BED STYLING FOR AUTUMN

BED STYLING FOR AUTUMN

It’s Monday, and like me, you can probably do with a quick power nap. The rain would suggest summer is well and truly over and this got me thinking of bedding, duvet days and the importance of how your bedroom makes you feel. So, I thought I would put together my perfect bed styling ideas for autumn. Enjoy…

COLOUR

I think beautiful, calming hues are best in the bedroom. Grey is definitely the new neutral. Personally, I will always go darker, but it’s great to see a move away from beige! I love the richness of this bottom of the lake grey – just beautiful – it’s very much like my Madison Grey paint.

LAYERS

Linen sheets are an absolute must, in my humble opinion. Cool in the summer and so soft and warm in the winter – the perfect bed partner.

TEXTURE

I love playing with textures and layers in my pad, it makes a space feel instantly luxurious and rich with character. This Elle Decor room has oodles of things going on adding drama and intrigue to this bedroom, making you want to jump and snuggle in.

PAINT

Last but by no means least, yes, I have shamefully included my own bedroom. I have to, I have to tell you about my secret paint tips. I absolutely always go for the one colour look, because it really opens up the room. If you paint everything out in the same colour – walls, floor, ceilings, woodwork, windows, radiators, literally everything! – it removes boundaries and instantly creates the illusion of more space.

NOW, GET STYLING

    Hi Abighail

    I live in Bali and have an older style open living house with grey tone stone flooring and timber doors and windows.
    All of the rooms opens onto established tropical garden.

    if I paint a darker living room and master bedroom should i be carrying the dark paint throughout the house or is it ok to do only do a couple rooms?
    I also have a 6 year old daughter who prob doesn’t want an olive green bedroom! The interconnecting walkway and bathroom is pretty dark so a dark shade on the walls will only make the spaces more interesting.

    Can you advise please.

    Thank you.

    Hi Abigail,
    Ima designer just starting out. My client has painted her bedroom in Juniper Ash by little Greene. It looks amazing but the ugly modern – very white radiator stands out so much. Can we paint over it with the same MATT paint used on the walls or do you do something special to treat the metal first like an undercoat or something?
    Many thanks, Mel
