A bedroom is a haven. It's where we can relax after a long hard day at work, read our books, sip a cup of tea and enjoy some peace and quiet. It's also the area that you spend time with your partner, snuggling or chatting about the future.

This is why it's so important that your bedroom design is perfect. 

It should be a well-organised space with only the most functional of items on display. Clothes littering the floors and products littering the surfaces is a no-no. 

It should also feature tasteful and high quality decor elements and accessories, which enhance the space and make it feel like it is truly yours. Your personality should shine through!

To inspire you when it comes to bedroom design, we've put together 13 fabulous images for your to browse through. These aren't any designs, though! Each one of these is by a South African interior designer, showing you just how lekker local can be.

Do you want to take a look?

1. Cool and comforting

When in doubt, go for neutral colours in a bedroom to give the feeling of peace and tranquility. Beige, brown, cream, grey and white are all great tones for achieving a serene environment.

Tip: Add a beautiful artwork to the walls for a touch of personality.

2. It's all about the lighting

Use bedside lamps or candles to create a beautiful soft glow and a wonderful ambiance in your bedroom. Soft lighting can also be your best friend in a romantic situation.

3. Introduce bright colours

If you prefer a more eclectic design, don't be afraid to introduce some bright colours and bold statement pieces to your bedroom like The Painted Door Design Company have done here.

4. Add some cushioning

Add soft and plush cushions to your bed for maximum comfort and a functional and stylish touch. Your bed will look so inviting!

5. Textures and tones

You can also use your cushions as well as your headboard and throw to introduce different textures and tones to your neutral bedroom environment. When you get bored of the style, simply replace!

6. Speaking of headboards

7. Natural light

Natural light can really enhance a bedroom environment, so don't be afraid to open your curtains wide and let the sunlight stream in.

You should also open your windows, even in winter, during the day to let fresh air flow through the bedroom space.

8. Industrial chic

Use functional items such as the linen and the lamps to bring a funky, charming and even industrial chic design to your bedroom space.

9. Recycle items

If you're a fan of DIY crafts and activities, why not recycle palettes or doors to introduce a refreshing decor element into your home?

Here we can see how wooden doors have been reused as a headboard, making for a very charming and unique design.

10. All white
