When you've had a long day and all you want to do is curl up in bed and catch some zzz's, make sure you're doing so in a gorgeous, beautifully designed bedroom. A bedroom should also represent your unique style, which may be seen in the color of the walls—bold or soothing?—as well as the bed frame and nightstand you select. It's a big list of design decisions, but we're here to help with some much-needed inspiration, as always. We've compiled a long list of bedrooms that will appeal to just about everyone's tastes. Rest well!
A simple square, triangle, or diamond can sometimes make the most interior impression.
A bronze chandelier, silk drapes and shade, and a multicolored patterned spread, a wooden side table or nightstand are just some ideas to mix geometrical forms in your bedroom.
GO FOR THE GOLD
It is sometimes advantageous to delve into historical colors and styles.
Bedrooms are a haven above all else, therefore peace and quiet should reign supreme. Choosing a gold color scheme can add a tranquil feel to your bedroom.
If you have a favorite design, why not use it on the walls, beds, and curtains? This can provide a sense of joy and whimsy.
Your walls, bed curtains, and headboard can all be made of a fabric with your favorite pattern.
Sometimes nothing but a bespoke headboard, or colorful ottoman can suffice.
WAYS TO HAVE FUN WITH FABRICS
The fabrics can take center stage in your bedroom. A mint-green curtain could complement a purple bedding and similarly moody toss pillows in the bedroom.
Bedrooms should not be boring. Pink bedspreads and canopies can lend a playful feel to your or your children’s bedroom.
Rather than going overboard with design, your bedroom could be neutral in design and color. How about adding a splash of color via artwork. Sometimes the simplest design is the most effective.
A tapestry is an excellent alternative to artwork over the bed if you're concerned about something collapsing in the middle of the night, especially in an earthquake-prone area like Los Angeles.
Bright, vibrant colors are appealing, but they are not for everyone. Those looking for a more relaxed aesthetic will appreciate more cool tones like a cool blue or purple. Interior harmony is achieved by blending several tones of olive, terra-cotta, and blue.
PLAY WITH PURPLE
How about combining lavender with orange and natural light from the great outdoors to create a classic-yet-modern look.
SUIT THE OCCASION
Moody colors are wonderful for a backdrop—even better if they're one-of-a-kind.
