Laurent. Bedroom. October 12th , 2017.
Zero technology, if at all possible, make your bedroom a tech-free zone after lights out. Nobody wants to hear distracting electronic humming or to be woken up by a really unnecessary 2am text from a demanding best friend… Try it, you really will notice the difference.
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.
Brilliant blooms, hydrangeas are such beautiful flowers and have long been favourites of the print team at Cath Kidston,’ says Christine Hafsten, Design Director,Cath Kidston. ‘It’s exciting to launch this brand new print for the Spring/Summer season. The hydrangea print includes delicate, spring-like blossoms in pretty pastels and the larger bunches featured have been designed with plenty of space to breathe, so that they’ll contribute to a relaxed layout, perfect for a light, Spring look in the bedroom.
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.
