Master Bedroom Decorating Ideas

This article will try and serve as a source of information, it will not be a step by step guide but a series of tips,images and videos which should hopefully spark that creative side of you and help you create an inspiring mater bedroom, decorated to your personal taste.

The type of bedroom you chose is often reflective of the person or people that you are, many opt to make a romantic getaway to give couples a place to escape the hectic day to day life of work and family. Others chose modern crisp lines with stunning and striking features.

Whatever is your cuppa tea be sure to show it in decorating your master bedroom and let it be an extension of you. Me personally I like a room where i can relax and unwind so I like soft calming colours.

Master bedroom Colours

In the first of the mater bedroom decorating ideas we are going to discuss colours. As we have already mentioned your master bedroom should be an extension of you, it should demonstrate your innermost desires and for many of us that is relaxation and rejuvenation.

This starts with your colour choice, people are looking to make life more simplified and this is currently being shown in the colour choices people are making in their bedrooms and in fact throughout the rest of their home. Greens and browns matching outdoor spaces are very popular as you can see in the top image to your right.

Pink can also be a great colour if used right it can ooze class and sophistication and make a room feel very warm and inviting, don't be afraid to use bold pinks to emphasise the colour. Take a look at Betsy Johnson's bedroom of the apartment she recently put up for sale in the second picture to the right.

If you are looking to add that little bit of luxury to your bedroom then why not try adding small touches of gold to your colour scheme, if used will it can add a real touch of class, think about accentuating your soft furnishings such as your bed and curtains and framing square objects such as mirrors. The third image down gives a good example of how gold can be well used in your master bedroom.

Violet the colour of lavender can be used to good effect, it's not my favourite but is used by many to very good effect, the last image to the right shows a very good example. It looks very soothing and relaxing and the metallic lustre around the room accompanies the darkness of the colour very well.

If like me you like your master bedroom to be a little paradise for you and your partner to help you escape the daily chores of life, then how can you make it perfect. Well i think the first thing is think femininity, guys sorry to say but black is not a sexy colour. This is especially true with the soft furnishings, bedding chairs etc, look for soft feminine colours like those in the top image to the right.

Lighting is vital in a bedroom and being able to adjust the lighting level is important. You can use candles as the natural glow and warmth of lots of naked flames can make a room feel very warm and cosy, also consider installing a dimmer switch to help you create the right mood for your bedroom.

A final tip to help make your bedroom romantic, unique and personal is to use wall stencilling, maybe stencil out the vows you said to one another on your wedding day, or your favourite poems or quotes from films and books, using contrasting colours to the walls and the personalised message these can have a very powerful effect on the room. Take a look at the video below for ideas.
