Laurent. Bedroom. October 11th , 2017.
A snuggly rug, good idea as it is to have all-wood floors to make things easier to clean, in winter, your feet won’t take too kindly to stepping on to a hard, cold floor (or a splinter!). Make the getting-out-of-bed experience a whole lot more forgiving by treating yourself to a plush rug – there’s nothing like swinging out of bed and twiddling your toes in those fluffy fibres.
Make a statement, a statement bed will do the talking in both compact and large bedrooms. If space is limited, either use a bed that offers plenty of in-built hidden storage, or space underneath to store boxes and vacuum bags. Debra McQuin at McQuin Partnership suggests choosing bedside tables or ergonomic wall-mounted lights. ‘Try to think creatively,’ she says. ‘If there is no space for a headboard, then paint one on the wall. And in all bedrooms, small or large, a sense of real luxury comes from a good mattress, high thread-count sheets, and a soft rug to step out of bed onto. These are the things that make the most difference to a sense of well-being.’ In this scheme, a vibrant wallpaper and full-length curtains create a sense of cosseting luxury.
The Rainbow room, every colour under the sun helps spell out H-A-P-P-Y in this fun, glorious room. Coordination? We’re having none of it – just throw everything into the mix and enjoy the result. After all, life’s too short to worry. Moody blue, soft grey walls, shadows moving across the bed, trompe l’oeil wallpaper, this space has hidden depths. Check out the iconic table lamp sitting behind the padded headboard (how do they do that?) and the egg-shaped chair that is defiantly mid-century modern. Maybe a masked avenger sleeps here.
As the Sleep Foundation say, a good mattress is paramount to a good night sleep. Caring for your mattress is important too – vacuum it, flip it every so often and you are recommended to buy a new one every eight years.This marbled grey scheme could have us floating in the clouds in no time, but equally honey tones and heavenly white will send you off to the land of nod.
