I absolutely love this loft bedroom by Emma Gurner, as it is cosy and welcoming, but contemporary and minimalist at the same time. I like the colour scheme of dark blue and pink, which is very feminine and the wooden built-in wardrobes give the rooms a masculine edge, so it speaks to both men and women. The pink lampshade with the copper base is a show stopper and I can imagine it gives the room a warm and cosy feel I the dark.
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.
