Guys, Here's Your Ultimate Bedding Cheat Sheet
Figuring out the perfect color combination for a masculine bedroom design isn't always as easy as it seems. There tend to be fewer choices, both with pattern and color, and even materials can be a bit confusing. (Linen? Flannel? Sateen?!)
To help, we've put together a quick cheat sheet to make sure that your bachelor bedroom always looks on point.
With the right color combination, even a color that is traditionally not a no-go when thinking about dude design can look chic and fresh. Enter this purple bedroom. Pairing a cool-toned gray with purple is the perfect way to balance them both.
Gray is a particularly great choice when you don't quite want to dive into a dark palette but know that you want something other than white. This hue allows you to add flavor to the room but in a subtle and more understated way.
You really can't go wrong with choosing crisp, white linens for your space. And the great thing about white is that it truly goes with any and every color scheme and style. White is also a super flexible choice because you can keep a variety of blankets or throws in other colors that can be easily switched in whenever you'd like to change up the look.
To add a bit of extra spice, you can also try to find some white sheets that have other accent colors or a bold band.
Going with a dark-toned sheet set or blanket can bring a lot of warmth and coziness to your space. Dark shades of brown, blue, green and even black work very well in a more masculine space. Try pairing two dark colors together for even greater impact, such as brown and black or black and green. Dark colors also work well with gray palettes.
Using pattern can have a big impact within your bedroom. The key to using patterns in a smart and sophisticated way is to balance it with a hefty dose of white or other neutral colors. The bright blue walls and white accents are a beautiful complement to the organically-striped bedding. Tip: If you choose a patterned sheet set, pair it with a solid blanket or duvet and vice versa.
