When the winter weather starts to set in, the call to spend our days curled up in bed is pretty strong. But alas, we have stuff to do. So we do a bit of vicarious lazing and gaze through our monitors at dreamy bedrooms the world over.
With lofty ceilings, a luxurious four poster bed, and a crystal chandelier we wouldn’t mind waking up in this bedroom just outside Skövde in Sweden. The white ceiling and bleached out floorboard create such an open, airy atmosphere, and the antique riding tack and suitcases bring it down to earth. The overall look is the perfect mix of polished and rustic. See the full feature on My Scandinavian Home.
Another country, another covetable four-poster bed. This simple, but bold bedroom is in Craig Miller-Randall’s 1920s print factory conversion in Melbourne, which he’s decked out in a modern Australian twist on Scandinavian style. Note: when in doubt add more cushions! Check out the rest of the home at Inside Out.
There’s nothing minimalist about this intricately decorated bedroom. Black walls might seem like a bold choice, and while they can make a room feel smaller, when styled right they make all the other elements pop. In this case the white cupboards and accents lighten everything up, and end end result is eccentric and regal. Not into black? Domino has plenty of interesting bedroom paint colour ideas.
This grey and charcoal bedroom is masculine and elegant. Natural elements are brought into the scheme with the textured rug, potted plants, and well chosen landscape painting. There’s a lot of personality in the details without overwhelming the space, and the end feeling is a relaxed one. See more at MyDomaine.
Finishing on a bright note! Southern California designer Betsy Ginn gave her childhood bed new life with a lick of sunny yellow paint. Add some patterned pillows, and it feels like summer all year long in that bedroom. See the rest of her home on Design Sponge.
