The gray upholstered headboard style is chic and beautiful. The accents of pink in the throw pillows help reinforce this feminine look. The patterned wallpaper is modern and unique but ties everything together, from the throw pillows and bedding to the headboard. This room was designed by Lucy and Company.

4. Black and Gray Roman Shades
Roman shades are a great option to replace both blinds and curtains. The black and gray Roman shades that Alyssa Rosenheck uses in this bedroom design are great for privacy but also bring out the blacks and grays throughout the room. This room is masculine but also light and airy, which is a nice combination.
5. Abstract Artwork
It’s easy to use abstract artwork in whatever color scheme you decide to go with. This bedroom is decorated with neutrals and a blush pink chair and so the gray and white abstract art fits in perfectly. Amanda Nisbet Design did a great job creating this feminine look.
6. Tufted Headboard
A tufted headboard provides texture and character to any bedroom. There’s something about the style that looks elegant and refined. It’s especially beautiful in this dark gray bed frame and headboard that Kim Smith Photo features. Also, how fun is the chandelier in this room?
7. Corduroy Chair and Ottoman
The corduroy fabric choice is sure to bring texture to any room. We are loving this gray corduroy chair and ottoman in this bedroom. It looks like a comfortable place to sit down and read a book. The neutral colors that Alison Pickart used in this design are beautiful.
8. Floral Accent Wall
It’s always fun to have an accent wall with either a bold color or a patterned print. The black and white floral accent wall in this bedroom is certainly a statement! Kevin Spearman uses pops of color throughout the rest of the room to brighten up the look.
9. Dresser with Cubbies
This soft gray dresser with cubbies would be perfect in a nursery, but would work well in any bedroom! The overall style has a timeless look that won’t go out of style. This dresser has a 4.5-star rating out of 5 stars on Wayfair so we know you will be satisfied with it.
10. Farmhouse Glam
Incorporate a little bit of country and a little bit of glam in your bedroom style! This farmhouse glam bedroom by Berry Home has both of these elements. The white sliding barn door is a nice touch. The tufted headboard makes the room more glamorous and refined.

A stairstep shelf allows you to feature a variety of items in a unique way. There is plenty of shelf space on the steps portion of this piece of furniture where you can display items without having to worry about the item being too tall to fit. This shelf was featured by Resene Colour.
12. Magical Forest Wallpaper
Make your bedroom a magical space when you install this magical forest wallpaper on an accent wall. If you look closely, you will see little stars dispersed throughout the leafless trees. The neutral colors of gray allow the print to be busy yet not overwhelming in this bedroom designed by Lucy and Company.

Whether you’re decorating your oceanside condo or simply want to bring coastal vibes to your space, you’re going to love this beach-style bedroom featured by Keating Moore Construction. While the room is primarily light gray, there are accents of a vivid blue that brighten it up and bring ocean vibes to the room.

16. Black and Gray
Black and gray go together nicely, especially when accents of white are added in. The black, tan, and gray blanket gives this room texture and style. While the overall room design seems to be masculine, we like how Flynnside Out added a small vase of pink flowers.
17. Gray Side Table
This mid-century modern side table is a beautiful gray color with a slight green tint to it. This bedroom has a variety of pieces that are unique along with various prints and textures. We love the plaid upholstered headboard that Heidi Caillier Design uses in this bedroom design.

19. Wall Letters
Personalize the bedroom by adding a name to the wall with these wall letters from PB Kids. You can get the letters in all caps, all lowercase, or a mixture of both. The light gray color contrasts nicely with the white shiplap on the walls in this bedroom.

21. Gray Buffalo Check
We typically see the buffalo check pattern in black and white, but this gray buffalo check is just as beautiful! It has a much lighter feel to it than the black and white one. This print and color would look great in a farmhouse-style bedroom like the one featured here by Target.

This gray ombre dresser would look beautiful in the last bedroom that we shared! You can also get a side table and a matching desk to complete the set. These furniture pieces from Walmart look spectacular in a bedroom that has hints of gray throughout.
25. Gray Ceramic Table Lamp
This glossy gray ceramic table lamp is an elegant and sophisticated piece that looks great in a feminine-style bedroom. Put one on each side of the bed along with a vase full of pale pink flowers, like Overstock does in this bedroom design.
This bedroom design is simply glamorous! The white chandelier is especially glamorous, but there are other accents that add to this style. The tufted headboard and the bench at the end of the bed make this room sophisticated. We love the white trim near the ceiling in this David S. design.
27. Gray and White Decorative Books
We love the look of using color-coordinated books as a decor piece. These particular gray-hued books are available from the Book Crush store on Etsy. You can stack them on top of each other and top them with a small potted succulent, or simply display them right-side-up as if on a traditional bookshelf.

The matching headboard, armoire, and side table look gorgeous in this bedroom design by World Market. We are loving the gray and white bedding and how it coordinates so well with the overall room design.
30. Gray Chandelier
If you like the look of a gray chandelier, you can either buy one that’s exactly what you want, or you can find an old chandelier and paint it gray! Typically, finding an old one that you can upcycle is a less expensive option, if you have the time to finish the project like Dear Lillie did.
Adding a deer or elk European mount to the wall will give any room a rustic style. Studio McGee places this European mount between two beds, which fills the wall space nicely. We love the striped bedding in neutral colors and the gray side table that is placed between the two beds.
32. Benjamin Moore Arctic Seal

33. Oriental Rug
This gray and white Oriental-style rug is perfect for a farmhouse-glam-style room. This rug adds classic elegance to the room. It’s a perfect neutral color that would pair well with a variety of decor styles. This particular rug is available on Wayfair.
34. Painted Gray Bedroom Door
This gray color is a lot prettier than its name would have you believe. This particular paint is called Mole’s Breath by Farrow and Ball. It is a moody gray that goes well with whites and other neutral colors. Farrow and Ball recommends using it in smaller spaces to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.
35. Circular Mirrors
While circular mirrors add style to a room, we like how this HGTV bedroom has two circular mirrors stacked one above the other on the wall. We also love the patterned gray and white wallpaper in this room. The mirrors look beautiful against it.
36. Decorative Pillows
Decorative pillows are a wonderful way to add character to a room. This bedroom has a variety of accent pillows in various shades of gray that match the furniture and decor throughout the bedroom. We also love the decorative mirrors that Baker Design Group used in this bedroom design.
37. Patterned Wallpaper
In this bedroom design, Baker Design Group uses a feathered chevron style printed wallpaper in grays and whites on an accent wall. The pattern is trendy and makes this room stylish. Yellow and gray always complement each other well. We also love the teal-colored guitar print that’s framed on the wall.
38. Pop of Color
When a bedroom is decorated and painted with neutral colors and furniture, adding accent pillows and throw blankets that have a pop of color will completely change the vibe of the room. The mustard color that Natalie Priem uses in this bedroom design really stands out from the neutral colors throughout the room.
39. Pink and Gray
Another color that pairs nicely with gray is pink, especially pale pink. This color combination is perfect for nurseries but can be used in bedroom designs for older children and adults too. This bedroom featured by Digs Digs is the perfect example. We’re loving the gray and pink triangles painted on the wall.
40. Silver Maple Flooring
If you don’t want to paint your walls gray, you could opt for a gray-colored floor. This bedroom design is clean, bright, and peaceful. The silver maple flooring used by Build Direct is gorgeous and goes perfectly with the overall theme of the bedroom.
41. Gray Candle Holders
Candles are always a nice addition to a bedroom. They can create a romantic glow or provide light in the room when the electricity is out. These gray candle holders from Kirklands would look great in a farmhouse-style bedroom. The style would give the bedroom a sense of rustic elegance.
42. Chunky Knit Blanket
Not only is this chunky knit blanket incredibly beautiful, but who wouldn’t love a swing-style bed? The gray chunky knit blanket is featured in this bedroom design by Cool Linen. This Scandanavian bedroom is decorated in neutral colors that make this a relaxing space.
43. Spiral Motif Ceiling Mural
This spiral motif ceiling mural is certainly unusual. It makes a galaxy-type effect on the ceiling and gives this room a character all of its own. Jean-Louis Deniot takes a classic wall mural and puts it on the ceiling instead. Somehow, this whimsical design just works in this bedroom style!
44. Twinkle Lights
Twinkle lights are beautiful in every room, but especially magical in bedrooms such as this one featured by Vision Bedding. You can hang twinkle-style lights along the headboard area for added ambiance to the room. We also love the paper lanterns that are on the floor.
This bedroom also has twinkle-style lights and it makes this bedroom design simply magical. These twinkle lights look amazing beneath this gray linen bed canopy. Vision Bedding does a great job combining farmhouse, rustic, and boho elements in this bedroom design. Who wouldn’t want a bedroom as magical as this one?
46. Shades of Gray
As we have shown in other gray bedroom ideas in this list, using various shades of gray is a beautiful way to style a bedroom. The walls, tufted headboard, bedding, throw blanket, and furniture are all various shades of gray. The combination styled by Fab Mood is nicely curated.
47. Dark Gray Accent Wall
Another way to add gray to a bedroom is to paint an accent wall a dark gray color like Chasing the Look did in this bedroom design. The dark gray paint makes all of the white features stand out even more. The yellow accent pillows on the white bedding are a nice touch!
48. Luxurious Gray
If you want to live the life of luxury, or at least decorate your bedroom in luxury, then we suggest following this visualization by Yasmeen Wassim. This bedroom design is contemporary and has numerous artistic elements throughout the room. The gray tufted headboard and the black snake-skin-like wallpaper are our favorite parts.
