Modern Bedroom Design Tips
There are many types of concepts and techniques within the Modern style that are used by designers, decorators, and architects. As an interior architect and designer, I define the modern style as the foundations invented by the fore-fathers of modernism, such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Walter Gropius, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and Le Corbusier, who used function, clean lines and shapes, as well as architectural and natural elements for decoration. These modernists believed a home should be... functional and everything within the home should have a purpose, including decoration, as best described by Le Corbuser, “House is a machine for living.” Here are some examples of these concepts that will help you design your modern bedroom.Continue to 2 of 10 below.

Use Color as a Focal Point
Color is vital when decorating your bedroom or any room in your home. Choosing the right color can be cumbersome and intimidating, especially if you have to live with the color for a while. In modern bedrooms any color, hue, or shade can be used, whether you decide to incorporate pastels, bright, or neutral colors, try to be selective where you place your color selections. For example, this modern bedroom uses a monochromatic color scheme within the furniture and bedding as its main decoration.Continue to 10 of 10 below.

Don't Forget to Design a Soothing Bedroom
Sometimes modern bedrooms can seem too cold or uncomfortable, which is why some folks do not like this style. When designing your bedroom try to incorporate elements that will help promote better sleep and comfort, such as soft lighting, plush bedding, and a comfortable mattress. This bedroom is a perfect example of using light fixtures, an area rug, window treatments, and bedding to soften up this modern room.
