A stylish shared room with space saving solutions
Designing a room can be difficult, especially one that is shared, as this requires twice the furniture and storage. To create a cohesive room, select bedding and furniture that is identical. Keeping the furniture layout symmetrical is a great way to maximize space.
Keep it Zen
Natural elements were brought in; a tree stump was added for artistic detail in place of a nightstand. Similarly, an indoor swing offered opportunity to bring the outdoors in. Adding natural wood in your decor can give warmth and texture. However, when incorporating wood, it is important to consider the type of wood and colour. Lastly, storage baskets offer a stylish solution to keep the room organized.
To add unique personality to the space, a wall mural was designed and installed – this brings a playfulness to an otherwise boring wall. A wall mural is a digital photographic image with less symmetry and much larger repeats. Typically, it is used as an accent on one wall. The application for the mural is simple, it has an adhesive backing that peels and sticks to the wall.
Keep it light and airy
To elevate the space, panelling details were added, the colour palette is bright and airy making the room feel breathable. Window treatments were kept soft to keep the natural light flowing. And, for the final touches, a colourful rug and cheerful artwork were added to tie the entire space together.
