Here is a room in a chiaroscuro setting that highlights contemporary furniture and a pared-down bed to create a dramatic, Zen-like effect.
A Bed in the Spotlight
The clear focal point of this setting, the bed reigns supreme at the centre of the room, even with its deliberately understated form and simple white sheets! The bed’s unexpected placement adds a theatrical element to the decor—an effect that’s enhanced by the contrast of the black walls and the classical ornamentation. As a result, the minimalist look of the upholstered bed catches the eye and creates a sense of calm.
Try this type of arrangement in a loft or large room with high ceilings to fill or separate the bedroom space in an original way. You could even place the bed on a diagonal to change the proportions of the room. Then, behind the headboard, a world of possibilities awaits, whether you choose a walk-in closet, a small desk or extra storage space. In every case, choose a bed with a low profile and a discreet headboard so as not to overwhelm the rest of the decor or obstruct your view.
