Even though your bedroom is an area many of your guests may never actually see, it still deserves a great deal of attention in the bedroom design. It’s where you recharge, reflect on the day, and even spend time reading a book, so it only makes sense for it to feature the right color palette and furnishings.
This collection of 10 images of bedroom design is chock-full of inspiration, innovative tips, and decorating tricks:
Perhaps there is no other room in the house where you’ll appreciate lush, opulent textiles and finishes than the place you’ll spend most of your time. In Sophia Amoruso’s Los Angeles jewel box, a custom silk velvet bed frame is dressed in Frette sheets and blanket and placed aside brass and black lacquer nightstands and handmade silk drapes.
If you grow tired of things easily, using curtains as a creative headboard lets you update your contemporary bedroom to fit every season and mood. In the master bedroom of a palatial Florence estate, the bed coronet and curtains are of an Ian Mankin stripe.
There’s no need to go overboard with the art in your modern bedroom: pick one piece that speaks to you and also makes a statement. This charming bedroom in an Uruguayan country house prominently features a painting by Eva.
A COMFORTING COLOR PALETTE
You want everything in your bedroom to exude comfort, and the color palette is no exception. Whether you’re a fan of warm or cool shades, pick colors that you naturally gravitate toward and give you a sense of calm. This home in Mexico opted for organic colors like ocean blue and deep brown. The statement wall is painted with Patagonia by Comex and the Eames chair and ottoman are by Herman Miller.
A VARIETY OF TEXTURES
Of course, your bedding is plush as could be, but don’t forget texture throughout the rest of your room. The guest bedroom of a glamorous Illinois home plays with texture by incorporating a black channel-quilted leather headboard and a Moroccan wedding blanket covered in sequins.
A STATEMENT BED FRAME
Give your personal space some glamour with a statement bed frame. From four-posts to platforms, the options for modern furniture are endless. In the master bedroom of a Connecticut weekend home, this bed frame is by Hickory Chair and dressed in Restoration Hardware linens.
A COMFORTABLE RUG
Nothing ruins a happy morning than stepping out of the bed onto a cold, hard floor. Do yourself a favor and make sure your feet are greeted with a beautiful cushy rug. Opt for something soft, stylish, and timeless, and you’ll be destined to keep it forever.
A SEATING AREA
This modern bedroom, designed by Emil Humbert and Christophe Poyet, has more than one area to unwind. A good spot to sit down will serve you well when you’re reading or need to have a conversation with your partner. It’s also great for putting on shoes or checking email so you can leave tech out of your bed.
A COOLER CANOPY
Canopies of the frilly and flouncy variety are best suited for the childhood bedroom of your dreams. But in luxe materials—here, a mirrored bed frame is upholstered in Romo velvet—the accent feels all grown-up.
Sticking to one light color is an easy way to make a small bedroom feel less claustrophobic. In a young couple’s monochromatic Swedish home, the master bedroom blends white and cool brown for a color scheme that makes the petite space feel more open and airy. The bed is by Hästens.
