Color is an essential element of any design aesthetic, but in the bedroom texture may be even more important. Clean lines can go a long way towards creating a comforting atmosphere, but do little in the way of comfort if they are hard, rough, or sharp. Instead, bedrooms should be made of plenty of soft textures that can move, shift, and provide physical as well as aesthetic comfort. The bedrooms covered in this post are not just beautiful to look at, but use soft, sensual textures that would be perfect for touching, snuggling, and getting wrapped up in at the end of a long day.
The first bedroom in this post, from designer Mário Nogueira, is actually a small studio apartment in a downstairs, garden-level space. The space is decorated with largely neutral colors and natural elements including smooth, lovely wood. The overhead lighting element is particularly unusual and noteworthy. The smooth floors and soft area rug under the bed are ideal for bare feet and perfect, therefore, in a bedroom.
The next space, rather than a beige and oatmeal color theme, uses cool gray blues for its palette. Like the first room, it uses a soft area rug to create an inviting space around the bed along with cozy blue blankets that can make you feel like you’re wrapped in your own raincloud.
The third bedroom gets a bit more creative in terms of color. The eye cannot turn away from the luxurious purple velvet sofa at the end of the bed. Both the color and the texture are a perfect central element for a beautiful bedroom. Another soft rug and even the cool smooth glass of the brass coffee tables create a fully realized vision of touch and texture.
This bedroom also has a private dressing area that includes an ultramodern vanity and easy to organize wardrobe.
The next bedroom from designer Hüseyin Sedef uses, understandably, the bed as its focal point. The wood canopy, which is actually built into the room, creates a separate and enclosed feeling that is lovely for sleeping without actually closing the bed in. This room also features a luxurious ensuite bath that includes a massive private whirlpool and a waterfall inspired shower. On the other side of the bed’s canopy is a lovely little vanity area.
Yellow is a dominating color in this particular bedroom, which could be a bit loud. However, by cutting the effects of the bright yellow with cool grays as well as soft textured bedding, the room instead feels soft and soothing.
The final bedroom, from designer Victoria Yakusha is decidedly feminine. It includes the ruffled throwback of a bedskirt and decadently soft lighting. The built in shelving, long luscious curtains and perfectly chosen sparkled knick knacks just add to the ethereal atmosphere of this perfect and pretty retreat.
