Top Décor Ideas for a Relaxing
Your bedroom—it’s where you start and end your day, where you retreat for quiet, and according to scientific studies, where you spend a third of your life! Here, local designers and builders offer their tips and tricks on how to take this often forgotten space and make it a destination for relaxation.
Trendy and Timeless
When it comes to selecting bedroom furniture, Stephanie Nieuwendijk, owner and creative director of Dutchmans Casual Living Stores says that the key is to buy beautifully crafted pieces built to last. “Swap out your bedding, pillows, lamps, and rugs to add trendy colors [pink pastels] and textures [distressed]. These elements can be changed and updated with little expense,” says Nieuwendijk. Our favorite ageless element? The bold Kingston Chandelier, a flawless combination of neutral metals and woods. www.dutchmansdesigns.com
A Gentleman’s Getaway
When a close friend of Lisa Joublanc of Lisa Joublanc Interiors wanted to upgrade his Brookhaven bedroom into a master retreat, the seasoned interior designer set to work creating the modern room he desired. Fabrics were the key to making this masculine space comfortable. Joublanc states, “The moody color and clean lines of this bed from Crate & Barrel give it a masculine touch. I used texture in the heathered wool draperies, plush bedding, and wool area rug to soften the look and feel of the room.” www.lisajoublancinteriors.com
Vintage Vision Comes to Life
The unfinished attic of this Buckhead home was converted by Renew Properties, LLC and Nancy Mullins Designs, LLC into a unique space for guests and the owner’s daughter, Griffen, who is away at college. Mullins chose a soothing monochromatic palette to make the space appear larger. The designer also incorporated personal details like photographs taken by Griffen and vintage items such as
custom-painted nightstands inherited from a great aunt. https://renewpropertiesllc.com
Teen Tested. Besties Approved.
There’s plenty of room for this teen to make her mark here. Roane Loudermilk, founder and senior consultant at Loudermilk Designs explains, “We wanted this to be a very personal area where she could express herself and use her room as a blank canvas to make her own.” Starting with neutral grays and gold accents, the growing adolescent who had a love for faux fur at the time of the project, has since continued to put her stamp on the bedroom by adding Harry Potter photos, wizard-themed artwork, and other personal items. To corral stray belongings, the team made sure to include the Avalon Storage Bed from RH TEEN. https://loudermilk-designs.com
