Islands of alone time

In the quaint little cottage shared by a mother and daughter, the bedrooms have become a much-needed breakaway space for each of them to enjoy on their own. Though furnished for two generations with two very different needs, both spaces are consistent in their fresh, country style and feel like a long, satisfied exhalation after a well-spent day.

Creating the calm you crave

For a mother who's on her feet most of the day, busy life inspired her to create a bedroom that's exclusively for relaxing. It's therefore only fitting that her fabulous, free-standing bed takes center stage, draped in 100% cozy, cotton bed linen. That opens up just enough room behind for a dressing area, separated by soft curtains. And take a look at those laundry bags which she uses for everything from her washing to a day at the beach. She loves them so much, she bought two!

A new kind of comfort zone

Choosing to place a bed in the middle of a room may very well go against everything you’re used to. Take a peek at how it’s done here for a little inspiration.

Too dreamy for words

In a room designed purely for relaxation and sleep, investing in beautiful textiles, some underfoot softness and mood-matching bedding is a must.

A world of one's own

Though not the biggest of spaces, it's amazing how many activities the daughter's room can accommodate. It's all down to space-saving furniture that serves more than one function: like a loft bed with built-in storage and desk space, a side table and drawer unit in one, and a daybed that doubles as a sleepover solution for friends on the weekend.

A base for years to come

With her teenage years ahead of her, she and her mom created a room that feels both grown up and easy to grow into. The white base, woven rug and natural textiles tie in with the timeless style of the house, while her ornaments and wall art can be updated as she gets older.

Things look good from up here

The same square footage where she sleeps at night are also where she scribbles away during the day – and does her homework, of course! Her space-doubling loft bed makes the most of her small room, and even has some shelves on the side for all her workbooks, files and spare bed linen.
