Bedrooms are uniquely personal spaces, so decorating a bedroom for someone is always a trick task to master, especially if the person in question is none other than business mogul, Kris Jenner.
Although Kris Jenner has built an empire living in the reality TV spotlight, her neutral bedroom was designed with peace and tranquility in mind.
In a conversation with Architectural Digest, and to the astonishment of her designers – Waldo Fernandez of Waldo Designs and the mother-and-son team of Kathleen and Tommy Clements of Clements Design – Jenner outlined her vision for a calming retreat, far removed from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles life.
'She said that it’s not necessarily in her nature, but that she’d trust us completely to do what we think is right,' Kathleen told AD.
The final result? An oasis that not only imbues the trend for quiet luxury but, most importantly, a space that is thoroughly conducive to sleep and well-being.

So what is it that makes this space the ideal environment for sleep? The bedroom color scheme is key here.
‘For a calm and restful bedroom scheme, introduce colors with a neutral undertone and tie these together so that everything blends together and nothing glares,’ adds Nicky Mudie, founder and director of Violet & George.
Interior designer, Deborah Bass of Base Interior agrees: ‘Using a neutral tone, such as the one Kris Jenner has in her bedroom, while avoiding a minimal or stark atmosphere is a delicate balancing act between the natural light, artificial lighting and the other textures and tones used throughout. Sampling on site, in various lights including artificial lighting, and at different times of day cannot be underestimated.’
Bedrooms are deeply personal spaces and should be decorated accordingly, believes Farrow & Ball’s color curator Joa Studholme. ‘If you are a morning person who likes to jump out of bed and attack the day, then you are probably more suited to having a clean, light, uplifting color on the walls,’ she says. ‘Evening people will more likely embrace the dark, womb-like shades. For a bedroom used purely for sleeping, serene colors, similar to Kris Jenner's, will induce a good night’s rest and a sense of calm.’
Don't forget the fifth wall when choosing a color for your sleep space. Bedroom ceilings garner more attention than those elsewhere in the house. ‘For the ultimate in calm, use the same color, or even a slightly darker tone on the ceiling as the walls, thus increasing the perceived room height. This may sound alarming, but the result is a wonderfully cocoon-like space,’ she says.
