With Instagram becoming an amazing source of interior inspiration, more and more of you are creating home accounts and getting stuck in with a rapidly growing community of interior lovers.
But how do you get that Insta-worthy bedroom shot without spending thousands on re-decorating (or having enough followers to get everything gifted to you)? We’ve got a few tips and inspiration from some of our amazing customers, plus some insider secrets from our Stylist to help you create that Insta-worthy bedroom.
Chic and Subtle
The first style we’re looking at is super easy to achieve and requires little more than a simple velvet bed and a muted feature wall.
Choosing a great quality headboard with subtle detailing is the key to creating a calming bedroom interior. Our Turin and Paolo Beds both have super soft velvet upholstery and subtle yet very effective details.
The Turin has a neat pipe around the headboard, while the Paolo has a subtle stitch detail and gentle wings to create a cosy cocoon feel.
The soft feather grey velvet of both the Turin and Paolo work so well against muted wall colours due to its warmer undertones. Choose a colour with a slight grey tint to create that calming and serene atmosphere.
When styling a bedroom like this, choose natural woods or stick to simple white furniture so as to not distract from your statement wall and super soft bed. Try to avoid too many clashing textures- a chunky throw at the end of the bed will help soften the look, but stick to one or two textures to keep your space calm.
Stylists Top Tip: When creating a calming bedroom, always choose warmer tones and stick to a very simple colour palette. Avoid using too many different colours as this can create a visually stimulating space, which is not ideal for a bedroom.

Mid-century styled spaces are still huge in the world of interiors, with new twists always appearing to create a more modern look. This gorgeous bedroom from @appleton2plus_morrishomes has just the right amount of mid-century styling with the side tables and lamps, while the Amalfi bed in Peacock brings that modern twist.
You can be more playful with prints and textures in a mid century style home. Pair geometrics with tribal prints to really mix things up. Remember to keep your prints focused to one area, and let the design of your furniture do the rest of the talking.

Maximalism is becoming more and more popular in our homes, with many of us seeking out ways to make our homes more personal. (Find out more about maximalist style here). However, use a toned down version of maximalism in your bedroom to ensure this remains a calming and relaxing zone.
@lifeatno.15 has perfected a subtle maximalist look but pairing an oversized floral mural wallpaper with a super soft and silky velvet bed.
By choosing wallpaper in a bold print but with harmonious colours creates a calming vibe while remaining a true style statement. For an extra element to your maximalist style, choose a larger bed to make more of a design statement.
Stylist Top Tip: Pick out one or two colours from a bold wallpaper to use throughout the room. The colours you choose here will greatly affect the overall style. For example, @lifeatno.15 has pulled out the blush pink and grey to create a soft, feminine look. However, if she had chosen the subtle shades of cream and green this look overall would be much more muted and minimal.
