As spring comes around, the snap in the season brings changes: daffodils carpet the grass and the morning light comes a little earlier. It’s also a really great time to refresh your decor and starting in the bedroom is an especially luxurious treat. After the extravagances of Christmas, where you have possibly entirely forgotten yourself, a couple of well-chosen pieces of furniture or accessories that sit beautifully with your Naturalmat mattress will bring a fresh touch to your home.
The quintessentially cool Scandinavian style that nods to mid-century, iconic design in a very modern way is still a staple in decorating trends this spring. Taking inspiration from artisan makers, Ferm Living ‘Enter’ mirror in two sizes, would look chic alongside Naturalmat ‘Devon Oak Bed’. The soft brown leather adds a touch of warmth while the circular shape keeps the whole look thoroughly modern. Another Scandinavian brand, Normann Copenhagen, have some fantastic additions which would create a clean and simple look that focuses on the quality of craftsmanship and materials. Their ‘Toj’ clothes rack is a gorgeous way to display some of your favourite pieces of clothes. For a quick revival, investing in new lighting will create an entirely different feel to a room. Made.com ‘Rita’ ceiling light has elements of Scandi-cool with the marble base and soft, matte-grey wide shade which will ensure that your room is lit to perfection.
The Beauty of Monochrome
The monochrome trend is relentlessly chic, achingly cool and its simplicity gives you the opportunity to showcase the beauty of your bedroom furniture. Investing in a rug for the foot of your bed will instantly create a sense of character in a room, as well as a touch of luxury. House Doctor ‘Ribas’ hand-dyed rug made from 80% wool is a must-have piece for the season, taking its inspiration from 70s design with its delicate fringing and geometric patterns. If you want to gently tap into the monochrome trend, investing in new and bold bedding gives you the opportunity to indulge your monochrome fancies. Fine Little Day make beautiful bedding from 100% organic cotton and their ‘Water Lilies’ collection is vibrant and eye-catching, the perfect accompaniment to The Torrington Bed. If you have some cool black and white prints around, MOXON magnetic print frames in black and white are an elegant way to frame pictures, in an almost-destructed style.
The little touches can be all it takes to bring some fresh life into your bedroom and these little extra things are really worth investing in. Warm table lights such as Louise Poulson ‘VL38’ lamp has elements of the traditional with its brushed brass finish but the balloon style shade and teardrop shaped base keep the look thoroughly modern. &tradition Bulb Pendant SR1’ lamp caters to a vintage taste without being too quirky. These would all look fabulous with Naturalmat’s collection of traditional style beds such as The Vanstone and The Carrick. For sumptuous atmosphere, high-quality candles are a real luxury and Campagnie de Provence make exquisite smelling candles from 100% vegetable wax which scents your room like Provence on a hot summer’s day.
Your Children's Room
Treating your little one to a few little special touches in their room can really revitalise their space. Wall stickers add a fun touch to any child’s room, but that needn’t mean they can’t fit in with your style. Ferm Living’s collections feature monochrome geometric shapes for a cool, Scandi touch. Their mini drop ones are adorable and would look special in a baby’s room next to their crib. Fine Little Day’s ‘Ohoy’ is a beautifully illustrated swaddle blanket that would look sweet in the Leander cradle. Made from 100% organic cotton, this blanket is a multitasker and can be used in the pram or for nursing. Cushions that look like lovely little dolls are a great choice for a child’s bedroom and Amaydeeme ‘La Luna En Tus Ojos’ from Cissy Wears is a fantastic choice. Cuddly enough for your little one to snooze with but chic enough to display on a nursery chair, this cushion is a designer favourite.
Making some well-thought out design choices with accessories here and there means you can refresh a tired old bedroom into something modern, classic, chic and somewhere you cannot wait to spend the night in.
