So Many Bedroom Themes!
A wide selection of bedroom themes can leave you confused when you are set on a decorating quest for your bedroom. Your choices range from the simple to the outrageous and you should be ecstatic because there are no strict templates to follow. You can go over-the-top and explore ideas that have not been tried by others yet. A simple object such as a printed wallpaper can trigger your imagination to wander into the possibilities of new and fresh color combinations, exciting patterns, as well as adventurous designs. Your personal preferences and taste should be manifested with the choices of interior design elements that you will apply in your bedroom decorating style.
Deciding on a perfect theme for your bedroom will be a breeze once you have exposed yourself to various designs that are available. A fairytale inspired bedroom or a gothic theme can work for a teenaged girl but a more subtle and not too literal version can be applied to an adult room. Velvety purple over drapery and white sheer, gauzelike curtain combination are an excellent window treatment for a medieval gothic bedroom with pointed arch shaped headboard for the bed and an exquisite canopy with lacy and frilly fabric.
If this image is too bold for you, then how about taking a 180-spin to the opposite direction by incorporating a Japanese Zen theme for your bedroom? All you need is a modern platform bed with glossy lacquered black finish, a native semi-circular ceiling fan, a free standing folding screen with a Japanese landscape design and you have a representation of an austere Japanese style bedroom.
Or, you might find this extreme elegance, and almost too basic simplicity very radical and you may want to choose a theme that is more in tune with your calm and positive disposition. Then you should consider using a country or a tropical theme. They do not have to embrace all of the elements needed to have a consistent design scheme. You can identify certain things that you like, such as distinct furniture pieces and accessories of those styles, and mix and match them with more contemporary design elements. A country bedroom will seem cozier and more restful with earth tone paints and a wall with horizontal striped combinations of alternating half round logs and flat surfaced. A tropical design motif for the bedroom can make use of a simple four poster bed with a very thin canvas fabric, white canopy and creamy white sheets and pillow cases. Greens such as potted plants or an accent wall of olive green with pierced carved screen appliqué will enhance that breezy and natural ambiance of the bedroom.
Researching Bedroom Themes
You do not need to spend a lot of time researching the theme of your bedroom, especially since the obvious and representational details are the ones that you will most likely use, but if you decide to have a more abstract adaptation of the bedroom themes, then you must delve deeper into their origins and characteristics and perhaps, you can devise ways to make these designs manifest in the most subtle yet creatively artistic of ways. You have to remember that these bedroom themes need not dominate the interior of your bedroom. They will need your personal involvement, especially with the finishing touches for your bedroom interior because you will be the one to occupy this space every day of your life. The bedroom themes you consider should reflect your ideas of what a perfect bedroom should be like for you.
