Bring meaning to each piece you incorporate into a Zen genre bedroom.
Doing so adds to the meaning and value of your decorating scheme.
Use wall art with bamboo design frames and/or use a grass weave for an interesting mat around the print.
A wicker night stand is an ideal option in your Zen bedroom.
This joyful bedding set is, indeed very Zen~like. The three stacked stones have been mentioned as being symbolic of the Buddha triad: Shaka, Yakushi and Amida positioned in meditation.
Bring the balance of nature into your space for its influence on tranquility.
A Note About 'Zen'
In the world of decor, a Zen-like space refers to a room's natural contributions; such pieces may include bamboo, faint trickling from a water fountain, the fresh aroma of cherry blossoms, a tinkling from chimes.
But a Zen experience shouldn't begin nor stop within the confines of four walls; rather, the principle of Zen is finding our true inner self, our sense of 'place' and our own contributions to it.
Begin your decorating by surrounding yourself with what brings you peace and joy; retreat to your space; focus on the present and how you can incorporate this newfound energy into your everyday life and influence others to discover Enlightenment for themselves.
A Zen-inspired room is a physical presence, it's true but we are influenced by our surroundings, a space's color, its aura. There's no better room than our bedrooms to be inspired--even in our dreams.

Creating Drama in the Bedroom: Red or Burgundy and Black Asian-Inspired Bedding

Mystic Black and Burgundy
Black and red or black and burgundy, are idyllic decor colors, with red meaning joy and good fortune in the Chinese culture. I'm a fan of implementing good~spirited elements in a space's decorating palette.
Don't be afraid of color. See how opulent the rich burgundy walls look in the model room (at left)? The walls seem to embrace the bedding. If the drama is a bit much (I love it, personally), consider taupe walls like those shown in the window treatment model wall above. Taupe is the ideal, 'in~between' choice for a sophisticated look.
The deep reds and night~black hues of these bedding sets evoke warmth and drama. What a great way to dress your bed for that all~embracing look and feel while retreating at day's end.

Add Gold, Add Black, Add a Banana Leaf--or Three
Creating a convincing Asian~Inspired ambiance is best realized by incorporating natural elements that compliment your bedding. The Japanese cherry blossom bedding I showed earlier is easier to envision with tree branches, but black and gold bedding will look striking when paired with natural banana leaves, rattan, wicker and reed-grasses like bamboo.
The brown/gold in the bedding can be layered with Sisal rugs, bamboo blinds, floor screens/ vases with large palm leaves or bamboo poles. I recommend painting the walls in a natural hue similar to the color in the bedding set in a shade lighter or darker depending on your natural light and preference.
Begin with the paint and bedding and start layering with the other large elements, like window treatments and area or natural accent rug. Start big, then go smaller with accessories.
