Bedroom Inspiration

A year or two ago, I came across an article on GQ that really caught my eye. Titled "Wake Up Your Bedroom," it displays five photos of a simple, yet beautiful modern bedroom. Now, I'm no interior design guru, but I do appreciate thoughtful living space aesthetics, and I think these pictures are on point.

By the way, I find it hilarious that GQ feels the need to post up a woman in some of these photos. Perhaps they want to convince you that with a bedroom like this, you can easily attain a supermodel girlfriend who will sit on your chair half-naked reading magazines while you're off at work. Oh GQ...

Okay, now four quick thoughts on the bedroom design:

1. Platform beds are awesome. Dark oak platform beds are even awesomer. <-- real word?

2. I love the dark blue color scheme. Dark blue sheets, dark blue walls, dark blue furniture... If I didn't rent, I'd do this myself. Also really makes the bright paintings and wooden furniture pop.

3. The article encourages a neat room overall, but a bit of manufactured (and highly curated) clutter - see mess on floor and TV stand. I think it's a bit unnatural/fake to carefully curate each small pile of mess in your room, but I do like the juxtaposition of a neat living space with some subtle carelessness.

4. Details matter. Look at the complementary color of the blanket. Or the symmetry of the nightstands + lamps. Or matching blacks on the furniture trim, TV, and clock. Oh yeah, and how her lingerie matches the floor rug. Just playin'.

Anyhow, hopefully this article gives you a little inspiration to go home and spice up your room. A clean and aesthetically pleasing bedroom can be a beautiful thing, especially if you're the type that needs a haven to come back to after a long hard day.
