If you’re in any doubt as to how seriously we take our sleep here at NONAGON.style, just remember that this year we consulted both design experts and feng shui masters alike in our quest for restful slumber. The takeaway? It turns out environment is key.
Bedroom Design Inspiration
Views on Views
When it comes to views, no home does it better than Benguela Cove. We’re pleased to see its sleeping quarters taking full advantage of this. Floor to ceiling sliding glass windows open onto a wooden deck and beautiful 360 degree views. Inside, austere concrete walls and steel frames dictate a rough industrial aesthetic. This simplicity works to enhance the majesty of the mountain views and blue lagoon waters. A traditional log burner is just the thing to bring a cozy glow to the space come nightfall.
Cozy meets vintage chic in the bedroom of designer Sarah Ward. The rose-gold accented statement wallpaper is a particular stand out here. We love how its pattern is echoed by the mid-century modern sputnik lighting feature! While pops of blue pack a visual punch, darker-toned end tables and black rimmed frames work to add depth to the space. Overall, the look shines as an example of what happens when personality and style collide.
Peace of Mind
The quiet understated nature of Japanese design and the simplicity of a minimalist aesthetic are a match made in heaven — and here’s the receipt to prove it. This bedroom in a recently renovated Kyoto guesthouse is the architectural embodiment of modern zen. A low height futon bed dominates the space, leaving little room for distracting extras that hinder sleep. We especially love how the lighting and wood textures help to soften the starkness of the aesthetic, injecting warmth and intimacy into the space.
As per the owner’s request, the private bedroom quarters of this Barcelona casa embraces simplicity in both color and design. Here, it’s the clash of textures which is the true star. Exposed brick, distressed wood and smooth metallic accents add subtle interest to this uncluttered design. Just like above, minimal distractions make this a designer and feng shui-approved sleep hideaway.
Billowy drapes and silky velvet textures spell stately elegance in this contemporary-luxe space. The rich blue palette is a surprising choice, standing in contrast to the rest of the bright, neutral-hued abode. Yet this turn to the dark side is an effective visual separator, defining this part of the home as a sanctuary for sleep and relaxation.
