White and bright, though white is a perennial favourite for bedlinen, it’s great to shake things up a little and combine it with a bright shade. This linen duvet cover and pillowcases in a vibrant peacock colourway are a real wake-up call.‘Belgian linen is a gorgeous fabric perfect for bedding, prized for its high quality, breathability and softness,’ says Ben Hanley, Assistant Manager for Design, West Elm. ‘Ours is woven from fine Belgian flax and prewashed for a luxe, lived-in look.
Light it right, your bedroom needs to be perfectly functional too. Install more than one lighting circuit so that you can switch out the lights at the bedside without the need to cross the room. A dimmer will help create a serene evening ambience while dimmable downlighters work well when task lighting is needed. If space is limited, opt for a wall mounted lamp with an elegant shade like this one, freeing up space on the bedside table. Opt for a warm yellow quality of light, rather than a cool, blue light. ‘Make sure lighting helps to visually maximise the space too,’ advises Mary Barber-Fray of Mary Barber-Fray Interior Design. ‘For example, try lighting the narrower sides of the space to provide a sense of width, whether with wall lights or tiltable recessed spotlights. Choose lampshades that allow light to reflect upwards if you need to give some height to a low ceiling too.
Explore the dark side, don’t shy away from using a dark wall colour in a bedroom; it can instantly make a space feel more intimate and cosy. Dark walls are also great for showing off a display of favourite objects – try a deep shade of blue as a backdrop to vintage lighting, antique prints and bric-a-brac.
Sleek storage, well-planned storage helps establish a peaceful bedroom scheme. In this room, simple built-in storage incorporating a window seat makes the most of limited space while providing a focal point. Maximise storage by using clever multi-functional furniture where suitable, using the walls and height of the room as well as the floor space. Here, form and function dovetail perfectly with the graphic tones and angular shapes of the wall-mounted light, headboard and side table providing both style and practicality.
