There are a great many ways to update bedrooms with all the on-going trends in today’s decor styles. Whether your style tends to a formal look or one that is more casual, variety abounds. There’s just no need to have a neglected looking bedroom anymore. In interior design today, black and white is a popular contemporary decorating trend. This idea also extends to bedrooms.Whether your look is formal or tending to more casual, black and white may well work for your bedroom update. The bedroom shown below is dramatic, fun and sophisticated. The dark wall colour adds interest and dramatic ambiance, and the overall tone of the room is cozy.  The tall cream upholstered headboard draws the eye upward, and adds presence to the bed. The clean lines of the bed and side tables add contemporary flair, and the smoky tone of the wood adds elegance to the room design. The artwork does not overpower the room design, but adds a  further touch of modern glamour without making the room too stuffy.  Clear glass accessories are displayed on the sleek bedside tables, adding enough interest to pull off a personal touch without a feeling of crowding or clutter. The look is elegance with a dramatic punch.The feature wall has become a phenomenon that we often use to add impact to a room design. Sometimes we use a striking wallpaper, a wallpaper mural or even a painted mural to add interest to traditional interior design. In this case, the upholstered headboard runs up to the ceiling, adding a greater sense of ceiling height in the room. Add in modern lighting and updated bedding and we are pulled right into modern days. The bedding can be tailored or casual in style.The bedroom below is quite sleek and clean in design but it switches course with the addition of the large and colourful abstract geometric painted feature wall treatment. The bedding is just as interesting as the wall treatment, and related back to the dynamic wall by means of colour repetition. The wall colour is surprisingly subdued and restful, due to the choices of colour hues. The overall feeling in the room is carefree fun. Space is often at a premium in bedrooms. The overall effect is relaxed and classy.In a bedroom with very tall ceilings, it is often difficult to imagine how to decorate in a dramatic way. These room designs often lack impact. A wall gallery of artwork can lend interest, drama and even an element of texture. In this room below, drama is added with the tall upholstered floor to ceiling headboard. The eye is drawn upward by the vertical lines and the height of the headboard. The rich purple colour of the headboard are restful yet dramatic. There is a funky touch of fun in the abstract artworks.Simplicity, colour, and clean lines go a long way to achieve high style in a transitional way. A colour palette that is restful and interesting through the use of traditional dark wood paneling and elegant lighting also achieve this effect. Fresh white bedding, a large abstract artwork and a marble lamp base could add pop and coastal flair. A white upholstered headboard and airy white side table can lend a modern sophistication, as could an area rug in a grey geometric motif on a white ground. This restful colour palette in smoky grey and greyed cream in the master bedrooms below draw us in away from the cares of the world.  The bedding is practical and elegant in the space and the quilt and toss cushions add a note of charming sophistication. The metallic pendant lighting brings sparkle to the colour schemes, and the upholstered wall feature at the head of the bed on the left adds subtle drama.Having finally settled into your new home, you suddenly realize that the closets are woefully inadequate.  So many people struggle daily with storage issues that no amount of purging will alleviate. Let’s face it. We have stuff and we like our stuff. Storage is a priority just as adequate lighting is. Often, in today’s homes, these two issues are neglected far too long, and we become unhappy with our home. Due to clutter, it just never looks great.  The room below has a storage wall that will function to hide a great many belongings, as well as look good doing it. Dynamic colour schemes create much more impact in room design than simply neutrals can ever do. Today’s décor dynamic is wide ranging and flexible. Adding graphic punch or interesting colour  to the room design need not be limited to use only on the walls. Add a hit of hot accent colour to any room and your off to the races. The room below  makes great use of yellow, a colour that can often backfire in room design. In this case it is on the ceiling, which adds a note of innovation and daring. Its cheery vibrancy lends an upbeat charm to the room, and the funky barn door headboard adds whimsical rusticity.Wallpaper is another way to really add punch to a room design. It may be light and fresh in a traditional way. With a little creativity, it make take a turn to “the dark side” and really add drama to your room design through the use of a darker colour palette.
