French style is ever popular in country interiors and this chic country bedroom is the height of elegance.
The painted bed creates a beautiful focal point in the scheme. Partner with pretty furniture such as the decorative Gustavian chest of drawers shown here (this one is the Marie design from Gustavian and is painted in a pretty blush pink for subtle warmth). Then introduce extra drama with an oversized chandelier – perfect for a room with a high ceiling as it helps to break up the space.
What really sets the scheme off beautifully though is the gorgeous statement-making floral backdrop that pulls the look together. The stunning wallpaper, Palais in Redowa from the Revolution Wallpapers collection by Little Greene, is a classic interpretation of a pattern typical of French wallpaper panels produced by the manufacturer Réveillon from the late 1700s onwards.
