Refuge In Your Bedroom

I brought my 80-year old father-Harry Hunt-to come and live with me and my wife after my mother died in January of that year. We didn’t want him to be alone in an empty house, especially as he had an incurable stomach cancer-the doctors said he was too old for the operation and chemo-therapy, so they sent him home to die.

Bedroom wardrobes can be magical things that open into other worlds! Many children over the years have had great adventures in bedroom wardrobes even if it’s just raiding them for dressing up clothes. Naturally, us adults have a little less imagination and tend to use wardrobes as boring storage! When I say boring that’s untrue as wow are there some stunning pieces out there that grace and enhance our bedrooms. You can let your imagination go in your bedroom when it comes to how you want the space to look.

Children’s rooms are not usually very large. So picking out furniture that can serve dual purposes often times makes the most sense. Like headboards that can double as a bookcase, or storage chests that double as stairs. Toy chests can make great seats too. Bunk beds are a fantastic option also if two children are sharing a room or for sleepovers. Trundle beds are great too because the second bed can slide underneath the main bed to give a lot more room for your child to play.

From the experiences of my family and friends, who have all shopped there thanks to his no gimmicks-gimmick which has lured us all into New Jersey, his furniture can be hit or miss. For instance, the Bob-O-Pedic has been excellent and will probably be the only piece of furniture left by next year even though I spent thousands of dollars at Bob’s Discount Furniture to furnish my new apartment.

OK so now we have faced the reality of the situation and decided we need to do something about our bedroom. What buy black bedroom furniture are we going to replace? A few bits and pieces or just completed rip the whole lot out and start again? Perhaps even give the room a new paint job too, completely start from scratch.

They are hard to make. Beyond everything else, the design and overall fitting of these can be difficult to do. In many instances, the complications come in the form of getting every detail just right. Unless you can tuck in those corners just right and get those tufts to look right, chances are good you will not like the finished project. Instead, focus on buying something that is already made for you.

Now it’s time for the fun part – choosing your color palette! For a laid back atmosphere, get pastels. For drama, get bold contrasting colors. Remember, the hues and shades you choose are very powerful elements of your design. So make sure the ones you go with are truly what you want. Different weights in color will also matter in creating a certain look. The standard way to balance them is to have at least 60 percent of your design in a dominant color, thirty percent in a secondary color and ten percent in accents.
