It is a known fact that we spend a third of our lives in bed, and as such, we should take a lot of time to consider our decorating choices for the bedroom. The bedroom should really reflect your personality and become a place of sanctitude where you can truly relax away from the day’s stresses, somewhere where you can get a good night’s sleep and feel comfortable.
Different lighting, colours, textures and materials all play a key part in creating the perfect ambience, so it’s important to consider each and every part carefully. Incorporating a slab of natural stone or eye-catching marble into your bedroom scheme can have a great impact. Some even believe that certain stones and materials can reduce anxiety and stress or even have certain healing properties! From colourful statement headboards to full feature walls, there are so many different options when it comes to working with stone in the bedroom.
Colourful bedroom walls
Colour choices can have a direct impact on our mood. The type of person you are and what type of energy you have both in the mornings and at night should influence the colour choices you make. Bold primary colours will stir up the senses and keep you energised, whilst softer, paler tones will instil a sense of calm.
There are so many varieties of colourful marble, granites and man-made alternatives available that there really are no limits on what to choose for your bedroom walls. Whatever you choose, make sure you plan the rest of your scheme accordingly. We advise getting plenty of samples and seeing how they look next to your chosen fabrics, paint colours and any other finishes for the room. Make sure you know what your chosen surface is going to look like in your bedroom – it’ll look different to in our stone yard out in the daylight!
Sophisticated hotel-style bedrooms
Crisp whites, pearlescent and metallic finishes and sophisticated neutrals often grace hotel bedrooms. If you’re looking to replicate that luxurious feeling at home then consider a slab in a grey, beige or brown colour palette. This more neutral, toned-down approach will allow you to dress your space with beautiful fabrics and finishes, creating a wonderfully cohesive yet calming space.
Statement headboard ideas
If you really want to make a statement out of your chosen stone, then making it your actual headboard will have the desired effect. Opt for a contrasting colour or pattern against the wall to create a real focal point. Here, a striking monochrome scheme is brought to life through the eye-catching veining of the Panda White marble, whilst the Polished Jade headboard coordinates beautifully with a complementary colour palette of rust hues and pink shades against its emerald tone.
Pared-back & detailed bedroom surfaces
A pared-back grey or stone-coloured surface can add texture and warmth to a bedroom scheme. Teamed with a wood floor, linen bedsheets and a minimal colour palette, the Moleanos honed limestone is perfect for those wanting to go for that relaxed yet calming feel. In a similar way, grey slabs with intricate veining will create impact without overpowering a space. Used on the wall behind the bed, the Platinum Macaubus quartzite features dark grey and white veining on a lighter grey background. Teamed with terracotta sheets, a statement wood bedside table and natural-coloured curtains, the bedroom instantly feels natural, warm and comforting as well as extremely stylish.
