Decorating a bedroom in shades of grey and white is a great way to achieve a classic and sophisticated look.

Grey is the perfect neutral colour as it can be calm and serene or dramatic and moody, depending on the shade you choose. When paired with a white palette, it can create a look that is both clean and classic.

If you're not sure how to bring these two colours together, the following grey and white bedroom ideas will show you how, and inspire your decorative design.

Modern Grey and White Bedroom

Although there are many traditional bedroom style elements within this grey and white bedroom design, such as the extravagant chandelier and built-in wardrobes. Much of the space has a great deal more modern feel, especially the floor-to-ceiling padded headboard panels and low-level grey velvet-covered bed frame.

A large light grey area rug cleverly zones the space where the bed sits, and stops it otherwise being lost in a sea of herringbone flooring. There is a definite and deliberate move towards minimalism here, with only two grey furniture side tables and a few flower-filled vases on show for decoration.

Aesthetic White and Grey Bedroom

The aesthetics of this elegant bedroom design have certainly been thought out to a greater degree than many of my other grey and white bedroom ideas. Although many are quite subtle touches, like the irregular white and grey pattern in the area rug and grey wooden muted tones in the furniture, they all help to add a further layer to the design aesthetic.

The soft grey colour of the walls, headboard, striped cushions and blanket, next to the contrasting darker grey of the throw, help to tie the theme together and make sure that soft greys are without doubt the star of the show.

Modern Country Grey and White Bedroom

Grey and white bedrooms can sometimes feel cold and clinical, but if you add in the right colour tones, decoration and texture, much of this can be negated.

The traditional grey wainscot panelling, white walls and white bedside drawers, that echo a similar style, work seamlessly against the more modern look of the quilted square patterned duvet cover and grey pin-stripes edging the pillows and cushions.

The opulent glass wall lights, stunning chandelier and other decorative items, all add to the modern country aesthetic and bring this interior design theme to life.

The all-in-one nature of furniture in this small bedroom space cleverly incorporates the headboard and bed, mirrors and side tables. This concept certainly makes the most of the small bedroom space available, whilst creating a modern and cosy aesthetic.

As with any room decor, the mirrors help to bring light into the small space and give it a greater feeling of size. The sumptuous cushions, pillows and fluffy blanket all add texture and softness for a cosy and comfortable spot to relax in.

Lighting has also been well considered in this bedroom design, with ambient lighting being used on the ceiling, task lighting for the bedside tables and decorative LED lights to highlight the frame of the furniture.
