A guide to creating an urban and super cool bedroom

A guide to creating an urban and super cool bedroom

Our bedrooms are no longer just rest stops where we relax after a long, tiring day at work, only to wake up in an emergency and resume daily life. With the right furniture, color palette and decorations, our bedroom can become a peaceful haven where we catch up on our emails, watch our favorite web series and sometimes come up with brilliant ideas while lounging on our beds with our laptops.

Some bedrooms double as home offices – meaning most of us spend a significant portion of our lives in our bedrooms doing REAL WORK. That’s why creating the right kind of atmosphere with the right kind of pieces is essential. Here’s our little guide on how you can create a bedroom that’s as much a personal island as it is a comfortable place to sleep.

1: It always starts with bed
Of course, this is the starting point of your bedroom story. Your bed is the protagonist of your story – with that in mind, it should be a well-formed character to your interior story – meaning you should consider your room’s layout, practical needs and style preferences before focusing on a bed.

If you have the space, you can go for a master suite feel by choosing a larger-than-life piece – something like our Queen bed with stainless steel accents. If your bedroom is more of a multi-functional space that transforms into a guest room or den, nursery or home office in an instant – the Cubed sofa bed from Innovation Living will lend itself as both a high-impact and high-functioning piece.

2: Think utility
If, like us, you’re also BIG on that dreamy boutique hotel vibe, we suggest adding practical elements to the mix to keep it simple and stylish. Bookcases, table lamps, bedside tables, ottomans, benches, armchairs and loveseats. Along with your mainstay (bed), let practicality guide you when choosing other decorative accessories for your bedroom.

3: Outline a seating area
Whether space is a scarce resource or not, a bedroom that has a corner dedicated to a small seating ensemble always lends that inviting hotel appeal. As we said earlier – our bedrooms are more than just places where we stop to rest and catch our breath – we also do our professional work. So a comfortable seating ensemble consisting of a side table for your laptop and other essentials and a soft chair that offers a relaxing perch will be a great addition.

4: Doll on the dressing table
Here, you can let your personality shine – whether it’s flamboyant, formal, fun, or anything like that. Dress up the surface of your side table, nightstand or dresser with pieces that have the same effect on you as catnip has on a cat. Trinket boxes that look like books, an eccentric pair of tchotchkes, a gilded ship, or something that floats your boat. It would be super cool to create a vignette with some of your favorite trivia and have your own personal design moment.
