Red can bring so many looks to your boudoir, but none of them are timid. If you’ve been sleeping on ideas for a bold and daring bedroom decor scheme, then take a wander through these 51 inspirational red bedroom ideas. Discover the myriad of ways you can incorporate this strong yet versatile colour, from full walls of colour saturation to bedrooms with sparing red accents, furniture, bedding and paint effects.

Match a dramatic red accent wall with one hero piece of furniture. This beautiful embossed feature wall lends its deep red tone to a bedroom chair by the window, where it is framed by sheer white drapes. Note how two ceiling lights echo the circular pattern of the feature wall too, to build a rippling shape theme in the room.
Let red rein from ceiling to floor. The fiery orange-red wall paint in this bedroom scheme follows on from a solid red ceiling. A deeper red headboard overlays the paintwork, and stretches the colour out over pale wood flooring. White elements clean up the colour scheme, whilst golden accents add luxe.

Try out new textures. This red tufted headboard merges with a flocked fleur de lis wallpaper of the same bright shade, each defined only by their deep texture. A border of flat white space is left around the colourful combo to allow the effect to breathe.
Designer: Dominique Coulon & Associés
Go maximalist in a minimalist setting. When decorating a pared back minimalist bedroom that’s all clear of clutter, colour can apply all of the personality to the room. Bleed a red ceiling into 360º red walls, doors, furniture, essentials and floor. The window reveals in this all out red room have been coated in a light reflective white paint to prevent the colour block from feeling oppressive.
Designer: GG And Grance
Pick a pattern. A patterned red bedroom curtain and cushion set will add a cohesive colour story to even a plain room. However, you can amp up the effect of your new home decor elements by colour matching your wall paint to their pattern. Take a sample of your fabric to the paint mixing desk at your local DIY store for a bespoke match.

If bright red isn’t your bag, then how about a gothic dark red bedroom. This amazing burgundy boiserie encased space is dramatised even further by red lighting around its deeply decorative cornice.
Designer: Convert Construction
A touch of theatrics. Heavy plush red curtains put on quite the performance at the windows of a monochrome bedroom design. They could also be used as a portiere in a studio space, or to conceal the messy contents of an open fronted wardrobe.

Red paint doesn’t have to fill a whole bedroom wall. Grab yourself a spirit level and a roll of masking tape to create a fashion forward quirky colour block. Asymmetric placements look best–a boserie or wainscot panelled wall works even better.
Visualizer: Anastasia Kruseva
The red paint effect in this bedroom has been applied loosely around the lower quarter of the walls, to match two-tone window drapes. A red bed base and red bedding set flood more colour into the base of the room.

Use colour to define the sleep zone in a large room. Applying a block of colour around the bed makes the sleep zone feel more contained and cosy within a wide open space. A red and black Yin and Yang shelving unit ties the colour of these walls and bed together. A white modern chandelier stands out in form, rather than colour.

Limit colour to the upholstery. Whether its a red upholstered headboard, an ottoman, a vanity stool, a red bed set, curtains or all of those things, limiting yourself to one single fabric ensures a perfectly matching ensemble that evokes a high end hotel look.

If you’re living in a rented space then it can be tricky to create your dream colour scheme if the landlord wants their walls left alone, but don’t be discouraged. A red bed frame and bed set, red bedroom rug and colour coordinated accessories can provide all that’s needed for a rich colour scheme.
Designer: Paul Coudamy
Give walls the smooth and glossy look…
… Or colour coat corrugated iron for a characterful crimped feature wall, or industrial style wardrobe doors.

A non-upholstered headboard wall presents the possibility of an easy colour change at a future date, at the low cost of just a tin of paint. Beading has been used to create a geometric design across the headboard wall of this red and brown bedroom scheme.
