The holidays are here and there’s little time to sleep but rest easy with this Decor Guide on how to add elegance to your bedroom and treat yourself. By the way, we are treated with another informative article from Chloe Taylor. Please read her bio at the end of this post.
Spending time in a nicely-decorated space can make us feel inspired and truly rewarded. Therefore, it’s only natural that we want our bedrooms to look sophisticated and posh. Even though this could seem like a significant task, if you take a look at our list of ideas on how to introduce elegance into your bedroom, you’ll see that you can achieve some amazing results in no time. Let’s take a look and let the redecoration may begin!
First things first, you can’t expect your bedroom to look elegant if it’s overcrowded with furniture and accessories that are not nicely balanced. Instead, you should go minimalistic and equip the room with the essential pieces only. Of course, once you have set the base, you can start introducing other elements, but be careful here since you can easily go overboard and turn your bedroom into a disorganized space filled with kitsch items that just becomes more clutter.
Choose the Right Color Scheme
If you manage to come up with the right colors for your bedroom, your job will be halfway finished. For instance, you should think in terms of all those soothing nature-inspired shades and patterns, such as oak brown, light beige and grass green, since they tend to have a relaxing effect on our brain. After all, once you enter your bedroom, you want to feel completely in touch with your inner self and get a chance to unwind from all the accumulated stress, which piles up especially during the holidays. Having this in mind, you’ll understand why opting for some strong garish patterns would be a disastrous mistake, which would hinder your peace as well as the elegance of the room.
Pay Close Attention to Details
Sometimes all it takes to style up the room and fill it with elegance is introducing a couple of interesting details. For example, you can start by choosing new chic patterned bedding. This will be enough to break the monotony and speak volumes about your modern taste. Additionally, think about introducing a couple of colorful cushions that will make your bed super-comfy and bring in some liveliness to the room. You can even express your own creativity and try to design some fabulous cushion covers on your own. Or, Casart Coverings makes this easy with Faux Padded Headboards and other self-adhesive wallcovering solutions that add instant elegance, create a visually soft setting that can coordinate with many designs (including custom) and consequently, update a bedroom masterfully.
Enrich Your Bedroom with Beautiful Fragrances
Apart from seeing to it that your bedroom is visually appealing, you should enrich it with an enjoyable scent as well. For instance, you can bring in beautiful lavender essential oil or invest in quality scented candles, or vaporizer which will further contribute to creating a luxurious and inviting atmosphere. These soothing fragrances can positively stimulate your brain and are also perfect for romantic evenings with your partner. Remember that we all deserve to be pampered every now and then and feel like true royalty.
Use Soft Lighting
Lighting can have a tremendous impact on the entire look of the room, so you should choose it carefully. First, you should definitely avoid harsh lights which will cast annoying shadows all over the room and make your furniture look much less attractive. Instead, keep your fixtures low and don’t forget to install dimmer switches that will help you adjust the light to your mood and the occasion. Finally, adding a vintage orange lamp to your nightstand will be both practical and absolutely stylish.
Focus on the Floor
You may want your bedroom to look as elegant as the ones seen in a luxurious five-star hotel, but this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t also focus on achieving that warm homey feel that you can get only in your own house. For this reason, remember to cover your floor with an attractive rug that brings in natural color and coordinates with the soothing colors mentioned above. Soft, tightly woven or even jute rugs are easy to maintain and will absolutely tie the whole room together. You can choose among various colors, patterns and go for a big one which will cover a larger area for a more luxurious vibe. Finally, you can also use this comfy rug to bring more color into the bedroom palette and truly sweep all your friends off their feet.
As you can see, decorating your bedroom to look super-elegant and trendy can be a piece of cake if you let your imagination run wild and are ready to accept some innovative solutions. Lastly, don’t be afraid to add your personal touch, since it’s most important that you feel comfortable and happy while spending time in your home.
