1. Contemporary Bedroom In Earth Tones

Earth tones are more relaxed and simpler

For colors, one can usually find contemporary bedrooms in earth tones. Earth tones are more relaxed and simpler. Go for natural wooden colored bed frames and bedside tables. White sheets and fabrics also keep up with the simple and minimalist look. Add other colored fixtures like a green potted plant to break the monotone.

You can still go for elegance and simplicity in a contemporary bedroom. Instead of warm earth tones go for darker colors like black or gray in your furniture pieces. You can have a black headboard paired up with a white or cream sheeted bed. Bedside tables can also come in the dark colors that are more or less the same with the headboard color.

3. Contemporary Bedroom With The Wooden Bed
