For the master bedroom the same assumptions apply but once I got the image for the bed I would like to feature, I realized that a little interesting texture on the wall behind the bed or right across from the bed might be a nice touch.
As usual hope all is well and want to thank you in advance for staying tuned during this series, it’s approaching the end but you know I am always here to answer any questions.
In the first post, we introduced a case study home and used the kitchen to explore where to begin and how to draw inspiration for your home’s colors. Then we moved on to the living/great room and then to the dining room. Let’s tackle the bedroom now!
How about we visualize that somewhere in that bedroom perhaps on the exterior wall (the wall with a large window, there is some exposed brick on the inside and that brick is painted stark white.
Jens Woven Windsor Platform Bed – An interesting boho – ish piece that brings another organic layer to this home story. It’s an unusual choice for a master but I believe it is very indicative of the adults that will share this bed. Besides, it is a sturdy piece further reinforced by metal for those weekend mornings when the young ones and dog jump in for some fun easy morning play.
Rug and highlighting linens, decorative pillows, and more texture
Rez Kilim Space-Dye Rug also from UO provides that warm textured layered in the bedroom over those amazing wood floors to give us the comfort to walk barefooted and wind down from long busy days.
The woven rug with Kalim inspired space-dye print is a neutral addition to our casual but stylish boudoir (although it is a couple’s bedroom we will call it that to inspire a bit of Worldly romance). The tassels on the ends complete the look and add additional and casual interest.
The soft off white and subtle gray are neutrals yet interesting without jumping off the canvas too much. (“The canvas” = the floors).
This subtle play on a soft color story is further enhanced by the washed cotton linens. My preferred bedding for any bedroom, the ensemble is then complemented at the foot of the bed by the textured throw, that with its coloring and tassels pics up on the details & colors of the rug.
It further ties with the decorative pillow with a splash of a bit more color, which will tie to the Artwork later.
Artwork and accessories & functional pieces
This is the, even more, fun part.
I chose a monochromatic image of a girl also from Anthropology with a gold frame to contrast the texture of the brick wall. To complement this piece I selected a pair of prints in black and white of stylized flowers with a more subtle gold frame.
To add a pop of color and tie with the color on the decorative pillows as well as, the art pieces I chose a simple print of a jar with flowers depicting a strong yellow to pop against the black leaves and to complement the other three pieces and complete the edited gallery.
These pieces of artwork will complement each other perfectly and add that collected look we are after in every room.
Lastly, we add the functional pieces, the bedside “wood shelves” don’t take up any floor space and allow the adults to use this area also a quick work space as these pieces are also a pull-out desk.
Moreover, they can store a whimsical faux fur stool under which further complements the layering of textures and since the bedside tables/shelves are not very deep, (potentially to keep clutter down) I added a wall mounted light fixture to save the surface to house a glass of water, a cell phone and a good book for night time wind down.
I am sure in this room there is a dresser or a chest of drawers, perhaps a book case and may be a mirror.
But the idea here is to give you jump off points and elements and how mixing and taking a little risk with textures, a soft palette and pops of color we can make for an interesting story of the space we call home.
I believe that curating a style unique to your home is what truly awakens your desires, and that’s what you deserve.
So go for it.
