In this setting, you can see simplicity at its best. There is plenty of light coming from outside, which is in perfect harmony with the color of the bedroom. The plants add life and character to space, and the rug picks up the brown accents, creating a contrast with the dominant white. When designing your bedroom, you can have a wall portrait for added effect, as in this décor.


2. Bedroom with Green Accent Wall

While the green wall seems to be the dominant feature here, you can see that the white curtains also stand out. The armchair on the left-hand side matches the color on the bed. The paintings hanging above the armchair add color to the more subtly-colored wall.

The beauty of this room is further enhanced by the lime green window curtains – even though the curtains are the only items in this color, the whole room would be rather bland without them.


4. Bedroom with Sea Green Walls
