#1: Let colours do the talking

Making a focal point in blue

If you’re all about making an effortless style statement, indulge in a bedroom that’s to the point and play with the walls. We love how this room stands without extra furniture and sticks to the basics – a bed, side table and dresser. This way the powder blue wall is kept as the focal point. In addition, the wooden flooring that matches with all the furniture ties the look together.

Our Favourite Detail: While the powder blue wall dominates the room, it also tones it down at the same thanks to its elegant trims.

#2: A sink-in & relaxed bedroom design

A bench for extra comfort

This bedroom is a perfect score on style and comfort. The bed is a modern twist on a four-poster frame with an upholstered headboard. In addition, the chest of drawers on the side also gets its own unique twist by resembling a stack of suitcases painted in hues of teal. A bench placed in front of the bed brings in added comfort.

Our Favourite Detail: Notice how the upholstered bench plays match with the headboard? The choice of keeping the dark teal bench in a rich velvet fabric certainly takes it up a notch too. If you want to see the full tour, take a look at A Potpourri of Styles for this 5-Room Condo

In addition, you can bask in the abundance of sunlight since nothing is blocking the gorgeous balcony.
