33 Aesthetic Room Ideas for a Trendy Space (2)

Aesthetic rooms are having a major moment. Popular especially among TikTok users, aesthetic rooms are characterized by the presence of greenery (think plants or hanging vines, both real or faux); muted colors (neutrals and pinks are most common); and fun light fixtures (like LED strands or string lights).

What Does "Aesthetic" Mean?

The term "aesthetic," when used in the decor examples featured on TikTok, Instagram, and other image-based websites, refers to any attractive room style that makes use of personal touches that are also on-trend.

For TikTok and Instagram enthusiasts, "aesthetic" can apply to a room of any style—from cottagecore to indie or postmodern—but personal expression and trend-setter timeliness will always be just as important as the classic standards for visual appeal.

"Personal expression plays a major role in what is deemed aesthetic, as there are so many different design styles to draw from," TikTok user and design enthusiast Emily Shaw says. Many aesthetic rooms also incorporate personal touches like photo collages, printed photographs, and art prints.

Looking to bring the trend into your own space? Look no further than the aesthetic bedrooms below.

    Add Calming Pink Tones

    When in doubt, try an accent wall. This pale pink adds warmth in an otherwise neutral bedroom. Plants are a key component of aesthetic rooms, and what better way to display them than on a floating shelf? Dried pampas grass is also a glam touch and will last much longer than a traditional bouquet of flowers, making it a low-maintenance fave.

    Stock Up on Candles

    Candles are also a must for any aesthetic room, whether they're real or battery operated. Scatter a few on your nightstand, dresser, desk, or anywhere else that could use a little bit of ambiance. If you have a nonworking fireplace in your room, you can always fill the insert with candles as well to fake the look of a roaring fire.

    Keep It Simple Yet Personal

    33 Aesthetic Room Ideas for a Trendy Space (35)

    Aesthetic rooms generally do not feature bulky furniture pieces, so streamline your setup by hanging wall sconces (no need for a large nightstand with a sizable table lamp) and cut the excess clutter. To ensure that your room style reflects your personality, though, work in some thoughtful accent pieces that speak to you. A statement mirror, neon sign, or curvy chair—or all of the above—will certainly do the trick.


  • How do you decorate a room in aesthetic decor?

    Aesthetic rooms encompass a variety of particular styles and decor elements. But some items that are prominent in many current aesthetic decorating trends include vines, string lights, LED strands, disco balls, rattan, hanging plants in macrame hangers, and photo wall collages.

  • What are some aesthetic decor styles?

    Aesthetic decor styles are an internet-based category of attractive room styles that incorporate personal touches that are also "on-trend." Some aesthetic room styles include shabby chic, minimalist, bohemian, cottagecore, dark academia, indie, postmodern, boho style, anime, and grunge.

  • What is cottagecore aesthetic?

    Cottagecore is a social media hashtag and internet-based lifestyle trend inspired by a quaint vision of country life. Think rural living, the English countryside, earth tones, floral wallpaper prints, cozy quilts, lacy doilies, fresh or dried flowers, and vintage farmhouse furniture.

  • What is a preppy bedroom?

    A preppy bedroom has many of the same elements as a preppy wardrobe. Think classic materials, nautical themes, plaid patterns, vintage sports equipment as decor, and colors that range from bold reds and navy blues to pastel mashups like pink and green.

  • What is a Y2K bedroom?

    A Y2K bedroom is named after the Y2K bug of the turn of the century. It is an aesthetic trend that traffics in 1990s/2000s nostalgia, incorporating decor elements such as neon colors, blingy metallics, period wall collages, glittery beaded curtains, and wavy mirrors.

As a freelance writer and home decor enthusiast, I have been actively involved in the industry since 2018. My passion for interior design and aesthetics has led me to contribute to various lifestyle publications, including Apartment Therapy and Architectural Digest. I have a keen eye for on-trend ideas and a deep understanding of different aesthetic styles.

When it comes to aesthetic room design, there are several key concepts and elements that are commonly used to create a visually appealing space. These concepts include:

  1. Greenery: Aesthetic rooms often incorporate plants or hanging vines, whether real or faux, to bring a touch of nature indoors. This adds a fresh and vibrant element to the overall design.

  2. Muted Colors: Neutrals and pinks are commonly used in aesthetic rooms to create a soft and soothing ambiance. These colors help to establish a calm and inviting atmosphere.

  3. Fun Light Fixtures: LED strands or string lights are popular choices for aesthetic rooms. These light fixtures add a playful and whimsical element to the space, creating a cozy and magical atmosphere.

  4. Personal Touches: Aesthetic rooms are all about personal expression and individual style. Incorporating photo collages, printed photographs, and art prints allows individuals to showcase their unique tastes and create a space that reflects their personality.

  5. Texture: Layering different textures in a room adds depth and interest. From dyed pink sheepskin pillows to feathered pendant lights, experimenting with various textures can elevate the overall aesthetic and make the space feel more cozy.

  6. Neon Signs: Neon lights are not just for commercial spaces. In aesthetic rooms, neon signs can be customized to display names, favorite quotes, or meaningful song lyrics. They serve as a standout feature and add a touch of personality to the space.

  7. Moon Phase Garlands: Moon phase garlands are a common fixture in aesthetic rooms. Hung above the bed or installed above a desk or dresser, these garlands add a celestial and dreamy element to the room.

  8. Wall Collages: Wall collages are an affordable and creative way to decorate an aesthetic room. By tearing out pages from magazines and arranging them on the wall, individuals can create a unique and visually appealing display.

These are just a few concepts and elements used in aesthetic room design. Whether you're looking to create a cottagecore-inspired room or embrace a minimalist aesthetic, incorporating these ideas can help you achieve the on-trend and visually appealing space you desire.
