With a living room dedicated to color, I figured it might be a wise decision to not follow the exact same formula when it came to decorating my bedroom. Where a living room is a showpiece to share with friends visiting, your bedroom is a more private space, one that doesn’t need all the bells and whistles that your living room or dining room might need.
The one thing I wanted to make sure this bedroom did have, was its own personality. Where as my living space embraces every color of the rainbow, I decided to keep things calmer and more streamlined here. My last bedroom was a deeper charcoal, but with so much natural light (and more space) in this one, I decided to lighten it up with this Italian Plaster color. This allowed for virtually any color to really pop against it.
As a big fan of blue, I really wanted to incorporate a rich navy tone and that worked beautifully in the form of my tufted headboard. I scooped up this one on sale. If you’re not in the financial place to buy a whole need bed, sometimes a headboard is a cost effective solution. I went with the velvet material because it gives me that hotel vibe.
In my last space, I didn’t have room for a proper side table or dresser, so these items were must haves. I typically don’t like matching sets, but because I fell in love with the midcentury color blocked style of these, I let my own preferences slide. Having the white cabinets helps give that hotel feel to space and keep it bright.
With a really calming palette, I wanted to keep artwork and other bedding in blacks and whites. Although the space doesn’t use a pop of color, the scale of photos and decor pieces help. From the oversized paint brunch to personal artwork and photos, it feels polished but casual. I’ve really been loving the look when you don’t even hang your artwork, instead just you just lean it up against the wall or shelf.
My bedding sticks to the classic hotel style, another on sale find from West Elm, and I found this fun tapestry, that I had converted into a pillow, during a trip to Atlanta earlier this year. A long mirror and vintage salmon leather chair complete the furnishings and make the room feel finished.
At the end of the day, literally, your bedroom should be a calming and restful space for you, and that’s exactly what this space is for me. More home tips and details to come soon,
