As we countdown the days until moving in, I’ve been having a look round at the new season offerings when it comes to bedrooms.
I love traveling, especially the Middle East, so seeing that Bedouin-inspired fabrics and Moorish prints are in is really hitting my style buttons. We’ve gone for white and deep blue walls in the bedroom so I’d love to incorporate a little souk style in there. There’s something deeply cosy about Marrakech – the rich culture, the homely food, the spices and the sweets – and this means it is perfect inspiration for a bedroom.

So we’ve decided to go ahead with a really dark wall in the bedroom.
At first we were unsure; our master room is actually the smallest room, but it has the best view. We can sit in bed and watch the birds in the bird box, so it really beat the view of the driveway or the view of next door’s wall!
I’m really drawn to dark, dramatic walls, and when we first painted the bedroom it was entirely white. It was nice, but a little too clean for a cosy bedroom. We looked at a few different colours and ended up going for Farrow & Ball’s Stiffkey Blue, but had it matched by Dulux for a better application (more on that later!).
I’m trying to work out which colours to match with it – we already have grey and gold, black and white, but I definitely feel it needs a little pop of something unexpected.
I’ve been trawling through Pinterest for inspo.
I love the delicate comforter with the deep wall.
Magenta looks amazing!
A single bold cushion looks great.
I love this simple chair.
I think this colour palette is for us!
The mid-century look is drawing me in.
A print looks great.
I might add colour with flowers.
Green might be an option…
