Bare white walls and traditional-style ivory furniture could look stark in an ordinary teen bedroom. But paired with exposed brick and dark wooden floors, the space feels composed and complete.
Choosing all-over white in a traditional bedroom makes perfect design sense: The natural finishes and sweet details in furniture, accessories and window treatments offer all the color interest you might need.
This sun-porch-turned-sleeping-space feels airy and open because of the white ceiling beams overhead. Shabby-chic bedding in pastel colors offer little resistance to the light palette.
With pure white walls as a backdrop, your bedroom can achieve a gallery feel: Let colorful artwork, frames and matting add the design interest you crave.
Light shades of dusty rose and ivory make this attic alcove bedroom feel large, even though the slanted ceiling cuts into the vertical space.
When painted bright white, textured walls—whether concrete or plaster—are the perfect backdrop for natural accessories like the gnarled coral and blossoming hydrangea, here.
Snow-white walls are a natural contrast to the natural wood of the exposed ceiling beams and door trim in this airy bedroom.
These white walls have an undertone of lilac, making them a sweet backdrop in a country-style bedroom.
Keeping walls a pearly white and letting naturally stained wooden furniture and flooring make the statements in this room keep it quiet—and beautiful.
What this white-heavy room lacks in pattern and movement, it makes up for in muted style that promises to relax and refresh guests.
Here, bare alabaster walls and standout white furniture make as much of a statement as the persimmon bedding does.
In keeping with the traditional decor of this stately bedroom, the walls are painted a cream color just a shade richer than the stark white linens and canopy panels.
Warm wood tones meld beautifully with the ivory paint, bedding and canopy in this dramatic master bedroom.
This bedding's bands of pearl, slate, and pewter make the room feel restful, especially when backed by pure white walls.
This lofty master bedroom proves that you don't need to stick with a single shade of white in order for a sleeping space to feel clean, modern and cozy.
Clean white flooring, walls, and bedding are the perfect canvas to paint on accessories in shades of dusty rose, from light pink in the window treatments, to mauve on the cushions, to plum in the artwork.

This room looks restful. I especially like how the inside of the desk is painted blue...unexpected.

I think the flower pattern is a little too country style for the rest of the furniture. The dustruffle should be a solid color like a brown or wine and the lamps are not what I would have used; maybe a more of an urn shape. Love the " pouff in the cieling though!! Also the planked part of the cieling.
