Bringing camo indoors can create a fun, outdoorsy retreat that expresses style like nothing else. Here are a few ideas from to get started.

According to retailer Camo Trading, camouflage has become so much more than just a certain color palette and pattern. It’s a way of expressing a lifestyle—a love for the outdoors and certain kind of spunk. For that reason, camo can be found on everything from apparel to car accessories to dog collars. Camo bridal wear has even made an appearance.

So for true camo lovers at heart, there is no reason not to bring those beloved camouflage patterns from the outdoors to the indoors? Here are a few tips on using camo in the bedroom to create a unique look.

  •     Mixing in a few surprise camo elements makes a bigger impression that one might think. Camouflage decor items don’t have to be big to make a big impression. A throw pillow and some window treatments can blend in (so to speak) with other looks and add a little unexpected camo attitude, or try camouflage drapes or a shower curtain on a tension rod to serve as a room divider. Even something as simple as using a camo ribbon in a craft project can express a camo-loving lifestyle in a fun, pretty way.

Of course, camouflage fits perfectly into a color scheme of khaki, brown and green, but it also works as a surprise twist in brighter palettes including pinks, blues—maybe even blaze orange.

  •     Larger camo pieces can easily be complemented with other outdoor looks. Antlers, real or faux, on the walls or in the form of lighting add a note of authenticity, not to mention natural beauty, to camo decor. Buffalo-check plaid accents with your camouflage bedspread and shams can create create the rugged feel of a hunting lodge in your bedroom. A love for the outdoors can also be expressed with camo paired with nature scenes. Consider collecting small frames of wildlife art or photography and arranging them creatively on a wall to bring the beauty of the outdoors inside and complement your camo rugs or window treatments.
  •     It's most important to choose a camo pattern that expresses personal style. Different patterns and colors create different looks—traditional camo in forest green and brown creates a military feel, while pink camo is both feminine and tough, and black-and-white camo styles offer a contemporary camo look. Camo decor comes in so many favorite hunting patterns, from Mossy Oak Break Up to Realtree All Purpose to anything else the hunting heart desires. What's best is to choose the look that works for the room and shows off a unique outdoor spirit. With so many options, it might be tough to choose.

Whether the goal of the day is to outfit the kids’ rooms in camo or just add some camo love to a living area, a customized camo look can be easily achieved with just a little creativity.
