Inside 8 inspiring bedrooms of interior designers and stylists
Fit with a vintage bedroom suite, Jessica's sleep sanctuary looks likes it's straight out of the 1970s. The wooden furniture pairs perfectly with her Olive and Sage linen sheets, creating an earthy and relaxed feel. Her best bedroom styling tip?
"Always add more books, more art and more lamps, but leave some breathing space. Negative space is powerful and can help create a calm room that gives you the space to let happiness and good thoughts in."
Everything in this interior decorator's bedroom has been carefully selected and placed. While minimal, every decor item still serves a purpose in Claudia's sleep sanctuary, from the unique gold-plated lamp to the off-centred artworks. For Claudia, if it doesn't bring a smile to your face every day, get rid of it.
3. Simone Haag
If you've got a small bedroom, look towards Simone Haag's mid-century home where she has managed to make her narrow bedroom look bigger than it really is. The light White and Pinstripe bed linen combined with the natural light coming through the window helps open up the space. Trinkets and treasures line surfaces as far as the eye can see, but somehow nothing feels too cluttered. She's also incorporated textured fabrics, ceramics and greenery, creamy and beige tones to tie everything together.
4. Tali Roth
Interior designer Tali Roth loves a “chic and serene” sleeping space, which she achieves by keeping the clutter away. Her top tips for styling a bedroom are to “have sufficient storage” to ensure there is no “visual clutter”, opt for neutral colours – “light or dark, depending on personal taste" - and prefers a clean, matching Bed Threads linen set in White. Oh, and the most important of all? “Make your bed every morning,” she enthuses. “It’s a must!”
The crafty couple from The Block have a bedroom that flooded with natural light, textural finishings to create depth and a premium fee, and an overwhelming sense of warmth and comfort. It's minimal without being boring, and colourful without being startling. Jenna's top bedroom tip is to design and style the space based on the feeling you want to create.
"I’m all about calm vibes because my life is well, hectic," Jenna explains. "For me, a calming interior is all about a neutral colour palette where I feel most at ease, but for you it might be blues or greens."
If minimalism is your style, Daniel's bedroom will provide some inspiration. His mantra is "less is more" when it comes to decorating a bedroom.
"Few, but edited, pieces that have breathing space," he explains. "A bedroom should be a restful atmosphere, so working with complimentary colours and natural materials works well. I tend to favour layered monochromatic and neutral colours and rely on art for pops of colour."
Coastal vibes flood every room in The Block couple's dream beach home, especially the bedroom. The four poster bed, made by Kyal using timber from the original beach shack where their house now lies, is one of Kara's most beloved pieces in the entire house. Paired wth rich Khaki and natural Oatmeal linen, the result is a sumptuous and restorative space for a good night's sleep.
The interior designer travels to this weekender whenever her and her family need a break from urban life, which is exactly the vibe the bedroom portrays. Her sleep sanctuary exudes comfort and warmth through carefully curated colours and decor items.
"I would never style a room where there’s just a bed against a wall. I always like to have my stacks of books, ceramics or a jewellery bowl behind me so a lodge behind my bed is a non-negotiable," she says.
"Moreover, I always like artwork and it can’t just be a single piece of art over a bed - I always like mixed medium artwork so combining tapestries with ceramics, paper mache, paintings and photographs."
