1. The zen bedroom

Bedrooms are the ideal zen space, a haven of peace with a restful environment.

Think neutrals, off-whites and cream, texture from linens or brocades to let your mind relax, no bright colours. The soft lines of long flowing curtains add to the sense of calm and serenity making them ideal for quiet bedrooms.

2. The boutique bedroom

Contemporary boutique hotels are leading the way when it comes to creating bedrooms which feel inviting and sophisticated.

The best boutique bedrooms feature floor sweeping full-length curtains in sumptuous fabrics so think faux silk, velvet, wool and damask, in dark, dramatic shades.

 

Discover velvets

3. The Scandi bedroom

Simplicity is the key to a successful Scandinavian-style, where neutral shades marry with washed wood tones and handcrafted furnishings.

Choose curtains which use traditional printing and dyeing techniques to create simple geometric or folksy floral designs, and team them with blackout blinds so you can keep the look, but also get a good nights' sleep.

4. The Boho bedroom

Channel your inner free-spirit with a bohemian-inspired bedroom that mixes vibrant colours and global styles to create a decadent and flamboyant feel.

When you are buying curtains, choose a fabric which is timeless and then accessorise around it. Our Livingetc collection of curtains and Roman blinds combines ikat prints, expressive mark-making and tessellating patterns for a global-inspired, vintage Ibiza vibe.
