Designing an Adult Bedroom : Part 1
I'm in the process of helping my friend, and new roommate, update her bedroom. She moved in about a month ago, and asked for my help designing an adult, refined bedroom that would serve a number of purposes. The room needed to act as a personal sanctuary, and a quiet place she could come relax after a long day. The main challenge for her is storage. She's super athletic and has a bunch of equipment: two bikes, lots of water bottles, yoga mat, training gear--a little of everything.
The goals for her room were to make sure that everything had a place, and to create a cohesive space. I'd share a before image, but without having homes for her gear and having just moved in, I feel like it's unnecessary. Imagine a standard bedroom, square, with a large (by San Francisco standards) closet, standard off-white walls, and a window that looks out onto a lightwell. She already had a lot of simple, basic bedroom pieces like a bed and a bookshelf, and a bunch of treasures gathered from her world travels, so my job was to use smaller furniture pieces and accessories to pull the space together.
The first thing I did was sit down with her and talk about what her wants and needs were. She gave me full creative freedom with the room design, so my next step was to create a mood board, which is above. Modern with touches of boho and metallic accents are what we settled on. To soften the space, I suggested adding a large macrame or woven art piece above the bed. We're also playing with textures, adding some light fixtures, and working on organizing everything.
I can't wait to share our progress! We've ordered a bunch of pieces, and I'm so excited for them to start coming in! I've linked a bunch of pieces we purchased, and pieces we got inspiration from below. Stay tuned for the full reveal in a couple of weeks!
