American culture has always been a source of great curiosity and awe due to the serenity it evokes as a result of its simplicity and minimalism. Due to the stressfulness at the office, more and more homeowners have chosen to emulate the tranquility of contemporary bedroom design. Being in a American inspired bedroom provides quietude and calmness, away from the bustle of the modern world.
In designing a contemporary bedroom, one has to consider the salient aspects vital in American bedroom design. Contemporary bedrooms are marked by simplicity and minimalism for a pared-down look. Careful thought is put into bedroom designs. Each piece is carefully considered, not only for aestheticism of the bedroom, but, more importantly, for function of the bedroom. Moreover, bedroom furniture placing and type symbolize the Zen philosophy that the Japanese believe in.
Use of natural materials and natural light also defines contemporary style. Natural materials such as stones and wood are used for a low-key look that is equally appealing to the senses. Since natural light would be the main source of illumination, lighting fixtures are either concealed or recessed or are altogether minimized. The use of muted colors, such as greens and grays, are also helpful in minimizing the bedroom visual “noise” and business, a vital aspect of achieving serenity and tranquility.(hkm)
