Is there such a thing ?
Maybe perfectly imperfect would be the best way to describe the relaxed look we are showing you today.
I personally love the asymmetric look . Try a locker on one side of the bed , maybe a chair at the other side? It takes a bit of confidence to attempt this but the result is fabulous.
Where to start though.... well with the walls of course. lets have a look....
Not all greys are created equal. How many of you have tried and failed ? Whats good for one of us may be so wrong for another. The best way to achieve a great result and choose the right grey paint is to buy testers. The light in all our rooms is different as are our tastes. Trends towards darker grey walls are ok if you love it but don't just do it because its trending. Personally I love a mid grey ... not too white ,not too dark. Designers Guild have a great range as do The little Green Paint company. My favourite from Little Green is French grey mid. It just seems to work everywhere .
Wallpaper is a great way to add some pattern and texture to a room. Again order samples or book a consultation with an interior designer if you need some help making a decision.
The bed will of course be the focal point . If the room is small make sure the end board is low or have none at all. A bed on legs like the one shown create the illusion of space . If you have plenty of space go for it ... you can even try a four poster .
White is great and is the best selling colour in bedlinen. How about introducing a bit of colour though like the range here from Designers Guild. There are four colours in this range and it is a subtle easy way to inject a bit of personality.
White is a perfect partner for grey
A bit of greenery will make a grey and white design scheme come alive. It brings the outside inside and reminds us of the calming effect nature brings. Its also perfect for those who dont want a floral scheme but want to introduce a natural theme.
Use single stems of greenery or flowers grouped for effect .This is a really economical way of creating some colour and channeling the botanical look.
It compliments a neutral grey and white scheme and can be changed easily depending on whats in season .
Try single stems of eucalyptus or berries in the winter.
Time to lighten up and get messy.
There's no need to be perfect all the time. The best interiors are ones we feel comfortable and relaxed in. Now I'm not saying through your stuff all over the place. But if there is a place for everything else , storage baskets for odds and ends, we can afford to occasionally have a messy bed.
The best solution for easy bed making is a quilted throw, its gorgeousness is easy on the eye and hides any amount of imperfections .
Just pull up and go.
This one comes in four colours with accent stitching from Designers Guild
See the fuschia accents above ? . It's my favourite highlight colour. Cassis, berry, fuschia whatever its called
I just love it .
Denims and blues of all sorts are great with grey too. when you think about it ... The colours you can wear with grey will look well in your home too .
Bedlinen with piping and trimming will also add a layer of opulence to a bedroom . The department stores have ranges to suit all budgets
Gorgeous curtains or shutters for privacy and a statement lamp complete details to achieve this perfectly , imperfect grey bedroom .
