If you’re looking to create a sophisticated bedroom retreat for your winter staycation, allow up to show you the top three bedroom looks we are all over right now. While different in style and feeling, all three spaces will offer you a calm, resting environment, allowing you to unwind and regroup at the end of each day.
Hello Darkness My Old Friend
Boy oh boy do we love the mood created by a dark bedroom setting. To get the design impact you are after with this look, we strongly recommend painting ALL the walls in the room your chosen colour, as well as the doors, the trim and any built-in units. This tone-on-tone look approach is what elevates the style of the bedroom from average to chic and luxurious. Using only one dark feature wall in a bedroom simply won’ get you the look you are after.
You can also take it a step further by painting the ceiling a dark shade if you wish, making the space truly cosy and welcoming. But this is purely preferential. A white ceiling won’t ruin the look at all. You can also consider painting the trim, doors and ceiling and shade darker than the walls, if you are a looking for a little contrast from the walls, but again
With this style we also like to keep wood tones darker and richer and we love brass accents for a luxe effect. When it comes to dressing the room, you can go two ways. The lower the contrast, the moodier and more dreamy the room will feel – so basically keeping the bedding and textiles tone on tone with the wall colour. Otherwise, you can bring white and off-white textiles for a brighter look and more contrast in the room.

The Classic White
There is a reason this style is a classic when it comes to designing your bedroom. When it comes to designing a restful refuge, nothing is quite as soothing as a white bedroom. Whether this includes gravitating towards warmer ivory shades or cooler light greys, you have endless options to put your own stamp and personality onto the space – no white bedroom is alike!
White bedrooms are especially ideal if you are looking to draw attention to the architecture of the space, or the view outside. Serene neutrals draw the eye outside, allowing the surroundings to shine through.
An all white palette allows you to work across a number of different styles. Bring in an upholstered headboard and antique pieces for a classic style. Use tonal accents and wood materials for a contemporary look and feel.
Less is more, especially in a white bedroom. A simple colour scheme and curated approach will result in a minimalist bedroom that is laidback but polished in style.
The key to pulling it all together? Making sure the room is full of texture and different layers, injecting warmth and creating an inviting ambiance.

Natural All The Way
In a departure from the classic white, we love bedrooms created in soothing earthy tones. Think of saturated beige, honey and sand colours. These subtle tones create a sophisticated retreat.
Working with layered minimalist tone-on-tone concepts, the fine line between blah and wow resides in carefully styled layers of texture. Black accents are the perfect compliment to keep the style chic and contemporary.
