The bedroom is one space in which we like to be extra careful when it comes to trying new and flashy trends. The ideal bedroom is a space that feels relaxing but still has character, and our favorite aesthetic approach is to combine modern and traditional elements.


So, what in this space feels traditional? A rug with an antique-inspired motif, an upholstered bed in a neutral color, and a side lamp that has a slight industrial edge. As for the modern elements, try abstract art above the bed, pillows in interesting patterns, and an accent chair that has just a dash of midcentury inspiration.
