Fairy Lights Are Perfect For Above The Bed Wall Decor

Fairy lights and bed decorations go hand in hand! Fairy light decorations in the bedroom can be a romantic addition to cosy things up. Fairy lights make home interiors look dreamy and beautiful. You can DIY with the popular copper string lights with photograph decoration on the wall behind your bed or wrap the light strings on your bed headboard. We decorated this bedroom with a simple string of classic light bulbs above the wooden finish bed’s wooden headboard. We kept the bed decor subtle with a set of grey satin big pillows and white small pillows, white blanket with a grey throw over it. Keep the light fixtures dim and warm yellow to create a cosy ambience.

A Floor To Ceiling Headboard Defines Luxurious Comfort

Want some ultra-luxurious feels for your bedroom? This one is the perfect lavish bed decoration idea for your home! You will need a full cushion double bed for this look. The floor to ceiling padded headboard is a dramatic bed decoration that also brings extra comfort and luxury to the bedroom. Use deep colour combinations for the bed cushions to avoid monotony. Add a sleek pendant light instead of conventional nightstand lamps to maintain the bedroom’s luxurious appeal. This type of bed decor would work great if your room has less height.

White And Biophilia Bed Decor Ideas Are Great For Small Bedrooms

Wondering what to do when there’s not enough space in your bedroom? You can go for a compact bed with storage and a head shelf for this bed decor look. These will keep things organised, making your small bedroom look spacious. You can introduce some twists to the bed decoration with biophilic elements. We have used small planters on the headboard and nightstands. The natural green and subtle white turn the bedroom into a perfect haven, creating an intensely serene ambience. Use light colour bed dressings such as white and peach to match this subtle biophilic look.

Try Natural Materials Like Jute Or Bamboo For Your Bed Decor Ideas

Natural materials are the new concrete! They are human-friendly, organic and often created by local vendors — hence you can contribute to the local economy.
