Hello love, let’s talk about your game for a minute. How is the year looking for you? Are you happy with your romantic pursuits, or could you perhaps do a little something to spice up your life?
When it comes to creating the right ambiance for your bedroom, the last thing you need to be sporting is a pile of mismatched linens, a few odd lamps, and some old shag carpet on the floor. If you want to create a mood that makes your evenings sparkle and sizzle, consider the type of look you are creating in your boudoir.
Have you considered going mid-century modern?
What’s All The Buzz About?
People everywhere are going gaga over mid-century modern decor; its clean, classic, modern look adds life and breath to any room. Just what is this movement, and how could it enhance your current state of affairs? Here are some essentials every MCM lover needs to create the perfect environment for work, rest, and play:
Gone are the days when ornate headboards, filigreed designs, and over-the-top lines fill your bedroom with the right look. MCM furniture is clean, simple, and down-to-earth. Clean lines and design, form, and function bring an air of simple elegance to your room. Choose pieces that add to a whole look that doesn’t particularly stand out on their own. The result is a fresh, light feeling where breezy conversation and a bit of flirtation can effortlessly happen.
While you might be tempted to overdo it with accents that are reminiscent of the 1950s and 60’s decor, a modern twist on the MCM look includes the use of natural materials and textures in your space. Wood paneling, natural stone, and water accents provide a clean, natural feeling to your bedroom that is calming and purifying at the same time.
An Accent Wall
There’s nothing wrong with playing with a bit of color in your clean space; it draws the eye in, makes for an interesting conversation piece, and pulls the whole room together. Bold geometric patterns, solid colors, and even textures will enhance the whole look of your favorite space.
Sophisticated Lighting Concepts
Simple lamps with 75-watt bulbs no longer cut it; creating ambiance in the bedroom is all about getting the lighting right. During the day, it should be a space that plays with lots of natural light; well-designed windows, skylights, and flowing light window treatments create openness in your space. As the sun sets, you’ll likely want interesting, sophisticated pieces scattered about the room, coming down from the ceiling, or even extending outward from the wall, offering options for full light, romantic light, or let’s get down to business light. You don’t have to break the bank when designing a lighting concept for your bedroom; choosing a few sophisticated, multi-functional pieces will allow you to create the look and mood you want any time of day.
Clean lines are great, but we need a bit of balance, don’t we? The addition of some lush greenery in your bedroom space brings in the element of life, growth, and passion. Consider a bedside succulent or a floor-to-ceiling palm tree to add a splash of color, an object of interest, and an icon of life and love in your space.
Decorating with MCM style in mind can be easy, attractive, and fun to do. Play with these concepts and see what kind of flavor they can bring to your space, your life, and your relationships. Have fun!
