15 Bedroom wallpaper ideas, styles, patterns and colors

Even though it’s true that the bedroom should be as simple as possible in order to feel airy, calm and relaxing, it also feels cold and empty without a hint of color and texture. It’s why accent walls are an especially beautiful feature in the bedroom. They represent a way of introducing color and pattern into the décor and they complete the overall design.

Dynamic and colorful bedroom with diverse patterns on the wall and bedding

There is a large diversity of wallpaper types to choose from. Some feature very simple designs and patterns while others are a burst of energy. Depending on what you are trying to achieve by using wallpaper in the bedroom, you can either choose something simple and delicate for an overall serene and calm décor or something dynamic and colorful that would bring everything together and would cheer up the atmosphere. Usually the star of the wallpaper design is either the pattern or the color. An intricate pattern would stand out more if combined with simple, neutral colors while a simple pattern could use some bold shades.

Covering all the walls of the bedroom with wallpaper can be a little overwhelming. Instead, you can choose of wall and turn it into an accent feature for the room. The usual choice is the wall against which the bed and headboard are placed. That’s mostly because this wall is not visible to those sitting in bed and thus they can relax without having these busy patterns interfering with the atmosphere. The pattern and the colors you choose for the wallpaper need to be in sync with the whole décor of the room.
