An interior designer took on the challenge of creating a calm and stylish bedroom in a small space, balancing plenty of storage with a minimalist look.
Use natural materials to add warmth to a minimalist palette. “I mixed bamboo, rattan, linen and cotton in natural shades,” says Helen. Wall-mounted EKET storage serves as a space-saving bedside table. “The KNIXHULT pendant lamp gives a warm and welcoming atmosphere, without taking up space on the ‘table’.”
Helen chose the MALM bed frame for its clean, minimalist design and added a storage box under the bed. “The RÖMSKOG box makes the most of the floorspace taken up by a large bed, and the braided rattan suits the room’s natural look. It has a lid, so your out-of-season clothes will remain dust-free and ready to wear.”
Add style to a storage unit. “I put two MALM chests of drawers side-by-side to provide lots of storage for a couple, but it also creates a beautiful display area for plants and books,” says Helen. “To keep the feeling of space and light, I hung a gallery of posters on the wall above with some additional lamps.”
