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.

  • Elegant white bedroom with French bed

    Make a simple white scheme stand out with classic French-style furniture. With their raised feet, curved shape and ornate carvings, French beds will add a little luxe, without the need for colourful flourishes. Distressed finishes are very popular right now and keep the look current.

  • Neutral bedroom with patterned curtains

    Add a statement piece – neutrals can become a little one-note without a few standout objects. Here, the bold patterned curtains and the artwork above the bed boost the style stakes in this bedroom. Stacked pillows are a great steal from hotels, and really do make the space look more inviting.

  • Pretty bedroom with feature wallpaper

    Hang a feature wallpaper on one wall of your bedroom to create a luxurious effect. The wall where the headboard of your bed is the best place to go for, as it is the natural centre of the room. Choose a design in a relaxing colour and print so that it doesn’t make your mind buzz before bed, and keep furniture white to let the design stand out.

  • Country bedroom with fluffy faux-fur throw

    Create a warming country bedroom scheme with faux-fur throws and plenty of cushions – heaven for curling up on a cold night. Neutral paint on the walls allows flexibility when decorating, but provides a warmer look than white tones, which is especially important in a country cottage, where you want to feel snug.

  • Serene blue bedroom with birdcage wallpaper

    Create a calming space for you to slumber with pale duck-egg blue on the walls. Blue is well known for its ability to relax the mind, so it’s ideal in a bedroom. Teamed with a striking wallpaper in a similar shade, this pretty scheme also features pale gold highlights in the curtain fabric and mirror.

  • Monochrome bedroom with map wallpaper

    Decorate your monochrome scheme innovatively with an antique-map wallpaper. With its swirling pattern, it creates plenty of visual interest, a feeling of movement and reflects an interest in travel. The four-poster bed has been carefully chosen and its clean lines simultaneously manage to add wow factor to the room without stealing attention away from the paper.

  • Compact bedroom with traditional gilt-edged mirror

    Create a sense of space in even the most compact bedroom by planning your storage needs carefully. This bedroom has a bespoke shelving unit that has been built around the headboard, which is ideal for keeping all those bits and bobs that would otherwise have no home. There’s not a huge amount of space to walk around the bed, but the addition of a full-sized mirror tricks the eye into believing there’s more room than there is. With its ornate design, it makes a gorgeous feature, too.

  • Rustic bedroom in Highlands-inspired country cottage

    Earthy tones in the bedroom create a soothing, homely feel. Here a cabin bed tucked into a small room with timber walls made from reclaimed wood makes for a snug, inviting retreat, allowing a selection of mismatched textiles to come to the fore. The thick rug adds texture to the room, giving it a touch of cosiness and luxury to contrast with the bare timbers.



  • Vintage style bedroom with subtle pattern

    A pretty floral wallpaper sets the tone in this vintage-style bedroom. A chest of drawers has been upcycled with a coat of pale grey paint and a large gilt mirror above provides a focal point. Smaller oval mirrors echo the style, and the display is finished off with a quirky butterfly lampshade.

  • Deep blue and green bedroom with power print patterned wallpaper

    For a wallpaper feature, choose a pattern that incorporates the same tones as your painted walls. Calm blues can offset the business of a lot of pattern, so indulge in some really beautiful prints – the wallpaper and curtains here are an original William Morris design – and turn your bedroom into a walk-in work of art. And while white lifts and freshens, the black bed frame acts as a mellower, more grounding accent to a blue-and-green mix.

  • Traditional bedroom with a cherry blossom theme

    Create a welcoming look in a guest bedroom with a warm shade of yellow. Curtains and a long bolster cushion in a delicate cherry blossom design add to the charm.

  • Luxe master bedroom with dark, soothing colours and black accents

    Going for dark colours in the bedroom makes it feel luxurious, cosy and a little bit sexy. Be brave and try a dark navy blue or even black on the walls, and consider black accents such as bedside tables and bedding.

  • Pretty bedroom with vintage touches

    An antique French bed and sofa sets a decorative tone in this pretty, timeless bedroom. A vintage chandelier enhances the style and an ornate oval mirror creates a focal point above the bed.

  • Attic bedroom sitting area

    A large attic bedroom gives you the perfect opportunity to create a warm and inviting sitting area from the unused space in the eaves. In this room, chalky white walls and comfy linen armchairs are the perfect basics for a rustic-style scheme and keep the space looking light and bright. An oversized rustic mirror adds a focal point and provides texture along with the wooden side table and soft cowhide rug. The look is simple, warm and beautifully blended and, with the odd vintage accessory, makes a very cosy retreat.

  • Rustic dressing room with flamingo accents

    Bring a playful tone to a corner of a country bedroom, with a pink flamingo-themed dressing area. Cover your practical needs by teaming a traditional wooden dressing table (plus matching mirror) with a fresh white-and-candy-pink stool, then add quirky accents – in this case flamingos – in different sizes and materials. A pretty orchid in a fresh-white planter balances the eccentric style.

  • Modern bedroom with muted palette of warm gold and grey

    Warm up a grey-painted bedroom with a contrasting golden palette. Rich wooden furniture, for example, can bring comfort and cosiness to a neutral backdrop. If you’re planning to boost texture and focus on colour, keep the rest of the space clean; bedside furniture with a simple silhouette, and a tall, streamlined charcoal headboard reinforces a sense of deep luxury. Draw golden colours through the space, and transform the room, by picking soft furnishings in bright yellows and golds.

  • Grey bedroom with lime-green accessories

    When it comes to neutral walls, grey is a fantastic alternative to white – choose the right hue for the natural light in your room, and it can add a touch of depth and warmth to a bedroom. Emphasise that feeling by layering various shades of grey, and introducing pops of colour. Here, lime-green accents lift the neutral palette beautifully, and draw attention to the fireplace by pulling out the tones of the tile surround.

  • Traditional English Cottage bedroom with French design touches

    Not everything has to be bright and modern. A touch of darker wood and an antique look can provide a nice contrast to a new room. The beams used in this new space have an aged look, after being specially treated. And the French-style dressing table gives the corner a delicate, old fashioned touch. Keep the rest of the room calm with pastels and muted colours.

  • Traditional English Cottage bedroom with French designs

    For a really grown up room, look to ornate French furniture, gold, white and dark woods. The blue accents here give some balance to the rich decoration of the dark beams and complicated mirror and lamp designs, and the lean white paintwork lightens the whole room, giving an old world feel with modern day comfort.

  • Scandi children's room with mint green wall floral headboard

    If you’re keen to use colour in the bedroom, take time to get the shade exactly right. The owners here sourced the wall colour using a bespoke mixing service, achieving this lovely pale mint green. Pastels are a good alternative to cream, white or grey in walls, as they act as a fairly neutral backdrop, but lift the room to a brighter level. Here the room can support the fabulous gold mirror, floral headboard and colourful bedspread.
