The inspiration for this bedroom was a tropical Caribbean beach, which to me represents peace and relaxation. I designed this bedroom using clean lines and soothing colours, such as taupe and a soft turquoise. I always recommend cool colours in bedrooms because they create a sense of calm. At the same time, I used warm materials such as wood and fabric, as well as rich textures to create some contrast. Add a few pools of light and you got yourself the perfect recipe for a cosy haven of relaxation.
We love this look because of the fresh take on what could potentially be a period interior. The yellow wall brings it bang up-to-date, freshening the space and bringing the whole room to life. The antique touches of mismatched frames, the oversized wooden bed, stripped back floorboards and the old chandelier contrast perfectly with the statement wall giving it oodles of character. The picture rail breaks up the room giving it plenty of height but the patchwork quilt, rug and cushions keep the room cosy.
