Your bedroom should meet your personality and interests, a cool and contemporary style can transform your bedroom into a stylish haven that will make you feel relaxed and happy. Below we have added some inspiration on how to create a cool and contemporary look and feel in your bedroom.
A cool and contemporary style can be created using a simple neutral colour palette, mocha, light browns, stone, creams and light grey are some of the colours that are recommended for creating your desired look. Neutral tones have a warm and inviting feel that soften the look of your room. Adding a light grey tone or pastel blue effect will project a feeling of serenity and calm in the room.
Placing the right furniture in your room will contribute to creating the perfect contemporary look. If your walls are cream and your accessorising in mocha browns you will be able to use a darker wood for your furniture. If your walls are light browns, mocha, light grey or pastel blues then we would recommend cream or white furniture.
Your bed is the most important piece of furniture in your bedroom; it provides comfort but also sets the ambience and style in your room. To create your cool contemporary look we would recommend a bed with a tall headboard as this will give a beautiful grand opulent look. Material beds are great for blending into any scenario; they come in all different colours and materials making them the ideal choice when creating your contemporary look.
Should my other furniture match?
Your should try to aim to have the bedside table, chest of drawers and wardrobe matching from the same range as this will look more effective and will look great in your contemporary style bedroom. Your bedroom furniture can be a light or dark wooden finish depending on the décor in your room.
Placing a feature chair in your bedroom can contribute to styling your perfect contemporary bedroom. A feature chair can also be used for a quiet comfortable reading corner or a place to stack your cushions off the bed.
Soft furnishings provide the finishing homely touches to the room. Keeping your accessories neutral will complement the room and furniture.
The cool contemporary look can be created through your bed linen by choosing white or cream duvets with mocha or light grey throws or bedspreads on top. Placing decorative cushions on top of the bed in mocha or light grey tones will provide a beautiful finishing touch.
Is Lighting Important?
Lighting can set the mood and give a completely different look to the room. Bedside table lamps provide a decorative feel and should be kept to a slim intricate design. Ceiling lights look great hung low as it gives a more personal, warm feel that will complete the contemporary style.
Rugs look great in bedrooms and can make a room feel warm. Rugs should be placed under the bed with enough carpet showing so you can put your feet on first thing in the morning. Contemporary style rugs should be plain with soft brown or cream tones. Plain rugs do not have to be boring, purchasing a fluffy style rug is very popular in modern bedrooms and living rooms now a days.
