For some it may be all about large windows, for others a vaulted ceiling or even a teeny tiny nook – whichever architectural character makes you feel most zen, employ it in the master suite.Make your bed a den of dreams with lots of pillows, cushions and throws of varying materials and textures. In the summer months you’ll want to minimise the fuss and opt for clean sheets without the frills, but in the winter we can’t get enough of faux fur, chunky textures and fluffy covers.
A functional bedside table, your nightstand should be a hard-working multitasker with space for everything you need to make the night go smoothly – think a good book, notepad and glass of water. And as many clocks as it takes to get you out of bed in the morning! Who wants to be jumping out of bed every five minutes because there isn’t space for everything you need?
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.
Light it up. Swap table lamps for hanging pendants to free up valuable bedside space. Opt for fabric shades to minimize glare and choose a lively accent colour that ties in with your bedding. Make pattern a feature, break away from safe neutrals and upholster the bed in a bright, playful fabric that will make it the star attraction. For added impact, paint the wall behind in a bold co-ordinating shade.
