Bedford Gardens HouseContemporary Bedroom, London
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Get moodyWith its super-subtle grasscloth wallpaper, low modular furniture and chic lighting, this bedroom offers a darker, sophisticated take on the neutral theme. The tucked-in bedding and neat pile of cushions add to the feeling of understated luxury.
Be bold – but understatedA wall doesn’t have to be filled with frames to create an arresting display. Two or three eye-catching images, beautifully mounted and framed, can be used to stunning effect.Learn how to choose the right frame for your art
Add an ottoman or chaise longueAn obsession with all things Egyptian was a hallmark of the Art Deco age after the exciting discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb in 1922, so it’s no wonder the chaise longue (an ancient Egyptian invention) was a highly coveted piece of furniture. If your bedroom is big enough, a chaise longue, or an ottoman with the benefit of added storage, will instantly ramp up the luxury factor.
Celebrate plain and lovelyWhen people think about wallpaper, patterns are often the first thing that spring to mind. Yet wallpaper in a plain colour, such as this Strata silk from Fromental, can add real depth to a room. The dyed silk is washed with metallic paints and powders, then paper-backed. The brush strokes run horizontally to create a subtle panelled effect.
