Time to repose in style with this year’s Decorex Joburg Bedroom Project

Creating the perfect home sanctuary requires the subtle fusion of on-trend colour and style with personalised décor items. This year’s Decorex Joburg Bedroom Project installation – taking place at Gallagher Convention Centre from 7 to 11 August – welcomes the city’s leading designers and craftsmen, ready to curate a range of enviable bedroom settings.

“The bedroom is a really iconic space for style because it will truly reflect the user’s personal preferences and tastes that aren’t necessarily for display,” explained Sian Cullingworth, Portfolio Director at Reed Exhibitions. “While we strive for colours and décor pieces that are on-trend, it’s important that the bedroom is a space of comfort which means incorporating objects that have personal significance. This year’s Bedroom Project will give visitors some really unique ideas that can be customised for the individual.”

For a taste of ‘Persian and Middle Eastern influences’, visitors can step into The Homelife Store’s colourful feature outfitted with Turkish ceramics, cushions, throws and accessories all enhanced by unique lighting and Venucasa mattresses. Promoting local talent, all the furniture featured by The Homelife Store is manufactured in South Africa. Rishal Nulliah said visitors will experience a hand-picked collection of iconic décors: “The solid wooden bed featuring at The Bedroom Project is modelled on those used by sultans and will turn any home into a palace!”

Anita’s Interiors will be bringing in bold colours and florals with an overriding sense of elegance within comfort, enhanced by Bed King mattresses. Commenting on their Bedroom Project, Ingrid Meyer said: “There will be a contemporary bed complete with white, high-gloss pedestals and a dark blue velvet backing. We are also creating an in-room lounge space with a classic gold, deep diamond couch to soften the contemporary look. Using two, white, fur-lined chairs, we will then marry the two looks. This will be accented by cushions and fur throws in gold, dark blue and white.”

Emphasising the ‘bed’ in ‘bedroom’, Born Interior Design will be ‘going big and bold’ while making use of the Simmons mattress range. “We will make a statement with a luxurious headboard, upholstered in the finest of fabrics complete with Chesterfield accents to create a chic and elegant look,” explained Mariza Pistorius. “Your bedroom should be your sanctuary retreat – the place where you curl up under a blanket with a cup of coffee and a good book on a cold winter’s day.”

Using Olympic Paints’ Brazil Nut Matt PVA as a base palette, Born Interior Design will be incorporating warmer blush tones with accents of contrasting jewel tones and a touch of African couture: “Golden accents still seem to take the spotlight as well as more bold geometric shapes,” continued Mariza. “Another trend enjoying a lot of attention is using wooden and steel elements with darker contrasting colours for a bit of modern drama. Overall it seems as if the pin-tuck neatly made bed is moving more towards a trend of thoughtfully messy. Rooms are feeling more lived in and adorned by the user. Mixing the unmatched in just the right way so that the room works in perfect harmony, together with layering of textures.”

Melonwoods Indonesian Furniture & Décor Wood – using the Mattress King range – will show Decorex visitors how to incorporate wooden furniture into the bedroom without it looking overwhelming: “Our installation will display how to mix various wood types and styles in a room to create a well put-together bedroom that is pleasing on the eye and very comfortable,” explained Carley Botha. “The wood will be balanced by darker charcoal and brighter green hues. In trends, we have noticed the move back to bringing raw wood and wood with a visible grain in it into the bedroom, mixed with metal elements such as brass handles and legs on bedside tables.”

In the KVH Furniture & Designs installations, visitors will then get an exclusive look at some of the company’s handcrafted furniture, all of which is manufactured to individual specifications. For this dynamic feature, the Simmons mattress will be showcased.
