COOL & CALM

Homestyle New Zealand - - CITTÀ -

Get fresh. Sub­tle stripes meet hero shades in this ul­tra-calm­ing space, where pale bed li­nen is lay­ered with pil­lows and cush­ions in wa­tery and herba­ceous hues. Nat­u­ral wood and sheer cur­tains are a beau­ti­ful back­drop to this look.

Love it and leaf it. Pre­pare for early morn­ings and evenings to be­come your favourite times of the day, thanks to the shad­ows of pot­ted and cut fo­liage on your walls. Cre­ate this dreamy scene with a mix of plants of var­i­ous shapes and sizes; var­ie­gated leaves will add in­ter­est dur­ing day­light hours. With your pots and vases, aim to com­ple­ment your bed­room’s colour and ma­te­rial pal­ette, but keep it sim­ple so the spot­light stays on the fo­liage. Raw, nat­u­ral fin­ishes such as ter­ra­cotta and stone are great for tex­ture.

Se­lect the right side ef­fect. With your bed­side ta­bles, take a re­al­is­tic view; they need to func­tion ef­fec­tively, so be clear about your needs. Where you like to have a place in which to stash books, night cream and bed socks, draw­ers will be help­ful; where you only re­quire a sur­face for an alarm clock and a lamp, opt for a sim­ple side ta­ble or stool.
