Four months ago, we had the interior of our home painted. When they painted, they did our master bedroom a lovely shade of blue. A blue that I chose myself. Because the room’s color scheme was blues, white and yellows.
Except the blue came out…different…that I thought it would. It’s not BAD, but it’s quite a bit more…vibrant…than I was planning on.
This has created a project for me: a complete redo of our master bedroom. (You can stop laughing now.) Thankfully the furniture has been ordered, and the bedding, as well, but NOW it’s the actual decor I’ll be working on. Since I’m transforming MY space, I thought today might be a good day to chat about that!
When seeking inspiration for your bedroom, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a style that’s more timeless than modernism.
A modern bedroom can be many things. It’s sleek and trendy, minimalist and effortless, and luxurious and elegant. In the context of design, modernism is primarily characterized by clean lines and shapes, functionality, and a polished aesthetic. But the trick to creating the modern bedroom of your dreams is simple enough — just incorporate the elements that resonate with you.
From ensuring you have the best memory foam mattress in place to repurposing furniture, these five modern bedroom ideas will inspire you to create a space that transcends time.
1. Create an Accent Wall
The walls say it all. The best way to add a personal touch to your modern bedroom is with an accent wall. You can paint one wall in your bedroom a different color, apply a patterned wallpaper, or even venture outside your comfort zone and add an exposed brick wall.
If you are feeling easily worn-out these days, you’re probably not getting enough sleep. Getting proper rest is important at any age – even your children need sleep and so do you! Without sleep, your energy plummets, which means “goodbye productivity”. And I don’t know about you, but I can’t have that!
One of the reasons why you’re not getting that much-deserved rest could be because of your bedroom conditions. It is important that you make your bedroom conducive for sleeping. Ever thought about that before?
Everyone loves a room with good lighting – natural lighting at its best. However, this could also be the reason why you’re rising earlier than usual. The light that floods your room signals your body to wake up. You will wake up whether you like it or not.
Due to the fact that our house is currently on the market, we’ve been looking at a few different houses to move into next, as you can imagine. And I’ve got to say, as I look at these houses, if there’s one thing that just drives me up the wall, it’s a small bedroom jam packed with HUGE pieces of furniture. So overwhelming. I can’t stand it!
So when blogger Christopher Austin reached out to me with a post about styling a small bedroom to make it LOOK larger, I knew a few people I wanted to share it with right off the bat! HA! But mostly, I knew it was a great post I wanted to share with all of YOU! Here’s a few fantastic ideas from Christopher!
Just because you have a small bedroom, doesn’t mean you can’t style it to look spacious, airy and welcoming. The key is to design smart. The right color blends, the best accessories, and organizing the furniture properly are fundamental aspects you need to take into consideration when decorating a small bedroom. Size doesn’t matter, good design skills do. Here are some guidelines to help you decorate your small space in style.
Settling on a smart color palette
First thing’s first. If you have a small bedroom and the goal is to make it look bigger, you should settle on some priorities. Light, pastel colors and a white ceiling are fundamental aspects to take into consideration. The white of the ceiling will add height, and the beautiful pastels on the walls will create an air of freshness and light. Baby blue, pale pink, pastel mint are shades that work best in small rooms.
Did you play with any fantastic Lego toys growing up? I did, but they weren’t nearly as big of a deal then as they are now! I mean, my goodness – not 45 minutes away from my house there’s a theme park called Legoland!
There are 2,200 different elements of Legos (or types of pieces)
Approximately 19 BILLION Lego elements are manufactured each year, or, 2 million per hour, or, 36,000 per minute
Lego elements come in 55 different colors
Lego bricks are made in Billund, Denmark
Interesting, eh? I know a LOT of kids who are VERY interested in Legos these days, and I’m sure mine will be soon enough, so when Jenny from Terry’s Fabrics contacted me with an infographic full of ideas on how to turn a kid’s bedroom into something magically Lego-themed, I figured you all would want to see this!
First of all, Happy 4th of July, everyone! I hope you have a wonderful and SAFE celebration with your family and friends!
I’ve been working on finishing up the redo of our Master Bedroom; I want to make sure it’s all done and set for the two tiny people who will be invading our house later this summer. In my mind, that’s ticking off all the things I had on my little to-do list, and making sure when I walk into the room, I feel a sense of peace and accomplishment.
So when Sadia Suhail contacted me regarding feng shui tips for a bedroom, I was intrigued! I know a tiny bit about feng shui, but nothing to write home about. I was interested to see how accurately “peaceful” our master bedroom was turning out. (News flash: looks like I need to do some work on it! HA!) Check out Sadia’s REAL feng shui tips!
Your bedroom should be a sweet haven where you can relax and recharge your batteries after a stressful day. Feng shui can help you create an amiable and tranquil atmosphere in your bedroom where you can revitalize or get romantic with your partner. Feng shui your bedroom with the following steps to improve the flow of positive energy for a harmonious and a balanced environment.
A bedroom is a place which doesn’t require a lot of active energy. Hence, it should be located at the back of your house away from the noisy and highly energetic areas. This will aid in laying the foundation of a peaceful and serene retreat. The bedroom shouldn’t be too large as it makes you feel less in control of your surroundings. It shouldn’t be too small either to hinder the flow of positive energy.
