aspirational homes | the bedroom

In the past week, I got the opportunity to look at some houses and their impeccable interior design. What can I say, they were definitely impressive and I couldn't resist the opportunity to take some photographs to share with everyone. Since I did take plenty of photos, I have decided to break them up into different categories so you wouldn't feel like you were reading a large book by the end of the post. 

We spend at least one third of our life in our bedrooms, so it is important to create a space which is intimate yet comfortable. I find that the bedroom is one of the places in your home where you can add the personal touches in order to create an peaceful environment. What the recurring themes I saw in these particular bedrooms where the use of quite large and detailed headboards. These headboards ranged from graphic text to tall, quilted headboards to a parisian chic baroque-inspired headboard. They definitely add some interest to the ordinary bed. Also, bedding and other textiles were not in short supply. Having multiple pillows and cushions create a more comfortable space and it really does feel like you can just dive into bed. Blankets and throws were also a frequent addition to add the finishing touches. 

I am so excited to share my photographs which I have taken in these aspirational homes and spaces over the next week or so. What was your favourite bedroom and what would your dream bedroom look like?

    1. i know how living in an uninspiring bedroom room feels like. I'm in the process of redoing my bedroom and even a fresh coat of paint does wonders. I had drab blue walls and that was a nightmare!
