RELAXIN’ ALL COOL

Homestyle New Zealand - - STYLE -

1 When

restyling your bed­room for au­tumn, be­gin by com­ing up with a tight edit of just a few hues. Hav­ing a de­fined colour pal­ette in mind means you can rest as­sured that any new ad­di­tions will work in har­mony with the pieces you al­ready have.

we kept things cool and calm by team­ing an ash-coloured cham­bray linen du­vet set with an oat­meal linen pil­low and match­ing euro for tone-on­tone sim­plic­ity. Ad­di­tional cush­ions in com­ple­men­tary shades but dif­fer­ent tex­tures dial up the lux­ury.

pri­vate space such as this is the ideal place in which to ded­i­cate a wall for use as a gallery for art­work, fam­ily pho­tos and me­men­tos that you want to ad­mire ev­ery day but don’t want to have on dis­play for guests. Choose a com­mon shade for your frames to tie the items to­gether, and add other cu­rios to the wall to vary the com­po­si­tion.

bench at the end of the bed is the would-be bed­room stylist’s best friend. A prac­ti­cal spot for books and to­mor­row’s out­fit, it also serves as a full stop for the story you’ve cre­ated with your bed­ding. The key here is size: too small and your bench will look out of bal­ance with the bed; too big and it’ll dom­i­nate the room. Aim for some­thing that’s close to but no larger than the width of your bed. You could also try a pair of chests or stools, or a row of bas­kets. •
