inspiration of the week: a small bedroom that’s big on pattern
here it is…
At first glance, you probably wouldn’t have guessed that this is a hotel room. I think it’s fabulous! The hotel rooms I recently stayed in did not look like this little gem.
This room is from the Covent Garden Hotel in London. The interior design of this fantastic hotel is by Kit Kemp, co-owner and creative director of Firmdale Hotels. The wallpaper is Mud print, the drapery fabric is One way, and the sofa fabric is Criss Cross, all designed by Kit Kemp, and created by Christopher Farr Cloth.
People are sometimes so afraid to use multiple patterns in small rooms. This bedroom is an excellent example of how to use a variety of patterns in a space without it feeling busy. You can’t go wrong with a blue and green color pallet, and the splashes of marigold add a touch of warmth to the room.
I’ve always been a fan of white bedding. I like how it’s crisp, clean, and easy to launder. I also love the fact that the bedside table lamps have a metal shade that directs the light downward. When you are winding down at the end of the day, it’s important to limit the amount of artificial light in your bedroom.
The photo below is from the Ham Yard Hotel, and it’s another excellent example of these fun patterns used in a small space.
