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.

Grey bedroom ideas

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.

White bedroom ideas

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.

11. Tropical Bedroom

Tropical interiors is a trend that’s sticking around. From large scale leaf prints like the bedroom above, to verdant green hues and bursts of tropical flowers, this style of bedroom look will make you feel like you’re on holiday when you wake up in the morning and is a fabulously fun style to work into your home.

Dark bedroom ideas

12. Dark Bedroom

Inky colours are no longer banished to the accents of the room, they’re becoming a key style in their own right. We’ve moved on from the days when it was thought that dark walls makes a room feel small, so why not be daring and choose a dark bedroom for your next revamp?

13. Vintage Bedroom

14. Country Bedroom

If you love a rustic home look, why not consider a country bedroom? More English country pile inspired, than Stetsons and cowboy boots, we’re talking soft colours, delicate floral touches and a sprinkling of greenery like the bedroom above which wouldn’t be out of place in a charming country farmhouse.

Art Deco bedroom ideas

15. Art Deco Bedroom

If you’re going for glam, the ultimate choice would be the most glamorous of design eras. The Art Deco design movement of the roaring ‘20s is still incredibly popular today and is the perfect mix of opulent design and frivolous style. Experiment with rich colours, ornate geometrics and shimmering metallics. The room will be exuding glamour in no time.

16. Victorian Bedroom

Victorian bedroom ideas

If you’re lucky enough to own a Victorian home carrying the style on through the bedroom is a no brainer. Even if your home is a new build there are still chic Victorian style elements you can implement like shutters or more ornate cornicing for a subtle nod to the traditional style, so don’t feel like you have to always stick rigidly with the style of your home when redesigning.

17. Gold Bedroom

Is there anything more decadent than a gold interior? A gold bedroom doesn’t mean you have to go all-out with the gilding but a glimpse of gold here and there can instantly turn a room from meh to marvellous. This room caught our eye thank to the golden accents which catch the eye and would work well with many other wall colours too.

Neutral bedroom ideas

18. Neutral Bedroom

If you’re not a fan of too much colour in the home or just want to keep your sleeping space a tranquil haven, neutral bedroom ideas should be your first port of call. A combination of soft greys, beiges and whites are a classic look for the bedroom and when done probably they’ll look anything but boring.

19. Floral Bedroom

Charming and effortlessly romantic, floral bedrooms are always in style. Often seen as a spring or summer style, they are equally stylish in the cooler months too with winter florals becoming more popular. A great way to style a year-round floral bedroom is to choose a colour palette that works for all seasons, then keep accessories light and bright for summer and add richer tones in the winter, which can be easily done by swapping bed linen and soft furnishings.

20. Bohemian Bedroom

Last but certainly not least is the bohemian bedroom. Bohemian style is one of the most versatile looks out there and you can approach it with a relaxed ‘anything goes’ atmosphere, combining pieces from different decades and styles to create your own eclectic look. Whatever you add to your bohemian bedroom just make sure fun and unfussy.
