A major overhaul of the master bedroom is in the works. As usual, this wasn’t on our radar until a few weeks ago, but as I glanced around our semi-lackluster bedroom after the baby fog co-sleeping days, the more I realized it truly has been calling out for some attention. (Does that make sense?) The aftermath of a baby? Is this a cry for help? Make a day of it and listen to the mom jokes while you’re at it. It’s not hard to get by here.
Although we’ve done a good deal of decorating, we haven’t actually finished the room or even come up with a “game plan” for it. To give you a taste of what we’re working on, I’d like to show you some master bedroom designs. Maybe they may help you with your bedroom as they did for me, and give you some inspiration.
Even if you disagree, there’s no doubting that the bedroom is a crucial part of your house. An oasis of calm in the middle of hectic work and family obligations schedule is an absolute necessity. That’s why it’s so important to look for inspiration in bedroom design ideas.
As a contributing editor at House Beautiful, I’m no stranger to the power of good design to lift spirits. However, I have the support of a sizable portion of the scientific community. According to a 2015 survey in the Journal of the Association for Psychological Science, most people believe that their emotional well-being is influenced (and, in some cases, regulated) by a room’s acoustic environment. For this reason, your bedroom should be a place where you can relax and decompress.
If you want to make your bedroom feel like a place where you can relax, you should first make it feel warm and inviting. You want to make sure that it reflects your style, combines your favorite materials and colors and patterns, shines the proper light, and maximizes space. Here, you’ll find everything you need to spruce up your bedroom.
To help you build the perfect bedroom, we came up with 65 options. A more restful night’s sleep can be yours no matter how daring you dare to be, what size of space you have to work with, or what furniture style you prefer. They’ll also be a hit with your guests.

Fit Furniture to Size:
If your bedroom is on the smaller side, you may have to get creative regarding the furniture you use. Each object in this room has been carefully selected to fit in the limited area. Since it’s on the narrower side, they ensured the two-tiered bedside table on the other side of the bed supplied extra surface space, like the narrow bedroom table. More economical small-space furniture may be found at Wayfair.
It’s time to loosen up:
This bedroom, designed by Leanne Ford Interiors, features loose linens, an antique floor mirror, and a structural pendant lamp that add a dash of sophistication. If you’re going to go with one color scheme, make sure to use a variety of textures to give the space a more substantial feel. See Parachute Home for high-end contemporary bedding.
Add a Fun Headboard:
Studio Ashby’s Sophie notes that “a wide upholstered headboard brings more fabric into a bedroom while allowing for the integration of eclectics,” It is the headboard in this room that defines the color palette and adds a feeling of formality while also injecting a modern twist that isn’t overly trendy. Project62 is a great place to shop for economical bedroom decor.
Bring in a Canopy:
This bedroom features a shaker-style stove that combines the warmth of a traditional fireplace with the sleek lines of a contemporary appliance. Even though it’s in Maxwell Ryan’s bedroom, this one’s lovely translucent canopy makes it perfect for the summer and winter. Bed, Bath & Beyond is a one-stop-shop for your home decor needs.

Lean Large Artwork:

As an alternative, you might use an image of an interior that mirrors and contrasts your own. Lean it against the wall instead of hanging it, in true boho style. Framebridge is a great resource for bespoke framing and trendy frames.
Pay Attention to Scale:
In this bedroom designed by 2LG Studio, every item has been meticulously selected to work within the space’s unique architectural peculiarities… It’s a simple example, but the narrow nightstand table fits well into the corner and has plenty of drawer space for additional storage. The light patterned wallpaper and lighting of the area can also provide a quirky personality to the space. Visit West Elm for a variety of fashionable bedroom accessories and more.
Fun With Wallpaper:
Fun wallpaper is a simple way to add character to a room without consuming valuable floor space. This one stands out against the room’s more standard features in a bedroom designed by Martyn Lawrence Bullard. Of course, a bedroom wouldn’t be complete without well-organized storage. With a lot of storage, this dresser would be ideal. Urban Outfitters has a variety of removable wallpapers that are fun to look at.
Look At Your Walls:
If this Danielle Colding-designed bedroom inspires you, match your upholstered headboard to the color of the walls. Rather than drawing attention to itself, the studded border on this wallpaper becomes a seamless part of the beige background. More fashionable bedroom accessories may be found at Jungalow.
