modern cement and sand

Cement tile floors give this bedroom designed by Akin Atelier an industrial edge while loose linens and cream and sandy trim make it feel cozy and comfortable. The colors together evoke a misty morning by the sea.


Gray, green, and off-white

Sarah Solis used taupe, green, and rich, semi-black red as neutral accent colors in this contemporary Mediterranean-style bedroom. While both bright colors bring a touch of liveliness to the black and off-white bedroom. A framed picture brings the painting together.


Minimal dark green and burnt orange

Dark green and rich orange work together as neutrals in this context, where only the essential elements are shown. Designed by Shapeless Studio, this bedroom strikes a wonderful balance between urban sophistication and relaxed rustic style.


Gray, light wood and white

Minimalism doesn’t have to be cool! In this farmhouse bedroom designed by British firm McLaren.Excell, the loft bedroom features tons of warm wood and cozy linens in shades of gray for a welcoming, casual mood.


Cream and light gray

Here’s a more formal way to design a neutral bedroom: Victoria Hagan incorporated plenty of textiles to soften and humanize the space’s scale. High ceilings bring drama, but the warm green hues ensure it doesn’t feel austere or cavernous.


antelope and marine

The neutral bedroom of the AP Design House is punctuated by eye-catching metallic sculptures and chrome accents that create cool tones and contrast with warmer neutrals. Rich layers of texture make for a comfortable, inviting, modern and elegant lounge break.


Clay and Navy

In this eclectic bedroom designed by Heidi Caelier, dynamic layers of prints, materials, and styles give a unique, character-filled impression. However, more muted neutral colors help keep the space from becoming overtly bold. The nautical and pink terracotta scheme works especially well with modern black accents and classic wood furniture.


pale yellow and white

If you want to lean a little yellow but don’t want to get all sunny, consider the buttercream approach, as Anne Payne did in her New York City bedroom.


dark green

David Frazier took a moody and earthy approach in his bedroom in his New York City apartment. While the color (Studio Green by Farrow & Ball) is commendable, it’s also the texture-rich color that elevates the walls. “We wanted to showcase the movement in plaster, so the walls were painted with a satin finish,” he explains. “It gives a certain depth that we wouldn’t have been able to achieve with flat paint.”


Coastal blue and white

Blue skies are neutral everywhere, in our books, but especially in coastal areas. A preppy blue-and-white striped wrap lights up the headboard in this coastal bedroom by AP Design House. Rattan and woven pieces are also great staples in a beach house.


brown and honey

This chocolate hue is more calming than tonic, so if you’re looking for a saturated neutral, this is a great inspiration. Designer Fiona Lynch felt the color, Rich Biscuit by Dulux, was perfect for the bedroom, especially when paired with offbeat accents for eclectic elegance.


Modern blue, black and white

In this basic bedroom, designer Andy Beers of Ore Studios chose less saturated versions of the colors used in the shared rooms for a calm but continuous design. Crisp white contrasts with grainy black and is united by a deep midnight blue tone.


red and light gray

Red can be surprisingly neutral when paired with the right colors and materials. Tamsin Johnson Interiors used the modern photo as a starting point for the color scheme.


Black, white and gray

Wall-to-wall gray rugs provide a soft landing for cool mornings, and floor-to-ceiling steel and glass windows allow views of the woods to set the scene for this bedroom designed by Kathleen McCormick. Mid-century monochromatic details match the bedroom’s architectural bones beautifully, too.


Blue, ocher, and gray

Philip Smith chose a soft gray for the walls and then lit up the room with burnt orange and blue bedding. Les Indiennes throw marks the headboard.


dark wood and white

For a moody look in neutral décor, note this bedroom designed by Nicole Hollis. The dark stain of the wood in addition to the gray linens and pewter décor make this room sophisticated, elegant, and soothing all at once.


Sage and orange

“I wanted to create a bedroom full of character,” designer Jae Joo says of the master bedroom in Boston Rowhouse. Although classic and simple, the room is full of character thanks to the shrunken gallery, curved furniture, and colorful accents. Light gray walls look blue in some lighting and green in others; Either way, they’re a welcome departure from the white canvas that characterizes most bedrooms.


Sophisticated black and light gray

“I am a firm believer that within a home, different rooms should evoke different feelings and purposes,” says designer Nanette Brown. The rest of the rooms in this New York City home are painted in darker hues, while the bedroom features the opposite. Although the colors are different, each room shares a sense of refined elegance and restraint.


Violet and white

Pale pink bedding and artwork add a gentle, playful quality to this neutral and contemporary bedroom designed by Robert McKinley Studio.
