Sprucing up your bedroom with new furniture and colors is all well and good, but the biggest style gains come from patterns in wallpaper, murals, artwork, and soft furnishings to set the stage for your interior style.

Patterns can add depth and intrigue to your bedroom, infusing the space with energy and personality and keeping it from feeling flat or boring. However, you’ve chosen your color palette and patterns to match, so which bed will help complement the decor scheme?

Pattern Trends in the Bedroom

Here are some of our favorites in 2024:

1. Animal Prints

Animal prints like leopard, cheetah, and zebra patterns work beautifully on everything from throw pillows to area rugs. Try a leopard print duvet cover in soft grey and white tones for a subtle approach or go bold with a statement-making cheetah print accent wall.

Bed frames that work well with animal prints include white and cream numbers like the Bedmr Chester (pictured above) and Birlea Jessica. Remember, a little goes a long way with animal prints, so always use them sparingly for maximum impact in your bedroom.

2. Art Deco

Bring the glitz and glamour of the Roaring Twenties into your bedroom with Art Deco-inspired patterns with geometric shapes, metallic finishes, and rich jewel tones.

Industrial-style bed frames like the Flintshire Axton and traditional ones like the Birlea Atlas are perfect for Art Deco bedrooms.

Look for bedding and curtains with geometric fan or sunburst patterns in shades of gold, silver, and black, or a combination of all three. Add a few deco-patterned throw pillows in emerald green or sapphire blue for a luxe pop of color with an antique mirrored dresser or side table to complete the look.

3. Florals and Botanicals

Nature-inspired patterns are a timeless bedroom choice, lending a soft, romantic vibe – think ditsy micro-florals and bold, oversized blooms.

Vintage bed types work beautifully with this bedroom interior style. The neutral and often muted tones of metal bed frames provide a versatile backdrop that enhances the vibrant colors and patterns of floral and nature-inspired themes without overwhelming the space.

If florals feel too feminine for your taste, try a tropical leaf print or a whimsical feather pattern instead, and mix and match patterns in complementary colors for a lush, layered look. Add a few potted plants or a vase of fresh flowers to tie the theme together.

4. Moroccan and Ikat

Moroccan and ikat patterns are perfect for creating a cozy, boho bedroom vibe. These global-inspired prints have traditional geometric designs in warm, earthy colors like terracotta, sand, and indigo.

Hang a set of ikat print curtains to add instant pattern and texture to your windows and layer a Moroccan blanket or a kilim-patterned throw at the foot of your bed for an eclectic touch.

Complete the look with a woven rattan headboard like on the Willis Gambier Ivory, a jute rug, and a few Moroccan lanterns and metallic candleholders for ambiance.

5. Nautical

Nautical patterns, such as stripes, anchors, and sailboats, are classic choices for bedrooms, evoking a sense of calm and relaxation. Stick to a crisp, clean palette of navy blue, white, and red for a traditional nautical look, and dress your bed in a blue and white striped duvet cover.

Hang a gallery wall of framed nautical flags or vintage sailing maps with a jute rug and a few rope-wrapped accents for a natural texture.

Bed frames with a weathered or distressed finish mimic the look of driftwood and add an authentic, rustic touch to a nautical-themed bedroom. This type of bed frame brings in the natural elements of the beach and sea.

6. Nursery and Kids Room Patterns

Playful patterns like polka dots, stars, rainbows, hearts, and bunnies are always a hit in nurseries because they are sweet and whimsical, sparking your little one’s imagination and creating a fun, inviting space.

Mix and match a few different patterns in a soft, soothing color palette, such as baby blue, blush pink, mint green, or pale yellow. Add a patterned teepee or canopy for a cozy reading nook, get playful with curtains, and add a few stuffed animal friends to snuggle up with.

Whether you love Art Deco’s timelessness, bold animal prints, romantic florals, or geometric wonders, there’s a pattern to suit your tastes.

You can mix and match patterns in a coordinated color palette and use pops of color to create focal points. For example, keeping the room neutral and adding pops of green and blue can create a calming environment, or painting a feature wall behind the bedroom in a bold rust color can create a boho vibe.

By choosing a bed frame that incorporates these elements, you can create a cohesive and charming bedroom that feels both stylish and serene.
