Bedroom / January 16, 2018 / Tiffany Vann.
My personal choice of colour palette frequently ebbs towards darker, richer tones, particularly during the winter months, because these tend to evoke a sense of cocooning warmth and comfort. This dark and alluring charcoal-panelled hotel room I recently stayed in creates instant drama, whilst contrasting crisp white bedding elevates the scheme further.
The reason I love this bedroom is due to its refined elegance. The simple colour palette makes for a wonderfully calming master bedroom. The classic Ralph Lauren pinstripe walls serve as the perfect backdrop for the stunning navy upholstered bed, with its many layers of cushions and throws creating a hotel-like feel. From the beautiful symmetry presented through every aspect of this room, to the many sumptuous textures, this bedroom reflects the perfect marriage of classic style with distinctive contemporary touches.
At Thompson Clarke, we love to balance colour and pattern with classic tones and designs which is exactly what you can see here – take the pink ikat cushions on the crisp white bed linen with its pink piping, and then the multi-coloured rug which works beautifully set against the neutral wall colour. This bedroom is flooded with light so we wanted to keep it bright and fresh with pops of colour, but also make it super comfortable and inviting. A good mantra when it comes to interior design is, ‘nothing should match – beautiful things always go together’ – that’s my rule of thumb.
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.
