For any nature lover out there, creating a decor inspired by these forest bedroom ideas is the ultimate way of getting closer to the outdoors. Although I’m happy to live in a house, there’s certainly a part of me that dreams about calling an enchanted forest my home. Realistically this fantasy isn’t so feasible, yet it doesn’t mean that I cant incorporate some of the wonder into my bedroom decor.
From wall murals to lifesize trees, furniture shaped like branches, and more, there are countless ways to bring aspects of the forest into your bedroom. Some require more effort and are ideal if you plan to design your interior around the theme, while others are simpler and can easily be installed when you need some inspiration from nature in your bedroom.
Forest Bedroom Styles
For a magical fairytale forest decor, think about focusing your entire bedroom theme around the style. Wooden walls with details that mimic a log cabin like the picture above are a nice touch. Think of decorating with green and brown neutral colors, and adding charming details such as paintings of leaves or trees on the walls or ceilings. See more on Decoist.
Chic and Elegant
Forest bedrooms don’t have to be over the top with decorations. A simple style like the tree branch bed frame above is a chic idea to include some nature into your design. I love the pale neutral hues used in this bedroom decor, keeping the look subtle and elegant for a classic design that will last the test of time. Aside from realistic tree branches, a similar bed frame made from iron would undoubtedly look just as elegant. Contact the designer here.
Forest Wall Art Ideas
I love this simple and stylish framed wall hanging displaying branches. The contrast of the rustic natural details with the silver frame is striking.

I love the natural feeling in this bedroom thanks to the hanging vines decorating the space. If you like your forest decor to be a little more realistic, this is definitely a great idea to pursue. For minimal upkeep opt for artificial vines, but if you have a green thumb you can definitely go for the real deal.
If you’re not quite ready to have ivy vines covering a wall, choose a simple strand such as the one above. Even better, some vines are paired with a string of lights making them decorative and functional. Ivy lights are my favorite idea for introducing an ethereal glow to a bedroom.

This is such a cute carpet, imitating a moss floor with decorative mushrooms. As long as you have enough space and won’t be tripping over the mushrooms, this design is a great choice.

The added vines aren’t necessary but they certainly add plenty of charm to the look.
If you’ve got a studio space or a large bedroom with different areas, this wall divider idea is definitely one of my favorites.

This tree trunk bookshelf is such a charming piece of furniture. I love the way that it fits into the corner as an aesthetic design that is also entirely functional. Incorporating a forest theme into furniture that is regularly made with wood is a great way to become inspired to pursue the style further throughout your room.
