HOW TO GIVE YOUR BEDROOM AN AUTUMN UPDATE

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

 

As many of you may know, I love any excuse for a little redecorating and the arrival of a new season is always the perfect time to give my bedroom an update. With cool Autumn nights upon us, I adore curling up in bed with a cup of tea and a good book. With that in mind, I’ve put together some tips for creating the ideal bedroom haven at this time of year.

Autum-ise Your Bedding
Nothing says cosy quite like a lovey Cashmere Throw, draped over the bed for added texture and warmth. Replace the Summer white bed linen with warmer tones such as deep blues, greys, dusty pinks and browns. Moodier colour schemes set the tone for the perfect retreat. Piled up Velvet Cushions in rich jewel tones such as teal, gold and deep pink are the ultimate in Autumn bedding. Introducing new colours and textures through soft furnishings is an ideal way to easily transforming your bedroom.

Add Luxury With Velvet
Velvet is such a luxurious fabric that not only feels incredible to lie against but oozes style. Everything looks a little regal covered in velvet, don’t you think? It catches the Autumn light streaming through windows beautifully too…. velvet is simply a must in the bedroom at this time of year!

Play With Pattern

A statement piece of furniture will give your bedroom an instant new season update, adding a touch of interest without overpowering the space. Choosing pieces in patterned fabrics is a fabulous way to transform your bedroom into an oasis you’ll want to hide away in all Autumn. A bedhead, chair or footstool mixed with other textures makes for an ideal space to bunker down as the weather cools.

Toy With Timber
Rich Autumn fabrics and tones team perfectly with timber pieces in the bedroom. Bedside tables in quality materials such as Victorian Oak stacked with candles and low, soft lighting makes all the difference to the feel of a bedroom. Timber pieces also work back beautifully with rich Autumn textures and tones, such as cashmere and velvet . Another little tip – be sure to choose a bedside lamp with low watt, warm toned bulbs for maximum effect.

ANNA SPIRO – ‘ART SERIES’

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

Sometimes you meet people and feel as though you’ve known them your whole life. That’s exactly what happened when I met Anna Spiro! Having long admired the work of this talented Interior Designer, the introduction of her new textile collection was a wonderful opportunity to collaborate. Our shared passion for pattern, colour and texture combined with our individual creative inspirations harmoniously came together and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the result!

Anna launched her unique range of fabrics in September. Made exclusively by hand in Australia, the collection is first illustrated and then screen-printed onto fine Belgian Linen. They became the most inspiring starting point for the bespoke, hand crafted Heatherly pieces you’ll find in this, the first of our exciting new “Art Series’.

The first story features our Clareville bedhead in a deep blue Kahuna Anna Spiro fabric with a contrast pipe. This is teamed with a Kaka Duck Fenwick chair and Adele footstool at the end of the bed finished in the charming Anna Spiro Paniola print.  This bedroom was inspired by a
recent visit to Clareville, a stunning spot north of Sydney, where the pace is slow, the boats are charming and the feeling is good!

The Luella bedhead, finished in Anna Spiro’s Leilani fabric, comes alive in this stunning bedroom where the duo’s passion for pattern, texture, layering and colour come together. This story pays homage to designers such as Anna Spiro and UK design maven Kit Kemp, who are not afraid to follow their convictions. Custom made lighting combined with a stunning shoebox are all finished in Anna Spiro’s fabrics.

The Genevieve story highlights two single beds in Anna’s Kahuna multi fabric. Perfect for girls who are sharing a room, it is a colourful and light-hearted mix of colours that can extend well beyond a young girls room into a teenage room. An opportunity to be more confident in having a bit of fun with fabric selection and colours – Kahuna teamed with Kaka Duck cushions and other stunning accessories is a great way of expressing this.

I’m so incredibly proud of this joyful collection and must say a very special thank you to those who were instrumental in this vision coming to life! Michelle of Pennington Interiors and our design house, the beyond talented Beck Simon for dressing each space to perfection and the extraordinary photographer Lisa Cohen who frames a photo like no other.

And I must mention the wonderful brands whose accessories added the ultimate finishing touches – Bonnie and Neil, Kip & Co, The Family Love Tree, The Woodsfolk, House of Orange, Milk & Sugar, Milton & King, Sam Michelle, Canvas and Sasson, Floorspace Australia, Godfrey Hirst, Bonnie and Neil, St Albans Textiles, Norsu Interiors & Major Minor.
