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.
This style is perfect for small, inner-city apartment living as well as rentals and short lets – which is what the majority of young professionals are living in these days. The simplicity of white walls and a black floor means that you can add colour with personal items instead of spending lots of money on expensive wall finishes. It also means that matching colours to furniture is less of an issue and things just work together without too much effort. In a small apartment, the bedroom may also double as another space, so it is a really versatile look. The black floor adds warmth to the bright white walls and creates a perception of greater space.
