1. Contemporary Neutral Bedroom Mixed Gold Details
This modern-looking bedroom relies heavily on the color beige to give it an open and airy look. Start with a herringbone wood floor in the master bedroom as it can be such a focal point, even if it is slightly covered up by an area rug.
A brass abstract light fixture over the bed can be a nice contrast to the herringbone floor. If you have high ceilings, then high curtains can also help pull this look together.
2. Mirror Shelves
If you have a small bedroom or in an apartment, you can pull together this neutral industrial city bedroom. A focal point of this room is the mirrored shelves.
They are a perfect place to display photo plaques, awards, and any other personal memorabilia. The setup of this bedroom is super cozy because of the light colors that are reflected from the bedside windows.
This design aesthetic can be great for couples or for a teenager looking to freshen up their space.

3. Minimalist Neutral Bedroom Style
White and black can be a really stark contrast color combination. If you want something a little bit more muted and streamlined, beige and black can be a great way to go.
Because black can be overpowering, using it sparingly can help take away some of its heaviness. Ways to incorporate black can be through simple shelves and framed images.
Also, incorporate the beige through the bedding, the pillows, or even the wall color. Your end result is a light and airy look with sprinkles of sharp sophistication through the black.

4. Discreet Storing and Displaying Functions
A hidden storage compartment in the wall can make for a really discreet yet decorative method for putting away your items. If you have built-in shelves in your wall, whether it be big or small, display your accessories so that they also serve as design elements.
You can also mix in plants growing in cute mugs or small succulents to store on the shelves too. If you have space, you can even put up artwork too.

5. Neutral Bedroom Ideas with Dark Furniture
Dark furniture can work really well in a baby’s room because it helps certain items stand out more than others. For older individuals, an iron bed is a great way to bring dark furniture into the room.
If you have teenage boys, then a black bed frame might be a better way to go. Therefore, allow the furniture to be the only dark element and help brighten it up by using light-colored bedding.

Industrial themed bedrooms can be hard to put together but one of the best rules to follow is sticking with one color. A great color to use in an industrial-themed bedroom is yellow.
Using accents in your chairs, posters, or even a bicycle that you store in your apartment can help create a really dynamic environment in what is often a chaotic setting.
