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.
I love using deep colours on the wall in a bedroom as it makes the room immediately feel cosy and relaxing, which makes it peaceful for sleeping. A trick is to balance the deep colours with lots of white – bedding is a perfect example of how to do this, as it makes up a large area in a bedroom (you can also add a touch of colour with throws and/or cushions). White window treatments work great as well (shutters in particular). In terms of furniture, you could blend the deep colour of the wall and match with the furniture or go pale so it is more noticeable – both work really well.
For me, symmetry is a really effective feature in bedroom designs. We used these matching bedside tables and lamps to create a sense of balance which work perfectly to ground what is quite a bold and colourful room. I always go for a really crisp clean white bed linen, it automatically makes a space feel more elegant and provides the perfect foundation for colourful soft furnishings. Finally, texture is always an important consideration. In the above bedroom, the mixture of wooden and metallic finishes create contrast in the room whilst also making it feel more contemporary. Layering texture is essential in any scheme but I would say even more so in a neutral bedroom scheme where texture adds depth and dimension.
