What do you prefer as a décor?

Well again here we have choices, it depends on how one wants the feel of the room.

By the feel, it means – do you want a hotel room experience or an exotic suite type feel, etc.

It is basically the interest one puts into the selection of décor that makes the room enjoyable, lively and heavenly.

Check out the look & feel of the bedrooms with the following decors:

Elegant look

You can go with a simple elegant look having a side table on each side on which the bed lamps are placed.

To coordinate with the walls of the room, choose the black & white frame for the walls behind.

Adding on to it white curtains would certainly throw light into the room.

The lamp light shade or the false ceiling light shade can be of cream yellow which gives a soothing touch to the room.

On the table, there can be a stand or a holder to keep things.

Synchronizing with the décor, the pillow covers, and the bedsheets preferably contrast color code which either is black or navy blue.

Another take on it can be the cozy feel where you go for hanging feathery light with a white bulb which gives a modern look.

And on the side table of the cot a flower pot in contrast to the walls, would add a sober look.

You can either go with flowers in sync with the décor of the room or put feathers that match the hanging light.

The wall behind the bed can have more than three to four photo frames.

It can either be wall décor frames or photographs of self in the black & white combination which shows the theme of the room.

What else could be better other than having a room for self with such cozy feels!

Hotel look and feel for the Bedroom


To have the feel of a hotel room, color the walls which can be a contrast for your furniture and the décor you use it to decorate. Like you can have a black bed designed and along with with it a center table with a combination of black & white wood.

A painting that has a black frame to be put on the walls would contrast more than anything.

To add on to the walls on the walls can be shaded with brown where a huge vase is made to stand along the wall matching the branches.

Side table on it is, as usual, an elegant look, and some of us might also prefer a TV in our room for that purpose.

A wall is color-coded with the brown matching the opposite side of the wall.

As a simple décor, a black mattress can go with the room’s floor matching the set up of the room. Black and white combination always has a striking look.

It might be ancient but never out of fashion!

While some of us prefer sober, elegant and calm look for bedrooms, most of the people also like to make the view of the room lively.

How does one make the room lively? Through furniture, wall accessories, photo frames, etc. one can make the feel livelier.

Décor items that bring liveliness to the bedroom

Even if it is a black and white color palette, the combination is always a contrast for other colors. Do you agree? While all your sheets and the curtains are of the color palette white & black in the room, you have walls where you can place the decors on the shelves.

Hanging shelves


One of the walls you can fix these hanging shelves depending on the items that need to go on them.

These can hold small frames, vases, clocks, antiques, etc.

Home plants


One can have these small pots of plants on one of the corners or small bonsai plants placed near the window or on the table.


This will make your room look natural and lively giving you a fresh feel. The plants can act as mood enhancers while you are in a bad mood or not in a state of thinking sanely.

The wall frames are the decors where one can experiment with, do you agree?


Yes, frames can reflect the interests of people, images of famous personalities or the art frames which usually go well with the black walls.

House swing

Isn’t this one thing favorite of everyone irrespective of age? Yes, the child within comes out when you see the swing and so the childlike feel is itself a lively state. Hence this swing adds to the décor. The swing can be of white or black depending on the walls you paint. If the swing is black in color take the cushioning white and vise versa.

Furniture that goes along with B&W bedroom

It is just one room and not the whole living space, hence we need minimalistic furniture inside the bedroom. Think what kind of furniture goes well? Well, then find out here…

The Masterpiece – Chair


The chair can be placed at any corner of the room so that if needed one can sit on it or else it adds to the view of the room.

One can either use it as a study table or a place where you can keep things.


The color can either be dark brown or black with respect to the walls.

Side tables


These again are in context with the color of the sheets or the walls, whichever makes it better.
