How to Decorate a Modern Bedroom

Create a modern bedroom that feels like you

The bedroom is the most personal room in the house. Use your recent move – be it to a studio apartment, loft, or single-family home – to redefine the place where you spend eight blissful hours every night. Give your bedroom a modern or contemporary touch – an aesthetic and style that you can build on and personalize over time.

  • Finding a modern bedframe:
    To create a mid-century modern bedroom, seek out a wood platform bed, like the iconic Nelson Thin Edge Bed. A sleek and streamlined frame doesn’t overpower your space. Not a fan of wood? A metal bed is perfect for a minimalist bedroom, while a soft, fully upholstered bedframe sets the tone for a cozy yet contemporary bedroom. If space allows, add a modern canopy bed for a hint of drama, but if you’re in need of extra storage, choose a storage bed with discreet drawers to hold linens and clothes.
  • Style it with modern bedding:
    When it comes to styling a bed, start with simple, minimalist sheets to give you a peaceful night’s sleep. Garment-washed Belgian linen sheets are perfect for both hot and cool sleepers, and we also love classic cotton sheets – sateen sheets offer a smooth, plush feel, while percale sheets are ideal for sleepers that run hot. A coordinating duvet cover keeps the look sleek and refined, or choose a duvet or quilt with subtle texture or pattern for added dimension. Lastly, toss on the finishing touches – think patterned pillows or cozy sheepskin throws.
  • Shopping for a modern mattress:
    You’ve picked out the perfect modern bedframe for your room – why hide it behind a mattress? The Sonno Mattress is the only mattress in the world designed for the modern bedroom. Unlike traditional, bulky mattresses that cover up your headboard, Sonno is a slim mattress that delivers incredible comfort in the thinnest profile possible.
