• You snooze, you lose?

    I’ll admit to something: this morning, I really, really didn’t want to leave my bed. Who can blame me though – cold, rainy, being crammed on the tube on the way to work – it’s a good job I get to browse through lots of lovely rooms for a sizeable chunk of the day or I would be in a permanently bad mood when I get into the office! When I’m squeezed into a carriage on the Northern line and am pining for my bed, I do tend to browse bedrooms over my coffee when I actually get into the office.

    Dark and mysterious - I love it!

    I think if I was lucky enough to have a bedroom like this, I would find it even harder to leave it on days like today. Black or nearly black walls are hard to pull off, especially with dark gloss furniture, but this four poster number pulls it off thanks to the crisp white bedding and lovely textures in the carpet, rug and luxe fur throw. I think you could only really make this work in a room with lots of light, otherwise that anglepoise might result in a hideously large electricity bill, but wouldn’t I love to wake up in this every day….

    What do you think – beautiful boudoir or too dark and dreary? Let me know in the comments!

      The room is dark and mysterious…which is rare but I love it either way! Especially the tufted headboard and bench!

      It looks gorgeous. Very sexy. I can imagine this as a set on something like The Vampire Diaries!

        Definitely! Now you come to mention it, it does look like the kind of room that a tall dark and handsome vamp would hang out….

      Black is a really brave colour to use in the bedroom. This is a really sophisticated and elegant way to do it.

      Whilst it is a very dark room, I find it strangely inviting.

      I love black and since I painted my living room in this color I love changing the decoration around playing with he elements.
