Bedroom / June 26, 2018 /
Your design must contain all the spaces and functions required for your general bedroom needs: a bed, a place to store and organize clothing, light sources (e.g. natural and artificial), and an entrance to the bedroom. The challenge is to consider and re-conceptualize these basic elements to rethink designs for new sleeping spaces, storage, organizing structures and systems for books, and other materials, access to outdoor spaces, a space to study, and a space to relax. Is this an active space, or a tranquil space?
I wanted this nursery to be a tranquil yet timeless space. The combination of subtle greys, soft pinks and white furniture is timeless and effortlessly stylish and ensures longevity. Taking inspiration from the vintage wallpaper tree art, I have accented this with brighter pinks and lime greens to punctuate the scheme and add freshness. The cotton curtains, have a playful embroidered band across the bottom featuring cats and birds, adding interest and fun to the scheme and contrasting well with the brighter pink linen blind. There is a useful mix of both open and closed storage. Contemporary pieces (such as the bunny nightlight and the grey acrylic storage stool) are mixed with vintage finds (including the wallpaper used for the tree and the antique childrens books) to create a unique room and one that complements the rest of the home. A sweet sanctuary.
