How to Decide on a Bedroom Style for Newlywed Couples

Your bedroom in your first home as newlyweds definitely calls for careful planning. It should be a welcoming haven to relax in, a safe and private spot to be yourselves, an area for containing your needs and interests practically and conveniently – and, of course, a reflection of your personal style! But that’s just it. What is your style as a couple (in other words, “how do you arrive at a style compromise?”)? Here is your chance to survey the options for a bedroom look, decide which style is “definitely the two of you,” then go for it!

Looks and Product Picks for Styling Your Couple’s Bedroom

In these fabulous examples, note how a bedroom’s overall ambiance is most often anchored on just 2 or 3 key elements. A coordinated furniture collection, a unique headboard, striking wall art, distinct bed linens. See our editor’s choices for such accents to create the look you want.

Rustic-Industrial Style

Modern Rustic-Industrial-Style
In place of the usual rough-hewn woodworks look, this is rustic with an industrial spin. Cleaner, sparer, wood-grain furniture accented with metal trim, minimalist wall art, mostly grays and natural tones. You can shop this modern look via Wayfair View Product.

Cozy Rustic Style

Contemporary Cozy-Rustic-Style
Prefer a more traditional rustic feel? Choose a coordinated wood-plank style bedroom set, available from Wayfair along with all the accent pieces. Then, complement it with rough brick columns, matching wood-plank flooring, and exposed ceiling beams. View Product.

Bright Traditional Style

Traditional-Style in White and Blue
If light and airy is more your style, go for a traditional bedroom set in white from Wayfair with a bookcase-style headboard and practical hidden drawers. Set this amidst light-painted walls, plus accessories and bed linens in muted tones. View Product.

Modern Contemporary Style

Modern black and white style
If you are both into modern art but in an understated way, why not consider this chic, minimalist look with striking artsy accents. Gray, brown, and black provide a trendy contrast against a sleek, all-white bedroom set. See how you can recreate this look via Wayfair. View Product.

Modern Luxe Style

Mod-Luxe-Style in Luxurious Fabrics
A softer, more luxurious look can be created with an upholstered headboard, available from Pier1 Imports, setting the tone of the room. Grays and neutrals provide a muted feel, despite a mix and match of a mirrored side table, piles of assorted pillows, and subtly patterned bed linens. View Product.

Cottage/Country Style I

Country cottage style in whites

If “heavenly yet homey” is a style that appeals to you, perhaps you can agree on this Cottage/Country bedroom design – dominated by pristine white bed linens. The accent pieces from Wayfair are equally muted, from the upholstered headboard to the distressed-finish bench and night tables to the mirrored frames. View Product.

Cottage/Country Style II

Country cottage style in silver

Just as brimming with cozy country charm is this bedroom style via Pier1 Imports. Even without the holiday accents that make this extra appealing, the room would be inviting all year round. Note the graceful headboard molding, the whites and grays on the walls, sliding doors, side table, area rug, and bed linens. View Product.

Bold and Bright Ethnic Style

If you like your home filled with vibrant color, then a bohemian/ethnic bedroom design might be your thing. Here is where an exuberant pattern on your bed cover, like this one from Amazon, can make a striking statement. A bold wall color definitely will, too! View Product.

Bohemian Patterned Style

Intricate prints and patterns and jewel-toned colors on your beddings, as in these ones from Amazon, will transport your bedroom to an exotic place and time. Just the thing if you are a couple who love travel or have a multicultural background. View Product.

Natural Bohemian Style

Another option is to go for a bit of an organic vibe in a bohemian-inspired bedroom. Choose bed linens and pillows in more earthy colors and install a unique headboard in a natural material, like this Pier1 Imports piece woven from seagrass! View Product.

Bohemian Paisley Style

Less loud but still exotic is this bohemian bedroom setting featuring paisley patterned beddings, sold by Moreover Bedding and Fulfilled by Amazon. These perk up an otherwise muted room in soft gray and white. View product.

So, which of these bedroom styles do you see yourselves living with? Will it be rustic, country, modern, contemporary, or bohemian?
