Bedrooms to Dream About

bed frame


The most intimate space of the home

where we retreat after a long day of work and busy lives
then later wake to the possibilities of a new day

Such an important room but it's often the last space in the home that is decorated
after the kitchen is done, the living room furnished and the kids' rooms taken care of,
we may then, finally submit to giving ourselves a space of our own to enjoy



I believe a bedroom should be one's sanctuary
a place of calm and respite
a beautiful space with luxurious textures -
great sheets,  fluffy pillows & duvet,  a soft rug at the edge of the bed
that pampers tired feet


.

But it doesn't have to be boring
and when it comes to furniture there is no reason to stick to the old-school
matching bedroom set!!!

Like most rooms, a good layout is important. 
Lighting requirements are very different and based on personal preference
to wake with the sun or with the alarm clock in darkness.

Since the bed is the focal point of any bedroom
it will often determine the style for the space.  
The headboard and frame can be made of wood, metal, upholstered 
or for the adventurous spirits, a re-purposed door, a vintage window or a screen 

pretty much any interesting object can be used to ground the space
 and define it as the main feature in the room.

Go big or go home with this headboard below. 
The scale works in this space because the ceilings are very tall - it helps to make the space 
more cozy.    Clearly this bold space exudes confidence
to also have padded fabric walls AND plaid wallpaper above .... just WOW!

super chic and cozy headboard!

Gorgeous wallpaper as accent wall is not new - but this one is stunning!
A mural can make a huge impact and now you can even create your own.

This rustic bedroom loft gets a cool street-wise vibe
with the addition of mural behind the bed that depicts
torn advertisements.

Blue and red is not a colour combination for the faint of heart - especially in a bedroom.
It really works here because the wall colour continues in a lighter shade on the ceiling, enveloping the space to make it cozy.  The red accents make the space feel regal - clearly the vibe this room is going for with that classic French antique carved headboard.

Tres riche and lovely bedroom  

The charm of the wood beams and exposed brick walls sets the tone for this bedroom.
The lovely water colour painting softens
the harsher elements and gives this room an ethereal quality.
No room for side tables or lamps?  Wall sconces work perfectly in bedrooms placed just above shoulder height when sitting in bed to read.

I love bringing in vintage elements to a space to give it personality
and character.  These beautiful windows add charm while keeping the space light
and farmhouse chic.   All the other elements in the room take their cue from the
feeling and inspiration of the headboard.

The trick is to treat it as another room and decorate with necessary elements to make it work - a great chair, lighting, side table, soft pillows and artwork.

It's really about pulling together soft textures and soothing hues to create warmth and serenity.
