When it comes to designing bedrooms, I have 3 rules:
1. The room must be a place that invites relaxation, tranquility and restfulness. This means a muted, simple and cool color palette is a must: think grey, pale blue, lavender or pale green.
2. A bedroom should feel romantic. Things that evoke romance in a room? Curved lines, soft simple bedding and ethereal details like lace and glass.
3. Lastly, I always like to infuse a little bit of glamour. In a bedroom this means reflective surfaces, wallpaper and ALWAYS, ALWAYS a fabulous chandelier.
Keeping my 3 key principles in mind, here’s my latest design for a relaxing, romantic and glamorous bedroom
1. Lace-inspired wallpaper: Graham & Brown Jewel Wallpaper – 2modern | 2. Chandelier: Bellina Chandelier in Platinum – Z Gallerie | 3. Mouthblown glass lamp: Lafayette 27″ Table Lamp – Home Decorators Collection| 4. Drapery panels: Ciudad Window Panel in sand – Pier 1 Imports | 5. Rug: Jaipur Rugs Capri Flat Weave – Gilt Home | 6. Mirrored nightstand: Amelie Mirrored Nightstand – Horchow | 7. Bench: Denison Mirrored Bench – Horchow | 8. Bedding: Donna Karan City Strip Duvet – Gilt Home | 9. Upholstered headboard: Pondicherry Headboard with Nailheads in Mist Linen – Serena & Lily
