Regardless of the size of your room, the space next to your bed needs a surface, a drawer and a shelf to house what you are reading. A chair to put your clothes on of any size, two if you are sharing! A full-length mirror either on the wall or behind a wardrobe door if space is at premium. Light for reading and more to see properly in the dark of winter. A mixture of old and new always adds softness to this room, your sanctuary. And importantly a blanket for the all-important siesta without disturbing the bed.
You might associate a boutique bedroom design with a trendy hotel, but you can enjoy sumptuous luxury even in a dated apartment. Here, we upholstered the chaise in a vibrant blue velvet crocodile fabric, toning with teal coloured velvets on the deep-buttoned headboard and runner. Sunset yellow bombé bedside units pick out the gold in the cushions and unify the scheme across the bedroom. A mid-pile Cormar carpet gives a luscious feel underfoot, while fuchsia pink cushions offer a vivid accent. The round concave mirrors were an internet find which we painted marine blue to match the fabrics, adding unique interest to the overall scheme.
