Bedrooms are a place that we spend a lot of time. It's important to think through everything from beds, night tables, bedside lamps, TV stands (if you are so inclined), rugs, sheets, and pillows. Also, it's important to think of the vibe that you want to have in your bedroom design. We hope these images give you inspiration as you design your modern bedroom.

Light streams into the bedroom through walls of floor-to-ceiling glass. The windows are triple-glazed, creating a tight, eco-friendly seal.
In the master bedroom, a small, cramped closet was replaced with a wardrobe that is partially obscured by a slatted wooden screen that was built by Metalworks & Design Studio of Seattle. "The idea was you see through it, so in a sense it doesn't feel like a small space," Smith says.
The pair painted the upstairs master bedroom white, and added a G55 sling chair and leather baskets from their recent design collections. The carpet is from a souk in Casablanca, and the bedcover is from Zara Home. Atop the vintage cup-board is an artwork by Vereecke’s father. Verheyden incorporated all-new woodwork of his design into the room.
The original home was preserved and renovated. In the front bedroom, a small window was replaced with a large painted-steel window seat, a favorite of the residents' grandchildren.
All of the furniture was meticulously handmade by Klebba and Reis to serve the family’s needs.
In the master bedroom, above the Legnoletto by Alias bed, is a photograph by John Huggins. The lamp is from Ikea. “Nothing is painted—all that stripping is about getting to the natural surfaces of the wood, and the concrete block,” Norelius says.
The renovation revealed a 30-foot-deep well beneath the bedroom, which the team half-jokingly considered turning into a fish tank. Instead, they opted for a simple bedroom with plenty of built-in storage.
When the sliding doors are left open, the rooms enter into a playful dialogue with each other, with the dark exterior walls framing the more colorful bedroom within.
An upstairs bedroom is at once bright and cozy.
“All interior walls were removed to create four individual rooms on the sixth floor,” Hammer says. The two children and the new baby share a bathroom. And in their bedrooms, storage continues to be key.
Balcony views and large sliding glass doors add to the tranquil airiness of the master bedoom.
Wallpaper doesn't have to be patterned: for his own Shelter Island home, designer Jonathan Adler lined the walls of the guest bedroom with grasscloth in Slate for a cozy, natural touch.
The master bedroom features shorter planks of five-and-a-half-inch-wide white oak flooring. Their warmth is enhanced by the wall color, Benjamin Moore Abalone, the only departure from white anywhere in the house. The bed is from CB2, and side table is from Environment 337.
At the opposite end of the studio, Framework Architecture created a partially enclosed sleeping nook that is spacious enough to fit a full-size bed.
The entire house is painted in one color: Sherwin Williams' Ibis White.
The entrance level’s master bedroom has engineered oak floors and a full wall of built-in closets.
The bedroom is tucked in the back of the residence and doesn’t receive a lot of natural light. The couple emphasized the coziness of the space by painting the walls in Space Black from Benjamin Moore and selecting an oversize artwork, Flotar, 2011, by Christian Curiel. The bed is a Louis XV–style reproduction, approximately from the 1950s, that Gil and DeSimio found on eBay.
The master bedroom is accented by a handful of vintage items, including an owl light and record player. Karen re-allocated closet space from the home's two bedrooms to expand the bathrooms.
Donut sits on a custom bed made by craftsman Pete Deeble. “Above the bed I hung a vintage Evelyn Ackerman textile discovered on eBay,” says Frank.
“Life happens around architecture. And that’s fine: A lot of houses get more beautiful when they age.”
