What style of room did you aim to create?

I was keen to create a simple, clean and fresh space which felt airy, design led and stylish. Uncluttered and appealing!

 

How did you choose the textures?

Natural elements were key to this look. I wanted to mix natural textures and finishes, without the space looking too rustic. I incorporated cork, wood and leather to achieve this.

The beautiful leather woven ottoman alongside the Ercol style pale wood bed and striking bentwood pendant really make this space. The layered hoop effect of the pendant light from Dunelm is simple but really unusual and makes a statement. Cork from Mind The Cork were perfect for styling.

What design elements were key?

The simple shutters were important in the room, as was the paint. I chose Gauze Mid by Little Greene for the walls. It works really well with the finish of the wardrobes. The hanging ribbed glass bedside lights by Grace and Glory added an unexpected touch.

 

How did you create the colour scheme?

I was mindful to choose an accent colour that worked with the palette of the natural materials. Olive green, one of my favourite colours to use in the home, works really well on the cushion, throw and accessories. It sits beautifully with the tan leather of both the ottoman and classic Corbusier chair in the background.

 

How did you maintain the uncluttered style?

Well of course the fitted wardrobes are the main solution to beating the bedroom clutter! But in addition I left the white washed floorboards bare and didn't add a rug under the bed. I kept the bed dressing itself very minimal, placing the pillows flat on the mattress as opposed to propped up against the headboard, for a Scandanese feel.

The hanging bedside lights look great and certainly give more space on the bedside tables themselves, so that's another tip!
