There are so many ways to decorate abedroom, and whether you plan on mixing patterns and textures to just one aesthetic, the first step is actually quite simple: peruse a bunch of different bedroom styles. If your goal is to pull pieces from different design movements and effortlessly blend them together, looking at bedroom styles will help you understand your options. And if your aim is to go all-in on one aesthetic, you’ll find the blueprint for pulling it off.
Of course, reading up on bedroom styles is one thing—and actually seeing those aesthetics executed is another. So we’ve rounded up some of the most strikingmono-style bedrooms we could find. Each of these bedrooms nods to an era, a design movement, or a visual motif, and demonstrates exactly how to pull off that bedroom style in your space.
Scandinavian design is known for its sleek shapes, cozy feel, and minimalist approach to décor—three features that make for a truly lovely bedroom. Since the aesthetic is so pared-down, it’s pretty easy to pull off.
Mid-century modern design has become a fan-favorite, and it’s not hard to see why. The design movement—which dates back to the mid-1900s—was all about marrying function with form. So stock up on sleek versions of the furniture you need, keep décor to a minimum, and favor materials that own what they are.
Bright and breezy, coastal décor makes you feel like you’re by the beach even when there’s no ocean in sight. The relaxed aesthetic is known for its emphasis on natural light, textured materials, and beachy colors.
There’s nothing wrong with keeping it simple. And since the minimalist design movement is all about intentionality, it should leave you with a space that feels as good as it looks. Focus on scoring the pieces you need like a sturdy bed, some cozy bedding, a nightstand, and a bedside lamp. Keep your aesthetic clean by favoring sleek lines and neutral colors wherever you can.
The word “monochromatic” describes a color scheme—not an aesthetic. But since monochromatic bedrooms are so eye-catching, they’re worth considering as you decorate your space. To pull off the look, simply pick a color and stick with it. And remember that you can add contrast by exploring different shades of that color.
