Bedroom furniture and decor: Ideas, inspiration and products to shop

Bedrooms are some of our most intimate rooms – they are places where we go to rest, relax, rejuvenate. They also express the style in a different way from the rest of the home, as bedrooms are more personal than outdoor spaces like living rooms or kitchens.

Every week, in our Home Visits section, we publish guided tours that take us to all kinds of homes with personality, style and soul. That means we’re taking a look at room details that might otherwise be off limits to guests – think custom carpentry, dazzling lighting, and indulgent textiles.

Below, find out how to get the look of some of our favorite bedrooms.

Two architects transform an 1889 factory into a house and studio

When Sarah and Jeff Klymson, he, founding director of the architecture and design firm Collective Office, and she, an architect and interior designer working in the hospitality industry, found an old factory circa 1889 in Chicago’s South Loop , they knew they could transform into the home of their dreams. The couple’s second-floor residence above Jeff’s office measures 2,600 square feet. Inside, the couple maximized the height of interior ceilings, minimized the number of doors in the house, and created storage spaces that weren’t cramped or intrusive. The bedroom features custom joinery alongside vintage and modern design choices.

Inside a modernized ‘1971 dream palace’

In Grand Rapids, Michigan, Sam Grawe, former global brand manager at Herman Miller and editor-in-chief of Dwell, transformed a “1971 dream palace” into a home fit for a family of four. The combination of vintage Herman Miller pieces and works by Jasper Morrison, the Bouroullec brothers and many others is perfect: playful without appearing overwhelming. Unlike the rest of the home’s bright, open white spaces, the master bedroom turns inward with deep mocha walls, furnished with pieces from Design Within Reach, Herman Miller, and more.

A ranch-style house built on stilts after Hurricane Sandy

When Maya Schindler and her husband moved across the country from Los Angeles to Long Island, New York, she had a grand vision of what their new home would be like. She wanted a Victorian that she could fill with modern furniture: Kartell meets towers, turrets and skylights. What the couple ultimately chose was a ranch-style house alongside shingles that sits on stilts to prevent future flooding. For the interior, Schindler describes his approach to design as one that attempts to balance the top and the bottom and focuses on humble materials and shapes. The objects in the bedroom, from a Marimekko for Target surfboard to a vintage Castiglioni light, clearly illustrate this approach.

Artist couple marry styles in Brooklyn apartment

The home of artists Lisa Hunt and Kyle Goen in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens is a study of personal history, artistic practice, and comfort. Located on the top floor of a two-story stone townhouse, the couple’s bright two-bedroom apartment spans the entire length of the building. Among its charms are the pre-war floors and wall moldings and the magnolia tree that blooms just outside the couple’s living room. In the bedroom, Hunt’s work hangs over jewel-toned pillows and complements and pops out against the gray walls.

John Robshaw’s textiles enjoy proper cult following, and this simple but repeated motif has a similar feel to that of Hunt and Goen’s apartment.

Demolish an uninhabitable house and start over

In San Francisco’s Noe Valley neighborhood, architects Robert Edmonds and Vivian Lee of Edmonds + Lee Architects demolished a modest yellow house in “very, very poor condition” and started building something of their own.

The house they created, a decidedly modern house with a roof reminiscent of the original gable house and a loft feel inside, was worth the wait for the couple and their two children. “There is a perception that modern homes are impractical for real people, and we set out to refute that by emphasizing the functionality of the style,” says Lee. As seen in the main image of this story, the master bedroom and bathroom merge, separated only by optional pocket doors.
