For bedroom decorating ideas that are vibrant, bright, and full of color, look no further than two unique colors – teal and gray. These two colors are a fantastic combination for any bedroom. Gray is always better when it’s cold, but it works equally well in the spring and summer when the light is shining. You can create a dramatic, yet warm effect by choosing textures like velvet and brocade.
Teal is a great neutral for just about any color scheme, because it mixes in so well with just about everything. You’ll find this color in soft pastels, metallic blues, browns, blacks, and yellows. Many people prefer the more traditional color schemes of white, cream, and beige, but you can create a beautiful bedroom environment with any color scheme you want. For bedroom inspiration, think about the rich, luxurious fabrics that you see in expensive hotels and mansions. Rich, cozy fabrics like chenille, satin, and shag add a touch of elegance to any bedroom.
Another popular bedroom style is a classic teal and gray theme, using one basic color scheme on the walls and a matching up-holstery color on the up-holstered furniture. This look gives emphasis to the larger furniture in the room – the headboard, the footboard, the dresser, and the chest of drawers. A small teal tray ceiling light will provide soft lighting for reading or napping during the day, and a pull-up bed feature can give extra seating for guests. There are many styles of bedroom furniture you can use in this design theme, including an end table, a coffee table, and a bookcase. You might also want to consider using a bed canopy, which is a retractable, fabric-covered panel that covers your duvet and provides a colorful, decorative backsplash for the walls.
Gray and teal create a very inviting atmosphere, so if you are decorating a master bedroom, consider pairing the two colors with some bright patterns and prints on the wallpaper. A reproduction of a Monet painting can make a striking background for the walls, especially if you have an oval or triangular window. Grey tones can also be used for the floor, tables, and accents, such as a silver tray table or a wicker accent table. Your throw pillows and curtains should be a neutral color family, such as tan and brown, or grey and black.
If you are decorating a guest bedroom, you may want to steer clear of the pattern on the walls. Instead, use a post-bed to create a two-shelf bed that hangs from the back wall. A fabric-post bed will provide extra storage space and can coordinate with many painted color schemes. Consider purchasing a quilt or two, or using a reproduction quilt on one wall. A matching window treatment on both walls will pull the room together.
Gray and teal create an upbeat palette for a bedroom, and you can incorporate several bright shades into your design. The baseboard colors of your bed sheet and pillow cases can contrast beautifully with the deep maroon and teal of the walls. Using a bold pattern on your wall treatment will draw attention to the design in the upper portions of the walls. Use a striped or plaid bedspread and throw pillows in rich tones for a contemporary look.
You can accessorize your light grey and teal walls with a few throw pillows that have an earthy tone to them. A plush Terry cloth bed skirt would look nice with a fitted sheet and a throws throw pillow. Wool throw, blanket, and sheets would be a nice addition to a light grey and teal-style bedroom. You could even use a few of these accent pieces to create a lovely country style bedroom decor. You could even find some vintage pieces and reupholster them to complete your light grey and teal walls decor.
You can also use throw pillows as an accent piece in your upholstered bedroom. Since the pillows will be the focal point of your bedroom, you want to choose something that is beautiful and eye-catching. Although you might not have the budget to replace expensive upholstery, you can always add fabric pillows to your walls as an upgrade. Fabric covered pillows will provide a soft, comfortable surface for you to sleep on. If you do not want to buy new fabric, you can always look for an inexpensive faux leather pillows.
