Why This Room Caught My Eye

1 April 2013 0


Are you ready for some Tuesday eye candy? Well, today I have something for those of you who love textures, patterns and colours – a remarkable bedroom styling with an ethnic vibe. When I spotted this bedroom makeover, my eye was instantly drawn to the plethora of patterns and colours. The kilim cushions mixing with an Ikat cushion and a furry fellow, the Kantha throw, the Tajine shaped basket, the huge plant…this room took me on a little visual voyage to unknown places full of mystery and promise. But I digress. Here are the three key factors that caught my eye:

  • Big plant in the bedroom: This big fiddle fig tree in the back of the bed is an eye-catcher. It brings the nature into the bedroom and makes you feel like you are camping in the jungle. 
  • Wooden headboard: The reclaimed wood used as a headboard adds texture and enriches the natural vibe of this room. Plus it ties the other wooden elements visually together.
  • Ethnic mix of cushions: The richness in pattern, colour and texture is striking. The colour palette matches the Kantha throw and balances the entire bedroom styling. 
What catches your eye? Do you like this styling?

    fun! a friend of mine just bought a place out in the country and I know this is exactly the style he would want for his bedroom. The large fiddle leaf plant, the wood headboard built with reclaimed wood, and ethnic pillows … all have my friend’s name on it!

    you sure you don’t want to come to Toronto to help us with the space? wink!

    Yes I like the styling – in fact I am planning to add a headboard of reclaimed wood to our bed and love my own vintage kilim cushions… I also like the bedside table and the way it’s styled in your picture!

    I love the fig tree in this bedroom! The leaves are so pretty and I bet it’s extra healthy to sleep there too.

    I love this bedroom, it’s not the sort of look I ever would put together myself, so it’s inspiring to see how they’ve mixed varying textures and patterns and made it all work together.

    This reminds me of “the jungalow”! (Justina Blakeney)

      Totally, Susan! I actually picked this photo for my first homework of Justina’s interior styling class.

    Τα μαξιλάρια μου θυμίζουν παρα πολύ χωριά της Μακεδονιας.

    I liked you idea of ethnic vibe this bedroom contains in it. Yes this is a great makeover done of the bedroom and certainly is very eye-catching. The cusions are amazingly covered with some great looking colourful covers.
