No matter how bold you want to go, how large your space is, or what your design preference is, we've got plenty of bedroom ideas to inspire you.

Add A Fun Headboard

"A wide upholstered headboard brings more fabric into a bedroom, while enabling the integration of eclectics," says Sophie of Studio Ashby. In this bedroom in particular, the bedroom speaks to the color scheme and sense of formality while also asserting a modern twist that doesn't feel overly trendy.

Loosen Things Up

When sticking to one neutral color family, be sure to introduce plenty of varying textures for a more robust look. Loose linens make for an effortlessly chic bed situation while the antique floor mirror and structural pendant light dress things up.

Lean Large Artwork

We love how this bedroom boasts a bohemian feel despite the statement piece: That large-scale photograph of a traditional yellow bedroom, making it a yellow bedroom within a yellow bedroom.For a similar look, opt for a high-impact photograph of an interior that both reflects and juxtaposes your own space. And in true bohemian fashion, simply lean it against the wall instead of hanging it.

Bring In a Canopy

A shaker style stove, like the one in this bedroom, reflects the coziness of a classic fireplace with a sleek, modern design. And while this one in Maxwell Ryan's bedroom feels nice and wintery, the dreamy sheer canopy ensures that it'll also feel appropriate during the summer.

Pay Attention to Scale

As you can see in this bedroom designed by 2LG Studio, each item is carefully chosen to work within the architectural quirks of the space. For example, the narrow bedroom table fits into the little nook perfectly, and since it's on the slimmer side, they made sure it offered plenty of drawer space for extra storage. The light patterned wallpaper, aside from brightening the room, can also introduce a fun personality.

Have Fun With Wallpaper

Fun wallpaper is an easy way to add personality without taking up any precious surface space. We love how this one in a Martyn Lawrence Bullard-designed bedroom contrasts with the more traditional elements in this room. And of course, smart storage is essential in a bedroom. A spacious dresser like this one is a great option.

Choose Bold Lighting

"The headboard's muted gray wool mix balances the impact of the cushions and the throw, and the low profile allows for sizeable artwork above the bed," Sophie of Studio Ashby tells us. Putting one large-scale piece of artwork above the bed is a great alternative to a gallery wall and bold, modern lighting will bring just a punch of modern style.

Designed by Arent & Pyke, this beach house bedroom plays up the coastal locale with casual pieces like a jute rug, wooden side table, playful striped pillows, and ocean photography.

Create a Cocoon

There's a certain ethereal feel to attics because of the unique architectural lines. If you have an a-frame or sloped ceiling, embrace that dreamy vibe with romantic materials and light colors. The way the light pours into this room is just divine—we'd never want to leave this little cocoon. Decorate with loose linens, a netted pendant light, and a vintage area rug for a pop of color.

Get Creative

When space is limited, you'll have to get crafty and choose multi-purpose pieces. For example, this side chair can function as a seat or as a bedside table. Wall sconces help free up surface space, too, without making you forgo a night light.

Layer Textures and Styles

In this master bedroom designed by Charlotte Lucas, layers of rich textures and soft colors contrast with high-impact wall art. The abstract, watercolor-inspired wallpaper marries the two themes and brings the whole space to life. The lesson? Don't be afraid to get eclectic.

To take advantage of vertical space and display your decor out in the open, install a floating shelf. This will help clear up usable space for the essentials. We also love how designed Vanessa Alexander uses found objects as artwork, like this skateboard leaning against the wall.

Repaint Your Walls

Instead of sticking with plain white walls, considering another neutral that adds a subtle yet bold twist. "Responding to an unusual Y-shaped floor plan required a strategy to pull light from all directions to create a range of shifting light experiences: Moody and subtle to the south; bright and open to the east," explain the designers behind Arent & Pyke. For a moodier bedroom that isn't full-on dark, try a steel blue gray like this one. And then lighten things up with colorful linens and keep things streamlined with bright a white ceiling and modern bedside sconce.

In this bedroom designed by Hecker Guthrie, there are so many fun texture moments happening. It inspires us to embrace architectural quirks and existing bones rather than trying to hide them.

Your headboard isn't the only thing that can make a statement on your bed wall. Opt for a low headboard and hang pictures above your bed to mix it up. Built-in lighting will always make things look infinitely more polished, too.
