The over­ar­ch­ing look for bed­rooms this sea­son is clean and serene – clas­sic lay­ered linens styled with plump pil­lows and vel­vet cush­ions. The main de­ci­sion you need to make is whether to spice things up with pa­prikas and plums or keep it cool with greens and blues.


En­hance the seren­ity. In the name of good sleeps, take a min­i­mal­ist ap­proach with your bed­room fur­ni­ture to re­duce the vis­ual noise. Do­ing away with any un­nec­es­sary clut­ter and sim­pli­fy­ing the styling will also help to cre­ate a space that’s ded­i­cated to rest.

Get a head start. An up­hol­stered head­board in­creases the com­fort fac­tor, par­tic­u­larly if you en­joy prop­ping your­self up in bed with a book, the pa­per or your morn­ing emails. It can also func­tion as a beau­ti­ful state­ment piece that elim­i­nates the need for art­work above the bed.

Just add ac­cents. Neutral-coloured bed li­nen will work from sea­son to sea­son as a base for your bed­room look. Dial up the heat by adding cush­ions and, when the weather turns, a throw in rich au­tum­nal tones – the per­fect match for dried flo­ral ar­range­ments.
