Although white is going nowhere (nor will it ever), the warmer tones on the color wheel are creeping into design in a very heavy way right now and we are very into it. We aren’t talking bright yellows, oranges, and reds. Instead, it is mustards, siennas, and rusts. They are slightly more saturated, moody and subtle than their sister colors and even more stylish. Dare we even say that we are into orange? Well, maybe when it’s referred to as Sienna – big difference. So, we decided to pull together a bedroom retreat filled with said warmer colors, lots of texture and a dose of graphic elements to help modernize it and keep it from feeling too hippie. Let’s get into it.
You might be asking yourself, how do boho and zen work in the same space? Well for our 5k version we brought the two together through layers of textiles mixed with the more zen elements like the paper lantern and rattan table lamp on the dresser. The washed linens in the rust and blush tones were our starting place for this first version and we echoed the tonal palette throughout with the mustard velvet ottoman and throw as well as the tonal wood varieties. Speaking of wood, we peppered it around the room in the nightstands, the wood dresser as well as the wood tray and that leaning blanket mirror which we have in the corner. We paired the mirror with the mustard velvet ottoman and the Noguchi inspired floor lamp to create the ultimate lounge area. But if an ottoman area isn’t for you then you could always swap it out for a velvet armchair. The look is relaxed and layered while still feeling refined and inviting.
For this next version, we were able to get the price down by almost 2k. The main pieces that were swapped out are the dresser, mirror, bed and linens. But, we have to say, we might actually like this version better. The color of the linens is a bit more toned down and the accessories are more tonal as well. We also are suggesting a paint color for these looks which is a very soft blush tone. The room would totally work without any paint on the walls but if you can handle the color then this soft tone is a great option.
Last but not least our third version comes in at just under 2k, which is pretty good due to how similar it looks to the first one. To get the price down we swapped out the more expensive wood and leather nightstands for these simple metal triangle tables as well as the lamps that are on top of them. Although the lamps are a pretty good look alike to the originals they are less than half the price. The dresser is also slightly smaller but has the same look and feel of the first two. Last but not least we swapped out the velvet ottoman for this version that is a bit smaller and doesn’t have any feet on it.
Let us know if you have any questions on any of the pieces, and if you think you are into the warmer color trend that we are seeing a lot of currently.
