Vanessa Colyer Tay (the most stylish stylist I know) stopped by to give her four top tips for the bedroom. She has the most amazing eye for detail with an uncanny ability to add life to any space with the slightest touch. You’ll find her styling delights in Country Style and Inside Out, amongst many others.
1. What are the most important considerations in a bedroom?
Comfort, storage and what your feet will feel upon rising in the morning.
2. What is a good approach to layout?
Consider any architectural, lighting or other features that you would like to work with first. Perhaps the bed needs to be centred under a feature light, or positioned so to enjoy the view when you wake up.
3. How do you create a fresh, contemporary look using existing items?
Have a big clean out and only keep the things you absolutely love, then work in a new scheme with them as your base.
4. What are your favourite paint colours and finishes?
Matt finishes and wood wash. I particularly love working with boutique paint companies where you can discuss your exact requirements with an artisan.
