Laurent. Bedroom. October 13th , 2017.
Alpine lodge, après-ski anyone? Well, who wouldn’t if you had a place like this to come back to after a day on the slopes. Materials matter most here, with reclaimed wood, a concrete console and that fab faux-fur throw. When it gets too hot, just slide open those doors and chill. Princess in the tower, remodelling a loft space is commonplace, but this attic conversion takes the design to new heights. No plaster ceiling boards here – the living space stretches up to the eaves. And, to add an offbeat element to the contemporary interior, the Gothic-style screen is perfect for hiding behind before your prince turns up for his kiss. Mwahh!
Between hunkering down in a nook in winter and swaying in a hammock during the summer, we can find a way to justify sleep wherever, whenever. But this week we have a real reason to celebrate slumber – Sleep Awareness Week. The National Sleep Foundation is celebrating its annual sleep appreciation week. Everything from breathing exercises to your diet and the time you eat your meals can have an impact on your resting state. Being sleep experts, we can confirm a wind-down before bed is helpful, and being interior design experts, we can confirm it’s all about bedroom feng shui.
Zero technology, if at all possible, make your bedroom a tech-free zone after lights out. Nobody wants to hear distracting electronic humming or to be woken up by a really unnecessary 2am text from a demanding best friend… Try it, you really will notice the difference.
Add opulence, play up your bedroom’s assets, whether it’s a beautiful period mantlepiece or wide windows, and emphasise a room’s proportions with a few striking pieces. In this case an elegant chandelier anchors the space while a Venetian-style mirror adds a note of glamour. In a compact space, don’t be afraid to opt for fewer, larger pieces of furniture which will make a greater impact than smaller pieces. Provide one or two key focal points to draw the eye to the outer spaces of the room, whether a striking piece of artwork, or headboard covered in luxe fabric.
