Colorful Bedroom Ideas

Below are some colorful bedroom ideas I’ve chosen for those who wish to brighten up their room. I realize not everyone wants a soothing calming space to  sleep in, but also not a bright loud space so I’ve carefully chosen what I would call classy colorful bedrooms that can easily be adapted.

If you are budget conscious then it’s important to choose an adaptable design. Also if you get a little bored with your color scheme you can easily revamp it with simple accessories like a new color cushion cover, pillow cases and bed spread. For example instead of the red here on this black and white background, why not have purple or green for a change. Let your mood enhance your room color.

This room speaks modern yet quite manly, so my guess is it’s a bachelors bedroom. I like the block effect though and the artwork makes it very unique. The geometric touches with solid walls bring the decor together perfectly.

This bedroom appears to have a spa feel to it thanks to the browns and blue hues. The solid mix of colors really works here, I especially love the blue that could accept a hint of bright pink for me in the form of fluffy scatter cushions to jazz it up a bit.

This timeless design has a vintage feel while still being trendy. I think it’s down to the colors, I love the green touches and the wall art with black and white bedding. Hints of classic style with modern touches really works for me in this bedroom.

Romance is in the air for the owner/owners of this romantic red bedroom. It’s rather striking but has soft touches that make it welcoming. The red wall, hint of red on the classic white bedding and wall art ooze sophisticated romance.

I just love this nature inspired bedroom that has surely been created from memories of wonderful outdoor scenery. The white drapes around the bed give this bedroom a touch of regal quality, I imagine the owners of this room like high quality n everything.

I wouldn’t have really chosen such a vivid color for the walls of a bedroom but I actually like it a lot. I think the secret here is that the designer chose the bed and accessories very carefully so the color on the walls wouldn’t overwhelm the rest of the room. A clever design in my opinion by Erinn Valencich.

Dream Bedrooms by Candice Olson

Candice Olson is the mistress of design, so here I wanted to celebrate some of her before and after dream bedrooms. I notice that in all of these fabric makes a statement which is why I particularly enjoyed writing this post and finding the great images. Our Egyptian cotton products wouldn’t look out of place here in any of these rooms….maybe she has already used some!

This dull bedroom is really just a total waste of good space. I love what Candice did here to utilize the area into a stunning bedroom to die for. This room now has a calm aura about it, where you would love to spend the day lounging around.

I love the color scheme here as it’s just timeless. The floor plan is so clever as it now incorporates a comfortable seating area with a desk giving it a luxury hotel room feel about it. Pure class with a hint of regality.

The next room is a very uninspiring man’s bedroom that is in desperate need of a revamp.

Candice chooses to go eco-friendly here by using a low-VOC paint in a lovely mid blue color. All the fabrics are organic and even the carpet is made of recyclable materials. Check out our organic bedding. This room is now very welcoming and perfect for a gent with out being too manly. I love the fact it is also Earth friendly.

The next room believe it or not belongs to extremely busy parents who obviously have not had the time or energy to turn their bedroom into a haven.

Candice must have had a field day here as there is practically no furniture and a great space to work with. She totally transformed it into a proper adult couple’s room offering solace at the end of a busy day. I love the shimmering damask bedding set and the built in storage.

Candice Olson2b

Well not much to say on this room except it reminds me of  a poor studio apartment back in the 1970′s. It actually belongs to a couple in desperate need of Candice’s help.

Candicea

An amazing design here from nothing to a bedroom paradise with warm panels, contemporary furniture and subtle lighting. I could quite happily spend a day or two in here with room service.

The final room has a great quirky brick wall but the plaid bedding is a bit dated and there are no real features here at all for a good size space.

Candice Olson4

Candice turned this gorgeous room into something reminiscent of a Swiss chalet. I love the fire, the old world leather chair and rug. The color scheme exudes warmth, luxury and comfort.

Candice Olson4b

I hope you have been inspired by these refurbished bedrooms. It just goes to show how a dull and boring space can be brought to life with a bit of imagination and expertise. It is worth hiring an expert like Candice especially if you just don’t have the time and energy. Personally my bedroom is my haven so why not treat it like one!

Romantic Bedroom Designs

Your bedroom is your individual space and so much more than just for rest. All bedroom design takes planning but  romantic bedrooms requires a certain amount of attributes. The basics are soft lighting, candles,  a comfortable, inviting bed, plump cushions and somewhere to put that all important bottle of wine.  After all bedrooms are really all about relaxing!

Most importantly you need to look after your body so use  high quality sheet sets like Egyptian cotton, as they are hypoallergenic, super soft and keep you cozy and warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Another must are plump pillows.

Romantic bedrooms 1

Treat your windows with generous silk or velvet drapes. If they are a bit old fashioned for you then go for blinds made from soft material that create a black out when closed. Avoid anything made from hard materials, although black and dark materials are OK. Not all romantic bedrooms need to be frills and spills.

Treat yourselves to a nice big bed if you have the space. Try to keep your room uncluttered so only have in there what is needed. Office equipment and junk do not belong in a bedroom.

My Trick to a Romantic bedroom is to think of your five senses….

Sight – You have to create a haven here, so when you walk into your room you need to instantly relax. So great color combinations are a must. You don’t always have to go for the soft touch as I said before dark colors and splashes of bright can work too.

Smell – The smell of your room is so important, but I wouldn’t go for anything too flowery. Opt for vanilla and musky scented candles, they’ll look nice too.

Touch – Going back to bedding you need to have super soft bedding with fluffy pillows. If it’s the winter time a goose down comforter is a must to keep cozy and warm. Fluffy and sateen scatter cushions would also add a nice touch.

Hear -  For a truly romantic time you need back ground music. There’s so much mobile technology around these days and some really smart compact docking stations so there’s no need to clutter up the room.

Taste. There’s nothing nicer than taking a bottle of wine with nibbles to bed and shutting the world out for a night. Even better if it’s a special occasion champagne.

 For this type of look you could decorate in neutral shades, add a few tone on tone materials and add a touch of mettalic.

There’s lots of choice as you can see for romantic bedrooms, you just need to think of your senses!

The master bedroom is your haven so it’s the one room in your house where you can really go to town when designing your new bedroom. The big secret is choosing colors that compliment textures, patterns and your personal style. You may like energizing colors but don’t really want to wake up to a clash of bright bolds. You must give a lot of thought to the design and colors as this will effect the mood of your room and can effect the proportions dramatically.
