25 Brilliant Ideas for White and Silver Bedrooms
1. Keep it Cozy
Your bedroom should be a restful escape from the rest of the world, and keeping colors and clutter to a minimum gives your room a sense of calm and order, while still feeling fresh and modern. I love this bedroom because it combines clean and simple lines with a variety of textures, proving you can stay minimal without compromising comfort or coziness.
2. Make it Modern
If your style leans more on the modern side, silver is an excellent accent color that works well with other neutrals, especially black and white. Using silver instead of grey brightens up the space and keeps the design fresh and interesting while keeping a modern and streamlined look.
In this example, the silver accents play up the use of squares and circles, giving the bed a modern and luxurious feel.
3. Go Baroque
This bedroom is all about big, over-the-top glamour and style, using this attention-grabbing Baroque-inspired headboard and ornate details. The dark colors and silver accents keep the room from feeling too dated and the whole design screams “modern royalty”!
The white bed against the black and silver background feels dramatic and luxurious, and keeping to a monochrome color scheme keeps the room from feeling too over-the-top.
4. Soften Your Room with Silver
Keep in mind that silver doesn’t need to be reserved for furniture or decor accents – it also looks amazing on bedding! Using the metallic shade for soft furnishings gives an element of glam to any bedspread while keeping your room from feeling too formal. Metallic fabrics like velvet are perfect for a cozy-yet-upscale feel.
5. Sparkle with Sequins
Silver pops against white surfaces on its own, but playing around with different textures is a great way to mix things up. Adding elements like these sequin-covered accent pillows adds sparkle and elegance to your room while still remaining fun. It’s the perfect choice for teens, or anyone who wants to add some playful energy to their design!
6. Continue Your Scheme into the Bathroom
White and silver isn’t just a fantastic color combination for a serene bedroom, it makes bathrooms look clean, tidy and streamlined. If you’ve got an ensuite bathroom, use this opportunity to link the white and silver scheme between the two rooms. I love this example because the white walls and silver accents reflect the light and make the room feel huge and expansive.
Silver and mirror finishes are two sides of the same coin and add an extra bit of drama to a white and chrome finish. This starburst mirror is the perfect addition to any decor scheme that wants to add a bit of a reto, midcentury feel but with a modern twist.
8. Chrome Finishes
The easiest way to brighten up your space is by adding lots of reflective mirrors and chrome surfaces, to help the light bounce around the room better. I love this example of a luxurious room with mirrors as part of the light fixture.
If you’re looking for an attention-grabbing item for your bedroom, consider a classic chandelier in silver. It’s traditional enough to fit into just about any interior design scheme but it never fails to impress. Try pairing it with sleek mirrored furniture for a more eclectic, contemporary look.
10. Shabby Chic
Silver finishes don’t always have to look polished and smooth. If you want the luxurious look of silver without the formality, try looking for items with a more distressed shine. This example has a lamp fixture with a hammered-out finish to help give the room an older, more lived-in look.
11. Monochrome Magic
Sometimes you want to add a modern spin on a classic design scheme, but where to start? For a subtle yet chic update to your bedroom, try decorating the room in several shades of the same color. This baroque-inspired bedroom could feel old-fashioned, but by choosing shades of silver and grey for every piece of decor, it adds a modern twist.
12. Let the Light In
When decorating with silver and white, lighting matters. Check out this luxury bedroom and how the bold and unique chandelier light fixture draws the eye up, and how the silver accents in the room reflect the light throughout. This room feels light, bright, and airy, even though it's not exactly minimal.
13. Silver Cityscape
If you want to capture the big city in your design, white and silver is a perfect color palette to go with. I love this example because it captures the sophistication and modern energy of urban life. The subtle sheen on the blankets and pillows, along with the sleek and minimal decor choices make this the perfect scheme for a big city apartment bedroom.
14. Subtle Sparkle
There's nothing like an all-white bedroom to create a classic and timeless decor scheme. Even better, keeping the room simple and white means even small touches make a big impact. I love this example of a white bedroom with minimalist bedding and decor, with a simple striped detail on the accent pillow. What a beautiful and classic way to add some interest to your bedding set!
15. Metallic Wall Art
When adding silver accents to your bedroom, don't forget about the walls! This example shows a simple, modern wall piece that offers a subtle sheen without going over the top. Even though it's a simple piece, it draws the eye in because of its metallic finish and adds just a little bit of glamour to this otherwise casual bedroom.
16. Inside Outside
I adore this example of a white and silver bedroom that shows off a lovely outdoor view! The contrast between the cold tones of the white and silver interior decor and the bright greens of the outside environment is striking. The designer allows the outdoor view to be a main focal point in the room by not covering up the windows, and as a result the room feels warmer and more welcoming.
17. Silver Furniture
This bedside table is absolutely gorgeous and could fit in any bedroom, not only a white and silver one. This could be an excellent DIY project for those looking to add a bit of glam to their bedroom design; simply find a wooden table and sand, prime, and paint! I love that the silver finish makes this classic piece feel unique and high-end, but still fits right into a more casual space.
18. Less is More
When most people think of bedroom decor, they think of a comfortable and cozy room full of personal items and furniture. But for some, like the designer of this example, less is truly more. This bedroom makes a huge impact because of its stark, minimalist layout; the plain and austere feeling is made even more pronounced because of the white, grey, and silver color scheme, making the room feel ultramodern.
19. Add a Pop of Color
White and silver is a classic color combination on its own, but when you add just a simple splash of another color, it takes it to a whole new level. This example shows a lovely bedroom with mostly white, black, and silver accents, but the few bright pops of this lovely salmon color add extra impact.
The best part about a white and silver scheme is that you can add any color you want and it will look amazing. Try it for yourself!
20. Make the Most of Small Spaces
When you have a small bedroom you want to do anything you can to open up the space and make it feel brighter and bigger. I love this example because the designer makes great use of the large window to allow as much natural light in as possible.
By keeping the walls and decor white and then adding shiny silver accents to reflect the light, the room feels larger and more open; it's an excellent way to make the most out of a smaller space.
21. Paint it Black
Decorating a white and silver room doesn't mean you have to stick to white for your walls; on the contrary, feel free to experiment with more dramatic colors since your decor is classic and neutral. This example shows how you can make a big statement with black walls and still have the room feel bright and luxurious.
One way to keep your room from feeling too dark or cold, even with black walls, is to keep your lighting soft and warm-toned, and also don't be afraid of those shiny silver pieces that reflect light!
22. Embrace Eastern Influences
I love this exciting take on a Moroccan-inspired guest bedroom! Traditionally, when you think of a Middle-eastern design scheme, you think of rich, warm, dramatic colors and soft gold tones, but this design turns that idea on its head for a stunning, ultra-modern twist on a classic look.
For a classic guest bedroom design that feels both luxurious and serene, consider adding elements like these beautiful silver pendant lamps and a wooden room divider screen.
23. Make a Statement in Silver
Sometimes finding that one perfect statement piece is really what you need to bring your room together. This fun and upbeat bedroom in a city apartment shows off a beautiful vintage lighting fixture as the main focal piece in the room, while the whitewashed bricks in the background give the design a youthful feel.
With the star-shaped fixture as the main focus, the bedroom itself can be simple and minimal, which is great when you want your bedroom to be a calm and relaxing environment.
24. Go for Simple and Stylish
This is a lovely example of how to keep things simple without While keeping the colors all the same, the designer is able to include lots of different patterns and textures to keep things interesting. The grey coloring not only compliments the silver decor elements like the throw pillow and the lamps, but also the reflective surfaces like the mirror. This helps reflect light through the space and keep it from feeling too dark and small.
25. Add Some Rustic Charm
White and silver bedrooms can make you think of glamorous and modern interiors, but if classic country style is more your speed, consider incorporating the color scheme into your farmhouse-style design.
The gently whitewashed walls and vintage silver hanging lamps in this example feel right at place in any country home. With its light colors and natural textures, this bedroom example feels calm and welcoming, the perfect place to rest your head after a long day.
