Houzz Updates: 8 Lessons From the Most Popular New Bedrooms on Houzz

When looking at 10 of the most popular bedrooms on Houzz during the last three months (as measured by the number of people who have uploaded them to ideabooks), it’s easy to see what makes them so crowd-pleasing. They’re the kind of rooms where we can picture ourselves diving into bed and having a wonderful night’s sleep. So let’s look at what we can take away from each to help make our own bedrooms the ultimate comfort zone.

1. Layer Textures in a Neutral Space

I’m not sure how many times I’ve called a bedroom a “relaxing retreat,” but I wish I had a nickel for each one. Even though it’s a cliche, it’s still what we all want! The bedroom is the place to shake off your day and get a good night’s rest. Where better to do that than in a relaxing retreat?

A neutral color palette is a good strategy for creating a calm atmosphere. But you don’t want it to be so boring that you fall asleep before you even crawl into bed. By using a thoughtful palette of textiles, other textures (check out that grasscloth-wrapped nightstand) and metal finishes in this room, the designer made it feel relaxing yet interesting.

2. Calm Things With Symmetry

Using symmetry is another good way to make things feel calm. Here, matching bedside tables and lamps, wallpapered panels and a flower over the center of the headboard make it easy to tuck in and fall asleep.
