Laurent. Bedroom. September 15th , 2017.
Lovely linen (changed often!), invest in the best you can afford, so you can sleep easy – you may prefer cotton, you might go for linen, you might lust after silk. Whichever you choose, it’s the quality that counts. If your colour scheme is pure white, this is your chance to add a bit of personality into your space, be it with patterns, mismatching colours or geometric shapes. And if you can stretch to an epic headboard, even better!
Plump pillows. We’re big fans of hypoallergenic pillows. Not only are they feather-free, but those dust mites don’t get a look-in, making them a boost to your health. For couples, monogrammed his and hers ones give off a witty, hotel-chic vibe, while adding a few colourful cushions makes a bed look super-inviting.
Bedroom blues, blue and white lends itself to sophisticated designs. ‘We were inspired by Persia and the intricate detailed floral and paisley patterns found in tiles and ancient tapestries, hence the name Kashan which means land of tiles,’ says Julie Hall, Head of Design for the Fable brand from Bedeck. ‘Printed on a luxurious 300 count cotton percale, the soft blues and linen shades create a harmonious colour palette. Layer with a throw and embroidered cushion to create a timeless look.
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.
