Of all the spaces in your home, the bedroom is undoubtedly the one place where you can fully and freely be yourself without any inhibitions. It is a safe and comfortable haven and the perfect bedroom is all about finding what works for you best. Beyond the obvious like a cozy bed and a lovely color scheme, there are little details that make your bedroom a lot more pleasant and functional. A smart nightstand is definitely on the top of this list. Beside tables come in a wide range of forms and the more minimal nightstands tend to cut back on excesses even while saving space.
Suspended furniture is always a viable solution. The functionality of mini-shelves hanging on the wall is undeniable, they can serve for books and for cosmetics, documents or other decorative objects. One last thing you should consider. The space under the bed shouldn’t be overlooked. There’s where you can “hide” boxes of all sorts and baskets with lots of things inside.
When top designers across the world are getting creating with pendant and bedside lamp designs, why should you fall behind when it comes to using them in the bedroom! Get creating this spring and summer by combining a table lamp on one side of the bed with pendant light or floor lamp on the other to paint of picture of quirky contrast. LED strip lighting that is built into the bed frame is also a fun option for those who do not want too much accent of task lighting and would prefer a more moody, romantic bedroom.
One of the biggest perks of a live-edge headboard is the exclusivity that it brings to the bedroom. If you are really good with DIY skills (say intermediate-level skills), then crafting a stunning piece of headboard from a slab of wood is barely an issue. It is a DIY project that you can easily try out at home. The hardest part is of course finding that mesmerizing slab of wood that you absolutely adore. Once that is done, everything else becomes a whole lot easier. If you really are not the DIY type, then you can even order a one-of-a-kind bed with a live-edge wood frame and headboard from sites like Anthropologie.
A lot of people misinterpret color for something definitely ‘bold’, but that is far from the truth. You can bring a colorful bed frame and headboard into your bedroom without actually splurging on a whole lot of vivaciousness! Pick out a bed frame in orange, red or even purple, but in a lighter tone and with a matte finish. These chic and smart beds are ideal for bedrooms with styles varying from shabby chic, modern, minimal and contemporary to something as extravagant as Hollywood Regency and retro. Once again, make sure you choose the right headboard as this makes or breaks the look of the room in an instant.
This is undoubtedly the biggest reason why people are so head over heels about the live-edge headboard. It brings a certain rustic vibe to the contemporary bedroom, and you get this without a complete makeover that costs a fortune. If modern rustic is your style, then the natural-edge headboard seems like almost a must at this point! Apart from seamlessly blending with contemporary styles, it also gives you great design flexibility and lets you switch to a ‘completely rustic or farmhouse’ mode with ease. Add to it styles such as industrial, bohemian and shabby chic that also invite the slab headboard gleefully, and you have a plethora of styles to choose from.
