Planning a new look for your bedroom? We have bedroom ideas galore to inspire you, whether you want a country bedroom, modern bedroom or traditional bedroom scheme.

  • Traditional blue bedroom with carefully matched colours

    Plan your colour scheme carefully if you have a lot of elements at play. With a patterned wallpaper, painting, various cushions and a bedspread, there is a lot going on here, so it’s the careful use of colour that keeps the look cohesive.

  • Relaxed but glamorous bedroom with deep pink bed

    Create a glamorous bedroom with beautiful jewel tones. Turqouise and deep pink play off each other perfectly. A hint of pattern adds to the energy, but blocks of black keep the scheme grounded. A colour palette as fearless as this needs furniture to match, so choose a ‘hero’ piece – a show-stopper bed or sofa that’s at the heart of your scheme.

  • Pink bedroom with floral wallpaper and traditional artwork

    Nothing says traditional quite like a floral wallpaper, especially when used on every wall. If you really want to take a step back in time, hang a classic portrait, too – this one inspired the colour scheme and matches the wallpaper perfectly. Modern bedding and cushions throw a hit of the unexpected into this room.

  • Modern grey bedroom with a variety of patterned cushions

    Choose wall lights if you want to keep bedside tables free from clutter. No bedside lamps also means that you can choose smaller bedside tables, which is ideal in a compact space. This neutral room has a very relaxed feel, thanks to the soothing grey textiles. A combination of patterns creates a focal point.

  • Bedroom with muted print wallpaper and bold colour blocking

    Though often thought of as bold and distinctive, block prints can also be understated and sophisticated. This subtle wallpaper design adds a sense of depth and texture, which is enlivened by layered bed linen in ochre, citrine and petrol blue for a contemporary look.

  • Neutral country bedroom with vaulted ceiling and iron bed

    Place a bed in the centre of a room with a vaulted ceiling for a symmetrical look that enjoys sloped ceilings on both sides. Wall lights are a great way to save space on your bedside table and will be ideal for reading at night. Choose a French-style bedside table with legs to avoid the ‘blocky’ feel that floor-standing units can have.

  • Guest bedroom with laid-back day bed

    Got a guest room, but want it to be multifunctional? Choosing a day bed, rather than a double bed is a great way to make the most of the space available. This one folds out into a single or double configuration, but also acts as a sofa.

  • Neutral bedroom with two-tone walls

    Unsure about paint colours? Then taking a two-tone approach to decorating might just work for you. This room features half grey and half white walls. The white brightens the top half of the room, while the bottom paint adds a bit of depth to the scheme and complements the grey furnishings and accessories.

  • Aqua bedroom with leaf-print bedding

    Tone a bold palette with elements of white to maintain a balance. If your furniture isn’t already white, don’t hit the shops immediately. Painting over wooden furniture is a good way to repurpose it for a new scheme. Leaf-print bedding has been carefully chosen to complement the wall colour and brings a natural touch to the space.

  • Neutral bedroom with plush grey bedding

    Decorating a bedroom can be as simple as adding a few well-chosen cushions, throws or rugs, or a combination of all three. Various shades of grey create a luxurious feel here. Walls and furniture have been confined to a neutral palette that would work with accessories in any colour you like.

  • Opulent bedroom with sumptuous textiles

    Create a sense of opulent comfort with gorgeously draped fabrics. Choose neutral hues and layer up textural fabrics for a truly indulgent scheme. A striped wallpaper in a subtle colourway adds another dimension to walls, while being neutral enough not to clash with bright artworks.

  • Welcoming guest bedroom with piles of cushions

    Layer on the luxury with snug-as-a-bug textiles. It’s a sure-fire way to make guests feel welcome. A mix of whites and greys are a great base for piling on a whole host of patterns and colours. Not sure about having a blocky bedside table? A chair will do the job perfectly.

  • Neutral bedroom with burnt-orange accents

    Neutral schemes are super stylish and versatile, but you needn’t feel confined to your core palette. A hit of colour can work really well and almost any shade will fit with your scheme. Burnt orange works its magic here and the monochrome patterned cushions do a great job of highlighting the colour.

  • Clay-coloured guest bedroom with moulded ceiling

    If you have natural wood panelling, choose a paint shade that will complement it, rather than contrast with it. The white ceiling keeps things bright but still lets the architectural mouldings stand out. Spotlights provide lighting without protruding from the ceiling.

  • Attic bedroom with branch wallpaper

    Under-the-eaves bedrooms have a really magical feel about them. It’s kind of like camping, but in a more glamorous environment. So why not highlight the slope of your ceiling with a nature-inspired wallpaper? Team with some quirky accessories and you’ve got yourself one bold look.

  • Neutral bedroom with yellow striped headboard

    Give a compact bedroom a boost with a brightly coloured headboard. It’s a great way to add some life to a space that doesn’t have much room for wall art or other personal touches. Matching bedside tables and table lamps keep the look consistent, as do the pairs of cushions.

  • Modern grey bedroom with wooden chest of drawers

    Let your furniture be inspired by the great outdoors and the power of the sea. With its variety of varnishes and slightly beaten-up look, this chest of drawers is reminiscent of driftwood. Gentle greys in the rest of the palette echo the colours of the seascape painting, and result in a truly tranquil bedroom scheme.

  • Modern grey bedroom corner with blue armchair

    Pair pale grey and midnight blue together if you’re hoping to create a relaxing scheme. These colours are very serene and work really well together. A block-coloured armchair is a great way to inject some interest, but on top of the visual benefits, you’ll also have a comfy spot from which to enjoy a good book. Bonus!

  • Grey bedroom with pretty feature wallpaper

    Add interest to a pale grey scheme with a pretty feature wallpaper. It doesn’t have to be a bold design to make an impact, as this understated meadow print shows. If you want to add a touch of luxury to your bed, you can’t go wrong with a large headboard and plenty of beautifully layered fabrics.

  • Dressing area with artfully painted wall cladding

    Not into wallpaper? Wall cladding could be just the alternative you’re looking for. Here, just a small area of wall has been covered with planks, then painted in blue, grey and white to create a painterly effect. Hooks offer a great spot for storing favourite accessories. To the right is a narrow console cum dressing table, which fits the space perfectly.
