In a recent post we explored the world of chairs and other seating arrangements. Our reasoning was simple: if we spend most of our time sitting at home, why not do it in style and comfort?
So it follows logically that if we consume several hours a day sleeping, it should be in a room that's comfortable, enjoyable, practical, and tailored to the individuals who occupy it.
Couples, kids or bachelors—we have 8 incredible bedrooms that'll make you want to stretch out your arms and fall backwards into the lap of luxury for a long, peaceful nap.
1. Richly Decadent
Have you ever seen a bedroom more lavish? The gorgeous shimmer of its curtains, the dark, almost seductive colour of its walls and floors, the gentility of its chandelier, and of course the opulence of its bed—all of these combine to make this room the archetype of luxury living.
Because its dark palette evoke a sense of intimacy and desire, this bedroom is perfect for couples with a taste for antique grandeur.
2. Lofty Spaces
But perhaps the first item was too extravagant and you prefer something more modern, more edgy? Look no further than these two rooms, both of which are unique in their own way but occupy the same home.
The first example is very bare-boned and austere, like something you'd find in a New York loft, while the second is more contemporary and stylish.
While the aesthetics are pleasing, their simple design makes both rooms conducive to peace and solitude, ideal for young couples or single bachelors.
3. Bright & Bouncy
If opulence and modern austerity aren't for you, then perhaps this lively and cheerful bedroom is?
With its vivid blue palette, open closet design, large mirror and disco-ball type chandelier, this living space is a great fit for young single women or couples who just want to have fun and party.
The bed appears enormously comfortable while its sheets compliment both the room's overall colour scheme and its spirited tone.
4. Eclectic Mash-up
Everything about this bedroom suggests that it's inhabited by a teenager. From the artful lights and hanging mirror, from tea cups and ballet shoes to stuffed animals, this bold mix of decor choices is best suited to teenage girls with a flair for art.
Like its owner, this room has its own distinct personality: the palette of soft pinks and purple may indicate feminine sensibility, but the bizarre curtains and untidy floor hints at rebelliousness.
This room belongs to an Amazonian princess.
5. Pink Palace
Speaking of princesses, this room is home to two of them. The abundance of pinks (walls, curtains, bed sheets, floor mat) makes this a palace fit for any pre-teen girl.
The whole point of a kid's room is to make it more fun than functional, which explains the bright colours, the overhanging leaf canopy on the beds, and the adorable koalas on the lights.
When kids have a room this fun, they'll want to spend as much time in it as possible.
6. Prince's Playground
We've looked at a room for little princesses, so it's only fair we have something for your little prince.
The race-car bed, construction wallpaper, and the use of blues rather than pinks makes this room a delight for any young boy.
The inclusion of a simple flowering plant and elegant shelves add a touch of refinement to the room, while the alphabet floor mat is both cute and functional, teaching your child his colours and letters.
7. Off-beat & Unusual
Why should kids have all the fun? This daring choice of decor combines comfort with creativity.
The luxurious and comfortable bed shows the room's practical side, while the wall-mounted art parodies famous painters. Large mirrors and a ceiling fan add functionality, while the deep purple colour scheme shows a more frivolous side.
Perfect for young couples who want a mix of fun and function.
8. Simply Luxurious
We've seen bedrooms with old-fashioned opulence, industrial austerity, and modern frivolity, so why not end on a note of understated elegance?
This gorgeous item shows a sophisticated colour palette of warm beiges and browns, tasteful art for a splash of colour, and a clean, uncluttered look.
With its comfy bed and absence of TVs, stereos and other modern appliances, this room is suited to modern couples who favor intimacy and style over bold decor statements.
8 bedrooms. Some are best suited to couples, bachelors, teens or kids, but all of them are unique, functional and beautiful in their own way.
