“Contemporary style” may sound old, cold and sterile – but with the addition of the right elements, the look can be incredibly warm and inviting.
At its essence, a contemporary style bedroom is clutter-free, functional – and up-to-date with the latest styles.
The look should reflect what’s currently in vogue… while perhaps trying to predict the future.
Think: a simple clutter-free space, a shaggy area rug, concrete floor, vibrant colors, soft textures, modern furniture pieces, and warm wood furnishing.
TIP: avoid the cold gray-and-white minimalist trend of the past few years.
Today’s leading styles incorporate more colors, textures and patterns.
Here are ten gorgeous contemporary bedroom decor ideas to help you find inspiring ways to put a modern twist on your bedroom.
1. Minimalistic Design

Like this elegant design space with a gray upholstered bed, white and grey pillows and a black decorative blanket.
