Hi, Gabrielle from Savvy Home here again! Here’s a bedroom by Carrier & Company, designed for Town & Country magazine for Hearst Designer Visions. This bedroom is set in a small New York apartment, and what I love about it, is that the small space doesn’t compromise the big style present in the room.
This goes to show that you don’t need a lot of space to create an elegant designer style. All you need is a little art, a few antiques, some color and a bit of decor courage.
1. Oversized art can really add dimension to a small room.
2. If using smaller artwork, try to display it in a symmetrical fashion for more impact.
3. An antique armoire can hold a lot of storage and it always looks chic in a bedroom.
4. Don’t forget to decorate the top of the armoire with bigger items like vases and urns or baskets.
5. Chairs are useful in a bedroom to drop some clothes or your purse on, or to stack books and things.
6. In a bedroom, especially one with furniture in front of the window, curtains left open finished with a simple black out shade works like a charm.
7. If you find yourself challenged by your bedroom’s layout, putting the bed underneath the window is totally acceptable. Choose a statement headboard, like this one from Oly Studio.
8. A couple of throw pillows covered in a bold fabric is a simple way to add style to an otherwise all white bed.
9. Don’t hesitate to layer furniture in front of curtains, just pull them away a few inches to leave enough space to open and close them.
10. No space for storing winter throws? Display them at the foot of the bed.
How have you saved space in your bedroom?
See you next week!
