What comes to mind when you think of a bedroom fit for royalty? It’s probably a veritable Tudor-scape anchored by an enormous tester bed and a behemoth of a headboard draped in cloth of gold, its folds dripping onto piles and piles of sumptuous bedding and overstuffed pillows.
Exit the time machine now. You’re not a princess looking for a pea, but you can have a bedroom made for a monarch. Wake up your personal space with the master bedroom of your dreams.
Give your bedroom the royal treatment.
You spend nearly half of your life sleeping. Why fall victim to the notion that the bedroom is the last place where you need to worry about interior design? If you really want a restful space and a beautiful retreat, give this room the attention it deserves. Today’s inspirations include gorgeous beds, stunning headboards and deluxe bedding that can turn a room with a bed into a room with a view. Collections range from spare and modern to time-tested traditional, depending on your individual taste.
Create a balance between comfort and aesthetics.
A beautiful bedroom design may tempt you into calling it a night, but when it comes to getting a deep night’s sleep, looks just aren’t enough. You should love the appearance of your bedding first and foremost, but before purchasing, make sure to take factors such as thread count (for sheets) and type of material (for blankets and comforters) into consideration.
Let your colors do the anchoring, and let your patterns and pieces bring everything together.
Beckoning bedrooms beg for accents. Anchor your look with the color palette of your choice while keeping in mind that some shades are more restful than others. Select two or three tones, and bring them to life in pillow shams, throw pillows, window treatments or bench throws. Have fun with patterns on smaller accents, and don’t forget the possibilities of upholstery. Consider an upholstered headboard, or reupholster a chair or footstool to unite your look. Keep form and function on equal ground. Consider furniture that can catch your eye while stashing your stuff—storage might not be the bedroom’s sexiest need, but it’s a need nonetheless.
