When choosing a good bed, you want something built to last. For this reason, many people opt for a wooden bed as it’s a reliable, sound investment. Wood won’t rust, bend or crack. Plus, this material is timeless, so your room’s interior won’t easily date. While a wooden bed is considered a classic, the styles available go way beyond the traditional.
In a bedroom, a winning combo is wood with white. It’s calm, clean and organic, making for a room ready for respite from daily stresses. You can tweak and personalise this aesthetic, of course, with other bedroom furniture and décor items.
Add black-and-white, graphic prints and cushions with bold geometric prints for classic sophistication. Or you could go ethnic. Top your white bed sheets and pillows with tribal-print bed covers and statement cushions. Then carry the theme through with bold pops of colour on an upholstered pouf or end-of-bed bench. Be sure to add some lush living or faux plants for extra earthiness.
If you’re splurging on a luxury bed, you may want to pair your wood-and-white base look with touches of glamour. A colour scheme of silvers and greys is sophisticated and soothing. Think metallic accents such as a statement pendant light and throws with a subtle sheen. Is gold more your thing? Gilded items to consider include having an ornate gold mirror above your vanity table, with golden drawer handles on the vanity itself.
If you’re considering dark wood furniture in your bedroom, go for off-whites or blues for a calming colour scheme. If organic, tropical vibes are what you’re after, go with greens. Or, to amp up the cosy factor, choose browns or charcoals.
