I have a secret wish: I want to live in a hotel, one of those fancy, rustic, tropical ones. I love their rustic modern designs and their white bedrooms that feel so light and airy. It’s funny because I hate hotels.
I suppose I just like the decor, and having someone come do my bed every day, do the cleaning, change my towels. I am sure it’s one of those things that are great when daydreaming but gets old in real life. Perhaps I can recreate their serene modern white bedrooms with some decorating ideas, and some minor shopping.
If you too love white bedrooms, and dream of turning yours into a serene refuge, here are some ideas to help you.
Great ideas to decorate a white bedroom
- Pick your white: There’s more than just one white, you know. You can go with as close a pure white as is actually physically possible, or maybe a creamy white that will make your room feel warmer, or maybe a bluish tone to make it look cool and tropical. Get some pain samples and do some experimenting (if you’re allowed to paint your walls, that is).
- Add color: You should know that you do not need to bar color and fun, or turn it into one of those minimalistic horror shows that look like an old-timey assylum. Yeah, white goes great with whatever color you love most. The trick is being a bit stingy with the colors
- Add texture: Natural fiber rugs, lamps, baskets and accesories go great with a white decor, adding warmth without being too loud. Furry, knitted or crocheted pillows are also a great addition.
- Plants galore!: Nothing like plants to make a space feel welcome, and alive. Pothos are amazing, and can be draped over things, or put somewhere high and let them hang. Palms add a great tropical touch to any room, and well, there’s always cacti for the brown-thumbed ones among us.
Shop the look
Pick some ideas from these beautiful bedrooms and incorporate them into yours. These are some of my favorite picks: Furry pillows, straw floor cushions, and knitted pillows are perfect to mix and match with your white bedroom style.
