How to Accessorise Your Bedroom

Your bedroom was probably the first room you ever helped decorate, and while your style might not be princesses and superheroes anymore, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a theme. Create the ultimate bedroom sanctuary by adding textiles and décor to your space. The first thing you need is the hardware – a statement bed, a chair if possible, creative storage at the foot of the bed and a bedside table. Whatever your master plan, these design ideas will add style to your master bedroom.

Accent Colours

Even if you want a subdued colour scheme in your bedroom, add a splash of colour, and you’ve got instant style. Choose warm or cool shades for the base parts of your room, such as the walls and furniture, then choose a complementing or contrasting colour and work it as a theme. Metallic tones like copper and brass make stunning accents to an array of themes and are frequently used to embellish bedding, textiles, lighting, and décor. For a minimalist splash of colour, buy a reversible duvet cover, add turn down the top slightly when you make the bed.

Layers & Textures

Add layers to your bed with throws, blankets and bed runner. You might not want them in the summer, but a bedspread provides an instant update for autumn and adds glamour and cosiness come winter. Another aspect of your layers is texturing. Try plush, velvet and wool in bold geometrics or simple herringbone for traditional depth and style.

Chic Geometric Duvet Bedroom


As with throws and blankets, cushions offer texture and comfort. Plump for cushions in metallic, plush and velvet finishes to emphasise simple cotton duvet covers. The biggest question on cushions isn’t what colour or fabric, but how many? No one wants to spend ten minutes trying to locate the actual pillows, so go somewhere between two and six cushions, depending on the size of your bed. Read our inspirational scatter cushion styling tips for more guidance.

Wall Lights

Attaching wall lights frees up bedside table space and reduces clutter. Offset them from the bed slightly – you don’t want to bang your head sitting up. If you don’t like wall lights, pick a decorative table lamp to place on either side of the bed, as there’s nothing worse than having to get out of bed to turn off/on the main lights.

Mirrors & Art

Mirrors are functional in a bedroom, of course, but they can also be decoratively stylish with ornate borders or modern all-glass designs. Add to the minimalist décor and soft furnishings of your bedroom with a piece of eye-catching wall art. If your bedroom theme is bright and bold from start to finish, then go statement. Choose art that inspires you, and you want to wake up to every day.


And finally, the floor. No one wants to step out of bed onto a cold, hard floor, and even if you have carpets, laying a rug adds style, texture and layers all in one! Have a runner or small faux fur mat on each side of the bed and a unifying circular rug, perhaps on the floor at the end of the bed.

And, as all sleep experts say, bedrooms should be tech-free, so avoid putting a television in the room. But it doesn’t have to be entertainment free, so consider a radio.

You can always fill the space with your to-read books or some notepads for drawing or journaling too. For more bedroom ideas, check our guide on transforming it into a total sanctuary.
