Bedroom Wallpaper Designs for Your Next Bedroom Makeover


While paint is still the most popular option for a large majority of Indians when it comes to dressing up their bedroom walls, in the last few years more and more people have turned to bedroom wallpaper designs as another viable option. Wallpapers allow you the freedom to treat your bedroom to more frequent makeovers without burning a hole in your pocket. However, when you are handed a catalogue of bedroom wallpaper designs, it’s also important to evaluate the care and consciousness that has gone into their making. Make sure you ask the retailer for wallpaper options that are free of Volatile Organic Compounds, better knowns as VOCs—the chemicals that emit toxic fumes, which then linger in the air for many days, after a wallpaper is freshly applied. These days, wallpaper organic options include cotton cellulose, cotton threads and even recycled paper. Do your research well before you pick the pattern and colour that matches your personality. Indeed, your choice of wallpaper could say a lot about you.

 

BEDROOM WALLPAPER IDEAS FOR THE VINTAGE LOVER

If you love a touch of opulence and have a soft spot for all things vintage, this bedroom wallpaper with motifs reminiscent of miniature paintings can be a delightful way to dress up your walls. However, while going for a rich, deep shade—such as the indigo in this room—it would be wise to play up on one wall instead of all four. (Dark colours absorb light and can be overwhelming if you have a modest-sized bedroom.)

Also, you don’t need too many things screaming for attention when you have opted for a bold, glamorous wallpaper such as this one. Therefore, choose wall art wisely. The framed illustration of the bicycle here is all about elegance and simplicity.

BEDROOM WALLPAPER IDEAS FOR THE GLAMOROUS MINIMALIST

If you like modern wallpaper ideas for bedrooms that are all about understated sophistication and minimalism, there is a wide array of bedroom wallpaper designs available in muted pastels out there. All that lovely simplicity on your walls should not translate into a blah and boring ambience, though. For a super glam and contemporary vibe, choose wallpapers patterned with metallic accents/sheen. Want to up the sex appeal a notch further? Hang a sizeable wall art in a contrasting shade.

BEDROOM WALLPAPER IDEAS FOR THE OUTDOORS JUNKIE

Besides being a nod to the great outdoors, a light shade of lush green on your bedroom walls can make your private space appear larger while adding to the height of the room. (Tip: All cool colours such as blue, violet and green conjure a sense of tranquillity and airiness.) The delicate motifs of flora and fauna bring in an element of playfulness, dreamscapes and serenity, all rolled into one. The overall green vibe can be as calming as settling into your own little nook under the shade of a large, ancient tree.

BEDROOM WALLPAPER IDEAS FOR THE WHIMSICAL HUMOURIST

Instead of run-of-the-mill pretty choices in florals and stripes, if you want your bedroom wall to exude your offbeat, zany personality, keep an eye out for unusual motifs without exactly sacrificing subtlety. For instance, even though the wallpaper here is dominated by a dense scattering of cacti, large blooms and fruits, the beige background and the genteel colour palette keep things delightful without running the risk of being labelled gaudy. Unless you love overkill, go for bed linen and floor rugs in colours that are wonderfully restrained and delicate.

BEDROOM WALLPAPER IDEAS FOR THE CLASSY DAISY

Block prints may seem like a vanilla choice, thanks to the recurring motifs that they are laid out in. But the sheer visual impact of such a choice also depends on the pattern and colour schemes you opt for. This wallpaper borrows inspiration from the exquisite swirls of flowering plants and blooms that form a bulk of the repetitive inlay work on the marbled walls of the Taj Mahal. The red floral motifs on the grey background add up to a royal, classy vibe.

BEDROOM WALLPAPER IDEAS FOR THE WILD AND EDGY STYLIST

You need to have a fair share of verve and panache to root for this bedroom wallpaper design that looks like it has walked out of one of the many Tahitian landscapes painted by artist Paul Gauguin. The intensely saturated teal and leafy green, punctuated with spurts of buttercup yellow, takes you deep into the woods. Make sure you have tons of sunlight streaming into your bedroom, else this could easily lead to a sombre space. While it’s only rational to tone things down with plain bedlinen and accessories, if you love a touch of spirited eccentricity in design, go ahead and get yourself the biggest long-legged blooms in large vases, a statement night lamp and bedlinen in a psychedelia of colours.
