More often than not, your bedroom is the only space in your beloved abode that you get a chance to personalise in toto according to your own sense of style. Your bedroom is a personal haven of round the clock pyjama hangouts, deep thoughts and snory snuggles. Other common rooms, not so much, right? So we guess it’s safe to say that the one room in your casa that ultimately reflects parts of your personality has got to be dead-on in terms of design and decor! Straight out of your ‘pinned on Pinterest’ feed, these 10 bedroom decoration ideas will give you more than just a head start to turn your cosy cocoon into all things a la mode!

Bedroom Decoration For Small Spaces

The bedroom of your imagination probably looks like the movie Casino Royale with pink satin sheets, long see-through curtain drapes and enough room for a mini hangout spot within this space. If a lack of space is what’s curbing this dream, don’t fret. You can have all these things well even with limited floor space. Just ensure your bedroom decor aligns with one major goal: space creation. Whether you achieve this by adding glass elements and large mirrors, or have a low-lying bed that makes your ceiling look high – add more bedroom decoration elements to declutter. Sounds contradictory but works like a charm!

Shower (Some) Flower Power

Bold pastels make for chic bedroom backdrops and instantly lighten the mood. Adding a floral wallpaper, even to one wall of your bedroom can give it a real nice bohemian touch to it. To accessorise this whole look, you can even choose to interject a pair of hanging pendant lights and a bamboo ottoman that is sure to create magic.

Less Is More

Wellness enthusiasts aren’t fibbing when they preach that all forms of entertainment must be left outside of your bedroom door. This ensures you have a serene, good night’s sleep with the least bit of disturbance. So while decorating your cosy cocoon, be sure to keep things simple. Attempting to spruce up with unnecessary accessories might only add to clutter. There is far more style in simplicity than you would assume. A calming wallpaper with warm colours, a few family photos and a vintage rustic dresser, and you’ve hit the room’s absolute sweet spot!

Black Magic (With Touches Of White)

If there’s one colour to have conquered hearts in every space, it’s black. Home interior decoration is no exception! A monochrome design adds so much class to an otherwise boring bedroom. The best part about all-white walls and a play of black and grey elements to spruce it up is that you can change your mind about this monochrome mania anytime you feel like it.

Layers and Patterns For Bedroom Decoration

The simplest way to bring life to a dull bedroom setup is by indulging in trendy pattern play. You can take your pick of silk and linens between wide stripes, abstract geometrical patterns and tropical prints to bring life to your bedroom interior. Who knew changing sheets could make so much of a difference, right? Besides contemporary patterns for your linens layered with velvet and satin pillows can make your bedroom feel a lot cosier and more comfortable, too!

Have Fun With Headboards For Bedroom Decor

Besides being storage ninjas that help you declutter your room making it look nice and tidy, your bed’s headboard can be designed to give it a chicer vibe. Light ceramics or decorative hardwood panels can be set against alluring geometric wallpaper to step up your bed game.

Play With Lights

“It’s all about good lighting” – this is as true for interior décor as it is for Instagram pictures, to be frank. You can literally set your mood at any given period based on what lighting you decide to install in your bedroom. Aim to have separate lights for all the 3Rs – reading, romance and rest and you’ll come to see just how much lighting in your bedroom interior plan matters.

Beyond The Four Walls of your Bedroom

Besides the obvious four walls of your bedroom, your ceiling is something that needs most design investment. It is, after all, a largely glanced wall in your bedroom. You can either go crazy creative with eye-opening wallpaper prints that serve a dual purpose – sprucing up while also soothing or create a more sophisticated statement with a grand looking chandelier. Either way – don’t ignore that forgotten fifth wall!

Store Smart

The problem with a bedroom is that it takes just about a couple of minutes after cleaning a mess for it to magically muddle up again. This can be frustrating but largely avoided if you create invisible storage areas within your bedroom that save the day. In headboards, under beds and inside ottomans – storage is a necessity so you ought to create more.

The Window Affair

If space is not a restriction, a great way to level up your bedroom game is by creating a cranny near your bedroom window to make it your own recess/introspection spot. Enjoy some fresh air with hot cocoa, watch the rain, read a book – because life is too short to be anything but deeply dramatic!
