When it comes to interiors, grey is arguably the new magnolia. In all its shades, grey has dominated home décor in recent years and its popularity shows no signs of slowing. From soft, delicate pastel greys to warm, red or yellow tinged tones and dramatic dark greys, this timeless neutral has become a design staple. None more so than in bedrooms, where grey colour schemes are a firm Instagram favourite.
The key to grey's enduring success is its sheer versatility, as it suits every style of room and can feel fresh and clean, but also cosy and comforting, depending on how its applied. It complements other neutrals brilliantly, but also provides the perfect backdrop to a pop of colour.
With this in mind, we've compiled a collection of the best grey bedroom ideas, featuring the gorgeous bedrooms of some of our favourite influencers.
Luxury hotel chic
Recreate the glamour of a high end hotel room, by combining soft pastel grey fabrics with crisp white bed sheets. In this gorgeous bedroom by @_homebylaura, the panelled wall, plush upholstered headboard and chandelier add a sophisticated edge.
Adding a dark grey feature wall gives a room a bold, contemporary feel, as seen in this bedroom by Rebecca @our_family_at_tulip_house. Use accessories to add pop of vibrant colour – mustard, olive or lime green are good choices to add some zing and lift the mood.
The grey upholstered headboard makes a striking centrepiece for this country cottage bedroom by Amanda @theoldforgecottage. Soft and comforting neutral textiles layered on a monochromatic colour scheme create a cosy yet modern look.
Glam it up

In the pink
Pair a soft grey with blush pink for a delicate, feminine look that isn't too girly, as in this pink and grey bedroom by Lauren and Alex @our_self_build_ni. Add a few well placed metallic accessories in gold or copper to catch the eye and lift the overall look.
