1. The modern glamour green bedroom idea

Whether your home is traditional or contemporary, there’s always a place for modern glamour – that effortlessly stylish combination of sleek lines and luxurious fabrics. Think soft and sumptuous textures with plenty of cushioning and buttoning, along with metallic touches and bold statement pieces. The modern glamour green bedroom idea is confident and striking; don’t be afraid to push the boundaries as long as individual pieces are tasteful and well-crafted.

Start with a beautifully upholstered statement bed in green and pair it with polished dark wood bedroom furniture. Then, accessorise with gold mirrors, monochromatic wall art and soft rugs for a look that’s both sumptuous and stylish.

2. The elegant grey and green bedroom

Ever the chameleon, green can be understated and refined as well as bright and bold. Choose an elegant green for a calm and relaxing feel, perfect for restful sleep, and accent with grey to create a grownup bedroom that you’ll love for years to come.

Start by painting all four walls a soft sage green. This is a timeless hue that works well with all styles and finishes of bedroom furniture, from oak to pine to painted. A stylish grey bedframe will look fabulous – then you can accessorise with carefully chosen wall art and accent cushions. Using silver as a secondary colour for a table lamp or a mirror will give your grey and green bedroom design an even more luxurious look.


3. The pretty mint green bedroom

Sage green? Army green? Forest green? If you love green but aren’t sure which one to pick, may we gently suggest mint green? Fresh and clean, this is a soft shade that’s pretty but never cloying. Mint green works well by itself but also ably anchors a variety of mint green bedroom design styles and themes.

There’s the modern country bedroom look: team mint green with a natural wood chest of drawers or white painted furniture and accessorise with touches of pastel pink or even a pink divan bed. Or you could work your mint green walls into a 1980s style bedroom by adding pops of yellow and cerise for bedding and scatter cushions alongside white high-gloss furniture and plush rugs.

4. The gender neutral green bedroom idea

Parents-to-be who have decided not to discover the gender of their child often lean toward painting the nursery yellow. After all, yellow is bright and cheerful, easy to like and always sunny. But choose the softest shade of green instead, and you’ll create a bedroom that will grow with your child. Soft pastel green is more relaxing a colour than yellow (which could make bedtimes easier) and also makes for a wonderful canvas upon which to display artwork, murals and motifs – from dinosaurs to farm animals and tropical birds to countryside floral – that evolve as your child grows and their tastes change.

Pair your pale green walls with a white single bed, or opt for a usefully modular children’s bed such as a high- sleeper or a mid-sleeper with built in storage, desk and display space, perfect for a compact bedroom.


5. The eye-catching chartreuse green bedroom idea

If you wouldn’t call yourself a shrinking violet, then why not go for one of the brightest and most vivid shades of green on the spectrum? Chartreuse is so green that it’s almost yellow. A classic tone with a traditional feel, it’s still a very cool and on trend colour.

Hunt around for an upholstered bed in the perfect shade and accessorise with green and yellow cushions. Or, be bold and paint your walls chartreuse and pair with more neutral furnishings like a simple wood wardrobe and chest of drawers.


6. The very vintage 1930s green bedroom theme

The green you need for this green bedroom idea is that instantly identifiable vintage green – the offbeat, vaguely minty 1930s green that’s the colour of fondant icing, Bakelite rotary telephones, and enamel bread bins and storage tins.

These days, though, it’s also become a cool colour for a chic and creative bedroom. Try it with oak bedroom furniture and elegant wall art, and invest in grand divan bed or storage bed with an upholstered and buttoned headboard.


7. The tropical green bedroom idea

Contemporary, fashionable and, dare we say, very Instagrammable, the tropical green bedroom theme shows no sign of waning in popularity. And, really, why would it? This vibrant and stylish blend of iconic tropical elements – monstera leaves, palm trees, pineapples, sloths and monkeys – alongside copper accessories, wicker occasional tables and even macramé accents showcases a comfortable modern vibe that’s right on trend.

Accessories are key here, so take time to select the perfect metal-framed geometric mirror, the adorable art print, the animal print rug, the fluffy cushions and the plants. Tailor-made for teens and beyond, this is a look that has longevity thanks to its fresh clean vibe, touches of whimsical humour and obvious eco-sensibilities. If you’re furnishing a young person’s room in this style, it makes sense to invest in a high-quality mattress that’ll see them through their childhood and beyond.

8. The rustic rainforest green bedroom idea

While our tropical green bedroom idea is all bright colours, bold accents and high-fashion style, our rustic rainforest is very much down to earth. For this one, choose natural green hues for your walls and pair with furniture and home accessories that feature all-natural materials such as mango wood and teak.

Love the look of industrial furniture for your home? This design theme makes it easy to bring naturally weathered wood and rustic metal work into the bedroom. Try a metal bed frame or a metal bedside cabinet. And don’t be afraid to shop other departments to find some key bedroom furniture pieces. A rustic sideboard can provide bedroom storage for stackable items, and an industrial-style display cabinet works just as well upstairs as downstairs.
