Aparna Kaushik shows how to design a contemporary bedroom
Conceived in soothing neutral palettes, each of the luxurious bedrooms is a picture of elegance, calm and, most importantly, supreme comfort
New-Delhi-based Architect Aparna Kaushik has unveiled a collection of exquisitely created bedrooms that not only look gorgeous with well thought-out design, but also have a quiet and restful vibe about them.
Each of the luxurious bedrooms is a picture of elegance, calm and most importantly, supreme comfort. Conceived in soothing neutral palettes, they brim with tonal variations that create exhilarating sensations. Each bedroom showcases some exclusive design features like mouldings on the walls and ceilings, hand-picked accessories, artworks, lights, including some beautiful window dressing. And of course, the beds are showered with the most attention in terms of structure, upholstery and elaborate headboards. Sumptuous layers of textiles take them to another level of luxury.
A warm colour palette creates a soothing air in this expansive bedroom with herringbone pattern flooring. Ebony matte finish with vertical grains adorns the wall behind the bed and the TV console. The cornflower blue coloured bed has a headboard stitched in an interesting pattern. While the moulding on the walls and the furniture design ooze classical impressions, the abstract painting adds a contemporary touch.
A modern and clean look infused by a neutral colour scheme, Satvario slabs with bookmarks on wall behind the entertainment panel and minimal layering in the ceiling, gives this bedroom an airy feeling. The fully upholstered bed with the play of multiple fabrics in muted shades adds chicness to the ambience, while the wooden finished surfaces offer much warmth. The slim-line glass sliders allow the nature to pour in.
A muted monochrome environment bristles with subtle ornamentation, quaint motifs and quirky touches. The sleek bed stool with a stitching pattern on the side, a plain top and brass-finished legs acts as ornamentation for the bed. The quaint motifs along with the mouldings add a classical touch. A hanging lighting fixture on one side and a variant of the same kept on the side table add a bit of quirkiness.
A neutral environment comes alive with the soft hues of blush pink arm chairs, the blue of the bed and the abstract painting. The brass profile detailing on the tall headboard and the brass finished legs of the bed stool impart a subtle gleam to the space. The herringbone pattern flooring keeps the ambience warm.
Symmetry, classical features and complex details are the highlight of this pretty-looking bedroom. Island wooden basket weave flooring sided with michaelangelo Italian marble sets a warm centre stage for the bed. The back wall is elaborately designed with panel fluting in leatherite on the far sides and plain texture padding with T-profile brass detailing in the centre, making for an opulent statement. A perfectly stitched headboard and a metal artifact above add to the layers of interest. The two poufs with brass-finished legs at the end of the bed complement the imperial air. While the step false ceiling with detailing, along with a classical chandelier, further add to the regal atmosphere.
