Sara Castell. Bedroom. September 04th , 2017.
It’s no secret that, for many, the bedroom serves as an oasis. Particularly with the advent of lavish en-suite bath setups and private decks, our sleeping quarters have transformed from strictly utilitarian spaces into retreats that serve as an escape from our busy lives. There’s no reason why your bedding can’t serve the same purpose.
Afraid of being too stark? To keep your small bedroom from feeling cold or void of personality, layer your whites with different textures and white-on-white patterns for drama. In the bedroom above, the simple addition of a patterned throw and chrome bedside lamps transforms the room for sterile to stylish.
If floor space is limited but you have higher ceilings, consider adding a loft or platform for your sleeping area with storage or seating underneath. This isn’t an option for everyone, but for those who don’t mind literally climbing into bed, this layout can completely transform a space.
Contemporary style is all about maintaining sharp edges and harsh contrasts. To do this, make sure your bedding features either a solid color or a print with rigidly defined shapes. It’s also helpful to echo these lines throughout the room, so this trend may work best for those whose furniture already has similar angles to it.
That said, the question becomes: What does it take to create a great guest room? Which features will make your guests feel most at home and leave them talking about how much they’ve enjoyed their stay? We’re here to help figure that out.
