Neutral and White: Casual Bedrooms

I have a problem. I don’t really know what my style is? I like most every style. I guess the trick is just finding the look that feels right for the space. I am torn from going modern and Swedish for the house or choose more formal pieces mixed with modern pieces for a English bohemian look. I guess I can do both.

Here are some neutral bedrooms that feel more modern then anything. The light colors feel really relaxing and easy to live with. But the question of the day,” Is it to blah”? Will I get bored? I suppose I don’t like rooms that feel half ass and non-committal. I just need to be decisive and go for it. Check out some of my inspiration above and below.

I like the traditional headboards mix into a casual environment.
