What styling elements were key?
The bed is key. Lots of textured layers in gorgeous linens, velvet and wool. Soak & Sleep’s charcoal linen bedsheets are perfect for this look and such a treat to sleep in! I like the headboard to take centre stage in any bedroom so am not keen on hanging artwork directly above it. Instead, positioning artwork either side, above the bedside lamps can look very elegant. It creates a small still life with a strong composition.
The sculptural suspension ceiling light from Graham and Green is an unexpected feature from a different period, which gives the room an edge. It’s architectural feel almost doubles up as art! This really adds something special to the room.
Can you give any tips for achieving this vibe?
As I'm always telling my clients, mix your materials. A worn rug, marble bedside lights, a reclaimed parquet floor - all add to the depth and layered texture of the room.
The floor to ceiling curtains add a grown up, luxurious hotel vibe. Buy long curtains and hang them to the ceiling, even if they sit higher than the window. It gives the appearance of a higher ceiling which is really luxurious. Make sure they hit the floor though; short curtains never look nice!
