With spring now in full swing refreshing your décor may be back on the to-do list and with lighter and brighter days ahead, what better room to start with than a bland bedroom.
This season the trends dictate that the thinking is definitely with pink, as we all start to fall back in love with this delicate hue. The perfect colour partner for all sorts of looks and styles, we show you how to embrace this most romantic of shades and make your sleep space a real dream room.
For a pretty wake-up idea, match hint-of-pink wall hues (try Farrow & Ball’s Cinder Rose) with painted furniture finishes such as the Portland Grey bed and side table combination.
An easy on the eye choice for lulling softly to sleep, the pale colours complement the wall tones whilst the styling of the furniture makes it a smart choice with the oak tops adding a warm touch to the scheme. Team with sophisticated subtle grey bedding accessories and a throw to ground this lovely look.
With most bedrooms, storage for something is a certain. Why not dip into the old-meets-new furniture fashion and settle for a large modern-vintage wardrobe to meet all your clothes store requirements. Not one to shy from size, the Chantilly triple door wardrobe has space a-plenty with roomy hanging and shelving options. Styled with a pale painted finish it makes it an easy model to match with the now much mooted mulled pink shade of the season.
Finally, no dream bedroom scene is sorted without a set of store-all drawers. Chic, closed and contained, the outer appeal is the mainstay of this furniture favourite. Pale painted colours and designer dark handled details of the Chantilly chest pick up on the monochrome meets muted pink trend.
The signature silhouette style of this furniture piece makes it a masterstroke must-buy with its sophisticated finish and fluid designer touch. A powdery pink backdrop refreshes the pale painted drawer front details. Even when closed the chest of drawers makes for a signature shelfie store and more space in which to arrange seasonal must-sees and foraged finds.
