Bedroom Mood (The Yes, We Still Love Pink Edition)


I recently got two Compound Bedside Cabinets from Citta in the loveliest Sage Green
– but they also have a blush pink, and choosing one or the other was HARD!
This is what I might do to my bedroom if I’d chosen the Blush Pink…

This Nutmeg is brand new colour from AC Homestore‘s own in-house linen brand. A muted clay, its the perfect new neutral to complement – but not compete with – the blush pink bedsides.

I’d team the Nutmeg duvet and pillowcases with Pinstripe sheets and Euros. Also a new style from AC Homestore, it’s the super fine, subtle stripe that’s perfect for layering, to build a complete bedding set-up. Goes with everything, and adds some subtle texture, too.

To ground the space with depth and substance, a vintage Boujaad rug from Bohzali. These rugs are handcrafted by the Berber women of Morocco and can take a few months to a year to complete. I’d choose the Nava.

I love the soft pinky touch in this Barefoot limited edition print, by NZ photographer Brijana Cato, available at my own shop, Sunday Homestore. Another good option would be a Moroccan-inspired travel print, but I like the idea of keeping things a little softer.

Give me ANY excuse to get to use Le Sfere Wall Lamp from Good Form. An iconic of 20th Century design, these Italian-made lights were first designed in 1959, re-issued again in 2018. Good design doesn’t date. For this space, I’d choose the single wall lamps in the Champagne finish. (These also come in doubles, and in black)

I’m normally up later than hubby (plus I’m just greedy when it comes to designer lighting), so let’s also do a Carrie Lamp in Brass, by Danish design house Menu.

For a botanic element, I’d do foraged magnolia leaves, or maybe olive leaves if you want to go with something a little softer. And a philodendron in this clay-coloured Grow Plant Pot from Citta.

Walls and Floors? I’m glad you asked! Concrete flooring would be amazing, and I’d choose Aalto Paint Gallery White (a definite white-white, but warm-toned) for the walls.
