It is white and blue that traditionally ushers in the magic of sun, sand and surf into your bedroom. But go down a different route this summer and replace the white in that equation with far more exciting shades of gray. Apart from giving your nautical or coastal style bedroom a fresh, new look, replacing white with gray gives you greater decorating freedom and a chance to try out newer shades of blue. In fact, you can fill the backdrop with light gray and maybe even a hint of white and use pops of teal, turquoise or periwinkle for greater visual impact. From bedding and drapes to a complete bedroom furniture set in blue, a gray background lets you switch between hues with ease.
Sure, you want a fabulous nightstand that can hold your latest gadgets, provide some tabletop space for the lovely lamp and even tuck away some of the mess around your bed. But getting all that done on a budget is even more fun! A DIY box-style bedside table is easy to craft and you can use everything ranging from worn-out, vintage trunks and cinder blocks to a simple wooden crate and a few metallic beams. The idea is simple, does not take more than a weekend and you have a nightstand that is well and truly unique.
Darker shades of gray can also be used in small bedrooms to create a dashing and more masculine space. Once you go down this route, ensure that the rest of the room remains as uncluttered and neutral as possible with sparingly used blue accents. In the bedroom, everything from the pillows and bed sheets to drapes and vases can be used to add color and with changing trends you can even move away from blue and adopt a completely different color scheme.
Dubbed Smart, Store and Mixer, each of these designs can be used both as open closets and walk-in closets depending on the amount of space that you can spare. But it is the open closet compositions that steal the show, as they turn a simple, plain wall into a stunning and ergonomic organizational unit complete with varying shelves, cabinets and racks that will help tuck away your entire wardrobe. Add a couple of sliding glass doors to these units, and they assume an entirely different aura even as the sleek, floating shelves bring an air of lucidity to each creative composition.
