I’ve been seeing a lot of extremely bold, colorful bedrooms in American and European magazines lately. I used to think a bedroom should have peaceful colors and soothing patterns, to help your body and mind relax. But that belief has been thrown out the window. These images below from Lonny Magazine and various designers really prove that bedrooms can be just as bold as the rest of the house. Forget soothing palettes to go to sleep – bring it all on! I love these bedrooms, but I’m wondering…would you be able you to sleep well in them?
Zebra walls and ceiling anyone? Beautiful bedroom suite from Lonny.
Bright bedside glamour by LA designer Betsy Burnham.
Blue, orange and yellow, it’s got it all.
I love this fun, colorful bedroom. The ceiling wallpaper makes it unusual. Would that help you fall asleep…or would you start fretting about your day?
Design by Lee Kleinhelter from Lonny Magazine. Again bold graphics. Reminds me of the wall paper I had as a kid, except mine was yellow and white horizontal stripes. The pendant is a lamp shade hanging from a vintage chain. Cool idea.

We all know Jonathan Adler likes his bedrooms bold.
A rock n’roll Hollywood regency look by Jamie Rummerfield.
Design by Jennifer Dyer. This one is a lot calmer, but still has pops of color and pattern.
Happy and fun for sure…could you sleep peacefully in here? Jonathan Adler meant business when he said ” designs for anti depressive living”. Might be a good way to give up caffeine – you would be “jolted awake”.
Red…hmm…I don’t know if I want red in my bedroom, but this is chic and elegant.
I’m wondering — are there any of these bedrooms you couldn’t sleep in?
