White idyll for a bedroom
It's not a secret for anyone that the white color is soothing to the human psyche. In a bright room we find it easier to relax and relax – the city's furious rhythm recedes, thoughts no longer get mixed up, breathing becomes calm and rhythmic, the muscles of the whole body relax. White color is able not only to calm our psyche, but also to inspire a sense of security, pacification, ease and freedom.
But this does not mean that an absolutely white room is the best option for rest and sleep. To avoid association with a sterile chamber or operating room, you need to include other shades, accent spots or a prominent decor. Even if it is a light wood for flooring or pastel colors, bed textiles or window decorations – this will be enough to preserve a fresh and easy bedroom furnishing.
And if you plan to use contrasting colorful shades for furnishings, decor or textiles, then complete with light walls, they will create a fairly dynamic and original bedroom design.
On a light background, any decorative elements stand out. White tone is combined with any shades and it is not necessary to puzzle over color solutions. For many homeowners, these prospects can be decisive factors in choosing a color palette for the bedroom.
Your favorite artwork will get the best possible options for decorating the space around it – a snow-white wall. Thus, the picture can become the focal center of the bedroom, switching attention from the central piece of furniture – beds.
Another important aspect of the advantage of using white in the design of vertical surfaces is visual expansion of space. If your bedroom is very modest, if its shape is far from symmetry or the sleeping room is located in the attic or attic – white shades will help to smooth out all the geometric "irregularities", architecture features.
Another way to decorate the bedroom, in which the white color of the walls will be the most suitable option – a minimalist style. If you are close to the style, based on such concepts as space, freedom, practicality, convenience, cleanliness and freshness – a snow-white palette will be of help to you.
A white room with a minimum of furnishing and decoration is not an option for everyone. But many homeowners seek precisely this ascetic atmosphere after a difficult day's work. Tranquility and freshness after a noisy city filled with bright colors is what is needed for relaxation and a deep, deep sleep.
If you select one of the walls (usually at the head of the bed) in the bedroom with snow-white surfaces, covering it with accent tone, you can get an interesting interior of the sleeping room. Your bedroom will not lose its freshness and lightness, but the color variety will be acquired, which will allocate the main room furnishings – a bed.
For many homeowners, the classic style, embodied in a snow-white color palette, is considered to be the perfection of the bedroom. No matter what new stylistic trends appear, no matter how ultra-modern design solutions were not invented for the design of private rooms, and the classic is timeless and fashion. It is difficult to imagine all the richness of stucco on the ceiling and the decor of the walls in any other color except white.
Masonry in the bedroom – not only for the style of the loft
The widest distribution was the design of the whitewashed brickwork, which is located at the head of the bed. Thus, the accent wall is allocated not so much through color (although this option is not excluded), but by means of an unusual texture. There is something brutal in the presence of brickwork in the private space of the room for sleeping and resting.
Brick masonry, painted in white, it will be appropriate to look in the ultramodern interior of the bedroom. The room in which items of furniture and decor of various stylistic directions are collected, needs a light background of a spacious room.
Well, for the loft style in the bedroom, all canons and rules literally stand for the use of brickwork when decorating walls. It is believed that the original masonry of industrial premises was simply painted to save on plaster or any other lining surfaces. At present, designers specially imitate brick or lay out really brick walls to saturate the interior with industrialism and sustain the space in the stylistic direction.
Your bedroom does not need to be designed in an industrial style, so that the brickwork looks harmonious and appropriate. You can use a brick wall (unpainted, but covered with special protective varnishes) as an accent. If you like to see a beautiful brick color, its unusual texture, waking up in the morning, then draw the accent wall not at the head of the bed (as it usually happens), but opposite it.
There is one more similar to the brickwork way to create an original space behind the head of the bed – to simulate concrete or foam blocks. In this case, you need to be prepared for the fact that the interior will have a clearly pronounced brutal shade. It can be softened by art works in pastel colors or interesting decor items, using mirrors or bright textiles.
Accent wall in the room for sleeping – a lot of design options
Highlighting the accent wall is a design technique that has proved itself in rooms with different applications. Of course, the bedroom did not stay aside. For many years, designers around the world have been using this simple but effective move to create interesting and individual interiors.
To create an accent wall there are many ways – from a simple combination of wallpaper of various shades or prints, to upholstery walls with wood, plastic, steel sheets, textiles or leather.
One of the easiest ways to select a wall at the head of your bed is to cover with wallpaper with a picture. In this case, the other surfaces are performed in a one-ton version. Often used for decorating the wallpaper in stripes. If you want to visually expand the rooms, then use a horizontal strip, if you need to "raise" the ceiling – then the vertical bars will help you in this.
Even a small digression from the general color palette, or the use of the same shade of wallpaper as the wallpaper in the entire room, will allow you to emphasize the wall near which the bed is located.
The accent wall with bright geometric patterns is an option for active and active natures. On the one hand – your bedroom is quite original and presentable, there are bright colors in its decoration. On the other – nothing is annoying when you are preparing for bed – after all, a bright element of the decor of the room is at the head of the bed.
The decoration of the accent wall with the help of textiles is the last trend in the design circles. By laying a soft material between the wall and textile, you will not only create an original interior element, but you can also choose a bed without a headboard at all, because you have a nice, comfortable and soft wall. It will be logical to repeat the coloring of textiles in other elements of the interior – as an upholstery of an armchair or ataman standing at the foot of the bed, covers for pillows or rollers.
The original way to decorate the accent wall can be done with the help of a relief tile – ceramic or its plastic counterpart. The effect of such coverage, which is present in a personal room, is stunning. Such a design technique can be used, both for bedrooms located in country houses, and within the city apartments.
For lovers of eco-materials and integration into the modern style of elements of country stylistics, you can suggest a variant with a wooden accent wall. Depending on the main color of your room, you can choose a shade of light or dark wood. Against this background, even simple decor elements or conventional wall lights will look special.
Not always the accent is the wall at the head of the bed. If you really like the color or pattern of wallpaper, why not cover them with a wall that you will see immediately after awakening? Perhaps this is what will help you wake up with a good mood and get a positive tone for the whole working day.
Photo printing on wallpaper has not sunk into oblivion, but has been transformed into modern technologies and possibilities. If earlier our compatriots were pasting the walls of the bedrooms with wallpaper with a picture of a birch grove or a waterfall, at present the choice of character and manner of the photo-printing does not know the boundaries. You can place on the walls of the bedroom any image – from a copy of the picture of Salvador Dali to enlarged portraits of your children.
For larger rooms and high ceilings, you can use really dark shades to decorate the accent wall. On such a background, designer lamps or light objects of decor will look great.
Wallpaper with a picture for a bedroom – a classic of the genre
For those who do not want to deviate from the tradition of wallpapering the bedroom walls with wallpaper with a pattern or ornament, manufacturers of modern finishing materials are ready to offer a wide range of options.

As they say – "any whims for your money." At any most demanding taste and size of the purse these days you can find an option that will suit you entirely.
There is one unwritten rule when using wallpaper with a print – they are best suited for monochrome curtains and curtains for the decoration of window openings. Especially it concerns rooms in which all walls are pasted with wallpaper with a large pattern.
Graphics black and white wallpaper with a floral or animalistic pattern will give the interior of the bedroom. As a result, you get an interesting and unusual design, but with the preservation of the traditional approach to the design of a room for sleep.
Decorative elements for bedroom walls
Obviously, after finishing the surfaces of walls and installing furniture, you will want to decorate the resulting space. Painted walls or covered with monophonic wallpaper and ask for the presence of paintings, mirrors, family photos within, and sometimes simply frames as a decorative element.
In decorating the walls of the bedroom, you can use a variety of options – most importantly, do not go too far with variegated and the number of items.
Against the background of non-variegated wallpaper with a neutral color palette, bright decor will look no less advantageous. Creative natures with an active temperament can choose more colorful combinations.
For some homeowners, practicality is always at the forefront and even the decor for the walls must perform certain functions. In this case, you can use open shelves to arrange all sorts of trifles, which is important to have at hand before going to bed or on waking. If you decorate the light shelves with lighting, you can create diffuse lighting for the evening, soothing and relaxing.
Decor on the walls does not have to be bright and active. If the bedroom is decorated in soft, pastel colors and you would like to maintain an atmosphere of relaxation and tranquility, you can use large decorative elements, but calm colors, without glitz and dark spots in the decoration.
