You drink organic coffee in the morning and make sure to fuel your body with pesticide-free produce during the day – but what happens when you lay your head down at night?
It is almost like a blank canvas that is waiting to be filled with personality and distinct identity. Color is a great way of doing this but make sure that you do not go overboard in this regard.
Have you heard about lamb “down” pillows and comforters as an alternative to fowl feathers which are often harvested in a way that is harmful to ducks and geese? Holy Lamb Organics produces its eco-wool comforters pillows and other bedding in the USA using exclusively organic cotton fabric and domestic wool local to the Pacific Northwest without the use of dyes chemicals or synthetic fillers.
So why is the sliding feature such an important aspect of the barn door? Apart from saving space at the entrance of the bedroom it also makes for an ideal closet door that simply slides shut when needed.
It is a great way to conceal the walk-in closet a small home office in the bedroom or a messy shelf without having to deal with the traditional doors that swing open. Many homeowners have put this to good use by using one large barn door for home workspaces and displays next to one another ensuring minimal wastage of space.
Elegant simple and beautiful; the unassuming charm of Scandinavian style draws us all in instantly. The classic Scandinavian design placed functionality above aesthetics and kept color to a bare minimum.
We absolutely love Scandinavian bedrooms that feature a nifty sleigh or platform bed as this instantly becomes the focal point of the room without trying too hard. You can build on this by adding an exposed brick wall that is painted white custom bedside pendants a few black and white posters and an understated nightstand (probably an upcycled piece from an old tree stump) to complete a truly relaxing nature-centric bedroom design that is distinctly Scandinavian.
The barn-style door is pretty easy to identify thanks to its use of heavy and often reclaimed wood. Even though there are modern variants that replace wood with glass steel and other materials we still prefer the classic and believe it is the best of the lot.
Styles such as coastal nautical and tropical are pretty close to one another and each one of them easily borrows from the other. Blue is a great color for all three of those themes and wall murals and decals inspired by ‘island life’ can further take the bedroom down the coastal route.
But not all fold-out beds need to transform into flat walls. If you’re looking for a way to maximize seating as well as sleeping space these sofa murphy beds from Montana Murphy Beds get both jobs done and even feature extra built-in storage on the sides.
It’s true that some wall beds can be cost-prohibitive but check out this version built by the folks over at Your Modern Family for under just $150. It took them about four hours using materials you can find readily available at the hardware store like 2X4s plywood and door hinges.
The Company Store’s luxurious 180-thread count organic shams duvet covers and sheets place just as much emphasis on comfort as they do on the quality of the organic cotton percale they’re made of. In addition to meeting Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS) they’re available in a bevy of soothing prints.
While green and blue are traditionally the two colors that work best in tropical bedrooms vibrant shades of orange and pink also blend in beautifully with this rich decorating style.
Many people picture hempy colors and bland textures when they think of organic cotton but Pottery Barn’s selection of organic bedding in designer patterns is proof that this couldn’t be further from the truth! In fact we gravitated towards their breezy palm and nautical navy rope designs before we even noticed that they were made of Oeko-Tex® certified organic cotton.
With more and more folks opting to live in cozier urban quarters murphy beds have been increasing in popularity as a way to fit all of the necessities of life into a studio apartment.
