Did you fall in love with the interior fashion while on your European tour? If so, you might consider bringing some of your vacations back to your home with new European bedroom furniture and décor. In addition to finding bedroom sets in European styles that can be delivered right to your door, you can incorporate keepsakes from your vacation in the décor.
Here are some of the best ideas for bringing Europe into your bedroom. You can check out beds like these and buy on 1stopbedrooms.
Much of the furniture throughout Europe is based on the Italian Renaissance style. This traditional furniture is what most people think of as medieval. It features heavy and ornate carvings, often consisting of elements from mythology. The furniture is also very heavy, making it durable but difficult to move, so if you like to rearrange your bedroom furniture frequently this might not be the right style for you.
To go along with your new Italian Renaissance bed, take your artwork, postcards, flower petals, passports, or other memorabilia and put them into heavily carved frames or shadow boxes in the same tone and style as your furnishings.
Furniture in the French style can vary greatly depending on what time period you want to consider. There are a few things that the French have always done with their interior décor. Any furniture out of France before the modern era features soft curved lines, elegant frames, and intricate ornamentation or paintings. Delicate carvings are also frequently found throughout French styles.
If you want to redecorate your bedroom in the French style, you should choose frames for your keepsakes that are more delicate, slender, and unobtrusive. Use soft pastels as a background for your memorabilia, allowing it to blend well with the furniture. If you purchase bed sets with gold flaking or a painting in neutral or natural colors, an antique yellowed world map or replica in a slender frame of dark polished wood will work well as additional décor.
You may not have realized that the art deco style was born in France until you visited there. In truth, like so many interior and apparel fashions, this trend started in France. In the early 1920s, art deco spread across the globe like wildfire. In that carefree time that ultimately led to disaster, people all over Europe and America were demanding renovations in the art deco interior design style.
Contrary to popular belief, art deco is about more than just contrasting black and white. The geometric shapes and straight lines were the beginnings of the mid-modern era, but still held some of the charms from past interior fashions. Glamour was key and is shown in the rich materials used to make these beds and other bedroom furnishings.
Framing your keepsakes in the art deco bedroom is pretty easy to do, and all you really need is a thin metal or black frame. Because much of the art deco furniture was made of metals, bedroom furniture in the industrial style can also be used to flesh out your art deco look.
