Retreat from the cold into a cosy haven of snug-as-a-bug quilted throws and flannel linens featuring elegant floral patterns. Begin with a neutral backdrop and white painted furniture then bring in purple printed fabrics, a painted focal wall or wall-to-floor curtains. Choose a purple tweed headboard for texture and cosy charm. Framed vintage bird prints hung on a rose-coloured wall are so romantic and co-ordinating accessories add to the feminine feel. A soft neutral carpet will balance the colour, keeping the scheme subtle.
A comfortable bed is a must, especially if your room is often used by guests – invest in a new mattress if you can’t stretch to a bedstead. Choose a strong classic style that won’t date and position centrally for easy access and maximum impact. A neutral colour palette will please most guests and can be easily modified for individuals. Bring in welcoming colour and texture by layering fresh white bed linen with cushions and throws. Here, additional reclaimed furniture adds to the charming character.
