I love using deep colours on the wall in a bedroom as it makes the room immediately feel cosy and relaxing, which makes it peaceful for sleeping. A trick is to balance the deep colours with lots of white – bedding is a perfect example of how to do this, as it makes up a large area in a bedroom (you can also add a touch of colour with throws and/or cushions). White window treatments work great as well (shutters in particular). In terms of furniture, you could blend the deep colour of the wall and match with the furniture or go pale so it is more noticeable – both work really well.
We were lucky to be asked to design this guest bedroom, flooded with natural light due to its large windows, and it was the perfect blank canvas. Being a modern build, we worked to build up the textures to avoid the room looking too flat. One of the tricks we like to use in these contemporary developments is running the curtains wall-to-wall; being the full ceiling height, not only does this make the room cosier, but completely opens the room up.
When designing a bedroom, it is especially important for me that we add some natural elements. Whether that’s in the form of the more standard greenery, planting and wooden floorboards or something a little different like the clever use of plywood for a headboard and refurbishing some old crates for storage. By adding these elements, the room takes on a tranquil and relaxing vibe. Studies have shown this can actually reduce the heart rate and pulse making for a more pleasant environment to rest – perfect for retreating from a busy day.
