Summer House Bedroom
Summer is in full swing, and itís time to take a deep breath and soak your stress away.

The function of any bedroom is first and foremost to provide a restful environment for sleeping. There shouldnít be anything disturbing or jarring in a bedroom, even if youíre using the most modern style of design.


In this room, everything is conducive to resting, so the roomís primary function is completely fulfilled. But this bedroom also functions well not just for providing a good nightís sleep, but also for providing a comfortable place in which to read or enjoy the view of the water.

Youíll note that here the tall windows have no curtains, so that might make you think the room would be difficult for sleeping late into the morning, something we all love to indulge in during vacations. But notice the curtains around the bed itself: close these curtains and youíve shut out the morning light, and youíve also created a cozier and more intimate space around the bed.

The night stands on either side of the bed also function well; when a couple is using the bed, each person will have access to books, reading light, or alarm clock.

The mood of this room is a relaxed one, and the antique furniture creates an old-fashioned feeling, bringing a visitor back to a slower, simpler time. But it isnít stuffy; the antiques are arranged in a modern way, and the carpet and modern windows and doors to the balcony undercut any potential stuffiness from the old-fashioned furniture.

The swags of curtain material draped around the bed add to the mood, recalling colonialistsí luxurious homes in the Caribbean islands.

Finally, letís look at the harmony of the room: Everything works together here, and nothing is out of place. The fact that pale, summery colors dominate the room makes harmonizing easy: the white bedspread sets the standard as the brightest thing in the room, since the walls are slightly more tea-colored, and the carpet is slightly darker still. The wood of the furniture, and the maroon throw pillows on the bed, further bring in deeper tones that prevent the room from appearing cold or sterile.
