Is your bedroom looking dull and drab? Does it look more tired than you feel? Then why not bring it up to date with a modern contemporary look. When you mention contemporary to most people they think minimalistic, no character and expensive. But that doesn’t need to be the case. An up to date modern look in the bedroom can be accomplished by bringing some of your own personality to the room and including items and colours that make you feel good...and it doesn’t have to be expensive! A contemporary look doesn’t necessarily mean having a clinical gleaming white finish on all the walls making it feel like an operating theatre . While it is true that in contemporary design colours tend to be more natural to achieve a more comfortable relaxed atmosphere that doesn’t mean you are limited to only using white or cream. A little colour can give a bedroom added character while still maintaining a modern feel and soft colours like lilac, lavender, grey, or even a very pale blue can be used to make a room more interesting. Another way to add some colour is to buy an upholstered bed . The base and headboard are often available in shades like Bamboo, Pewter and Taupe which aren’t too obtrusive but just help add an extra dimension to the colour in the bedroom. Cushions, pillows and bedding are another way to add a splash of colour although you must keep in mind that the colours shouldn’t dominate the room and have to be soft and not overpowering. Contemporary designed bedroom furniture is a must to achieve the desired look and the Dakota range is simplistic, modern, while being really eye-catching at the same time. This range of furniture would be ideal for bringing a room bang up to date and making it look fresh and comfortable. Of course the centre piece in any room is the bed and choosing a design that compliments the decor is important. You could go for the wow factor with a bed like the Europa Icon which is ultra modern Italian design at its best. If you want to be a bit more conservative yet keep the modern feel, then the metal framed Milano has the stylish looks combined with a functional design.
