Bedroom / February 3, 2018 / Ailani Hawley.
I have a thing for fairytales and so I always seek for that ‘happily ever after’ look in my home. With its tactile textures, warming beige tones and flowing covers, this bedroom is the epitome of a bed that’s fit for a princess and her prince – or me and my fiancé. It’s clear that the main focus of the room is the bed itself and so, as I believe that you can never have enough scatter cushions either, this scene truly is my ideal bedroom.
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?
Feature walls are not something we tend to specify, but in this case, the origami effect wallpaper worked so well to avoid the room appearing too boxy. The final piece to finish things off is a large feature ceiling light, it is so important to upscale such items to make the most of the space.
When it comes to bedroom design I truly believe in ‘Less is More’. We spend an average of 6 – 8 hours each day in our bedroom and it is where we recharge our batteries. This is why I think it’s important to keep the bedroom absolutely clutter-free and functional, yet cosy and relaxing.
