You have decided to enter the era of time with a room that is not that of your grandmother. Here are some tips so that we can now qualify your bedroom as “modern.”
What colors to choose for a modern bedroom decor?
Goodbye beige wallpaper with small pink flowers and its leaf frieze, you are going to repaint. If your furniture is rather dark, you will opt for a light color: blue conducive to relaxation, for example. If your furniture is a light shade, you can choose a dark color, such as chocolate or plum, which will enhance the intimate side of your sleeping space. Plan a color reminder with a rug, throw, or cushions in the same colors to confirm your choice. As for the bed linen, you will be modern if you opt for white or black, gray, pastel colors or very dark, but solid. Play on the material effect to create the pattern (quilted, wadded, woolly).
What furniture to choose for modern bedroom decor?
Do we recognize the sleeper at the foot of the bed? In any case, the headboard says a lot about the modernity of the furniture! Without sacrificing comfort, you will find particularly original headboards from the designers. You can also change your bed to a king-size bed or around the bed; that is modern! But this is not the only piece of furniture in your bedroom: an ultra-modern armchair in the corner of the room, all in transparent plexiglass, metal or leather, could just as easily give a boost to a slightly classic bedroom. But it can be a whole other room, like a dressing table, a chest of drawers, or even a fireplace. The creation of a dressing room, with sliding doors and mirrors, instead of a Norman wardrobe, also seems an essential step towards modernism.
What lighting to favor for modern bedroom decoration?
In the same way that it is necessary to create a unity of colors and a unity in the furniture (even more if the room is small), it is advisable to opt for lighting, which reinforces this feeling of the whole. That the sconces, the ceiling suspension, and the lamps arranged here and there are all of the same invoice (even if they are not the same intensities of the bulb inside) seems the best way to achieve this. And to give an impression of modernity to the whole, we will avoid fabric, and we will privilege the metal for the lights. In a modern bedroom, it is advisable to let in as much natural light as possible. The ideal would be to have a large bay window that overlooks the garden or the beach. In any case, at your window, exit the big velvet curtains. If the light bothers you, opt for white roman blinds and play with the lengths.
Modern bedroom decor: for what reasons to choose?
Few patterns go well with the notion of modernity, which mainly likes white plains and black plains. But the two come together to give a houndstooth that can have its charm on an armchair or a headboard. Geometric patterns will work better than floral patterns, undeniably stripes too. Chinese ideograms, taken in isolation (in a frame, for example), fall entirely into this category, despite their old age.
Modern bedroom decor: don’t neglect the details
Sometimes, it is on little things that everything is played out. You will have difficulty qualifying as a modern room whose switches are made of earthenware and brass. There are now so many shapes, colors and materials to change switches and sockets as you wish, it would be a shame to let this detail escape you. Changing the flowerpot on your green plant, repainting your wooden hangers, removing the carpet, or mounting the television to the wall are all details that can make your bedroom new living space. Fresh cut flowers, an African ebony mask, a large mirror, bed linen in bright colors will perhaps bring you closer to your goal. Maybe now is the time to invest in a canvas from a contemporary artist you’ve loved recently.
