Neutral bedroom ideas

Be inspired by these neutral bedroom ideas that will leave your feeling cool, calm and collected. Who says that a neutral bedroom colour palette should stop at beige. Get inspiration by blending sophisticated and versatile hues from white to charcoal grey. Take a look at our 10 inspiring neutral bedroom ideas.

What’s fantastic about working with neutrals is that virtually all tones work together and you can enrich a décor with an imaginative use of textures such as faux-fur, suede and wood. 

Use texture in an imaginative way by adding a feature wall in damask to embossed velvet wallpaper. Why not use your favourite fabric as wallpaper and make this your showstopping visual feature of the bedroom. Add floor-length taupe velvet curtains, oyster satin cushions and grey faux-fur rugs to complete the luxurious feel and look to your bedroom.

A rustic theme is a great choice for neutral bedroom décor. Add dove-grey bedlinen overlaid with checked blankets for a country feel — introduce hints of lace on pillows and cushions. Or for a hotel-style décor, pile up cushions and throws on the bed in clashing muted shades and patterns. Place a footstool at the end of the bed upholstered in natural linen.

A four-poster bed is a real showstopping centrepiece to a neutral bedroom décor and has a lovely romantic style. Recreate the look of a grand four poster by attaching sheer white voile curtains to the wooden rails, it will make you feel like a complete sleeping princess. Keep all bedlinen, walls and furniture in the room a fresh white.

If you have a bay window, make this the feature of the room and create a built-in seating area or place a relaxing neutral-toned armchair or chaise longue by the window and watch the world go by.

For minimalistic chic, keep all aspects of the bedroom white, whether it is a traditional fireplace or modern desk. Add a pop of colour with accessories suh as turquoise cushions or a vase.

Neutral bedroom with flower decoration

The beauty of decorating with neutrals is that virtually all tones work together, from white to beige. This calming bedroom combines several different shades in the bedding, headboard, wall paint, table and floor, yet they all go together perfectly. If you feel like a plain fabric headboard could benefit from a little jazzing up, try pinning or sewing on pretty floral clusters in one corner.
