Indie Bedroom Ideas for Your Unique Space

All your indie bedroom ideas all on one page. We have pulled together various products for you to create your own indie room.

Creating an indie aesthetic room is so easy as it is based on you and your interests – there is no right or wrong way to go about it. We are here to give you some inspiration for your bedroom makeover but ultimately the design is yours to play around with. Take our ideas and adapt them to suit you, but you'll get an understanding of the vibe you should be going for.

Let us tell you a little more about an indie design and the advantages of using it as the aesthetic of your bedroom.

What are the characteristics of an indie bedroom?

An indie bedroom aesthetic is all about making it reflect your personality and your interests, so everyone's design will look different. Usually, it will be a cosy and eclectic style that incorporates vintage, Boho and retro aspects. An indie style can use a mixture of colours, textures and patterns so you can go as bold as you like with it. The walls can be filled with posters of your favourite artists or quirky and unique artwork.

How does an indie bedroom help you sleep?

An indie aesthetic room can be perfect for the bedroom. The colours tend to be muted so they won't be too intense on your eyes which can help you to unwind. It will be a space full of everything you love so ultimately it will make you happy – in turn, it'll keep you in a good mood before falling asleep which is exactly how you want to feel.

Products to help you create your indie bedroom

We are here to help you choose the products that suit your bedroom the most or to come up with alternatives that will work better for your indie room ideas. From the bed frame to the furniture to the finishing touches – we have found it all for you to save you from searching around.

Bed frame

Now, there is no specific type of bed frame for an indie room but we would suggest keeping it fairly simple because the room decor can be a lot with a bold bed. Plain, wooden and low-slung is what we would look for to keep the feel of the bedroom relaxed.

Recommended Reading:

Barcelona Low Foot End Antique Pine Wooden Bed

Barcelona Low Foot End Antique Solid Pine Wooden Bed

Based on our thoughts, we picked this low-foot-end wooden bed. A lower edge allows you to drape the bedding over the end of the frame for an extra cosy and casual look. The antique pine finish brings a vintage style into the room which is exactly what you should be after. So, although it may look simple, it's actually a perfectly suitable choice.


The choice of bedding for your indie room is very broad. You can have one block colour, a gingham pattern or something bold. Think about what you would like and think how it would work with other products in the bedroom – of course, different patterns and textures are welcome.

Cow Print Duvet Cover Bedding Set

Cow Print Duvet Cover Bedding Sets

This funky bedding set is at the bold end of the scale but it is monochrome, making it pair nicely with any other colours. A cow print is definitely one to draw attention to the space and it just makes your bedroom exciting. Make your bed the statement piece by popping these sheets on and decorating around it. On the flip side, there is a gingham pattern so you can alternate after every wash.

Ivory 200TC Egyptian Cotton Fitted Sheet


The fitted sheet is not so important as it is mostly covered by the bed sheets which is why we have picked a beautiful and soft one for your bed to be comfortable. It also means there is no chance of the fitted sheet taking the attention away from the duvet set. Choosing an ivory colour is beautiful against the white of the cow print.

Soft furnishings

The soft furnishings in an indie room provide the perfect opportunity to bring texture into the bedroom. Whether that's something fluffy, tufted tassels or velvet, there is an endless choice of textures for your bedroom.

Pineapple Elephant Kebra Aztec Cushion

Pineapple Elephant Kebra Aztec Cushion

This cushion has a repeated geometric pattern designed in terracotta and white. It's finished with fringed edge detailing. On the reverse side, it is plain so you can switch between the design or no design being on show. You could even have all three colour ways to make the most of different colours.

Mistana Rosemond Dhadit Throw

Dhadit Throw

To coordinate with the cushion, we have selected this throw in the blush option. It has hints of grey and red too with fringing on the edge. The contrasting woven lines add warmth to the bedroom. This all ties in nicely with the red and white of the cushion. However, to keep it indie, it's also adding another texture.


The furniture in your room is not so important to complete the indie aesthetic. You can keep any furniture in the bedroom as it can work with a vintage style. But there are no essential pieces you need.

Pine Floating Shelf

Fulton Pine Floating Shelf

To keep things simple, we suggest having a wooden floating shelf to match the bed frame and to balance out the extravagant products in the room. It creates the ideal place for any little ornaments or memorabilia that allow your personality to shine through. You could tier a few of them to add depth to the space.

Home decor

A part of the indie room decor you can have fun with is the finishing touches. This is what brings the room together and the easiest way to include even more patterns and textures. You can even add a little greenery.

Petra Folk Tapestry

Petra Folk Tapestry

Tapestries are popular for indie room decor which is why we’ve included this one into our list of ideas. It’s large in size so it can span across your wall – above your bed – or you could even attach it to the ceiling for a cosier feel. It gives off a Boho vibe with the intricate design and warm shades. This compliments the cooler blue toned background. To finish it off, it has tassels on every edge bringing it back to the design of the cushion and throw.

Artificial Ivy Garland Vines

CQURE 14 Pcs Artificial Ivy Garland Vines

For a hint of greenery, you can hang these vines up around the bedroom. If you’ve hung the tapestry one of the walls, you could drape the vines across the ceiling from corner to corner – or vice versa. Perhaps you’re thinking of attaching it to your bed frame or shelf, that would work too. It can help to give a natural aesthetic to your room.

100 Warm White LED Micro Fairy Lights

100 Warm White LED Micro Fairy Lights

Fairy lights make everything better, what’s room decor without them? They create a lovely ambience when you want low light, they warm up a space, and they are just what you need in for indie room decor. You could tie them round with the vines for a cosy look, or you can hang them separate to cover more surface space.

Additional features

It’s likely that you’ll keep the walls plain because you’ll have the bold patterns from the rest of the bedroom to liven it up. There’s no set colour scheme or rules of what paint to use. We would recommend a basic white shade.

As for the ceiling, we briefly mentioned the room decor that can transform the bedroom. Attach tapestry, lights or foliage to give depth, cosiness and excitement.

Wall art

Mushroom Collection 03 Art Print

Now we’ve got some indie wall decor ideas for you. You could make a collage of all your favourite posters and mix it with a bunch of stickers. On the other hand, if you haven’t got a collection then you can find pre-made bundles to use instead. Whatever you do, allow it to bring out your true personality.

Mushroom Collection 03 Art Print – The colours in this print have a vintage feel and it has a quirky design. If you are out of ideas of what to put on the wall, consider this one.

50Pcs Vintage Botanical Wall Collage Kit

50pcs Vintage Botanical Wall Collage Kit – For a full collection to create your collage of prints, you can use this one to have a completely matching aesthetic. A combination of neutrals and greenery to fit the bedroom themes.

54PCS Vintage Rock Wall Collage Kit

54pcs Vintage Rock Wall Collage Kit – A dark collection of prints, but a selection that shows your love for music. Pick out some of your favourite artists and add more to the collage over time.


An indie room doesn’t have to be as well thought out as other bedroom designs because a lot of this is based on your personal interests so it should be easy to achieve. There’s no need to filter out anything as it’s your space, your personality and your design. Now it's your turn to bring our indie bedroom ideas to life.

As a CPD certified Sleep Consultant I know how important sleep is. And as a combination sleeper, I have found it difficult to get products to suit my sleep style. I have more than 2 years product testing experience with The Sleep Advisors which means I have slept on, with and under more than 500 products with varying degrees of success. This is added to more than 2 years experience as a product reviewer for Closer, Heat and Grazia magazines, so I've got a rigorous process. I love sharing my sleep testimonials with our readers and hearing their experiences too.
