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.
As an interior design teacher, I spend a lot of my time telling students to relax and allow themselves to play more as they design rooms. This is especially important when it comes to decorating bedrooms. An average adult bedroom is by far the most private room in a family home and offers a safe haven for grown-ups who might have kids, pets, friends and neighbours nipping in and out of the rest of the house.
