Because there’s nothing more inviting at the end of the day than a beautiful bed.

Every so often, I find myself re-evaluating the basics of my home. The things we use every day should bring comfort and joy to our lives, and so they benefit from an occasional refresh. 

Your bed is definitely one such thing. The perfect combination of sheets, throws and cushions will not only be a welcoming sight every time you enter your bedroom, but they’ll help set the tone for your space, whether you want it to be a relaxing retreat or have a playful mood.

So whether you feel like investing in new sheets or simply want to spruce things up with some new cushions, here are seven beautiful bedrooms to inspire you, and ideas for how to recreate each look.

Country cool

Relaxed and cheerful

Linen cushions in organic shades will complement anything, even a bright, pattern-clashing quilt.

Clean and bright

HAY

Simple lines and block colours create a fresh feeling: perfect for those who like to keep things simple.
