When Darryl Kerrigan from the popular 90s Australian film ‘The Castle’ uttered the memorably poignant phrase “a man’s home is his castle” surely he was remiss in adding a crucial caveat: that the most important place within said castle is undoubtedly the bedroom. Our bedrooms are our relaxation stations, where we refuel, refresh and take a moment from our hectic and busy schedules to reinvigorate our minds and bodies and begin a new day revived and energised. It is for this reason the bedroom must exist as a space with style, plentiful in tranquil ambiance and replete with comfort and luxury. Moreover, when designing a bedroom space, it is often prudent to incorporate luxurious elements to enhance the area, and transform it from simple sleeping quarters into master bedroom suites fit for royalty. Check out the following envy-inducing and outrageously lavish master bedroom suites that will undeniably, and in true Darryl Kerrigan style, have you remarking ‘How’s the serenity?’

This loft bedroom incorporates a sleeping space, bathroom and dressing room whilst maintaining a degree of openness and freshness.

If your bedroom is as stylish as this one, why not show it off? This wonderful apartment has utilised a smaller space but ensured the space does not feel as such by separating the rooms with a glass wall. This allows the area a sense of space and movement, whilst ensuring it is not a studio apartment and provides privacy for the bedroom through the possibility of curtains.

Stylish small space

If you are working with a small space, you needn’t be without an impressive master suite—this room uses a small area with several touches that ensure it is functional, practical but above all, stylish. The dressing table is adorned with dressing room illuminated mirror, and the walk-in wardrobe is not fitted with a door but a heavy drape instead, which brings an extra element of luxury and softness to the space. Neutral tones keep the spaciousness and simplicity of the room, whilst the soft timber tones bring comfort and cosiness against the contemporary furniture.
