I shared my bedroom mood board a few weeks ago. Cash is a little bit tight but I mentioned I'm on the lookout for an upholstered bed for a cosier feel that's more comfortable than the metal frame we currently have, and something that fits within a grey colour scheme.
I've found a really great place to buy a bed frame, that allows you to choose the size and fabric you want, choose the base you want and choose the feet. It's essentially creating your own dream bed, for the same price you'd spend on a regular bed could have had to compromise on in some way.
I love how there's a little room underneath the bed for a small amount of storage. I chose the Dove, Contemporary Plain Texture material with Walnut feet for a simple style that a variety of bed linen colours would look good on (very important for an interior blogger!)
This has a much more sturdy look to it than the Lily bedstead above. It doesn't have a rolled back headboard meaning it'll sit flush against the wall leaving more space at the base. I've chosen Argent velvet for this one, to add a bit of luxury where the shape is lacking.
A braver choice in fabric and shape. This is the Pistachio Contemporary Plain Texture fabric that I think would bring a really vibrant look to our grey scheme. I'm not sure whether I'll grow sick of the colour through time, but yet I always go for safe options. Maybe it's worth the risk?
A more muted coloured fabric this time in 'Corn' and very basic shape, meaning I can dress it up any which way I like for photo shoots. I prefer buttons on the headboard but for sake of versatility and shooting different looks, sometimes less is more. The colour would tie in well with the grey scheme too without being too 'woah there' like the Eliza above.
What I love about this, which the similar Poppy lacks in, are the ornate looking legs. Lots of the beds on Button and Sprung have basic chunky legs, whereas I like a little more detail. This one is in velvet too and I think of all of them, ticks the right boxes for my needs. It's still very 'safe' though.
Which bed would you choose?
