Feminine bedrooms breathe with an atmosphere of sophistication and each one features unique décor. With their eye for detail and a balanced use of different design elements, women manage to design bedrooms that exude effortless beauty and elegant simplicity. However, don’t be misled into thinking that all feminine bedrooms look the same only because they feature similar elements. On the contrary, women’s bedrooms reflect strong personalities of their proud owners.

Bright colour schemes

Lovely combinations of gentle and soft hues and unexpected pops of bold colours elevate the design of women’s bedrooms. Your options when it comes to feminine colour schemes are endless because you can mix and match any and every hue you can think of. Typically, feminine bedrooms feature soft and neutral backdrops that provide plenty of possibilities for experimenting with bold accent details and unique patterns. For a feminine vibe and romantic feel, you can try hues like mint green, light grey, soft pink, pale blue or crisp white. These colours are perfect for creating a unique ambience of tranquillity, serenity and romance worthy of a feminine bedroom. For stylish accent walls or decorative elements, you can use bolder hues, including dark purple, deep coral, dark grey or crimson.

Romantic lighting

Lighting is an essential design element that women use both to emphasise beautiful features of their bedrooms and to add stylish accent details. Among the most popular solutions are simple yet elegant downlights that women use to create a subtle and romantic ambience. Since they can be easily adjusted to give out both bright and gentle light, downlights are a great choice for bedrooms. Moreover, this type of lighting creates an understated look, enabling you to introduce additional fixtures that you can use as accent details. For example, lovely vintage bedside lamps with floral designs can bring romance into your feminine bedroom.

Intricate patterns

Patterns are a great way to add character to your bedroom and with plenty of designs available, you can easily create the wow effect. If you want a bedroom that features a particular style, you can use patterns to portray its mesmerising features. For example, ethnic patterns will bring the oriental beauty of the Moroccan style, while florals can capture the romantic flair of the Bohemian design. Of course, you don’t have to pick a specific style in order to bring patterns into your lovely bedroom. There’s a variety of designs you can choose from, including nature-inspired motifs, geometric shapes and even art-deco patterns. Just keep in mind that feminine bedrooms feature gentle rather than straight lines.

Plush fabrics

Another important feature of feminine bedrooms is cosiness. The best way to create an ambience of comfort and warmth is by adding plush and soft fabrics. For depth and a layered look, you can use several bed covers on top of each other or use several area rugs. Of course, throw pillows are a necessary element for a cosy atmosphere, especially on your comfy bed. In addition, fabrics are a great way to introduce patterns and create a cohesive look in your bedroom. For example, you can use similar patterns for your curtains and bed covers, or match cushions to upholstery fabrics.

Smart storage

With plenty of makeup, piles of clothes and infinite pairs of shoes, storage is a necessity in women’s bedrooms. First and foremost, you need a large wardrobe for all of your stylish clothes. You can maximise the storage space in your closet by introducing additional shelves, baskets and hangers. If your bedroom is small, you should opt for multifunctional furniture with storage compartments that will help you keep your lovely bedroom organised and clean. You can introduce a stylish ottoman with a hidden compartment or choose a bed with drawers at the bottom. A makeup vanity is a great addition to a feminine bedroom. Not only will you have plenty of space for your makeup, but this piece of furniture has a true feminine charm.

Designing a feminine bedroom entails combining different elements and experimenting with patterns, colours and fabrics. Not only will your bedroom have a unique design, but it will also exude elegance and sophistication.

Although the first thing that comes to mind when designing a stylish bedroom with a masculine vibe is simplicity, this decorating task actually requires more effort and skill than you might think. You need to create a balanced look that will be both functional and stylish, while also creating an ambience of comfort and tranquillity.

Choosing the right bed

Not only should your bed ensure that you get a good night’s sleep, but it can also be a stylish statement piece in your bedroom. It’s important that you choose the right mattress that will provide appropriate support for your back. Buying a mattress separate from the frame will provide you with more options when it comes to design and comfort. Since the bed is also the focal point of the room, you should opt for a frame that reflects your personal taste and the general style of the room. You can go with a bold design, conspicuous hues and stylish materials, such as metal or rich wood. Since your bed will bring both comfort and style to your room, you shouldn’t hesitate to invest a bit more to ensure the best quality.

Setting the mood with lighting

Lighting is an important element of interior design, and it can greatly influence the general atmosphere of the room. Subtlety is the best policy when it comes to lighting. Of course, that doesn’t mean that you can’t use lighting fixtures as stylish details. Dimmers are always a trendy and functional solution because you can adjust the light depending on your needs. You can have brighter light when reading, and then reduce the intensity when you want to create a relaxing or intimate atmosphere. Downlights are another great choice because you can experiment with their position and spread them across the ceiling.

Introducing mirrors

If you have a small bedroom, adding mirrors will help you create an illusion of spaciousness and openness. However, there’s no reason why you can’t use mirrors as stylish accessories at the same time. You can experiment with the size and shape, and use intricately designed frames to emphasise the style of your bedroom. When it comes to placing the mirrors, there are several options. If you don’t have much space, you can always place them on the closet doors. According to feng shui principles, you can bring calmness into your room by placing a mirror opposite the window. Since a mirror directly facing your bed isn’t actually advisable, you can opt for a subtler solution – place it either on the side or in the corner of your room slightly facing your bed.

Trendy colour scheme

Long past are the days when only blue was considered to be the colour for boys. The colour scheme for your bedroom can include a variety of hues that will introduce a masculine vibe. A popular trend is mixing black, grey, white and gold, but if your bedroom is really small, you should go with more neutral and brighter shades. If you’re not a fan of white, you can always go with a pale grey for the backdrop and then use bolder hues for accent pieces. Of course, if you like blue, you can always experiment with different hues – deeper shades of blue combined with yellow is quite a stylish choice.

Adding a personal touch

Your bedrooms should reflect your personality and style, so don’t be afraid to add a personal touch to your room. Artwork is always a great way to add both character and style to your bedroom. You can display your favourite pieces and use them to create a cohesive look. For example, you can use colours and shapes that reflect the style of the room. You can also display your favourite books, or a collection of personal items. Interior design provides a lot of opportunities for self-expression, so don’t hesitate to use them.
