Bedroom / June 14, 2018 / .
Go for bold. As the saying goes. This attic bedroom shows off its sloping walls with pride and is consequently a bright, energetic space. A minimalist bed and desk area fit in neatly and make this teenagers room a fun retreat. Wow with white. All white is a fail-safe space enhancer, but there are so many ways to do it. Here soft neutrals add just the right amount of warmth, while the minimal wall decorations draw the eye to the window and the view beyond. The neat built-in wall unit keeps clutter tucked out of sight behind slick drawer fronts, creating a serene mood.
Draw a floorplan of your existing bedroom and include it in this step. Make a list of those features that you really like about how your bedroom looks / functions. Make separate list of all the ways that your current bedroom is not so well designed, too small, the light is poor, the door is in the wrong place, the bathroom is too far away, etc.
Here is some more typographic decor – the lettering in this bedroom sets up the design theme for a more mysterious attraction. While storage and art would normally occupy a headboard wall, here it takes a prominent position at the side of the bed. The adjustable ask lamp is a versatile touch. The desk chair used here is the Flow chair.
Stick to a limited color palette. If all white is not for you, bring in your favorite colors, but in a thoughtful way. Here, the brights are limited to reds and oranges — which work beautifully with the brick wall and wooden furniture — and are teamed with plenty of white for an airy feel. Let the light in. Keep window treatments to a minimum in a small space to make the most of the natural light and keep the look unfussy. For privacy add plain roller blinds or hang flat panels of lace or voile.
