Sweet Dreams: Bedroom Inspiration

Browse more than a dozen favorite bedrooms from the pages of Flower, ranging from stately suites to guest retreats, and even an open-air, sleeping porch

Bedroom design calls for immersion. Not a room to be admired from the doorway, the bedroom beckons you inside to comfortably spend hours sleeping, romancing, meditating, reading, and recharging. We spend a third of every day (nearly 3000 hours each year) in our bedrooms (and that’s just sleeping hours), so it comes as no surprise that bedroom decor appeals to personal tastes more strongly than any other room.  Whether your bedroom style is sophisticated, playful, or all about serenity, create a space that says ‘restful’ to you.

We’ve gathered more than a dozen favorite bedrooms from the pages of Flower, ranging from a stately suite to guest retreats, and even an open-air, sleeping porch. Snuggle in and enjoy.
