Your bedroom should be a personal getaway that expresses your favorite colors, feelings, and collections. For most people, their bedroom is a powerful expression of who they are and what makes them feel at home. There’s a lot that goes into the process of making it aesthetically pleasing, and you may not be aware of some agreed-upon tips by designers.
Here’s how to decorate a beautiful bedroom:
Rather than bold primary colors, consider soothing shades and a restful palette of monochromatic tones. Keep color theory in mind: gentle hues of blue, lavender or green are considered calm and serene. Rich, jewel-toned hues set the mood of coziness and comfort. Use toned-down versions of your favorite colors in the bedroom.
Don’t ignore the ceiling
The ceiling is the fifth wall in a room. When you lie in bed, do you see a bland surface? Consider adding a subtle pattern or soft color. Paint the ceiling a slightly lighter version of the wall color to visually lower the ceiling and give the space a feeling of comfort and intimacy.
Keep it simple
Your bedroom should look cozy and simple, sophisticated, and elegant, regardless of your preferred style of decorating. Furnish your bedroom with only what you need: a bed, a bedside table or two, a dresser, and chair are necessities. Anything else is clutter.
Have plenty of storage
To add to the serene feeling of a bedroom, store things out of sight. The room will appear more calm and roomy. As an example, use a trunk or a storage bench at the foot of the bed to store extra sheets, blankets, and pillows.
Include a private nook
Give yourself a special gift with a quiet place to sit and read. Create an intimate reading or lounging area with a comfortable chair and footstool at the end of your bed or in a corner.
