Bedroom / January 18, 2018 / Amelia Cao.
The bedroom should be one of the most comfortable and relaxing rooms in your home. That’s why I prefer a warm, soothing colour palette that helps you to unwind after a long day. I feel that luxurious textiles such as velvet and silk complement warmer tones very well and give it a high-end look without compromising the comfort. I like the rest of the decor quite minimalist though so the room doesn’t look too busy. Simple and chic is the way to go!
We were lucky to be asked to design this guest bedroom, flooded with natural light due to its large windows, and it was the perfect blank canvas. Being a modern build, we worked to build up the textures to avoid the room looking too flat. One of the tricks we like to use in these contemporary developments is running the curtains wall-to-wall; being the full ceiling height, not only does this make the room cosier, but completely opens the room up.
I’ve fallen in love with the feel and style of Hygge living; in this room, the client and I wanted to mix contemporary luxury living with a dash of Hygge. So, have kept the colour scheme very neutral, with browns, greys, blush tones and white to create a warm and homely atmosphere. This client dreamed of a very relaxed, yet somewhat tailored appearance, which we feel has been achieved, through the use of many natural textures, the use of clean lines and a minimalistic approach.
The use of darker tones on the walls creates instant depth, in particular, wall coverings rather than paint helps to create a more cosy feel, such as this gorgeous grasscloth paper. Layering textures and patterns within a scheme also helps to create that warm enveloping vibe, think gorgeous velvets teamed with satins, luxe faux furs and textured linens.
