Bedrooms: where dreams come true
From sheets to storage, the newest trends for bedrooms
Swedish company Hästens pride themselves on making the best beds in the world – and given that they have been perfecting the science since 1852, they certainly know what makes a really good night’s sleep. They combine horsehair, cotton, wool and flax to give their beds a natural, built-in ventilation system completely free from allergens and allow them to move with your body, and while most mattresses are sewn with traditional straight seams, Hästens are quilted in a special diamond pattern with soft, flowing waves to follow the body’s natural movements in bed too.
So with all that thought having gone into the bed itself, it’s no surprise that the bedding and bedlinen they offer is of a very high quality. Their latest collection of beautiful Satin Pure sheets lets your skin breathe while you’re asleep and gives you the feeling of being enveloped in a downy soft cocoon – just right for drifting off into the land of nod for the full eight hours! The range has been designed by renowned interiors designer Ilse Crawford and will instantly give your bedroom that touch of casual chic that looks effortless but can in fact be really hard to get right.
Space to store
Effortless chic is a whole lot easier to achieve if you’ve got plenty of storage space in your bedroom so that it’s not full of clutter, and that’s where fitted furniture can come to the rescue. We love The Textura collection from Crown Imperial, with its elegant palette of 11 textured wood style finishes and a choice of drawer pull outs, shelving and hanging configurations to suit your own needs, not to mention four flexible wardrobe height options and more than 40 stylish handles, as well as a bespoke panel service.
Between the sheets
Somewhat more affordable, but still in the same casual chic tones of taupe, ivory and grey, is the Etta bedlinen range from good old M&S. It not only looks good, it’s treated with innovative StayNEW™ technology which means that it stays feeling and looking fresh even after plenty of turns through the wash.
