5 Gray Bedroom Ideas Perfect for the Rainy Season

Cozy up and prepare the sheets


From scattered rain showers to drizzles in the morning—signs that the rainy season has started make us want to crawl back to bed and spend the day wrapped in fluffy sheets. While we’d rather enjoy the calming bed weather, you may want to turn things around by using it as a design inspiration!

Work on a quick bedroom makeover and turn your space into the snuggest haven with shades of gray. Some may think that it’s a boring and cold hue, but with the right décor and accessories—it can transform your space into an inviting and chic room that you wouldn’t trade for anything else. Here are five photos to inspire you:

Don't be afraid to make a statement by painting the wall behind your bed with a dark shade of gray. It helps set the tone of the room and would look perfect when paired with light-colored sheets. Since you don't want your space to be too dark, keep the rest of the walls white or maximize the windows and natural light.

The easiest way to change things up in the bedroom is by investing in quality sheets in varying shades of gray. Reward yourself with a new throw and consider adding a new area rug, too. Keep the space from being boring by incorporating a few pastel hues through pillow covers.

RL Tip: Create a welcoming bed by layering sheets, throws, and fluffy pillows.

The rustic style is know for its warmth and it would be a match made in heaven if you pair a few rustic details with dark gray sheets and pillow covers. If you have a budget to work with, you can ask a trusted carpenter to build a customized headboard or you can create one yourself using wooden pallets.

The classic combo of gray and white gives the room a sophisticated appeal without losing the inviting and cozy vibe. Choose a light gray shade for your walls and liven up the bed with varying shades of white, gray, and a couple of earth tones.

RL Tip: Achieve an extra whimsical vibe by decorating your room with string lights.

For those who aren't sure if they can work with gray walls can opt for a dark green shade to set the mood and give the room a soothing vibe. Incorporate gray shades by choosing sheets and pillow covers in lighter hues to complement the dark base. Given this combination, the green wall shines while still highlighting the inviting bed.
