Color selection for a female's bedroom can be a challenging process. Some like flashy colors, and others are fine with whites and neutrals that can be dressed up or down as your mood dictates. However, there must be a midpoint where all women can feel happy with the bedroom decor.

In this article, we will explore bedroom decor ideas to inspire you so you can create a beautiful relaxing bedroom that reflects your personality.

Let's get into it and learn about colors and more such as:

  • Bohemian Rhapsody.
  • Don't be scared to use dark colors.

  • Create a glam bedroom.

How can I make my bedroom look stylish?

You can incorporate many techniques into your bedroom to add some class and imprint your personality into the bedroom space, leaving no doubt that your bedroom is feminine through and through.

One way is to use recessive colors. What are recessive colors? They are the colors on the softer side of the color spectrum, not quite pastel but colors such as soft mint greens and lighter shades of blue.

Recessive colors tend to envelop a room making the bedroom feel cozy and tranquil, perfect for your bedroom. If you think blue is masculine, then think again. With the right accessories, blue can be a seductive color that creates a beautiful ambiance in a woman's bedroom.

Here are a few ideas on how I can make my bedroom look more feminine?

  • If you don't have a wall-to-wall carpet add a rug, not just any rug, a rug is substantial in its dimensions to give a feeling of warmth and space.
  • You need to get your favorite art on the wall and a few sculptures if that's your thing. It's a personal choice, but you can use floral images or some scantily clothed images, anything that reflects your feminine personality.
  • Use lots of cushions and pillows on your bed, and it makes the bed feel and look sumptuous; you can add the colors you like, from deep sensual purples to dusty pink.
  • Keep clutter free, and keep your floor space immaculately clean and tidy. It's a woman's bedroom, not the local bar owner's bedroom.
  • Dominate your lighting. Every bedroom should have 3 points of light, a center light and then bedside lamps, and the lamps can be in the form of low pendants or sconces, whichever you prefer.
  • If your bedroom furniture is dark, like mahogany or cherry wood, select colors that will contrast and elevate the wood accents.

Let's get inspired on how I can decorate my room as a lady.

1. Classic lines

You should not be under the illusions that a woman's bedroom has to be floral and chintzy to make a feminine statement. On the contrary, some careful decor using light and neutral tones can create a beautiful bedroom fit for a woman of any age or stage of her life.
