Creating a sophisticated, masculine bedroom

When you think masculine and sophisticated you think dark colours. But this is where you have to be careful. You do not want to make your bedroom too dark as you still want it to be warm and inviting. This is why a feature wall is great. It shows that you have put thought into the room without making it too overwhelming or dark. By having all the other walls in a lighter coloured paint it allows the feature wall to stand out and bring that masculinity to the room.

If you keep the surrounding walls light and add touches of warm wood into the room throughout the furniture it will lift the room up well still keeping the sophisticated look you want. You can then go for a middle ground with the bedspread by adding element of the darker colour in the feature wallpaper along with elements of lighter colours coming from the furniture. This will bring the room altogether to create a sophisticated cool, masculine bedroom.

Make a statement with dark wallpaper!

Add a dark wallpaper into an area of the house that you would tend to just walk by. Why? Because adding such statement pieces in a smaller area, turns the room from drab and boring to a truly magnificent space. By using darker wallpaper it adds a luxury element to the room because the dark colours create a moody cosy atmosphere.

Picking a smaller area such as a washroom or powder room allows your inner interior design to come out. Because it is a space that is otherwise forgotten about it allows you to be more creative with it as no one has an expectation on what the interiors should look like.

If you do not want your room to become too dark you can add some contrast to the room by incorporating lighter tones throughout the flooring, finishing and fixtures. Let your inner interior designer daredevil come out and go for a darker bolder wallpaper. It will work in your favour.
