You may have heard that to ensure a good night’s rest, your bedroom should only be for sleeping. But let’s be honest. Our bedroom isn’t just where we sleep. We watch TV, check email on the laptop, nurse sick kids, or cuddle with the pets when it’s just too early (or cold) to get the day started. You spend a significant portion of your life in the bedroom.

With that in mind, we’ve brought together a collection of  design ideas from Lennar master bedrooms across the country. We hope you’re inspired to transform your bedroom into a place that makes you comfortable, relaxed and most important, feel at home.

Want to experiment with color while keeping your bedroom elegant and serene? Add a darker accent wall to play up the color in your accessories or define a cohesive sitting area, as shown in this Fresno, CA home. Add lush pillows or a throw to keep your room feeling relaxed and cozy.

Depending on where you live, forgoing a ceiling fan in the bedroom may be unthinkable. But if you’re looking to make a bold statement, a unique fixture, like this one from Seattle, WA, can add drama and interest to your space.

From cherished family photos to the kid’s artwork, a gallery wall is a great way to fill up an empty space and keep your favorite images nearby. For an eclectic look, use frames of varying shapes and styles, or keep it tailored and simple like this example from Nashville, TN.
