A bedroom for a calmer tempo

Life can get wildly busy and when your home is your workspace too, it can be difficult to slow things down. Step into a bedroom that works as a perfect on/off switch, with clutter-banishing storage and a soft, tone-on-tone colour palette for an instantly relaxing atmosphere.

A tonal distinction

If you’re living in a small apartment or studio, colour can help create a necessary division between your bedroom area and the rest of the home. Soft pinks, cool blues and pale woods give this room a ready-for-bed feeling and separate it visually from the adjoining living area on the other side of the glass sliding doors.

Layering different pieces in similar colours can be a great way to unify an area of your home. It can even create the illusion of more space.
