A bedroom is among the most personal spaces in a home — it’s where you start your day and turn in for the night — so getting its comfort and style right can make a big difference.
The designers of the most popular bedroom photos, presented in order below, got the balance right with selected artwork, color, and other decors that speaks to the interests and tastes of the room’s occupants.
1. Ultimate Retreat
While both the boy’s and girl’s bedrooms in this Southern California house by Shannon Ggem Design also caught the attention of readers, it’s the home’s master bedroom that’s the most-saved bedroom photo of the year so far.
The bedroom inspiration began with the channel-tufted upholstered headboard that extends all the way to the ceiling. The custom tufted settee at the foot of the bed is upholstered in a cotton velvet that brings in leafy color and some 1940s-inspired design.
2. Lovely Lilac
The master bedroom in this Edina, Minnesota, home by Martha O’Hara Interiors features a lofted ceiling covered in white shiplap and a sculptural black metal chandelier selected to pop against that backdrop and draw the eye up. The bench at the foot of the tufted bed is upholstered in a windowpane fabric. The lilac walls provide a cool, calming vibe.

3. Rustic and Refined
This rustic yet refined master bedroom in Atlanta was created by the team at Meriwether Design Group. Wood ceiling beams add a warm, organic feel while the black iron chandelier provides a more refined aesthetic. A headboard trimmed with brass nailheads and a leather bench at the foot of the bed finish off the look.
4. Industrial Glam
Designer Dane Austin says this master bedroom in a Boston loft features a design scheme that blends femininity, sophistication, and the bling of Art Deco with earthy, natural accents. The velvet headboard in aubergine pops against the light gray wall and the crystal chandelier adds a luxurious touch.
5. Wow-Worthy Wall
The team at Niche Interiors created a custom plaster treatment designed to mimic the look of wood planks for the feature wall in this bedroom in California’s wine country. A contemporary tufted bed and a pair of task-style wall sconce complete the stylish scene.
6. Color Splash
Shannon Ggem Design also transformed the daughter’s bedroom in the same Southern California house with similarly stunning results. “I always involve kids in the design of their spaces,” Ggem says. “When this girl told me she loved the look of a candy store, aqua, and this deep purple, I thought, ‘Yeah!’ ” The first thing the designer found was the beautiful wallpaper, which she then paired with a complementary rug and bedding.
This boy’s bedroom in a Southern California home by Shannon Ggem Design speaks to the occupant’s interests. The wall shelf on the left is shaped like a mountain and the print is a vintage-style surfing poster. “When I talked with their son, I found out that he liked surfing and snowboarding, and a shade of green we started calling ‘rugby green,’ ” Ggem says.

8. Stellar Storage
Here, floor-to-ceiling shutter-style closets painted in a rich, creamy tone caught the attention of many Houzz users. The Moscow bedroom by Ariana Ahmad Interior Design also includes a dusty blue bedroom wall and a brass Sputnik-style chandelier.
9. Soothing Shade
A serene shade of blue stars in this Austin, Texas, bedroom by Anne Grandinetti of Mark Ashby Design. “The wife’s favorite color is blue, so it made sense to paint the bedroom walls in a soothing shade of the color,” Grandinetti says.
The windows feature custom valances and curtains in a multicolored stripe. An ochre velvet armchair stationed next to the original wood-burning fireplace makes for a cozy spot to read a book.

10. Artistic Allure
A signed framed print by artist Charles Bibbs dictated the color palette for this New Rochelle, New York, master bedroom by Tamu Green of Lux Pad Interiors.
The bed is covered in a beautiful crushed blue velvet that picks up the blue in the art, while the blush-colored paint on the walls complements the colors in the piece.
