What is a modern contemporary bedroom?

A modern contemporary bedroom has clean lines, sculptural silhouettes, and a neutral color palette. Spaces are uncluttered and have a minimalist feel to them.

Contemporary spaces use a mixture of materials, textures, and abstract patterns. Each element adds style and personality while creating a calm inviting vibe.

How do I make my bedroom contemporary?

To make your bedroom contemporary start with a neutral color palette. Once you establish what your color will be it’s time to layer in texture, materials, and patterns.

Doing so will create a space that’s full of personality and style. Adding trendy details like mixed materials, unique pieces, and abstract patterns will create an original design that’ll last for many years to come.

What’s the difference between contemporary and modern?

Modern design refers to a style from the past that took place during the early to mid-twentieth century. Quite often it has a monochromatic color palette, clean lines, balance, minimalism, and natural materials.

Contemporary design is about what’s trending now and in the future. Details include neutral colors, layers of texture, mixed materials, organic sculptural shapes, and a light airy vibe.

What are contemporary colors?

Contemporary colors are neutrals, black, and white. Examples of neutral colors are taupe, beige, greige, ivory, and grey.

Most contemporary spaces feature a neutral color palette as the background with metallics or a pop of color for interest.

Follow the 60-30-10 rule when designing your bedroom. The first 60% is your dominant color, 30% is the secondary color, and 10% is an accent color.

Follow the 60-30-10 rule when designing your bedroom. The first 60% is your dominant color, 30% is the secondary color, and 10% is an accent color.

Remember to sprinkle your pop color or metal finish in a minimum of three places for balance and flow. The rule is things arranged in odd numbers are more visually appealing, memorable, and interesting than those in even numbers.

How much does a bedroom makeover cost?

Before we get into all the resources of this design let’s go through how much it costs. A great way to create a memorable design is to mix high and low pieces.

Splurge on your bed since it needs to last and is where you’ll be spending the most amount of time. Areas to save include the nightstands, area rug, and artwork.

If there is one thing I’ve learned through the design process it’s that there’s ALWAYS a dupe of that designer product you love. Which is awesome if you are just starting out and need to save.

How can I make my bedroom look expensive?

Make your bedroom look expensive by curating the design from multiple retailers. Going to a furniture store and buying a bedroom set off the showroom floor is the WORST thing you can do.
Matchy furniture is a thing of the past and will date your space fast. That said pull three inspirational images for the vibe you’re after, create a concept board with pieces you love, order your furniture, put the room together, and relax in your new bedroom sanctuary.

Here is the breakdown for this room and how much your investment will be:

  1. $2,030.00 Upholstered Bed
  2. $1298 Boucle Bench
  3. $371 Nighttable x2
  4. $740 Table Lamp x2
  5. $1199 Dresser
  6. $448 Floor Mirror
  7. $1200 Area Rug
  8. $1960 Chandelier
  9. $499 Artwork
  10. $99.95 Nightstand Artwork x2
  11. $130 Pillow Covers + fills x3
  12. $129 Throw Pillow
  13. $69 Frame
  14. $70 Vase
  15. $39 Candle

Total: $11,663

The total above reflects the full sticker price but many of the items are currently on sale. For the sake of full transparency, I added up the non-sale price so you’re aware of the actual cost.

There are many areas you can save but again splurge on the bed and mattress if you can only pick one area. Your back and mindset will thank you!

Just saying!!
