My tried and true design advice for a master bedroom is to keep most pieces light and airy in color. Add just a few elements with bold contrast. Master bedrooms should be a relaxing retreat. Too much color or contrast can make the room feel busy.
The mood board above gives an example of how you can achieve the perfect balance in your own space. The charcoal headboard, navy throw pillows add just enough subtle contrast. The kidney pillow with a bold print layered on top adds a pop of interest. And, the artwork acts as the signature piece to tie everything together. This design harmonizes the mix of warm and cool colors. Adding just a few darker elements for contrast helps to balance the room without making it feel dark.
Always keep things feeling cozy and inviting by adding lots of texture. Having too much solid color without enough texture can make a room feel boring and sterile. The duvet, rug, navy pillows, brass lamps, and linen curtains each bring a different subtle texture that makes the space feel luxurious.
The real secret to making sure your room has a classic feel that you will love for years is to bring in the pops of color and prints with your accessories. By keeping the main pieces neutral you can always freshen things up with a few easy and inexpensive swaps that will give the room a completely new look.
Finishing touches can make all the difference, try swapping your pillows and artwork out seasonally and you’ll find yourself falling in love with your room all over again!
