Alternative Room Decor Bedroom Inspiration
Alternative Room Decor – Most of the time, the bedroom is the last room to be renovated. I’m not sure why. Perhaps it is the only room that is least visible to our guests and we don’t feel the pressure to update it. However, you spend a lot of time in the bedroom and owe it to yourself to have a place where you can retreat so that you feel relaxed and content.
Once you’re ready to loosen your wallet and spend decent decoration money on yourself, all you need is inspiration. Here are some current ideas that will stimulate your creative decorative juices.
Start with a neutral canvas with light, soothing colors like cream, wheat, linen or brown and similar carpet colors. Add color with fabric and accessories. Don’t be afraid to use stripes or floral patterns for curtains and add colorful accent pillows or side chairs.
Add a traditional chandelier for lighting and additional smaller wall lights.
Try adding decorative shelves with attractive flowers or sculptures instead of decorating the wall above the bed with a large picture.
Another alternative to a large picture on a bed is a group or three similar smaller prints.
Make a small sitting or meditation area with lights, small tables, and chairs.
Hang a silk roof that flows from the ceiling.
For a romantic and sensual look, use dark orange or gold on the wall with plum-colored sheets or accessories. Accented with wrought iron curtain rods and candle holders.
Mix blue, dark blue, and brown for a full and rich look.
Revitalize the old headboard by covering it with microfiber, suede or leather.
If you’re using a neutral palette, season with a pillow, chair, or thick red and black vase.
Decorate with seasonal themes. Warm yellow and sunflowers are reminiscent of summer. Small floral prints and fresh green accents and pastel colors are reminiscent of spring.
Hang your curtains on the ceiling and let them hang on the floor. Curtains hanging too close to the window frame make the ceiling appear lower and the whole room looks darker. A good rule of thumb for installing curtain poles is to place them 6 inches to 1 foot above the window shape.
When you start decorating, start with an empty room and gradually add furniture and accessories. Remember more or less. A messy bedroom won’t calm your nerves when you retire at night.
