If you’re hunting for inspiration for an elegant country bedroom scheme, look no further than this beautiful French-style bedroom with a contemporary twist.
At its heart is a stunning French upholstered bed and a Louis chair re-covered in a plush velvet that up the comfort factor. A tranquil colour palette comprising evocatively named shades such as vintage rose, pebble and shell ensures the decor is super soothing.
But it’s the wealth of subtle patterns that catch the eye as they work beautifully together to create a modern look. Archive motifs inspired by lace emblems and floral trails have been reworked for contemporary appeal – from the stunning skeleton leaf using pointillism and beading on the feature wall that’s the backdrop to the scheme, to the embroidered Jacobean motif of the bed throw. Lustrous satins and sumptuous velvets add to the understated opulence. (The fabrics and wallpaper are all from the Purity Collection by Harlequin.)
This is a look that demands a luxe window treatment. Layering is a great way of adding interest, as well as keeping light out for a good night’s sleep, and a combination of a linen Roman blind and floor-length curtains make for a practical and timeless dressing.
