100+ Hipster Bedroom Ideas

hipster bedroom ideas

You hear it on your radio stations, on television, and see it on social media from your friends. What does having a hipster style mean? It can be misleading as when we think of hipster we only think of one way, which is the style we’ve seen in the 70s.

Hipsters have a style that is considered urban, creative, and of their own, that stands out. Hipsters love to express their personalities through their design and love of art. If you want your bedroom to have a hipster style, you can add touches that are hippy-like.

Ideas For a Cool Space

  1. Make a study room – If you want to lean towards making a study room, you can use industrial art pieces and artwork that show emotions. Use colors that are earthy and feel relaxing.
  2. Neutral and functional – Pick a neutral style that is both aesthetically pleasing and comfortable. You can design coffee tables that are minimal or tables made out of wood, and wicker baskets to store items.
  3. For the book lover – If you’re really into literature, mix and match your book selection by incorporating vintage decorative items. This would look great against a brick accent wall.
  4. Pick a corner – Pick a corner in your bedroom to design a personal theme. You can make a corner that focuses on music, journaling, or art. Use decorative items and pillows to make this a comfortable place you can escape to.
  5. Corner for beauty – You can create a corner for beauty that gives you space to get ready in the morning. Include a hipster vanity from a thrift shop or one that you designed. Pick a neutral desk, add florals if they don’t already have it, and a retro-styled mirror.

Remember, when wanting to achieve a hipster look, it may range from having photographs and posters on your wall to a more industrial modern-styled look. Achieving a hipster look is all about expressing your personality. There is no right or wrong to do this. These photos are great for giving inspiration, decorative ideas, and color schemes, but it’s also important that you include the things in life that you love. Create a bedroom that is comfortable for getting a good night’s sleep, and a room where you can escape after a stressful day. I hope this list gives you plenty of inspirational ideas to get started on your dream hipster bedroom.
