Bedrooms are the most personal spaces in our homes. They’re not only places to unwind in, but rooms that need ‘no filter.’ After all, it’s not every day that you’ll welcome others into your stress-free sanctuary.
Here at Langlois Design, we believe that your personality can and should be fully expressed in your bedroom. It’s the opportunity to push the boundaries of Interior Design and create a room that is completely ‘you.’
So on that note, Let’s deep dive into some of our favourite bedroom moments and styling tips!
Let’s start with the bedhead as it provides a strong focal point and sets the scene for the overall look or theme you are trying to achieve.
Because a bedhead often speaks for itself, it’s a great way to elevate a simple room. With an eye-catching bedhead, you can make the entire space feel well composed.
In the New Farm Apartment (below), we went the extra style mile by working in a custom matching bedhead and cushion. These popping patterns on clean white sheets added a welcomed contrast, alongside the bold charcoal and white striped wallpaper.
One of the easiest ways to give your bedroom a fresh new look is by updating your bed linen. When we’re styling a room, we love to offset the bed head with contrasting fabrics, heightening the texture and drama.
In the Byron Bay Residence, we mixed stripes with botanicals which offers a bold and yet sophisticated aesthetic.
When it comes to your bedside table, there are many, many options to consider. Whether traditional and freestanding or built in, you can customise to suit your personal style and your functional requirements.
We love an integrated, hole-in-the-wall design. This brings an extra design element to the space as well as being a space-saver for smaller rooms.
Also known as the ‘laundry chair’ — which is why we need to change that!
Don’t worry about the cushions and the bells and whistles, a fun and simple throw will bring everything you need in the way of personality and style! We used an elegant sheep skin on the occasional chair at the Byron Bay Residence (below) creating a welcoming space to sit and reflect.
When kids have a special space of their own, they’ll love to spend time there. Which is a win for all!
In the children’s bedrooms at the Clayfield Residence, the architects thought about future functionality and included customised desks that transform from a colouring space to a study nook.
While form and functionality is key, it’s also about keeping their little minds exploring with creative and colourful decor. Whether that’s a dinosaur-themed space or fairies and princesses. Or whatever kids are into these days!
Wallpaper is one of our personal favourites! When you are wanting something other than artwork to bring explosive personality and energy to the bedroom, consider this your go-to. When it comes to choosing a print, we say go bold or go home. This is your chance to be a little wild.
