Bedrooms are havens for sleep, but are also places that probably say the most about people’s personalities. New research has revealed six distinct ‘tribes’ when it comes to British bedrooms.

Not only are these tribes linked by their taste of décor; according to a new survey by British bedding brand Appletree, people’s bedroom style reveals common personality characteristics too.

Britain’s six most popular bedroom tribes are:

The Blooming Bright Bunch
The Grey Gang
The Dream Catchers
The Racy Set
The Clear Clan
The Baroque Brigade 

“The bedroom is a private space where people feel freer to express themselves than in the public areas of the home. Our survey found that the bedding and décor you choose for your bedroom reveals more than you might realise about your personality.” – Jackie McLoughin, Design Director from Appletree

THE BLOOMING BRIGHT BUNCH

This bedroom tribe opts for bright blooms, bold colour schemes and mixing in retro/vintage looks.

They like to wake up feeling inspired and invigorated by their surrounding colours.

Described themselves as:

Confident
Full of life
Fun-loving
Adventurous

THE GREY GANG

Members of this clan know that grey will always deliver a super chic space. Some may combine it with other classic colourways such as yellow or blue, but it’s simple, stylish grey they always prefer to incorporate on beds, walls, floors, curtains and accessories – anywhere and everywhere really!

Described themselves as:

Orderly and organised
Balanced
Considerate
Dependable

THE DREAM CATCHERS

This group loves delicate yet inspiring decor, like floral fabrics, tapestries and intricate paisley prints.

Creative by nature, their bedrooms are a place to unwind and contemplate; nothing should be too tidy or structured.

The dream catchers are drawn to designs connected with the natural world. Floaty, bohemian fabrics, haphazard wildflower designs and meadow green or sky-blue colourways, make up the whimsical style needed by these fanciful fellows.

Described themselves as:

Dreamers and thinkers
Sensitive
Reflective/imaginative

Strong values

THE RACY SET (SEXY)

As mysterious and magnetic as the folk who reside in them, bedrooms curated by the racy set are dark, decadent and filled with inviting materials to titillate the senses.

Characterised by rich colour choices like amethyst, mulberry and deep charcoal – some may also venture into the realms of a red room!

Tactility is key for those in this sensuous circle, so expect lots of plush materials like silk, velvet, faux fur and even feathers.  Subdued lighting is also a must.

Described themselves as:

Natural leaders
Impatient and do-ers (practical)
Romantic
Live fast paced lives

THE CLEAR CLAN – ALL WHITE/MINIMALIST

Finding colour a distraction, the clear clan craves a fresh palette of white and pale neutrals.

This bedroom style is immaculate. Pure and simple!

Whether they incorporate clean scandi lines or opt for a more traditional take, a clutter free space is essential for this group of minimalists to get a good night’s rest.

Described themselves as:

Keep things simple/organised
Open minded
Easily distracted
Friendly

THE BAROQUE BRIGADE

For some, these rooms schemes can be overwhelming, but not to the Baroque Brigade who love to fill bedrooms with ornate mirrors, picture frames, trinkets and vases with a grand, vintage feel.

They feel most at home in a decorative, flamboyant bedroom that reflects their exuberant personalities.

Described themselves as:

Warm/open
Romantic
Creative
Individual/unique
