Modern bedroom decor at its core is all about beauty in simplicity. It’s a style that often works with a minimal color palette and minimal accessories to create uncluttered, stunning spaces.
How Can I Make My Bedroom Look More Modern?
Geometric Shapes- Shapes and lines are a huge part of modern decor, so using these patterns in the fabrics and specifically in a rug seriously highlights modern style.
Wall Art- Modern bedroom decor tends to be abstract, personal, or focused on nature. Abstract and natural artwork is simple enough, but personal photographs of traveling or important places are great for modern decor. After all, since modern style uses so little in ways of decor, using personal artwork not only serves a decorative purpose, but it also serves the purpose of showing off your values or what experiences you’ve had.
Accessories-In modern master bedroom decor, you often see elements like plants, books, and geometric shelf-sitters. If your version of modern design blends with other popular designs like Boho, then you may also include tapestries on the walls and use potted plants with woven pots.
Rugs- Rugs that show off geometric shapes or use lines in their design fit in with modern master bedroom decor. They can fit into a neutral color scheme, or they can be darker to add visual interest or harken to another design style.
Fabrics- Throw pillows, blankets, and bedding are all a huge part in defining your modern bedroom decor. Often the bedding is a mixture of solid colors, while the blankets and pillows show off different patterns or add in pops of non-neutral colors into the room.
What Colors Work With Modern Bedroom Decor?
Modern bedrooms are best known for working with stark black and white, but modern is also a style that blends well with other popular design fads. So, here’s a basic rundown of what colors you can use when mixing styles.
Mid-Century Modern: Yellow and blue are popular accent colors that can appear boldly as all the wall colors or as the main bedding.
Modern Boho: Tan and white tend to be the base colors, and a lot of the accents are woven and natural materials. However, this style also uses an abundance of plant life and greens along with earthy tones and teals. With modern boho, there’s really no limit to which colors you can include.
Modern Farmhouse/ Modern Coastal: Both of these styles love white, but farmhouse tends to be more black and white while coastal definitely adds in more navy and green.
Modern Country/Modern French Country: Country and French Country both love to highlight nature by using light toned wood in the furniture and decor. Accent colors tend to be muted blues, yellows, and greens.
Modern Rustic/Modern Vintage: Modern rustic decor also uses wood as a huge part of its design, but it uses wood that looks clean and refined as opposed to the well-loved look you sometimes see in other rustic designs. As for vintage, they use pieces that look like they have history to them, but they are in like-new condition so they fit the clean and polished look of modern design.
Modern Tuscan/Traditional: Both of these styles tend to be a little more ornate, although that detailing is still reined in to fit with modern minimalism. Brown tones such as cream and beige fit into this style, and so does wood and stonework.
Is Modern Bedroom Decor Going Out Of Style?
Modern bedroom decor highlights finding beauty in simplicity. Because it’s focused on such a simple concept, it plays well with other popular design styles. Modern interior design will stay in style for a while longer, and it will continue to influence all the other popular design styles out there.
