The most striking thing about this bedroom is the expert mix of pattern and colour. I'm always intimidated by mixing patterns but there are a few standard rules I've learned to make it easier: vary the scale of patterns, pick two or three colours and repeat them throughout. I'd start with a modern rug with a simple and open pattern, like this one from RugsUSA. Its 50% off right now so really an inexpensive way to add some bold pattern.
Then layer in other patterns and textures, picking up on the colours and shapes in the rug:
- For the windows, curtains made in this small scale pattern fabric would be fun
- A classic upholstered headboard in a light solid cream provides a place for your eye to rest. This one's a great price at less than $200.
- The inspiration photo shows a patterned throw over a neutral quilt. You can save a few dollars by instead using solid white sheets and then have a patterned duvet cover which you fold at the end of the bed. This one has a slightly organic and random feel which works nicely the more rigid geometric patterns.
- I love the look of mirrors over beds, and especially round mirrors over angular headboards. This one is curvy and feminine and the warm metal tones are similar to the chandelier
- instead of two stools, get the same look less expensively by using a single bench. The velvet and luxe details like nailhead trim and upholstered legs really help to make the room feel glamorous
A room can feel a little boring though when its all too monochromatic or similar so I'd introduce a shot of colour. An original painting like this one over a side table would be just enough to keep things interesting.
Are you refreshing your interiors for spring? This has me itching to introduce a bit of coral into my bedroom.
