Some like it dark and moody, while others like it bright and airy. Whether you belong to the former or the latter camp, the look and feel of your bedroom must be comfortable for you, as it’s where you’ll retire to every night. Here are several bedroom designs to aspire to.
SPLASHES OF COLOUR
Bold hues of green and blue, paired with wood and grey tones, can channel the look of Nordic-inspired interiors.
BIG ON ART
Art collectors, this look is for you! Make space for your prized collection and dedicate the best spots in your room for your favourite piece. A large artwork above your headboard is sure to make a statement in this intimate space.
PORTALS AND FRAMES
To easily delineate spaces within the bedroom, design alcoves that help frame the bed or windows, or even a feature wall. This way, the room looks neat, with space-planning well thought out.
POPS OF PASTELS
If grey seems all too dreary, complement it with pops of pastel hues, like a pink headboard or a peach wall organiser. It’ll also help balance the sense of masculinity and femininity in the space.
Take inspiration from posh hotel suites and get that look for your own bedroom. Decorate with opulent accessories, from a classy chandelier to gold-finished bedside lamps, and create a sense of cosiness with soft furnishings like blackout curtains and throw pillows.

Keep your bedroom design simple yet edgy, with a touch of industrial style to boot. With raw elements such as concrete screed finishes, you’ll expect to work with a clean slate – dress up the space with fun decor accessories and knick-knacks for a personalised touch!

PRETTY IN PRINTS
True to a mostly-white palette – minus the parquet flooring, which helps ground the look – an artistic choice of wallpaper lends character to the space.
Appreciate high ceilings, if you have the luxury of it in your bedroom. Think of ways to draw the eye up, with interesting architectural details such as exposed beams and structures. This strategy is a good way to hide any unsightly exposed wires or trunking, too.
Embrace the industrial look in its entirety and go with exposed cables and bulbs, and textural surfaces such as raw brick walls. The tactility that this interior design style carries is something many appreciate.

Instantly add a warm glow into the space with wood finishes all around. The natural grain and textures help elevate the look to add a touch of elegance, too. Complete the cosy ambience with the use of warm-white lighting.
