Unique Bedroom Decor
Creating a personal and unique bedroom decor can be both serious and a little on the wild side. Bedrooms are a place to escape, a sanctuary and a reflection of ourselves. Texture is an element in a bedroom that can add softness, hardness and visual interest. Art work is another example of adding personal and unique touches to a bedroom.

Tips to Create Unique Bedroom Decor
Texture in the bedroom – Texture is not only about the feel of an object, but also about the way it can create a contrast in the room. A bed for example may be made of a rich dark hard wood and then adding a soft flowing sheer fabric cascading from post to post will create that visually unique contrast. Pillows are another example of how texture and contrast work well together. This contrast can be achieved by combining a few decorative pillows that are filled with soft down feathers and covered in a silky lush velvet fabric with crisper, firmer white pillow shams.
Red and White Bedroom Decor
Art work – Art is a fantastic way to create a unique bedroom decor on the wall. Select a wall and use art work stacked on top of each other in rows of three to six depending on wall space, to fill the wall. The trick is to keep the frames in the same color and size. A special piece of art can also be displayed on easel instead of the wall; this piece can become the focal point of the bedroom.
Ethnic Bedroom Decor
Add a touch of wild – Animal prints are incredibly versatile, they can be printed on fabric, and used to upholster a chair or lounge. The animal print can be incorporated into the pillows and a throw across a bed, valances and drapery treatments. Adding an area rug placed under the foot of the bed or under a chair and table can add and element of surprise to any bedroom.
Unique Bedroom Decor Ideas
Idea One: Girl’s Room in Paisley
Designer Windsor Smith decorated a Los Angeles family home in a glamorous, feminine style. The 10-year-old daughter’s bedroom is “young Indian princess meets modern preteen.” Walls are covered in Peter Dunham’s Samarkand. With the vintage iron bed’s duvet and bed skirt in the same paisley print, the effect is lavishly girly.
Idea Two: A Rustic Bedroom
Designed by Mimi Maddock McMakin, this Adirondack-style bedroom has an upholstered headboard.
Idea Three: A Tropics-Inspired Master Bedroom
In a plantation-like master bedroom in a Florida house with a stenciled frieze, antique pier tables are the perfect bedside height for the unusually high British Colonial-style bed; the fabric of the canopy’s valance is from William Ashby, and the bed skirt, in Hinson’s Dottery Blue on off-white, matches the custom club chair and ottoman. The pattern of the Stark carpet is echoed on the master bathroom floor. Custom wall color is glazed and combed. Designer Robin Bell designed the decorative Gothic trim.
Idea Four: Diamond-Shaped Accent
Having admired diamond-shaped windows in stately old Syracuse houses, designer Thom Filicia introduced several in this lake house bedroom in Skaneateles as a repeating motif: “I like how they float in a wall.” This one punctuates a screen wall between master bedroom and shower. On the bed, an orange duvet from Serena & Lily warms up a blue one from John Robshaw. The adjoining bathroom has twin Kohler vanities and Arhaus mirrors.
Idea Five: A Modern Bedroom Mixed with Antiques
Designer Miles Redd was “channeling great English bedrooms” in the master bedroom of this New York apartment. He started with the antique Coromandel screen, which inspired the subdued palette. The painted faux-horn bedposts support a canopy made from Zimmer + Rohde Holbrook cream silk satin.
The key to create unique bedroom decor is only by keeping furniture and linens basic, and get trendy with easily replaceable paint colors and accessories.
