Designing for Function A bedroom needs to look good, yes. But that is not the only aim of the bedroom space. The crux here is to keep the bedroom as functional as possible while highlighting its focal points. Fireplaces, bay windows, built-in bookcases – these are all focal points in a bedroom. If your room doesn’t possess any of these, then you can easily create a focal point by using printed rugs, or a prominent art piece.
It is important to keep the traffic patterns open and directed towards the main focal point. You do not want your house guests tiptoeing around your furniture and hop skipping over your rugs to get to where they want to get to. Lighting and furniture should also be chosen accordingly, and a balance needs to be maintained between heavy and light, and high and low furniture pieces so that your home does not look too cluttered and there are open, breathable spaces.
Set the Right Mood This is part of the interior decoration project that can get a little tricky at times. ‘Mood’ is such a vague term that it is hard to define how exactly to go about ‘setting’ it. But one can always start with an inspiration piece. Anything can serve as a décor inspiration; from your favourite scarf to your favourite piece of wall décor. When you choose something that has special significance, you will find enough inspiration for themes, colour cues, and complementary texture and pattern ideas. You can also play around with mood lighting to create an ambience that befits your bedroom style.
Some of the popular patterns to play around with are plaids, stripes, and florals. One important thing to keep in mind while using different patterns in a single bedroom is to keep the colour palette similar so that you can avoid visual clutter.
Add your Personality Even with all the tips and tricks that we tell you, a bedroom will never be complete unless you add some of your own personality to it. One way to do this is by accessorising your bedroom with personal curious, souvenirs and photographs that reflect your life’s journey. Ideally, your accessories should complement the theme of your bedroom, but since we are talking about personal space here, you can afford to go a bit quirky and add fun childhood pictures as well. Use your walls and mantelpieces to display photographs, paintings, and other knick-knacks you may have collected over the years.
Talking of quirk, it is important to ensure that your house does not end up looking sterile and too pit-together by following all these guidelines. So, let your sense of whimsy take flight and get playful with your decorations. If you have a country cottage for instance, you can add colour with patterned rugs and throw pillows, or a brightly coloured accent wall that makes a difference.
