Design Inspiration: Bright Bedrooms

Spring’s ever-renewing saga always inspires. When the days lengthen and the flowers bloom, adding their varied scents to the breeze, open your bedroom windows to take it all in. But when you redo your bedroom furniture and other decor to celebrate this time of light and rebirth, you want subtlety. Not only do you want your master bedroom to emphasize the light. You need a bit of darkness, shadows, to keep things interesting rather than relentlessly bright. That’s where bedroom furniture and home accents from us make your spring bedroom makeover so much simpler.

Bright Walls, Dark Bed for Cool Contrast

A simple and relatively economical way to make your bedroom furniture and decor better reflect the warmer seasons is a bit of contrast. Try rendering your walls, window treatments, and bedroom accessory furniture such as mirrored dressers in brilliant white or a similar light hue. Once you’ve done that, consider a king or queen bed in a dark cherry or black finish. Interesting lives are full of shadows, or you can’t appreciate the light fully unless you have something to contrast it to. Some gray or blue accent pillows gracefully augment this effect.

Choose Accent Accessories to Magnify the Light

A simple designer’s trick to make the most of your bedroom’s natural light is to add an accent mirror prominently on a wall facing the windows, especially if those windows face east or west. If your bedroom lacks enough sunlight, time to go all-out with accent lamps and wall sconces for some electric assistant. Finally, some inspiring floral accent wall art can round out your spring theme.

For these and other bedroom furniture choices to liven your inner sanctuary for the sunnier months, our Winchester, VA store and other Roberts Furniture & Mattress locations are always ready to assist.
