How To Get an Insta-worthy Bedroom
July 5, 2019 at 2:45 pm 0

With Instagram becoming an amazing source of interior inspiration, more and more of you are creating home accounts and getting stuck in with a rapidly growing community of interior lovers.

Amalfi Kingsize Storage Bed in Peacock Velvet

But how do you get that Insta-worthy bedroom shot without spending thousands on re-decorating (or having enough followers to get everything gifted to you)? We've got a few tips and inspiration from some of our amazing customers, plus some insider secrets from our Stylist to help you create that Insta-worthy bedroom.

Chic and Subtle

The first style we're looking at is super easy to achieve and requires little more than a simple velvet bed and a muted feature wall.

Choosing a great quality headboard with subtle detailing is the key to creating a calming bedroom interior. Our Turin and Paolo Beds both have super soft velvet upholstery and subtle yet very effective details.

The Turin has a neat pipe around the headboard, while the Paolo has a subtle stitch detail and gentle wings to create a cosy cocoon feel.

@alishialove has paired the soft feather grey velvet of our Turin with the smokey green feature wall.

@moderntownhome has gone for a very similar look, with the Paolo bed and a clay pink statement wall.

The soft feather grey velvet of both the Turin and Paolo work so well against muted wall colours due to its warmer undertones. Choose a colour with a slight grey tint to create that calming and serene atmosphere.

When styling a bedroom like this, choose natural woods or stick to simple white furniture so as to not distract from your statement wall and super soft bed. Try to avoid too many clashing textures- a chunky throw at the end of the bed will help soften the look, but stick to one or two textures to keep your space calm.

Stylists Top Tip: When creating a calming bedroom, always choose warmer tones and stick to a very simple colour palette. Avoid using too many different colours as this can create a visually stimulating space, which is not ideal for a bedroom.

Mid-Century Modern

Mid-century styled spaces are still huge in the world of interiors, with new twists always appearing to create a more modern look. This gorgeous bedroom from @appleton2plus_morrishomes has just the right amount of mid-century styling with the side tables and lamps, while the Amalfi bed in Peacock brings that modern twist.

The Amalfi Bed in Peacock goes perfectly with the dark feature wall.
A touch of wood brings a mid-century vibe, while the colour and panelling of the Amalfi headboard support the modern styling.

You can be more playful with prints and textures in a mid century style home. Pair geometrics with tribal prints to really mix things up. Remember to keep your prints focused to one area, and let the design of your furniture do the rest of the talking.

Maximalist Bedroom

Maximalism is becoming more and more popular in our homes, with many of us seeking out ways to make our homes more personal. (Find out more about maximalist style here). However, use a toned down version of maximalism in your bedroom to ensure this remains a calming and relaxing zone.

@lifeatno.15 Has created this dramatic style with a bold floral mural wallpaper.

@lifeatno.15 has perfected a subtle maximalist look but pairing an oversized floral mural wallpaper with a super soft and silky velvet bed.

By choosing wallpaper in a bold print but with harmonious colours creates a calming vibe while remaining a true style statement. For an extra element to your maximalist style, choose a larger bed to make more of a design statement.

Stylist Top Tip: Pick out one or two colours from a bold wallpaper to use throughout the room. The colours you choose here will greatly affect the overall style. For example, @lifeatno.15 has pulled out the blush pink and grey to create a soft, feminine look. However, if she had chosen the subtle shades of cream and green this look overall would be much more muted and minimal.

Get The Look:

The Manolo Bed with its subtle . button back details brings a statement to modern homes.

Use the Plaza Stool with a tray on top as a convenient and multi-functional bedside.

Contemporary Beds: Ultimate Bed Buying Guide
January 18, 2019 at 2:17 pm 0
Mellow Teal Velvet King Size BedBuying a bed is a big investment for your home. And it's where we spend most of our time too. With most of us spending between 7 to 9 hours a night curled up under the covers, you'll want to make sure the bed you choose is as comfortable, supportive and long-lasting as it can be. If you're a little overwhelmed by the number of contemporary beds available, take a look at our bed buying tips and you'll be choosing the perfect piece in no time!

Double, King or Super King?

TYPE Double King Super King
AVG. SIZE 4ft6 UK Double. 135cm x 190cm / 4'6 x 6'3" 5ft UK King size. 150cm x 200cm / 5' x 6'6" 6ft UK Super King size. 180cm x 200cm / 6' x 6'6"
WEIGHT BEARING 500kgs 500kgs 500kgs

Double Bed

A double bed is a great size for a spare room or as an upgrade from a single bed in a room where space is a little limited. A double can comfortably fit two people and is a popular choice.

King Size Bed

If you’ve got the space, consider a king size bed frame. A traditional king size bed may be too bulky for a small bedroom, however, they do offer that extra bit of sleeping and potential storage space.

Super Kingsize Bed

The extra inches of a super king size bed frame will not only keep you well supported, it also gives you and your sleeping partner that extra bit of room to move around and get comfortable without disturbing one another.

Top Tip: If you’re upgrading your bed size  - think about your bedding! A king size isn’t too much bigger than a double, so you might be able to pass. However, jumping from a double to a super king you’ll need some new sheets.

Consider Your Space:

    • It’s best to leave a minimum of 76cm at all sides of your bed so you can get around it comfortably. This will also allow enough room for bedside tables, wardrobe/cabinets, doors to open etc.
    • Could you downsize your current bedframe to make more use of your room? Or upsize if you have space? Consider what’s more important, extra flooring or extra room in bed.
  • If you don't yet have a bed in your room, get a feel for the sizing by using masking tape or a piece of cardboard to mark out where it’ll sit.

Questions to Ask Before You Buy:

    • Does the bed come with a headboard?
    • Are there storage options?
    • What’s my budget?
    • Do I have space to open the storage options?
    • How will the bed be delivered - fully assembled, or is assembly needed?
    • Is a mattress included?
    • What does the bed's guarantee cover, and for how long?
  • Will it fit through my door?

Choosing Your Bed Frame

Height: The height of the frame and the matress will affect how easy it is to get in and out of the bed. There’s not right or wrong, just what suits you and your space. Headboards: A tall headboard will add both impact and grandeur to any bedroom interior, whereas a shorter headboard will help to open up the space. Contemporary beds are available in a variety of designs so you can realy have some fun with your styling.  Structure: No one wants a bed that feels wobbly or creaky every time someone rolls over! That’s why it’s important to check the bedframe. Ask yourself:
    • How is it constructed?
    • What’s holding it in place?
  • What materials have been used?
A selection of our contemporary beds are constructed of bowed beech slats. These then slot into place onto aluminium base rails, using sturdy plastic fittings to support your mattress. This helps to keep it in the most supportive and comfortable position. It’s factors like this that ensure you’re choosing a supportive and quality bed, so they’re important to check. Flooring: beds are weighty pieces of furniture so you’ll want to protect the flooring underneath. Floor protectors on the feet, or having a rug or carpet are all simple solutions to keep your flooring looking its best.

Top Tip: When it comes to assembling a slat frame bed, pre-assemble your bed slats and then put the bed together, rather than attaching them one by one when the frame is in place. This will save both time and effort!

Contemporary Beds & Simple Storage

Everyday Access vs Longer Storage

What you want to store in your bed will help you choose the type of storage you need. If you’re looking to house clothes you regularly need, opt for a bed with drawers as this allows for easy access. Items you want to store for longer periods of time, like winter coats and bedding, would be better stored in an ottoman bed as this offers more support and space.
Amalfi Peacock Velvet King Size Bed with Storage

The internal storage for the Amalfi is a great space saver.

Top Tip: With a fixed frame bed, consider the height from the floor to the underside of the bed as this may allow for space for storage underneath.

Snooze in Style

Once you know your sizing, you can move onto the fun stuff- the styling! And with our Stylist’s bedroom cheatsheet, creating a cosy bedroom interior couldn't be easier….
  • Stick to a minimal colour palette - Choose colours within the same shade to create a complementary look and create a serene setting.
  • You can’t beat fresh white sheets - you can then add a couple of tonal cushions for an added element of colour- but simple is always best.
    • Clash your textures - for example, balance the smoothness of velvet with a chunky knit and cool metallics like brass and copper for an effortlessly trendy and designer look.
    • Less is always more - The more bits and bobs you have on display, the more cluttered your bedroom will feel. Invest in trendy boxes or side tables with drawers to hide all those unsightly necessities. Tidy room, tidy mind.
    • Play with proportions - Avoid an expanse of bed linen by breaking it up with throws and cushions.
    • Wooden floors need a rug - You can choose an area rug, to sit under and around the base of your bed, or a couple of runners either side, just to keep your toes toasty on cold mornings.
    • Warm things up with chunky knits and sheepskin rugs. You don't want your bedroom to feel cold and uninviting.
  • Style your bedside tables simply - a simple stack of your favourite books, a pretty vase and a relaxing candle should be more than enough.

Care & Cleaning

Velvet Bed Frame

Velvet upholstery is far easier to clean and maintain than you may think. Firstly, the 100% polyester short pile velvet we use for our range of furniture has been rub tested to 40,000 rubs, so you know it’s far from delicate. It’s best to act as soon as a spill occurs, as it’s far easier to clean velvet before the mark sinks through to penetrate the base cloth.
  1. To wipe away marks, use an absorbent cloth or paper towel to soak up the spillage. Dab the surface rather than rubbing as this will better soak up the liquid.
  2. To clean your velvet furniture, all you need to use is a soft cloth and some warm soapy water, wiping the fabric in a circular motion.
  3. Then, leave the material to air dry or use a hair dryer to speed up the process.
  4. You can also vacuum your velvet upholstery by using the handheld nozzle. This will better collect any dust or bits that have been caught up in the pile. Be sure to use the upholstery attachment on your vacuum as this will be much softer on your velvet and avoid any unwanted marks.
If you feel your velvet upholstery has lost a bit of its sheen, have no fear. You can use a steamer to restore its signature shine by keeping the nozzle moving across the velvet at a moderate pace. Move in the direction of the nap and hold the steamer about an inch away from the fabric for the best results. Once completely dry, brush the material in the direction of the nap using a soft-bristled hairbrush. We also suggest regularly brushing your velvet bed frame with a velvet brush or soft clothes brush, going in the direction of the nap. 

Fabric Bed Frame

Our melange fabric bed frames are upholstered in a fabric made from single or spun melange yarn. You can tell it apart from other multi-coloured or dyed fabrics as you can see varying colour flecks, rather than it being one solid colour.

Spot Cleaning

Spot cleaning your bed frame is probably your best option, as it's unlikely you'll need to go ahead and deep clean the whole frame. To do this:
  1. For any small little marks, you can usually clean them off with some warm soapy water- as long as you catch them quick enough! Put 1 tablespoon of dish soap (such as Fairy) into 2 cups of warm water.
  2. Take a clean white cloth and dab it into your soapy water. Pat over the stain (don't rub) and use a dry white cloth to absorb the water. Repeat this 3-4 times until stain has gone.
  3. If you have a slightly more stubborn stain, then try adding 1x tablespoon of white vinegar into your soapy solution. White vinegar is a great household cleaner and can be used in all sorts of cleaning solutions. Don’t worry about the vinegar smell, as this will disappear once dry

Bedroom Styling Tips with our Interior Stylist
November 16, 2018 at 10:25 am 0
We've all seen how to style a sideboard, coffee tables and shelves. But when it comes to bedroom styling, it's not enough just to get the furniture right. Styling your bedroom correctly will transform it from a place just to sleep, to where you want to spend your time. It's these simple, homely touches that will finish off your bedroom and add plenty of personality.   Bedroom styling: Rene bed in midnight blue velvet

Rene Velvet Bed in Midnight

  We've recently added a collection of beds to the Danetti family. So what better way to show you two different looks than with our new range of velvet beds! Available in Double, King and Superking, you're bound to find the bed of your dreams.    

Bedroom Styling Essentials

Before we get into interior bedroom trends, you need to know your styling basics. No bedroom is complete with the following:
  • Decent Mattress
  • High-Quality Duvet and Pillows
  • Statement Bed (from Danetti)
  • Lighting
  • Soft furnishings
It may seem obvious, but without one of these elements, your room can feel stark, cold and very uninviting. Regardless of your personal interior style, these are the five must-haves when it comes to how to style a bed and bedroom.  

Moody Bedroom Styling

A key trend for interiors right now is dark, moody and rich colours. By using a dark colour in the bedroom, you will create the illusion of more space. All the while creating a cosy, snug room you can't wait to be in. Although the thought of painting your bedroom black can be scary, that doesn't mean your room will feel gothic and dark.   Rene bed in midnight blue velvet

Top Tip: Offset dark walls with white bedding and light textures. Choosing lighter elements will lift the room and make your chosen colour really stand out.

  The Rene Bed in Midnight Velvet sits beautifully against our Black Blue wall, as the curves of the headboard pick up light and add depth and tone. If, for example, you had a dark blue fabric headboard against a nearly black wall, it could look flat and lacking in interest. The way the velvet picks up the light helps to show the shape of the bed, drawing your focus here, rather than the dark walls.   Rene bed in midnight blue velvet

  If black walls aren't for you, look at dark greys, berries, browns or blues to create the same look. Just be sure to complement the colour of your chosen bed. It's easier to paint your walls than buy a new bed!  

Bedroom Styling Tips

  When you come to simple bedroom decorating ideas and adding that personal touch, remember to follow these top styling rules:
  • Stick to a minimal colour palette. When you have a statement bed, you don't want your styling to overpower your headboard. Choose colours within the same shade to create a complementary look and create a serene setting.
 
  • You can't beat fresh white sheets. White sheets are a classic. When you want your bed to stand out, keep bedding simple. Add a couple of tonal cushions for an added element of colour- but simple is always best.
 
  • Clash your textures. Velvet beds are beautiful and look super luxe. However, if you're after a softer, more relaxed look, balance the smoothness of velvet with a chunky knit and cool metallics like brass and copper. These metallic finishes will lift the styling and add a layer of luxe.

  • Mimic shapes. Where the Rene bed has an Art Deco-inspired curved headboard, we've chosen the Pablo table lamps as our bedside lights. The spherical shade and arched marble base mimic the shape of the Rene bed, tying the look together. The marble texture also adds another modern art deco vibe.
 
  • Less is always more. Feel free to add pictures of your loved ones and the typical alarm clocks and beauty products to your bedside tables. Just remember to keep things clear. The more bits and bobs you have on display, the more cluttered your bedroom will feel. Invest in trendy boxes or side tables with drawers to hide all those unsightly necessities. Tidy room, tidy mind.
   

Bright and Breezy Bedroom Styling

Dark walls aren't for everyone. Dark rooms will feel cosy in the evenings, however, if you struggle to wake up in the mornings, think about a clean, bright white bedroom. This way you will keep light bouncing around your room, and introduce colour through your furniture, rather than walls.   Mellow velvet bed in ochre

  Our second bedroom decor look differs from the Rene bed in almost every way, except for one thing; the statement velvet headboard. Available in Teal, Ochre or Pepper Grey Velvet, our Mellow bed is the most perfect way to inject a splash of colour into a white bedroom. Whether you're a fan of a clean, scandi style, or a more eclectic, vintage look, the Mellow bed suits any interior style.   Mellow velvet bed in ochre  

Top Tip: Pendant lights work great as bedside lamps. They will keep your side tables clear while creating a style statement.

  Choosing a bright colour for your bed is an effortless way to bring an interior designer look to your bedroom. Let the bed be the focus, and keep your soft furnishings subtle and tonal. The shape of the Mellow bed with its smooth, sweeping velvet headboard lends itself perfectly to versatile, constantly changing interiors.   Mellow velvet bed in teal

Colour Combinations

One of our favourite features of the Mellow bed is the rich colour palette. You can play with different colour combination with your soft furnishings to change things up as often as you like. As homewares tend to be more reasonably priced than a bed, you can afford to be a bit more adventurous with your colour combinations. Here are a few of our bedroom styling colour suggestions:  
  • Teal: Combine teal with cherry reds, navy blues and highlights of brass. The Navy will compliment the Teal, while the pop of red will be your accent colour. Mix and match textures and prints for a real eclectic look.
 
  • Ochre: Pair this soft mustard yellow with burnt orange, soft grey and graphic black and white textures. Ochre and orange complement each other while the grey will tone down the look. Monochrome textures will add a level of depth to your bedroom decor.
 
  • Pepper Grey: Possibly the most versatile colour of the Mellow bed is the Pepper Grey. The world is your oyster with this one, however, we would suggest adding a bit of colour to your bedroom decor. Play with forest greens and dusky pinks for an on-trend style with a hint of vintage glamour. Add elements of brass and marble for a true luxe look.

Bedroom Styling Tips

Styling a white bedroom gives you the freedom to choose any colour or accessory your inner stylist desires. These are some of our Stylist's top tips for decorating a simple bedroom:  
  • Play with proportions. When styling a king size bed, you need to be aware of proportions. Avoid an expanse of bed linen by breaking it up with throws and cushions.
 
  • Choose classic wall art. There are many online websites where you can buy cheap prints. These are great if you want to update your home regularly, however you cannot go wrong with a classic art print. Be it an Andy Warhol Tomato Soup print, or maybe a vintage poster you picked up from a flea market. These are the treasures with meaning behind them and are unlikely to date. Keep wall art to a minimum in the bedroom, and remember to stick to a classic.
 
  • Wooden floors need a rug. It's a big trend at the moment to pull up the carpets and show of your exposed floorboard (if you're lucky enough to have them). However, this can make your bedroom feel cold, so always ensure you have a rug in your bedroom. You can choose an area rug, to sit under and around the base of your bed, or a couple of runners either side, just to keep your toes toasty on cold mornings.

  • Warm things up. As we get into the winter months, make your bedroom a snuggly, hygge space with chunky knits and sheepskin rugs. It's these soft elements which will create that cosy cocoon you won't want to leave.
 
  • Style your bedside tables simply. Don't over-do the bedside table decor. Choosing hanging pendant lights will keep your table top clear, although this doesn't mean you have more space for clutter! A simple stack of your fave books, a pretty vase and a relaxing candle should be more than enough.
