Aaaah, the bedroom. The place where all the magic happens. And I don’t know about you, but in my world, that’s sleep! Whatever you retire to your bedroom to do, though, wouldn’t it be better to do it in luxury?
The luxe trend has taken off in a big way in the interior world, so we thought we’d inspire you with some ideas on how to infuse it into your boudoir. Think daring colour palettes, reflective surfaces and lavish fabrics; anything that exudes elegance and luxury.
You don’t need to go all out, but if your décor is starting to feel a little drab, even a sprinkling of this trend for elegant master bedrooms will give it the lift it’s been crying out for. Here are a few Homebirds and Happy Beds favourites on how to create a luxurious bedroom:
1. Go Gold with Your Accessories
What accent colour says ‘elegance’ and ‘luxury’ like gold does? It’s so easy to introduce to your existing scheme via things like drawer handles, bedside lamps and trinkets. Changing furniture knobs is an instant way of enhancing your bedroom space luxe style.
We love these half-moon shaped ones, styled to perfection by @mylands_london.
2. Be Brave with Bold Colours
This trend isn’t about subtlety. Revive your space by choosing a striking colour for your walls as @keainteriors does.
You could stick to a single feature wall if you don’t dare to be this dramatic. Alternatively, try painting two-thirds of the way up each wall and using white for contrast on the top third to make an elegant modern bedroom. Separating the two colours with a picture rail gives a more refined finish.
3. Throw in Some Velvet for Va Va Voom
Your new, bang-on-trend luxury bedroom will need to shout about itself, and nothing screams ‘luxe’ louder than a velvet, colour-pop bed. The stunning Woodbury storage bed in blue is the perfect purchase to tick this box.
4. Get Sumptuous with Silk
Try a silk bedspread or bed cushions to elevate the elegance of your bed. Or, if that feels a little too much for you, simply hang a silk dressing gown on the back of the door for a more subtle take to create a beautiful, luxury bedroom.
5. Make a Statement with a Mirror
We’re talking big and floor-standing, with a detailed, ornate frame. High shine and reflective surfaces are where it’s at with this trend, so a mirror is a must. Recreate this look from @house_of_holcroft with the Soprano mirror.
The Rococo would also fit the bill, with both these options making your room seem lighter, brighter and twice as big!
Mirrored furniture is another sure-fire way to achieve an elegantly modern bedroom, and @fortheloveofhaus nails this look.
Check out the Valencia furniture range for a similar vibe. It will transform your bedroom into a truly magical place; the crystal effect handles are utterly enchanting. The black and gold Fenwick range is just as glamorous if the mirrored look isn't for you.
6. Bring in Some Buttoning
As well as having buttoning on your bed, you could incorporate it via an armchair in the corner of your luxury bedroom. The stunning Freya chair is a perfect choice and would fit perfectly with the luxe theme with its buttoned back and metal studded details. It is available in a range of colours, and there’s even a two-seater option #spoiltforchoice!
