Getting Graphic in the Bedroom

Pop art influenced interior design of 1960’s bedrooms. Bold graphics and color were being printed on bedding for the first time. Solid pastel bedding gave way to an art movement; the canvas was our beds. Artist Vera Neumann, Graphic Designer Peter Max and Finnish company Marimekko brought bold textiles and graphic prints to American homes.

Getting graphic in the bedroom continues to be an easy way to completely change the look of your bedroom in a day. A new duvet cover along with a new set of pillowcases or shams is a cost effective way to get a new bedroom design fast.

Prints and bold visuals aren’t for everyone so make sure that you select images and colors that relate to the artist in you. Before introducing vivid color or high contrast prints take an honest look at your room to see if the existing color palette, finishes, furniture and art will coordinate with the new element. Getting graphic isn’t just for contemporary rooms. Adjust traditional rooms with large prints in softer colors or the use of small graphic patterns in bright colors.
