The bedroom is one of the rooms best suited for a more retro design because usually these details add warmth to the space around them and make the area feel cozy and welcoming. Such a design was chosen by Sasha Bikoff for this beautiful bedroom inside a New York apartment.

Lots of people including us are in love with Victorian homes, specifically with how grand they all and with all the details that set each little thing apart. You can expect a Victorian-style bedroom to have an eye-catching bed with a massive frame and a lots of decorative details on the frame. Another staple of Victorian interior design is the dark color palette. Check out this beautiful bedroom designed by Michelle Dirkse to see how these elements can be translated into a modern space.
It can be difficult to find the right balance in a design that involves lots of different colors, textures and patterns, even more so when the room is small. This lovely bedroom designed by Peter Dunham is a wonderful source of inspiration in this sense. Even though there’s a lot going on here, it all looks and feels harmonious.
Another one of our favorite bedrooms was designed by Trilbey Gordon and has a pretty simple and plain look, at least at first sight. However, the more you look at it the more you realize it’s actually not simple or bland, it’s actually filled with all sorts of details. The color palette itself is a lovely blend of neutrals with pale green accents. The overall design is sophisticated and elegant.
Interior designer Robert Kime manages to somehow bring together the past and the present and to combine them into these amazing spaces that are magnificent in a very unique way. In this case it’s as if an old historical bedroom has been cleaned up and brought into the modern world. The bed is obviously the centerpiece here but there’s a lot more to take in and discover throughout the entire room.
This is actually one of the bedrooms inside the Trematon Castle which was built in the 14th century, as you might be able to tell by how busy the design is. The color palette is quite unified but there are a lot of different patterns that distract the eye and don’t really allow it to focus on one thing in particular.
Some prefer a more simple sort of design for area like the bedroom, something that’s soothing and relaxing. With that in mind, check out this beautiful bedroom designed by Isabelle Stanislas. It has a monochrome palette based on light and soft neutrals and what really stands out is the use of natural and organic materials, textures and finishes.
Projects like the one done by Tom Mark Henry are very inspiring. The idea in this case was to take an old existing house, strip it down to its stone walls and start fresh with a new design. Exposed stone was used strategically in areas like this bedroom in combination with a minimalist black and white color palette in order to add depth, style and character to the room.
Grays are a good fit for a space like the bedroom because they’re soft and simple and versatile. A nice and simple way to avoid making the room seem too simple or boring is by incorporating different types of finishes and textures. In this lovely bedroom designed by Joanna Lavén all the grays add a moody vibe, especially emphasized by the large chandelier hanging from the ceiling.
It’s nice to base the design of a room on the base features that make it special. For example, this bedroom designed by Katie Martinez has a wall of windows which is beautifully decorated by light and patterned curtains. The room as a whole looks and feels very breezy, relaxing and inviting and that’s partially thanks to all the natural sunlight and the openness of the decor.
Dark colors can also look amazing in bedrooms. In fact, some designers prefer them. A lovely example in this gorgeous bedroom by Tali Roth Interior Design which plays with contrasting nuances like white and dark blue. This gives the space a clean and chic appearance and also highlights certain elements and allows others to blend in more easily.
This lovely Parisian apartment definitely has a lot of charm and the bedroom in particular looks very chic. It features a nice mix of minimalist modern furniture and retro accent pieces and decorations. Its walls are also filled with artwork for an added touch of color and an artistic vibe that really suits this whole place.
Neutrals usually work best for guest bedrooms because they’re more versatile than other colors. It can be a good idea to avoid adding too many personal touches to this space although that shouldn’t mean an austere design without any details or character. This stylish guest bedroom designed by Michael Del Piero is a great example to follow.
For some, a modern bedroom can come across as just a bit too clean and with not enough charm. By adding a few vintage decorations or furniture accents or something as simple as a wooden beam across the ceiling with a weathered look the balance can be restored. That’s just what makes this particular bedroom designed by Handelsmann + Khaw so charming and interesting in the first place.
There’s no need to fill a room with lots of furniture and decorations for it to look beautiful or to feel inviting. Often there’s beauty in simplicity which is quite important given that bedrooms can often be small in size. We really love this design by studio Framework and in particular the neutral and almost moody color palette. Still, the room looks and feels bright, airy and fresh.
When renovating or remodeling a bedroom it’s easy to be tempted to erase the past and create something completely fresh and new.

Valentin can hopefully inspire you.
Originality is always important and when designing or decorating a bedroom that can be translated into various decorations and details that reflect one’s own unique style.
