  • It’s the first room you see when you wake up and the last room you see to lull you to sleep. The bedroom is an important room when it comes to design and treating yourself! But it’s often the room that gets bottom-of-the-list priority when it comes to crafting your cozy cottage. If you need any excuse to bump that to the top of the to-do list, consider this: more than a third of adults in our country don’t get nearly close enough to the recommended seven hours of sleep each night. This can lead to a decrease in productivity, clarity and creative thinking. So stop neglecting your own bedroom and start treating it as the recharging station you deserve.

    These examples not only capture a range of styles moods, each one has decorating principle that you can apply to your own personal taste. Scroll through and start getting inspired!

  • Suited For Small Spaces

    Proof that you don’t need a large room to feel completely luxurious? Between the cozy olive tone walls, the overstuffed pillows and ample bedding, this master bedroom makes up in elegance what it may lack in space. To top it off, a gilt starburst mirror reflects extra light into the space and adds a crown of sophistication on the focal wall.

    ​Don’t let your small room limit how your furnishings and textiles pamper you. You can go large scale with your pieces as long as you balance your elements. By putting art on the sidewalls, this homeowner draws the eye around the room and doesn’t let the large bed overpower the room.

  • Colorful Cozy Modern Country

    For designer Kate Spain, your bedrooms are a place to express yourself through color. Bedding, she says is the best way to not only experiment, but use color in a way that you can change up easily. “For me with this space, it’s about combining invigorating colors and patterns with lush textures that visually unify the space.”

    She created this setting inspired by the outdoors. “Garden trellises and seaside climbing roses were the inspiration for the colors and patterns I hand-drew in this bedding set,’ she says. “The bedroom is where we begin and end each day, so it’s an important space to feel good in. Surround yourself with things you love to define your bedroom’s style in a personal, meaningful way. No matter what your personal style, the bedroom should be an uncluttered, harmonious space reserved for your rejuvenation and dreams.” For more on Kate Spain bedding and designs, visit katespain.com.

  • A Breath of Fresh Style

    What’s more relaxing than a bedroom that feels light as a cloud? A light, mostly white, color
    scheme offset by a touch of pale blue gives designer Anne Collard’s master bedroom its dreamy feel. Wide board and batten walls add dimension and keep the room from feeling flat or sparse. Anne also went for sumptuous textures like velvet, Matelassé and generous ruffles to add a sense of unfussy luxury. To enhance the ethereal mood for your bed and windows, choose linens that billow and reach to the ground.

  • Chic Retreat

    In a large space, go for grand by layering your room arrangement. Amp up the coziness of a big four-poster bed with the addition of fabric panels that make your bed truly feel like a room within a room. Natural rustic textures with the bamboo roll-up shades, bamboo side tables and antique wood finishes add a collected cottage appeal. Rich linens and a zebra-print rug add bold style to this coastal-inspired décor.

  • Let the Architecture Do the Talking

    In this attic-turned bedroom conversion in Seattle, designer Matthew Craig knew that the true focal point was in the lofty ceiling. He painted the window wall a soothing grey and chose a modern pendant light and a pretty floral curtain to further draw the eye to the striking design. The best part? By paring down the elements and keeping the furnishings and accents simple? You create a soothing and calm energy—and that’s the perfect way to start and end the day.
