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.
The bed is the center piece of the bedroom, it’s the biggest piece of furniture that draws the eye, therefore it’s important that you find one which suits the design of the room and one which catches the eye. Danish beds do just this. Complement the Danish bed with an uncluttered, bright, organized room for maximum effect. We’ve seen a rise in ethnic prints over the past few years, but this trend is more specific: Moroccan. Morocco, placed up in the north west of Africa has penetrated the design world with its unique patterns and designs. Look for Moroccan patterns on canvas prints, puffs, curtains, sheers, bed and upholstery coverings. There are all additions to a room which are easy to implement yet strikingly powerful in their impact, offering maximum effect for time invested. This isn’t going to be a trend for everybody, but it’ll be noticeable and seen throughout 2014.
