Your bedroom is one of the most important rooms in your house and should be a cozy retreat for you to enjoy fully. Whether it's luxurious bedding, soothing color schemes, or unique accent pieces, paying close attention to your design decisions can result in a chic space for rest and relaxation. We invited 10 Dering Hall interior designers to share their take on the best ways to take a bedroom design to the next level.
The most classic bedroom foldout piece of furniture, of course, is the Murphy bed. This is a terrific option for an alcove in a studio apartment or a guest bedroom that pulls double duty as a den or home office. It can even be useful if you simply have a small bedroom without sufficient functional space for storage furniture as well as a bed. Today’s Murphy beds are well-designed, comfortable and often incorporate other design features such as shelving or desks.
Drapes and shades are a fundamental element to make a space feel warm, and I also like to use rugs to make the space feel softer. There should always be an inviting area to sit, read, and relax.
Pendant lights come in all sizes and styles, from simple glass orbs to delicate crystals, and are a fabulous way to turn an ordinary bedroom into an extraordinary haven. Look for pendant lights with cutwork or jewel-like openings. When illuminated in the dark, the lights will cast a radiant jewel-box glow in your bedroom.
