Home from Home, for polished, boutique-hotel chic, key elements are a statement headboard, glam wallpaper, simple white bed linen and pillows arranged in perfect symmetry. Try a tonal scheme, create a calming, restful look with an all-grey colour palette. Use varying tones, from charcoal to dove grey, and introduce textured weaves on the headboard and a rug to add depth and interest.
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.
Hot zone, got a novel to finish? Somehow, we think you won’t complete your tome here. Not with that view to enjoy each day, plus those large, embracing armchairs on the terrace look far too tempting. Still, we might stretch ourselves to send a few postcards home. Perhaps in a day or two. Screen goddess, while the kids hog the telly downstairs with their games console, we think you should move on up… Yup – a TV is cleverly hidden in the housing at the foot of the bed. If only we could get hubby to bring back the remote.
White and bright, though white is a perennial favourite for bedlinen, it’s great to shake things up a little and combine it with a bright shade. This linen duvet cover and pillowcases in a vibrant peacock colourway are a real wake-up call.‘Belgian linen is a gorgeous fabric perfect for bedding, prized for its high quality, breathability and softness,’ says Ben Hanley, Assistant Manager for Design, West Elm. ‘Ours is woven from fine Belgian flax and prewashed for a luxe, lived-in look.
