Gilded Mirror Accent
For a classy bedroom interior, you can incorporate luxurious finishing materials, such as marble. Here, the feature wall behind the bed is adorned with a large slab of gray-veined, white marble.
A vintage accent has been added to the room in the form of a gilded Victorian mirror, leaned against the adjacent wall. The presence of the mirror helps the bedroom to appear more expansive, and adds a sense of depth.
In my recommendation, keep the color palette fresh and bright. In the sample image, you can see that the visible colors are deep blue, and forest green.
These are accented by a hint of salmon pink. The gold accents of the mirror frame complement the color scheme well.
A simple and cost-effective way of incorporating a touch of gold into your interior space is by applying a white and gold wallpaper.
I would advise that the wallpaper is limited to one focal wall only, and the rest of the walls of the room are left plain, to avoid crowding the room with too much pattern.
In the sample interior, you can see how even with the otherwise plain wooden furniture, and simple finishes, the wallpaper adds a certain opulence to the overall aesthetic of the room.
Wallpapering a single wall will highlight it as the focal feature of your space. This provides a direction for subsequent additions and you can arrange your remaining furniture according to the hierarchy that has been defined.
Feature Wall With Gold Accents
To add a touch of classic charm, and modern elegance to your bedroom interior, you can build a feature wall using marble slabs. The marble can be arranged into asymmetric shapes, each one bordered by gold, metallic strips.
The opulence of the gold strips paired with the white marble lends a touch of sophistication, while their layout of straight, angular shapes create a modern look.
The bulk of the visual attention in the room will be directed towards the feature wall, so it is best to avoid any bold colors that compete for focus.
I recommend keeping the color palette of the space restricted to a range of neutrals. Here, we can see the color palette of the linens ranges from gray to white, while the wooden finish of the furniture adds a slight touch of warmth.
A non-invasive way of incorporating gold into your space is by arranging wall art in metallic touches of gold. This is the easiest possible solution, as it doesn’t require any kind of demolition or construction to take place.
In the sample image, you can see the large, bold metallic relief that has been affixed above the bed. A metallic finish is sure to catch whatever amount of light enters a space, whether natural or artificial.
Textured metallic finishes also tend to reflect light in different directions instead of presenting a flat glossy surface, which adds an interesting play of light to an interior space.
To further highlight the art you choose to display, I recommend placing a spotlight above it, to focus the light towards it. This will make it a visual attention-grabber at all times.
Carved, Gilded Furniture
An overly ornate white and gold palette, when incorporated into the bedroom furniture itself, can come across as tacky.
To avoid this, you can opt for a chalky, white-gold deco paint finish for your bedroom furniture. Such a finish has a slight sheen that reflects light in a subtle manner.
This is a great technique to apply to furniture with a vintage aesthetic. To build upon the vintage theme, the paint can be slightly distressed using sandpaper, to achieve a time-worn look. Such a patina, that would otherwise come only with age and use, has its own charm to lend to a space.
As an added luxury, you can introduce a Persian area rug to complement the vintage furniture.
I also recommend keeping the curtains in a plain, sheer fabric, allowing diffused natural light to filter into your space. The light will highlight the gold in the furniture-finish and help it stand out.
A statement chandelier or light fixture in a gold finish is an easy way to add a touch of gold into your space. You can choose the light of the bulbs to be either warm white, for a warm, cozy interior, or cool white for a lower visual temperature.
In the sample interior displayed above, the light fixture is a relatively modern one, with simple and straight lines, topped with glowing orbs of lights giving off a soft light instead of a sharp one.
The harshness of the angular arrangement of gold metallic rods is balanced by the contrasting softness of the diffused light emanating from the globes.
To help the ceiling light stand out, one wall surface has been provided a darker wooden finish as compared to the otherwise stark white interior. The metallic gold and the lit-up globes will be highlighted against the wooden paneling of the feature wall.
String Light Accents
An unconventional, yet interesting way of introducing gold into your bedroom interior, is by using golden hued string lights. Strands of tiny bulbs can be arranged in whatever configuration you select, and arrayed together they become a source of soft, golden light, diffusing throughout your space.
In the sample interior I have created as an example, the string lights have been arranged into a canopy suspended along the ceiling in a random, crisscrossing pattern. The lack of structure in the arrangement of the pattern gives the canopy its own specific charm, and lends and air of informality to the space. This technique is ideal for a teenager’s bedrooms.
String lights are a relatively cost-effective item, and can be obtained from any décor store easily.
They are simple to arrange and, if they ever need to replaced, that can be done without any large financial demands. As far as décor solutions go, it has great value for money.
Gold Bed Frame
Wrought iron bed frames add a delicacy and elegance to your interior. By painting the bed frame gold, the resulting outcome is a lightweight, ethereal looking furniture set. By keeping the bed linens and accent cushions restricted to a white, the elegance of the overall effect is magnified.
In the sample interior, the floor has been finished in slabs of white marble, veined with gold. A highly glossy material, marble will reflect whatever is placed upon it, and the resulting effect is of a space that appears more expansive, almost like it is extending into infinity.
To maintain the classy elegance of the interior, any additional décor can be maintained in a monochrome palette of black and white. For instance, in the sample image, the framed art on the walls behind the bed are black and white prints in simple, minimalistic black frames.
