The bedroom; one of the most sacred rooms of the house and one of the rooms where we spend the most time (even if it is to merely sleep). It can also be one of the few room where you can design and decorate it to meet your particular tastes, and not have to worry what Tom, Dick and Harry thinks, as they’ll never see it. For couples, there needs to be a balance, a juggling act, sacrificing personal extremes and coming to an agreement on a design that works for both. It just so happens the bedroom is the first environment we are subjected to when our eyes open and it is also the last image which we have when falling asleep. A few of us here are interested in psychology and we believe a healthy way to start the day is to wake up in a bedroom environment which stimulates positive mental energy, which is the perfect springboard to Carpe Diem the day with true passion and gusto.
Extravegant and flamboyant floral wall art is fresh. There is something refreshing about the beauty of natural flowers (without wanting to sound too flowery). If you are a person who appreciates the intricacies and facinations of living world, a large wall painting or print could add that inspirational edge which your bedroom has lacked. Our personal preference is a professionally hand painted piece, however this comes at a price. Large prints are an acceptable alternative; so long as what you choose give you an extra bounce in your spirit when you look at it. Look for off blacks, grays and whites, all rolling back into each other like the greens of a forest fold back into each green. Take a visit to any of the interior design or trade fairs this year and you’ll see this color palette prevalent amongst vendors. Popular amongst vendors means in demand from customers, which means this will be one of the trends of 2014.
