The 90s were a time when home design and decorating moved towards a more sanitized look with bright colors of the 70s and 80s being replaced by more understated hues such as beige and white and simple straight lines taking over from eclectic designs.
The contemporary variants of the classic Zen style still remain true to many of the original principles but give them a more urbane twist. Since many of us might not wish to adopt that full-fledged Asian look a good compromise is to create a minimal bedroom that is cozy inviting and has a distinct character of its own. This is of course easier said than done and the focus here must be on eliminating clutter while making sure that the bedroom is not too sterile and artificial.
The two bedrooms below featured on Corrine Kowal and Design Sponge show the same ominous cloud wallpaper. Perfect for those who get a calming effect from storms!
Your bedroom is meant to be a place of relaxation. If it doesn’t offer you that at least to some extent then you’re going to have a hard time getting to sleep. Despite the fact that there are so many different ways you can create a calming atmosphere with your bedroom furniture and decor an incredibly unique way to do it is by taking inspiration from cloud gazing over a blue or gray sky. How much more relaxing can you get?
This bedroom featured on My Colortopia doesn’t have any actual cloud shapes on the walls or anywhere else in the room but still matches the atmosphere with the color choices of blue white silver and gray.
As an alternative to paint or wallpaper a simple way to bring some cloudy inspiration into your bedroom is by hanging cloud-like objects above your bed. Check out this clever light fixture from Caisak or these DIY cloud puffs made from white stuffing.
