My dream space? I resisted the urge of having a huge bed in the middle of a room, a million cushions and throws, with a constant supply of tea, coffee and cake. Yes, I feel like I could sleep forever at the moment, can you tell?
Instead I put my mind to an adult space for me, a relaxing one that I didn’t have to worry about children’s finger prints and toys. A room just for me, now wouldn’t that be amazing?
It would be a pure white space, white floor and walls, it would feel open and crisp and clean. Within that space, I needed there to be natural elements, to bring warmth and texture. So the first item I choose is this Walnut vertical door. Its gorgeous isn’t it? My whole room design is going to be built around this door, and those perfectly white walls and floors.
The view from the timber windows, would be would my most favourite view of all, of the sea and sand. So I could relax listening to the crashing of the waves, the ebb and flow being my constant companion. I would make sure the colours from the outside were reflected in the room. So this is why I chose golds, like the sand adding an opulence, and warmth. I needed there to be nature in the room too, and these shells echo the golden and white hues I have chosen. I also loved the ripple effect of these vases in the same colours, with living cacti, so the room had life in it.
In a successful room, I always like to give it depth and wood, especially darker woods like teak and walnut are great for this, adding this kind of darker anchor to a room is really pleasing to the eye. I wanted to add fabric and texture too. There is no way I could ever have a white fabric sofa, whilst I have children, but I have always wanted one, so that was the last thing in my room together with a mirror, to reflect the beautiful landscape that was outside.
What do you think, do you like my dream space, I’m not sharing though!
