20 Beautiful Examples of Greek Bedroom Design

Greek Bedroom

When most people think of Greece, they think of open, airy, oceanic views with natural, earthy tones and influences. Greek decor is of the Mediterranean influence and has a lot of the vibes you get in the Mediterranean look, although, you might find more of the oceanic blues mixed in with the richer, earthy tones. Dark wrought iron, wood beams, painted tiles and other textures and an array of patterns, all make for a beautiful coastal look, and it’s one that works great in a bedroom. You can create a beautiful Greek style bedroom that is stylish and serene; one that will be your favorite place to retreat when you need a getaway from the cares and worries of the world and the day. Here are ways you can design your own beautiful Greek themed bedroom.

Neutral tones on the walls

Old world styles have a lot in common when it comes to color schemes. Greek themes are perfect decor themes if you love the idea of a dreamy bedroom with a soft color scheme, since Greek decor keeps with a neutral palette with influences of turquoise, deep blues and of course, lots of dreamy white. Neutral tones are commonly seen on plastered walls, but if you don’t already have those in your architectural design, your drywall walls will still work with anything from sandy hues to dreamy, stark whites. If working with a small bedroom, crisp, clean white walls help to enlarge the space and make the room instantly feel larger.

Think coastal for bedding

Bedding for your Greek themed room can be centered around coastal colors. With white walls, choose bedding that embraces everything you imagine about coastal life. Your bedding is the perfect place to include the coastal colors mentioned above. Varieties of blues; from turquoise to sky blue, deep or navy blue, and a pale azure, are all beautiful accent colors for your bedding, and the most commonly used accents colors in a Greek theme, according to Decoholic. Choose a textured comforter that is patterned with a combination of these colors, perhaps a simple white comforter with blue accent stripes or another simple design. Add throw pillows with secondary accent colors, such as hues of brown or golden yellow, then complete the bed ensemble by tossing a cozy throw at the foot of the bed.

Furniture choices

Furniture pieces are typically simple yet refined, and showcase subtle curves. Headboards often boast beautiful plush fabric in white, olive green, or choose a beautiful, sheer canopy for a very light, bright, coastal look. Although chunky, or larger furniture is acceptable in this design and can work for some bedrooms, Home Caprice suggests small to moderate sized furniture with light ornate decor features to keep the bedroom light and airy. Small rooms can keep things scaled to size by setting a small, vintage style side table next to the bed, and add a charming inverted ladder-shelf-unit casually leaning against the wall for books, photos and other decor. A small side sitting chair under a window adds charm and function to the room.

Lighting

Lighting is always an important factor in a bedroom. Of course you need your function light which for most rooms, is an overhead light. Instead of your basic overhead light, to keep all things cohesive in a Greek theme, opt for a small, elegant crystal chandelier to add a focal point to the room and a softer lighting touch. Wall sconces can replace side table lamps for a more romantic light experience, or delicate ornate lamp for a dresser. If your room has windows, let the natural light shine in. Home Caprice again suggests keeping in theme with the Greek lifestyle of light and airy, coastal living by using your natural light if you have it. Window treatments should also be light and sheer, not heavily draped.

Greek style is simple and refined and uses plenty of textured and patterned materials, and decorative motifs. There are many ways you can achieve the look of a Greek styled bedroom and it all has to do with your taste and style. You may choose to keep things very light, bright, airy and simplistic, or you may prefer a heavier, more ornate and rich toned theme for your Greek design. If you are in the market to remodel your bedroom and a Greek theme is what you like, then take a look at the following 20 beautiful examples of a Greek bedroom design and gain some inspiration.
