After a long stressful day at work what else could be more comforting than to relax in a bedroom that makes you feel as if you just have entered into a green garden with a bed. For anyone who likes to be in touch of a little green, a cottage-style, garden themed bedroom would just be perfect. With a bit of imagination, you can easily transform your bedroom into a little garden of Eden of your dreams. Here goes top garden bedroom ideas.
1. Flowery Designs
Is there anyone who doesn’t like flowers? A slightly highlighted bedroom wall with some patterns like flowers and leaves on it would be great, wouldn’t it? You can add some other floral items, too. But, don’t forget to put a clear crystal vase with fresh cut flowers on the ceramic table. Use bed covers and pillow covers of greenish shade, with some prints on it that would match the flowery patterns of the wall.
2. Dark and light shades
Choose from shades of green to color the walls of your bedroom, it gives the room a calm effect. You can also color it in a chair rail fashion with two or more different shades, but always use a combination of dark and light shades, as the combination of two dark shades or two light shades doesn’t look good on walls. Use some patches of pink or purple simply to enhance the brightness of the green. If you want the illusion of sky, simply paint the ceiling blue.
3. Beautiful Wrought Iron Wall Decor
A wrought iron wall decor in a floral design would certainly be a very charming touch. The simpleness of wrought iron products are exceptional, but keep them on their natural color. Colored wrought iron products look very odd as the simplicity is totally lost that way. But be careful, do not use too much of wrought iron to decorate your bedroom, keep as less as possible as an overstaffed room never looks good.
4. String Lights
Imagine strings of twinkling lights hanging in various places all over the room. Use it on tops of picket fences, windows, or the shelves on the walls. The dim light will make a fairy-like atmosphere in the garden room. The twinkling lights make the room look like a decorated garden on New Year’s eve and it produces such a warm feeling. But do not use too harsh light, use only dim light that smooths the eyes. Don’t use string lights for a long period of time, this decoration for your garden room is only for occasional use.
5. Bringing in Outdoor Decor
You could just bring your favorite outdoor piece inside your room, if you like it enough. Outdoor items really look quite outstanding when kept indoor; for a garden themed bedroom, an outdoor item is a must. It could be a small tree in a tub (placed beside your window), or a garden chair, or may be something else. Don’t take an outdoor item, which doesn’t match the color contrast of your bedroom.
6. Decorating with a Fountain
For a garden themed bedroom, a fountain would just be a classic item. Decorate the area where you keep the fountain with polished stones, marbles, or quartz chips. Keep it in a sunny corner of your bedroom so that you can keep some live houseplants beside it too to make it look unique as well as beautiful. The watery sounds inside your bedroom makes a wonderful environment. The houseplants also give the room a lively look.
7. Fragrant Windowsill Herbs
On the bedroom windowsill, you can grow some fresh rosemary, cilantro, basil, or mint to add a splash of natural color and brightness to the room. Fresh colors give the room a very quiet and peaceful effect. Try to grow different colored leaves and fruits so that the windowsill itself looks like a corner in the garden. Just make sure you use leak-proof pots and tubs to grow the greenery. These herbs would also make the room smell fresh.
Use an accent floor rug of floral design, but always match the color of the rug with the color of the walls. You can use it for the whole floor or for some portion of it. It is best if the rug is in a shade of deep green, which gives it a very grasslike look that would be just fine for the garden themed bedroom.
9. Picket Fence
Picket fences are great to decorate your room in a garden like fashion. First color it white, then put it as a headboard for the bed or may be as an embellishment along one wall. Add some stencil butterflies over it for an extra nice effect. Don’t color the picket fences in any other shades, as normally in gardens white picket fences are used. It gives the room a natural look.
10. Window Coverings
Use light and airy window coverings that give the room a garden like open and inviting look. Be sure the coverings match the whole color contrast of the room and it would be even better if the coverings have floral designs on it. Best is to use any shade of green for the window coverings, but if you have a blue-colored sky like ceiling in your bedroom, then you can also choose some shade of blue for window coverings.
