Ideas for new bedroom

Question Posted Saturday August 1 2009, 6:35 am

I am moving house and I need ideas for decorating my new bedroom!

I am open to suggestions. I have nooo idea about what colours etc to do, the only thing I know is that I'm having a double bed, big wardrobe, timber floors and I am getting a big photo frame to hang on my wall with black and white photos of my family, friends and boyfriend.

Does anyone have any amazing ideas?

if you like warm colors, i suggest a few of these colors for the walls:
-dark red
-burnt orange
-dark beige
itd look good with timber floors and itll make your room super cozy. you can sponge the walls too by paintin it one color then usin the sponge with a different color. i did it to my bedroom back in the day and it was reallly pretty. you can also have gold accents, which look super good with these colors.

if you like cool colors, heres some more for the walls:
it can make it look under the sea themed or star themed. itll make your room feel breezy and open. silver goes great with these colors.

personally i like canapies a lot. or just a kind of drape for a headboard. it gives the room a dreamy look. same with artwork, and can really give the room an abstract touch to it.

good luck hun ! :)

I think beige would make a good background for the black and white photos. Adding one brightly coloured item or two to contrast with all the black and white would be nice too.

However, if you don't like that, pick colour(s) that you like.

Keep in mind that since it's your bedroom, pale and neutral colours would be the most appropriate for a restful atmosphere. Also, from a practical perspective, walls should not be too dark, especially if you intend to read in the room.

As for things in your room, I would recommend keeping it simple, as it will be easier to maintain.

It is best to have the bed and other large furniture on the sides of the room, as that will be the most efficient use of floor space.

Make sure you have enough wardrobe space for all your clothes and sufficient storage for anything else that you might have.

You really need to look at a color pallet. What's your favorite color?

If you like blue or red, I'd do something with those colors. You can stripe your wall. If you like the idea of doing blue, you can take a plastic bag and wrap it around your hand and dip it in the paint & press it against the wall. It gives the wall a sky looking effect. My parents did this in our living room at my old house & it was really pretty. :)
