This post is for Sophie in France who I have had the great pleasure to get to know via this amazing blog world. She is putting in hardwood floors in her master bedroom, which I so salute, and was looking for inspiration in terms of rugs and hardwood floor combinations and color schemes. Sophie, here are some of my personal faves and I hope that you might find something that inspires you!
I love everything about this room! And this carpet/rug like would look fantastic on any kind of hardwood floors. (I personally would have picked a contemporary bed light but that is just me).
A like the balance of the rug and the wooden floors here. I am always a frozen Popsicle when I wake up in the morning and the last thing I want to do is to step on cold hardwood floors (but I’d rather take that than wall-to-wall carpeting that is not appealing to me for many reasons). This allows me to wake up during a few steps before I hit the wood! (But I guess as plan B, I could resort to some good slippers…)
Since you live close to Paris Sophie, invest in a nice old bust. It is still on my wish list!
This is the bedroom of the famous designer Darryl Carter. I absolutely love, love this room! Look at all the wonderful details – and yet it does not feel contrived. The leather doors as panels are amazing.
Now here is another great solution. Large cow hides one each side instead of carpets.
No carpet at all. But the image with eclectic furnishings was so lovely that I had to show it anyway!
If you are looking for more color, then here is a room to be happy in.
I know that Sophie’s wall color is more towards yellow/gold. I think this room is wonderful. Both organic and chic. (And the beautiful throw ties it all together).
Fresh and crisp. And large rugs on each side. Don’t skimp on the rugs, people!
Vicente Wolf is another fantastic designer who knows what he is doing. I have a crush on that iconic leather chair.
Wow! A secret bedroom in the bedroom!
Borderline too conservative for me. But oh so pretty. And I love the texture of the rug.
Just add a splash of color – and you have a new room.
Chic indeed. And the wonderful wall display in the background needs to be copied.
How lovely with a large and functional seating/conversation area in the grand master bedroom.
Now, dear blog friends – any bedroom that you fancy?
