I’ve been meaning to do a bedroom tour for a while now, and I finally got around to it! It is one of my favourite rooms in the house. We use it as our living room at the moment so we hang out here most evenings.
I worked with West Elm to put the room together in terms of furniture, but it helped to have a colour palette to start off with. I already knew that I was going to have Farrow & Ball Cornforth White on the Walls and Vardo for the wardrobe doors. The floor was always going to be painted Down Pipe as that is the colour I used throughout the first floor. I am not convinced dark floorboards are practical but they are certainly better than white!
West Elm took these colours and worked with them. I worked with a great home stylist called Sophia who helped me pull together the main pieces. The bed is my favourite piece and all the lovely textiles on it. One of the first things I do in the evenings is come into the bedroom and turn all the lamps on, light a candle and close the blinds. I like to make it all cosy for when I come up later on.
When this mirror arrived I thought it was too much – too grand. But now I love it. It is a real feature piece in the room and matches the boldness of the green wardrobe doors
We used the bedding and soft furnishings to pull texture into the room. The quilted teal pillows at the back are perfect for pulling in the colour of the wardrobes.
The dressing table is from the same collection as our bedside tables. I found this stool on Maisons Du Monde and I think it goes well and in keeping with the mid-century feel of the rest of the room.
I really think the vintage pieces work well with the new pieces. The shapes of the lamp bases accent the shapes of the bedside tables and dressing table.
Ikea wardrobes really are fab. I can fit so much in and there are so many drawer options and special little trays you can get for accessories.
These hooks on the door were from John Lewis – I love how they match the wardrobe handles and the beehive vintage handles on the door.
