A bedroom is more than just a place to lay your head at night, a bedroom is a true sanctuary. Whether your style is minimal and modern or eclectic and bold, your bedroom should be a place that you can retreat to and recharge! We love how design plays an essential part in that role. Your bedroom may be a room in your house that you’ve overlooked until now. It can be put on the back burner, design-wise, as other more “high-traffic” areas, get all the attention. We want to reign that back in and give bedrooms the attention they deserve; they are meant to be sanctuaries after all! Your bedroom can be a place where you rest and relax, gaining back calm after a long day of work. It can be a place where you enjoy your coffee on Sunday mornings or stay up late reading that book you just can’t put down. Above all, a bedroom should be a place you look forward to retreating to, with a bedroom design that speaks to you. There is no shortage of bedroom design inspiration floating around, or bedroom design style options for that matter. When starting your journey of designing your bedroom, whether it’s the first time you’re giving it attention or it just needs a refresh, think about the things you love most. A bedroom is a private area of your home, so you can let down your formal style walls, peel back the layers and create a space that makes you truly feel at peace. Your bedroom, though cozy and appealing, should also be functional to your needs. When thinking of bedroom layout ideas, you may find yourself figuring out how much storage you need, how big of a bed will fit, do you need nightstands with drawers, etc! There are a lot of decisions to be made, but many can be narrowed down once you understand how you’ll be using the space, and your “must-haves” versus what you think would be nice in your space. Some important aspects to think about in your bedroom design journey are lighting, colors, and texture. A darker and moody bedroom can have quite a calming effect, while a lighter one can feel energizing! Colors like red often aren’t used in the bedroom, but blue is quite popular due to the serene effect it has. We know it’s a lot to think about, which is why we’ve gathered so many bedroom design ideas to help you get started on your bedroom design journey!
Studios likely have limited options when it comes to setting up a home bar, but using your dresser can work just as well as a credenza. Use a tray to section off one area of the surface for bottles, garnishes, etc. And add flowers and a few decorative touches to give it a little extra personality! It’s the perfect fix for a small space.
With tailored furnishings, classic accents, and rustic details, the farmhouse bedroom is the true definition of elegance with ease. Anchor the room with a wooden bed and plush bedding, pull in a leather armchair for a cozy reading corner, hang up a round mirror for a chic focal point, and pad the floor with a comfy woven rug. It's all about layering those luxe, cozy touches!
This bedroom has a pared-back and grounded ambiance that is so alluring. To get a similar look in your space consider stripping your room down to simplistic foundational furniture, like the floating bed frame with attached nightstand, and then adding minimal room decor that pulls in the colors and textures of your furniture in for cohesive, and slightly spare, look.
You don't need color to make a statement in your bedroom! Layer a sheepskin skin over a textured woven style and keep the mix of texture going in your accent pillows ranging from velvet to braided or fur. A funky lamp brings in an eclectic vibe and crisp white accents keep the room feeling clean and light.
Sit back and relax in your Modern Rustic Bedroom! The minimal color scheme and warm woods in this bedroom design make the space feel cozy and inviting. Streamlined furniture sticks to the modern style while the Austin Leather Swivel Chair by West Elm adds a pop of color and warmth!
Odd numbers work great for styling out surfaces or in this case, dressing up the wall! Odd groupings allow your eye to move around the collection and therefore the space, taking in all the details. We love these simple yet elegant wall shelves which are perfect for showing off prized pieces!
A Mid Century bed always makes for an attractive centerpiece. With a modern bedroom, stick to furnishings with clean lines, whether it's a small round mirror hung on the wall or a geometric rug pattern. Add some pretty accents in white finish with a crisp, calming look.
We love the idea of adding a reading nook to your bedroom for an extra space to unwind at the end of the day. And you don’t have to have a lot of space to do this! A single chair and a basket for books is all you really need. Though a rug for coziness and to section off that space certainly doesn’t hurt!
This bedroom room has an approachable mix of rustic and transitional styles that it both refined and relaxed. The rustic touches of natural wood and woven elements blend in with the foundational furniture's transitional silhouettes and make the space so feel elegant yet approachable.
