What’s your ideal bedroom interior style?
For a timeless contemporary bedroom scheme, monochrome shades of grey, black and white work wonderfully well together. Think white wooden floorboards teamed with black furniture, a cosy grey rug to step out of bed onto, and black or white blinds.
The folks at Julian Charles, a retailer of luxury bedding and accessories, recently asked how we’d best dress an interior with their products. So with a contemporary bedroom in shades of grey in mind, here’s what we’d choose.
The choice of bedding can make or break the look of a bedroom. For a contemporary room and classic colours that won’t date, I’d opt for the Ashford silver luxury duvet set. I love the geometric and multi-stripe patterns, which are primarily in silver and grey. But rather than just the one design, you get a choice of two with this one, as the duvet is reversible. Two-in-one definitely offers better value for money and gives an added element of choice – bonus!
I love having a throw on the bed. It’s a great extra layer to be able to throw on during the colder months. Plus, of course, it does help ‘dress’ the bed during the day and give it that hotel chic look. In this case, the luxury grey Darla quilted throw is the perfect companion to the bedding. It’s soft and cosy and has just the right amount of detailing on it to help it stand out.
Cushions are a must to add to the bed, both in terms of dressing it and providing extra comfort. I’d have to include the Ashford silver boudoir cushion – I love the design featured on it and this matches the bedding. Plus the Darla grey filled square cushion works fantastically with the throw.
Finally, to help retain the fresh scent of clean bedding in the room, and generally add some soft fragrance, I’d add in a Fresh Linen candle.
The end result looks great – stylish, contemporary and, hopefully, long-lasting.
