Out of every space in a home, your bedroom is without a doubt the most personal. Even though it's an area many of your guests may never actually see, it still deserves a great deal of attention. It's where you recharge, reflect on the day, and even spend time reading a book, so it only makes sense for it to feature the right color palette and furnishings. And let’s not forget that it also has to showcase your design style accurately and complement the overall aesthetic that’s reflected in other areas of your home.
Your small bedroom may be a blessing for a better night’s sleep. The American Sleep Association recommends keeping stimulating activities out of the bedroom. They warn that distractions like the TV, internet, and work can disrupt your sleep patterns. So, the less there is to do in your bedroom, the more sleep you set yourself up for. How’s that for smart design?
In this stylish, rustic bedroom, Minnesota based design firm Martha O’Hara Interiors took the masculine edge off a reclaimed wood ceiling and stone fireplace with contrasting fabrics. Details including the plush neutral bedding and the country plaid curtains add softness and a sense of balance to the room. There is no need for a traditional end table when you have tree stump you can paint half white. The small wing chair on the right may not seem like a typical choice for a rustic bedroom, and that's the point. It lends sophistication while providing a practical purpose.
In this bedroom designed by Hecker Guthrie, there are so many fun texture moments happening. It inspires us to embrace architectural quirks and existing bones rather than trying to hide them. If you don't have exposed brick or stone walls, look for furniture and decor items that feature natural materials. Then warm things up with layers of cozy linens.
