Bedroom / January 19, 2018 / Rayne Boyer.
I love how such a minimal monochrome scheme can produce maximum impact, whilst allowing calm to permeate the room for some on-point interior design. I was also fascinated how the softening evening light transformed the charcoal paint colour into a dreamy blue-grey before ebbing back towards black again post-dusk. Working away from home isn’t so bad.
When designing a bedroom, it is especially important for me that we add some natural elements. Whether that’s in the form of the more standard greenery, planting and wooden floorboards or something a little different like the clever use of plywood for a headboard and refurbishing some old crates for storage. By adding these elements, the room takes on a tranquil and relaxing vibe. Studies have shown this can actually reduce the heart rate and pulse making for a more pleasant environment to rest – perfect for retreating from a busy day.
How about a minimalist bedroom that will wish you sweet dreams? A bedroom that pleases your senses after a long and busy day. A space that is a balm for the soul of its residents, which creates a sense of sanctuary amid the hustle and bustle of everyday life. A Zen space with a subtle extravagant touch in the form of a marble wall which acts as a blank canvas for other features. A focal point in a form of a cosy bed upholstered with a nice, soft fabric enriched with two asymmetric lamps giving the space an unusual and interesting look. There is a large walk-in wardrobe, to the right of the bed, allowing residents to keep the space nice and tidy – perhaps apart from a couple of great books laying around here and there. But who wouldn’t love to lay down on this bed with a good read?
My personal choice of colour palette frequently ebbs towards darker, richer tones, particularly during the winter months, because these tend to evoke a sense of cocooning warmth and comfort. This dark and alluring charcoal-panelled hotel room I recently stayed in creates instant drama, whilst contrasting crisp white bedding elevates the scheme further.
