Master Bedroom Ideas brings you 10 tips to décor a modern master bedroom. Your bedroom is an intimate space, so the design should be the truest reflection of your interior design style.
Mix modern and contemporary
: modern refers to a particular style; contemporary, on the other hand, simply refers to those styles in vogue at that time, and so “contemporary” is a fluid, ever-changing concept. Because modern décor
is currently extremely popular, it falls under the contemporary umbrella, adding to the confusion.
Traditionally, the modern color scheme
is neutral: various shades of brown, cream, tan, black, gray, and white predominate. Here you can see the mix of purple and green
with the cream. As the style matured, neutrals remained the primary palette, but the use of bright accent colors became more common.
Minimalism is similar to modern design
in that it emphasizes a clean look without a lot of adornment. Midcentury modern furniture
fits well into this “less is more” decorating philosophy. This grey and white minimalist bedroom
is proof that you don’t need a lot of stuff to make a modern master bedroom.
The modernism movement embraced the concept “Form follows function” meaning that the most important aspect of a piece of furniture is its intended use, rather than its appearance. This doesn’t mean the modern style
is ugly. Clean lines on furnishings and plenty of open space in the master bedroom
are essential components of this look.
Scandinavian modern embraces a similar clean, streamlined, and functional look but tends to use white far more than the other neutrals, particularly on the floors and walls. You can mix Scandinavian modern with other styles.
For the most part, surfaces in a modern master bedroom are smooth and often shiny. Polished floors, lacquered or highly polished furniture, accents of metal and glass all add to the clean, modern vibe.
A modern master bedroom should look cozy and simple, sophisticated, and elegant. Furnish your bedroom with only what you need. A modern bed, a nightstand or two, a dresser, and a chair are necessities. Anything else is a clutter.
Bedroom furniture should fit the room it lives in. Don’t choose a heavy, large bed and dresser for a small bedroom. If the ceiling is high, a tall headboard will help to visibly bring it down to size. If your bedroom is large, choose furniture that fits it, too. Add a chair and ottoman or place a piece of luxury furniture at the end of the bed.
The key to this luxury bedroom is to layer an intricate pattern while keeping the backdrop understated. Spots, stripes, ikat prints and colour block all work together beautifully when united by a harmonious palette.
Give yourself a special gift with a quiet place to sit and read. Create a relaxed reading or lounging area with a comfortable chair and footstool at the end of your bed.
