The scheme that has in­spired us this month

When cre­at­ing a bed­room scheme, above all, it should feel calm, rest­ful and re­lax­ing, and us­ing a re­strained pal­ette of neu­trals helps to con­jure that mood. There are no po­ten­tially jar­ring pops of colour to catch the eye in this de­sign, in­stead a calm­ing choice of creams, tau­pes, ecrus and greys is bright­ened by crisp white touches high­lighted in the soft fur­nish­ings, flow­ers and wood­work.

Neu­tral cer­tainly needn’t mean bland and bor­ing. Here, a tex­tu­rally rich mix of fab­rics and fin­ishes is un­der­pinned by a note of so­lid­ity and con­trast from a beau­ti­ful wood con­sole. The ar­ray of tac­tile ma­te­ri­als in­cludes ev­ery­thing from a smooth satin cush­ion and light­weight lay­ered throws to a wo­ven head­board and silk rug, which en­sures the scheme is soft un­der­foot.

In­stead of harsh over­head light­ing, a se­lec­tion of table and wall lamps casts gen­tle pools of light around the room at night cre­at­ing a sooth­ing am­bi­ence, while metal­lic ac­cents bring a gen­tle shim­mer.

This sump­tu­ous scheme sum­mons you to take it easy, whether it’s ly­ing among the plump pil­lows, sit­ting in the easy chair com­plete with foot­stool invit­ing you to put your feet up, or perch­ing on the cosy win­dow seat with a good book and great view of the gar­den be­yond. As the chill­ier days of au­tumn ap­proach, you’ll feel warm and re­laxed in a calm­ing co­coon like this.
