Bedroom makeover – mellow and light

This weekend was a busy but fun one and I can’t quite believe that April is almost over, where is the year disappearing to?  I thought I’d share a visual from my online design service that I put together for a family who’ve just had their first child.

Crucially though this was something that they could pull together themselves (with a little help) in under a week.

One of the items they loved the most was the yellow chair. I personally love yellow but sometimes it gets overlooked in design, yet it can make such a great contrast. The bed linen is from John Lewis and the light from

    I love these combinations, we've recently been updating our bedroom with a similar kind of sanctuary feel for us parents. I hadn't thought of adding a few bold (but warm and sophisticated) colours to it. Thanks for the insight, the bedding is gorgeous too.
