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 allows us to do whatever we like without worrying about other people’s potential negative reactions. When you think about decorating your bedroom and want to create a cosy nook that might not reflect the latest fashion – that’s great. Want to try an unusual colour? Go for it; if you have an idea that’s a bit left field and don’t know which room to try it in – your bedroom is the safest room to let rip with your wildest ideas.
