If you need a little inspiration creating your own Zen bedroom, read on!
- Add texture
The key to creating a peaceful sanctuary is texture. Think shaggy Moroccan rug, pom-pom throw and raw wooden beams.
- Keep it tonal
The secret to creating peace in any boudoir is sticking to a minimal color palette. Neutral tones ensure a calm and serene sentiment so you can breathe easy without distraction.
- Natural light
Ramp up the tranquility by letting in as much natural light as possible. If you don’t have floor-to-ceiling windows, then add pendant lighting to keep the room well-lit.
- Clear any distractions
The secret to keeping it Zen is getting rid of clutter. This is easier said than done, but having a distraction-free zone is the key to evoking calm.
Pair different fabrics together from linen to wool and faux-fur rugs. It’ll make your room look and feel cozy and warm, just the mood we all want in a bedroom.
- Make it Minimal
Clear your bedroom of everything except for the bare minimum: a bed, a light, and a nightstand
- Balance and symmetry
Add visual interest after considering symmetry in all your design elements. Make sure they offer balance and harmony without the clutter and distraction.
- Monochromatic chic
A monochromatic palette can be chic yet warm and snug. Paint your walls white as your base then apply touches of gray and charcoal for a minimal mix that will stand the test of time.
- Add space
Leave plenty of white space between furniture pieces so the room can breathe and flow.
- A Parisian touch
Don’t be afraid to add a Parisian flair to your bedroom. Try a wire canopy bed frame, fringed pillows, and a comfy love seat to create a room you’ll want to stay in for hours.
