ZEN CALM

Living Etc - - DESIGN / PROJECT -

A peace­ful bed­room doesn’t have to be plain. Even an all-white space can be warm and invit­ing if you in­clude dif­fer­ent tones – look at white paint pal­ettes for in­spi­ra­tion. ‘I like bed­rooms to be light and airy all year round – they should feel cool in sum­mer and light in win­ter,’ says Lucy Hel­more of

And So To Bed. ‘It’s easy to add lay­ers and change it up, es­pe­cially if you get bored eas­ily.’ Earth tones, wood and or­ganic fi­bres bring life to a pared-down room; a hint of water­colour-style pat­tern draws the eye with­out be­ing over­pow­er­ing. Think about lay­er­ing dif­fer­ent shades of one colour rather than mul­ti­ple hues – the more lim­ited the pal­ette, the more rest­ful the space will be.

‘I love the Scan­di­na­vian take on a win­ter bed­room, in­tro­duc­ing tex­ture and sub­tle grey tones to a neu­tral scheme. It’s an op­por­tu­nity to cu­rate care­fully cho­sen accessories to make the story come to life’ Adam Black, founder, But­ton & Sprung

The winged wooden head­board and na­turein­spired colours in this room give a sense of com­fort. Coun­try

Shaker can make a sim­i­lar be­spoke head­board. For nat­u­ral-fi­bre rugs, try Ar­madillo & Co. Ur­ba­nara has sim­i­lar earth-toned throws and blan­kets. Ikea’s Skoghall oak ve­neer nest­ing ta­bles, £95 for three, are a good match.

Project de­tails

In­spired by Chi­nese land­scape paint­ing, this space feels serene, de­spite its ex­pan­sive pat­terns. A screen be­hind the bed is cov­ered in Zof­fany’s San­sui Snow Peaks wall­pa­per, £58 per m. On the walls is Turner’s Tex­tures No1 Eggshell wall­pa­per in Sea Spray, £50.40 per m, at Lewis & Wood. For sim­i­lar bed­ding, try Calvin Klein Home at Amara.
