You want everything in your bedroom to exude comfort, and the color palette is no exception. Whether you're a fan of warm or cool shades, pick colors that you naturally gravitate toward and give you a sense of calm. This home in Mexico opted for organic colors like ocean blue and deep brown. The statement wall is painted with Patagonia by Comex and the Eames chair and ottoman are by Herman Miller.


A common sight in a bedroom is one large art print sitting squarely above the headboard. An eye-catching wall hanging such as this gives prominence to the bed, creating an important focal point in the room. However, above-the-headboard art doesn't have to be a single large piece. When grouped together in similar or cohesive frames, a collection of photographs (nature scenes or family snapshots) or smaller works of art also draws the eye to the bed.
Designer Lee F. Mindel isn't afraid of color, and this modern Miami Beach getaway is proof. In the guest bedroom, which Mindel brought to life with Benjamin Moore’s Cool Aqua, the headboard in a Link Textiles fabric matches the wall panels. The bed is dressed in custom linens by E. Braun & Co. The Oluce lamps are from MSK Illuminations, and the nightstands are from Design Within Reach.

When it came to designing an apartment in a TriBeCa skyscraper, Richard Mishaan aimed for a sense of adventure. From stimulating hues to rich textures, there's no shortage of visual interest throughout the space, especially in the master bedroom. The design scheme features a custom master bed and sofa from Mishaan’s line for Theodore Alexander—both in a Maharam mohair. The bed linens are by Matouk, the armchairs are by Holly Hunt, and the Plexiglas cocktail table is by Charly Bounan. The brass pendants are by Roll & Hill, and the Willy Rizzo floor lamp is from Flair Home Collection.

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.
Furnishing your teenage bedroom is a must but when it comes to furniture, you don't have to spend a lot to get a lot. I've found that vintage furniture is often better quality than new and can be found for super-cheap at estate sales and flea markets. If you have minimal DIY skills, with a little paint, almost any old piece of furniture can be made into something new. If you prefer new, there are great places to find affordable furniture for teenage bedrooms.
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. If you don't have exposed brick or stone walls, look for furniture and decor items that feature natural materials. Then warm things up with layers of cozy linens.
I love this product! I purchased it, because we have a really tall wall on our staircase. That wall has been very empty and needing something to make it look more inviting. I ordered this product on July 14, and received it July 28. I was impressed immediately by the thickness of the decal it does not look like a sticker, but more like a carving that has been placed on the wall. Secondly the shine and smoothness of the pieces is amazing quality, and gives a nice look to the overall appearance. It should be noted that the decal is several hundred pieces, but it comes with a template to and numbered pieces to show you where to pace them. I did however go a little rogue and made my own design after I made the initial tree. The decal is made to create more of a square look ... full review
It doesn't have to be an entire étagère-full, but a cluster of pieces that make you smile will go a long way in making a bedroom feel just right, as with this bedroom in a Greenwich Village penthouse, featuring antique French linens, a 19th-century Indian lantern, and plenty of paintings collected over the years. Bonus: This is also a great way to incorporate pieces you've acquired over time but can't quite figure out where to put them.
However, most parents don't have the funds to lavishly decorate their child's bedroom, nor should you spend your hard-earned cash on furniture, bedding and decor that has inflated mark-ups and little long-lasting value. Truth is, you can create a fabulous room for your teen without going broke in the process - or even without spending much money at all.
Piling on layers of various patterns and textures in a mix of different brown and cream colors is the trick that makes this homey bedroom by Locati Architects one of our favorite examples ever. The reclaimed wood wall anchors the space while print fabrics in contrasting patterns covering the walls, window, headboard, and pillows add both visual interest and depth. 
Hello, you asked for the color of paint that is used on on the bedroom walls with the bedding thats gray & yellow. I loved that color also but didn’t know the name of it. So I printed that photo out & brought it into “Home Depo” where they was able to mix some paints togeather to get that exzact color in the photo. I painted my bedroom with it & it looks GRATE & right on to the color in that photo.

Popular and fun, wall decals let you inject personality into your bedroom. You can choose from hundreds of designs, including symbols, patterns, and quotes, or you can have a custom decal made. They stick to the wall, which makes them an easy DIY project. Choose lots of small shapes to hang top-to-bottom on a wall, creating an all-over design. Or, pick one large decal to create impact behind the bed or around a window.
