Just because it’s not the most visible room in the house, doesn’t mean your bedroom should be the forgotten space. In fact, it should be the exact opposite. We spend around one third of our lives in bed and it’s the one room you really get to relax and recharge in. The best bit? As it’s the most private and personal room in your home, it means you really can go to town with your décor, and be as out-there as you desire. So, whether you dream of a calm and restful retreat or a bright and beautiful boudoir, take inspiration from some of Today’s Coolest Habitats.
We weren’t surprised to discover Fashion Designer, Henry Holland’s bedroom to be as colourful and quirky as his signature fashion sense. If you, like Henry, lean towards the loud and proud side of the colour spectrum, then the perfect way to express your colourful personality is through pops of vibrant hues and patterns. Look to bright cushions, wall art and fresh flowers to really bring the space to life.
London foodie, Rosie Birkett, proves her skills are not just restricted to the kitchen. Tapping into not one but two key interiors trend – blush pink and marble – she shows off her serious interior style credentials. Allow the trend pieces to do all the talking by pairing alongside natural materials, such as the Max oak bed and matching bedside table.
Another hot interiors trend we’ve seen a lot of recently is walls swathed in dark, inky tones. Though it might seem counterintuitive, dark walls, when done right, can actually make a small room appear larger. Interiors Blogger, Bianca Hall, adds further warmth and depth to her boudoir with soft textures and lots of layers.
One half of Interior Design duo, Topology, Athina gives a masterclass in maximising on a small space. In her bedroom she makes the most of wall space with a shelf above the bed and adds interest to her pared back style with pops of pattern and pastel colours.
If you prefer the more clean and minimal Scandi aesthetic, look to Tilly Hemingway’s example. Organic materials sit alongside neutral hues, creating a pared-back bedroom look. The easiest way to brighten up a space? Bring the outside in with bright bursts of greenery.
Fashion and lifestyle influencer, Erica Davies, also likes to keep things fresh and light with muted bedding and flashes of white marble. She then adds a hit of colour through a brightly patterned rug and statement Swiss cheese plant. The best way to add texture and cosiness? Pile cushions high and lay a tactile throw across the bed.
We hope that’s left you feeling inspired and ready to transform your sleeping space into your dream haven.
