Beds are where you spend the best moments of life. They got to be the most thoughtfully chosen element of the house. And if you are looking to upgrade yours this year, here’s all the inspiration you need and in fact quite enough to fill your bucket list for years to come.
For those who love grandeur
Hollywood of the 1930s | Choose one of these beds if you are attracted to glitz and opulence redolent of the Golden Age of Hollywood. Only, be warned that getting one will make you want to refurbish your bedroom, buy more plush linen and possibly also upgrade your lingerie and sleepwear collection to match the resplendence of it!

Vintage love | If old world charm, femininity and vibes of romance are what you cherish, let your bed bring out exactly that aesthetic. And when we say vintage, we don’t mean those exquisite but tad uncomfortable wrought iron beds – you can instead get a sweet balance between beauty and functionality with beds that incorporate old-world aesthetics and contemporary design excellence.

Metallics | If you want to step away from the regular wooden bed, here are some majestic metallics to inspire you. When you do get a metallic bed though, make sure the other metal accents in the bedroom match with the colour of it, be it in side lamps, picture frames or curtain rods.

For the trendsetter
Divinely minimal | The last year may have seen a resurgence of maximalism but that does nothing to the position its antithesis has consolidated over the years. Minimal design in beds will go strong in 2019 with clean lines, modest colours and no superfluous ornamentation.

Low floor beds | Low floor beds have an exceptionally relaxing vibe about them. Two of our favourite styles include: Scandinavian: white, functional and uncluttered, and mid-century modern: low height wooden furniture with a streamlined appearance.

Upholstered headboards | A statement headboard makes for a smart bedroom décor idea. You can go all the way up to the ceiling for a majestic appearance. Choose from a variety of materials like leather, fabric or foam and have a most pleasant time entertaining the night owl in you with a novel or Netflix.

Canopy beds | Canopy or four-poster beds are the veterans of a luxurious slumber. Adorn yours with breezy overflowing curtains or keep it neat with soft pastel linens draped around the posters.

For the love of contemporary design
Storage friendly | Utility is indeed a good idea but the combination of utility and aesthetics is where the excitement lies. While built-in storage beds are no novelty at all, the new ones on the block are far prettier than their ancestors – they look quite as good as their non-storage counterparts while bringing to the table a whole lot of convenience.

Sleep millennial style with rollaway & loft beds | A bed that multi-tasks is just what your modern, ultra-smart lifestyle commands. For apartment dwellers with restricted space, rollaway beds lend the much-needed flexibility to instantly transform a bedroom into a living area. Likewise, loft beds let you go very creative in how you utilize the space – you can have a built-in study, lots of cabinets or a cosy reading nook under your bed.

Floating beds | What’s better than a floating bed in an ultra-luxury hotel? A floating bed at home. When you sleep in a bed that magically floats in the air, how would dreams be any short of divine bliss? To further enhance the magic, go for a big round floating bed.
