35 Rose gold bedroom ideas for your home

Rose gold is here to stay—and so are rose gold bedrooms! Here’s how to use the metallic blush tone to make your bedroom shine

Over the past few years, you can’t have missed the surge in popularity for all things rose gold in interior design. As a metal, rose gold is typically chosen for its romantic, pretty, feminine qualities. However, depending on the styling, a rose gold bedroom can be gender-neutral or even masculine, too. While a heavily saturated rose gold palette is perhaps falling out of favour lately, rose gold is still gracing chic interiors with subtle touches of the metallic blush hue. Rose gold is regarded as a trend with genuine staying power—when it’s done right.

The metal “rose gold”

Rose gold as a metal has coppery tones, so “rose gold” and “copper” are sometimes used interchangeably, but the metals are in fact different. Copper, silver, gold and platinum are native metals, found in nature in their metallic form, whether pure or as an alloy. However, rose gold is not native and instead is a mixture of gold, silver and copper (the combination varies).

Rose gold tones

But the colour “rose gold” doesn’t necessarily have to be a fixture made of metal. Rose gold tones might be introduced through paintwork, soft furnishings, coloured glass or even rosy-toned timbers like Tasmanian Oak. What is classified as “rose gold” is really in the eye of the beholder when we’re talking tonnes and not metals.

Below, I’ve gathered a selection of beautiful bedrooms which to me, have a rose gold-tone. But of course, in some cases, metals used are likely to actually be traditional gold or sometimes aged brass which can also have a rosy look to it. Depending on your desired aesthetic though, the warm-toned metals can often be substituted for one another.

So let’s take a look at 35+ examples of rose gold bedrooms that demonstrate how to artfully incorporate rose gold into your space.

1. Rose gold and rust bedroom

Let’s start with this lovely mid-century flavoured rose gold bedroom which blends the pinkish metal into a set of rusty pinks and terracottas. Rose gold marries really well with warm, natural materials, like this beautiful rattan bed frame and simple timber bedside.

2. Coastal with rose gold

Here’s another gorgeous bedroom styled with a very subtle touch of rose gold. The all-white, timber aesthetic of this beachside Australian home is beautifully enhanced by the warm tones here, which are repeated in the little artwork and potplant.

Lots of shapes and forms add interest to this room, with the parallel lines in the panelled wall, roof and timber floor, and the cylindrical bedside. And I love how delicate and unobtrusive that rose gold lamp is!

3. Rose gold planter

Isn’t this rattan nightstand stunning? I love the simplicity of this bedroom setup: minimalist timber bed, statement nightstand, pretty floral bedding, a rug underfoot, and a lush bedside plant. The overall warmth of this space is enhanced by the addition of the rose gold planter.

4. Go for pairs

Having just one piece of rose gold in a bedroom can provide a striking focal point or accent, but having a pair of rose gold elements works really well too so it’s a popular way to style with rose gold. For example, you might have a rose gold light fitting plus a rose gold mirror, or a rose gold lamp plus a rose gold pot plant, as below. Pairs of rose gold elements do not need to be symmetrical, in fact, it’s better if they aren’t.

5. Vintage screen

Giving your bedroom loads of character is easy by selecting a stunning rose gold feature, especially if it’s vintage. I love this etched rose gold-toned screen acting as an elegant headboard. Its warmth is amplified by the burnt orange cushions, timber floor and bedside. I love that sculptural bedside lamp as well!

6. Rose gold, teal and powder pink

A bright and refreshing bedroom space here, with oodles of summery white, a statement velvet bed and mid-century touches in the planter, bedside and rosy gold lamp. There’s lots of interesting texture in the room through the soft furnishings, and I love the way the artwork makes it look as if there’s a window there with greenery poking up!

7. Mix it with brights

A Moroccan-flavoured dazzling white bedroom here, with a gorgeous white headboard that softly blends into the wall, giving just a delicate silhouette. Plenty of texture in this space, with that beautifully patterned woven bolster, the pretty pompom trimmed pillows and the series of breezy seaside artworks. And adding a little sophistication is the coppery, rosy gold bedside and matching “@” sculpture—this last element placing it unequivocally in the contemporary era!

8. Add a touch of terrazzo

This hip bedroom belongs to a New York jewellery designer and is full of unique, quirky elements like the rose gold double-ended light fitting above the bed. Once again the rose gold here pairs perfectly with rattan and timber. I also like the little terrazzo bedside and the bold mixing of metals with the addition of a brass table lamp.

9. Rosy toned picture frames and lamps

Below, a sweet pink bed with mustard cushions and rose gold bedroom décor in the form of a rose gold bulb sconce overhanging a marble-topped bedside table. Rose gold and marble is another classic “glam” pairing that you’ll find all over Pinterest, but it can sometimes look a bit OTT. But here, I think it’s a nice accent. I also really like how the abstract colour block artworks really unify the space, repeating the pink and mustard tones, and surrounded by rosy-toned picture frames.

10. Go for a classic palette

Here’s a contemporary rose gold bedroom featuring the classic palette of blush, grey and white. There’s an overall feeling of softness, enhanced by tactile soft furnishings like a sheepskin rug. A rose gold bedside lamp is the perfect way to bring a little shine into an otherwise matte space.

11. Show off a unique bedside

This one’s another contemporary bedroom, in a more minimalist style—how about that tiny graphic wall light? There’s lots of visual interest despite how simple the space is. There’s an edgy, velvety grey headboard, crumpled linen in grey and pale blue tones, and of course that hammered metal bedside table, formed to resemble a tree stump or perhaps a barrel. It may actually be copper, but it’s giving off pinkish rose gold vibes in lovely contrast to the greys here.

12. Rose gold bed

A rose gold, wrought iron-style bedframe is an easy way to create a rose gold bedroom aesthetic. Below, a minimalist bedroom with a statement rose gold bed frame, set in a classic palette of black, white and blush pink.

13. Scandi style

A neutral, Scandi style bedroom is beautifully warmed up by a touch of rose gold here, with the reflective metal always being a lovely match with timber. I’m loving this mid-century style nightstand, which appears to be marble-topped. And the white vase against the white wall allows the flowers (or even just sprigs of foliage) to really stand out.

14. Dark walls

Dark, saturated hues also go very well with rose gold. This moody bedroom features a gorgeous shade of slate, with the panelled wall treatment complementing the lines of the rose gold bed frame. Other colours that also pair wonderfully with rose gold include navy, teal or black. Against rich, deep, matte shades, rose gold provides a bright, shiny contrast.

If you’re thinking about painting your bedroom walls, you can find a bedroom painter.

15. Go farmhouse

Use rose gold to instantly add French provincial vibes to your bedroom. All you really need is a statement antique or reproduction bed, lots and lots of fresh white linen and cushions, a few timber accents and a pretty rose gold and white double sconce. Et voila!

16. Rose gold and brown tones

This cosy looking bedroom has a lovely peaceful colour scheme of naturals and neutrals, with just a few pops of colour here and there. The rose gold vintage style table lamp picks up on the warm tones in the room and adds a welcome sheen to the muted, matte space. With the wall hooks and ledges, this bedroom is quite creative with storage—see more bedroom storage ideas.

17. Rose gold in blue bedroom

This vintage swing-arm lamp may be slightly less rosy and more brassy, but I’m including this blue bedroom because of that gorgeous peacock coloured wall and the unique floral-patterned bedhead. Such a timeless, elegant space.

18. Rosy bedside cart

Rose gold is regarded as a natural fit for colour palettes incorporating pinks. It just works so well with soft blush tones, powder pinks and dusty roses. Below, a pastel colour scheme with pink, lilac, white and grey, with a unique, vintage-style bedside cart featuring just a whisper of rose gold.

19. Rose gold mirror and lamp

Here’s another example of a modern rose gold bedroom that is styled in a classic palette of cool pastels. The addition of rose gold adds warmth and contrast to a cool-toned bedroom, and here the warmth is also increased by the cosy rug, the timber bedside and the pops of orange and pink.

20. Eclectic with rose gold

This maximalist bedroom brings rose gold into the space to complement the blush and teal/grey colour scheme. The texture is plentiful thanks to the hammered mirror, padded wall, textured vase and patterned soft furnishings. Even the aged timber dresser adds another layer of texture. If you love pendant lights, find a lighting expert to ensure they are perfectly installed.

21. Rose gold sconce and frame

A quirky arrangement here, with plenty of personality, thanks to the little curios and decorative elements. An unusual sculptural timber and marble bedside holds a small rose gold picture frame, which is paired with a rose gold and white wall sconce. Adding to the luxe vibe created by the marble and metal, velvet pillows are always a lovely sumptuous touch.

22. Mix it with rattan

Rattan and rose gold make a beautiful pairing that typically evokes a boho vibe, especially if there are vintage elements in the mix. Below, a gorgeous sunny rose gold bedroom with a streamlined rattan bed frame and a stunning rattan lampshade, given character and charm with a rose gold leaner mirror. I love the mix of clean white walls, blush tones, rose gold and that pop of mustard.

23. Rose gold picture frame and light

This enigmatic bedroom has an unexpected colour scheme, with pale pink mixed with a kind of hazel and set against an inky black backdrop. The rose gold picture frame, as well as that unique, rosy-toned circular statement light, energise this otherwise flat colour scheme.

24. Feminine accents

A rose gold and marble bedroom is a classic contemporary look—here, it’s a twin pair of rose gold lamps with marble bases, in a blush and grey bedroom colour scheme. The hardness of the metal and stone balance all the soft textures and pale colours of a bedroom like this. How handy is that picture ledge, making it super easy to change up your prints?

25. Rose gold glass pendant

As I noted above, rose gold tones can be found in many materials, including glass. Here, a rose gold glass pendant light fits beautifully into this unusual colour scheme. I love these aubergine tones—the kicker is they’re made of a French eco-friendly certified vegetable paint, so the paint may be actually made from aubergine! (Just kidding, I have no idea.) And how about these atmospheric drapes? But if you’re after some more inspo, see these bedroom curtain ideas.

26. Ornate rose gold bed frame

This one’s all about the charm of yesteryear, with a dramatically ornate, rose gold bed frame, delicate fringed chandelier, pink bulb wall sconces and those adorable decorative shells—the velvet pillow and the little bedside sculpture—that match the detail in the bed frame. A bedroom for the true romantics!

27. Lots of white and a dash of rose gold

I love this bright bedroom, so flooded with light and full of pattern. And giving it a peachy pinkish sheen is the unique rose gold double mirror, which appears also to have potplant holders built into it!

28. Children’s rose gold bedroom

This style of rose gold bed has been wildly popular over the past few years and continuing. I think people simply love the nostalgic flavour of this vintage look, not to mention the sweetness of the rose-coloured metal.

In the children’s bedroom below, timber wall panelling, faintly printed wallpaper, a rattan bedside, and some beautifully framed prints, all combine to create a dreamy, peaceful coastal vibe. I really love this soft colour palette of seafoam blue, white and peach.

Wallpapering needs to be done carefully to make sure it all lines up perfectly and minimise and bubbles or tears, find a wallpaper installation expert to help you out.

29. In the pink

A super shiny rose gold pendant lamp is balanced by a powdery pink + white colour scheme here. Timber, in the white chair, skirting boards and floorboards, also helps balance the bright reflectivity of metal. And if you love this idea of having a feature wall as a headboard, bring it to life with the help of a local painter.

30. Rose gold and marble bedside

Add a little oomph to a glam bedroom with rose gold and marble bedside table—this one is a simple DIY job. And there’s no reason you can’t similarly revamp some of your existing bedroom decors with a can of rose gold spray paint. Find more DIY and upcycling inspo in our article on bedroom ideas.

31. Rose gold accents

This setup would be ideal for a teen girl’s rose gold bedroom. It’s sweet and quaint, with the little vintage style pink and grey suitcases with their rose gold latches and hinges. The swing-arm desk lamp has matching rose gold fittings, while the lampshade, pillows and sheepskin rug add a burst of white.

32. Rattan and rose gold

Here’s another example of a Boho bedroom that makes the most of the natural synergy between rattan, dusty rose tones and rose gold metal. It’s a can’t-go-wrong trio of design elements that easily achieves  a cosy, natural harmony. Don’t forget to add a variety of bedroom plants to amplify the connection to nature.

33. Vintage bedside watering can

And if you’re a plant mama or papa who loves to fill their bedroom with indoor plants, make life easier by keeping a watering can nearby. Of course, I don’t mean any old plastic watering can! Keep things decorative and sophisticated with a vintage, coppery rose gold watering can like this one perched on an old wooden stool.

34. Vintage rose gold lamps

This is a charming modern farmhouse bedroom full of character, not least because of that beautiful vintage industrial-style rose gold lights. I love the contrast of white panelling on the walls and the glossy timber flooring. Get a revamp of your bedroom floor with the help of timber floorboarding expert.

35. Lamp and mirror combo

Pairing rose gold elements in your bedroom, such as with a lamp and mirror, is very effective. The doubling up of the same tone is just enough to create a cohesive look without overdoing things.

Below, a whimsical Parisian bedroom shows how it’s done, with rose gold accents in the pendant light and vintage mirror. The rosy-toned metal fits perfectly into this soft pastel Scandi colour scheme.

As you can see from the rose gold bedrooms above, it doesn’t take much to put a subtle pink spin on your bedroom space—whether it’s a rose gold lamp, mirror, picture frames or a rose gold wrought-iron style bed frame. A judicious sprinkling of rose gold adds charm and romance to a bedroom and is just that little bit more understated than blingy, true gold. Over to you—is rose gold still on your decorating radar?
