The Simple Yet Stylish Bedroom





I like all of these bedrooms above. They are all very undecorated and so simply put together yet so, so beautiful. What do you think - would you prefer a completely decorated bedroom or a more relaxed thrown together look like these rooms above?

**NB - I am not certain of my sources for these photographs as I have collected them in my photo file over time. Apologies if I have offended anyone by posting these photos. If so, please email me. Thanks so much!!

I think that they are very serene and pretty but there is just no way I could NOT put something behind that bed in the last pic.

Lovely images Anna. So relaxed and inviting. Love the blue in the last photo. A stylishly curated bedroom is gorgeous but the thrown together look is so liveable.

Love the pics - I think I have all of those saved too! Just thought you maybe should mention your source. You don't have to post this comment. :) Just looking out for my friends!

Beautiful photos. For me, I prefer a bedroom that is decorated, but not too much so. I think I fall somewhere in the middle.

The one on top is so relaxing, and the elements so casual. Love the koi painting. What I really like about the blue and white is the dark shutters. I think they really give it that tropical je ne sais qua. Gosh, it's beautiful. The pink room is from Domino and I remember that they painted almost their entire house pink. There is no way with their children the house could look like that - so barren. Where is the spaghetti sauce on the wall, the stray ball? I don't like when magazines feature impossibilty. It bores me.

I love the undecorated look. As long as it "feels" beautiful. And all of those do, k

It's got to be the top one for me. I love black and white interiors and the striped sail above the bed. That's one beautiful room.

Anna said...

Maryam I agree with you - to create this look it takes a lot of restraint and that is something I don't have but I still really love these bedrooms and I think I would love them in a beach house and then I could still have a more decorated room back home!

Anna said...

I think I agree with you POC - not too decorated but not too plain. Definately somewhere in the middle!!

Thanks MCJ, Pink, Gypsy & K for your comments. We've had a mixed bag of comments with this opinion poll - some like a more relaxed look, some like a slightly decorated look and then some like a decorated look!! It's been great to see your mixed comments!! I can't decide so I think I have to have a simple, relaxed look at Straddie and a slightly more decorated look at home!! Thanks everyone!

i'm a big fan of the simple, serene bedroom, but i'm having trouble achieving it.

also, the first and third images are from domino mag, but i can't recall which issues.
