Dark or Colorful, Always Cozy – Bedrooms

September 30, 2011

Hello there. How are you doing today? Did you catch the debut of Design Voice Surveys yesterday? I find myself at a loss for any kind of witty introduction today. I’m too sleepy and the sky’s too gray. It has been raining in West Michigan for days. Bah humbug. Let’s try to lift our spirits by pouring over some excellent bedrooms.

The first three images today come courtesy of a fabulous interior designer that I discovered recently, Daun Curry. This first room is so deliciously moody and dark, and yet it also has very approachable, recognizable elements like pretty pillows and simple table lamps. If the room seems a bit dark to you, keep in mind that this photograph appears to have been taken on a cloudy day. Plus, darker shadow-filled rooms can be beautiful and are especially appropriate in the bedroom where low light is often desirable.

This is, quite simply, not my style. But I really appreciate that glamorous wallpaper and the super plush rug. Daun Curry.

More fun wallpaper, and I especially love the textures of the upholstered bed frame and the coverlet. Daun Curry.

A little too white-washed for me, but I love the bright yellow and pinks here and how the placement causes your eye to move around the room. Via Design*Sponge.

The giant fur throw makes this room, in my opinion. I also love the decorative pillow and the bold artwork. Can you imagine how much more tame the room would be without that art? Photographed by Simon Upton for Elle Decor via nicety.

I really love this color palette. White, black, gray, and an injection of fun with bright yellow and magenta. I wouldn’t like this at all if it wasn’t for that awesome patterned blanket. One piece can transform a room. Via Nuevo Estilo.

Love all that beautiful wood. Norrgavel via design attractor.

There are so many lovely and homey elements to this room. My favorite part is the billowy sheer curtains. Pretty rugs, creative book shelves, cozy bed. I could definitely spend a lazy morning here. Photographed by Gösta Reiland for IKEA’s Livet Hemma.
