Pros Of Monochromatic Bedrooms

Comments Off on Pros Of Monochromatic Bedrooms Bedroom

Regardless of it being your first time or not, thinking about the interior design of your own bedroom can be an overwhelming task. It’s not something that you’ll just be able to fully conceptualize in a few hours. The never ending options of decorating your personal space can actually sometimes be the cause of your lack of sleep. That’s perfectly understandable, though you are decorating the first room you will see once you open your eyes in the morning, of course it has to be perfect. But since you’re having a hard picking a color scheme that would perfectly blend together in your room, why don’t you go down the simple route such as choosing a monochromatic tone?

Monochromatic themed rooms may seem simple. But mind you, this trend is slowly rising in the interior designing world for a lot of reasons. The definition of a monochromatic room has changed throughout the years.  It no longer means that the chairs will have to blend with the wall, or the floors and the ceiling would look the same. This century’s monochromatic look lives upon tweaking the classic look and incorporating new things without sacrificing its simplicity.

Simple yet classy – Monochromatic rooms are known for this. Using one basic palette on your bedroom walls, floor, bed and decors can evoke simplicity and class. But just like what I said earlier, you can use contrasting shades of your primary color in order to play with things a little and not be branded as boring or old fashioned.

It’s Elegant – Just because it’s simple, does not mean it can’t be elegant. What’s great about an effective and well organized monochromatic room is that it has different shades and tints of the same color that you can tweak and work with. For example, the color black has already been an elegant and timeless color, but you can make it look even more stylish by adding gold touches onto it.

It’s Like A Blank Canvas – A good monochromatic room can play with shades of the primary palette. But the best one can still look great even if there are different colors incorporated in it. Using Black on Gold or White on Black, and vice versa minor touches on decors or wallpapers and even on furniture can make the entire monochromatic room look even more design forward and elegant.

How You Can Make Your Small Bedroom Look Bigger

Comments Off on How You Can Make Your Small Bedroom Look Bigger Bedroom

Having a small bedroom sucks for so many reasons. Aside from it making you feel more caged than relaxed, it also minimizes the amount of movements you can do and personal things you can put in it.  Decorating a small bedroom is also more difficult due to the fact that there are limited options when it comes to where you’ll put your stuff and if you have an extra space to use in the first place. Although living in one is not conventional and can be uncomfortable, there are still a lot of things you can do in order to make it seem bigger than it actually is. With that being said, yours truly listed some of the options you can apply in order to make your small bedroom look more spacious.

Paint your walls and floor with a light color – although having a dark blue or black paint can make your room seem cozy and intimate, it also forms an impression that makes the space even smaller than it already is. Paint your walls with lighter colors that can reflect light and make the area look even wider. Another trick is to paint your ceiling with the same color as your walls. That way, it will be more difficult to tell where the wall ends and the ceiling starts, forming an effective optic illusion that will make your room look larger.

Use Built-In Book Shelves – This is one great trick to save up on space. Built-in book shelves are great not only because you’ll be able to properly organize your books and some decorations you can also place them in a near-ceiling position, making your bedroom area seem taller.

Stack Up On Mirrors – Mirrors are the perfect tool when it comes to forming space illusions. If you have an extra blank wall or a wide closet door, add some mirrors in them and you’ll see the magic unfold.

Go Stripes – stripes are known to make things look wider. What you can do here is to paint your walls with black stripes to make them seem longer or striped carpets to make your floor look wider.

Keep Your Stuff Minimal – Probably the simplest one. In order to get the most out of your small bedroom, it’s important to keep the unimportant stuff outside in order for you to have more space.

Now is the time for us to relax and take things slowly without inviting procrastination in the picture.  And we can start that by redecorating the first area of the house that we’ll see as soon as we open our eyes, the bedroom. Having warm tones such as orange, red, mustard and beige in your bedroom will give you the cozy feeling of fall without getting the lazy vibe that comes with it. And with that being said, here are some of the things you can try in order to give your bedroom a fall atmosphere.

Give Your Walls and Floors A New Look – You can start your redecorating by giving your walls and floor a new look. Go for earthly tones such as orange, red and brown. Wooden floors are great because they already remind you of the new season. But if you have carpeted flooring, make sure its color matches the rest of the room or else it will look out of place.

Use Autumn Inspired Wallpapers – Well, if you’re not into painting walls, another thing you can do is to change your current wallpapers and trade it with fall themed ones. Printed orange leaves, woods and orange striped wallpapers are surefire hits this season.

Change Your Bed’s Color Scheme – One good way to give your room a fall atmosphere is to use bed sheets, spreads and pillow cases with warm hues such as orange, red orange and even brown.

Choose Your Decors – Of course, no bedroom redecoration will be complete without having to put on ornaments that will compliment the whole look. And since its fall, you might want to choose decorations that represent the season. Orange glittery balls, plastic maple leaves, pumpkin patch toys and orange or red garlands will surely look great in the room.  You can also use fall fragrances and scents that will complete your room makeover.

If you are, here are some of the things you can do in order to achieve that.

Pick Your Color Scheme – Having a hipster / Soft grunge inspired bedroom starts with forming your color palette. The best hipster style room doesn’t include all colors in the rainbow. A white-blue-black palette is the most recommended one since it’s the simplest and easiest when it comes to incorporating them with background decors and lighting.

Vinyl Wall – You’ve pretty much seen a lot of this on sites like Pinterest and Tumblr. Just use your old, broken, blank or unused vinyl and glue them on your wall. You can also use their covers which is a good way to give any room visitor a glimpse of your music taste.

Picture Walls – Whether it’s a soft grunge or hipster inspired room, picture walls (especially Polaroid pictures) are a MUST. You can glue them directly on the wall or even connect them to strings before hanging them up.

Glow In The Dark Add On – Glow in the dark decors is also great for anyone who wants to have that dreamy sort of room. You know those sticky star shaped ones? The type where you just rip the plastic cover on its back and place it on your wall or ceiling? That’s the best.

Bedroom Decor For the Guest Bedroom

Comments Off on Bedroom Decor For the Guest Bedroom Bedroom

If you have company over for the night, and you have a big enough home featuring a guest bedroom, then you want that room to scream hospitality. It’s a room that needs to be universal and unisex, it needs to appeal to just about everyone. Of course priority one here should go to comfort. You will want at least a queen size mattress and make sure it’s comfortable. Not too hard, not too soft, but just as Goldie Locks would want it to be, just right. Here are a few other things to consider:

Bathroom:

Not every guest bedroom will have its own bathroom, although this is ideal if possible. If you happen to have the money and space then be sure to have plenty of guest robes and towels on hand. along with specialized his/hers toiletries. I realize this may sound an awful lot like a hotel but that’s kind of the point.

Bedding:

This is just as important as the mattress. Obviously the bedding should always be fresh, clean, and smelling like roses. Please be sure to have an extremely comfy comforter as well.

A Touch of Class:

Having a nice fruit basket displayed adds elegance to the room. Some chilled bottled waters or other refreshments always a nice add on. A small but tasteful bar in the corner can also be well received, as your guest may want to indulge in a night cap while reading before turning out the lights.
