The bedroom is a retreat. A place for relaxation, pampering and most of all sleep, its walls are often forgotten in tired wallpaper and outdated skirting boards. Make your bedroom inspirational with a new look – an exposed brick wall. Beautiful when distressed, there’s no need to fear their instantly-stylish and hardy exteriors. Give your room a Scandinavian twist, with a full brick wall behind the bed in red. Make your headboard one of brick, in natural, distressed or painted tones. Make your brick a feature wall in an eclectic room, levelling up to a rich and personal design. Take a look at our top forty brick picks.
Victorian panelling backgrounds this bedroom, marked by quirky erotic box art. Brown and beige bedding breaks the monochrome beside a potted plant. Wood works well with monochromes. Wood in a bed frame, side chest and feature art piece helps to ground white bedding and a black and white print. Don’t be afraid of a black feature wall. This space pulls it off, with an abstract art print, boxed white furniture and grey gingham bedding to set the scene.
While low beds are famously associated with Japanese design, they‘re beginning to catch on in modern design circles - and for those whose knees can handle them, low beds have several benefits. First, starting the day with a deep stretch and mild workout can get the blood pumping to fight off grogginess, and the cool temperature near the floor is a major plus for hot sleepers. Some small bedrooms can gain a sense of spaciousness from a low-profile look. And if storage isn‘t a concern, removing empty space means one less place for dust to settle. Check out the inspirational beds below for even more reasons to consider going low!
