Tips to Decorate Your Bedroom

Created on Posted by Fawn Interiors Studio

The bedroom, despite being your own personal sanctuary, is often the last room that we decorate, and we also don’t spend very much on it. But we’re going to show you that with a few careful choices, decorating your bedroom doesn’t have to cost you the earth or be a big project...and can still be a beautiful space.


Teal painted bedroom in Elle Decor


Teal is a trend colour this winter and for good reason – it’s a warm blue-green so has all the soothing aspects of blue but also the warmth that you need at this time of year; making it a perfect bedroom colour choice. In this bedroom, featured in Elle Décor, they have painted all the walls teal (try Farrow and Ball’s Vardo) and then accessorised with golden and lighter blue accents. And by adding lots of furniture and accessories, in a maximalist style, they have achieved a haven of cosiness and warmth.


Fornasetti Clouds wallpaper from Cole & Son


Wallpaper is a quick and easy way to dramatically change any room, and not least of all the bedroom. This clouds wallpaper (Fornasetti II Nuvolette by Cole & Son) is perfect for a bedroom – soft and billowy and in neutral tones that will send you drifting off to sleep right away. It also adds impact without being too stimulating, which is key for a good night’s sleep. Accessorise with a clean palette of whites and greys, as the designers have done here, to create a calm and peaceful room that you will want to spend all your time in.


Bedroom featured in Architectural Digest


If you have the space (though as we can see here the bedroom is not super-sized), invest in a beautiful four-poster bed. Choosing an antique or antique replica will create a gorgeous focal point in your room and will add real character. This four-poster in black (featured in Architectural Digest) has lovely detailing and tapers off beautifully at the top and doesn’t seem too heavy in the room. The designers have kept the rest of the room very fresh and soothing with white and blue accents, so that it all doesn’t become too over-bearing. And just imagine falling asleep there each night, king or queen of your castle.


Ski chalet on Alpine Guru


Ski chalets are the ultimate cosy environments in winter with their warm woods and roaring fireplaces. But you can recreate this look easily in your bedroom as this image shows. Although this is an actual chalet, all you need is rustic-looking wallpaper, a gorgeous rustic wood panelled headboard (you could make this yourself) and heavy textured bedding in natural colours. They’ve taken it all one step further with the dark sheepskin rug (necessary for keeping toes warm) and the stag heads wall decor. Add black accessories for a luxe finish, et voila, your bedroom is now a cosy winter retreat.

Teal is one of my favourite colours and I absolutely love that ski chalet bedroom! The wooden panelled head board really gives it a cosy and warm feel.

I am in the process of doing my bedroom up so this has been a useful read! It’s an often overlooked room, but I think we should all make an effort to improve our sleeping spaces, seeing as we spend so much time there! Love the ski chalet look :)

What a wonderful idea and very useful tips.Investing in statement furniture is a must. I’ve managed to re-decorate my bedroom last year, however, my build in wardrobe is awaiting a makeover. I love the recent trend of a dreamy bedroom. I think I manage to create this kind of look by using one of my largest meadow painting.

My favourite is that ski chalet style! I visited one last year and oh my gosh, I fell in love. The mixture of wood and simple walls is so timeless!

Considering how much time we spend in our bedrooms and their purpose it’s such a shame that we invest so little in them. This year I really am going to finish the bedroom makeover I started in 2014. It’s long long overdue.

I am going to put it out there so I can start accepting it: this is the year I will wallpaper the wall behind the bed. And I am totally waiting for a day when the husband is away on a trip too :)))))
