Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne

And just look at that... wonderful mirrored canopy bed! Takeaway tip: If you want to use very strong furnishings in the bedroom, keep your palette soft to avoid overload.Continue to 2 of 7 below.

Sarah Jessica Parker
Carrie Bradshaw’s messy, colorful bedroom on "Sex and the City" is nothing like the real-life bedroom of the actress who plays her.

Takeaway tip: While an all-white bedroom is very calming, it needs at least a little bit of contrast.

When it comes to the Kardashian clan, extravagance is the name of the game, so you should expect no less from the Los Angeles bedroom of reality TV star Kourtney Kardashian. This bedroom is full of strong patterns and metallic accents – the walls, the lamps, the curtains, the floor, the throw pillows – and yet it works without being overwhelming. That’s because the color scheme is limited to neutrals: black, cream, gold and silver. Although a palette of neutrals is sometimes dull, you’d never... call this room boring – the patterns and metallics add a ton of interest. But of course, it’s the neon “Love Me” sign that really adds the pop and sparkle. Takeaway tip: Here’s all the proof you need that one bold accent can light up an entire bedroom.Continue to 6 of 7 below.

His legendary career spans decades, and includes one of the top selling singles of all time, “Candle in the Wind,” which sold more than 33 million copies. Not surprisingly, Elton John’s Los Angeles bedroom has the same mix of over-the-top theatrics and solid style that marks his stage performances. Just imagine how comfortable that fluffy rug would feel on bare feet. The furniture all has very simple lines so as not to detract from the perfectly arranged, framed Mapplethorpe photographs on the... walls. But it’s the ceiling that steals the show here – that’s silver Mylar lining the ceiling, creating a reflective, mirror-like surface that bounces light and color around the space. Takeaway tip: Don’t forget your ceiling when it’s time to decorate. You don’t need mirrors – simply painting the ceiling a color that contrasts with the walls adds a lot of excitement to a room.Continue to 7 of 7 below.

Ellen Pompeo, award-winning star of "Grey’s Anatomy," loves to travel, and it shows in this exotic bedroom in her Hollywood Hills home. This is another room that proves a mostly-neutral palette is easily spiced up with a few touches of color and a mix of great pattern. The bronze bedside lamps add an extra touch of interest – warm metal is a refreshing switch from the ubiquitous silver. Takeaway tip: Don’t feel bound to a traditional headboard – a tapestry, quilt or even a colorful... tablecloth is a great way to fill the space and create a focal point for the room.
