Piling on layers of various patterns and textures in a mix of different brown and cream colors is the trick that makes this homey bedroom by Locati Architects one of our favorite examples ever. The reclaimed wood wall anchors the space while print fabrics in contrasting patterns covering the walls, window, headboard, and pillows add both visual interest and depth.
A vintage motel sign gets a new life as a campy headboard in this rustic hotel bedroom by Locati Architects. The burnt orange walls match the sign while enhancing the room's cozy appeal. Another fantastic idea is the wood trim around the windows and walls. Raw wood was installed instead of conventional crown molding. The old books and bear lampshade on the left bring on the kitsch.
We love how this bedroom designed by Regan Baker boasts a bohemian feel despite the statement piece: That large-scale photograph of a traditional yellow bedroom. For a similar look, opt for a high-impact photograph of an interior that both reflects and juxtaposes your own space. And in true bohemian fashion, simply lean it against the wall instead of hanging it.
Ok, we saved the best for last. This master bedroom reveal from ‘Studio DIY‘ is freakin’ awesome. I mean, seriously. Awesome. Stunning bed you want to climb in and spend all day Sunday in? Check. Gorgeous wall art you could DIY or thrift? Check. Oh, and they included “before” photos of this room, and yes, it started out the same boring bedroom we all have. So no excuses!
In newer construction, drywall is normally hollow and supported by vertical 2x 4 wood beams (studs) that are 16” apart. If your bed is set up on a non-exterior wall, use a stud finder to mark where your bed’s wood wall beams are and cut out an alcove. Your new alcove may not be incredibly deep, but it may be all you need for small necessities like an alarm clock or some personal items.
Modern farmhouse style puts a fresh twist on rustic details to create a modern space that feels both homey and chic. Case in point, this lovely bedroom by Amber Interior Design based in Calabasas, California. Wood paneled walls were brightened up with white paint. A pretty headboard and accent pillows evoke cozy feelings. The cherry on top is the wicker mirror that lends a stylish bohemian vibe.
