As the year draws to an end, it’s time to give your bedroom – and senses – a relaxing reboot. We share the monochrome essentials that will have you dreaming in colour.
Your bedroom should be a calming space where you can relax and reboot after a busy day. Black-and-white designs create a soothing interplay between positive and negative space. Plus, they’re ideal for making a subtle graphic statement.
Breathe life into a nondescript surface with a tactile table runner and graphic vase. The monochrome colourway of this striped table runner from H&M has an unpretentious ethnic underpinning, while this antique-look vase from SHF begs to be filled with a bunch of colourful blooms.
Give your pared-back room a graphic boost with the Native American-pattern Cherokee Herb scatter by Hertex. The accents of deep indigo, rich amber and spicy coral add an eclectic point of interest.
Knotty, but nice
Shibori, an ancient Japanese tie-dye technique using a saturated indigo hue, has been applied to these hand-woven wool-and-cotton-blend rugs from Hertex. Add one as a calm counterpoint to a tableau of vivid colour.
Scent and scentsibility
James and Cally Palmer, the brother-and-sister team behind MIYU Handmade, have given brutalist cement a soft touch by using it as a candleholder. Light the softly scented candle after a hectic day and watch your worries melt away.
The ties that bind
Abstract pattern makes a bold statement – even on a small scale. Made from pure cotton, the Tie-dye Embroidery scatter from Weylandts is the perfect counterpart to crisp, white bed linen.
Hang in there
Mother and daughter Sue and Robyn Britz of Zana are well known for their nifty decor goods and graphic fabrics. This printed cotton and copper magazine holder is no different, and mixes fun and function. It’s the ideal storage solution for the reams of mags and books next to your bed.
If you’re not keen on going monochrome, why not introduce a touch of boho pattern to your bedroom? @home’s latest range of bedroom essentials features on-trend layers in rich mid-tone hues. Stick to one colour for a subtle statement, or mix colour and pattern to create a vibrant, lively space.
