6 Bold Bedroom Decorating Ideas You Can Work On
Layer patterns, prints, and colors to create an exceptional sleeping space
If you're a fan of over-the-top design and have a tendency to decorate each and every nook of the home, chances are, you're fond of the maximalist style. While minimalist spaces are well-kept and relaxing, you find solace in bold colors and artworks, finding chunky accessories much more appealing than small and dainty ones.
Those who are planning to transform their room into maximalist-inspired spaces might be worried about finding the right balance or how to achieve a cohesive look. If you're not careful, your room can look more cluttered than accessorized. To help you out and give you a couple of ideas, here are lovely bedrooms worth checking out:
1. Work with a central piece.
Once you have your choice of accent piece, work your design around it. As seen in the photo above, the floral wallpaper draws attention while serving as a backdrop to the bed and furnishings dominated by light hues and shades. Colors and prints for the pillowcases are well-selected to complement the wallpaper and echo the florals.
2. Find unifying elements.
In this room, the frames, neutral shades, and pops of red keep the look coordinated. The frames help make the artworks look more contained and manageable. Meanwhile, the gray wall and recurring touches of red keep the room from looking like a haphazardly decorated space.
3. Anchor the look with a gallery wall.
Turn a bare wall into a personalized gallery of photographs and souvenirs. Once you're done sprucing up the wall, check for dominant colors and use it as basis for the colors of your throws, sheets, and pillowcases.
4. Never forget white.
If painting an accent wall or setting up a gallery wall isn't part of your plans, you may choose to leave it blank and white. It can serve as the ideal canvas for your bed filled with bold colors, prints, and patterns. Maintain the overall look and feel by adding small accent pieces that complement the main colors of your beddings.
5. Unexpected details always pack a punch.
Keep in mind that you don't need to fill your room with plenty of accessories to achieve a maximalist look. Opt for visual impact by choosing an unusual print for your walls like a zebra print or a unique pattern featuring catchy colors. Pastel hues and pops of brights can make the overall look more pleasant than confusing.
6. Choose your colors wisely.
While quirky color combos and out-of-this-world pairings can make your room even more interesting and special, it might not contribute to the overall look you have in mind. Knowing what kind of color harmony to use can help make your space less of an eyesore. The bedroom above combines colors that sit next to each other on the color wheel, completing an analogous color scheme that works even if it's heavy on the prints.
