Spending time with friends can be an exhausting experience for visitors and hosts alike so create a bedroom that provides your guests with somewhere calm and serene to recharge their batteries. The shades of grey and white seen here are gentle on the senses, the bed is wide enough to collapse on and relax, and the bedside radio is a personal touch your guests will appreciate.
As purple is also often associated with Romani traditions it naturally looks the part in eclectic schemes. Classic country pieces are brought up-to-date with the rich chocolate box combination and sumptuous fabrics. Brown, blue, yellow and green are elegantly pulled together and balanced by the blackcurrant silk curtains and super-sized paisley print bed linen.
Purple is a daring shade choice for any room, but with the right mix of complementary colours, graphic effects and intelligently designed lighting, the colour can take on a serious sophistication. The large print graphic repeat of the wallpaper behind the smaller graphic of the headboard fabric works to create a layered look that is unified by the strong wall colour to the right. Dark cushions and a bright acrylic bedside light interplay for balance.
Add instant luxury with an oversized headboard. A timeless padded design will bring a little hotel-style chic to your scheme. An original gloomy space has been transformed into a restful, minimally furnished haven. Dark wood flooring and an ornate chandelier further enhance the sophisticated feel in this traditional space. Introduce animal prints in small measures. Be brave, as there are several ways even the boldest of prints can be incorporated into any home.
