Japanese anime is a style of motion picture animation that stands out by using stylized, futuristic art and incredibly bright colors. Decorating your bedroom in anime style is easy if you remember to use colorful decorations and simple, Japanese style furniture placement. Whether or not you have a specific anime show or movie theme in mind, there are a few simple things you can do to spruce up your space and get a truly anime style bedroom.
Things You'll Need
- Four 5- by 5-inch mirrors
- Colorful printed bedding
- Japanese anime wall hangings
- Rainbow string lights
- Japanese paper lanterns
Take everything off your walls, including posters, unnecessary shelves and photographs. Remove all clutter from your bedroom and make sure it is clean.
Hang four 5- by 5-inch mirrors in a straight line above your bed in lieu of a headboard. The mirrors will catch and reflect all the colors and lights in the room to enhance the overall effect as well as portray the futuristic and stylized feel of an anime.
Replace your bedding with something that is colorful and printed. Pin up a few Japanese anime wall hangings or scrolls, using them to inspire you as you decorate the rest of the room. Use colors and items that match the wall hangings.
Brighten up the room by hanging rainbow string lights around the top perimeter. Hang a few Japanese paper lanterns from the ceiling.
