Your bedroom is easily one of the most used rooms in your house. It can be a great space to re-watch your favorite movie, endlessly scroll through Instagram, spend some quality (ahem) time with your partner, or take countless naps throughout the day (quarantine, amirite?). We think it only fair to transform your favorite space into a contemporary work of art. Don’t worry, it’s not as complicated as it sounds. Our expert designers have a few tips and tricks up their sleeves for ya!
We’re going to let you in on a well-kept secret…neutral tones are the easiest way to give your space a super chic and contemporary look. The Lubi Natural Sleeper Daybed by CB2 is the perfect addition to your bedroom space. Gorgeous lounge by day, comfy bed by night. Disassemble it and voila, you’ve got an oversized queen!
A little bit of this and a little bit of that puts you in the Goldilocks of sweet spots! Exude elegance with a wood and glass decor or model after minimalism with white marble and gold accents like the gorgeous Lila Oval Nightstand by Crate & Barrel. The choice is yours.
Contemporary design calls for simplicity and symmetry all around. Easy on the eyes and soothing to the OCD-stricken soul, this is exactly the calming effect you’re looking for. We love this Frame Canopy King Bed from CB2. It adds symmetry, style, and just the right amount of luxury!
When it comes to windows, the higher and wider, the better! Tall windows can lengthen the room, while the wideness of it brings in more light and the illusion of a larger space. Accessorize your windows with light-colored curtains like these neutral almost-sheer curtains from CB2 and you’ll be good to go.
It pulls everything together! Ground your room with a good-sized rug that ties all the beautiful pieces in your space together. We’re especially fond of the Kirk Color Block Rug from Crate & Barrel. Its abstract design and neutral tones balance the room while adding a touch of modern geometry.
Add He(ART) To Your Decor
Bring in pops of color to your room’s palette with statement-making art pieces. Choose muted tones if you’re going for a monochromatic vibe or go with vibrant colors if you want to break that monotony with a stand-out piece.
Place designer benches or chairs for seating around the room. A statement dresser or vanity makes for a great conversation starter. We especially love the Ingram 6-Drawer Dresser from Anthropologie. Put this in your bedroom and get ready for a shower of compliments!
Use your bedding to play with monochromatic colors by layering different textures for variety and style. You can switch it up by using different shades of the same color for a tone-on-tone look. Faux fur throws like this one from Anthropologie are sure to make your bed more inviting and irresistible than ever!
Take your time choosing your final stand-out accent pieces. They can really tie the decor of your room together. It can be anything from an elegant side table to a sophisticated bedside lamp, or even this luxe Link Ivory Storage Bench. Not only does it add panache to the room, it also doubles up as a storage space!
