When it comes to interior design, the bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the house. As the space in which we fall asleep and wake up every day, it can have a considerable impact on your mood. For this reason, many of us are keen to realise our decorative dreams in the bedroom and do all we can to ensure that all of our criteria are met.
There’s no harm to thinking big when it comes to interior design and so it’s no surprise that cinema can offer us plenty of inspiration. Here, we consider a number of bedroom design ideas that draw their inspiration from some classics from the big screen.
Behind The Candelabra
The recent film documenting the life of pianist Liberace pays full testament to the decadence of his ways, and nowhere is this more evident than in the decoration of his home. Liberace’s life epitomises the soul of showbiz and his home was no different. While you might not be keen enough to go to quite the same lengths, there are a few things that can be taken from the film in terms of design.
Perhaps the most notable feature in the set design of Behind The Candelabra is the multitude of mirrors. This is a great message to take away when considering a makeover of your bedroom. Mirrors are a great way to create the illusion of space and make the room lighter.
The Royal Tenenbaums
The bedroom of Margot in The Royal Tenenbaums is luxurious and over the top, but it is also brilliantly stylish. The walls are covered with books, which is a great way to bring some texture to the room without making it feel cluttered. The best way to use space in this way is to consider fitted bedrooms designed by Betta Living. You can then add few ornaments in the room, such as a typewriter and a record player.
The Great Gatsby
Fitzgerald’s classic carries opulence as one of its major themes, something which the film portrays thoroughly successfully. The Great Gatsby bedroom style is all about scale and class. Think about adding candles and cushions and you’re already halfway there. Styles like this will work best in large spaces – particularly in rooms with high ceilings.
