Out of every space in a home, your bedroom is without a doubt the most personal. Even though it's an area many of your guests may never actually see, it still deserves a great deal of attention. 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. And let’s not forget that it also has to showcase your design style accurately and complement the overall aesthetic that’s reflected in other areas of your home.
A gorgeous mint green carpet introduces a touch of personality and luxury to this modern bedroom designed by Hecker Guthrie. The flax linen slipcovered bed frame, charcoal gray pillows, and greenish gray sheets. create the perfect color story. We also love the contrast between the sleek white modern side table and lamp with the relaxed linen bedding.
In this stylish, rustic bedroom, Minnesota based design firm Martha O’Hara Interiors took the masculine edge off a reclaimed wood ceiling and stone fireplace with contrasting fabrics. Details including the plush neutral bedding and the country plaid curtains add softness and a sense of balance to the room. There is no need for a traditional end table when you have tree stump you can paint half white. The small wing chair on the right may not seem like a typical choice for a rustic bedroom, and that's the point. It lends sophistication while providing a practical purpose.
Modern farmhouse style puts a fresh twist on rustic details to create a modern space that feels both homey and chic. Case in point, this lovely bedroom by Amber Interior Design based in Calabasas, California. Wood paneled walls were brightened up with white paint. A pretty headboard and accent pillows evoke cozy feelings. The cherry on top is the wicker mirror that lends a stylish bohemian vibe.
There's a certain ethereal feel to attics because of the unique architectural lines. If you have an a-frame or sloped ceiling, embrace that dreamy vibe with romantic materials and light colors. The way the light pours into this room is just divine—we'd never want to leave this little cocoon. Decorate with loose linens, a netted pendant light, and a vintage area rug for a pop of color.
In newer construction, drywall is normally hollow and supported by vertical 2x 4 wood beams (studs) that are 16” apart. If your bed is set up on a non-exterior wall, use a stud finder to mark where your bed’s wood wall beams are and cut out an alcove. Your new alcove may not be incredibly deep, but it may be all you need for small necessities like an alarm clock or some personal items.
If you want to make a fast impression in any bedroom decor, then paint. Did we say that already? ;0 This room was done by ‘HGTV‘ viewer CvilleJanice..This bedroom is simple and sweet, and it’s because of that awesome blue on the walls! Ok, her DIY headboards (she used paint to update those as well!) and pretty quilts are also major players. But can you see how easy it is to makeover a bedroom, just with paint?
Hello, you asked for the color of paint that is used on on the bedroom walls with the bedding thats gray & yellow. I loved that color also but didn’t know the name of it. So I printed that photo out & brought it into “Home Depo” where they was able to mix some paints togeather to get that exzact color in the photo. I painted my bedroom with it & it looks GRATE & right on to the color in that photo.
Transform a neutral bedstead with a floral duvet and pillowcases. Finish with a wool throw in a paler sky hue for an elegant look. To make your room feel larger and brighter, paint the walls in a chalky off-white or pale shade of blue. For a more dramatic statement try a darker backdrop, which will look gorgeous with bright white and inky blue linens.
Your small bedroom may be a blessing for a better night’s sleep. The American Sleep Association recommends keeping stimulating activities out of the bedroom. They warn that distractions like the TV, internet, and work can disrupt your sleep patterns. So, the less there is to do in your bedroom, the more sleep you set yourself up for. How’s that for smart design?

We love how this bedroom designed by Regan Baker boasts a bohemian feel despite the statement piece: That large-scale photograph of a traditional yellow bedroom. For a similar look, opt for a high-impact photograph of an interior that both reflects and juxtaposes your own space. And in true bohemian fashion, simply lean it against the wall instead of hanging it.
