Frantic mornings are supposed to be a rare event; at least that is how we would like it to be. But each morning seems like another battle against time and while we win some, we tend to lose a lot as well! In our attempt to eek out those few extra minutes of sleep, our entire morning becomes a mess. Of course, we are not here to motivate you or ask you to start strictly following a schedule starting tomorrow. Instead, balance your early morning lethargy with a more organized wardrobe that saves precious minutes and ensures that you reach work on time!
While antique screens and room dividers might not be ideal for contemporary bedrooms, both in terms of practicality and style, one can still draw plenty of inspiration from them. Much like the classic Shoji screens and room dividers used in Japanese design, a perforated wooden room divider is a great option that adds natural warmth to the bedroom. It can easily delineate the bedroom from the living space or home office next to it without blocking light. Simple floating wooden panels offer a more solid solution, while a screen inspired by Mediterranean style offers more artistry and visual flair.
We feature smart home renovations, additions, extensions and revamps on almost a daily basis here at Decoist. Many of these projects not only see a complete transformation of the interior, its ambiance and style, but also old attics, sheds, garages and unwanted extensions being done away with in favor of contemporary extensions. It is wood drawn from these structures that can revitalize your bedroom by transforming itself into a stunning accent wall. Sure, reclaimed wood does need some work, and you will always find some scrap and unusable material in every pile. But be patient and let your old home become a part of your new bedroom!
Live-edge décor is definitely a hot design trend that is sweeping people off their feet with both its uniqueness, and the raw, natural quality it brings to contemporary spaces. In concrete jungles that often lack personality and sterile spaces where all you find is ‘more of the same’, gorgeous live-edge furniture can make a huge difference. A live-edge coffee table can easily become the showstopper of your living room, while others might prefer the live-edge dining table and all its splendor come the busy Holiday season and its seemingly endless lineup of feasts. Having already shared those inspirations with you, today we turn our attention to the bedroom.
All of us would love the comfort of a walk-in closet, and with modern bespoke designs that save up on space, that dream is becoming a reality for homeowners today more than ever before. The walk-in closet that you choose must meet the specific demands of your clothing and accessory collection, and a good idea is to take into account what you love to shop for and your dressing style before you settle on a final design. Some of us might want more coat space, while others could devote an entire section to their large shoe collection!
Adding reclaimed wood to your home is an affordable, easy and creative way to give the interior a quick facelift without having to splurge on a major makeover. With each passing week, reclaimed timber is climbing up the ‘hot trends’ chart, and it is barely a surprise that a generation surrounded by polished artificial surfaces is now falling in love with the warmth of wood! Adding reclaimed wood in spaces like the kitchen and the modern bathroom can be a tricky affair at the best of times. But when it comes to the bedroom, this task becomes a whole lot easier. And it is undoubtedly the reclaimed wood feature wall that is the most popular choice of them all.
We are always on the lookout for new décor collections and exciting furniture that transform interiors and give your home a whole new look. When it comes to contemporary bedrooms, finding a bed that is sleek, elegant and fits in with the refined aura of the room while offering ample comfort is a hard task indeed. While we were lucky enough to find many such delights at the recently concluded Salone del Mobile, today we head in a different direction as we take a look at 4 exclusive and exceptional beds from Cattelan Italia.
We always emphasize on the fact that your bedroom must reflect your personality, offer a soothing and peaceful sanctuary and should be draped in colors that you love the most. We often tend to forget the last part of that equation in favor of hot trends and unassuming neutral that are glorified beyond necessity. The idea of a ‘picture-perfect’ bedroom draped in neutral colors and accentuated by a few pops of bright hues might seem great on paper, but it really is not the dream bedroom for all of us. Some of us tend to adore a bit more color, character and personality. It is precisely why you should consider a colorful bed frame and headboard!
The shade of blue that reminds us of a clear blue sky is one that instantly induces daydreaming. The entire bedroom feels serene and calm, which is just the energy you need before you go to bed! If your head is in the clouds, make sure your feet are planted on the floor of a stunning, dreamy blue bedroom!
There are plenty of directions which you can take while choosing the ideal nightstand. If you are an avid reader who fills his bedroom shelves with books, then a couple of matching bedside tables with adequate drawer space is an absolute must. Others might just need a small bedside table that holds their smartphone, glasses and an alarm clock. No matter what your needs, our latest roundup of trendy finds promises something for everyone!
