Having already designed and installed the open plan kitchen and the en suite bath and shower room in this large Victorian home, we were delighted to be commissioned by our clients to undertake their next big project, the main bedroom, working in association with their interior designer, Karen Jackman of Karen Jackman Interiors, who sourced the fabrics and textiles for this scheme.
Our client’s brief was to design a soft luxurious bedroom with plenty of internal storage, a dressing table and a statement headboard. Our client has a love of mid-Century style, so while the look had to be contemporary, it also needed to have 20th Century accents too. We performed a lot of research and found images that would fit the look our client was seeking and a geometric pattern was presented for the wardrobe cabinetry, yet with a circular design to soften the aesthetic. We also recommended floating bedside tables, and a similar style floating dressing table, with a hint of the design repeated for each.
The headboard was handmade in parts to seem like a single piece that include the floating bedside cabinets with mirrored panels above them on either side of a tall centrepiece, which is upholstered in Delft Velvet in Noir by Designers Guild. The same fabric is used for the electric Roman blind and the cushions that accessorise the room, while the curtains are Anshu Zinc, with voiles in Bellavista Blossom, also by Designers Guild. On either side of the bed and integrated within the headboard are LED reading lights, while in front of the bedside cabinets, and also illuminating the dressing table area, are Ada pendant lights by John Lewis. The bedlinen is by The White Company and the velvet bedspread is by Laura Ashley. The room and the cabinetry are decorated in Worsted by Farrow & Ball.
