10 Dreamy Southern Bedrooms

Let these soothing sanctuaries inspire you to create a restful, relaxing bedroom retreat that exudes Southern style.

1. Curve Appeal

An elegant, vintage-look floral fabric infuses this French-style boudoir with gentle strokes of color. The rococo gilt headboard and painted chest lend a delightfully feminine touch. 


2. All Aglow 

An antique light fixture casts a subdued gleam over this bedroom’s quiet blue-and-sand-hued linens. The hint of gilding on the settee picks up the gloss of the hardwood floors.  


3. Wash of Color

Barely-there blues set a peaceful, contemplative mood in this Swedish-flavored space. The drapery fabric, bed linens, and wall paint all harmonize for a smooth, seamless flow. 


4. Cheerful Charm

Here, mannerly pinks and rich reds act as neutrals, toned down by the pale greens and whites that envelop the room. Keeping the melange of patterns close to the same scale helps prevent them from feeling too busy.


5. Comfort and Calm

Textural, tone-on-tone neutrals give this master suite its wonderful depth and warmth. Dressmaker detailing on the pillows adds delicate top notes.


6. Luxurious Layers

A hint of Hollywood Regency glamour boosts this bedroom’s panache. Despite the opulent gleam of the headboard, picture framing, and wall mirrors, the medley of luxe materials and the restrained palette create a sense of sink-right-in softness.


7. Bright and Airy

Tongue-and-groove walls cloaked in coastal green foster a low-key air in this Southern bedroom. The mirror amplifies the natural light, making the space feel more expansive.
8. Timeless Tradition

Shades of aqua feel both classic and fresh in this formal yet unstuffy bedroom. The dark wood furniture helps ground the airy palette.
9. Pretty in Pink

Despite its dabs of bright color, this sweet space soothes the spirit. The pink wall color strikes the perfect balance—strong enough to have presence without giving off an overly bold energy. 
10. Subtle Sophistication

The dignified colors of the Oriental rug inspired this khaki-and-gold master bedroom scheme. Generous swaths of cream, such as the headboard, create a bridge between the two hues.
