White Sheets on a Bed with a Side Table In a bedroom | scooms

Is the decor in your bedroom in need of some TLC? Then be inspired by our pick of the most mindful bedroom schemes around. They will have you snoozing the night away in style...


The bare necessities

Made Bed with White Sheets | scooms

A failsafe way in which to create a calm environment is by keeping surfaces streamlined and sticking to the essentials, as this bedroom illustrates beautifully. A soothing tonic for tired eyes, simple white fabrics, fixtures and fittings will have you feeling at ease in no time. If an all-white room feels a little icy however, you can add a little warmth with a grey headboard and wooden floor, as shown here. scooms helps to keeps things simple and stylish with a duvet that provides the ideal warmth, the perfect weight and just enough drape to contour your body - bliss.

Calming colour palette

White Bedroom Makeover | scooms

Rose gold, blush and white colourways provide the perfect haven of calm, as seen here in this stylish bedroom. Soft white linens have been teamed with a layering of sumptuous scatter cushions, while a tactile cotton throw adds warmth to the look. A rose gold side lamp provides just the right amount of luxury too. Natural wood finishes work particularly well with white, rose gold and pink schemes, so choose side tables, beds and picture frames in their rawest most organic state for a head-turning look like this.

One with nature

Luxury Bedroom | scooms

We love the subtle use of pattern and texture in this bedroom, which teams natural finishes and colours effortlessly. The room is simply styled and yet full of character – from the intricate hand-carved wooden bed and cream woven rug, to the healthy selection of houseplants and distressed, white side table. Plants in all their wild and wonderful shapes will help soften any harsh lines the room may have in store too – in the frame of the bed, for example.

Dreamy artwork

Cushions on a Bed | scooms

When it comes to artwork for bedroom walls, docile and dreamy -  as opposed to energetic and busy - is the way forward. So adorn walls with pictures you love and that make you feel rested and serene. Try and match colours used in artwork with those in your fixtures and furnishings, as shown here in this stunning bedroom, as it will tie the room scheme together. Subtle features like this make a big impact.

Back to black

Black and White Bedroom | scooms

Most top designers will agree that a little black detail in a room scheme will help to draw the eye in and define the look. And this monochrome room works black, white and grey to perfection. A faux fur throw and sumptuous linens create a bed that will have you running to jump onto too. Pass the eye mask we’re ready to relax...
