Your bedroom should be a place to relax and unwind. And while your master bedroom's design can have a major effect on resale value, it's also a space that is primarily for you so it's important that you create a space that you'll love.
We continue sharing ideas for decorating your personal feminine spaces, and today we'll have a look at bathrooms. A bathroom is like a sanctuary: there you wash all the cares away, relax taking a bath, enjoy your home spa procedures and so on. I think, a bathroom for a girl is as special as a bedroom, and you should create your own relaxation oasis with style and in the colors you like.
While there certainly was a time when the home kitchen was seen as the domain of women, that's far from the case today. From self-sufficient bachelors to egalitarian couples to wannabe celebrity chefs, more men than ever are cooking for themselves and for their loved ones. Of course, not many of these men want their kitchens covered in pictures of kittens in chef's hats or even the bright, spastic yellows or quaint ginghams of "country chic" and designers are catching on. These modern kitchens are sleek and ready for any style-conscious man to get to work.
A contemporary atmosphere is hidden in the details. For an exhilarating effect,choose an open canopy bed to go with your large windows. This way the light can flow freely and flood every corner of the room without interruption, just like the example above, designed by Cleare Interiors.
Sometimes choosing a theme for a room can be the best inspiration for getting it to feel exactly how you'd like it. For bedrooms, one great theme is going with a country vibe that will make you forget the bustle of life outside the bedroom door. Keep the walls sunny and bright by choosing a pale yellow paint color and decorate with landscape photographs and light wooden furniture. Use antique touches, like a delicate chandelier and curvy nightstands to make sure the room doesn't feel too old-fashioned or frumpy.
Extravegant and flamboyant floral wall art is fresh. There is something refreshing about the beauty of natural flowers (without wanting to sound too flowery). If you are a person who appreciates the intricacies and facinations of living world, a large wall painting or print could add that inspirational edge which your bedroom has lacked. Our personal preference is a professionally hand painted piece, however this comes at a price. Large prints are an acceptable alternative; so long as what you choose give you an extra bounce in your spirit when you look at it.
Tranquility can be found in this understated bathroom. The window looks out on the peaceful scenery. Traditional carpets are placed on a wood planked floor. The rectangular freestanding tub sits next to a marble wall opposite a double sink bathroom vanity. These grey concrete walls border a sleek bathroom with marble vanity and round vessel sink. The shower features a teak wood floor. The ceiling is open and this is where greenery encroaches upon the room. This look keeps it simple with both grey and taupe tile surrounding the bathroom. A rainfall showerhead keeps with the straight lines of the entire design.
Cool greys and creamy whites are the perfect calming influence for this modern kitchen. The pops of yellow in the cabinets and backsplash of this kitchen make it extra welcoming. Done the wrong way, wood paneled cabinets can look kitschy, but the horizontal grain in this kitchen are elegant and sleek. Keeping the shelving in the island open in this sunny kitchen make the whole room feel bigger.
We all need a little industrial chic in our lives. The tray top is removable for when you crave breakfast in bed. The table, available in an antique bronze or brass finish, works well as a nightstand for a small space because it can be folded up and stored when not needed.
Don't be afraid to get creative; consider side tables or end tables as options. A Moroccan pouf or cube ottoman with a tray on top also are alternatives to traditional nightstands. Finally, keep in mind your mattress height; you'll want to make sure your table isn't too high or low.
