Women’s Bedroom Ideas: Not Just for Women

We believe the idea of men’s bedrooms and women’s bedrooms is outdated. Bedrooms are about personalities, and should be as varied and interesting as the men or the women who enjoy them. We’ve created seven very different looks to suit different personalities and lifestyles. From the work-at-home freelancer to the ultra-stylish cool cat, there’s a design to inspire everyone – man or woman alike. Whether you love soft furnishings and indulgent comfort, or bright colours and modern style, each look offers a starting point for a truly stunning bedroom that speaks to you. Please read on to discover a wonderful array of women’s bedroom ideas that are NOT just for women.

1. The Minimalist: Scandi style

Scandi style offers you simplicity and cosiness, perfect for a minimalist space designed for relaxation. As the mantra goes, have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful. Choose furniture that’s clean, elegant and functional – perhaps a roomy accent armchair with modern lines upholstered in a light fabric and a simple wooden double bed. Two splayed leg bedside tables will set off the bed’s natural wood beautifully and store all your night time essentials too. Remember, with Nordic and Scandi style, less is always more, so keep your bedroom furniture to the essentials: wardrobe, bed, chair and bedside tables. Choose a couple of stunning accessories in neutral shades, perhaps a clear or white vase, and pair it with a tall and elegant floor lamp. A tidy room is a tidy mind, and we think pared back perfection never looked so good.

2. The Artsy Type: Bold colour clash

Bring out your artistic side with a colour clash interior that’s fun, stylish and creative. The bold colour clash is an inspired bedroom idea that embraces creativity and innovative design. Now’s your chance to be original and let your imagination run wild. Start from scratch with a blank canvas and – from out-there oranges to striking purples – play with colours and begin your colour clash journey. Pair a striking abstract rug with a boldly coloured chest of drawers for a fun, retro feel. Or add a colourful throw or textured bedspread to a beautifully upholstered divan bed in a bright shade. Try pairing retro with contemporary styles – anything goes in an avant-garde interior. Finally, show off your artistic flair with a colourful collection of wall art. Try abstract pieces bursting with colour or vibrant, lively city scenes. You could even experiment with striking wildlife photography. You’re sure to enjoy creating this fabulous look, and love relaxing in it when you’re finished!

3. The Work-from-Home Freelancer: Sophisticated and organised

We know working from home can be a tricky balancing act sometimes. That’s why we’ve created a bedroom look that’s multifunctional and beautiful, so you can both work and relax in comfort. Choose a high-tech, slimline desk with USB ports and wireless charging for an ultra-functional work station, or a neat wooden corner desk that can double as a dressing table. With everything you need to be productive in one place, you can save the rest of your bedroom for comfort and relaxation.

For truly restful sleep, a clean-lined Ottoman bed with extra storage in a gorgeous neutral fabric is just the ticket. Pair it with a Tempur mattress for indulgent comfort every night. Add a roomy chest of drawers in an elegant French or contemporary style, a sliding door wardrobe for flexible storage and gorgeous accents like a glass vase or an antique clock. Going from the office to the bedroom in a matter of steps? Sounds good to us.

4. Naturally Good Looking: Oak furniture

Create a calm oasis and bask in the natural feel of oak furniture. Contemporary and rustic, unwind in its subtle and inviting warmth. By bringing the outdoors in with natural materials, you infuse your space with the calming and re-energising power of nature. A beautiful oak bed frame will be the focal point of the room – we love Ercol’s timeless wooden furniture with its gentle curves, clean lines and fresh design quality. Experiment with rich, dark textiles or light, earthy neutrals and add luxury with scatter cushions. A classic wooden wardrobe adds timeless charm while a traditional chest of drawers offers a stylish storage solution. Add interest and texture with a natural, fleecy rug for underfoot comfort and don’t forget to add several statement vases to hold colourful flowers or plants for even more natural beauty. This simple look is so easy to achieve but adds such warmth and comfort to your bedroom, it’s sure to become your much-loved hideaway and peaceful sanctuary.

5. The Cool One: Industrial chic

For a bedroom with a cool edge choose the industrial style. Stylishly undone, raw and brimming with character, it’s a real style winner – edgy style and natural materials appeal to everybody. A leather accent chair adds understated cool while a mirrored wardrobe introduces plenty of space-opening reflective light. And to sleep in style, a beautifully upholstered divan bed in a rich, dark colour works wonders against lighter or exposed brick walls. Counter this look’s heaviness and sharp lines with soft textures. Beautiful throws and patterned cushions soften and effortlessly contrast with the dark wood, natural leather and metals favoured by the industrial look. And what’s more, they’re super-comfortable too! You can even take your comfort the next level with a wonderfully supportive Vispring mattress or a memory foam mattress from Tempur and experience your perfect night’s sleep. As bedroom ideas for women (and men) go, we think this is one of the coolest routes to go down.

6. Hollywood Star: The Velvet bedroom

The ultimate luxury bedroom idea for women (and luxury loving me too): Hollywood glamour. Inspired by Hollywood film stars and luxe interiors, indulge in gorgeous upholstery, luxury designs and exquisite accents. There’s nothing too plush or too extravagant with this look. Think velvet double bed or king-size bed with a deep-buttoned headboard for luxurious comfort, complemented by a soft rug underfoot. And with an elegant white dressing table, you can get ready in real style. Gold accessories are a beautiful finishing touch – an elegant gold floor lamp, marble topped occasional table with gold legs, a stunning bronzed clock or a gilded mirror – the choice is yours. Our mirrored bedside tables are a must-have item to add reflective light and bold glamour too. You can even make a statement with a curvaceous, velvet upholstered accent chair and introduce a hint of Art Deco luxury. Opulent, beautiful and glamorous – this stunning look has it all.


7. The Zen seeker: Plush textures and soft textiles

Is your life so busy and hectic that at the end of a long multi-tasking day you long to relax in serene calm? Create a bedroom that’s also a chilled-out sanctuary. Laidback and understated yet luxurious, this appealing bedroom idea for women and men alike promises plenty of comfort. It’s all about cosy layering of textiles and soft furnishings. Find your Zen with a beautifully upholstered divan bed in a light, textured fabric. Create an open and airy atmosphere with light coloured or mirrored sliding door wardrobes, ideal for opening your space up. Accessorise with a variety of soft, neutral textures such as rugs, throws and scatter pillows. Woven textures and soft linens add an easy-living vibe while muted, natural tones and pastels lend relaxed appeal. Casual and chic, this look’s warm, neutral and indulgently soft furnishings create the perfect haven for blissful relaxation.
