Bedroom. Wednesday , August 09th , 2017 - 14:12:12 PM
Love the idea of country-cottage chic, but want something a bit less full-on? Then neutrals could be for you. In a scheme like this, it’s all about adding interest with textures, from embroidered cushions to waffley throws. This pretty bedroom is also lucky enough to benefit from structural focal points such as the sloped ceiling and beams, which lend it lots of character.
As well as being a place to sleep, the couple wanted their bedroom to be a peaceful sanctuary – ‘a stylish room we felt good about, not the jumbled, cluttered, untidy space it was.’ And as one half of the couple is a professional blogger, she thought the large room would be a great space to create a work area too.
Fall in love with fabric, make the most of high ceilings with draped fabric. Go for a panel rather than a rouched curtain and save pounds. Turn a large bedroom into a cosy retreat with a DIY canopy that makes a delightful focal point. Bring in a decorative side table and yellow lamp for a modern twist on traditional country features such as grainy oak beams and a traditional timber bed frame. Layer the bed with pretty yellow linen and cushions in a tasteful mix of patterns that continue the same low-key charm.
