French Interior Design, Room by Room – the Stylish Black Bedroom
When it comes to our bedrooms, we often think/need them to be tranquil havens, somewhere we can go to relax and wind down from the day. But, we still want them to be stylish and inviting. Its hard to actually feel restful in a lackluster, disorganized space.
Today’s bedroom theme is ‘black’, which people don’t necessarily think of when it comes to relaxing. Often when it comes to bedrooms we choose light, bright colours to make the rooms feel bigger and calming. But actually black can create a striking bold space. Get it right and its super stylish and chic. You can go all out black for that darker/cosy end result, or contrast black furniture with lighter walls, or add some golds/silvers or pops of bright colour to create a stunning feature room.
Playing around with texture and furniture style can also dramatically affect the rooms final look. Below I have shown 3 different examples of ‘black’ bedroom furniture from Chichi. The first being very strong, heavily carved, gothic style, ideal for creating that cosy space – add some mood lighting and the room will simply beckon you in. The second is a much more understated chic look with straighter edged more contemporary French style pieces, a great set to have against lighter walls for that striking contrast. The third is something in between, it boasts some carved detailing and elegant shape highlighted by gorgeous gold leaf to ensure the furniture is the talking point of the room. A striking visual without looking too heavy.
