Bedroom with Ideas to Steal

Take a peek inside this relaxing, well-appointed bedroom and get nine smart ideas to use in your own space. Watch now!

Rustic Elegance

Creamy white walls, a ceramic tile floor, and a beamed ceiling create a rustic, Tuscan vibe in this bedroom. Accents like the wrought-iron chandelier and the tufted headboard lend traditional old-world appeal. Wooden elements throughout the room feature warm undertones, which make the space look welcoming and cozy.

Living Large

Oversize furniture emphasizes the large scale of this spacious bedroom. The large tufted bed frame, upholstered in a beautiful brocade fabric, is placed between the room’s two windows and steals the show as the main focal point. A massive armoire along one wall provides plenty of storage space and keeps the room looking balanced.

Great Frame-Up

In general, most people avoid positioning a bed in front of a window for fear of blocking light. But when no other wall option presents itself, follow the lead of this bedroom and make the most of an architectural asset. Framed with luscious folds of fabric and a pleated valance, this window feels like a natural extension of the upholstered headboard by mimicking the look of a canopy.

Moving Theme

A thread of reddish orange unites the patterns in this bedroom, but if you look a little closer, you'll also discover a subtle circle motif. Dots on the bed skirt and draperies, circles on the duvet cover, and rings on the Roman shades all work together to add movement to the space. The piece de resistance: a trio of porthole-style mirrors above the bed.

Balancing Act

The ceiling is definitely the star of the show in this bedroom. Its steep pitch is accentuated by wide-plank beaded board. The striped fabric used for the drapes echoes the lines on the ceiling, which creates a balanced look. The shapely bed frame helps soften the strong lines throughout the rest of the room.

Architectural Advantage

Unique architectural features deserve to be emphasized. In this room, an arched niche offers the perfect spot to tuck the bed. A pair of smaller niches flanking each side of the large one creates symmetry and provides a spot to display narrow art prints. A large chandelier hung low in the center of the room adds another layer of drama and visual interest.

Draped in Elegance

Layers of luxurious fabrics elevate the style of this bedroom. The bed is framed with folds of patterned blue-and-white and shimmering gold fabrics. Repeating fabrics offers a polished look. The duvet, headboard, bed panels, and valance are made from the same medallion pattern, and the blue of the material is picked up on the walls, window treatment trim, and select accessories.

Modern Bohemian

A clean-lined storage unit steals the show in this contemporary-style bedroom. The bed tucks easily into the built-in, creating architectural interest in the boxy room. A large, circular rug beneath the bed adds a splash of color and pattern to the otherwise neutral space. An oversize floor pouf incorporates another layer of trendy, Bohemian-inspired pattern.

Design for All

Decorating a bedroom to please both genders can sometime be a challenge, but this space is sure to please. The color palette of grays and blues strikes a gender-neutral chord. The simple headboard and clean-lined bedside tables suit more masculine interests, while the canopy surrounding the bed and the decorative throw pillows add softness.  

Romantic Retreat

Awash in soft pinks and warm golds, this bedroom looks like the perfect place to unwind after a long day. Decorative trim on the bedside table is echoed in a trio of gold-painted frames hung above the headboard. The traditional-style furniture features a weathered paint treatment, which makes the room look lived-in and inviting.

Traditional Grace

This sunny bedroom boasts traditional style at every turn, with elements such as the shapely headboard and the symmetrical arrangement of furniture. Soft mint green walls lend subtle contrast to crisp white fabrics used throughout the room. A draped, canopylike treatment behind the bed draws the eye upward and emphasizes the height of the room.

Subtle Beauty

A combination of soft pastels and calming neutrals makes this bedroom a relaxing retreat. The barely-there pink walls and modern floral-pattern bedding create feminine flair. Infusing the space with a variety of textures, like the foot-of-the-bed stools and the dimensional chandelier, ensures the neutral space looks anything but dull.

Suite Setup

This spacious bedroom offers plenty of space for resting and relaxing. The chestnut-colored four-post bed looks cozy and inviting thanks to a plethora of pillows. An armchair and footstool placed in front of the window provides a sunny spot to curl up with a good book. A large area rug placed in the center of the room ensures the furniture arrangement looks grounded despite the wide open space.

Scene Stealer

An upholstered headboard and matching bed skirt make a striking style statement in this posh bedroom. The playful polka dot-inspired pattern injects the otherwise neutral space with personality and feminine flair. The mirrored bedside tables look chic and right on trend.
