Bedroom / January 22, 2018 / Clara Mcclelland.
This beautiful soft industrial bedroom featured on the cover of the launch issue of Warehouse Home magazine – and it’s proved very popular ever since! The original features of a warehouse conversion, such as exposed brickwork, can often feel ‘hard’ and ‘masculine’. Old and new steel furniture is especially striking in such spaces but can also feel cold. When styling the Warehouse Home bedroom (above), we wanted to prove that industrial chic can have a softer side. A bespoke galvanised steel pipe bed, designed exclusively for Warehouse Home by Urban Grain, was the focal point of our warehouse bedroom. And beside it, a vintage industrial bedside cabinet. We then used a ‘masculine and feminine’ palette of greys and blush pinks and a variety of textured fabrics (linen, tweed, velvet), to bring warmth to our bedroom and soften the industrial look. Select vintage accessories complemented the warehouse conversion’s heritage features, while flowers and decorative vintage glassware further enhanced the ‘femininity’ of the space.
I love this bedroom we completed for a client late last year, the inspiration was a Soho Georgian townhouse so we naturally looked for using period Little Greene French Grey teamed with marble, brass and blue accents. We created the panelling by designing sizes to fit the room and create height. The headboard was our real feature which you can get made to any design from a good upholsterer, we complemented this with White Company linen with Royal blue detailing. It’s such a calm and welcoming room with warm accents and the brass touches make it feel that little bit special.
We designed this master bedroom to be a calming yet elegant bedroom to escape the hustle and bustle of life in central London. The gentle blend of soft grey, pastel yellow and deep blue as well as the nautical yet simple artwork reference the maritime history of Greenwich in South-East London. We used soothing dark blue and subtly textured fabrics to make an atmospheric bedroom but also ensure a great night’s sleep!
I have a thing for fairytales and so I always seek for that ‘happily ever after’ look in my home. With its tactile textures, warming beige tones and flowing covers, this bedroom is the epitome of a bed that’s fit for a princess and her prince – or me and my fiancé. It’s clear that the main focus of the room is the bed itself and so, as I believe that you can never have enough scatter cushions either, this scene truly is my ideal bedroom.
