My favourite bedroom has got to be my own. First of all, our ‘Breaking Bad’ style crocheted throw. Doug and I got completely addicted to this piece of TV genius and are convinced it is going to seriously influence Interior Trends for the next decade – the architecture in Albuquerque is so nice: slightly Mexican with a modern ‘edge’. The artwork above the bed is by my husband, Douglas. His work is our pension. The 1980’s style TV in the corner is a reassuring presence, as is the retro gas fire – all perfect for our unique, one-off 1970’s house. The wire shelving racks are the perfect place to put books, phones and our industrial style inspection lamps.
This master bedroom in a grand, light-filled house in Dorchester has lofty ceilings and huge sash windows. We reinstated the cornice and picture rail to balance out the scale of the room and visually lower the ceiling. The owners were initially nervous moving from magnolia to indigo blue walls, but Farrrow and Ball ‘Pitch Blue’ in this south facing room adds depth and drama. The rich blue is punctuated with the warm mustard of the tall bedside lamps and accessories, and the geometric embroidered curtains keep the large windows from over-powering the space.
