Winter Whites Bedroom

winter_retreat

If “Sweater Weather” were a place it would be this Winter Whites bedroom. A retreat from these chilly January days, we’ve dreamed up the perfect bedroom to snuggle up and wait for winter’s end.

We crafted this bedroom for someone who loves rustic spaces, but craves a minimal vibe. We started with a palette of neutral tones, covering the full spectrum from white, to beige, to various shades of brown. When looking for pieces, we opted for organic materials to play up the rustic feeling. Textures galore, in this space natural woods, leather, clay, wool, and jute come together to create a harmonious yet visually dynamic space. Soft landscapes and whimsical insect studies were the final touch, artwork we selected to underscore the connection of the room to the natural world.

What brings the room to life is the play between textures. We chose to play with a collage of rough jute, caning, hammered metal, and patterned surfaces to create some visual intrigue within the minimal space. We especially love the bone inlay pattern on the Hessa dresser – an elegant and rustic touch to the space. As rustic as it is minimal, the natural palette, mix of traditional and contemporary furniture, and organic materials all create a warm and timeless “Winter White” space. The perfect cozy retreat, this collection is rooted in Winter even as it looks towards Spring.

Stylist tip: Double-dip with your furniture and use a desk as a nightstand. This is great for smaller spaces, and will help keep your room from feeling too “matchy-matchy.”

Industrial Visionary Bedroom

A style that is simultaneously unfinished and refined, organic and designed; we love to admire industrial loft spaces, but it can be hard to imagine actually living in them. An increasingly popular style, the name conjures up images of exposed ceiling beams, raw and unfinished materials, and a celebration of objects and their industrial pasts. To make this desirable style attainable for all of us who don’t live in cool city lofts, look for products that embody the tenets of industrial design.

Industrial Visionary Bedroom

Originating as cost-saving measures, over time, the defining characteristics of industrial design became sought-after elements of the style. In the late 20th century, abandoned Victorian factories and warehouses began to be converted into residential living spaces. At first taking the form of studio spaces for struggling artists, industrial lofts experienced a surge in popularity and eventually became aspirational, rather than attainable, dwellings.

Industrial Visionary Bedroom

While we can’t all have steel beams and floor-to-ceiling windows in our homes, we can achieve an industrial look in whatever space we have. Here are some of the basics on how to achieve an Industrial look in any space:

  • Start with a neutral color palette. The high contrast of whites, greys, and blacks layered over neutral tones helps recreate the drama of Industrial interiors.
  • Let the materials do the talking. Reclaimed wood, metal, leather, linen, and acrylic are all staples of Industrial interiors. Opt for pieces that show their age or feel “unfinished” – a nice patina on a leather armchair or a slab of live-edge wood, help create the illusion of an industrial past.
  • Modern forms and clean lines are your friends. Industrial interior design is a no-frills style, so picking furniture that is minimal and modern will do wonders in helping you achieve this look. We’ve picked out some of our favorite pieces below to get you started.

Stylist tip: Warm up an industrial space with brass and gold metals. This will help add some color and make the room feel more inviting. We love the Brass Studio Floor mirror from Pottery Barn and the Gold-Dipped Task Lamp from Anthropologie.
