See how to bring together bedroom furniture, bedding, wall color, and accessories to create the perfect space you'll love.

Consider Comfort : Leap into a beautifully dressed bed, and you'll land squarely in the lap of luxury. Think of a bedstead as a canvas and the linens and pillows as your brushstrokes. Here, silvery gray walls and a velvet-upholstered headboard inspire this marvelous medley of pictorial, animal print, quilted, and patterned pillows showcased on top of a white sheet, turned over a charcoal gray coverlet. Asparagus green touches energize the monochromatic scheme.

Master Bedroom Fireplace : If you're remodeling, install a gas-fueled or wood burning fireplace in a way that allows you to enjoy flickering flames when you're under the sheets, seated in a comfy chair, or soaking in the tub. Though any fireplace is a welcome master bedroom addition, consider setting a hearth near eye-level so it can be seen from the bedroom's every corner and from the adjoining bathroom.

Create Collected Appeal : Every master bedroom should reflect the tastes, lifestyles, and travels of those who occupy the space. So forget matchy matchy masters; bring in things you've gathered over the years to create a haven that fits both of your styles. Make the composition cohesive by repeating metal and wood finishes, colors, and fabric patterns; introduce a variety of shimmering, plush, and woven textiles to keep interest and comfort levels high.

Think Pretty and Practical : Tuck a vintage writing desk or dressing table next to your bed to gain benefits aplenty. Choose a furniture piece that supplies a graceful silhouette, generous storage, and a top that accommodates beauty potions, a bedside lamp, and chic accessories. Move in a stylish seat and a shaggy rug to finely finish your just-for-me preparation station.

Bedroom Storage : Got a yen for streamlined bedrooms equipped with generous storage and display space? Like the idea of an alcove bed? You can have both when you erect a three-sided storage system that protrudes from a wall and creates a central niche. Match the unit's wood and/or finish with the room's doors and woodwork; boost the fabulous factor by upholstering the alcove's back wall with ultra-suede or leather squares.

Color for Master Bedrooms : Hot pink is likely the first thing you notice in this master bedroom. But look a little deeper and you'll see how secondary design elements contribute to the room's overall appeal. Neutral backdrops, including the checked wallpaper, a striped area rug, textural upholstery fabrics, and white bedding, let pinks stand out without disrupting the peace.

Perfectly Blend : Include elements from diverse decorating styles to fashion personality-plus master retreats. Turn the tide on traditional designs by starting with classic bedsteads and drapery panels and adding in fanciful forms like rock-crystal lamp bases and a spiraling glass chandelier. Keep an eye out for progressive pieces like the bench at the end of the bed: The conventional seat takes a fashion-forward step thanks to its leather upholstery and acrylic plastic legs.

Cultivate Calm : Pick a peaceable palette and refined furnishings to fashion a perennially serene scene. Start with an analogous scheme (neighboring hues on the color wheel), such as blue and green. Quietly distribute the soothing shades as wallpaper on an accent wall, painted furniture finishes, and softly colored textiles. Layer in gilded patinas and silvery chandeliers to give the understated design a glamorous lift.

Take a Seat : Sitting areas, whether a hearthside conversation grouping, an adjacent outdoor room, or a reading chair tucked into a corner, turn a bedroom into an all-inclusive getaway. Include stylish upholstered chairs, oversize ottomans, and a coffee or end table for holding books, drinks, and laptop computers or tablets. If possible, anchor the grouping with a rug to immediately define the sitting area and separate it from the sleeping space.

Have a Blast : Create a master bedroom that instigates smiles morning, noon, and night. Fashion a free-thinking boudoir using objects that are both unexpected and utilitarian. Move in woolly ottomans to serve as end-of-the bed benches and hang an attention-grabbing fixture to draw the eye high. Opt for monochromatic backdrops (such as pale pink walls and draperies) that cede center stage to your fab finds.

Relax in Style : Set aside a cozy spot for curling up with bestsellers, magazines, or tablets. Furnish the spot with a comfortable and commodious chair that invites lingering. Add a standing lamp that directs a properly bright reading light over your shoulder and onto the page. Move in an end table to keep drinks, remote controls, and reading materials at hand.

Neutral Bedroom Ideas : This master bedroom limits furnishings and minimizes color to put the focus on the room's finer things. Create easy-on-the-eye elegance by using white or a pale, neutral hue as your primary color. Mix in silver-threaded upholstery fabrics, white chandeliers and lamp shades, mercury glass lamp bases, chic furniture profiles, touches of black, and a single accent color (in this case blue) to direct attention around the room.

Focus Your Attention : Old world patinas, furniture profiles, and fabric patterns fashion elegantly appointed master bedrooms. Relying on a low-key scheme of olive, cream, and gray, this master bedroom captivates thanks to a diverse array of fabrics, finishes, and furnishings that advance a collected outlook. When creating a similar room, use different shades of your main colors and sparingly introduce just one or two new hues to enhance the view.

Reinterpret a Look : Think outside of the box when taking a cue from European bedroom designs. Do like these homeowners did: Create a modern translation of an old-world style. Checks in varying scales, unfussy fabrics, and charming cottage wallpaper emit country French rhythms, but due to the elements' simple lines and refreshing colors the boudoir sports up to the minute appeal.

2014 Tips for Choosing Perfect Bedroom Color Schemes

Whether you crave a palette of bright colors or prefer a soothing scheme of neutrals for your bedroom, find inspiration from these bedrooms that showcase colors perfectly.

Peppy Color Scheme : Coral Orange + Aqua Blue + Latte White 
Neutral walls and furniture in shades of similar warm white create a cloudlike backdrop for vibrant coral-orange and aqua blue. Abstract floral print shams on the bed provide the inspiration for the color scheme and the rest of the room's elements follow suit. To start your bedroom color scheme, find a pillow or bedspread with colors you love and build from there. Often, bedding comes in coordinated sets, but don't be afraid to break them up. Mix and match, or leave parts of the set out. For example, nix the bed skirt that matches the pillows and opt for a version in a solid color that blends with the rest of the bedding.

Fashion-Forward Color Scheme : Slate + Lemon + Cloud 
The oh so fashionable color palette of gray and yellow makes a bold statement in this petite bedroom. A rich slate on the walls leans heavily towards the blue end of the gray spectrum and is the star of the scheme. Cloud-color bedding continues the gray parade, and yellow on the pillows, ottomans, and accessories brings a partly sunny vibe to the chic grays.

Snowy White Color Scheme : Pearl White + Cream + Black
Evoking the look of freshly fallen snow, this cottage style bedroom combines pearly whites with softer yellow-based whites for a look that is undeniably soothing and graceful. A mirrored nightstand and oval mirror above the bed break up the blanket of white, as do hints of black.

Modern Color Scheme : Bright Sky Blue + Cool White + Warm Oak
Blue is a quintessential classic, but its enduring legacy works in modern settings as well. To achieve the look, sky blue is used with crisp white as well as clean-lined furniture and accessories in this bedroom. The wall color, a shade lighter than the bedding and drapes, maintains the modern monochromatic color scheme, but pulls back the walls slightly to allow the other elements, such as the architectural bed in warm oak, to shine.

Classic Global Color Scheme : Poppy Red + Mink Gray
Gray gets pulled into the excitement of red, creating a traditional bedroom alive with global-inspired motifs. Red bedding and pillows turn a simple sleigh bed into a focal point and mink gray walls temper the rich red and crisp white palette. Block and ikat prints bring global flair to the space. The curtains dial back on red and rely on a palette of brown, black, and orange, a move that acknowledges the red's presence, but seeks to not overuse the crimson hue in the space.

Serene Green Color Scheme : Seafoam Green + Tidal Blue + Surf White
A beach inspired color scheme strays from being too "theme-y" when there is nary a beach motif in sight. In this bedroom, seafoam green and watery blues evoke a seaside look, while traditional elements, such as the upholstered window cornice, an antique chair, and graceful headboard maintain a level of sophistication.

Elegant Neutral Color Scheme : Antique Whites + Crisp White
Forget the notion that your whites have to match. A mixed bag of neutrals can create a visually interesting space with a few simple tricks. Keep your palette of whites within the same family, so that they all share similar undertones. In this bedroom, warm whites in varying intensities color the walls, trim, and bedding. Texture and repetition also bring the palette to life. Using each color more than once makes the mixing look more intentional. Here, light mocha appears on the trim, stool cushions, and shams, while linen white colors the artwork and drapes.

Fresh Cottage Color Scheme : Linen White + Sunny Yellow + Dove Gray
White is a go to choice for bedrooms because of its soothing, simple properties. Plus, it can be interpreted as modern, traditional, cottage, or vintage. In this cheery space, the neutral goes cottage, with splashes of yellow on the bedding and plenty of style-specific accents, such as the wrought iron bed and eclectic gathering of accessories. Hints of gray keep the color palette fashion-forward.

Dramatic Color Scheme : Navy Blue + Snow White + Lipstick Pink
Dark colors equate with drama in a bedroom setting. For a more steady approach to drama, use a dark color in one large dose and let the rest of the room's elements remain bright. In this sophisticated bedroom, rich navy blue colors the walls and is a backdrop for the burlap white headboard, bench, and nightstand. Snow white bedding with lipstick pink trim and white drapes are also eye catching against the deep blue.

Pink Panache Color Scheme : Blush Pink + Candlelight Yellow + Charcoal Black
Pale pink grass cloth sets this room aglow and softens the angles of the vaulted ceiling. Mixing white bedding with pink sheets and shams ensures the color remains sensuous, not saccharine. Candlelight yellow tones in the artwork and a large area rug offer contrasting color, but also contribute to the glow of the room. Black brings structure to the bedroom via a curvaceous bed frame, table lamps, and the frame on the painting.

Oceanside Color Scheme : Watercolor Blue + Sandy White
Simple, but hardly simplistic, a color palette of two is a welcoming break from a color-saturated world. In this light-filled room, the judicious use of white reflects the incoming natural light, making the blue walls appear almost iridescent. A more saturated palette on the painting above the bed serves as a contrast point and a reminder of just how light and delicate the rest of the room is.

Black & White Color Scheme : Ebony + Powder White + Pale Citron
Black and white are anything but basic when played out in a symphony of pretty patterns and textures. White drapes soften expansive walls and high ceilings. The fabric is thin, which makes the drapes floaty, rather than bulky. In a room that gets a lot of natural light or has high ceilings, an element with a bold visual presence will anchor the room. Here, a black upholstered bed grounds the space and a white geometric pattern unites the piece to the rest of the room. When incorporating color with black and white, go with a barely there color to keep the room's emphasis on graphic elements. The muted citron walls in this room are subtle, but still add interest.

Natural Color Scheme : Sage Green + Bark Brown + Swan White
Colors and motifs from nature introduce charm to this quaint bedroom. The flowering branch fabric used on the window shade and bed skirt inspire the room's palette. A coordinating stripe fabric on the sham continues the green and brown color play and an ikat pillow offers an unexpected twist in motif. The pure white duvet, trim, and lampshade offer a clean counterpoint to the bedroom's muted colors. To avoid color overload, match paint swatches to a pattern, but then use the color at the top of the swatch for your walls. Here, the wall color has similar undertones to the browns in the room's fabrics, but is several shades lighter.

Perfectly Aged Color Scheme : Country French Blue + Antique Whites
Capture the charm and grace of a bygone era with a palette of blue and tan in shades that appear antiqued. Keep the blues reigned in and employ a limited range of shades to maintain a sense of elegance. Here, the wall color matches the blue in the bedding and table skirt perfectly. Take a little more liberty with the whites. Using pure shades alongside shades in varying degrees of antiquing gives the room a collected old-time look. Bright white linens and freshly painted white trim indicate that the room has been maintained and freshened, while the patina on the chair and aged white plates nod to the past.

Cozy Cool Color Scheme : Granite Gray + Down White + Grass Green
Envelope an expansive room in a blanket of coziness with a rich, yet warm wall color. Here, a saturated gray with warm yellow undertones is the color of choice. An abundance of white contributes a modern vibe, while hints of zingy green on the headboard and chevron throw pillow inject life into the demure color scheme.

Monochromatic Color Scheme : Taupe + Cream + Squash
Monochromatic color schemes are poised for success when the hues stop just short of the extremes. In this bedroom, a range of taupes colors everything including the bedding, furniture, and wall color, but the palette excludes the deepest, darkest of taupes. Sticking to the light and medium range taupes focuses the color scheme for a more polished look. Squash yellow makes a cameo on throw pillows and the tan trim unites the blocks of yellow to the rest of the room's palette.

Contemporary Grace Color Scheme : Dove Gray + Tulip Pink 
Hints of pink bring a graceful air to a contemporary space. Gray and white patterns from the striped rug to the damask drapes and plaid wallpaper are subtle, yet add visual texture, while bright tulip pink punctuates the space. When introducing a bright accent color, use it at least three times in the room so it flows seamlessly.
