Bedroom / June 24, 2018 / .
I love the calming and clean atmosphere this space has, which I think is really important for a childs room. As a Mid Century design geek I love the simple wooden mobile hanging above the cot, the print of the wolf cub matches the earthy tones of the wood and cushion perfectly. I also love the idea of having photography of baby animals in a kids room, its just the right amount of cuteness whilst still feeling a little grown up. I am a big fan of Middle eastern textiles and I really like the slight juxtaposition of the candy coloured persian rug and monochrome block printed throw. I chose this image as it has a great balance of mature style with cute elements and I think a room like this could be easily adapted as the child grows up.
Efficient use of space is something that the Scandinavian style places a premium on and this is precisely why you see even the biggest bedrooms with this style ending up using only the square footage that is absolutely necessary. Once again, you can turn to bedding or an accent wall in cool, pastel hues to add color to this tiny, curated setting.
Your challenge is to redesign your bedroom and rethink how it should, or could, function as a multi-purpose space. What does a modern bedroom look like? Consider technology- does this space embrace technology or is this a space to unplug? If you share your bedroom with someone else, how can the space be designed to accommodate you and the other person’s needs and interests?
Bring the outside in. Using and designing around natural elements sends a subliminal message to the brain to feel calm. The colors, sights, sounds, scents, and textures found in nature present the most perfect balance and are the greatest source of inspiration for all my schemes. One way to bring nature inside is to incorporate images of the outdoors into your childs bedroom. Especially when working with children, wall art should be photography over paintings. Photos help children learn how to observe details around them and they learn how to appreciate everything nature does for us as a whole. Photos can also double as lovely views when windows with lovely vistas are not available.
