Kendall Jenner is among the most recognized supermodel of the generation – and her hectic schedule certainly reflects her title. The socialite is no stranger to the streets of London, Paris, and New York City – but her SoCal home is noticeably more tranquil – and the peace begins with the bedroom.
Though much of her Mulholland Estates home exhibits a neutral, earthy aesthetic, Kendall's bedroom color ideas set the bar in the room where design decisions (arguably) count the most. Kendall's abundantly neutral space is designed with style and well-being in mind – and experts from the science and interior worlds agree.
'The best colors to promote healthy sleep are neutral colors and warm tones. This includes the items and decor in your room, as well as paint colors,' says Rachel Mitchell, a certified sleep specialist and CEO of My Sweet Sleeper (opens in new tab).

Rachel Mitchell is a certified maternity and pediatric sleep specialist, parent educator, and CEO of My Sweet Sleeper – created to offer parents the skills to provide their children the rest they need. In her decade-long career, Rachel has helped thousands of families achieve better sleep due to her distinct responsive and instinct-based approach.
According to Rachel, beige or off-white and neutral grays are colors that help you sleep – and their power extends beyond your bedroom walls. You can also incorporate these colors through furniture, textiles, and accessories – which Kendall has done in the space above. Stand-out pieces include the cream headboard above her off-white luxury bedding.
Kendall has added a dark wooden table, adorned with a white and light green lamp, and a large cream armchair in front of the curtains (that are also cream, naturally).
'Studies have shown that certain colors exhibit specific emotions or feelings. When setting up your sleep space it is best to think about colors that help you feel relaxed such as colors that we see in nature and to avoid bright or fluorescent tones, especially when it comes to lighting,' Rachel adds.
And unsurprisingly, Kendall's cream and beige bedroom is just as popular among design experts. 'Neutrals are an essential color family for any interior and range from greys to beiges. [They are] perfect for calming down busy and bold schemes while enhancing minimal and contemporary looks,' says Helen Shaw, the director of Benjamin Moore (opens in new tab).
As Helen explains, decorating with neutrals is a great way to create a 'minimalist base' that can 'act as a versatile foundation' for your favorite colors. However, if you're looking to take inspiration from Kendall (and possibly encourage better sleep in the process), you should opt for more muted shades that don't interrupt the neutral scheme.
'When combined with monochromatic furnishings, simple shades work perfectly to create a minimalist, contemporary decorating aesthetic,' Helen adds.
You can shop for the look below.
This mid-century-style chair blends sophistication, craftsmanship, and comfort to create a piece just like Kendall's. The curved silhouette is described as 'timeless' in its appearance while the petite proportions 'make it perfect as a pair.'
We've color-matched the all-important neutral paint to Ryokan Guesthouse Neutral Beige. This tranquil, mid-tone classic tan beige is said to be 'the next best thing to being in Japan,' and of course, it's got the seal of approval from sleep and color experts alike.
Though Kendall's LED light is not in the main bedroom shot, it is visible in the third photo on her image carousel. This sunset lamp by YouOKLight is an accessible alternative – allowing you to create an indoor rainbow in style (almost) as beautiful as Kendall's.
We would expect nothing less from style guru Kendall, after all.
