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.
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.
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.
Light it right, your bedroom needs to be perfectly functional too. Install more than one lighting circuit so that you can switch out the lights at the bedside without the need to cross the room. A dimmer will help create a serene evening ambience while dimmable downlighters work well when task lighting is needed. If space is limited, opt for a wall mounted lamp with an elegant shade like this one, freeing up space on the bedside table. Opt for a warm yellow quality of light, rather than a cool, blue light. ‘Make sure lighting helps to visually maximise the space too,’ advises Mary Barber-Fray of Mary Barber-Fray Interior Design. ‘For example, try lighting the narrower sides of the space to provide a sense of width, whether with wall lights or tiltable recessed spotlights. Choose lampshades that allow light to reflect upwards if you need to give some height to a low ceiling too.
