Why This Room Caught My Eye

18 February 2014 1


After all my travels I love to come back home. Especially to come back to my own bed. Don’t get me wrong – I do get to sleep in very, very comfy beds in great hotels and homes, but there’s always something that’s not quite as at home, right? Well, with this in mind I am sharing a lovely bedroom inspiration with you today. And as usual on Tuesday, I want to show you why this room caught my eye:

  • Statement Art Piece: Do you have a statement art piece above your bed? I do have one but on the wall to the side as my bed is perched under a roof pitch thus not ideal for hanging art. But if I had a regular wall behind my bed I’d go for a statement art piece like in this example. It draws the eye’s attention instantly and it is a great starting point for stylings in the room as you can draw inspiration, colors and themes from the art piece.
  • Matching Cushions: One pair of matching cushions with a print can be excellent to balance the bedroom styling. In this case, two throw cushions with a bold circle print do the trick – they mirror a color hue from the above hanging art piece and create a balanced look. Plus the mustard yellow pompom borders perfectly tie the image together with the bedthrow’s color.
  • Knitted Bedthrow: I love chunky knit throws – they not only create a comfy feeling but also add great texture to a bed or sofa. This mustard yellow hued throw is fabulously placed in the lower third of the bed and fulfills the styling by tying everything together color-wise: the art piece, the cushions and the bedthrow. Visual pleasure!
Is this bedroom styling catching your eye too?

    love how happy and cheerful this room feels! the pale blushy coral pink, the little yellow pom pom trims, the hits of black via side table/ lamp/ pendant all add extra layering and dimenions to the space. what a happy room for Tuesday! xoxo

      Definitely a happy room, right Tim? I sort of feel inspired to redo my own bed now. Here’s a weekend challenge I’d say:-)

    Looks great, I love the wire lampshade too on the ceiling – all in all a great, well-balanced room. Thanks for sharing x

      Good point – I love the fact that the lighting is black in this colourful room, it stands out visually!
