The airy crispness of fresh white bedding feels especially welcome in the warmer months of the year, when we’re all just trying to stay cool. These 10 popular new bedroom ideas on Houzz – as measured by the number of people who’ve saved them to their Houzz ideabooks from April to June – show the many ways to win with white bedding, in styles from breezy and romantic to clean and contemporary.
Black and white make a classic winning pair, and this high-contrast bedroom celebrates the color combination. Here, the black accent wall sets a backdrop so that the sheets really pop. A black headboard and lampshades recede into the background, as they blend in with the wall, allowing the bedding and gallery wall to stand out as the room’s focal points. A few straw-colored accessories warm up the space, which otherwise maintains the minimalist palette.
Blues, tans and a range of textures all mix in this coastal-inspired East Coast bedroom. The white sheets give the eye a break from color and texture, with the navy blue piping along the edge of the duvet and pillowcases subtly tying in with the rest of the color palette and room style.
3. In Stitches
White bedding doesn’t have to be all anticolor and antipattern. In this Nashville, Tennessee, bedroom, for instance, visible gray thread running through the duvet and pillows accents the bedscape, along with the graphic throws, keeping with the otherwise neutral and solid-toned scheme while adding interest.
4. Background Act
In this bedroom in Los Angeles, white bedding and a mostly white palette for the bed allow the beautiful blue-gray walls to stand out, highlighting them instead of pushing them to the background with a bolder and more graphic bedscape.
5. Wood and White
It’s hard to go wrong with white and wood, and this bedroom executes that combination in a way that feels both cool and serene while also warm and full of life. The crisp white linens pop against the gray-toned wood walls and neutral bedding, making everything appear brighter without creating a stark, sterile appearance.
6. Cottage Casual
If casual summer could be a room, it would be this bedroom, capped off by the perfectly disheveled bed. The oversize white bedding pools on the ground around the low bed, contributing to a cool, effortless vibe and also doubling as a bedskirt.
7. Tropical paradise
In this guest bedroom in Brooklyn, New York, ombré wallpaper and large potted trees, including a fiddleleaf fig, transport overnight visitors to a tropical locale. Baby-pink sheets blend in with the wallpaper, while the white comforter and pillows on top really highlight the accent wall without feeling too themed.
In an otherwise colorful New York apartment, this bedroom is stripped down to white and gray, but not without a bit of flair. A charcoal accent wall painted on the diagonal picks up the colors of the throw pillows and blanket, feeling cool, contemporary and just a little edgy.
9. Lightened Up
In this second room featuring the white-and-wood combination, white bedding plays a very different role, brightening and lightening the heavy wood bed. It also creates a break between the dark wood floors, wood ceiling and wood furniture.
White bedding is a great solution for a bedroom that you want to look put together but not stuffy or as if it’s trying too hard, as we see here. The black trim on the duvet nods to the same rectangular shapes on the wood-paneled walls and makes a great backdrop to introduce a patterned throw pillow.
