Sleeping sanctuary

It’s your own personal retreat. We show you how to make your bedroom truly restful.

Complementary prints
Print and pattern packs a punch. An artwork, rug or piece of furniture is a great place to springboard from when curating your colour scheme. Taking colour cues from the Kirra Jamison print, a complementary colour palette of indigo and mustard kicked this roomset into top gear. When you’re mixing prints, make your colours match so the overall effect easier on the eye. Try painting a bedhead straight onto the wall, then stack feather pillows to up the comfort factor.
