We spend a lot of time in our bedrooms, therefore they can be notoriously difficult to decorate – no one wants to be stuck waking up in a room they don’t like. There is one trend that has seemed to be going around lately and that is the theme of black and white bedrooms. Now I know that some of you might be thinking that black in a bedroom is crazy, but once you see it with all the black décor, black wallpaper, and with the perfect balance of white, you will see why it has become such a huge trend. Below we’ll go over a few different ways you can pull off this dreamy bedroom look:
The first way you can do this is by creating a feature wall with some shimmering, shiny black wallpaper. This is a wall that will definitely make a statement yet look elegant and luxurious at the same time. When you are doing a black feature wall like this you definitely want to keep the rest of the walls white so you don’t close up the room. A great way to tie everything together is to put up a great black chandelier and some nice black and white bed linens.
Don’t worry if you are someone who is only leasing, renting, or doesn’t want to change the walls. If you have all white walls you can still pull this theme off. Try sticking to black furniture like a bed or set of drawers, whatever you like. The great thing about this is that it is not too harsh on the eyes for those of you who like a more neutral look. If you want to make a little bit of a statement, try putting in a splash of colour with a painting or even a throw pillow, to really draw the eye.
If you don’t like the modern or minimal look there are still options for you. Stick to classic white walls again, but this time, make the black and white theme a little more prominent and add some patterns. Patterns are a great way to really break up that monotone look, you can easily do this by adding lamps with small touches of black, black and white patterned bed linens against a black headboard, also, try mixing patterns up to make things really pop. If you’re going for that real vintage vibe then you should also consider adding some black vintage trunks to match.
If you don’t want to add black wallpaper or just want your walls to remain plain white why not consider adding some chick black and white art with a big black border, this will really draw the eye as the contrast looks quite drastic. Make sure you tie things in with matching bedside tables and black lamps next to a black bed frame. This will really give the bedroom a more formal feel which is perfect for adults or the guest room. Just make sure you brighten things up with some white linens and try to choose something minimal that looks crisp and clean.
