There’s no right or wrong way to decorating a bedroom or bathroom. Some people might like darker, cooler tones and modern styles, while others prefer vibrant, warm tone and bohemian styles. Whatever colors or styles you prefer, here are some tips to help you combine them into a cohesive look for your master suite.
When choosing color tones or a color scheme, try to remember the 30-60-10 rule where 60% of the bedroom or bathroom is the main color, 30% is the complimentary color, and 10% is the accent color. Once the colors are chosen, try to decorate vertical from lights to dark where the darker colors are found on the floor and lower regions, the medium tones on the walls, and lighter colors for the ceiling and upper regions. This will help draw the eyes up and replicate how colors work in the natural world.
Another thing to keep in mind is the dramatic effect of natural lighting. Especially in bedrooms, the use of natural light through windows can help make a bedroom look bigger, cheerier and simply brighter. There are a few ways to help bring natural light into a room is using neutral, light colored sheer panels, valances or upholstered cornices.
When you’re ready to start decorating, don’t be afraid to mix patterns, no matter the style or theme that you’ve chosen. Mixing pillow patterns with rugs, curtains, and a custom upholstered headboard can really tie together your color scheme and create a unique feel. When mixing patterns, make sure to stick to the color palette or scheme chosen and don’t forget to leave “white space” by adding a neutral color or two.
