Pastel Gingham Bedroom
The furniture in this bedroom at a French farmhouse was sourced from local antiques shops and markets in Tarn, south-west France. Raoul Textiles’ ‘Mahatma’ design was used for the curtains, with the armchair upholstered in Kathryn M Ireland’s ‘Ikat Stripe’. Lamps from Vaughan add another layer of pattern.
Victorian Brass Bed
Grove Lodge, the Cambridge home of Tim Knox, director of The Fitzwilliam Museum, and landscape designer Todd Longstaffe-Gowan, provides the perfect setting for the couple’s growing collection of artwork and curiosities. In the spare bedroom a gallery wall of antique pictures has been coupled with a brass bed-frame and gingham bedspread.
Pink Bedroom with Green Four-Poster
A bedroom on the first floor of Tom Helme’s Carskiey Estate has a soft, pastel palette, with window and bed curtains in a matching ‘N-098’ wicker linen from Fermoie.
Cream Bedroom with Floral Curtains
In the main bedroom of Ed and Polly Nicholson’s Wiltshire home, an eighteenth-century lacquered chest, which provides a contrasting tone, stands between windows with curtains in ‘Secret Garden’ by Raoul Textiles.
Downtown Style Traditional Bedroom
The main bedroom at Faringdon House, the Oxfordshire home of writer Sofka Zinovieff, is full of character and pattern as one might expect from the house that used to belong to eccentric Lord Berners, the composer, artist and writer who was immortalised in Nancy Mitford’s novel The Pursuit of Love as the whimsical character Lord Merlin.
