Bedroom / January 11, 2018 / Ailani Hawley.
Feature walls are not something we tend to specify, but in this case, the origami effect wallpaper worked so well to avoid the room appearing too boxy. The final piece to finish things off is a large feature ceiling light, it is so important to upscale such items to make the most of the space.
This townhouse was designed for a collector and we wanted to ensure that every room particularly the bedroom remained elegant and classic while providing a backdrop for the magnificent collection of works of art and antiques. The antique carpet provided us with the initial inspiration for the colour scheme of the bedroom; we chose to echo its green tones throughout the room from the walls to details and furnishings like the cushions. During the initial design stages, we find it interesting to focus on one key piece and use its colours, look and feel as a starting point for inspiration – this could be anything from a statement painting to an antique rug.
This is a gorgeous example of a modern bohemian loft bedroom, achieving a relaxed and simple yet cosy atmosphere. I love the calming green walls and watercolour artwork which create a sense of calm, contrasted against the textured printed tapestry hanging over the headboard. Colour in the bedroom is such a brilliant way to create a positive, uplifting feeling every morning to wake up to. Natural fabrics such as linen add to the bohemian vibe, and the Scandi minimal table lamps perfectly finish off the crisp, clean, totally inviting environment.
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!
