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.
With that in mind we have another lovely collection of kids’ bedrooms today and this time we delve into a style that allows you to use vivacious color diverse textures and loads of playfulness. It’s time to go tropical!
Even the most minimal of modern bedrooms will benefit from the sheer warmth and contrast that the barn door offers. Acting as a cool transition between the master bedroom and the bathroom the barn-style door easily stands out thanks to its uniqueness and the neutral backdrops that most modern bedrooms use.
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.
A popular misconception among design enthusiasts is that the barn door is only suitable for bedrooms with a rustic or farmhouse flair. In fact this is exactly opposite of the truth and these gorgeous wooden wonders look even more appealing when they slide their way into contemporary bedrooms.
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.
Shades of gray enhance this seemingly monochromatic look and give the posh minimal Scandinavian bedroom a more contemporary and sophisticated aura. Complement this approach by using simple straight lines sleek floating shelves and wardrobes that disappear into the pale background for a dream bedroom!
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.
