6 White Bedroom Ideas that are Easy to Copy

So you’re looking for white bedroom ideas.

I have six great tips that will help you create, style and decorate your own white bedroom and make it Instagram worthy!

1.Paint Your Bedroom White

Seems obvious right? Well make sure you do it properly. I had to paint my walls white 3 times before the deep purple underneath would stop showing. It may even be worth painting a primer (base) first and then choose an off-white shade that you like over the top. I did that for my bedroom, which you can take a peek here >>>ย bedroom redecoration part 2.

2. Buy White Furniture & Accessories

It doesn’t have to cost a fortune but if you’re going for an ‘all white’ look it’s worth investing in matching furniture and accessories. Don’t take the easy way out though, think about the different shades of white and materials too. It’s so much more effective when you play with these in your white interior. Here’s my list of ideas:

  • White bookshelf, bed frame, chest of drawers and/or side table
  • Photo frames
  • Vases
  • Baskets
  • Lamp/s
  • Books
  • Bed Linen
  • Throws and cushions
  • Perfume
  • Candles
  • White Flowers/tulips
  • Mirror

You get the idea! The list can go on so go and have some fun with white accessories and furniture ๐Ÿ™‚

3. Think Scandinavian Interiors

Scandinavian interiors are so popular these days and it’s not surprising. The beautiful soft grey shades partnered with chicย white flooring in a white bedroom create a peaceful and relaxing room. When you have a white bedroom don’t be afraid to add muted tones such as grey and fawn brown hues.

4. ย Go Rustic with Natural Materials

Beautiful wooden centrepieces, such as this wood headboard above, can really add to the serenity of a white bedroom. Use the wooden natural patterns to make contrast and add interest to the room.

5. Energise the Room with Plants

Whether it’s fresh flowers or potted plants, they won’t only help you filter the airย but make your room always look energised and fresh. Why not test this idea out and create a whole botanical window sill or create a sophisticated room by adding roses to your bedside table.

6. Add a Pop of Colour

Although you might have a white bedroom, don’t be afraid to add a bit of colour here and there. The colour will stand out in a white room and easily add interest as well as personality. After all, your bedroom is an extension of you so don’t be afraid to express yourself – even if it’s a couple of brightly coloured cushions ๐Ÿ™‚

The best white bedrooms, the way they’re styled and decorated, have a mix of the tips I’ve mentioned above and you may have noticed that a lot of the photos do exactly that. Play around with a couple or a few of the white bedroom ideas above and let me know what you think via the comments below!

    This has reminded me that I need to finish my bedroom! It’s white too but the walls are still bare as I wasn’t sure what to do about pictures. I think I’ll copy the picture you posted with the cluster of white frames. Lovely.

      Haha, true but they do grow up quick I’m so maybe sooner than you think. Either than or put it in a place out of reach!

    I am obsessed with Scandinavian interiors, there are so many amazing things to learn from how everything is placed, stacked or matched x

    Gorgeous. I love white interiors, it just looks so clean and relaxing doesn’t it? Sadly with four children nothing stays white for long in our house!!

      You’re not alone, I’ve heard that this might be the case with a growing family hehe. It’s nice but maybe not practical just yet, right? Soon ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I adore the rustic look, I live in a nearly 200 year old cottage so that look is perfect! I really like the stuff from the HoF press event too xx

      Alina

      Wow that’s awesome. I bet you’ve got some real character in that property too. I agree a rustic look would suit a cottage perfectly ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m moving really soon so I’ve decided to turn my bedroom all white and black. I hope I won’t be bothered too soon though. But it’s something similar of what you’re showing! <3

      How exciting! Good luck with the move and decorating ๐Ÿ™‚
