Whether you live in the heart of a city, at the base of a mountain or on the edge of a rocky coastline, taking inspiration from what’s outside your window is sometimes the best way to decorate your bedroom.

According to House to Home, channelling the outdoors into your decor can often compliment a space or provide a necessary contrast.


Rural landscape: A rural landscape calls for reclaimed-wood, be it as a feature wall or as furnishings.

Lake view: Soft, watery blues and creams compliment the serenity just outside the window. It feels cool, refreshed and breezy, just like the lake.

City skyline: Reflect the urban surroundings and opt for an industrial feel. Try using an over-sized world or city map as a bed head.

Bush: Corner windows team perfectly with light woods and soft cream hues, especially with green trees on the other side of the glass.

Rugged coast: Take homage from the surrounding rocky terrain and add a stone wall effect to your bedroom walls.
