The Bold Neutral Look of Black and White Bedrooms

When some people hear the word “neutral” in relation to decorating, they often think this means a color palette that is bland and dull. Neutrals can be anything but when done correctly, but a surefire way to capture a bold, chic look is to go with a neutral pairing that is often forgotten even falls into this category: black and white.

The stark contrast of black and white instantly offers the opportunity for a dramatic look. You never have to worry about it going out of style, as its as timeless as they come, and it can suit a variety of different tastes. I especially love black and white bedrooms. There is an innate luxury to this combo that works wonderfully in this space. It can be as relaxed or glamorous as you’d like.

Here are ten examples of fabulous black and white bedrooms.

How to Easily Create 5 Popular Bedroom Styles

Decorating a bedroom offers a great opportunity: If you want, you can divert completely away from the design style of the rest of your home and do something totally unique. Say you have a traditional-style home but you’ve always dreamed of a beach chic getaway – you can have it without feeling like you’re breaking any “design laws.” However, the easy part is choosing the style. Things can get tricky once it comes to bringing that style to life. It’s not as hard as you may think, though. Once you understand the key features of each design style, you will realize just how simple it can be to decorate a space in the style of your choosing, not to mention how affordable they can be too! With stores such as Target and HomeGoods offering great deals on accessories and furniture, decorating a bedroom (as well as other areas of your home) at an affordable cost is not a crazy concept. If you’re willing to do a little DIY, too, then you’re definitely on your way to a beautiful new home.

Here are 5 popular bedroom styles and how you can achieve each one…
