Bedroom Design Focus - The Bed

Create your own sanctuary that soothes, relaxes and restores.

As the bed takes up the largest space in the room and is the main focal point getting the bedding right is key. 

The space needs to feel calm and peaceful but also tantalising.

  • Abigail Ahern linen bed sheets in a dark brown colour
  • Select interesting colour combos (non neutral ideally),  go for more saturated tones like olives, pinky browns, deep greens and toffees as these hues always feel inviting.

Mix it Up

Mix up solids with pattern. Too much pattern can visually feel a little OTT.

If your  bedding is patterned break up with solid throws and cushions. Mixing solids with patterns elevates both.


Overdose on texture, it’s like a herb or spice and adds pizazz.

Abi takes it to another level by accessorising her bed with sheepskins and woolly slubby bedspreads and throws. 

Natural linens last for years and are soft, pliable and actually look better with age.

They have a natural texture that is super subtle and the fact that you don’t need to iron them makes them the perfect choice.

No matter what décor style you end up transitioning too, always plump for bedding that stands the test of time.
