The major trends of 2014 set the tone for those in the year ahead and you will see designers trying to find that elusive balance between the modern and the timeless. From bedrooms that make a grand visual statement to those that offer the perfect tranquil retreat amidst the urban chaos
Here is another idea that will take very little of your time and considering that we are just a few days away from Christmas it is not a bad option at all. This homeowner embraces her Swedish roots with fun decorations that add festive cheer without going overboard. It also tells you that you need not completely alter the appeal and the color scheme of the bedroom for the next two weeks to usher in a hint of the season’s joy.
We absolutely love the look of the contemporary bedroom as there is not a detail that you need to change even beyond the holiday season! This urbane space looks both festive and fashionable and will serve you well all year long. Sure if you want to add some extra Christmassy flavor then bring in some unique hand-blown Christmas ornaments and mistletoe to spice up the trendy bedroom.
Pantone has already crowned the exciting Marsala as its color of the year and luxurious purples sumptuous yellows and dark greens will also be preferred ahead of boring beige and simple white even in the bedroom. If you’re less certain about committing to such rich hues then use bedding drapes or pillows in the color before making more permanent changes.
Christmas is all about spending time with family and friends decorating the house beautifully and enjoying loads of fun and frolic. While many of us deck the entryway living and even the dining room with shiny Christmas ornaments and sparkling lighting the bedroom seems to go unnoticed and under the festive radar.
The abundance of natural light along with the visual connectivity with the outdoors ensures that you do not feel claustrophobic even in the tiniest of rooms. While picking the right skylight for the small bedroom make sure that it adds to the style and symmetry of the room. Adding twin skylights at each end of the room is generally a good idea as it offers even illumination and a visual equilibrium.
This is an easy way to also switch between hot accents while keeping the neutral backdrop constant. Bedside table lamps or even simple vases on the nightstand can also make a big statement when the rest of the room is completely clad in muted hues.
While most often we find skylights being used in expansive living rooms and small attics they can be an equally invaluable and aesthetic addition to the bedroom as well. The sight of the clear night sky and twinkling stars also helps in creating a more soothing atmosphere and aids in a good night’s sleep.
