Styling: The Bedroom

 

 

Styling the bedroom with contemporary aesthetics is easier said than done. Find out how to pair dark accents with neutral tones.

 

Over the course of our life, the bedroom is the place we spend the most time within the home — a place of retreat, sanctuary and intimacy. It’s only natural that we would want to decorate and imbue this space with as much comfort as possible, both visually and emotionally.

 

Below is a visual moodboard of some of Marz Designs’ favourite lighting, furniture and homewares for the bedroom – a compilation of dark accents that work in harmony with neutral tones. 

 

 

Lighting

 

Lighting is a significant component of any bedroom as factors like intensity have the ability to affect mood. Far too often, lighting is an afterthought. And while a master bedroom may have prominent architectural features, it can rely heavily on how lighting, both artificial and natural, accentuates those features.

 

Similarly, lighting is an opportunity to bring together multiple elements within the bedroom. From materiality to shape, the dark accent of a ceramic wall light serves as a foundation that spills into other components of considered interior design.

The slate ceramics in the Terra Range offer a textural and material mood that resonates throughout the bedroom. The Terra 2 Wall Light particularly creates a perfect level of balanced ambience, featuring two ceramic cylinders that stack to form bi-directional lighting.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks to its handmade approach, each Terra 2 Wall Light is unique. With brass or brushed black detailing and available in a choice of three ceramic tones – Slate, Sage and Vanilla Bean – the Terra 2 Wall Light is a standout in the Terra Range.

Furniture

 

An armchair can be a beautiful feature in the master bedroom that enriches the space with purpose. A quiet corner for reading, a place of conversation, or simply a design feature that speaks to the other colours, patterns and textures in the room. Armchairs allow moments of reflection and create a touch of elegance. Often called an occasional or accent chair, these pieces establish connection and ensure the bedroom is much more than just a place of sleep.

The woven textile seat is a hallmark of ethical design and is constructed from 53 recycled plastic bottles. The resulting durable fabric makes the Desert Lounge Chair suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

Homewares

 

Mirrors have long been a thoughtful way to accentuate space. No matter their shape or size, mirrors can subtly complement and unite an existing interior. Functionally, they can cover blank surfaces, but creatively speaking, mirrors can be used to multiply light and reflect other images if positioned correctly, such as the garden.

 

“Devoid of harsh edges, this curved and abstracted mirror allows it to occupy a wall in any orientation, making it a naturally effortless companion in the home.”
