1. What colors are recommended for a bedroom?
First of all, although it is usually the first topic, wall colors in a bedroom is not necessarily a starting point. Depending on the furniture and the elements of a bedroom, we can decide on colors later. If we were to choose the color in the beginning, it might complicate your project – selecting the furniture and decoration objects. Nevertheless, the colors we choose can influence the general state of the space. For example, if you need a space to sleep and relax our recommendations would be warm shades of beige, cream, light blue or different shades of grey. These are very easy to match with the rest of ambience and every night you will enjoy your most wanted tranqulity. For avoiding space cluttering and exhaustion, you should stay away from strong, contrasting colors. If you want to add color touches you can do it with decorative elements – drapes, bed linens, armchairs or carpets.
Most of the time, for playing safe, it is recommended to use many shades of a single color. Your bedroom decoration project should become simpler from the moment you decided on the shades for this space.
2. Important elements of bedroom decoration
Whether natural or artificial, light is an essential element of space. The look of your bedroom is influenced by the time spent in there and the nature of your bedroom time.

If space is not a problem, you can order a window sill from Volakas Marble or granite – the most durable natural stone – for enjoying your morning coffee or simply as support for your flower pots.

4. Bedroom models for matching your style
A bedroom decoration project, regardless of its style, should use natural materials, even if this means refurbished wood objects, a plain marble shelf or just a plant in a pot. Natural materials influence our state of mind much more than we imagined. Modern does not mean kitsch, but a more optimized style and geometric lines crossing the space. For avoiding an overcrowded room with cabinets, use a single wardrobe/dressing and at most bedside tables. Choose honed and natural finishes. Natural stone panels can be used for wall cladding. The bed, perhaps the most important element of this room: choose a simple, solid wood model. For a special touch, you can use a minimalistic dresser at the end of the bed for storage. We recommend the use of lighting objects with geometric shapes and chromed finish.
Simplicity should be the key word here. That's why textures and congested prints have no place in a modern bedroom decoration project. And this is also valid for strong colors that need to be avoided, alongside shades of beige and greys. At the very least you can match your decoration project with a painting above the bed, acting also as splash of color.
This bedroom model is a space that caresses your senses after a busy day. A retreat and a soul sanctuary.

The white furniture is a perfect fit for the minimalist style that can be matched with different shades of grey from decoration items. Simplicity is also the key word for this decoration project.
A decoration project for this type of bedroom relies on using wood and solid wood objects, floral prints and collectibles – refurbished vintage furniture.

This type of bedroom decoration is an extension of your Bohemian personality and must be expressed accordingly. If you want a matching bed with timeless classic style, choose a solid wooden bed headboard and a comfortable mattress to sink in every night.
5. Decorative elements for bedroom decoration
Everybody loves large windows rooms, especially with a view of nature, but there are moments when you want to sleep late. Draperies are ideal solutions for covering your windows and providing them a consistent design, yet also with a specific purpose: to keep the light away from sleepy people. Velvet is an excellent material that conveys elegance and refinement, but it is also ideal for keeping the light away. If you consider it a too abundant texture for your bedroom decoration, you can use cotton, linen or silk draperies, opting for a darker color. Depending on the available space, you can also choose draperies, if you don't want them to be simple. Should your bedroom have a low height ceiling, vertical stripes draperies will make the place seem taller.
Ancient furniture has a story behind and you can keep it by refurbishing it. A space decoration project does not always mean throwing away or donating all the furniture, even if this is ancient. By refurbishing it, you will reveal a hidden beauty, save your budget from expense and create a point of attraction. The ancient wooden table can be transformed into a toilet table where every lady in the house can spoil herself. You still have to add a mirror and a light source and it will serve as a retreat.

Some elements of different styles might seem fine together, but as long as you don't have an expert opinion, you'd better stick to one style.
