10 Decor Ideas For Your Master Bedroom

1. Invest In Your Bed

Your bedroom is for sleeping and because we spend on average 26 years of our life in bed (yes, really) it's important to choose a great bed. Certainly, it's without a doubt that an inviting bed will make you feel more relaxed and at home in your bedroom. Plus, your bed is the focal point of your bedroom, so it's got to be great!


Whatever you choose, we highly recommend that you take your time considering your options, measuring up and if you need to save for that dream bed. You want your bedroom furniture to last a lifetime, so take your time choosing. 

2. Bedroom Wall Paint Colours

Choose wall paint colours for your master bedroom that encourage relaxation and calmness. The colour of your walls will have a huge impact on the way that your bedroom looks and feels. The key to choosing the right paint colour for your master bedroom is to opt for paints with warming undertones. We love earthy pinks such as our Bohemia and Broderie Paint. These warming colours will cocoon you in your bedroom making you feel safe and comfortable. Perfect for a good nights sleep. See below for some of our favourite serenely stylish bedroom shades.

3. Statement Ceilings aka The Fifth Wall

In our blog, Statement Ceiling Style Ideas we urged our blog readers to not neglect their ceilings! Often forgotten, painting or wallpapering your ceiling can have a dramatic impact on your master bedroom decor. So, if you love a bold and wild pattern then wallpaper is for you. Choose between animal print wallpapers, geometric wallpapers and punchy floral wallpapers too. The effect will be transformative on your bedroom, drawing the eye up as soon as you enter the room.

Alternatively, for those who prefer a more paired back look painting your ceilings is a great alternative. A firm favourite has got to be dark blue/black/grey paint on your ceilings. However, there is an assumption that dark painted ceilings can make rooms feel oppressive and smaller, for instance.

4. Headboards

Practical yet beautiful a statement headboard can make quite the impression in your master bedroom. For an ultra grand look with added comfort, the Art Deco Super King Headboard is a show-stopping choice. For something eco-conscious that brings natural textures into your space, the Sustainable King Size Bed Headboard is a boldly beautiful piece to opt for.

5. Statement Chandelier

If an elegant and grand bedroom filled with drama is what you want then a statement chandelier is a must. Drawing the eye upwards and bringing a luxurious look to your sleeping space, a chandelier is always a good idea. We have some fearlessly fabulous designs that will complement any interior. So, if you want to make your room stand out from the rest in extraordinary style, then check out our collection of Chandeliers and Pendant Lights alike. You will not regret it!

Some of our quirkiest choices for your bedroom include the Statement Crystal Branch Ceiling Light, Cloud Pendant Ceiling Light, Showstopping Multi-Layer Glass Chandelier & Stunning Art Deco Crystal Chandelier!

6. Bedside Tables

Your nightstand needs to be practical containing all of your bedside essentials, but that doesn't mean it can't be beautiful too!

At Rockett St George we firmly believe that even your functional day-to-day pieces such as bedroom furniture can be beautiful and fit your home interiors too. So with that in mind, we always recommend that first things first you consider what you need. Do you need a drawer to hide away your lotions, potions, books, glasses and other bedside table essentials? Or, alternatively, do you prefer a more minimal nightstand and thus a bedside table without hidden storage would be perfect for you? Once you've decided on what you need you can then look for something that fits your bedroom decor in that particular style. Some of our favourites include our Rockett St George Sustainable Bedside Table, Gorgeous Mango Wood & Brass Metal Detail Bedside Table, Hudson Bedside Table and Halcyon Bedside Table With Drawer.

7. Accent lighting

To create a cosy and relaxed mood in your bedroom, accent lighting is absolutely essential.

Great examples of accent lighting include wall lights, table lights and floor lamps. In fact, if you don't have a dimmer fitting for your central light then we would recommend never turning it on and sticking to your accent table and floor lights instead. For your bedside tables, we recommend the Shiny Black Dome Table Lamp or the Bronze Effect Art Deco Dancing Lady Table Lamp. Alternatively, if you are short on space why not use wall lights as your bedside table lights. It will create a hotel luxe feel in your bedroom which is hard to compete with. Some of our favourite bedroom wall lights include the Tropical Leaf Gold Wall Light or the Brass Effect Hanging Lamp In Frame.

To light up your bedroom chairs we recommend floor lights. Floor lights will create beautiful pockets of light over your reading nooks. Some of our favourites include the Fern Leaf Palm Tree Style Floor Lamp and the Gold Palm Leaf Tree Floor Lamp for an unforgettable art deco style in your home.

8. Occasional Chairs

Bedroom chairs or occasional chairs add that feeling of elegance and hotel luxe to your boudoir. Add a luxury armchair and side table to the room - the perfect spot to relax with a book during the day or a cheeky scroll through Instagram! 

Top Tip - Occasional Chairs can become somewhat of a 'dumping ground' for items of clothing, books and towels. To avoid this, be sure to stock up on handy storage baskets and extra hangers. This way, your bedroom furniture can be enjoyed to the fullest!

9. Cushions, Throws & Rugs

Cosy textures make a bedroom. Indeed, the more cushions, throws, blankets and bedroom rugs the better!

If you are redecorating your master bedroom on a budget we highly recommend that you invest in great bedding. Linen bedding is great if you struggle to regulate your temperature at night and Egyptian cotton bedding is ideal for those who love super-soft sheets. Then adorn and embellish your bed with decorative cushions, cosy blankets and pretty throws. Some of our favourite cushions and throws include the Fernando Black & White Cotton Throw, Coral Sands & Yellow Paisley Quilt and the Leopard Love Velvet Cushion.

The finishing touch to a bedroom is always a lovely rug. There is nothing quite like the cosy feeling of a soft rug between your toes. For this reason, we love a sumptuously soft sheepskin that can be displayed anywhere in your space.

10. Art & Mirrors

Finally, mirrors and art is a fantastic decor idea for your master bedroom. Adorn your walls in giant artwork, photographs, typography and beautiful framed mirrors. It's a great way to add your unique stamp of individuality to your decor and it's also a brilliant alternative to wallpaper. So, when curating a bedroom feature wall or display, don't be afraid to go all out with your design. Equally, one piece of art or a marvellous mirror can really transform your space, so you'll want to choose things that complement your interior and add a touch of magnificence to the room. Most importantly, have fun with your interior styling as it's what will bring a unique feel to your scheme above all.
