7 Modern Bedrooms That Are Elegantly Serene

Modern bedrooms may conjure visions of a stark white box with angular furnishings. Some individuals prefer the look, although it's rare. Decoratively, a modern bedroom can be much more.

Designer Elad Yifrach's primary bedroom is a visual “palate cleanser” after a long day of visual stimulation. A neutral grass cloth scatters light like an overexposed snapshot on the walls, and acid-washed sage green linen covers the bed to “kill the vibrant tones.”

PALATE CLEANSER

Designer Darren Jett broke the rules in this Brooklyn apartment's main bedroom. He replaced the conventional plush headboard with a custom Antigua Verde marble bedpost, giving the space a classy look without soft edges or pillows.

PALATABLE OVER PLUSH

Natural elements calm and warm a modern bedroom. In his Lisbon apartment's main bedroom, Matthew Harris added wood paneling and a lavish Gubi pendant.

SUBDUED SCHEME

Who says adults have all the fun? A soft pink canopy adds elegance and joy to this kids' bedroom by ELLE DECOR A-List designer Robert Couturier.

PINK PANACHE

Like this bright Manhattan triplex bedroom, replace the bedding and upholstery for quick drama. Peter Pennoyer and Katie Ridder used Holland & Sherry linens and a vintage Japanese obi among other classic elements like the ancient Murano chandelier.

TACTFUL TEXTILES

Have you seen a more relaxing color? At the Future Perfect's new gallery-slash-home in Los Angeles, founder David Alhadeff chose a unique mocha wall color and golden blanket in the main bedroom.

BROWN IS BACK

Gabriel Hendifar, CEO and cofounder of Apparatus, designed this warm-colored New York City bedroom with unique art. Brass pendants from Apparatus, rose bedcovers by Zak + Fox, and plenty of natural light achieve the latter.
