Pearl Lowe is renowned for her love of vintage interiors and textiles, and her Somerset home is a treasure trove of curated antiques and flea market finds, with a dash of rock ‘n’ roll rebellious energy thrown in for good measure.
We challenged Pearl to style one of the bedrooms in her home using Hillarys fabrics, and Pearl jumped at the chance to transform an unloved guest bedroom into an elegant and decadent boudoir. Pearl was confident too, that with their shared love of vintage style, daughter Daisy would deliver a stunning look in her own London bedroom.
Pearl’s perfect pink
If you thought that an all pink bedroom is just for little girls, then Pearl Lowe’s grown-up glamour puss design will make you think again. The trick is to find just the right shade of pink – Clarence Chemise is warmer than blush, softer than cerise and nowhere near neon. Add a dollop of warm vanilla and you’ve got all the ingredients for an interior fit to grace the cover of an F Scott Fitzgerald novel.
Pearl’s tips for a fabulous finish
Like all period properties, Pearl’s Georgian house can feel draughty, and so Pearl chose thermal linings to create an extra layer of insulation at the window. Not only do thermal linings keep the room feeling cosy, but Pearl also loves the extra fullness that a thicker lining creates, making the curtains feel even more luxurious.
Measuring and fitting included
Pearl’s Georgian home is built from local stone, and unlike modern builds, has wonky walls and ceilings that all add to its period charm. And luckily for Pearl, our expert advisors know just how to deal with the challenge of measuring and fitting curtains and blinds to every style of window, including Georgian casements. And I’m sure you’ll agree, the finish in Pearl’s bedroom is flawless.
