Laurent. Bedroom. October 11th , 2017.
Sleek storage, well-planned storage helps establish a peaceful bedroom scheme. In this room, simple built-in storage incorporating a window seat makes the most of limited space while providing a focal point. Maximise storage by using clever multi-functional furniture where suitable, using the walls and height of the room as well as the floor space. Here, form and function dovetail perfectly with the graphic tones and angular shapes of the wall-mounted light, headboard and side table providing both style and practicality.
Easy living, if space allows, introduce a living room feel into your bedroom for the ultimate in hotel boudoir chic. Chairs, upholstered ottomans, artwork, books and treasured collections in a zoned area will create a mini sitting area and add a touch of cosiness. In this scheme an antique dresser painted in a dramatic black provides a natural focus. ‘No matter how small your bedroom is, a chair is always practical,’ says Nicola Holden of Nicola Holden Designs. ‘If it causes too much clutter, consider plumping for something like the unobtrusive Ghost chair by Philippe Starck. Choose hard-working furniture such as ottomans and chests of drawers, and don’t neglect forgotten areas such as those above a door, where built-in shelving can look effective.
Beautiful beds with buttoned boards in creamy velvets or dramatic wrought iron work four-poster statements – pick a bed design you’ll want to fall into night after night.Everyone loves hotel bedding, so why can’t you have it at home too? Make sure you buy good quality sheets in a beautiful design, or opt for simplicity in white for a restful night. Be sure you launder and change the sheets regularly and if you are pushing the boat out, give them a little iron over too.
Something to make you laugh, a supersized inspiring quote, or funny word to start and end the day is a winner. A little optimism goes a long, long way. Divine artwork, blown-up snaps of lovely landscapes – think dreamy white-sand beaches or swaying palm trees – will help you drift off to the Land of Nod with ease. Flowers are also very calming – we love the orchid mural in this bijou dressing corner.
