Soft touch, our En Fleur collection is printed on cotton sateen with 300 threads perinch,’ says Prune Allain des Beauvais, Head of Marketing, Yves Delorme UK. ‘The way in which the fabric is woven has an effect on its feel. A satin weave has more warp threads on the top surface, resulting in a silk-like touch and appealing lustre. The quality of the cotton and the way a sheet feels against the skin is what matters most for a good night’s sleep.
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.
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.
