Laurent. Bedroom. September 15th , 2017.
The Rainbow room, every colour under the sun helps spell out H-A-P-P-Y in this fun, glorious room. Coordination? We’re having none of it – just throw everything into the mix and enjoy the result. After all, life’s too short to worry. Moody blue, soft grey walls, shadows moving across the bed, trompe l’oeil wallpaper, this space has hidden depths. Check out the iconic table lamp sitting behind the padded headboard (how do they do that?) and the egg-shaped chair that is defiantly mid-century modern. Maybe a masked avenger sleeps here.
There are many ways to make the most of that dead space under the stairs – playrooms, storage solutions or even shelving. But a proud pet owner in the states has blown all of the above out of the water with this: a fully functioning dog bedroom, complete with kennel-style entrance, hat rack and luxurious golden bed. We’ve seen some amazing dog houses in our time, but this one really takes the dog biscuit. Yes, we have reached peak pets, people.
Alpine lodge, après-ski anyone? Well, who wouldn’t if you had a place like this to come back to after a day on the slopes. Materials matter most here, with reclaimed wood, a concrete console and that fab faux-fur throw. When it gets too hot, just slide open those doors and chill. Princess in the tower, remodelling a loft space is commonplace, but this attic conversion takes the design to new heights. No plaster ceiling boards here – the living space stretches up to the eaves. And, to add an offbeat element to the contemporary interior, the Gothic-style screen is perfect for hiding behind before your prince turns up for his kiss. Mwahh!
Easy living, if space allows, introduce a living room feel into your bedroom for the ultimate in hotel boudoir chic. Chairs, upholstered ottomans, artwork, books and treasured collections in a zoned area will create a mini sitting area and add a touch of cosiness. In this scheme an antique dresser painted in a dramatic black provides a natural focus. ‘No matter how small your bedroom is, a chair is always practical,’ says Nicola Holden of Nicola Holden Designs. ‘If it causes too much clutter, consider plumping for something like the unobtrusive Ghost chair by Philippe Starck. Choose hard-working furniture such as ottomans and chests of drawers, and don’t neglect forgotten areas such as those above a door, where built-in shelving can look effective.
