At its heart, earthy design is all about bringing the outside in. Whether that’s in really overt ways or by using subtle touches, there are so many ways that you can nod to nature with your bedroom décor.

Far from being confined to neutral pallets, earthy décor brings in a range of colours and materials found in nature – from rich terracotta and muddy brown to mossy green and blush pink.

When we invite the natural world into our homes, the result is a peaceful and serene interior that’s perfect for relaxing and unwinding. And we could all certainly do with more of that.

Ready to be inspired? These 25 beautiful earthy bedroom décor ideas will show you how to create your very own escape.

 

1. Layer Neutral Tones

Soothing and light, neutral colours are a fantastic way to achieve a calming, earthy look in your bedroom. Neutrals are commonly found in the natural world, so it makes sense for them to provide a base for your scheme.

Choose a mix of different neutral tones, such as creamy beige, rich brown, warm wood and crisp white. Layer different shades through your fabrics and linens for a relaxed feel with plenty of depth.

2. Choose Wooden Furniture

It goes without saying that organic materials are an essential part of earthy home decor. Wooden elements provide not only an authentically natural look but offer texture, too.

Frame your bed with wooden bedside tables to get the look in your home. Opt for fuss-free, unfinished wood to create a relaxed and rustic vibe.

3. Bring In Metallics

If a pared-back neutral look isn’t your cup of tea, balance nature with a touch of glam in your bedroom. Accents of gold and bronze look fantastic next to earthen tones – and they’re materials found in nature, so your space will still be in keeping with the theme.

Look for stylish gold wall lights or bedside lamps, or bring in subtle metallic elements through the legs of your furniture and accessories.

4. Roll Out a Woven Rug

There are many benefits to having a rug in your bedroom – from comfort, to style, to adding a pop of colour, they’re a great way to complete the look. A great rug can also help ground your space and provide an extra element to the room.

Choose a woven rug to add texture and turn up those earthy vibes. Natural jute is a great option for bringing nature into your space and complementing earthy decor. You could even layer several rugs across the room to get a relaxed, bohemian feel.

5. Use Houseplants

No earthy bedroom design is complete without a few houseplants. They bring any space to life with vibrant tones and help to provide a calm and soothing environment that’s perfect for relaxing.

Make use of the entire room with a variety of plants placed at different, from trailing plants on high shelves to desk cacti to large potted plants on the floor. If you don’t have a green thumb, you could use artificial plants (I won’t tell anyone if you don’t).

6. Add Some Baskets

Handwoven baskets complement an earthy scheme beautifully. Organic materials like seagrass, wicker and rattan make a brilliant addition to any interior.

Adding a mix of woven baskets will create texture and provide versatile storage options in your bedroom.

7. Create Texture With Concrete

You would be right in thinking there is nothing natural about concrete, but the colours and textures it brings can give your interior a raw and natural look.

It’s hugely on-trend right now, from concrete walls to basins, but you can add it to your bedroom in simple ways, too. Look for stylish concrete lamps and planters to bring new textures to your space.

8. Get Creative With Paint

Maybe you want to embrace earthy interiors but crave a splash of colour that’s bolder than neutrals. If you want to do something different with your space, colour blocking could be for you.

Colour blocking is a fantastic design technique for giving your room a truly unique and intriguing look. And there are lots of exciting ways to experiment – from painting shapes on your headboard wall to painting your upper and lower walls different colours. Choose warm, earthy tones like blush and terracotta for a cosy, cocooning feel in your bedroom. Or, opt for a rich green and beige to create a serene space perfect for sleep.

9. Install Wooden Panelling

If you’re looking to add some natural earthy elements to your space, wooden panelling is a great way to do it. Panelling brings character, visual interest and flair to any room of the house.

In your bedroom, why not use it to accentuate your bed by installing panelling on your headboard wall? A half-wall of vertical slat panels will give your space an interesting and contemporary look. Keep your panels natural wood for an organic feel or paint your panels the same shade as your wall to add subtle texture.

10. Arrange Dried Flowers

There’s a lot to love about dried flowers – and I, for one, am pleased they’re trending in a big way. These low-maintenance beauties bring nature, texture and depth to your space. And there’s no limit to the shades and styles available.

Place a vase of dried flowers on your bedside drawers or dressing table to complement your earthy décor. Opt for a plain glass or neutral ceramic vase to let your blooms shine.

11. Introduce Leather

The key to earthy interior is to use a range of organic materials in your space. In neutral shades of brown and beige, leather is a brilliant way to enhance your nature-inspired space.

Look for a timeless piece, like a mid-century brown leather accent chair or bench to create another focal point in your bedroom. If you’re looking to replace your bed, you could also opt for a leather headboard or bedframe for a durable and stylish solution.

12. Wrap up in Warm Tones

Our bedrooms are some of the most important rooms in the house. They’re used for work, leisure, relaxation and that all-important sleep, so it makes sense to choose décor that creates a cosy and inviting vibe.

Turn your bedroom into an alluring sanctuary with warm, earthy tones. Wrap yourself up in notes of terracotta, orange, gold and beige across your walls, furniture and fabrics. If you prefer white walls, add warm shades by layering blankets and cushions on your bed. If you have space, a terracotta velvet accent chair will create another handy spot to perch, as well as create interest.

13. Accessorise, Accessorise, Accessorise

Earthy decor is as much about a feeling as aesthetics. The bedroom accessories on display have the power to shape the overall vibe of your room.

For instance, a collection of earthen pots and vases is an easy way to bring instant warmth to your space. Likewise, woven planters, fluffy pampas plumes and baskets can create a rustic, relaxed feel.

 

14. Get a Woven Chair

A woven rattan or cane chair is the ideal accompaniment to a nature-inspired space. And introducing a chair is a quick and easy way to transform your space. Crafted from natural materials, it nods to the outside world and embraces boho home decor.

Choose a woven accent chair and place it in an underused corner of your room to make the most of your space. Throw over a faux-fur rug for texture and extra cosy feels.

15. Hang Wall Baskets

Love handwoven materials? Why stop at furniture! Create your own bespoke art installation with handwoven baskets and placemats on your bedroom walls.

Arrange items of different sizes on your headboard wall to fill your space with character and make a real feature of your bed.

16. Bring in Macrame

COLE KEISTER

I am a big fan of macrame. It’s versatile enough to suit any home and any interior style, but naturally, it’s perfect for earthy wall art and accessories. While it’s hugely popular now, this is not macrame’s first rodeo – it was commonplace in the Victorian era and resurged in the 1970s, before making another recent comeback in boho home decor.

Bring macrame into your space with wall hangings, woven hanging planters or even woven shelves. If you want to make a decorative statement, choose a large piece of macrame to hang above your bed to create a beautiful feature.

17. Paint it Green

Nothing says nature like beautiful green tones. Famed for its calming properties, green is a popular choice for bedrooms, creating a relaxed and soothing environment ideal for unwinding.

Create an earthy paradise by painting your bedroom walls green. Rich, deeper hues will create a cocooning feel, while paler tones of mint and sage will freshen up your space. Complement your green décor with neutral bedlinen and light wood furniture for contrast.

18. Choose Prints of Nature

Finding the right earthy wall art for your room can sometimes feel tricky. But if you really want to bring the natural world into your room, you can’t go wrong with framed prints of trees and plants.

You can choose something quite literal, such as striking landscape photography, or more abstract drawings of flora. When it comes to the frames, opt for natural wood to cement that earthy style.

19. Expose Your Floorboards

Natural wood flooring is a fantastic choice for earthy bedrooms. Simplistic and stylish, exposed floorboards provide a relaxed aesthetic that suits any home.

Plus, natural wood can bring character and warmth – lifting up those old carpets will instantly transform your bedroom. But if you don’t have floorboards, there are lots of alternatives to get the look – from solid oak planks to luxury vinyl.

20. Layer Organic Fabrics

Create a comfortable and relaxing feel by layering organic fabrics in your space. Natural materials like linen, wool, silk, cotton, leather and fur will help you to curate the perfect earthy bedroom.

Look to include a mixture in your bedding, throws and blankets. Choose fabrics in a mix of neutral tones to ensure a cohesive look with depth.

21. Add a Touch Of Pink

Pink mightn’t be the very first shade you think of when you picture earthy tones, but it’s actually a fantastic choice if you’re looking to nod to nature with your décor.

Blush pink is commonly found in the natural world and works wonderfully well with a range of other earthy tones – from green to terracotta to creamy beige. Add a splash of pink to your décor with some throws, bedlinen or a blush velvet accent chair.

22. Invest in a Statement Bed

Are you in the market for a new bed? Then think about upgrading to a statement woven one to create a gorgeous centrepiece in your space.

A beautiful natural cane or rattan bedframe is bang on trend and is an excellent choice for an earthy bedroom. Sturdy and versatile, it will stand the test of time, however your interior style changes in future.

23. Use Faux Fur

Using a mix of different textures is key to building an authentically earthy space. Fur looks fantastic when combined with other natural elements like wood, cotton and silk and brings a certain luxury to your bedroom.

Although I would never advocate the use of real fur, there are lots of fantastic imitation furs available on the market today. From faux fur throws and rugs to footstools, there are many ways to create this cosy, comfy vibe in your bedroom.

24. Have Fun With Pattern

Bring your bedroom to life with a splash of pattern. Whether your bedroom is light and neutral or deep and rich, a little pattern will offer a stylish contrast.

Playful animal prints are a great way to have fun with earthy design. The trick is not to overdo it – a statement cushion or patterned throw will be just the right amount, as this modern decor proves.

25. Choose Muted Shades

When choosing earth tones for your space, opt for muted colours to create a calm and soothing feel. Softer shades of green, red, brown and pink will ensure your space is cosy and inviting.

Introduce a selection of complementary muted colours to your bedroom using sheets, cushions and throws. For example, pair muted oranges and reds with pale blue, and keep your walls a crisp white for contrast.
