Bedroom / April 13, 2018 / Rayne Boyer.
The use of darker tones on the walls creates instant depth, in particular, wall coverings rather than paint helps to create a more cosy feel, such as this gorgeous grasscloth paper. Layering textures and patterns within a scheme also helps to create that warm enveloping vibe, think gorgeous velvets teamed with satins, luxe faux furs and textured linens.
I’ve fallen in love with the feel and style of Hygge living; in this room, the client and I wanted to mix contemporary luxury living with a dash of Hygge. So, have kept the colour scheme very neutral, with browns, greys, blush tones and white to create a warm and homely atmosphere. This client dreamed of a very relaxed, yet somewhat tailored appearance, which we feel has been achieved, through the use of many natural textures, the use of clean lines and a minimalistic approach.
The bedroom should be one of the most comfortable and relaxing rooms in your home. That’s why I prefer a warm, soothing colour palette that helps you to unwind after a long day. I feel that luxurious textiles such as velvet and silk complement warmer tones very well and give it a high-end look without compromising the comfort. I like the rest of the decor quite minimalist though so the room doesn’t look too busy. Simple and chic is the way to go!
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.
