A lot of people misinterpret color for something definitely ‘bold’, but that is far from the truth. You can bring a colorful bed frame and headboard into your bedroom without actually splurging on a whole lot of vivaciousness! Pick out a bed frame in orange, red or even purple, but in a lighter tone and with a matte finish. These chic and smart beds are ideal for bedrooms with styles varying from shabby chic, modern, minimal and contemporary to something as extravagant as Hollywood Regency and retro. Once again, make sure you choose the right headboard as this makes or breaks the look of the room in an instant.
Combine a coupled of dashing floor lamps along with a small, round bedside table (which can also be used as an end table in the living room when needed) to move away from the more traditional design approach. Low-slung beds coupled with equally modest bedside tables are a great choice in bedrooms with low ceiling and in attic spaces. From nesting tables that never fail to bedframes that come with cool, attached nightstands there are innumerable innovative options to choose from.
A first idea would be that you can replace the classic nightstands with shelves, thus capitalizing on height space. You can custom build them so that the lower part takes over the role and appearance of what they replace. And now you will need a closet. One that is as big as possible so that you don’t lose any wall surface. But it’s not that easy. Given your room’s form, you may not have an entire wall for that wardrobe. That’s why you should consider having the drawer in front of the bed (unlike the usual — sideways). You can even fit in your TV set. If that’s not an option as well, how about a TV stand with drawers? It’s probably the best solution.
One of the biggest perks of a live-edge headboard is the exclusivity that it brings to the bedroom. If you are really good with DIY skills (say intermediate-level skills), then crafting a stunning piece of headboard from a slab of wood is barely an issue. It is a DIY project that you can easily try out at home. The hardest part is of course finding that mesmerizing slab of wood that you absolutely adore. Once that is done, everything else becomes a whole lot easier. If you really are not the DIY type, then you can even order a one-of-a-kind bed with a live-edge wood frame and headboard from sites like Anthropologie.
