Personal style and aesthetic preferences aside, we can all agree that minimalism is having a major moment—and science gives it even more clout. For example, according to this study at the University of Southern California, cluttered homes are linked to increased stress levels and depressed moods. So there really is a life-changing magic behind the KonMari method. And since your bedroom is the place you go to restore, relax, and reflect, minimalism can be especially impactful there.
We’re not saying you should just throw everything in your bedroom away and it call it day. In fact, minimalist design doesn’t translate to stark and boring. It’s about scaling back to create calming and thoughtful spaces. So we found thirty three examples of minimalist bedrooms that the Marie Kondos of the world and maximalists with a penchant for anything extra will both love. Read on for thirty three minimalist bedroom ideas and designs, from colorful to monochrome and everything in between.

1. House of Blues
Blues are dressing up more interiors. Several paint firms have chosen shades of blue as their top paint choice for 2019, including Behr with its “Blueprint”. Blueprint is a mid-tone blue that is described as warmer than denim but softer than navy. Sherwin Williams has selected “Reflecting Pool,” as part of its hot color wheel for 2019. Blues are also popping up more often as accent colors and in home accessories such as pillows, artwork, and throws.
2. Back to Black
Classic black is showing up in fixtures, stainless-steel appliances, and even cabinets. “Black makes a strong visual statement in any room and has been found in both shiny and matte finishes,” Chorew said. Black hardware is also showing strong in competition against the more traditional rubbed bronze, brass, and chrome finishes.
3. Odes to the Southwest
“Southwest design is coming back,” Chorew said. And it’s not isolated to the region it comes from, either. In a nod to that trend, Sherwin Williams chose Cavern Clay as its 2019 color of the year. The warm, terracotta color can be used in “a backdrop color, welcoming dining room, or kitchen when paired with bright tiles, warm stone, and sculptural greenery,” Sherwin Williams noted in a recent press release announcing the choice. “Complementary materials include leather, simple woodgrains, and indigenous cacti in contemporary, sleek gardening planters.”
4. The Terrazzo Comeback
Terrazzo, a hard, stone-like composite material, is most easily identified by the presence of those signature speckles within. It was a popular flooring in the 1980s but now it’s coming back and expected to be even more versatile in 2019, Chorew said. “It once was just used in floors, but now it’s coming back but on countertops,” she said, adding that it will likely chip away at marble’s popularity in countertops.
5. A More Natural Look
Blending the indoors with the outdoors has been a hot trend for the last few years, but now the idea is getting a boost thanks to accessories that are culled from more natural elements to complete the look. “Rattan, wood, and other natural fibers are finding their way indoors and helping to blur the lines from the inside and outside,” Chorew said.
