Modern Bohemian Bedroom Interior Design

One of the benefits of modern design is you don’t need much to achieve the look. The style is simplistic, and when it comes to accessorizing a modern space, less is more. In terms of art for the walls, select one or two large, high-impact minimalist prints or paintings. Refrain from too many large pieces, especially if your room is small—modern design is all about the open spaces with room to breathe.

Contemporary Modern Bedroom Design

You don’t want too many accessories in a modern bedroom, but you also want storage hidden away. Refrain from using open shelves, or rolling clothing racks. Instead, opt for a natural wood dresser or bedside tables with drawers to keep knick-knacks from piling up. 

The more you can trend towards the look of a hotel room, or spa, the more tranquil and modern the space will appear. Remember, a cleared room means a clear mind and a good night’s sleep.  

Bedroom decluttering

The modern bedroom is clean. Clean lines, clean spaces, and a clean white color palette. To create a calming, modern atmosphere, try neutral colors on the wall, and in your bedding. Avoid too many bright pops of color, and instead up the texture with warm natural fiber pillows or luxe linen sheets

The modern bedroom is a simple, calming space where you can relax and unwind from the day. It doesn’t take much to achieve this look, and by bringing in a few elements, you can create that spa space for yourself.
