It is never a bad idea to update your bedroom. This is one area that often gets snubbed when redecorating, even though we spend a considerable amount of time sleeping in this space. Why not create a fresh haven to unwind at the end of a stressful day and feel invigorated when we wake up? Here are some unique bedroom design ideas…
Dreaming of White White has the ability to make everything feel fresh and clean. Many people are afraid of white because they think it will be boring, but when used in different shades, textures and with a few accents of colour, white can be quite interesting and even dreamy.
Wall of Frames Can’t decide what art piece to hang over your bed? Why choose? Create an interesting gallery wall instead. Frame your favourite images, memories and things that inspire you, and every morning you’ll wake surrounded with positivity.
Bring on the Neon We have been seeing neon colours showing up everywhere in home décor lately. Adding splashes of it to a neutral room can really pull a lot of punch. The colours are so saturated that they instantly make you feel awake and invigorated, perfect for getting started in the morning.
Draped Netting Forget the mosquitos, a netting can be a beautiful way to add romance to a bedroom. Draped over the bed (pictured below left), a netting can create a cloud-like, dreamy feeling that’s fit for any princess.
The nice thing about bedding and other fabrics is that they can easily be changed. Pastels (including pink) are a great option because, like neutrals, they are light and airy but also have a hue which creates a different vibe. Paired with hints of copper produces a beautiful contrast.
Reflecting on Headboards
Not every headboard has to be part of the bed. A trend we’re seeing lately is using framed mirrors as a headboard. The most interesting examples are found in antique frames with intricate details. Not only do they reflect more light into the room, they can also stand out as a unique statement piece on the wall.
Lit from Above Switching your bedside lamp for a hanging pedant is definitely a trend on the rise. Not only does it look super cool, it also frees up much-needed space on the table. One word of caution, however: be sure that the light switch is close enough to the bed. If not, have a switch installed on the cord.
I Like your Accent Accent chairs with great curves or a pop of color are an excellent way to add visual interest to a bedroom. Truthfully, not many people actually sit in their bedroom lounge chair, but as my architect teacher taught me, “Every bedroom needs a chair, if only to throw your clothes on.”
