There is something undeniably soothing and calm about minimalist bedroom design. Many people may shy away from minimalist design, believing it to feel sterile or unwelcoming, however that isn’t the case for much of minimalist design. Minimalist design still allows for individuals’ personality to shine through and can be the perfect design style for a bedroom space where you want to feel comfortable, yet calm and collected. One notable element you’ll find when looking at minimalist bedroom design ideas is the distinguished color palette. Or really lack thereof. A minimalist bedroom toots a neutral color scheme typically. This keeps the space feeling zen and visually uncluttered. Neutral doesn’t have to mean all gray or sterile white, however. A monochromatic color palette is a popular choice, but so is using warm neutrals. An ever-popular and trending branch of minimalist design is organic minimalism. This is a warmer and more organic version of minimalist design and can be quite beautiful in a bedroom setting. Using warm browns, wood tones and layered lighting can give life to a minimalist bedroom design. When designing your minimalist bedroom, you’ll want to choose furniture that is streamlined and unadorned. This means opting for platform-style beds over ornate posters or decorative headboards. A bed low to the ground gives a sense of “grounding” and leans into the minimalist aesthetic. You can add nightstands, use a bed with built-in nightstands, or even opt for none in true minimalist style. As far as decor goes for minimalist bedroom design, you’ll often see few or none decor items. This includes surface decor along with items hanging on the wall. Not only does this keep the room clutter-free and visually open, but with fewer surface areas in minimal design, this keeps things in proportion. This is also one of the reasons why minimalist style is very popular in smaller apartments or in locations where the landscape and view is the star of the show. Minimalist design can make a space appear larger and actually give a sense of calm by keeping a small space less cluttered. And in a location where the view is not to be disturbed, a minimalist design can keep items quite literally low profile and not distract from the surroundings of the dwelling. With the lack of decor in minimalist bedroom design, lighting takes new importance. Layered lighting not only adds ambiance, but the lighting fixture itself can take center stage and act as the art in the bedroom.Whether you are just looking for minimalist bedroom layout ideas or are searching for minimalist bedroom design inspiration, we have ideas for you.

We were inspired by Urbane Bronze, the 2021 Sherwin Williams Paint Color of the Year to create a glam, earthy, and bold bedroom design. Using the subtle muddy undertones of the wall color, our designers incorporated elements of nature such as seagrass, jute, linen and wood into the design–all while curating the space with a minimal-glam edge.
