The bedroom is a well-defined space in a house. Private, intimate, it must reflect the personality of its occupant, adult or child, without necessarily corresponding to the style of the rest of the house. Everything is allowed for the decoration of the room, just let your creativity speak.
The different styles
A separate room in the house, the bedroom is a personal space. It must correspond to everyone’s desires, to find serenity and appeasement. For the decoration of the room, some will turn to a Scandinavian style, for a cocooning spirit at will. Others will lean for an industrial style, for its more urban side, still others for a more classic style. Discover the style that suits you best and be inspired by our examples.
Very popular today, the Scandinavian style has clean lines. He relies on soft shades, pastel shades, and natural, cozy materials. The walls are painted white or very light beige to enhance the feeling of space. A wall can however accommodate a duck blue or charcoal gray color, to echo the geometric shapes printed on cushions or curtains. In this Scandinavian bedroom, cocooning is in the spotlight: very soft plaids are welcome, such as large comfortable cushions and furry poufs. An office is simple and functional, with a Scandinavian chair, will invite you to write. On the decorative side, wood must be present in small touches, for example in the form of a natural wood headboard or a driftwood chandelier.
Very urban, the industrial style will be materialized in a room by brick walls. If you prefer painting, have at least one wall painted in charcoal gray or tobacco brown, to bring an urban touch to your interior. This type of bedroom decoration accommodates metal in all its forms: from wall lights to construction site lamps, including changing room lockers recycled into wardrobes or a reclaimed metal bed. All ideas are good. If you have a master bedroom with a bathroom, the workshop canopy is the essential partition of the industrial style. Well in tune with the times, this type of partition is not likely to go out of fashion. Thanks to its glazing, your bathroom benefits from natural light. You have the choice between transparent glazing or, on the contrary, frosted, for more privacy. Finally, add large clocks showing the time of several mega-cities,
The ethnic room invites you to travel. For one night, it allows you to escape to the rhythm of colors and materials. To achieve an ethnic bedroom, first act sparingly, the fabrics and rugs are often already very colorful. Above all, try to stick to a single theme, choosing a region of the world and sticking to it. Celebrate the Orient with thick rugs, colored tadelakts plaster, and openwork wrought iron lights. Evoke Africa with brightly colored drapes, wooden masks on the walls, and colorful cushions. Everything is possible to furnish an ethnic bedroom, as long as you stick to an idea so as not to turn your bedroom into Ali Baba’s cave!
Modern design style
Lovers of sanitized white, this style is for you! From the walls to the floor, including the furniture, white is in the spotlight! The shape of the furniture will be minimalist or, on the contrary, complex, but always square. Round shapes should be banned! In the modern design bedroom, light sources play an extremely important role in the setting. Passing through the wall coverings, plunging in circular rays from the ceiling, emerging from the base of a cocoon bed diffusing soothing sounds to ensure a good night’s sleep, light must be a major player in your modern designer bedroom. In terms of decoration, be parsimonious. This style does not support too many objects.
Classic chic style
In this type of room, the atmosphere is serene, cozy, and romantic. The bed is the flagship element. A padded headboard in pastel tones will be a plus. Here, the sheets are white, if possible with English embroidery, the bedspreads in noble materials such as silk. Consoles and dressers will be chosen in weathered wood to evoke the boudoir atmosphere. A shepherdess placed in a corner of the room will add to the cachet. On the floor, lay a light-colored floating parquet, partially covered with a white or beige short-pile carpet, and, on the walls, choose a pastel or taupe paint to reinforce the soft and peaceful atmosphere. Other good ideas to complete your classic chic bedroom, adorn your windows with velvet curtains or bet on moldings on the walls.
You are fond of retro, flea markets, and discoveries of wonders in the attics of your grandparents … you will like this style of the room. You will be able to dare the four-poster bed or very worked wrought iron, the canopy in draped silk or heavy velvet, bring out the Tiffany lamps on varnished wooden bedside tables and the charming desk from the 1930s! Paint a deep color on one of the walls: petrol blue, purple, or mustard yellow, to create contrast and give the bed a backdrop. A natural wood floor, laid in herringbone, Hungarian point, or covered with cement tiles by a good craftsman, will add further character to your vintage bedroom!
Country chic style
Scented with lavender and small bouquets of freshly picked flowers, this room exudes natural relaxation. Under a beamed frame: a bed in oak or chestnut wood covered with a thick mattress and light-colored sheets. Natural textiles are in the spotlight here, along with cotton or linen. The crochet or quilted bedspread will further reinforce this country atmosphere, as will the patinated wood bedside tables with lamps with large shades. Curtains delicately embroidered with flowers will adorn the windows and a dressing table topped with a framed mirror will further add to the charm of the decor. The subdued, indirect lights will be privileged in this room so that it retains its very warm atmosphere.
If you love color, this bedroom style is for you. With it, you can multiply the bright and acidulous colors to excess and play with contrasts. Red is not afraid of green and yellow faces blue. This style is also that of geometric patterns on the walls. They will be as big as you want them to be. Canvases reproducing scenes or characters from your favorite comics or reproductions of Andy Warhol, where color reigns supreme, will also be there. The furniture, too, can play with color, just like the curtains, blinds, or linens. To fully play the authentic card, go hunting in flea markets, looking for period furniture, lighting (ceiling lights and bedside lamps) in the tangy tones characteristic of the Pop years. Finally,
