Bedroom Decor, Colors, Accents and Design Ideas

The bedroom decor is often overlooked.

After all, most homeowners are more concerned about getting the decor in the rest of the house just right, and neglect their own bedroom.

It’s easier to fall asleep if the master bedroom is calm, clean and put together.

It also helps in the romance department if the room is a little getaway from everyday life.

Choose calm colors for the room. Blues, greens and tans are colors that soothe the eyes and mind and are very easy to compliment with colors on bedspreads and accessories.

If the walls are blue, a brown or pristine white bedspread looks nice. Tan walls give a clean slate as almost any color coordinates with tan.

Bedroom Decor

Do not put too many things on the walls or shelves. Keep the decorations simple with only a few pictures on the walls or a few floating shelves with only one vase on each of them.

Display knick-knacks in a spare room or somewhere else but retain a few sentimental items in your bedroom decor.

Don’t underestimate the candle factor. Candles are romantic because they elicit the feeling of warmth and sensuality. Romance comes in two forms with candles; appearance and scent. A few scented candles or a candle in a small, crystal bowl surrounded by rose petals is a great way to see the romance.

A comfortable bed is key, but a comfortable looking bed is also important to the bedroom decor. Down comforters, or even a down alternative, are extremely fluffy and just beg to be laid on. They are more of a winter blanket but in the hotter months they look just as nice folded at the end of the bed with crisp bright sheets underneath.

Curtains are also important to the feel of a room. Sheer curtains are great for bedroom decor, but if you are like me, you hate a bright room first thing in the morning! So room-darkening vertical blinds are paired with sheer curtains. The color should correspond with the bedspread or compliment the color of the walls.

Last but certainly not least is the topic of a television in the bedroom. There are studies stating that a television in the bedroom cuts a couple’s intimacy in half. I happen to be of the belief that if I am in my bedroom I am doing one of two things, neither of which involve the television. But, if you insist on having a TV in your room, put the television in an armoire. The television is still in the bedroom but it’s not a focal point.
