I tried to find out the perfect definition of an aesthetic bedroom. But happily, couldn’t find one. Happily- because that means there is no rule book for what is aesthetic besides the dictionary definition that ‘it looks pleasing to the eye.’
Now anything can look pleasing, right? When we are sad, a grunge room. And when we are happy, the preppy aesthetic. When we are reading dark literature, then dark academia, and when we want to party, the vibey neon room becomes our club! When the chilly winters irritate, then cabin and boho, and when we fall in love, the pink and kawaii rooms make the world feel like a happy place! It’s all about personal expression.
Long story short, anything can be aesthetic so long as you like it! So, just take a look at the 19 bedrooms below and the one you fall for is aesthetic. (All are aesthetic rooms anyway. So, don’t judge me.)
Use Bright Colors
Sometimes bright rooms are all you need to uplift a dull mood and feel like dancing again! And similar to this mustard and pink aesthetic bedroom, why not try bold bedroom color combinations that you love?
Throw in some metallic accents to make your bedroom decor even more chic and appealing and who knows your bedroom becomes the next design trendsetter on TikTok?
Never Forget The Funky Rugs
No matter how elegant and appealing your aesthetic room looks, if nothing ties it up together, it’s no use! A nice rug can help.
When you are decorating your bedroom in the summery aesthetics like a preppy room or the fun ones like the indie aesthetic, then rugs with animal prints are a no-brainer. But for more decent and thought-out interiors like the boho or Scandinavian aesthetics, don’t forget to add a Persian rug or a sheepskin one!
Some Abstract & Sleek Decor
You aren’t really leveling up in the modernity game if you aren’t using some abstract, sleek, and minimalist room decor in your aesthetic bedroom. They don’t take up a lot of space but are the perfect conversation starters! And to say the least, they alone can make any room gain an aesthetic look!
Pair it with a classy mirror and some neutral tones. Now you’re good to go.
Let The Colors Pop!
When having an aesthetic bedroom is all about a room that makes your heart beat faster with joy, then decorate it with all the colors you love- even if you love all the colors!
Go color crazy and use them on your bedding, the walls, the lighting, the wall decor, and every nook and cranny of your bedroom. It’s yours after all! So have fun.
Play Around With Shapes
When you know there is no rule book behind the aesthetic decor style, you know it’s time to have some fun with your bedroom decoration and bring in whatever makes you feel cheerful!
So why not try different furniture styles, shapes, and decor that actually says, ‘no rules!?’ So, just like this cute bedroom, use circles, rectangles, squares, and triangles in your aesthetic space and see the compliments roll in!
Don’t Miss The Candles
Whether you are decorating a dark academia bedroom or a bright boho, candles are the non-negotiables!
Exactly like this pretty bedroom, aesthetic lighting especially candles can add the perfect cozy shimmer that you’d ever dream of when you step into your intimate haven. Marry it with a few indoor plants here and there and you have an earthy retreat ready already!
For The Love Of Minimalism
If you love minimalism and that’s what gets your white eyes turning into red hearts, then this minimal beige room is for you!
Add neutral tones and decorate with minimum decor say the wall art you love and some indoor plants or faux vines to add a pop of color. And to keep over-simplicity away, you can try the half-shiplap wall shown above.
A Big Mirror. That’s It!
Mirrors say aesthetic more than anything else does! So, just adding one pretty mirror in your bedroom can do the job pretty well, if you aren’t looking for a full bedroom revamp.
By the way, it isn’t a bad idea to make your space monochrome like this hot terracotta bedroom that has a part of me already! Not yours?
Decorate With A Canopy
Almost nothing has ever reinforced the aestheticism in interiors more than the fairy lights and canopies above the beds have!
Bring the same fairy aesthetic flair to your own space by using the fairy lights on a canopy above your bed. Or take inspiration from the simple and modern bedroom above and highlight your headboard too. It’ll look pretty.
Texture. A Lot Of Texture.
Textures when opposed to plain designs can often feel more aesthetic and eye-catching. They make for a pretty good hack when you are looking to add an aesthetic flair to your space.
Just like this aesthetic and cozy boho bedroom, throw a lot of textures into your retreat like sheepskin pillows, braided throw blankets, pampas grass, wicker baskets, and pendant lights. And a lot of plants. Keep the color palette neutral and muted.
Plants Are Never Enough!
If a plant or two seems too little for you or that’s not eye-pleasing enough, then why stop yourself from creating a jungle in your aesthetic bedroom?
Take some inspo from this pretty biophilic aesthetic bedroom and use macrame planters to hang plants, keep some on stands and some on the floor (and some on the bed and nightstands if you still need more, lol!) Marry the greenery with earthy tones like mustard and brown and your earthy bedroom which is much more than just aesthetic, is ready!
Make Use Of Prints!
Aesthetic bedrooms usually have garden-inspired decor like vines, flowers, plants, etc. But there is no harm in going a step ahead and having modern nature-inspired wallpaper and printed bedding in your space for more aesthetic appeal.
Keep a wall or two plain to let the prints stand out or just couple the motifs with simple bedroom mirrors and plants to not overdo anything!
Rattan + Wood = Aesthetic!
If you love the scandi-boho bedroom style, you’ll know how aesthetic and hands-down beautiful such bedrooms are.
Inspired by the Scandinavian style, bring in muted neutral tones and earthy materials into your space, think rattan, wicker, wood, and plants. Let the boho invade with a braided throw blanket, pampas grass, and a thick textured rug. You’ll love it!
Nothing Like The Neon Signs!
Different kinds of statement lighting have now found their way up to be a synonym for aesthetic decor.
So, play safe and incorporate some custom neon LED lights in your bedroom whether you get your name, written there or just your favorite word from the dictionary! It only needs to feel your own- your own aesthetic. To create even more visual interest, geometric prints and headboards for your funky bedroom are the perfect additions.
Vines Are Vital!
Your aesthetic bedroom won’t look aesthetic without the vines.
So, just like this dark green bedroom, add the perfect aesthetic touches with a lot of faux vines on your walls besides textures and lighting that leaves no stone unturned to create the perfect aesthetic style.
Make It Festive With a Garland!
Garlands and wreaths aren’t just for Christmas. Make your room festive by decorating your headboard with a lovely garland, if you aren’t looking for a heavy-budget aesthetic room revamp!
Wrap some fairy lights around it so you feel like it’s Christmas every time you step into your haven! Even some snowy decor like this aesthetic bedroom idea above can help!
Get Creative With Your Headboard!
It’s natural to sometimes overlook the headboards when we are decorating an aesthetic bedroom. But they can really help uplift the vibe of the space much like this artistic headboard in this dark green bedroom does!
Try getting an intricate headboard for your otherwise minimalist bedroom and see beauty invade the place.
Floating Shelves Are Perfect!
When you wish to flaunt some artsy decor in your aesthetic bedroom, nothing can compete with the floating shelves, isn’t it?
Use sleek floating shelves above your headboard instead of wall art or mirror and decorate it with some nostalgic photo frames and some little potted plants. You can also consider some cute lighting to top off your aesthetic decorating!
Make A Gallery Wall
Aesthetic spaces are usually related to nostalgia and personality. Add a touch of personal expression and taste to your bedroom by curating a gallery wall or a pinboard that just makes you feel, ‘this bedroom is mine!’
Bring in some more flavor by wrapping some fairy lights around the photos to make your aesthetic decor much more special and eye-catching.
Types of aesthetic interior styles
There are a lot of aesthetic styles that have found their way up to the trending interior styles. Some because they are seriously pretty and calming and some, thanks to TikTok! Here’s the list of the main ones:
- Japandi Aesthetic: The Japandi style is a mix of Japanese groundedness and Scandinavian minimalism and simplicity. Earthy colors and low, minimal furnishings are what mark it.
- Scandinavian Aesthetic: Scandinavian style is popular because of its natural simplicity, neutral tones, and minimal and natural decor. It is very whitish owing to its origination in the nordic lands.
- Boho Aesthetic: The boho aesthetic is a maximalist design popular because of its textured and ‘more is more’ approach to design. It features earthy tones like browns and beiges but doesn’t restrict the color palette to them.
- Minimalist Aesthetic: As the name suggests, this style is brutally against maximalism and thus the slogan, ‘less is more.’ You don’t add what you love to your decor. You only add what you need, in the most simplistic manner possible. It usually promotes neutral tones.
- Kawaii Aesthetic: Kawaii means ‘cute.’ This design style features all cute things like plushies, flowers, clouds, etc in a pastel color palette.
- Grunge Aesthetic: Grunge aesthetic is a dark decor style that has escapism at its heart. It thus features blacks and grays as the color scheme besides the rock band posters and literature as decor as the means to escape from the negativity of society.
- Indie Aesthetic: Indie stands for ‘independence.’ So, everything that goes into an indie room has its independent beauty and identity. It has nothing to do with the other stuff in the space. So, it has freedom at its core and no special color palette.
- Coquette Aesthetic: The coquette aesthetic is a very pinkish and girlish undertone. It originated from Tik Tok and means ‘the girl who flirts.’ It’s simple to mark since it’s just too pink and hyper-feminine.
- Farmhouse Aesthetic: The farmhouse style features simple, airy designs like shiplap walls, open shelving, and buffalo-plaid prints. It has a very cool color palette like blue and white with a trace of red sometimes. It is relaxation and leisure time that goes behind it.
- Coastal Aesthetic: Inspired by the beach, the coastal aesthetic features beachy colors and materials like whites, blues, browns and shells, rattan, and wicker.
- Mid-century Modern Aesthetic: As the name suggests, this aesthetic has its roots in the mid-century with a modern flair to it. Think vintage and rustic wooden furniture with some modern and organized decor around it.
- Preppy Aesthetic: Preppy is a very summery and springy aesthetic that features pastel and vibrant colors. It looks very organized and sophisticated, besides the common animal and floral motifs in such spaces.
- Dark academia Aesthetic: A room that looks like it belongs to serious and strict professors, this is perfect if you love dark literature. It features a dark color palette, candles, skulls, and vintage furniture as its main elements.
- Cabincore Aesthetic: The cabin core aesthetic imitates the look of cabins situated in the middle of a dense forest. This means, there are a lot of nature-inspired materials, wood, plants, and sunlight.
- Cottagecore Aesthetic: Inspired by small European countryside cottages, this style celebrates rural living. It often features a neutral color palette, minimalism, and victorian textures and architecture.
- Eclectric Aesthetic: Just another, ‘more is more,’ aesthetic that tears the design rule book and gives you the liberty to decorate with anything and everything you want!
- Fairycore Aesthetic: This aesthetic is based on magical woodland fairy detailing. You often find the forest-y feels in such spaces with a lot of magical fairy lighting.
- Witchcore Aesthetic: As the name naturally tells you, the witchcore aesthetic keeps the witches at the center. It has a dark color palette and features a lot of crystals, potions, natural-material as decor and accessories.
- Goblincore Aesthetic: This aesthetic celebrates the less pretty parts of nature like soil, insects, dark colors, and animals.
- Arts And Crafts Aesthetic: The arts and crafts aesthetic magnifies the rawness and innate natural beauty in everything, without going through any processes and conditioning. Thus, all-natural materials and nature-inspired art are without any special processing.
- Craftsman Aesthetic: This aesthetic also features natural materials but it involves some processing and conditioning to make them add to the warmth and coziness of interiors that it promotes.
- Cluttercore Aesthetic: Cluttercore is much similar to the electric or maximalist style. But it only promotes all the things that evoke nostalgia in you. The organization is also a factor.
- Baddie Aesthetic: A clubby aesthetic for the baddies out there. This features neon lighting, disco balls, and a full party vibe at home, and oftentimes custom neon signs with not-so-pleasing words as decor.
