What was your initial concept for designing the room?

I was keen to create an aspirational, edgy interior that would best show off the white gloss Pure fitted wardrobes. When creating really stylish contemporary spaces I think its important that they are not overly themed. Successfully mixing styles, periods, pattern, colour and texture is always the key to a great interior! And it's a great interior that will really make these wardrobes shine.

Where did you take inspiration for the style?

For this look I took inspiration from the classic mid century Scandinavian vibe with clean lines and design-led shapes. I then mixed in some more unexpected industrial touches to give it an edge. I wanted to include the recent trend for gold metallics which added another strong unexpected element and helped stop the room feeling themed.

How did you choose paint for the room?

I wanted to use colour on the walls to allow the white gloss wardrobes to really stand out. Blush pink is so on trend right now, as are the aqua touches. The palette is very tonal which means they work well together. I used Calamine by Farrow & Ball on the walls which is very much a millennial pink - super cool and not at all sickly.

Which other elements were key in the design?

The terrazzo flooring is very aspirational and gave the room an edge. I layered it with a deep luxurious rug to frame the bed and give comfort underfoot.The wall mounted angular bedside lights by Graham and Green act as art and give a hotel feel to the space. The low simple Scandi curved bed in pale wood was also crucial to the look. Heals are great for this kind of furniture. It was important to work consistently with a colour palette. For example, you can see the aqua accent appears on the walls of the ensuite, the bedspread, bedroom chair and rug. This really unites the space.

What styling tips can you give for creating this look?

Keep the bedding simple. Crisp white cotton, dressed minimally with an aqua coloured bedspread. Cushions are the ideal opportunity to bring in colour, pattern and texture sobmake sure you mix them up. The texture of cork, from Mind The Cork and patterns byTamasyn Gambell and Florrie & Bill in the right colour palette were a perfect mix. Pick a metal and use it throughout. Here I used gold door handles to add a touch of luxury in a sleek contemporary shape. I dressed the metal crittal balcony doors with sheer linens to soften them and add another texture to the room.
