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.

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!
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!
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!
