I love bedroom furniture that makes a bold statement in the room. It is especially fun to pick out eye catching bedroom furniture sets when you have these large master suites to work with. For this client's spacious bedroom, we knew that we would need to pick out sizable pieces that would fill the large empty space. Not only that, but we also wanted to have them be the star of the show against a neutral white paint palette in order to highlight the gorgeous architectural details like exposed wood beams on the ceiling and built in bookshelves around the stone fireplace. A wooden bed seemed like the natural choice to keep with this old world rustic theme. We picked this huge canopy bed to really anchor the design, then paired it with lovely tufted sofas to give the space more warmth and femininity.
Bedroom furniture is an absolute staple to any design because it can really set the tone of the room. When you decide to purchase bedroom sets in a matching suite or mix and match like we did in this master, it is important to ensure that each and every piece blends well with the foundational aspect of the space. These include any floor coverings or architectural detailing (such as the exposed beams and wood trim around the windows) as well as any inspiration pieces that you plan on always using in the space. You want everything including seating and bedside tables to be versatile enough to accommodate a variety of color palettes and design styles as your preferences may transform over the years; however, ensure that they match the unchanging elements of the room.
We were recently gifted new bedroom furniture and that inspired a complete makeover of the entire space (sorry hubby). We used to have very traditional cherry furniture, but swapped it out with this new contemporary furniture including a pottery barn upholstered headboard and these cool armchairs, and rustic tv stand. With such a different style furniture, I knew that our old bedding and paint color really wouldn't work. Luckily we were able to reuse our old king bed frame to save a little money (so I could spend more on our new linens!), and I repurposed some pieces that were previously in other rooms of the house. A simple and serine color palette combined with our new modern furniture made such a dramatic change, and I absolutely adore it.
Finding bedroom furniture that fits in small awkwardly shaped rooms can be quite challenging. When you are shopping for small bedroom furniture in particular, you may need to be willing to compromise on style and size in order to find pieces that fit well with the scale of the room. To be honest, it is very challenging to fit a King size bed into most limited floor plans without it overwhelming the space, but home owners are generally very reluctant to go to a smaller size bed. I am hear to tell you that a full or queen bed looks just as fantastic and luxurious, but will make you entire room seem much more spacious and balanced. If you do want to stick with larger pieces, I highly suggest choosing white bedroom furniture. This neutral shade will fade into the background and not overwhelm an already small space as much as bolder darker pieces would.
We just purchased this new colonial style bedroom furniture for our master and, although I love the way the pieces look in our large space, I worry that our current red and gold color palette ages it a bit too much. I know that king size bedroom sets always make a bold statement, primarily due to their large presence. I am wondering if this particular set would be better served covered in crisp white linens with a more subtle accent color like a navy or Wedgwood blue. I have always been partial to bedroom collections that feature those very serene shades so it may be time to upgrade our decor a bit. I think that the current color palette makes it look a bit too much like a historical museum rather than a modern home with touches of traditional decor.
I have always been a fan of statement bedroom furniture that really "wows" as soon as you walk in the door. This canopy style king size bed has been one of my favorite purchases so far because it is so stately and luxurious. It is one of those unforgettable pieces that really makes a room. I would definitely encourage people not to be afraid of making bold design statements with their furniture because, although the pieces themselves may be a bit pricier, you can get away with limiting the rest of your decor to let those unique items shine. That is exactly what I did in this room. I let the bed frame be the star of the show and then kept the linens fairly simple and monochromatic with just a few pops of color in the throw pillows.
