One trend I've noticed in design lately is that more and more clients want a simple, minimal bedroom. I think with the influx of new technology, it's more important than ever that the bedroom is a soothing and relaxing space - a sanctuary from the stress and chaos of the modern world. By stripping down to the bare essentials, you can eliminate a lot of the noise and distraction. While a minimalist look is not for everyone, it's a great way to make a strong design statement without spending a ton of money. When you are only purchasing a few items, you'll have more energy to really think about what you want in your space. Minimal doesn't have to be boring - choose objects that are clean and simple with interesting details. I've put together a few items that would work great in a simple bedroom. Keep reading for more details, and a few inspiration images featuring minimalist chic bedrooms.
1. Princeton Junior Sconce - Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co. - $169
Free up space on the nightstand with a wall-mounted sconce. The adjustable arm allows you to shine the light where needed. There are a few different shade options - I like the look of the exposed Edison bulb.
2. The Venice Set - Bedding from Parachute - $269 for a Queen size bed
These luxurious sheets are made-in-Italy, and perfect for a chic, minimal look. Parachute's signature bedding set, the Venice, was made with simplicity in mind. The set comes with a fitted sheet, duvet cover, and 2 pillow cases - so you can ditch the flat sheet and save time making your bed everyday.
3. Free Range Side Table - Blu Dot - $349
The beauty is in the details of this sophisticated side table. It features an elegant marble top, solid walnut legs, brass detailing, and black steel frame for support.
4. The Olmsted Planter with Zamioculcus Zamifolia - The Sill - $48
The minimalist look can sometimes feel stark and boring, but a plant is a great way to bring some life and color into the space. The Sill is an adorable shop on the Lower East Side that inspires people to bring the outdoors in, and makes plant shopping easy and fun. They hand pick easy-to-care-for plants, and teach you how to look after them.
5. Vintage Rug - KayaKilims - $185
Kaya Kilims Etsy shop is a great source for one-of-a-kind vintage rugs from Turkey. I love the rich red and blue tones in this little number. In a minimalist space, a little color goes a long way.
6. Beveled Floor Mirror - West Elm - $399
A full-length mirror is a bedroom must - so you can check your look, and also make your room feel larger. The beveled glass and black faceted frame add visual interest, and make this mirror feel special.
