I’ve decorated my master bedroom in a mostly neutral palette over the years, sometimes changing out a few of the accents and even painting the walls a different hue, but I’ve found that decorating with neutral shades of gray and off white adds to its serenity and my personal comfort. Last year, I wrote about decorating living spaces in neutral palettes but today the focus is on the bedroom, and a closer look what happens when smart design choices combine to create a soothing retreat.
Texture is an important element in any space, especially a neutral one, and it can be layered in several ways around a room. Notice how in this elegant feminine bedroom, a capiz shell chandelier brings subtle shimmer and the boxy lambs wool ottomans add soft and cozy feeling.
Stone and metal surfaces are another element to consider including, and woven or natural materials bring additional texture to a mostly neutral bedroom.
Pattern plays a beneficial role and mixing them up is easy when you stick with those that are complementary, such as the pale celedon zebra, Ikat, and botanical patterns combined in this relaxing retreat.
