Our bedroom is the intimate living space we all need. This is where we sleep and dream, we hide or watch a movie without anyone bothering us (well, most of the time anyway). Subsequently, when it comes to designing your bedroom, you have the real opportunity to design it to accord to that exact need of intimacy, privacy and your own touch of personality. If you are the type who likes to spend long periods of the morning -or early afternoon- in the bedroom, then you’ll want to make the place as atmospherically and sensorially calming as possible; light and pale colours of paint and fabrics about the room usually give a pleasing effect in the morning and make for a relaxed environment when kissed with sunlight. For those who like to have a lie in but have to force themselves out of bed of a morning, then a relaxing morning atmosphere might actually be counter productive.
Let’s have a look at some very different bedroom designs, to get those juices flowing!
The implementation of rustic furnitures with the sleek, angular borders, that divide colour and material on each structural surface of this room design, brings rustic into the modern day. The entire room is an very interesting mixture of styles and layouts -should you wish to have a look, click here.
The bedroom faces a display of plants, in a loft conversion, and behind the bedstead is a walk in wardrobe. A mixture of style and practicality that may well adhere to the needs of professionals.

For lovers of the luxurious, we have this design, from Ambience Home Design SL. The LED ceiling lighting plays well off the deeper colours of the curtains, bed and carpet, and the wall mounted lights draw light away from the bed; creating a very intimate, and ultimately, effective, mood for a bedroom. The plush textiles and surfaces of the design, too, add to the luxurious feel of the place and strikes one as a space that would thrive in the evening.
This design screams individuality. The integration of the natural surface of the support beam with the decorative, wood laminate flooring gives the whole room a good deal of personality and the amount of natural light taken by the window adds to the feel of it being an individual space. The featuring of these, fairly rustic, structural elements go well with the retro feature wall and light fittings to further enhance the rooms singularity.
A futuristic bedroom design here, from Octavio Mestre. Flooded with white and soft colours, we see an extremely minimalist approach to all items of furniture, strong manipulation of natural light and a good and clean differentiation in colour throughout the room. This bedroom, because of this, would be a dream scenario for a sleepy Saturday morning: bathed in light from the sun and the, non-aggressive, surrounding colours, staring out of the window and watching the day begin.
At some stage, I’m sure we’ve all wanted a four poster bed. Here’s a rugged example of how to integrate one into a style fusion. We particularly like the use of this old restored barrel in the room.
