Every few years, I’m struck by a desperate need to redecorate my bedroom. Sometimes it’s the result of a major life change, and other times I’m simply bit by the decorating bug and cannot be stopped. Either way, there’s nothing like having some good inspo at the ready when the mood strikes. That’s why I’ve rounded up some of my favorite bedroom décor ideas based on a few of the most covetable spaces around.

One of the things that make decorating a bedroom so fun is that at its core, a bedroom must be functional. You then have to infuse your own style into a highly sensible setting—it’s an incredibly creative endeavor. I love stretching my design muscles when trying to figure out the best configuration, lighting, fabrics, and textures for my space, and it’s not always easy. And yet, the homes below manage to feel completely effortless.

Whether you’re looking to upgrade your current bedroom with a few accent pieces or need to overhaul the entire aesthetic, from furniture to paint and bedding, we’ve got you covered with some truly lovely bedroom décor ideas. I have a feeling you just might recognize some of these sweet, cozy, and ultra-chic bedrooms!

Read on for some of our fave bedroom décor ideas:

The Dreamy Boudoir

When our deputy editor, Sacha Strebe redesigned her bedroom, she wanted to infuse the space with soul by layering old-world antiques with aged patina against slick modern surfaces like the custom teak bed. It was also important to both her and her husband that each piece have meaning and add context to the space based on travel or emotional connections like the geometric ceramic vase which was designed by an old friend in Australia.
