Add Architecture to Your Bedroom Design
Choosing the right piece of furniture can make an enormous difference in whether your bedroom feels like a bland box or a stately escape with as much visual intrigue as your home’s public spaces. In this bedroom for the San Francisco Decorator Showcase, interior designer Michael Burg included a hefty antique Napoleonic cabinet with an ebony-and-gilt finish for storing books and accessories. The bold black furnishing keeps the room man-friendly (it’s a given that women will love it), and the piece’s scale and design lift the space from the mundane by adding an architectural gravitas.
Tip: The benefits of black furniture for the bedroom can’t be overemphasized. Include a large black cabinet for architectural interest in a room that is lacking; use a black furnishing to anchor a light and airy design; and appease the man of the house with a black furnishing that’s a nod to his masculinity.
