Bedrooms are always my favorite rooms to design. I love how personal the spaces become and that they truly are for the people who live there. A lot of clients want to redo their living rooms or dining rooms because that’s what their guests see but spending time designing a beautiful bedroom for yourself is the epitome of #selfcare.
Where to Start
This bedroom design is all about sophistication and peace. I started with the statement Cordelia bed because it brings in such drama. I love the exaggeration of the height of the headboard as a play on scale. To keep the rest of the room serene I’d paint the walls a lighter grey to envelope the space and then continue with grey tones to keep the contrast low.
When designing a monochromatic room it’s important to keep the hues varied and the furniture items slightly different. That way you end up with a cool and collected design as opposed to a boring and run-of-the-mill styled bedroom.
How to Accessorize
Starting with a patterned rug like the Seville in dove grey on the floor and then flanking the upholstered bed with large nightstands in a slightly darker shade help create that layered feel. I went even darker with the Kellen dresser to be able to stand up to the large bed and not get lost.
Since every room needs some color and life, I saw these beautiful Dupree lamps in a shimmery blue and thought they were perfect! They act like the jewelry to a great outfit finishing it off. I used a plaid chair in a similar blue to keep your eye moving around the room. Throw a turquoise pillow on the bed to complete the look and add a fiddle leaf fig (I always use a live plant in my designs) in the corner and you have a peaceful retreat made just for you!
