This style is perfect for small, inner-city apartment living as well as rentals and short lets – which is what the majority of young professionals are living in these days. The simplicity of white walls and a black floor means that you can add colour with personal items instead of spending lots of money on expensive wall finishes. It also means that matching colours to furniture is less of an issue and things just work together without too much effort. In a small apartment, the bedroom may also double as another space, so it is a really versatile look. The black floor adds warmth to the bright white walls and creates a perception of greater space.
This cottage bedroom at ‘Driftwood’ in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand was a shoot location for Laura Thomas Linens ‘Organic Bed Linen Collection’. A space where time became irrelevant and the busy technological world we live in could be placed on hold. The coastal style was uncluttered and the use of straw roller blinds and natural light created an atmosphere of wilderness and calm. The incredible view could be enjoyed from the comfort of the bed. A perfect paradise to wake up to!
