You may only regard your bedroom as a sleeping space, but after a long hard day it’s important to have an area where you can relax and recharge your batteries peacefully. You may not realise this, but interior design plays an integral part in ensuring you get a good night’s sleep. There are several stylish and functional styles which are designed specifically to create a calming atmosphere in your home. If you’re considering redecorating your bedroom, take a look at our top picks of designer bedrooms and get inspired to create the relaxing haven you deserve.
Elegant and Girly
Pastel colors are a great choice for a young girl's bedroom, but you should never decorate the whole room pink. Most young girls will remain in the same bedroom as they grow up, so they probably won't appreciate bubblegum pink when they get older. Combining hues of light pink and blue creates an even balance of colors that doesn't risk looking childish. The addition of a bed canopy featuring a feminine floral pattern will appeal to any young girl who fantasizes about being a princess, but will still look elegant when the girl becomes a young adult.
Gray plays an integral part in this simple but glam bedroom. Different shades of gray are layered together with warm autumnal colors to prevent the room from looking cold and remain a cozy living space. Bright purple flowers stand out against the gray background and provide fun pops of color to the room, while roman shades are stylishly placed beside the bed.
Cozy and Rustic
Deep colored wood is used on both the floor and walls to create a cozy and rustic look. This is enhanced further by the wooden bed frame which acts as a focal point for the room. An antique rug in a soothing warm tone of red is displayed at the bottom of the bed to amplify the homely atmosphere, while a hanging chandelier adds a bit of luxury to the room.
With its large use of green, the design of this boys bedroom looks perfectly suited in a country home. The bunks of this room are inspired by Pullman train cars and even have curtain shades to give the two owners of the room their own privacy. Warm autumn tones from the bedding and lamp shades balance out the green , while a soft neutral colored rug adds coziness to the room.
Clash of the Patterns
Clashing patterns has become a fashionable trend in clothes, and now it's making its way into bedrooms too! A huge collection of warm colored patterns and textures are layered over each other to create this quirky and cozy looking bedroom. To tie all of the patterns together, elements of gold, pink and red are used throughout the interior design of this room.
Striking blue flowered wallpaper brightens up this master bedroom without looking too feminine. Additional complimentary blue accents are displayed around the room featuring an assortment of eye catching patterns which stand out against the plain furniture and bedding. A striped rug and stool is suitably placed away from the flowered walls to prevent a clash of patterns. However the headboard features a blue and white print that matches the colors used for the stool to ensure the style of interior design flows throughout the room.
Bedrooms are designed for relaxation, so to create a calming atmosphere, a palette of neutral colors is highly recommended. The combination of soothing grays for the bed and flooring, with soft cream drapes makes this bedroom look elegant and serene. Adding textures such as the oatmeal wool felt with pretty tassels also enhances the cozy and relaxed feel of the room. Flowers and plants on display in the corner of the room and the bedside table offer soothing capabilities and boost the fresh and clean look of the bedroom.
Lavender is a beautiful and balanced choice of color for a bedroom as it's derived from a mixture of red and blue, which are associated with warm and cool. Purple hues add sophistication to any room, and are strongly featured on the headboard, cushion and bedding. This gorgeous color is also found in small doses on the wallpaper, to prevent it from being overused. As well as purple, accents of blue are on display beside the bed, while a plant pot of yellow flowers brings a summery cheerful look to the room. For the finishing touch, a cozy cream rug is placed on the floor to add a neutral tone against the large use of pattern and color.
This bedroom proves that just because you're a grownup doesn't mean you have to forgo the pink. Neutral cream colored wallpaper featuring subtle illustrations of flowers surrounds the bedroom to create a soothing and relaxed atmosphere. Small elements of pink are dotted around the bedroom to give it a sophisticated feminine touch without looking too much like a Barbie dream house. A bright pink lampshade is placed beside the bed, which is covered in pink patterned white sheets and a soft pink throw. To complete the look, pretty monogramed pillows are on display, which match the gorgeous rosy pink bench at the bottom of the bed.
Sunny yellow hues provide a cheery outlook to this small bedroom. The walls are painted in a subtle tone of yellow to add warmth to the room, while the light from the gorgeous ceiling lamp bounces off the walls and instantly brightens up the room. Bright yellow is very glaring and risks looking too childlike, so a deep mustard shade is used for the bedding to resemble the color of a gorgeous sunset. A variety of artwork featuring colors that are already on display in the bedroom are placed on the walls to give the room character and also create a focal point.
