1. Casa RJ in Mantua, Italy | ARCHIPLAN STUDIO
Archiplan Studio was tasked to overhaul an entire building in the ancient city of Manuta, Italy, one example of the beautiful work created is Casa RJ. It's impossible to miss the historical details of the structure, the detailed ceilings and walls and yet Archiplan cleverly melded contemporary styling and furnishings together with the old. The bedroom in this stunning apartment is a spatial and visual delight. The colour palette rarely extends beyond neutrals; light timber on the parquetry flooring, light timber luxury bedroom furniture. Even the wall separating the ensuite features the same toned timber; providing a clever layering of materials that provides depth and softness to the room.
2. Highbury Grove in Melbourne, Australia | RITZ & GHOUGASSIAN
A minimalist and monochromatic colour palette create a calming sanctuary in this Melbourne master bedroom. Shades of grey together with crisp white linen and concrete from the walls to the floor are warmed with timber wardrobes lining one wall. A distinct lack of luxury bedroom furniture other than the low-lying bed mean this bedroom is the ideal place to sleep. Minimal distractions, maximum relaxation.
3. Treetop House Sydney, Australia | ARENT & PYKE
Highly sought after Sydney based designers Arent & Pyke are known for their harmonious use of colour and light. Experts at creating homes that balance luxury and comfort, this bedroom in the designers' much loved project Treetop House is the perfect example of just that. Soft tones of mauve and pink provide a beautiful compliment to the metallic finishings & linen bedding for those who are looking for a luxurious feminine space at the end of the day.
4. Sea Ranch Escape, San Francisco, USA | BUTLER ARMSDEN ARCHITECTS
It's tough to find fault with this master bedroom, part of the Sea Range Escape home by Butler Armsden Architects in San Francisco, USA. Wood panelled walls, soft carpets, light furnishings make this the type of bedroom you would retire to long before bedtime.
5. The Freshwater Project, Sydney, Australia | OLIVIA BOSSY
One of the easiest ways to keep your bedroom serene, is to limit the colour palette to two tones; ideally fresh white/cream and light timber. Designer Olivia Bossy styled this beachside home with soft modernism, the master bedroom is no exception. Super clean lines and minimal fuss makes this a space that reminds us of a European coastal getaway. What a perfect place to lay your head at the end of a long day.
