Get the look : relaxin’ all cool bedroom

This winter, keep things cool and cosy with smokey blues, emerald greens and luxurious textures in the bedroom. Want to recreate this look at home? Città Stylist Sam van Kan and homestyle Editor Alice Lines have some top tips for styling your bedroom. 


1. When restyling your bedroom for autumn, begin by coming up with a tight edit of just a few hues. With a defined colour palette in mind, you can rest assured that any new additions will work in harmony with the pieces you already have.

2. Here we kept things cool and calm by teaming an ash-coloured chambray linen duvet set with an oatmeal linen pillow and matching euro for tone-on-tone simplicity. Additional cushions in complementary shades but different textures dial up the luxury.

3. A private space such as this is the ideal place in which to dedicate a wall for use as a gallery for artwork, family photos and mementos that you want to admire every day but don’t want to have on display for guests. Choose a common shade for your frames to tie the items together, and add other curios to the wall to vary the composition.

4. A bench at the end of the bed is the would-be bedroom stylist’s best friend. A practical spot for books and tomorrow’s outfit, it also serves as a full stop for the story you’ve created with your bedding. The key here is size: too small and your bench will look out of balance with the bed; too big and it’ll dominate the room. Aim for something that’s close to but no larger than the width of your bed. You could also try a pair of chests or stools, or a row of baskets.
