The trend towards simplicity has been evolving for a number of years – clean simple lines, neutrals and whites, minimalist décor. Limiting the colour palette in your interior is another great way to keep things simple.

Limited colour palettes are simple, minimal and elegant. They are timeless and powerful because they help create focus in a world that can be oversaturated visually. A limited colour palette is different to the monochrome look in that you can choose colours from different hues however, there is generally only two or three different hues used.

The Linen Specialists here at McKenzie & Willis have selected just two for this look – blue/grey and gold. The Charly headboard from Le Forge, the wallpaper by Osborne & Little and the metal side tables from French Country all sit within the blue/grey tone. The gold is beautifully represented by the new range from Bianca Lorrene. Featuring the Luchesi Gold rich velvet comforter, the Aleeno duvet cover and the Bijoux embroidered cushion. This paired with simple white accessories and sheets and light timber furniture has created a simply stunning bedroom that won’t overwhelm the senses – and at bedtime that is most important!

Mixing textures will always help provide interest when you are keeping your palette simple, especially if you are working within a smaller space. Linens, washed cotton, faux fur, waffle weave, velvets and chunky woollen knits are all very popular in linen at the moment so achieving real depth in your bedroom is really easy!

There has also been a real trend towards using natural fibres for bedding. The quality, feel and environmental benefits of natural products is really important to many, especially in a place like bed, where you spend a third of your life! The 100% linen range from MM Linen has an incredibly luxurious feel and range of fabrics – it also has the added benefit of warming in winter and cooling in summer. You could also opt for a crisp 100% cotton – like the Livorno range from Bianca Lorenne.

Remembering to keep it simple will ensure you create a very restful bedroom and selecting texture will add the luxury – which let’s be honest, a bedroom should have!
