Many bedrooms tend to get neglected. Get your minds out of the gutter, I’m talking about through decoration. My first apartment bedroom was so boring that it would put you to sleep…no pun intended….
Many people honestly think that all you need is a bed, a bed stand, an alarm clock, and a dresser for your bedroom to be good to go. That’s awesome if you want your bedroom being as boring a hospital room.
We spend countless hours decorating our living areas, so why forget about the bedroom? And I will not accept the excuse that you don’t spend money or time with the bedroom because no one sees it but you. You know that’s not true or at least you know that you hope that’s not true.
There are a number of ideas out there for decorating your bedroom in many different ways. A contemporary bedroom looks clean, smooth, and is easy to obtain. Check out these ideas for contemporizing your apartment bedroom:
Black and White– This is common, but it looks really awesome. Do everything in black and white. It says sophistication, while creating a fun energy. A white bedspread with black pillows or black and white throws is the way to go. Plus, its hard to see drool on a black pillow. You might also decorate the wall with black and white photos of your friends in black frames. This is my favorite and a very sleek look.
Combine Some Styles– You might try decorating your room in a combination of contemporary and traditional. Add a flare of traditional with a floral printed pair of throw pillows or throw blanket on a bed with otherwise solid color. This leaves some flexibility with your wall decoration and table pieces. You could go contemporary with styled art, or you could go traditional with flowers and patterns. Remember…traditional is full of color and patterns and modern is a smooth solid color feel.
Be Bold– You like to make statements? Well be bold in your design with vibrant color and many patterns. Have fun with all your decorating. Try bold, matching black and white patterns for the bedspread, wall paper, etc and off set these with vibrant colorful accessories. It will definitely make a statement.
Class and a Wooden Bed Frame– Add some class to your wood toned bed frame. Get a tan bedspread to offset the dark wood. Use dark throw pillow covers. Make sure to have a good combination of light and dark varying shades of brown and tan. Don’t go with black or white…these will not match your wooden bed frame.
The important thing to remember is that you should decorate how YOU want to. In the end this is your bedroom and you are the one who has to live in it, so you may as well love it. Good luck!
