What Houzz contributors are saying:
Stay sharpThis room turns the floral headboard and geometric cushions pairing on its head with painterly blooms on the cushions and a tailored design on the headboard. In a warm colour, the latter ensures the room’s a cosy haven without compromising the smartness of the scheme. Want to make a high-ceilinged room feel warmer? Follow this room’s lead with a cocooning dark neutral for walls. With crisp white for coving and ceiling, the period features are still noticeable.
Turn down the heatKeep a bedroom too warm and sleep can be restless as the temperature of the space interferes with the natural dip in body temperature that occurs at night. To adjust the heat in an individual room easily, all that’s required is a thermostatic valve fitted to the radiator. It won’t affect the boiler, but will regulate the heat in the space. Make sure it’s not blocked by curtains so it works properly.
Soothing grey gets our voteFarrow & Ball’s Downpipe paint gets a lot of love and for good reason. This bedroom, saved by tens of thousands of you, shows how to use the shade in a way that allows for an airy and bright set-up. Colourful, patterned cushions lift the look, while painting the ceiling and mouldings white stops the space feeling dark and dingy. A similarly crisp set of plantation shutters lets the light in – and what a way to catch every ray with that beautiful Caboche light fitting. The luxurious wingback velvet headboard was very popular, too – a wonderful way to sit back on a Sunday with the papers in bed.Want to make your headboard work harder? Here’s how
