Decorating ones master bedroom is a deeply personal affair. It calls for a clever curation of both personal details and comfortable luxuries. Perhaps more so than any other room in a home, a master bedroom is an intimate reflection of distinct individual style and personality. There’s no better space to celebrate your unique tastes and fashion palette. Here are some ideas on how to translate one’s sartorial sense to the boudoir.
Look for off blacks, grays and whites, all rolling back into each other like the greens of a forest fold back into each green. Take a visit to any of the interior design or trade fairs this year and you’ll see this color palette prevalent amongst vendors.
Look for luxurious hotel designs and not cheap tacky motel style rooms. Lighting is one of the most important factors in affecting the mood of people, and that’s where the soft mood lighting of hotel rooms work. Add some plants and greenery to add an extra warm homely inviting atmosphere.
While it’s an old trend, it is still, and will continue to be popular. It’s a very safe option if you plan not to change the decor of the room for generations as it doesn’t have a time stamp on it. Think of the interior design trends of the 60’s and 70’s, they went out of fashion and aged which requires an remodeling at some point. A room like the one below is timeless. The room will have to be touched up to keep it fresh but the general underlying design of the room remains.
We’ve seen a rise in ethnic prints over the past few years, but this trend is more specific: Moroccan. Morocco, placed up in the north west of Africa has penetrated the design world with its unique patterns and designs. Look for Moroccan patterns on canvas prints, puffs, curtains, sheers, bed and upholstery coverings. There are all additions to a room which are easy to implement yet strikingly powerful in their impact, offering maximum effect for time invested.
Use natural tongue and groove wooden panels, brick or brick veneer for walls (like the photo above). Use natural materials as features in the room such as the room below, where Murphy Code have used chunky thick planks of wood, showcasing the natural grooves and curves, which jumps out from the bed as a feature on the wall behind, weaved around well place sconce lighting: Loving it.
Rustic, natural and rugged. As with the cool soft design from Australia below, this is about using country materials and colors. Natural accessories such as the branches (Silver Birch or painted white?) in the photo below, adds a real rustic feel to the room. Similar to the point above, but edging more towards a house in the country as opposed to a city apartment.
