Serene Bedroom Design

August 24, 2013



I just finished an online design consultation for a bedroom redesign I wanted to share. The homeowners wanted suggestions to design a peaceful and serene bedroom.



I started the design with the headboard that was going to be replaced. After several emails back and forth, Hannah and her husband fell in love with a headboard:

I suggested a light, warm gray color for the walls:

EdgecombGray HC173

Benjamin Moore- Edgecomb Gray HC 173

I also suggested white bedding which always look beautiful. I emailed Hannah a few choices of rugs I thought would work with her traditional furniture, the new headboard and wall color. This was the winner!:

And here is part of our finished bedroom design board:

They love it! I love the soothing, restful palette also. What do you think? Do you think it is a peaceful and serene bedroom design?

  1. I’m waiting to ‘vote’ till I see the finished project 😉 My questions would be, how big is the rug and how big are those pattern designs on it? My own opinion is if the pattern is large it may detract somewhat from the peaceful and serene idea. It is a gorgeous rug though. But then again, everyone’s idea of peaceful/serene varies a bit. Can’t wait to see more 🙂

    • The rug was a 5 x 8 Connie. Just peeking out from under the bed. The pattern size is good- it is the colors that bring everything in the room together.

  2. Yes, I love it, Kelly – you captured the serenity they were looking for. If you work with someone online, how do you set your fees? I have a friend who is starting a bedroom project, and I would like to refer her to you.
    Thanks, Angie

  3. Some very nice choices Kelly and yes, I think it will certainly look and feel serene..
    Unlike Connie, i think the boldness of the rug (clients really liked it, right?) gives the room personality without taking away from the restfulness of it..
    I’ve seen too rooms that are considered serene which sometimes can equal boring..
    Thanks for sharing this with us!
