* Colour helps to con­vey mood and tone within a space. A pop of a vi­brant hue can be a quick fix to re­fresh and up­lift a space. For a bed­room, think lay­ers of dec­o­ra­tive pil­lows or a chro­matic throw. or take a bolder leap and paint the walls a new colour.

* Dark colours work beau­ti­fully in small rooms, mak­ing them feel al­lur­ing and ex­clu­sive.

* Mix­ing tex­tures is a great way to give di­men­sion and add sen­su­al­ity to a bed­room. rich woods, mar­ble and mixed-metal ac­ces­sories are my favourite el­e­ments to add move­ment and soul to a space.

* i al­ways en­cour­age my clients to in­vest in lux­u­ri­ous linen. It’s one of the eas­i­est bed­room up­dates and an in­dul­gence to en­joy ev­ery day.

* Bed­rooms are in­ti­mate and per­sonal and there’s noth­ing sex­ier than the right light­ing. it truly changes the en­ergy and feel of a space. I like us­ing a mix of sil­hou­ettes that em­body or­ganic and ar­chi­tec­tural forms and work to­gether co­he­sively.

* Cre­ate a col­lec­tion of small trea­sures and show­case them in catchalls and trays on your bed­side ta­ble or atop a van­ity. Per­sonal be­long­ings – jew­ellery, pho­tos, post­cards, vin­tage finds – add life to the room and are a con­stant source of joy.
