I was asked recently if I could do a post on bedrooms. Because as you may have noticed I tend not to post about them much. Sorry, but I can’t post my pad at the moment as the bedroom is the most neglected room in the house (criminal I know) and it’s in desperate need of a revamp! Will do that and share with you soon…
I can’t wax lyrical about a space if I don’t like it. There are however a few (no more just a few) bedrooms out there in the meantime that I just adore. So I’ve given you a slideshow of those instead, at least until my bedroom is up to scratch! They all share a common theme which is an intoxicating use of colour – the spaces themselves are simply yet beautifully decorated and utterly inspirational.
First up Ms Jenna Lyons. Her bedroom is simple, beautiful, sophisticated. It just oozes modern elegance mixed with a touch of faded grandeur I adore it. And it’s all about that deep dark colour of course. The textiles are a wonderful mix of an old Oriental threadbare rug juxtaposed with the finest crisp white bedlinen. The humble and haute should hang out together more often I reckon.
Next up my buds’ Jo and Graham Atkins’ bedroom. Again it’s the colour that makes the statement and does all the talking. The beautiful palette of teal and chocolate brown is a marriage made in heaven. Unexpected, I would never ever have thought of it, but just wonderful. They are fabulous tastemakers. Just some trailblazing colours can take a very simply decorated space from ordinary into extraordinary.
And finally a low-hanging pendant light, an injection of industrial style cool, some slubby linens and the deepest darkest colour is all you need. Adore.
