Crushed velvet beds have a lot of potential in interior design.
Whether you want to decorate in the lush glam style, want a fairytale-inspired bedroom, or want to create a simple minimalist look—you can do it all with velvet.
Your velvet bed is a powerful piece that forms a base to create an elegant moody environment.
Yet, how do you work around this statement piece in your bedroom?
Regardless of whether you’ve chosen a grey, champagne or black crushed velvet bed from our collection, the bed is your starting point in bedroom interior design—you can build around your bed to showcase your style, design taste and personality.
Choose your aesthetic first, then experiment with colours, unique furniture, accessories, and finally, add personal items to make the room your own.
We’ve broken down a couple of decor ideas that’ll inspire you and help you include the right bedroom elements to turn your house into a home.
Dark, moody bedroom designs create relaxing, modern and elegant spaces. The key elements of a moody bedroom design are:
It might seem counterintuitive, but a dark palette works with dark furniture and dark walls. Then, everything you put in front of the dark palette should have a a light colour (from bedding to carpet). This will allow it to stand out.
Make sure that you have contrasting furniture (e.g. white bedside tables, pillows or blankets) and accents such as golden or metal details on accessories to create a more elegant interior.
Expert Tip: To achieve a cohesive and intentional look, consistently use one accent colour (gold, chrome, silver, white, black). You can add accents with mirrors, picture frames, lamps and vases.
Remember: a moody bedroom still allows the use of colour. Don’t limit yourself to all black—you can work with dark green, blue or purple too.

A minimalist bedroom is an elegant design that calls for essentials only, but it doesn’t have to be basic or unwelcoming.
To make a room warm and cosy but in the minimalist's spirit:
You can add plants, light fixtures, memorabilia, cosy blankets, and carpet elements to create an inviting room—as long as you don’t clutter the room with too much stuff.
Expert Tip: Create volume with your blankets and pillows to make a room feel and look lived in. Put large and smaller sized pillows on your bed and leave the blanket at the bottom of the bed.
Meaningful photos and decorations are great to include in your bedroom interior too. They bring out your personality and make the room feel warm.

Expert Tip: Instead of matching furniture that can look overpowering with velvet, buy unique and contrasting pieces to complement the bed and create a variety of shapes.
Including different materials contributes to your bedroom looking high end and luxurious. Combine velvet with satin or silk linens, soft cotton comforters and a carpet.

Our lighter crushed velvet beds, such as our grey and champagne beds, go well with light pastel tones. The key to this style is choosing your pastel colour shades and combining them with natural elements such as stone, plants and wood.
Expert Tip: Work with three colour hues maximum. Use different shades of these colours on elements that you can change, such as bedding and decoration.
If you choose a couple of colours, it’s easier to achieve cohesive bedroom decor and match colour hues that work together well.
Mix pastels with earth tones to create a cohesive bedroom interior and avoid the bedroom being overwhelming.
Painting the walls white, neutral, or in one of the pastel colours can work.
Add a variety of distinct tones as you decorate as they will blend and make everything uniform. Introduce colour through other furniture and accessories.
