5 Ways To Use Patterns In The Bedroom

Add some pizzazz to create a stylish sleeping space

When you want a space to look calm, you often go for light colors and plain bed linens. But you can make the bedroom look as such and also add a bit of personality through the use of patterns. Whether you like bold or simple ones, here are a few ideas on how you can inject these details: 

1. Mix subtle prints with a bold wallpaper.

Interior designer Van Acuna Solana let the sweet and feminine personality of the homeowner shine even in the sleeping area. The hot pink headboard is as strong as the wallpaper yet they don’t compete with each other. The floral design on the duvet and pillows keep the bed from being overpowered by those strong details.  

2. Create a cheerful look.

The butter yellow walls alone make this bedroom look happy. This is even more underscored by a multi-colored duvet and pillows. 

3. Place dark prints against a light background.

The dominance of white makes this bedroom serene, but the addition of patterns by way of accent pillows and throws keep it from looking clinical. Dark shades of blue create a striking contrast. 

4. Combine patterns with textures.

The pillows sport simple patterns, but this bedroom is far from plain, thanks to the fluffy bed cover that makes the bed cozy.

5. Use patterns even in a masculine space.

Dark and warm colors can make a masculine space more appealing, too. Interior designer Melissa Arriola made this combination work in a young professional’s 24sqm studio unit. The patterns on the bed as well as the wall accents keep the room from looking basic.
