Kourtney Kardashian is synonymous with minimalist style – both in her fashion and interiors choices, which she often shares with the world. 

With its airy, white-drenched rooms, filled with natural, neutral textures, and carefully curated accessories, her home follows a similar sleek format that celebrates minimalism in all its glory. And never more so than in the most intimate of spaces: her bedroom.

Media personality Kourtney, who lives with her musician husband, Travis Barker, shared a look inside her all-white bedroom with her Instagram followers. It's seductively understated, sleekly furnished, eternally stylish, and a reminder of white's timeless appeal – while creating a sanctuary that will promote a peaceful slumber. But what do design experts think, and how to emulate the look?

Kourtney worked with interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard to complete the sumptuous home, and the layered white on neutral scheme continues throughout.

'White continues to be a popular choice as it helps to create a minimalistic and uncluttered look, meaning it’s perfect for spaces you want to relax in, such as the bedroom,' says Helen Shaw, Benjamin Moore's international director of marketing.

When looking for paint ideas, Helen recommends choosing a slightly warmer white, similar to the one in Kourtney's bedroom – to create a welcoming space without sacrificing the desired 'clean' aesthetic.

'Shades with a warmer hue have become a widespread choice for those looking to avoid the clinical feel of a pure brilliant white while still creating a clean and understated look,' Helen explains. 

Naturally, the best white for your bedroom depends on the natural daylight and artificial lighting – so what works for Kourtney might not be ideal in your home. However, if you're working with a darker space, Helen Shaw suggests opting for a shade with warmer undertones, such as pink, that is designed to excel in shaded rooms. 

'[Alternatively] for those blessed with airy, light-filled rooms, opt for a white with underlying warm tones – like yellow, red, or brown as these will be amplified to create a soft, calming feel.'

Paint aside, and in terms of accessorizing, Helen says we should take our cue from the socialite's space. She invites us to accessorize with natural colors and textures in our throws, pillows, and curtains  (much like Kourtney) to 'create an effortless Scandinavian bedroom scheme'. 

Alongside the accessories, we couldn't help but note the sprawling cream rug and the glass coffee table that is topped with roses and fashion books.

We're buying our way into the space with these Kourtney-inspired picks below.

We can't all have a Calabasas mansion, but with these tips, we can create timeless Scandi-space, wherever we are.
