What comes to mind when you think about the perfect bedroom?
Is it a space that you can retreat to at the end of the day and relax?
Or, is it a place to rejuvenate your body and mind before you start yet another productive day?
We all have different ideas when it comes to such a personal space. For some, it might be the ultimate retreat while for others, it might be the perfect place to blend productivity and passion. Here’s a look at 7 of the most sumptuous, relaxing and ingenious bedroom design ideas from around the web.
This bedroom by Other Metro Interiors has modern luxury written all over it. We love the built-in headboard that extends all the way to the ceiling for a cocoon-like effect. Warm beiges, browns and cremes coupled with with soft lighting make this one of out top favourites when it comes bedroom retreats.
Light and airy with some of those soft blues that are so in for 2013, this bedroom would be an oasis in any home. Our favourite feature? The built-in bookcase and television nook, a detail that could be easily replicated in any home with an unused, shallow closet.
Another colour that’s been getting a lot of action this year is grey and we’re really digging the warm tones that Shmidt Studio used in this bedroom. What really makes this bedroom is the mix of clean design, modern wall art, satiny soft sheets and an unlikely suspect: faux fur. One of the best things about this look is that you don’t have to be a millionaire to pull it off but, you can certainly make it look like you are.
Are you noticing a trend here? We are! Built-in’s in the bedroom are huge this year and they will continue to be so for quite some time as homeowners look for ever more creative ways to make the most of the space in their home.
Where do we start? The floating stairs, reading nook and wood-clad, self-contained sleeping platform almost make this bedroom feel like an offering to the gods.
Multipurpose rooms are everywhere this year and this one is no exception but, it is exceptional. The sunken bed is a unique touch that we haven’t seen anywhere else and is unique way to make sleeping feel just a bit more cozy when your bedroom also doubles as your office. Blending home office space with a guest or even master bedroom is a trend that won’t be going away soon.
We love this idea of a “bed-in-a-box” and the designers at Normal Projects did an amazing job of making turning the good old “murphy bed” into something modern, cozy and cool. In our opinion this is one of the best all in one live, work, play spaces we’ve spotted so far.
We’ve saved one of our favourites for last. This gorgeous contemporary bedroom by Houston Designer, MN Design blends modern and classic for a cozy bedroom retreat that we’d never want to leave. Soft colours, textures and just a hint of chrome make this look modern yet soft and super easy to replicate in your own home.
