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.
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.
We were lucky to be asked to design this guest bedroom, flooded with natural light due to its large windows, and it was the perfect blank canvas. Being a modern build, we worked to build up the textures to avoid the room looking too flat. One of the tricks we like to use in these contemporary developments is running the curtains wall-to-wall; being the full ceiling height, not only does this make the room cosier, but completely opens the room up.
