The world’s biggest furniture and interior design fair has so much to offer in the space of such a short time that many of its amazing new décor finds are often lost in the rush. But this year, we have decided to shine a spotlight on the best of Salone del Mobile 2016, giving those who missed out on our live coverage of the event another chance to get in on all the fun! Having already flipped through the inspiring bathrooms and fabulous kitchen ideas from the event, today we take a look at the trendiest bedrooms from Milan 2016.
If saving up precious square footage in your small bedroom is a priority, then it is hard to find a nightstand that is far more efficient than one that is wall-mounted. Floating nightstands with a box-like design are a hot trend this season and you can easily add one to the bedroom without undertaking a major redecorating project. The best part about it is that even the forgotten corner next to the bed on the far side can also now feature a cool nightstand that also adds to the overall aesthetic.
For some, changing the color palette of the bedroom makes all the difference! What’s your idea of soothing? A white background dotted with candy-colored accents? Or do you like to keep it soft and simple with minimal tones? Peach is the perfect counterpart to the light blue bedding below. The combination of pastels evokes the feel of a tropical vacation.
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.
We start off with a spotlight on the most colorful bed frames and headboards and this is a series that you simply do not want to miss! From bold and sunny yellow to daring scarlet and majestic purple, this is a collection of the most brilliant and beautiful beds drenched in plenty of color. And the best part of it all is that each of these beds feels perfectly at home in modern bedrooms thanks to the use of simple, straight lines, uncomplicated form and minimal aesthetics. Add to it fabulous, tufted headboards in matching hue and you have a comfortable bed that is also a delightful visual treat.
Bedrooms with walls clad in reclaimed wood have a certain sense of tranquility, an inviting aura, and natural charisma that sets them apart from the mundane. Turning even the sophisticated contemporary bedroom into a relaxing, personal sanctuary, reclaimed wood walls make a big impact both in terms of aesthetics and the mood of the space they adorn. With that in mind, here are 25 of the very best bedrooms that have embraced this trend gleefully. Hopefully they will inspire you to do the same as well!
Designs moving away from this ‘contemporary-minimal’ trend also seem to carry a certain sophistication, like the lovely bed frame from Gruppo Tomasella. Combine these with plush bedding, and you have the outright showstoppers like the floating bed from MobilGAM that gives the impression of levitating effortlessly thanks to a transparent base. No matter what your preferred style is, there is something for everyone here!
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.
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!
Simple in its form and efficient to the core, Pass from Jesse is ideal for those who want a space-savvy walk-in closet that is easy on the eyes. With a bronze-painted aluminum frame, the design of Pass allows it to be used as a self-supporting structure that can be incorporated into your existing master bedroom. With a multitude of wooden shelves, custom cabinets and coat racks, you can combine more than one unit to create a more extensive walk-in closet that caters to your specific needs. With a dark finish and unique appeal, Pass fits in with a wide array of styles ranging from contemporary to industrial.
