Year In Review: Revisit The 10 Best Bedrooms of 2021

At the end of each year, we like to look back at the design archives and get inspired all over again by the designs our team created this past year.

2021 has been another strange one, full of ups and downs. As a result, many of us took solace in our bedrooms. These spaces not only served as places to crash at the end of each day, but they offered a space to relax and recharge. Bedrooms are important rooms—now, more than ever.

Today, we’re looking back at our most-loved bedroom designs of 2021!

1. Modern Coastal Bedroom

Coastal design is known for its relaxing and laid-back nature. We brought this style to life in a bedroom design, giving it a modern spin. Various shades of blue add a fresh and relaxing feel to this space. Modern furniture lines give this bedroom a contemporary and trendy vibe that still feels very approachable.

2. California Casual Bedroom

California casual style is all about refined-but-relaxed living. Sounds like an ideal style for a bedroom, right? In this design, a symmetrical layout elevates the space so it feels formal but still approachable. Modern elements mix with eclectic accents and rustic furniture to create the ultimate haven. And a bold, patterned rug grounds space, while the rest stays neutral and serene.

3. Eclectic and Glam Bedroom

If you want your bedroom to make a major statement about your personality, take inspiration from this eclectic glam bedroom. The bold teal wallpaper sets the vibe in this space, giving it a major eclectic spin. It’s accented by sculptural elements, which add some glamorous flair—like the suede chair in spice, the fluted nightstand, and that stunning table lamp. The cane bed helps ground the space, while also popping against the wallpaper.

4. Miley Cyrus’ Bedroom

Inspired by her home tour in Architectural Digest, we recreated Miley Cyrus’ LA home in Modsy 3D. We love this dark, moody, and bold design based on her real-life bedroom. It embodies 80s glam at its finest, with contemporary accents to balance out the look. We love all the sculptural elements and how this bedroom is loaded with luxurious textures—making it a true retreat.

5. French Country Bedroom

French Country design is sophisticated, feminine, and warm. And we thought these were perfect attributes for a bedroom retreat. Ornate details throughout the space—from the carved furniture with turned legs to the scalloped, camelback headboard and beaded chandelier—create an elevated rustic look with loads of elegance.

6. Transitional Boho Bedroom

This curved rattan bed is a total showstopper. Combined with teal walls, it gives this bedroom a definite boho vibe. The pastel color palette feels fresh and youthful, while transitional accent furniture grounds the room in a timeless sensibility.

7. Modern Rustic Bedroom

This bedroom design brings to life the popular modern rustic design style. A simple color palette keeps the space relaxing, with pops of black adding just the right amount of contrast. Organic textures like caning, jute, copper, and natural wood give this bedroom depth and visual interest, making it oh-so-inviting.

8. Japandi-Inspired Bedroom

With the growth of the Japandi design trend, it only made sense to bring this style to life in a comfortable, organic bedroom. A neutral color palette with a moodier edge makes this space feel sophisticated and zen. Streamlined furniture adds to the minimal feel, while earthy accents and sculptural plants bring in the natural aspect of Japandi design.

9. Textural Transitional Bedroom

Transitional design can feel very relaxing—but at times it’s a bit too subdued. To give this transitional bedroom a bit more visual interest, style, and depth, we added a variety of textural accents throughout the space. To keep the bedroom feeling soothing and timeless, we opted for a simple-but-classic color palette of creams and blues, mixed with natural hues from wood and natural fibers.

10. Eclectic English-Inspired Bedroom

This year, we helped Kate Arends, the blogger behind Wit & Delight, redesign her primary bedroom—and we’re obsessed with how it turned out. It’s a very unique and eclectic space which combines traditional and modern elements for a space that feels like a streamlined take on English country. The rich tones found in the mahogany wood bed, sage green walls, and black accents add depth to this space, while the mix of patterns is both tasteful and charming.

Get the Look of Miley Cyrus’ LA Home (Designed by Her Mama, Tish Cyrus)

When we saw Miley Cyrus’ Los Angeles home tour in Architectural Digest, we immediately got thinking about how we could translate her style into a more approachable look. Her home, designed by her mother Tish, is boisterous, bold, and glamorous. It’s definitely a rock star’s home, with a look that really can’t be replicated.

However, there are some design principles and style elements in her home that you can definitely bring into your own home. It has a lot of modernist 80s design style throughout, with bright colors and bold geometric shapes. There’s definitely a maximalist approach at play in the styling. And it also has a good dose of Hollywood Glam style, which is a classic look in Los Angeles interior design. See? All elements you can apply in your own home if you feel so inclined.

So, we dreamed up how we could bring Miley’s style to life in a living room, bedroom, dining room, and sitting area. Ready to bring the look home? Read on for designer tips on how to get the look of Miley’s LA home.

Get the Look: Miley’s Living Room

Miley’s living room is about as funky as they come! Loud, bold, and poppy, it almost feels like an electrified space with all of the accents, shapes, and colors in the space. At a glance, the reproduction of her living room might read glam, but there’s a seriously eclectic mix of colors, patterns, and wall art that gives this space a ton of personality.

How to Get the Look

Go Glam: When picking out foundational furniture, like a sofa and accent chairs, lean into Hollywood Glam style. Velvet upholstery, channel tufting, bold jewel tones, and animal prints will give your living room a luxe foundation.

Try Out Minimalism: Much of Miley’s house is pretty maximalist. But with the bold foundational furniture in this living room, minimal accent furniture helps balance out the look to make it more approachable. So, opt for simple, clean lines in coffee tables, lamps, and side tables.

Have Some Fun: It’s obvious with her home’s design that Miley likes having fun. So, follow suit and let your funky side shine through in a Miley-inspired living room! Glamorous furniture can feel serious, so bring in some brevity through a playful collection of artwork, as well as funky patterns and bold furniture colors. You should even opt for a more casual layout so that even the arrangement of the room feels laid back and fun.

Get the Look: Miley’s Bedroom

Miley’s bedroom is a glam space that has high-contrast details and maximalist statements. Dark and moody, it gives off some major 80s revival vibes. The result is a dramatic and luxurious space that’s the perfect room to get away from the busyness of life.

Bring in Those 80s Vibes: Moody 80s vibes is what this bedroom style is all about. Curved furniture and Art Deco-inspired mirrors set the tone, while gold finishes and faux fur, animal print pillows give off those classic rockstar vibes.

Make a Statement: The key to a Miley-inspired bedroom design? Making sure almost every decor piece feels like it could be the main statement piece. Arched canopy bed, boxy gold nightstands, a curvaceous sofa, textural table lamps—no one piece of furniture or decor claims the spotlight in this space. Individually, they’re all showstoppers; combined, become a maximalist haven. (The rug is really the only subdued piece of this room; its simple design lets the rest of the decor shine.)

Create Symmetry: To make a dramatic, maximalist space more serene (because you want a bedroom to be relaxing, after all) opt for a fairly symmetrical layout. Aiming for symmetry and balance in design makes a space feel more harmonious. In this design, though there’s a sofa on one side of the room and a bench on the other, the rest of the space is fairly symmetrical, with matching nightstands, lamps, and mirrors balancing out the statement bed and wall art.

Get the Look: Miley’s Dining Room

Getting Miley Cyrus’s dining room style is all about pattern play. We used inspiration from both her formal dining room and eat-in kitchen table to create this look—but we’d like to think she’d approve of the mash-up of design elements! Both spaces in her home featured highly patterned dining chairs and sculptural elements, giving off a modern maximalist vibe.

How to Get the Look

Mix Materials and Patterns: Go big on ornamental materials and patterns. Materials like marble and bone inlay give a space a luxe foundation, while more ornamental wood furniture—like the slatted wood bar cabinet featured here, or even a burl wood—add warmth while still feeling glam. Layering patterns into a space with ornamental materials ups the maximalist glam factor. Here, we layered a geometric-patterned rug under a set of textural patterned dining chairs to add some visual drama. (Designer tip: the blues in both of these busy patterns helps tie them together rather than having them compete for attention.)

Keep Furniture Forms Simple: To balance out all of the patterns, prints, and ornamental materials, keep furniture forms relatively simple and minimal.

Add In Decorative Details: Miley is a maximalist, through and through. So, it’s important to add decorative elements into your space to max out the style. Extras in a dining room could be a cocktail table, lots of tabletop decor, vases full of sculptural flowers, and plenty of other natural greenery.

Get the Look: Miley’s Sitting Area

With dark walls and a set of four matching accent chairs around a large coffee table, a sitting area like Miley’s is the type of space that might feel rather dramatic in the average home. But we gotta say—we kind of love it. A sitting area is a fun area to add to your home if you have the space; whether you have a long, narrow living room and need to break it into zones or you have a totally separate room to dedicate to it, we love how this type of space is designed for conversation and entertaining.

How to Get the Look

Incorporate Curved Furniture: This sitting area has curves! Curved furniture gives this space an 80s edge while also feeling quite organic. Since all four chairs are matching, the curves of these chairs become a focal point in the space. These same curves are echoed in the coffee table, and the round light fixture drives it home. The soft, organic curves offer a fun contrast to all of the metallic and manufactured materials in the space.

Create Contrast: A black wall can feel pretty moody and dramatic—but when paired with colors like powder blue and natural greenery, the space really pops. (Bonus: the contrast of light blue chairs against a black wall only further highlights their curved forms!)

Use Luxe Materials: To elevate a sitting area from a casual gathering space to something a bit more lounge-like, up the glam factor through materials. Here, you can see that in the velvet of the chairs; the gold finishes on the coffee table, chairs, and light fixture; and the marble tabletop. These materials give a simple design sitting area and air of luxury.

Bonus Accent Area

Ok, we couldn’t help ourselves—we had to create just one more space that shows you how to bring that Miley vibe into your own home. This type of area could be along a wall in your living room, in a wide hallway or large entryway, or even in a dining room. Wherever it is in your home, the idea is to combine that glam 80s style with some funky playfulness.

Loud and funky, this little vignette showcases how contrasting pieces can really shine together. Two differently colored chairs flank a chunky, glamorous console featuring an eclectic assortment of art and objects. A maximalist’s dream, more is more with the surface styling of this piece. The funky shapes of the vases and sculptures collide with fun art pieces that range from photographs to humanist-inspired prints, resulting in a small gallery wall that feels a little modern, a little retro, and a whole lot eclectic.
