Have you ever wondered why you sleep so well on vacation? Of course, being away from home and at work is part of it, but another important factor is the relaxing magic of a quiet hotel room. At the heart of a high-end room is a luxurious bed, usually covered in soft, luscious white beds. And if white linens make a room quiet and leave you off-duty, how about a completely white room?
Some may dismiss a white bedroom as too minimal or boring. It’s true that white bedrooms lack the drama of a space full of colors and patterns, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have a richly layered, impactful design. (We’d also argue that an all-white bedroom is a bold choice, and it takes a pretty confident person to choose such a bright, easy-to-stain shade.)
Whether you want a bespoke and elegant bedroom or a versatile and funky bedroom, white can be your preferred color palette. Be inspired by these beautiful spaces and find out how you can create a peaceful white bedroom yourself.
At first glance, this brilliant room looks like solid white. On closer inspection, however, you can see the light gray grid pattern on the wallpaper and another light print on the pillows. Break up the monotony of a pure white room with subtle prints like these or with details like the nail head trim on the padded headboard.

Decorating a white bedroom doesn’t mean just choosing one shade and sticking to it throughout the room. Mixing hues like pure white and winter white like in this bedroom gives the room a new dimension. Drape a large, comfy blanket like this knitted throw over the foot of the bed to add texture.

This space shatters the illusion that all-white bedrooms are primitive and neat. A duvet cover with pom pom trim sets a playful tone, and wafer-thin white curtains filter the sunshine in the light-flooded room. An ivory colored rug with a graphic print sums up the look.
There’s a reason art galleries paint their walls white: they let the pieces in their exhibits glow. You can achieve the same effect in your bedroom. In this room, for example, the walls, upholstered headboard, and bed linen are all the same white, which brings the focus to the eye-catching pair of modern mid-century desk lamps and the wooden bench at the foot of the bed.

Decorating with natural materials gives an earthy feel. The reclaimed wood headboard is the centerpiece of this bedroom, and linen bedding adds texture to the room. A row of LED lights and a vase of daisies on the bedside table are gorgeous details. The result is a woody, cabin-like feel.

A key piece
It’s easy to highlight a piece of wall art in a snow white room like this bedroom. Two structured throws and a basket make the room feel multilayered.

A statement mirror and metallic table lamps reflect the light and maximize the sunshine through the large windows next to the bed. If your bedroom isn’t getting a lot of sun, take a lesson from that room and use mirrors and metallic accent pieces to add in the natural light.
