Bedroom Curtains, Artwork and Furniture: Elegance Personified
Let’s start with the curtains. They can make or break a room. The key, of course, is choosing curtains that best complement the room. When in doubt, always opt for elegance. When it comes to fabric, the choice is yours.
Selecting the Right Color
Unlike fabric, you must think hard on the right color. Curtain color should always reflect the room. Don’t be afraid to be bold, especially if the room is already splashed with bright colors. Play around with refreshing new themes until you find what works best. If the room is more somber, tone the curtain color down and go with a soft gray or taupe, for example.
More Things to Consider in a Curtain to Bring out a Theme
- Warm metallic colors convey warmth in a home, and bring out the color of natural solid wood.
- Cool colors, including white, mint and lilac, reflect cooler tones, which include pastel.
- With neutral tones in a variety of shades you can highlight deep colors and texture, which is ideal for creating a warm feeling.
- To highlight a theme, use matching wallpaper.
- A border at the top of the wall creates an alluring outline.
The Art of Utilizing Artwork
Artwork is ideal for illuminating an otherwise dull room. It also creates the illusion of depth. When hanging wall art, always keep in mind the scale and proportion of the prints you select. Try to hang art at eye level, unless your goal is to create a cascading motif.
Artwork can also be used to create a mood. Warm colors, of course, create warmth, as well as comfort. The use of neutral colors, such as white, brown, beige, and gray, makes for a calming environment. If you escape to a specific room for peace of mind or meditation, use red artwork, as well as red curtains, as that color is calming. Red also evokes passion and energy.
Additionally, artwork doesn’t have to be restricted to that which you hang. Have you ever considered a wall mural? Wall murals add an extra touch of elegance to any room. Make sure the topic of the mural matches the overall theme of the room. You can also use a sentimental image from your past to create a sense of joy, such as an image of family members.
Furniture as a Focal Point
Furniture, including recliners, ottomans and leather, is often used as a focal point in a room, and should go well with your curtains and artwork. In other words your theme. Use wicker or rattan to go with chrome or silver accents, for example. Leather creates a feeling of luxury and comfort.
Creating an elegant bedroom environment need not be expensive, and is quite easy to achieve. Choose a theme and adhere to it. Always ensure the curtains, wall art and furniture complement each other and you will create an environment you will never want to leave. And if you’re successful, you’ll want that feeling in every room of your house.
