Design Updates In My Bedroom: Soothing Blues
I’ve long been a fan of the classic blue and white colour combination so it’s been the staple palette of my bedroom for some time.The whites make it feel effortlessly fresh, while the the array of shades offered by the blue colour family make it rich and inviting. The headboard of my Luna bed is upholstered in a vintage indigo linen that invites an air of drama and intimacy into the scheme. Meanwhile, the linen striped azure blue curtains from Bemz keep things feeling light, airy and gently graphic.Isn’t the Campaign bedside table such a treat?! The design was inspired by a vintage 1940s sideboard found at a Parisian flea market and it’s become one of my favourite pieces at home now! I love the mix materials used and how the legs splay out and the wooden top is wonderfully tactile – ideal for a bedroom space.In fact, in an all-white space such as this it’s important to introduce plenty of texture to prevent the scheme from feeling too clinical or cold. The bed is dressed in layers of soft, cosy linen bedding, while rag rugs lie underfoot for a tactile touch. I also added texture through bare wooden furniture, such as my Nutkin chest of drawers. I think it pairs perfectly with the nautical vibe of my Brilliantly Bright Buoys photographic print, too. Every morning I see this print and it reminds me of a wonderful few days spent exploring the Hampton’s – a total #makeyousmilestyle element of my bedroom.I’m thrilled with how serene and stylish this space turned out. The Quick Step flooring was the perfect foil to all the other elements thanks to the Bleached White Teak look. It allowed me to pair the vintage linen upholstery on the bed with the vintage feel of the nightstand. Then, with the gently graphic touches in the striped curtains, lamp and bedding, it resulted in a scheme that I simply love! What do you like about my bedroom design updates?
