Love this bedroom

  • Start with watercolour-style flower-print fabric and use on key items, such as a footstool or cushions.
  • Experiment with floating shelves of varying lengths within an alcove. Add favourite ornaments of different shapes and heights to create maximum visual impact.
  • For a modern take on a country-cottage scheme, look for furniture made out of reclaimed timber, with industrial steel detailing. Contrasting materials like these create the perfect balance of form and texture.

 

Clever Idea

Incorporate vintage books, collections of magazines and framed prints to give your display a balance between old and new.

 

Styling Tip

Add interest to a chest by tucking faux flowers into some of the drawers for a rustic display that will last all season.

Modern Country

Give your space a spring update by bringing the outdoors into your scheme. Begin with wood-effect wallpaper to add texture and act as a neutral backdrop to fl oral fabrics. Finish by highlighting alcoves or the backs of shelves with chalky paints.

 

Keep it simple

Stick to a limited palette, simple motifs and a plain rug to create a soothing space.

 

Decorating with muted shades

Pastel Pink - This classy colour sits extremely well with gentle natural hues as it has an earthy undertone. Use sparingly to accentuate statement pieces of furniture or dainty accessories.

Soft Sage - When applied generously, this classic fresh and cheerful green creates a relaxing, country-inspired space.
