Treat your bedroom as a calm retreat from the busy nature of everyday life – a place to de-stress after a hectic day. Create a cocoon of cosiness with the help of our bedroom décor ideas to inspire you to create a theme to your space that is stylish and chic.

Opt for to neutral tones, calming blues and natural woods – play with textures, mixing wool with rich velvets and satin finishes. Add bold floral patterns to lighten the cocoon-like feel of the space with images of nature and animals to reinforce a sense of earthiness.

An inky shade of blue evokes a sense of cocoon-like calm in a bedroom. Paint walls this shade with rich satin bedlinen in lighter blues and lilac with plump pillows and cushions in on-trend painterly florals to lighten the space.

Wood and neutral materials create a cosy log-cabin feel. Wood panelling on the walls act as a perfect backdrop teamed with a French-style metal bed. Marry this décor with bedlinen in neutral tones – dress the bed with woollen throws and scatter cushions.

Make a feature of exposed ceiling beams, or sloping attic walls with the bedroom décor. Strip original doors to expose the natural wood – strip floorboards or cover floors with simple sisal carpets. Paint walls a fresh white and introduce a subtle floral print to bedding so the room to enhance a tranquil and cosy quality.

For a rich opulence to your bedroom, choose textured wallpaper on a feature wall in a rich purple or plum when decorating. An oversized velvet headboard creates a focus to the space. Contrast this décor with white walls and add a vintage-style brass bed layered with floral-print bedlinen.

Country florals evoke a peaceful, cottage-like feel to a room design. Go for a backdrop of fresh white walls and choose pretty pastel floral prints or toile prints for bedlinen in pale pink and duck-egg blue. Complete the cosy look with a simply posy of flower on a bedside table.
