To warm up and soften the guest bedroom our client wanted to create a cosy and serene bedroom in a grey and white colour scheme.
Our constraints included the headboard and the bedside tables, which the client already owned, and the high ceilings with recessed downlighting.
The headboard is a defining piece in the room and is quite classical in style. The goal was to bring in other elements to balance the style, so that the overall feeling was neither too modern nor too classical. The very simple, but more solid style of the bedside table worked in contrast, and we added a modern edge with the bedside light and artwork.
Installing the show stealing wallpaper on the main wall in the room highlighted the high ceilings, and the soft pattern and texture added much needed dimension in the room.
