It’s estimated we spend a third of our lives in our bedrooms, so this room deserves the best. Whatever your interior style, your bedroom needs to be a soothing sanctuary away from the outside world for you to recharge in after a long day. The design of this room should be carefully considered and with countless styles and schemes out there it’s tricky to pick the best one for you and your lifestyle. But don’t worry, we’ve waded through them for you and selected our top bedroom decorating ideas for your next restyle…
1. Modern Bedroom
Simple and sleek, modern bedrooms are one of the most popular style choices for sleeping space design. Often linked to minimalism, these bedroom designs are artfully unadorned with a select few statement pieces and they look particularly wow in monochrome colourways..
2. Grey Bedroom
Grey is a fabulous choice anywhere in the home. With so many different shades to choose, a grey bedroom can be crisp and cool or cosy and warm. As with any one-colour scheme, the key is in the tones you use. We love the grey bedroom above which combines soft grey and white tones on the bed against a deep anthracite wall.
3. White Bedroom
If you’re looking to create a sleeping sanctuary, you can’t go wrong with fresh white. White bedrooms look eternally fresh, clean and cool so are perfect for hotter countries and they can be warmed up with cosy textures for colder countries too. They’re a versatile look for any style of home and will create a perfectly peaceful sleeping environment.
4. Industrial Bedroom
If you have a hankering for a New York loft look, an industrial bedroom is the style for you. Metallic elements rule supreme in these bedrooms so look for vintage style metal bed frames and furniture along with muted colours and touches of brass or copper. It helps to have an exposed brick wall on hand too.
5. Blue Bedroom
Blissful blues are having their moment in the interior world which means blue bedrooms are firmly on the list. Whether dark and dramatic, or cool and refreshing, a blue bedroom can give any feel depending on the shades of blue you use. The bedroom above combines both light and dark shades and the watercolour inspired wall creates a unique statement which still complements the soothing style of the room.
6. Grey & Yellow Bedroom
One of the hottest colour combinations for bedrooms is yellow and grey. If you love the grey bedrooms we mentioned earlier in this list but still want a pop of bolder colour a grey and yellow bedroom could be the one for you. Grey is a fabulous base for sleeping spaces and nearly any accent colour will work well with it, but our favourite of the moment is the rich mustard yellow above. Stick to a few cushions and maybe a striking furniture piece, then keep the rest of the room in subtle grey tones.
7. Scandinavian Bedroom
It’s no secret that Scandi is our thing, so a Scandinavian style bedroom was always going to make the list of our favourites. Laidback and elegant, this bedroom is the perfect example of timeless Scandi style with its muted colour palette and natural materials.
8. Pink Bedroom
A fabulous accent colour or a whole colour scheme, pink has been one of the most popular colours for the home in the last few years. This pink bedroom has been teamed with darker colours which the pink instantly softens for a relaxed romantic feel you’ll want to sink into night after night.
9. Luxury Bedroom
To create a luxury bedroom you need to focus on materials and textures. Any colour scheme whether neutral or bright, will instantly take on a luxurious feel with the addition of plush textures like velvet, fur and sublimely soft Egyptian cotton sheets. Layer touches of opulent materials like shining metals and cool marbles and you’ll give your sleeping space a coveted luxury feel.
10. Black & White Bedroom
As we’ve previously mentioned, modern bedrooms lend themselves perfectly to the monochrome look. Our favourite monochrome colour palette is the classic black and white which in bedrooms is soothing yet still striking thanks to the black accents. A black and white bedroom can be as busy or as pared back as you like, just make sure you can still sleep if you add bold prints and patterns.
