A Fresh + Modern Bonus Room

We love the idea of having a bonus room within your home.  The options are endless with what you could do with this bonus space. This space can be geared for movie nights and/or extra room for entertaining guests.  For this fresh + modern bonus room design, NFID curated a fresh and modern vibe bringing together comfort and style.Fresh Contrast

The colour scheme for this space focused on navy and white accents.  The contrasting use of dark and light colours throughout the room kept the fresh and modern vibe.  Along with the navy, dark wood was also used to add contrast against the white in the space.

The white wood railing by Artistic Stairs, allows the walls and floor to flow together when coming into the bonus room.  This makes the room brighten up, remaining airy and fresh.  While creating an open space feeling.  Upon walking into the room, a navy stairwell pendant is showcased.  This pendant (Penelope Pendant in navy, N808) was designed by Robert Abbey.  This piece comes together with the rest of the navy accents within the room.Continuing the theme of contrasts, vintage mid-century pieces are also seen in the bonus area.  These pieces contain lighter wood complementing the white fabric seen on the armchair and floor lamp.  The vintage mid-century armchair was reupholstered by NFID to compliment the floor lamp and colour scheme of the rest of the room.  To add extra pizzazz, the vintage mid-century floor lamp is held by a unique base.

Modern Design

Overall, the space itself focuses on modern design.  Which can be seen from staple pieces such as the couch, or finishing touches like the BoConcept Black wire basket.  Placed next to the mid-century pieces, this effectively gives the room a subtle and unique twist.  This wire basket is used as storage for extra throws for residents and guests use and disposal.  Right before they nestle into the G.Romano Domino sectional (in JF Fabric Eric, Charcoal).

In addition, custom made toss cushions were created for this room, and are placed throughout the seating areas on the couch and the armchair.  An Eileen Grey Adjustable table in polished chrome and glass is an arm’s reach away from the couch.  Acting as the perfect piece for the final touch of modern design.

Anthropologie Style Girls Room

Natural elements and an earthy feel are the epitome of rustic style.  For this girl bedroom design, NFID created a unique and modern twist on a traditional rustic bedroom.  Combining natural and earthy with fun and modern colours.   Along with antique pieces with modern furniture, NFID brought together an Anthropologie style girls room.

Earth Elements

The headboard of the bed, is undeniably the most eye-catching piece of the bedroom.  This piece is made of wood sticks acting as a tall headboard.  Not only does this piece provide a stunning visual of an earth element within the bedroom.  But also provides a textural piece for the overall space.  A contrasting more modern earth element can be further seen in the corner pawn stool.  This Gus Modern Pawn Stool is made of walnut.  It’s modern in shape, contrasting effectively with the natural wood stick frame of the headboard.  Balancing both modern and rustic inspiration.  Earth tones can also be seen on the custom made chartreuse green velvets pillows laying on the bed.

Modern Touches

The modern pieces adding to our twist on a traditional rustic bedroom, can be seen in the final touches within the space.  Bright, fun and pops of colour give this room extra pizzazz.  Which can be seen on the fuchsia linen double euro pleated drapery hanging on satin chrome drapery hardware.  In addition to the EQ3 teal tweed pillows and black edition Jessica Zoob painted velvet pillows.  These gorgeous 20” x 12” throw pillows are from the Breathe cushion Wild Flower collection (JZC115/01).  A custom teal throw was also made to increase the pop of colour to the room.  Successfully contrasting with the white linen bedding and white faux throw draped at the end of the bed.

Vintage Vibes

Antique pieces give this bedroom complete the rustic roots of this design.  Effectively completing the Anthropologie inspired space.  On the dresser, an antique teal fan brings together both the modern pop of colour and rustic inspired designs.  In addition to the antique white book ends displayed next to it.

The entire space comes together beautifully with its mixture of muted and bright colours.  In addition to the mixture of natural and modern elements!

Beach Boy’s Bedroom

Designing children’s bedrooms are always so much fun.  Working together, brainstorming ideas with families gives us the optimal opportunity to create imaginative rooms.  These creative designs then shine throughout the space.  This Beach Boy’s Bedroom showcases a child’s unique interests and personality.

For this space, NFID created a beach theme, with a focus on sea elements.  This boy bedroom has ocean blue tones spread throughout the room, giving us the feeling of being right at sea.

Ocean Blues

The furnishing and details for this space heavily focused on an ocean tide palette of blues and whites.  The room displays a painted dark blue twin wooden bed with matching two drawer night stand.  A navy Ikea duvet cover along with sham (Ikea ALVINE STRÅ) covers the bed, presenting the main colour palette for this space.

At the bottom edge of the bed, we placed two navy poufs on the floor.  A perfect seating area for friends and family.  On the right side of the bed is a retro vintage white floor lamp.  A unique, yet classic retro piece on its own, with its two-lamp head feature.

Ride the Wave

Key pieces within the room often reflect and highlight the key theme of the space.  One key item being the navy and white ocean art that is placed throughout the room.  These art pieces are custom made prints, made specially for this room. In addition to the custom-made wave print pillow.  This pillow is complete with feather/down insert and fabric designed by Kravet Jeffrey Alan Marks in Waterwave River 516.

Additional custom-made pieces are featured in this bedroom.  Personalized pieces such as the coverlet placed on the end of the bed.  A navy and white coverlet in fabric by Jeffrey Alan Marks Frame in River 516. NFID contributes to the personalized touch of the space.  Drapes were created by NFID, matching the palette of the room.  The drapes feature fabric in Duralee Fabric Stripe Blue 32662 – 5 blue and JF Fabrics polished chrome drapery hardware and grommets.

Each piece reflects back to the creative vision this family had for this boy bedroom, making it truly special place for this little boy!
