Garden Bedroom

There are countless ways that you can personalize a room and make it your own. Everything in a room from the wall color and furniture to the carpet and knick-knacks on a shelf all make the room unique and individualized.

When decorating a bedroom, many people prefer to choose a theme for the room. Creating a themed room will give everything within that area a sense of unity, and by decorating in a theme you can accomplish a put-together appearance. Depending on the theme you choose to go with, you will need to consider furniture, paint colors, decorations, window treatments, rugs, and more to go together in a theme.

There are many wonderful bedroom themes to choose from, but one of the most beautiful is the garden theme. A garden bedroom gives you the feel of being surrounded by plants and flowers in a lovely outdoor setting, and this theme gives your room a fresh and exciting look. Decorating a garden bedroom doesn't have to be very complicated or expensive, either.

To start your garden bedroom, you will first want to pick which colors you will focus on. You can use inspiration from the garden to get you started. Do you want to use colors from a particular flower, a type of tree, or garden leaves? Popular colors for a garden bedroom include shades of green, pinks, purples, and browns.

Paint the walls a light or neutral tone. A tan, light peach, or subtle green color can look great as a base to your garden decorating. If you are feeling artistic, you can paint flowers on the walls or use stick-on decals to decorate. Choose furniture that looks garden-inspired and elegant for the room.

Decorating with flowers is another option for the garden bedroom. Take care not to overdo it, though—a ton of fake flowers around the room could end up looking tacky. Choose a few nice arrangements to display in the room on a shelf or table, and think about using some live plants as well near windows. You can also choose a floral-pattern bedspread or green, leaf-inspired bedding. Other garden-like pieces, like a flower-shaped pillow or vines wound around windows or bedposts, can help add to the effect of an outdoor garden atmosphere.

The bedroom isn't the only part of your house where the garden theme can work well. Instead, you may want to implement this look into the kitchen, living room, or bathroom.
