There are so many new ways to use wallpaper in your bedroom. No longer constrained to four matching walls and staid prints, the latest wallpaper designs offer so much more – and are no longer just for your walls! If you’re looking for striking bedroom ideas, wallpaper design can be the winning ingredient.
We love this soft and airy look for an elegant guest room, female bedroom, beach house, or boutique hotel. A powdery minty blue and a clean basic white keeps this room looking fresh, simple, and put together. Sticking to one main colour and a complimenting basic prevents the risk of having too much going on with the patterned wall.
Okay so we said we wouldn’t talk about your grandma’s style, but the grandma style can actually work well in a modern context when done right. Here we’re embracing a traditional floral pattern and contrasting that with a crisp white, beachy whicker baskets, and chestnut wood. Picking one colour from your pattern like this Victorian navy blue ties everything together as well.
Bring the outdoors inside with a modern but natural interior design. We love this black and white birch forested wallpaper combined with a real wooden bed frame and side table. Take the weathered outdoor look even further with a luxurious fur throw, then add a touch of contemporary with a modern lamp for example.
If colour isn’t your thing but you still want to create some visual interest, a patterned wallpaper that matches everything is a great idea. This gorgeous creamy gold room feels like a beautiful vintage French apartment and we love how the feminine pillows and wall pattern is offset by the rustic cast iron radiator. A classic vanity is the perfect finishing touch for this look.
Bring the exciting world of fashion into your interior design with a stylish colourful printed wallpaper like what’s been done here in this upscale New York bedroom. The bright colours of this paper avoids being too overpowering with the small size shaping of the pattern and keeping it only on one wall maintains a bold but clean balance.
Another take on metallic wallpaper; this elegant wallpaper adds another layer of life to an already lively bedroom. What’s fun about metallics is that the natural light will play off the pattern at different times of the day, revealing intricacies and details of its floral and feathered print. Also because the wallpaper print is quite gentle, it’s totally okay to introduce other patterns like what’s happening here with the accent pillows and bed skirt.
This modern masculine bedroom uses a patterned wallpaper as the punctuation point of decor and eliminates the need for an over complicating bed headboard at all. Notice the bed cover matches the main colour of the wallpaper as well.
Take a vacation everyday with a bedroom inspired by an ocean breezy room from the coasts of Spain. We are obsessed with this bold red poppy patterned wallpaper and open French doors. A rich chocolate brown, simple white, and sexy red can work well together, especially when the setting sun hits it through your windows.
This bedroom is already interesting enough with angled ceilings and open skylights, but an unexpected pop of colour from the psychedelic hydrangea patterned wallpaper in the corner makes this bedroom the definition of cool.
Skip the patterns and colours–don’t forget to play with wall texture options too. We’re loving this modern grey fabric texture on the walls of this bedroom. Because the texture is already intriguing, you don’t need much colour to make much of a statement.
