The bedroom may not be the most visual room of the house for your guests, but it is by you. Style and design aren’t elements to just show off to your guests; it’s an element for you to enjoy, and so it makes sense to enjoy decor in all areas of the house, including the master bedroom.
What Bedroom Decor Styles Should I Choose?
Boho- If you enjoy natural textures, neutral bases, and vibrant accent colors, boho style is right for you. Boho highlights natural materials, neutral colors, and a sense of youthfulness.
Farmhouse/Country/Rustic- Farmhouse loves its use of black and white, weathered textures, and overall presents itself as warm and welcoming. Country does the same, although it can sometimes include more knick-knacks and well-loved pieces. Rustic design takes the weathered look another step further by including a lot of wood tones that may be darker than others, and the plantlife it includes is more woodsy as opposed to lighter farmhouse colored plants.
Coastal/Nautical- Coastal style is for those who love the beach or the feeling of it.This design style uses tans, beige, and whites along with blues and greens to create tranquil spaces.
Modern- Modern style thrives on clean-cut lines, simplicity, and practicality. Artwork is often more abstract and the base colors are minimal, but modern design can present pops of color and texture in fun and unique ways.
There are many design styles out there, and oftentimes, styles are mixed to create a blend of whatever you personally like. Don’t be afraid to combine styles in your bedroom!
What Accessories Should Every Bedroom Have?
Bed Set- How you stylize your bed is a key factor in your bedroom decor. There’s comforters with patterns, some solid, some textured, some quilted, and so on. Upgrading to a new bed set with the comforter, sheets, and pillow shams is a quick and easy way to revamp your master bedroom.
Throw Pillows and Blankets- While it’s easy to fall into the mindset of just doing the bed set and that’s it, adding in other throw pillows and blankets is perfect for adding in more personality, texture, and warmth. Both the pillows and throw blankets are essential bedroom accessories that can naturally add in your accent colors and accent patterns.
Rug- Rugs do well to establish a bedroom’s tone, mood, and style. Distressed rugs accentuate traditional, rustic, and farmhouse designs, while cleaner geometric rugs highlight modern design. Whichever style you fit into, a rug is not only beautiful, but it’s functional to step onto a soft surface every morning and as you get ready for your day.
Lighting- Having lamps on nightstands, pendant lighting, or even a chandelier are just a few bright ideas on how to incorporate light into the bedroom. Lighting is a huge part of your bedroom decor, even if you don’t think about it at first.
Wall Art- Using wall art in your bedroom decor is an optimal way to accentuate the style, add in accent colors, and show your personality. Many spaces are big enough for one central piece of art, but there’s also the option of creating a collage of artwork with bought pieces or personal ones.
Plants- Both faux and real plants are popping up in bedrooms, and for good reason. The natural green tones of plants add an air of life and lightness into any room, and just about any design style has room for a plant or two as bedroom accessories.
What Colors Should I Add To My Bedroom?
What colors you use depends highly on your personal style, but one tip to remember is that you don’t want to use too many bold, vibrant colors. A bedroom is a space to wind down and rest, so use calming colors. Neutrals are always a safe bet, but you can also use more muted shades of your favorite blues and greens. If you like more drama in your style, go for bold, dark colors like deep forest greens and blacks.
