Industrial

When we think of industrial design, we think minimalistic, dark colours and lots of metal. It doesn’t seem very appealing for an area of your home especially bedroom, but wait!

Statement carpet and rugs

Many renovations of older houses involve ripping out old carpet often sporting a crazy print. So why on earth are we recommending to reinstall printed rugs and carpet? Well because it looks great, if it’s done right of course! Floral prints tend to create a calming aura in a room because it reflects feelings of nature, making it a great central theme for a bedroom design. If you’re going for a louder retro look, you can’t go wrong with a striking black and white print. Our biggest tip with this trend is, if you’re not sure, get a rug to start off with. It can still add enough personality to your bedroom design to add the finishing touches.

Luxury
