Luxury bedroom decor was made famous by the program Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. However, people like Gary Friedman have been involved in designing luxury rooms for many years before that.Indeed, it is people like them who have been able to define it, determining that it has to do not just with the beauty of the decor, but also with the style, the material, and how it is placed. Creating a luxury bedroom is down to the finest details, from the lampshades to the window treatments and from the throw rugs to the bed itself.
Gary Friedman on the Luxury Bedroom
When you have a luxury bedroom, you will instantly feel as if you are rich and wealthy yourself. The design, the fabric, the color, they are all things that help you feel comfortable and at ease. Commonly, a luxury bedroom will have a type of style or theme. What this theme is varies depending on the individual and can be anything from a Tuscan bedroom to an Egyptian bedroom.
That said, Gary Friedman has noticed that a lot of people have become interested in the Nautical theme. Here, the room is decorated with white and blue stripes in vertical lines. Often, they have an egg shell finish which makes it shimmer slightly. The room will include couches with navy pillows, sconces, and ottomans, all of which create soft, dim atmosphere. This isn’t just about the look, it is also about encouraging comfortable sleep.
If you are designing a luxury bedroom, it is important that there is a sense of uniformity in your decor creating a look at that works. Hence, you should start by choosing a theme that you like and then try to find items that fit within that seem to place within your room. In order to make it look luxurious, however, you need to make sure that the materials are of the highest possible quality.
Indeed, perhaps of the greatest importance in creating a luxury bedroom is not just that everything matches, but that the material is of true quality, as is the workmanship that went into creating whatever item of furniture you use. A luxury bedroom is a room with real velvet, not fake velvet. It is a room with a mahogany bed, not an MDF cupboard. It is a room with silk lampshades, rather than the cheap things you can find in any convenience store. While the cheaper models may look just as good from a distance, closer inspection will almost immediately reveal that it is essentially cheap tat.
Unfortunately, the fact that a true luxury bedroom is made out of expensive, high-quality materials, also means that it is unattainable for most people. However, particularly when it comes to your bedroom, you have to think about the fact that you are making an investment in yourself. You spend around a third of your life in your bedroom so why not make it something beautiful, comfortable, and truly reflective of who you are?
