The Haven You're Craving

I have been lucky enough to have an article written by a guest blogger especially for StyleHideout! Here is a quick guide to a modern bedroom by ModernDesignBlog.com. All of the photographs are from AllModern.com, a great source for modern furniture. Enjoy!

Your bedroom is the place where you start and end each day. It is a place of retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and is a space you can make uniquely your own by creating an atmosphere that puts you at peace and provides the serenity you desire at the end of the day. Though we all have our different tastes, the essential factor here is that your bedroom provides a haven all your own and remains a place of comfort and self-expression. What better way to expand the design of your haven than by filling it with the original styles of contemporary furniture?

With the many unique designs offered by modern and contemporary d├ęcor, creating a modern bedroom haven has never been easier. In many cases, the most important part of obtaining the tranquility you desire begins simply with your choice of lighting. Modern wall sconces and pendant lighting are perfect choices for achieving the atmosphere you crave.

Next is the furniture. Modern dressers and platform beds are usually simple in design, helping to avoid a cluttered look. Platform beds are also an easily accessible centerpiece.

All in all, it comes down to your own tastes and budget, but these are just a few ideas toward creating the modern bedroom haven of your dreams.
