Want to know how to create a stunning eastern inspired bedroom? By selecting a bed from our Indian beds collection – bed designs inspired by India and made in Sheffield – and incorporating bedroom furniture, interesting and unusual accessories from around the world and the right colour palette – you can create the bedroom of your dreams….
Firstly find the right bed it will be the focus of your bedroom scheme. At Natural Bed Company we offer an exclusive range of beds designed by our director after his extensive travels to India, and made by our talented craftsmen at our Sheffield workshops. The Rajasthan is a dramatic four-poster Indian style bed – the perfect choice if you want to make a real statement! The Rajasthan has a elegant tapering posts with carved details to the upper posts. The Samarkand and the Mandalay complete our collection – these beds have carved details to the legs and the headboard posts. If you wish to combine an Indian ‘flavour’ with a modern western home these beds are a good choice.
Accessorize – Using a few authentic Indian or African accessories can add a richness to your scheme. A carved or inlaid mirror frame, or blanket box may be all you need. Take a look at Silk Road Gallery for unusual decorative accessories from India, Africa and the Far East. It is entirely at your discretion as to how far to take this look, simple white bedding and a few authentic accessories would give a more modern ‘minimalist’ interpretation, richly coloured and decorated bedding and accessories offer a more traditional version.
Attention to Detail – This can make or break a scheme! The addition of a tile/mosaic floor, authentic Indian or Moroccan lantern or a beautifully carved headboard – your attention to detail will take this look from ‘theme’ to ‘scheme’. Allow the look to reflect your interests, travels and passions. If you haven’t been lucky enough to wander the bazaars of India specialist retailers can be the answer – just find a piece you love and use it as the basis for your design.
Use Texture – Layering textures with your choice of bedding is a good way to add depth and richness to your scheme. Use soft cotton bedding, with Indian bedspreads and quilts and finishing the look with a loosely knitted or woven throw.
Choose Your Colour Scheme – As you can see from our Exotic Beds & Bedroom Furniture pinterest board simple white walls and richly wooden furniture can be all you need, but if you want to use colour – this is a very accommodating style! Deep, rich tones of terracotta, gold and purple are often associated with this style. Vibrant aquamarine, deep teal or jade also suit.
