I get dozens of comments asking me about how to paint and decorate a modern bedroom.
This is a very complicated question to answer without knowing the tastes of the inhabitant of said bedroom, without seeing the bedroom itself and without knowing any other details.
But if they forced me to answer even without knowing the preferences in terms of color, furniture, textiles, I would say a color palette that is always current and does not go out of style: Black and white.
Naturally, it is not only the color palette, it is much more, but it is a good start, a good base to create a modern bedroom.
With that said, join me as we are going to check out some modern black white bedrooms so you can get inspired.
I am commenting on them to help you get ideas.

In black and white, from the fantastic textiles that dress the bed, to the walls painted in white combined with black on the headboard.
If this palette is too cold for you, you can always add warm elements such as wood, vegetable fibers or plants in the bedroom to add the warmth you need.

Another way to paint a black and white bedroom is the one we see above. The walls are painted almost to the ceiling, leaving a white plinth just like the ceiling itself and creating an interesting decorative effect in the bedroom.
In this other black and white bedroom, gray has also been added as an intermediary, since the palette of all black and white has a lot of contrast, and it does not hurt to soften it by adding another intermediate color.

All neutral, dominating the gray of the textured wallpaper with great accents of black and white, creating a very elegant and modern bedroom. A bedroom that does not go out of style.

It is not exactly black, but a very dark anthracite gray, combined with white on walls and matching textiles.
Everything in white, even the furniture, except one wall, the one with the headboard, which is usually the most appropriate, painted black.
This bedroom has a gray base, a very soft gray, but as an accent, as a contrast, black and white elements have been added on the gray background, and, although it is a bit cold, it is a modern bedroom with a lot of class.

Everything in black, except for the bed with white textiles, creating a palette of black and white with a large dose of yellow in the beautiful headboard.

If pure black seems too intense, too deep, try less intense blacks, which are also elegant and do not absorb as much light.
The whole set of Maisons du Monde
In this Maisons du Monde set we see how all the walls have been painted black, leaving the floor in light wood and the bed textiles predominantly white.

Although there is blackboard or chalk paint in many colors, without a doubt blackboard paint is the most authentic and the one that can help you paint your bedroom in black, creating a very interesting accent wall, as we see in the IKEA styling set above these lines.

In this case, a black frame has been painted on the wall of the headboard delimited by white moldings, which gives the bedroom a more elegant touch. The rest, as you can see, all blank.

One of the colors that best combine with black is pink. A rather difficult color to apply indoors, and I’ll tell you why another day.
That said and looking at the black and white bedroom above these lines, you can create the black and white palette, and then add a pink hue that looks fantastic.

The black and white palette is extremely easy to combine. It never fails. But if you want to play it safe, add white as a background and then accents of black.

It is not my favorite, because it reminds me of the stripes on the rugby or football referees’ jersey but I know that many people like stripes to decorate their walls. If you too, here is another idea to add black and white to your bedroom.
As I said at the beginning, they are two colors suitable for creating a contemporary and timeless color palette that will not go out of style, since it is above them. But a modern bedroom can be achieved with any other color.
