Is your gorgeous bedroom in gray starting to feel a touch too boring and bland with a change in the weather outside? While gray has been a ‘hip’ neutral that has ruled interiors for the past couple of years a bedroom clad completely in gray can seem both sterile and a bit too dull.
One of the best ways to go about this is by turning the attic into a cool kids’ bedroom as the sloped ceiling adds to the rustic style. Apart from ushering in the winter cabin look that you are after wood also adds plenty of textural contrast to the space and gives the bedroom a soothing yet fantastic ambiance.
With its simple but visually arresting frame the Palu Bayview daybed is a statement-making piece that would work just as nicely in a modern setting as it would in a more country cottage room. Its geometric floral pattern gives the bed a unique touch while an optional trundle allows for an extra houseguest to stay the night.
All you need are a few gorgeous throw pillows in bright red or cozy bedding in elegant scarlet along with a plush rug or a cool vase on the bedside table in a matching hue. As a rule the more neutral the backdrop the more visual impact your red accents will make.

The polished Polizi bench is both a beautiful centerpiece to display at the foot of your bed and a functional spot to throw your blazer when you get home from work. The x-shaped legs keep the design light and airy while the tufted cushion would be a comfy place to curl up with a good book.
