20 Real-Life Colorful Bedrooms

Whether you want a bright, cheery bedroom or a simple, calm escape, these real-life bedrooms from Better Homes and Gardens have it all. Get color inspiration from these spaces for your own perfect retreat. 

 Daring & Fun
Bold in color and pattern, bright wallpapered walls add glamour and playfulness to this bedroom. Brown and white accents on the bedding and drapes keep the wallpaper from overwhelming the space.

 Monochromatic Magnificence 
Create a soothing yet bold look with a monochromatic color scheme. A cream floor rug and bedding are the perfect complement for a sophisticated gray-blue wall colour. Blue hues create a sense of calm, making this bedroom a peaceful oasis to escape to at night.

Pops of Sunshine 
Jazz up a dark room with a bright yellow accent colour. The repetition of black-and-white patterned prints gets a breath of fresh air thanks to a yellow blanket and throw pillows. When you tire of the color scheme, swap the accessories with a new colour for an instant makeover.

 Art Act
Let a piece of art set the color scheme. A modern painting with different hues will set the tone for the bedroom. Make sure the piece you choose lets your personality shine through. 
Simple Stripes
A bright green-and-white striped floor rug kicks up the style in this bedroom. The stripe motif continues on the wall, where white molding separates a section of light green and dark green to create a simple yet beautiful look.
Cover Your Head(board) 
A upholstered headboard is the perfect standout statement in the bedroom. The deep yellow fabric with an abstract sunflower print adds color and personality to the simple bedroom. Light blue walls and throw pillows complete the look.

Get Inspired 
Start with a neutral palette and find ways to bring in colour through bedding and accessories. Splashes of apple green in a white room make it feel vibrant and alive. A montage of framed pictures and paintings to add a unique, personal touch to the room. 
Trendy Metallic 
Use a metallic color to dress up an ordinary bedroom. The combination of matte blue-gray walls and the metallic blue-gray bed skirt, wall art, and bedding details creates an unforgettable look. Add silver accessories to play up the metallic pieces.

Whimsical Fun
A traditional paisley wallpaper goes ultramodern when it is reproduced to a larger scale. A bright-green textured blanket adds an extra sense of dimension to the bedding and a punch of fun to the elegant bedroom.
