What are the main ingredients needed to create an aesthetically pleasing and tranquil bedroom? Here are some tips.
Color and Design
Your choice of paint or wallpaper is important in creating a room that provides you with the setting that suits you best. Rich tones and neutral colors provide the warmest atmosphere. Minimal color gives a light and airy feel - you can always accent with brightly colored art and accessories. Texture, color and pattern will result in a more bohemian styled room. Flooring should be soft or natural.
The textiles in your bedroom are one of the most important aspects of your comfort. Fabric that is directly in contact with your skin should soothe. For this, natural fibers are your best choice. The breathability of Cotton, Wool, and Linen is unsurpassed and this is Brahms Mount’s greatest contribution to the bedroom. Our blankets and throws are woven in calming and interesting patterns. Our natural fiber yarns are spun specifically for us to provide the best possible reaction when touched. Be sure to research pleasing sheets and the right pillows for under your head!
The lighting in a bedroom should not be too luminous. It should be gentle on the eyes while providing sufficient visibility. Lighting emphasizes paint color, flooring and design detail. It sets a mood and greatly affects your comfort. A task light is usually a table lamp. This is best for reading and activities where direct lighting is required. Overhead illumination for the entire room is your ambient lighting, often on a dimmer switch to adjust for a cozy glow. Floor lamps that cast light toward the ceiling offer indirect lighting without spotlighting any one thing. Spotlights are for accenting a piece of art or an architectural detail in the room.
Window CoveringNatural light is wonderful, however sometimes we want to close out the light. Window covering can help to adjust the quality and quantity. Mini-blinds are a wonderful way to control lighting
Furniture is one of the most important aspects to your comfort as your body is in direct contact with it - especially your mattress. Be sure to research your choices carefully. There are many types available offering different firmness and varying types of construction. Beautiful bed-frames can be accompanied by matching headboards: carved wood, iron with ornate scrollwork and fabric-covered. Consider these design aspects when making your choices and how they pair with seating and nightstands (your bedside assistant)!
