These bedroom decor ideas are designed to make refreshing your space as easy as possible. Let the details below catch your eye for a serene bedroom: mix and match styles by combining a few details from a few of the photos below to create your unique style. After all, beautiful bedroom decor starts with your own personality; let it shine, and infuse it into everything!

1. Wood + Iron Furniture

Get the look: For a rustic retreat in a serene bedroom, pair metal and wood; an iron bed with an oak dresser, for example, carries an organic simplicity with just the right amount of vintage charm for effortless relaxation.

2. Nailhead Trim

Get the look: Mixing patterns in bedroom interiors doesn’t have to feel loud or chaotic – simply keep the colors subdued and similar. A chevron rug, floral drapes and nailhead baseboard, in soft neutrals, will provide a harmonious depth and cozy appeal.

3. Layered Art Gallery Wall

Get the look: Find pieces similar in subject, color and style – and use them to fill in any areas of blank wall space. Remember, too, that framed paintings don’t have to be the only form of bedroom art; in a soft shade of beige or off-white, the wall itself also offers a stunning (yet completely calming) point of focus.

4. Deep-Button Tufting

Get the look: Deep-button tufting is a hallmark of elegant traditional style – and offers a plush, inviting aesthetic. Incorporate it into a headboard for statement luxury, and complete the traditional look with accent chairs in rich oak and soft upholstery.

5. Marble Vibe Bedroom

Get the look: There’s something so soothing about natural stones, so you really can’t go wrong with marble accents. For ultra-relaxation vibe bedroom, look for a soft blend of calming yellows and cool blues and greys.

6. Toasted Pumpkin + Rich Espresso

Get the look: When it comes to orange and brown, remember: all you need is a hint (or two) of this cozy color combo for an effortless way to warm up any space.

7. Exposed Brick

Get the look: Nothing says ‘shabby chic’ quite like layers of feminine frills – and what better way to bring them out than with contrasts of texture? Pair smooth metallics (like iron) and rustic finishes (like brick) with soft rugs and bedding for an effortlessly balanced, charming aesthetic.

8.Fresh Plants

Get the look: Spruce up your style with indoor plants in pots and baskets and unexpected places (like mid-air!) for the ultimate in organic refreshment.

9. Matching Lamps

Get the look: ‘Same’ doesn’t equal ‘boring,’ as proven by these ombre-inspired bedside lamps. To bring out the lighter colors in a rich wood nightstand or area rug, opt for lamp pairs in cooler colors like blue or grey.

10. Plush Seating

Get the look: Extra bedroom seating doesn’t have to be reserved for only extra-large bedrooms. In small spaces, align a bedroom bench along the foot of the bed, and style a streamlined accent chair against the wall for comfy seating – without the bulk.

11. Nautical Stripes

Get the look: Vintage-inspired stripes and colors in elegant accent chairs and decorative boxes offer a casual-chic feel, proving nautical themes aren’t just for children.

12. Traditional Details

Get the look: There’s nothing like traditional décor to add soft warmth and a cozy familiarity. For calming, traditional comfort, opt for an intricate patterned rug – and an accent chair with roll arms and French-inspired cabriole legs to seal in the look.

13. Vintage Lighting

Get the look: Recall the simplicity – and bucolic ambiance – of life on the farm with lanterns, pendants and other forms of vintage lighting.

14. Abstract Decor

Get the look: Just because a bedroom’s décor is thought-provoking, doesn’t mean it can’t also be soothing – as proved by chic paintings in wonderfully refreshing colors and abstract designs.

15. Contrasting Designs

Get the look: Offset a contemporary bed with an antique bench, a flat-weave rug with a shag throw blanket and a crisp white nightstand with colorful potted plants for aesthetic contrast – and a soothing, Zen-like balance.

16. Spacious Storage

Get the look: Perhaps the most inventive trend to hit bedrooms is the storage bed; chic designs and spacious pull-out drawers make it effortless to keep tidy and melt stress away.

Never underestimate neutrals . . . they may seem “whisper-quiet” at first, but when it comes to their elegance, none can hold a candle!

In the 1953 film classic Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Marilyn Monroe’s character Lorelei said it best: “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.” We tend to agree. While we would have loved to haul in actual diamonds for the creation of this bedroom look, costs would have been a bit high – so we settled for the next best thing: decor as sparkly, glitzy and glamorous as can be.

Master Bedroom Decor Ideas

Master bedroom decor need a little refreshing? Get inspired by these design trends for every taste.

Look #1: Pretty Pastels

Freshen up with ‘soft + sweet.’

Hushed colors like beige, off-white or anything pastel bring a feminine touch to master bedroom decor. But remember: too many soft colors can make any bedroom – no matter how big or small – feel ‘washed out.’ The key to pulling off this timeless aesthetic? Incorporate hints of metallics; the added shine adds subtle definition without overpowering a soft aesthetic.

Look #2: Bold Geometrics

For a rush of energy, go bold.

On the other end of the master bedroom decor style spectrum, big prints, shapes and colors offer a bolt of mod energy.

Look #3: Minimalist Mindset

A classic, simplified aesthetic.

Minimalist-chic says less is more. Go easy on colors and patterns for a crisp, breezy feel.

Look #4: Room to Gather

Chic bedroom benches and chairs offer a new way to lounge.

A master bedroom should feel relaxed and inviting, so incorporate upholstered accent chairs, bedroom benches and other essentials for cozy bedroom lounging.

Look #5: Mood Lighting

Dark hues embrace ‘glamour with an edge.’

When it comes to decorating, the traditional line of thought says that the lighter the colors, the more refreshed and open a space will feel – but newer design trends are disproving this sentiment with moodier, darker palettes. Give your master bedroom space an edgy glamour with a black metal bedframe and a dark grey rug. The higher the colors are saturated, the higher the perception of depth. Plus, the subtle contrast of black-on-grey adds layered definition for cozy bedroom appeal, especially when topped off with softening purple accents.
