It is hard to say how many times in my life I have heard the ‘no bed next to a window’ rule. It’s definitely more than a few. Fortunately, rules are made to be broken. If your bedroom is extraordinarily small, you might have limited options on where you place your bed. You can always find a way to put a bed in front of a window and make it look more awesome than awkward, and here we have one example. Thanks to the curtains which frame the window perfectly and the fact they go from wall to wall, the design achieves a luxurious and purposeful look. Symmetry is key here, as the bed lines up with the window in a pleasing, balanced way. The top of the headboard is perfectly in line with the window sill and is not obscuring the window. A calming palette of colours creates a cosy space with a seductive feel.
The inspiration for this bedroom was a tropical Caribbean beach, which to me represents peace and relaxation. I designed this bedroom using clean lines and soothing colours, such as taupe and a soft turquoise. I always recommend cool colours in bedrooms because they create a sense of calm. At the same time, I used warm materials such as wood and fabric, as well as rich textures to create some contrast. Add a few pools of light and you got yourself the perfect recipe for a cosy haven of relaxation.
