Modern bedrooms don't have to be bare. Some of our favourite modern bedrooms have texture, warmth, and visual interest. Modern bedroom design is about creating a functional and beautiful space to rest and relax. When planning a bedroom makeover, consider quality materials, streamlined furniture, luxurious linens, layered textures, and well-chosen colours.
This bedroom features warm wood tones, soft textures, and clean lines. Consider a wood-paneled accent wall instead of paint or wallpaper. In this bedroom, it serves as a headboard, and black-and-white photos and minimalist sconces add contrast. Add a plush sheepskin rug that feels like a cloud for ultimate hygge vibes.
Bedroom Modern Rustic
Modern bedroom with blonde-wood canopy bed. Neutral colours create a calm atmosphere. Soften white walls with a rug, plush bedding, and bench cushions.

Modern Bedroom with Calming Neutrals
This kids' bedroom has playful wallpaper. Animal print is a great backdrop for colourful floor cushions and throw pillows. Two white bookshelves complement the wallpaper. They're also lower so kids can reach them. Layer a large area rug with an oversize sheepskin rug to encourage play.
Colorful children's bedroom
Add a pop of colour to a monochromatic space. This modern bedroom's black and white colour scheme is warmed by a brass wall sconce, green artwork, and a brown area rug. Layer plush cream and white bedding to add luxury to your bed. A black accent wall adds drama and a subtle herringbone pattern.
Monochrome Bedroom with Green
Blue and yellow bedroom shows how to mix patterns. Every inch of this space is interesting on its own but creates a stunning effect when combined. When using multiple patterns, use solids to give the eye a break; the white Euro pillows and yellow throw pillows do just that.
Modern farmhouse bedroom has shiplap walls and a clean-lined wood bed. Bedsheets echo the rug's colours and patterns. When keeping a space bright and open, less is more. This room's minimalist decor and mostly white colour scheme are modern. Shiplap walls provide a neutral base that doesn't compete with furniture, linens, or accessories.
Shiplap-Wall Farmhouse Bedroom
This stunning bedroom features a woven pendant light, vintage area rug, minimalist platform bed, and patterned pillows. The black wall is the perfect backdrop for the bed's softer colours and textures, and the distressed area rug grounds the space with warmth. Instead of ignoring oddly-placed or sized windows, design around them. The windows in this room frame art and the bed, creating symmetry.
