Bedroom Decor Themes And Makeover Tips


Here’s one for the cool kid in you who plays by his own rules! The indie aesthetic has been borrowed from music genres like shoegaze and several independent films with nuanced themes. From quirky decor accents to whimsical mood boards and thrift finds, an indie bedroom reigns as an unapologetically bold and brazen interior aesthetic. Blending different styles such as retro, boho chic, and grunge, an indie bedroom is a melting pot of distinct themes. 

Indie Bedroom Decor

10 Easy Tips For Creating An Indie Bedroom

1. Colour Scheme

Perhaps the best thing about an indie aesthetic is that it discriminates against no colours. In fact, bright and loud colours are quite preferable. Pale yellows, sunny oranges, and even pastel pinks are some preferred tones. For a moody and mysterious indie aesthetic, however, go for flat whites and subdued greys.

2. Over The Top Walls

No indie bedroom is complete without walls that demand a lot of attention. Consider investing in super cool psychedelic collage kits, old-school posters, newspaper cutouts, grainy polaroids, leafy vines, and more funky accents. While putting up these decorations on your wall, remember the cardinal rule of indie interiors: more is more. That’s right, these oddities will culminate in a proper reflection of you and your interests.

3. Layered Bedding

Layered bedding is another telltale sign of an authentic indie room. Combining different colours, textures, and patterns contributes to an eclectic atmosphere, evoking a sense of comfort and self-expression. Weighted blankets and plopped-up throw pillows are a great way to create a sense of fullness. It’s best to ditch the basic florals for this one. Instead, go for checkered patterns, geometric motifs, and…you guessed it…trippy colours.

4. Less Furniture Fuss

An indie aesthetic is the perfect way to slip one past as far as basic furniture is concerned. Thanks to the numerous eye-catching accents engulfing the room, using humble furniture will not take anything away from the visual interest of the room. This is perfect if you’re seeking a quick upgrade for your bedroom on a budget. In fact, rustic pallet beds, reclaimed wood shelves, and upcycled furniture are great choices for your indie bedroom.

5. Lighting Considerations

An indie bedroom thrives on a sense of intimacy and individuality, and lighting is one of the ways to achieve this. Whether you wrap warm string lights across leaf garlands or create soft pockets of light with some lanterns, an indie bedroom opens up a ton of possibilities in terms of lighting. If you are going for a funky look, you can try getting some fun star projectors.

6. Keep It Clutter-Free

We know what you might be thinking by now - indie equals hoarding. However, this is far from the truth. From weathered curios to funky new accents, with so many items flooding your room, it might get difficult to keep your space spick and span. To strike a sense of balance and tidy up your space, consider investing in some baskets, organizers, and wall shelves.

7. Art and Personal Mementos

To further enhance the eclectic and personal vibe of your space, consider modern wall art (especially mixed media pieces), vintage posters with old typography, concert posters, and cute Polaroid shots fastened to a clothesline.

8. Bring Some Natural Elements

A refreshing way to cut through the medley of items in your indie bedroom is to bring in a touch of greenery. Low-maintenance succulents are perfect if you are a new plant parent. Monstera, Fiddle-leaf fig, and Pothos are great for gracing dull corners.

9. Try A Little DIY

At the core of your indie bedroom lies innovation and creativity. The best way to do that and express yourself is to try some DIY. Handpainted art pieces, handmade macramé hangings and pen stands are creative outlets to better reflect your interests and individuality.

Light blues and soft pinks are perfect for creating a sense of serenity so you can drift right into sweet dreams after a taxing day.

4. Adorable Storage Solutions

For keeping your space spick and span, you don’t have to compromise on cuteness. Think irresistibly cute bunny storage baskets and waste bins. These whimsical additions will not only help keep your bedroom clutter-free but also contribute to a sense of endearment.

Scandinavian decor rests upon the principle of “Hygge,” which literally means “a cozy quality.” The entire hype around Scandinavian was fuelled by advocates of minimalism who resonate with simplicity and functionality. Trust us on this one, a Scandinavian bedroom is perfect for those needing a few extra moments in bed. So, let us help craft a bedroom that shrouds you in comfort and warmth.

10 Tips For  Creating a Scandinavian Bedroom

1. Fresh Clean Colours

Keep this bedroom look fresh and clean with a subdued colour palette. Clear whites, muted greys and cool-toned blues work best. You can also go for earthier hues like taupe and brown. The idea is to go for colours that evoke a sense of peace and calm, transforming your bedroom into a serene sanctuary that you’ll want to spend more time in.

2. Lowkey Furniture

Keep your Scandi bedroom bare and beautiful by investing in stripped-down low-profile furniture. Go for beds with simple frames, sleek floating shelves to make the most of vertical space, a small bedside table, and other practical installations.

3. Wall Treatment

Scandinavian doesn’t necessarily mean bland. To juxtapose the muted colour wash on your bedroom wall, you can opt for modern mixed-media art pieces. This will create quite a bit of visual interest and draw everyone’s attention. 

4. Comfy Bedding

The cornerstone of any Scandinavian bedroom is a cozy and comfortable bed that feels like a fluffy cloud against your skin. Layer your crisp white bed linens with soft blankets and plush throw pillows. Try alternating between colours like beige, taupe, and brown to create a look that really stands out.

5. No Clutter Zone

The hallmark of any Scandinavian bedroom is clean and open surroundings, which is why it’s best to tidy up your space with practical storage baskets and built-in shelving units.

6. Lighting

To create an ambience that is conducive to comfort and relaxation, lighting considerations play a major role in any good Scandinavian bedroom. Warm sconces or pendant lights and dimmable bedside lamps will go remarkably well in this heavenly retreat. It is also important to let in spurts of natural light to brighten up the room, which is why we recommend flowy sheer drapes.

7. Get In Touch With Nature

A strong connection to nature and sustainability lies at the heart of Scandinavian decor. Consider going for artisanal and sustainable home decor items such as wicker baskets, wall hangings, and other natural accents.

Create your very own comfortable nook by incorporating warm and intimate touches into your bedroom. From aromatic candles and potpourri to a comfortable divan basking in soft light, create the ultimate cozy lair.

9. Rugs

Dampen the commotion in your room with some colourful rugs. Whether you stick to the standard neutral colours or intriguing Nordic motifs, you can add plenty of warmth to your floors with some good-quality rugs.

10. Personal Touches

Finally, remember to make your bedroom uniquely YOURS. Keep your memories close by tucking them inside modern photo frames, maintain a flower vase if fresh blooms are your thing, and line up some shelves with your favourite trinkets and cherished keepsakes. These small additions will make you feel right at home.
