While small furniture leaves more room for walking around in a small space, miniscule couches and chairs are rarely comfortable. So rather than place two pokey little loveseats in this 7x12-foot sitting room, designer Amie Weitzman built large seating banquettes into the blue-tweed-upholstered walls."This room is part of a guest suite," explains Weitzman, "So comfort was really the top priority." The sofas are deep enough to sink into and large enough to flop onto, "and building them right into the wall," Weitzman says, "buys you a few extra inches of floor space."
Even if you are using freestanding pieces in a small room, you can go with substantial furniture. "The one thing to make sure of," says Weiztman, "is that if you need to, you can walk around the furniture comfortably."
Your bedroom may not have all the space of a guest suite, like the one planned for West Elm Hotels, but you can draw inspiration from the home retailer's visionary space. A cart to hold items for a nightcap or reading material could serve as an attractive and multi-functional item beside a bed or in a sitting area. Or bring local art or bespoke furniture for a hospitable home.
This bedroom alcove was created with a custom raised bed and upholstered headboard, enabling a dressing and storage space to be housed beneath. Geometric panels akin to a giraffe's hide create a cool safari vibe in this midcentury loft.
By turning the room upside down (stripes on ceiling), designer Karen Wolf created a focal point, leading to the giant window showcasing the star of the room -Dwell Studios “Brushed Dot” fabric with peacock and yellow polka dots.
An ornate sage green chandelier with exposed bulbs hangs in a green and white bedroom with floral patterned wall paper and large roman shades. A day bed works in the small bedroom and provides storage along with the green glass-front bookcase.
Bright, Midcentury Modern Bedroom With Lavender Accents
Perhaps our favorite part of this bedroom is the sliding barn door that reveals the bathroom and small study area. The door is painted a lovely shade of lavender that is also found in the bedding. The room feels bright and airy thanks to the natural light pouring from the windows and reflecting off the stark white walls.
By painting their master bedroom a dark shade of gray-brown from Benjamin Moore called Affinity, the homeowners were able to create a dramatic, neutral backdrop on which to showcase a collection of modern art.
