A friend of mine recently enlisted my help to redecorate her bedroom. She currently has a plain bedroom that she'd like to add some style to, but doesn't have tons of time to do a big renovation and can't break the bank redesigning the room. The furniture has to stay but the decor, fabrics, bedding, and wall color can all be changed. And to throw one more challenge into the mix, she's not sure what type of look to go for.
The room has beautiful molding so she considered playing up the formality and going for a luxe french look. Or she considered going with a green scheme by using a green duvet cover she already has and really likes. Another option is to go for a tropical themed bedroom. The master bath is decorated in Hawaiian theme which she really loves and brightens her day. Lot's of possibilities! To help her with her decorating conundrum, I put together a few style boards to design each of these bedroom looks for her.
First up, a fresh modern green bedroom. Since she loves the color green, I picked lively green bedding with a fun modern print. I chose a light brown for the walls because it compliments the bright green bedding well and adds some contrast against the light bedroom furniture. To play up the fresh and modern look some more, I added white accents like the crisp white curtains and white picture frames over the bed. In the frames, she can add some colorful nature prints or black and white photos (she already has lots of beautiful wedding photos). Finally, I suggest keeping the current lamps but adding green shades to them to complete the green look. Fun, fresh, modern!
The next look is quite the opposite. I put together a luxurious romantic French inspired bedroom. The main focus of this room are the rich fabrics. I suggest draping the entire wall behind the bed with several panels of thick off-white curtains. This adds drama to the room and gives it an upscale, romantic feel. I also chose sophisticated silver bedding for the room which looks very opulent. A candle wall sconce adds even more romance to the bedroom. Since so much light fabric is being used in the bedroom, I paired it with a deep plum color for the remaining walls. Romantic, luxurious, sophisticated!
