Understated natural shades are ever popular and this gorgeous country bedroom incorporates a delicate colour palette of whites, neutrals and soft limed pastels to create a relaxing, pared-down retreat.
The fabrics and wallpaper are from Harlequin‘s new Poetica collection, which is sure to appeal to nature lovers as they are inspired by the English countryside. Reminiscent of a nature lover’s scrapbook, whimsical prints include botanical studies with a contemporary edge, plus distressed-look textured printed plains, embroideries, weaves, appliqués and floaty linen voiles to accompany them. Wallcoverings, such as this weathered wood-effect design, form an eyecatching backdrop to the botanical motifs.
For maximum effect, make the centrepiece of the scheme a beautiful cream wrought-iron bed and add extra character with eclectic pieces such as the wonderful vintage wirework table.
