Mirror Mirror on the Wall
We know too many mirrors in the bedroom can be a bit tacky, but this is just divine!! This glamorous, rich and original bedroom designed by Jeff Macnamara screams taste without screaming decorator.
How do they make it look so effortless?
The trifold mirror screens soften the corners of a very small room and open it right up. Bay having them reflect all different angles, the effect is quite dynamic..
The big myth out there is that dark walls make a room look smaller. When there is enough light, they just make a room look richer and the bed and besides absolutely pop in front of that rich grey. Imagine this room with white walls…boring.
The colour scheme is not overly matched or contrived. The bottle green colour of the lamps plays off the flowers and a stripe in the accent cushion which ties in with the vintage suitcases, and the painting doesn’t match anything…it is just as it should be –ART.
The console table at the end of the bed instead of ottomans or a chest is truly inspired, and why not? It acts like a kind of footboard and a beautiful surface to create your own personal tableau.
Instead of a headboard, they have opted for a large work of art with a light over it that can also serve as a bit of reading light…money well spent.
To Get The Look with Eco Chic – our new Finola Bedspread in white will keep things crisp. Throw on a set of Ajour Italian Cotton sheets and you will never want to get out of bed. For a simple console table try the Wayfarer in timber or the Shari console in pressed tin. For splash of colour on the bedsides, the Sofia Table Lamps always pack a punch. Finally, for a large colourful work of art to put over the bed our you cant go past our Aboriginal Tjukula Wall hanging.
