5 Theme Suggestions for your Bedroom

The bedroom is the one room in the house where your personal taste is all that counts, and with comfort high on your list of priorities, your bedroom should be a place for rest and relaxation. Your bedroom can be themed as you like and the décor does not have to match the rest of the home, allowing you to focus on your own design ideas.  If you are planning to renovate your master bedroom and are in need of some ideas, here are a few popular bed room themes to base your design on.

The Vintage Bedroom Theme – A nice wrought iron bed would be the ideal starting point for a vintage themed room, and with select vintage bedroom furniture, you can create a unique style that can include a few modern accessories. When looking at furniture, vintage is anything older than 20 years, but not more than a century, and by forging an alliance with a local antique dealer, you can source items with ease. Paint can be effectively used to brighten up vintage furniture, with a range of colours to achieve a balanced look.

The Country Cottage Look – White is the primary colour for a cottage style bedroom, with perhaps some flowery wallpaper to contrast, while yellow and oatmeal are excellent colour choices. A pine four poster bed is the perfect way to set the scene, with white lace drop down curtains to add to the rustic atmosphere. Pine furniture also works in such a setting, with either a clear varnish or white enamel paint, and let’s not forget dried flowers and plants, which add a splash of nature.

The Classic French Boudoir – The boudoir was traditionally a room that adjoins a woman’s bedroom, yet many people opt for this look in their bedroom. Soft, natural colours work well, with splashes of lilac, violet and shades of light blue, as well as a variety of beiges and browns to give the room an earthy feel. An elegant French walnut bed would certainly take the pride of place in such a room design, or something from the Louis XV period that is equally splendid. There are a few classic French bedroom images that might be just what you had in mind.

The Futuristic Bedroom – For lovers of modern furniture, why not opt for a futuristic looking bedroom? A floor-level bed that is slightly raised would set the scene, along with seamless and streamlined wardrobes and cabinets, with matching side tables to house the many gadgets you can add to a futuristic bedroom.

Victorian Bedroom – Brass and iron blend together in a stylish Victorian double bed, with walnut or mahogany dressers complete with brass handles. Mahogany beds from the same period offer an alternative and with a thick quilt covering and some antique rugs, the look is complete. A porcelain chamber bowl can be added for good effect, as can a Victorian sink unit, and with heavy curtains, your bedroom will have a cosy and inviting ambience.

Whatever theme you choose, sourcing vintage and antique bedroom furniture is much easier when using an online antique dealer, who can help you to acquire the right pieces at an affordable price.

Seven Tips to Help You Create the Ultimate Closet Space in Your Master Bedroom

Your master bedroom is meant to be your retreat, your place to get away from it all and just relax. Of course, in order for that to happen, it needs to feel like a comfortable, welcoming, and organised space. This brings us to one of the most common complaints homeowners have, not just about the master bedroom, but their house in general, and that’s a lack of useable storage space. If your master bedroom closet just isn’t cutting it and your items are constantly spilling out into the room, then it’s time for a serious closet renovation.

Seven Tips to Help You Create the Ultimate Closet Space in Your Master Bedroom

Here’s a look at seven useful and practical tips that can help you create the ultimate closet space in your master bedroom.

Install Sliding Wardrobe Doors

This tip will not only ensure that your closet has doors on it, but does so in a way that acts as a space saver in the bedroom. If your room isn’t exactly massive, then sliding wardrobe doors make a whole lot more sense. Savoy Timber DIY projects include doors just like this, as they feature a selection of sliding wardrobe door kits that are easy to install. Choose from glass doors, mirror doors, wood effect doors, and more. You can actually make the doors part of the design of the room and have them act as décor.

Think About What You Plan to Store in Your Closet

Before you start ripping apart the closet, it’s also wise to think about what function you need it to serve. What do you plan on storing in the closet? Some people use it strictly for hanging clothes whereas others also use it for storing shoes, purses, folded sweaters, etc. Once you have a specific idea in mind, then you can come up with a customised design plan.

Is There Anything that Doesn’t Need to Be in the Closet?

Another tip is to remove items that really don’t need to be stored in your closet and find another home for them. When your closet is over-stuffed, it will feel cluttered, and that makes it a whole lot harder to find the items you want. For example, maybe you are storing jackets in the closet when they aren’t in season. Instead look for another way to store them such as a vacuum seal bag that you can slide under the bed, or move them to another closet in the house.

Get Rid of Items You Don’t Wear

While you’re in the process of emptying out your closet, this is also the perfect time to make a pile of things you no longer want and/or wear. These can be donated and passed along, which will in turn free up space in your closet.

Measure Twice, Buy Once

Of course, another tip is to make sure that you measure twice so that you don’t make any mistakes and end up buying storage solutions that don’t fit. It’s always wise to take an extra moment and check that you’ve written down the right measurements.

Seven Tips to Help You Create the Ultimate Closet Space in Your Master Bedroom

Use a Variety of Storage Solutions

Often, the best design is usually a combination of multiple storage solutions. Rather than just having a straight rod that extends from one side of the closet to the other, consider mixing it up and installing a double tier rod, using shelves in the middle, and even storage boxes. You want to make use of all the space available and typically that means using a variety of ideas.

Don’t forget that your closet door can also offer more storage as there are over-the-door shoe racks that can be used for shoes of course, or accessories. These racks are ideal for storing things like scarves, belts, and jewellery.

If you end up installing shelving that is high and hard to reach, then look for a small collapsible foot stool that you can keep in the closet. This will make it much easier to access the items in a safe and speedy manner.

Keep the Most Used Items Front and Centre

As you put all your items into your closet and in the various storage areas, it’s also wise to think about what the most-used items are. Those should be front and centre so you don’t feel as though you’re digging for them. You can push the less-used items to the back corners. Now, keep in mind you may need to change this around throughout the year as the season’s change and you reach for different items.

A Closet that Makes Sense for Your Needs

Each of these tips will help you to make better use of your closet space, and organise it in a way that allows your room to look neat and tidy at all times and easy to find whatever you’re looking for.

A little bit of luxury with Hurn & Hurn

I love interior design, coming up with new ideas, matching different colours together, and having my own go to style. Which for my home, has a country/rustic/modern style running through it.  A couple of years ago my friend’s daughter painted me a beautiful water colour floral bouquet which I have framed and is currently in our family room. However, when we move to our forever home it is going to be my inspiration for our master bedroom.

A while ago we stayed in a beautiful boutique hotel that was the perfect mix of country checks vs quirky modern and I loved it. I’m always on the lookout for online retailers that offer everything I want, my love of the country side and my modern style. Hurn & Hurn are my home inspiration dream.

Ooh Hurn & Hurn how I love your style!

Hurn & Hurn have everything I have been lusting over for so long and one of those things is by a brand call Voyage Masion. Hello everything I love wrapped in one! The fabulous team at Hurn & Hurn have kindly sent me a foot stool and I couldn’t be happier.

I chose this Morning Chorus Monty Stool it really reminds me of my Mum and her love for wild flowers and garden birds. The quality of the product is fabulous and I have checked over each and very seem and stitch very carefully, when you are paying almost £80 for a little stool while one offer (RRP £100) it’s always worth checking. Safe to say it is perfect, made to such a high standard, the fabric feels fabulous, the wooden feet are all wonderful, no marks, no tiny little chips of missing wood on the edges. These are the little things I check for when buying something.

The fabric is beautiful, so pretty and although the colours are slightly pale or washed out as my Hubby would say. It is meant to be this way and is the perfect way to bring country style into our home.

It is perfect for the children to sit on to watch TV, but more importantly it is great for my feet to go on while I’m sat in the living room with a cup of tea, the log burner on and enjoying wonderful Christmas film. I love it! I couldn’t be happier with this item. It has really fitted into our home well.

I have to say that Hurn & Hurn have chosen the some of the most wonderful brands to stock, it is a testament to their vision and brand. I cannot wait to fill our forever home with more of their gorgeous products.

Thank you Hurn & Hurn for gifting me, my beautiful foot stool.
