A mix of gray-and-white patterns comes together to form a youthful yet stylish kids' bedroom. Sunny yellow trunks at the end of each bed bring color to the room and add storage. The bright pops of color on the accessories and throw pillows keep the room kid-friendly and fun.
Bright apple green walls bring energy into this bedroom. White furniture and trimwork balance the bright green. Hints of pink bring another color into the picture, and bedding sporting all the colors in the room ties the look together.
Both Ends of the Spectrum
Subtle and striking play the balance game in this bedroom. A white tone-on-tone Greek key pattern on the wallpaper adds interest without being loud. Furniture with strong lines and minimal ornamentation maintains the bold-reserved balance. Two shades of purple -- timid lavender and forthright plum -- keep the color scheme simple, yet the contrast adds a spark to the tone.
A mostly neutral bedroom color palette is brought to life with a subtle dose of red on the pillows. Contrasting textures add personality to the serene room. The woven rug and basket warm up the sleek metallic nightstand and the smooth finish of the bed frame.
Top Notch Twins
In a bedroom, twin beds supply symmetry and grace, particularly when dressed up in elegant patterns and rich colors. Bead board paneling dresses up the walls, as do the graceful bed skirts, which help to define the profile of the beds. A muted red pattern of medallions covers the linens; the color makes an appearance in the stripes as well as the piping on the headboard and the ribbon on the window treatments.
Whitewashed beaded board walls lend rustic appeal to this bedroom. The ceiling treatment adds subtle warmth, which is echoed by the bedframe and other furnishings. A sprinkling of blue fabrics provides a pop of needed color.
Floral patterns and soft pastels drench this bedroom with feminine flair. A stand-in headboard made from decorative shelving brackets and a swath of drapery fabric creates a pretty focal point. The various patterns on the bedding work well together because they're all relatively similar in scale.
Padded silk wall panels embroidered with a dainty floral pattern create luxurious appeal in this master bedroom. The canopy bed lends undeniable drama, but its neutral color ensures all eyes stay on the accent wall. Plush fabrics throughout the room envelop the space with comfort.
In this bedroom, an all-white color scheme creates a relaxing and calm environment. A mirror hung above the bed and a mirrored nightstand reflect light and help the space feel larger. Patterned black-and-white throw pillows on the bed add a splash of contrast.
Texture Is King
Wooden ceiling beams add contrast to this nearly all-white bedroom. An array of textures -- from the wide-plank wood walls to the rattan bed frame and woven area rug -- add dimension to the neutral color scheme.
What a Pair
A pair of modern-style iron beds create a unique juxtaposition to the more rustic, country elements in this shared bedroom. The woven area rug under the beds helps the room feel grounded and adds texture underfoot. The wicker benches at the foot of each bed make a nod to the home's breezy location.
The white walls look anything but dull in this bedroom, where strips of paneling add texture and dimension to the neutral scheme. The bed frame and nightstand are also painted white, but the pastel blue bed linens and nightstand accessories provide a hint of color.
Spice Up White
This all-white bedroom looks anything but cold thanks to subtle floral patterns and a variety of flirty fabrics. The large, floral-print area rug helps to ground the room. Ruffles on the bedding spice up the would-be-ordinary white comforter and bed skirt.
The Benefits of Texture
A tone-on-tone gray color scheme looks anything but dull in this bedroom seating area, thanks to a variety of textures. The chair features a rough linen upholstery, while the ottoman is covered with a nubby elevated pattern. The black-and-white draperies add subtle contrast without weighing down the light and airy space.
Consistency Is Key
Whitewashed furnishings give this bedroom a relaxed and lived-in look. The bed frame, wicker chair, and above-the-headboard mirror are all the same color and finish, helping the room look cohesive. Splashes of warm browns and golds ensure that the cool palette doesn't look stark and cold.
The Perfect Accents
Pretty blue draperies frame the windows and add color to this white bedroom. The white-painted floor and the textured bed linens ensure the neutral color scheme looks anything but one-note.
Navy fabrics and red accents add depth and warmth to this bedroom. The Oriental rug in the center of the room grounds the space and ties together the color scheme.
A canopy bed in the center of this bedroom creates drama. The bed's headboard is upholstered with soft blue velvet, which blends well with the statement-making canopy. A mirrored dresser reflects light and sparkle throughout the room.
Overscale floral wallpaper is a bold yet playful choice and sets the style for this cheery bedroom. The white sculptural headboard and floor lamp balance the pattern. Additional white, on the bed linens and wing-back chair, along with color, on the pillows and blankets, mimic the palette of the wallpaper for an overall look that's cohesive, not over the top.
In this bedroom, a look-at-me color scheme of lime green and robin's-egg blue conveys youthful energy. An eclectic mix of furnishings -- such as the wicker nightstand and trio of bird prints above the headboard -- creates a relaxed and casual vibe.
The white-painted walls and ceiling emphasize the height of this sunny bedroom. The four-poster and window treatments also draw the eye upward, while a stenciled floor treatment adds subtle interest underfoot.
