How did you choose textures in this design?
Textures were really important to achieve the travelled look. The white washed wooden floor boards, woven rug and distressed bench all achieve this.
The wardrobe doors are available in a finish showing wood grain so these were perfect. I also styled in lots of textured collected items from far flung places - drift wood, string, framed fabric - to achieve the look.
Do you have any style tips for this space?
The dark bed linen adds an edge and allows the cushions and throws to really stand out. Soak & Sleep have very similar ranges. Avoid always using small cushions to dress the bed. These two huge monochrome cushions from Curious Egg, the same size as a pillow, look really powerful. When it comes to throws, blankets and bedspreads, mix textures and layer them up.
A bench at the end of the bed is practical and stylish, and a good place to stack books or blankets.
