Tonal Bedroom — Get The Look

We're back!  Finally, eh?  My break was not planned, but sometimes there are so many things going on at once that sitting down to write a thorough post is not easy.  I've been meaning to be consistent as I wish our blog to stay relevant, so hoping to continue now during the new year.  Speaking of it, HAPPY NEW YEAR, everyone.  Truly hoping it's been a healthy and productive one so far.  Now, let's get on with today's discussion, shall we?  We're sharing our "Get The Look" from one of our very favorite bedroom designs to date — Tonal Bedroom.  Not only is it tranquil (you know that's my thing), it is incredibly soothing, sophisticated and serene.  HA, the three "S's"; also didn't plan that.

More than ever I've been deciphering my true aesthetic (see how you can discover yours here) and I always come back to the same signature look.  Spaces that feel substantial with a whole lot of custom upholstery, touches of rustic with natural wood tones, though the determining factor is always the very soft color palette.  Whatever the colors chosen are, we seem to choose the ones with a dusty, pale, subdued saturation.  This means our interiors end up being somewhat monochromatic for the perfect spa like experience.  I do like the idea of breaking that balance with a few hints of deep, dramatic shades, too.

Tonal Bedroom — Get The Look

This bedroom design began with the bed.  It is one of my favorites because it features an upholstered headboard - the sides are upholstered throughout the entire base, too, but also a textural solid teak footboard that isn't too high as it ends just below the mattress.  You know those beds with footboards that are way too high?  I don't like those at all.  If a bed is to have a footboard, I prefer it to be low, not blocking the headboard.

Since I wanted to create an all around calming bedroom, I proposed a color palette of soft creams, taupes, bronze and brass for some glam.  That's how those stunning and uniquely shaped oversized bronze table lamps came about.  These must be my absolute favorite lamps ever, seriously.  I injected much needed color through the custom dusty blue/gray and lilac rug and pillows.  What makes this room so special is how the colors resemble each other, but don't translate as boring.  In this case, beige is not boring if I do say so myself.  Despite everything being my favorite, I specially love the almost casual design of the bench at the foot of the bed as well as the curved back sofa (shape is not properly visible here).

Designer Tip:

In a space or bedroom with many rigid lines found on the bed, nightstand, dresser, bench and even rug, consider adding a curvaceous piece of furniture to break up all the corners.  A curved back sofa, side chair and/or round side table are the perfect solution.

To add on to the spa like retreat, it was only natural to add a piece that felt light, airy and almost translucent amid all the upholstery.  This could have been done with a glass lamp, which we did use on my all time favorite dresser, but we opted for a ridiculously gorgeous rock crystal chandelier above the bed.  They don't come more luxurious than this.  When lit up, this chandelier is the most beautiful, pairing so well with the darker bronze table lamps.  All the heart eyes for this combination, for sure.
