How to Decorate Bedrooms in Any Style

The Home Decor Capsule Wardrobe is a collection of home decor items consisting of permanent items (quality, heavy furniture) and interchangeable home decor items (accessories and art).   There is an emphasis on quality, not quantity.  The concept allows you to live in style, without doing a complete overhaul of your rooms each season.

We’ve applied this concept to many living rooms, but can the concept of the Home Decor Capsule Wardrobe be applied to bedrooms?  Yes, it can. You can know how to decorate bedrooms in any style.  Let’s compare two bedroom styles, French Country and Bohemian.

French Country Bedroom Elements:

  • Soft, neutral colors
  • Embellishments like ruffles and florals.
  • Traditional brass mirror and other hits of gold.
  • Bed with a ruffled skirt
  • Distressed wood and other distressed items
  • Louis XVI chair or even a Ghost chair.
  • A neutral rug
  • Simple vase of flowers

Bohemian Bedroom Elements:

Home Decor Capsule Wardrobe for Bedrooms

So, now know the difference between two decor styles.  Next, how do we embrace these styles? How to decorate a bedroom in any style? Is it costly or time consuming?  No.  Within the framework of the Home Decor Capsule Wardrobe, switching decor styles is easy.  Your foundation pieces are:  your bed, your bedside tables, and your dresser (I don’t actually have a dresser in my bedroom, but many do).  These pieces are pricey, heavy to move, not easy to change around.  The foundation pieces stay in your space season after season.
 
Ok then, what changes? Accessories change, as the seasons change, as your mood changes. Accessories are the interchangeable decor parts within the Home Decor Capsule Wardrobe – even for bedrooms.  In the graphic above, we changed: wall art, mirrors, rugs, plants, and lamps.  These changes created a whole new look.  Take a look at the Before and the After in the graphic above.  We hope you can use this graphic to visualize your next room refresh.  You deserve to wake up in a bedroom that inspires you, and reflects your personality.  Yes, redecorating a bedroom, in any style, is easy.

How to Decorate in Any Style

Have you had enough modern home decor, and you want to go back to something a little more traditional?  Maybe you’ve never updated your spaces in the first place, and feel it’s a good time to go modern?  Did you know there are distinct, identifiable elements in each home decor genre?  Once you decide you need a change, you’ll be happy to know how interchangeable home decor can be, and how easy it is to change home decor styles.  First, let’s compare two home decor styles, then we will see how easy it is to decorate in any style, within the framework of the Home Decor Wardrobe Capsule.

Modern decor

First, if you struggle to identify what is modern, look for these features:

  • Clean lines
  • Abstract art
  • Netural tones
  • Calm, serene spaces
  • Use of natural materials
  • No curvy lampshades.  Lampshades range from straight and square to angular and industrial, but no traditional curves.

Transitional decor

Next, transitional decor is often compared to Traditional decor, because it goes back to softer, curvier lines, without going all the way back to traditional skirted sofas and heavy furniture pieces.  An abundance of these features in your favorites will indicate you prefer transitional home decor:

  • Antique rugs that have been re-dyed or distressed.
  • Abstract art is mixed with floral prints (see graphic above).
  • Formal portraits, usually art prints, that have been distressed or softened.
  • Steel or powder coated matte black metal in the place of brass or nickel.
  • Curvy, but not tufted sofas, and chairs.
  • Sofas are not as airy as modern sofa, or up on legs, nor are they skirted, as a traditional sofa would be.

Home Decor Capsule Wardrobe

Then, how to decorate in any style? Is it costly or time consuming?  No.  Within the framework of the Home Decor Capsule Wardrobe, switching decor styles is easy.  Your foundation pieces should be set:  Favorite sofa, coffee table, end tables.  These pieces are pricey, heavy to move, and therefore not easy to change around.  The foundational pieces stay in your space season after season.

Rotating your accessories

Ok then, what changes? Accessories change, as the seasons change, as your mood changes. Accessories are the interchangeable decor parts within the Home Decor Capsule Wardrobe.  In the graphic above, we changed: wall art, throw pillows, rugs, table art, and sometimes, lighting.  These changes created a whole new look.  We hope you can use this graphic to visualize your next room refresh.  We know your visitors will appreciate your versatility and elevated style.  Yes, redecorating in any style is easy.

Wall Paper Ideas | Wall Art | Visual Clarity

Nothing can have a bigger impact on the mood of a room than wall paper.  I love Calico wall paper because they offer so much custom-made choice.  They are all about “taking art out of the frame and putting it onto the wall.”  Creating wall art.  Their merger of traditional techniques and digital design combine to offer a very organic, bespoke product.  I have visited this product on display, and in house, and my impression is Calico has the flexibility to cater to any style and taste.  It all depends on what you crave.
