7 Minimalist Bedrooms to Inspire a Soothing Slumber
Minimalism is a wonderful design style to utilise in a world that can often feel overwhelming. It prioritises the essential to create spaces that look and feel stress-free. This is a particularly conducive concept for bedrooms as ideally we want this room to be peaceful, uncluttered, and not too visually stimulating.
Minimalist design is sometimes criticised as being boring or sterile, but it allows us to really consider what we need and love and in turn, be less wasteful in our purchasing decisions. When executed well this aesthetic is chic and soothing to look at.
If you're keen to introduce minimalism into your home, opt for some of these minimalist interior design hallmarks: Clean, simple lines, a monochrome or subdued color palette, a spotlight on craftsmanship, functional furniture, an avoidance of excess ornamentation, and lots of light.
7 Minimalist Bedroom Design Ideas
1. Monochrome magic
Caroline Walls' boudoir embraces a restrained charcoal and white palette that is synonymous with her minimalistic artworks, one of which is hanging above the bed. "I’ve looked to find a balance so that I can still enjoy a space that highlights my love of art and muted, neutral tones," she says. Texture, shapes, and a layered composition of tones play a key role in the success of this home's aesthetic which would might otherwise seem lacklustre with such limited color.

2. Chic and clean
This dreamy space is the sleep sanctuary of makeup artist Nam Vo. Here, she has channelled her love for neutrals to create a space that's calming and chic. "My mind is very busy, and I’m a shopaholic so I wanted it to be clean. It’s almost a little bit like a museum, it’s very, very minimal. I think the saying 'cluttered home, cluttered mind' is so true," she shares.

Lara fells injected her "less is more" aesthetic and design philosophy into boutique accommodation, Apartmento in Byron Bay. Bathed in natural light, the strict neutral palette used throughout the space is the perfect marriage of simplicity and elegance. Crisp Bed Threads sheets in Oatmeal and Pinstripe keep things feeling light and fresh — perfectly matching the apartment’s coastal surroundings.

4. Toasty sanctuary
Minimalism doesn't necessarily mean going sans color and Emma Lane's toasty bedroom proves just that. This room focuses on textured, hand-crated pieces like a hanging pendant and timber side table rather than quantity. The Pink Clay and Terracotta linen is consistent with the home's warm color palette.

5. Pared back classic
Mariko's bedroom in London is the perfect example of how Sage works beautifully in a classic, minimal space. Simple yet refined, this sleep sanctuary boasts a decidedly European aesthetic with its chevron flooring, high ceiling, and panelled walls. A pared-back selection of furniture and decor keeps the space clean and elegant.

7. Coastal cool
Coastal style enthusiasts will love this pared-down take on a classic look. "For us it felt important to minimise the clutter — our bedroom is made up of a bed, a rug, our beautiful loveseat, our bedside stools and an oversized (and I mean, oversized) mirror. That’s about it. You don’t want to wake to chaos everyday," says owner Kendall Sargeant.
