The spirit of this style is all about comfort eco-conscious décor choices and a blend of vintage and antique finds with modern touches. With many different variants and an ample room to showcase both your creativity and DIY projects this is a style that lets you display your personality while transforming the bedroom into a calming retreat.
If you believe that green does not work in a trendy and minimal contemporary bedroom then think again! A green accent wall is easy to shape and it brings that much needed warmth to an otherwise cool and mundane interior.
Obviously the choice of the bed is also determined by the size of the room and the décor around it as you do not want to put an excessively large and indulgent bed in a small space.
Plush bedding is the next step forward as this is a style that encourages cozy comfort. A safe way to start is by first choosing the bed and then working around it by bringing in matching side tables lighting fixtures and accessories.
If you’re lucky enough to have really high ceilings you can take your bookshelf headboard all the way up to the top like this example from a New York apartment featured on Home Adore. You gotta love the library ladder added to this one!
Rejecting ornamentation and overembellishment contemporary is then used in the narrowest sense making reference to design and architecture that refrains from unnecessary decoration and adornment. As such contemporary is aligned with the parameters of modern but appears topical and may form part of a fad or trend.
Painting the ceiling in green can be a fun alternative and by leaving the walls white you will still have a neutral and versatile backdrop that will beautifully showcase wall art and sculptural décor additions.
Got a twin bed? No problem — bookshelf headboards are great for kids’ rooms student dorm rooms and even guest rooms! Just grab a more narrow bookshelf that makes a better fit for a smaller bed like these two examples from Small Rooms on Tumblr and Susanna Carter on Pinterest.
