It’s easy to get stuck in a design rut when it comes to your bedroom. Perhaps you’re weary of your wardrobes or bored with your bed. The good news is, with a little inspiration, you can give your boudoir an instant style makeover. The following simple tips should help you to create a space you can truly fall in love with.
Choose a feature bed
By far the most important item in this room is your bed. This piece is the focal point of the space and by investing in a bold new version with bags of style, you can transform the look of the room. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box when selecting this object either. OK, there’s nothing wrong with standard versions that you can pick up in typical shops. However, by being a little more adventurous in your choice, you can make a real statement. Bedroom furniture specialists such as And So To Bed offer an array of beautiful and unusual items that might be ideal in your home.
For the ultimate in luxury, perhaps a magnificent gothic four poster would fit the bill, or maybe an indulgent gilded baroque bed would better suit your sense of style. Another fabulous option is an soft-edged sleigh bed. It really is worth putting some effort into finding a product with that all-important wow factor.
Experiment with different furniture
There are certain items of furniture that most bedrooms have. From conventional wardrobes to drawers and dressing tables, these products certainly have their uses. However, they can be lacking in design flare. With this in mind, it’s worth adding some more atypical objects to help give your boudoir extra personality.
For example, if you have the space, a lavish chaise longue can make a superb addition. These long, elegant pieces evoke a sense of decadence and they have a timeless appeal. Meanwhile, rather than sticking to standard bedside tables, why not take a look at the range of pedestal tables on offer? These slender pieces lend rooms instant class.
Select a new colour scheme
Of course, it’s impossible to talk about a style makeover without mentioning colour. One of the simplest and most effective ways to overhaul the look of bedrooms is by giving them a new hue. Don’t shy away from bold colours. Remember, you can always introduce them in the form of a feature wall and carry the theme through with your choice of rugs, throws, bedding, window dressings and even wall art.
I’m currently absolutely loving Urban Artist, Hannah Adamaszek. Hannah Adamaszek injects new talent and energy in to the street art scene with her female portraits; which bring a painterly style often found in contemporary art to the street art scene.
Earthy tones and harmonious contours have earned Adamaszek’s works a place on many an outside space, from the unique Brandalism project to StreetFest and UpFest. And her unique canvases offer a calm feminine approach and emotionally-charged contribution to an art scene predominantly saturated by many a male artist.
I’m lucky enough to own one of her prints, that adds a splash of colour to my white living room. See more of her art here.
By following simple tips like these, you’ll be able to give your bedroom a new lease of life.
