Sunday Morning Style | Upholstered Beds
Nothing says Sunday morning style quite like a luxuriously upholstered bed dressed with white linen and a soft heap of pillows and cushions.
This calm, relaxing look was created by stylist Hannah Deacon for Button & Sprung. The soft neutral colour scheme is designed to make the most of the natural light and lots of different layers and textures have been incorporated to add interest. The resulting effect is sophisticated, but at the same time comfortable and inviting.
Hannah advises using square pillows at the back. I have to confess I've never tried this but it works really well in the above image, drawing the eye further up the headboard - a good tip to keep in mind if you have a tall headboard.
The Lavender bed is a timeless style with a subtle elegance, the height of the headboard providing the kind of high impact style statement you might expect to find in a boutique hotel. It's available in either the divan style shown here or with wooden feet in a choice of finishes - beech, oak, walnut or ebony.
If greys and monochrome aren't to your taste and you find yourself leaning towards slightly warmer colours, then how about this palette of soft blush pink and oatmeal?
A blush colour scheme like this one will look great accented with copper or brass details. Here these are provided by the brass mirror on the shelf above the bed and by the copper table, both of which add just a hint of glamour.
The cushions on the bed extend the colour palette and add graphic detail for a contemporary look, and the bright pink flowers work perfectly as a finishing touch, highlighting the soft pink walls and preventing the colour scheme from feeling too washed out.
Manhattan loft style was the inspiration for the Poppy bed - a chic, clean, contemporary style with a striking buttoned headboard. Simple but elegant.
Or how about the Burdock bed - a timeless design with pure clean lines shown here in a beautiful vibrant shade of blue? I find myself coming back to similar shades of blue time and time again at the moment (see my Pinterest board).
The colour sets the tone of the entire room and provides a base from which to add accessories in co-ordinating prints and patterns, which here includes this season's painterly patterns.
Handmade in solid beech Button and Sprung's upholstered beds come in 11 different styles from contemporary to traditional and romantic. Their patented pocket sprung mattresses are designed to provide 'progressive support' - the more you push on the springs the more they push back - so that each person receives exactly the right amount of support, regardless of their weight, helping to ensure a good night's sleep. When you wake up, leaning back into one of those soft upholstered headboards you'll find yourself perfectly set up for lazy weekend lie ins too.
Just add croissants, a pot of coffee and the Sunday papers.
