Today’s design inspiration comes from Bernhardt Furniture – specifically their bedroom furniture catalogue. Beautifully styled and photographed, the images are design eye-candy – even for those not currently in the market for high-end furniture.
Notice the restful symmetry of the above bedroom, with striking herringbone bedside tables adding balanced punctuation.
Here, natural textures and light, slightly greyed woods contrast with the unusual mirrored bed.
Bold, whimsical wallpaper adds pattern to this bedroom, and is echoed in the blue rug. Accessories carry on the colour. Mirrored bedside tables and a dramatic chandelier up the luxe factor.
Warm metallics are back, and this bed is unabashedly, dramatically, gold. The traditional canopy bed takes a modern direction with clean lines, and this beautiful, high-ceilinged, windowed setting emphasizes its large scale.
The nailhead upholstery of the above bed signifies “traditional”, yet the room styling is more modern. This approach highlights how flexible traditional furniture pieces can be when paired with less “stuffy” room design.
And above, another inspired variation from what is expected – instead of the usual chandelier over the free-standing tub in the principal ensuite bath – a large mirror hangs suspended in front of the window. It’s a light, airy, and luxurious touch.
