures that other people just toss to the side.
We knew we wanted our bedroom to be minimalistic and simple. But we also knew we wanted antique pieces in there.

The first antique farmhouse bedroom piece we found was a beautiful tiger wood dresser. More than likely out of the 1940s or so, this dresser is my favorite piece out of all the pieces. It also holds my very purged lot of clothes. I had to purge a lot to get everything to fit into here!
Confession, though. I still have some clothes in the baby’s dresser.
You can hear more about the individual stories behind these pieces by watching the video below. Or by clicking here.
The next antique farmhouse bedroom piece is this regal secretary desk. It’s efficiently used as a statement piece with some of my favorite old books. But it also became home to our deodorants, lotions, and business items.
I’ll admit, I wasn’t in love with this piece when he brought it home, but it fits absolutely perfectly in this space.
The final antique farmhouse bedroom piece isn’t pictured here, because, well, I was too lazy to photograph it when I realized I didn’t have a picture…amen. But you’ll have to take my word for it that it’s a gorgeously simple wash stand. Because, what antique farmhouse bedroom didn’t have a wash stand?! I do need to find a pitcher and wash basin for it still.
Let’s get real though, we all know that the main part of a farmhouse bedroom is the bed and bedding. Bedding in a bedroom pulls everything together, because it is the main focus of any bedroom space. Because of this, it was important for me to not only have something American made, but also a product that supports another farm family.
As I researched I found that Red Land Cotton is an American made company owned by a beautiful farming family. They grow their own cotton and make their own linens right in the good ol’ state of Alabama. Not only are their products American made and of quality, they are also some of the softest linens you’ll find.
The ticking duvet cover was incredibly easy to fill. In fact, I was wearing our (then) 6 week old while putting our bedding on. He quite loves the bedding as well. It’s the place we wake up in the morning for the first snuggles and nursing of the day. Knowing that he’s laying on bedding that is from farm to home really makes it all the more special.
Red Land Cotton’s sheets are so amazingly soft. I was concerned they might be scratchy since they came out of the package very stiff, but after a good wash, they are the softest sheets we own. I especially appreciate that they are a natural color–no dyes or artificial ingredients. Just beautiful, pure cotton.

From a bed sheet passed down from the 1920s, Red Land Cotton reverse engineered the original weave construction and yarn size to bring you linens that are truly heirloom-inspired.
Their bed sheets are unlike anything that is currently on the market. Not only are they exclusively a farm-to-home offering, but these linens are heirloom pieces, entitled to the same reverence that bed linens of yesteryear were due. Their bed linens are recreations of the bed linens of our ancestors from almost a century ago.
This was the selling point for me. Talk about antique farmhouse bedroom–I was sold!
