It is hard to say how many times in my life I have heard the ‘no bed next to a window’ rule. It’s definitely more than a few. Fortunately, rules are made to be broken. If your bedroom is extraordinarily small, you might have limited options on where you place your bed. You can always find a way to put a bed in front of a window and make it look more awesome than awkward, and here we have one example. Thanks to the curtains which frame the window perfectly and the fact they go from wall to wall, the design achieves a luxurious and purposeful look. Symmetry is key here, as the bed lines up with the window in a pleasing, balanced way. The top of the headboard is perfectly in line with the window sill and is not obscuring the window. A calming palette of colours creates a cosy space with a seductive feel.
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.
