Seeking Shelter: Stylish Bedroom Décor Inspiration
Bedroom design and decoration inspiration to help you transform a "plain Jane" boring space into a stylish bedroom that you'll love to escape to every day.
Even in the best of times we crave for a space to where we can escape to seek sanctuary. A room that reflects our personal style and is designed with the promise of renewal, restoration and a welcome respite from chaos and stress.
Today, four months into the surreal reality of pandemic life, the importance of a place of our own where we can find refuge, disconnect from tumultuous events beyond our control, and relax has been elevated from a “nice to have” interior design wish list item to a “must-have”.
The bedroom naturally lends itself as the perfect space to design your at-home haven tailored to meet your needs and express your decorative style. With just a few home décor pieces and furniture, a set of luxurious linens and bedding, a little paint, posh wall coverings and fashionable flooring – you can transform a “plain Jane” boring space into a stylish shelter that you’ll love to escape to each and every day.
Embrace the carefree bohemian lifestyle and set your decorative goals on designing a bedroom as an exotic escape with decorative references to places traveled and saturated with Nature’s rich colors, textures and motifs symbolizing the natural world.

Would you believe that design zen can rise from eclectic chaos? If like many of us, you are a fan of a variety of design styles, eras, and home decor then you’re going to love the concept of decorating your bedroom following the Yin Yang principle. Guided by this principle, disparate decorating styles, design periods, and masculine and feminine home decor elements can result in a harmoniously composed, sophisticated, and polished bedroom space. This balanced decorative outcome is possible by focusing on what unifies the diverse, seemingly conflicting design cues. In this case, color and pattern were the decor glue needed to architect a gorgeous bedroom that feels like each piece was curated and collected over time to create a truly unique room.
