Create your perfect luxury bedroom sanctuary with The Heritage Wardrobe Company

The bedroom should be a place of calm. Not just a room for sleeping but your very own luxurious sanctuary of serenity where you can relax, unwind and enjoy a moment of repose. Whatever your style, your bedroom should provide a sense of peace, tranquility and harmony. For this blog, we caught up with expert designers and creators of bespoke wardrobe solutions, The Heritage Wardrobe Company to discuss all the elements you should consider when planning your perfect luxury bedroom scheme.

So, where do you start? Begin as we all do with your dream Pinterest board, filled with inspiration and your chosen colour palette as well as ideas for storage and layout. The next thing you need to consider is how you will be using your bedroom. From arrangement and lighting to how certain colours will work in the room, to create your perfect luxury space you must consider every element from top to bottom, both aesthetically and practically.

Wardrobes & Storage

One of the most important parts of achieving the ultimate luxury bedroom scheme is ensuring your wardrobe is catered to you, your lifestyle and most of all, your belongings. A true investment piece, a fitted wardrobe is definitely something you don’t want to cut corners on, particularly when it comes to the layout, interior and the quality. Invest in a high quality, bespoke wardrobe and you are guaranteed to be well on your way to creating a beautifully organised and consequentially relaxing bedroom.

A lot goes in to planning a tailor-made wardrobe, so your next step should be speaking to an expert who can help you turn your luxury wardrobe dreams into a reality. The Heritage Wardrobe Company works closely with every customer each step of the way. From bespoke internal storage spaces to customised layouts and lighting, a specially-made wardrobe will lay the foundations for your ideal luxurious bedroom space.

Luxury Linens & Accessories

It’s a fact – most of your time in the bedroom will be spent in your bed and most would agree that nothing beats sinking into a freshly made bed of luxuriously crisp white bed linen. It goes without saying that the linen you choose will have a direct impact on how well you sleep and therefore how relaxed you will feel.

With each piece available in a thread count of 200 or higher, Christy’s luxury bed linen collections will provide you with a gorgeously soft, yet beautifully crisp look and feel, helping you to drift off into a peaceful night’s sleep. For those that favour traditional design, Christy’s Highgate and Picot collections offer an exquisitely simple yet opulent option for your master bed, whilst the equally luxurious Corinth, Deco and Enigma collections will add a subtle hint of pattern and texture to your bedroom scheme.

Finishing Touches

Sometimes it’s the finishing touches and smallest details that make all the difference when it comes to bedroom design. This is where you can bring some interest, personality and character into your scheme. From flowers and greenery to scented candles and the fretwork detailing on your wardrobe doors, there are a number of accents you can incorporate into the bedroom to create your dream luxury sanctuary. Introduce a warm and inviting atmosphere by layering neutral bed linen with textures and pops of colour. Christy’s collection of accessories is filled with chunky knit throws and scatter cushions in a range of rich and vibrant colours that will add a hint of luxury and romance to your bedroom. To achieve a perfectly coordinated scheme, work with a complementary palette throughout your room, from the paint on your walls to the fabrics on your soft furnishings. This will instantly create a feeling of harmony and relaxation.

Q+A with Soozi and Ella-Maria Danson

We’re very proud to have Northern mother and daughter duo Soozi and Ella-Maria from the amazing interiors Instagram accounts @soozidanson and @_dansoninthestreet_ to give an insight into their style from their fondest decor memories to top tips for renovating. Team Christy met Soozi and Ella at a No House Rules interiors event after lusting of their home on Instagram for many months. Get yourself a cup of your favourite drink and take five getting to know both ladies.

What is your perfect night in?

The answer to this is unanimous! A large glass of G+T, a takeaway from our local Indian restaurant, PJ’s, dressing gowns and slippers accompanied by a binge watch of the latest TV police drama!

What inspired you to start blogging? Why interiors specifically?

Soozi: My blog, The Patterned Palace, was really a natural progression for me after having built up my following on my Instagram account @soozidanson over the last 18 months or so. I started posting pictures of my interior and received such incredible feedback and encouragement from people who loved my style, that I am now making a career out of it! I’m really enjoying working with brands and sharing my love of pattern and colour with whomever wishes to see it!

How would you describe your style in three words?

Funnily enough despite the 26 year age gap our style is very much the same. Eclectic, pattern-clashing and colorful and we would say this runs in both our interiors and wardrobe style choices!

What would be your ‘top tips’ to someone who is currently renovating?

Soozi:  If it’s an option I would highly recommend living in a space before making any drastic design decisions. I don’t think you really know how you will use a space until you have lived in it and this can affect all sorts of things when renovating your home.

What is your favourite room to decorate in the household and why?

Definitely bedrooms! You can go a bit wild in there with patterns, colours and textures and really show the occupants personality!

What makes the perfect bed in your eyes?

Ella: Fresh bedding – you can’t beat it, a chunky cosy throw and of course as many pattern clashing scatter cushions as you can fit on the bed without it looking ridiculous haha!

When purchasing bed linen, what key element do you specifically consider before purchasing?

Soozi: This depends on who I’m buying for. When it comes to my son he is a bed linen connoisseur, it has to be super soft & luxurious with the highest  thread count available! For me it’s all about the design. So something eye catching that fits in well with my chosen colour scheme & design. As head housekeeper, I also insist on quality that can stand the test of time!

What is your favourite mummy-daughter activity?

We are particularly partial to an IKEA trip! I mean what could be better than interior design and meatballs all under one roof!

What is your fondest memory of re-decorating your house?

Ella: Definitely when we re-decorated my en-suite bathroom. It was our first proper project together, it was amazing how the wallpaper alone completely transformed the space. Even though the wallpaper is dark & heavily patterned we decided to paste it on all the walls and it has surprisingly made the bathroom look much bigger. We spent two days wallpapering and re-styling the room whilst listening to musicals full blast! It was perfect!

What was the biggest challenge you faced when re-decorating and how did you over-come this?

Soozi: The biggest challenge is probably cost for me. Though my head is constantly brimming with new design ideas, the budget is unfortunately often a little tight. I have managed to get around this by shopping around to get the best deals available when buying wallpaper, soft furnishings, artwork etc, a lot of which I have found from small businesses I’ve discovered on instagram. I also save money by doing a lot of the work myself! I’m now a dab hand at painting and decorating & sometimes feel I may have missed my vocation in life! Haha!

Sometimes having the same décor for a while can become slightly mundane. What small changes would you suggest are good small changes to make that will keep your bedroom and bathroom fresh and contemporary over the course of the year?

Soozi: Changing up simple things such as swapping your towels or cushions is a great way to change the feel of a room. Also having a shuffle around on gallery walls and shelfies is an easy, cost effective way to breath new life into a space. Just moving prints around or adding in plates or new colours can have an instant impact.

What would you say makes a house a home?

Family. Home is wherever your family is and the dogs of course! The sheer joy on the faces of our two cairnoodles, Mini & Elvis, every time we walk in through the front door  is such a perfect welcome and you know then ‘Yes,I’m home!’.

What is your favourite colour pairing? Why?

At the moment we are both huge fans of a bit of Monochrome. A bold black & white pattern looks great alongside most other colours & can look really effective in any room.

May we cheekily ask what is your favourite Christy product and why?

Soozi: I love the Christy towels that we have in Ella’s bathroom, they go perfectly with the crazy underwater theme we have going on it there. I’m currently planning a whole new master suite revamp so may have some new favourites from Christy soon!

Ella: I am a massive fan of the Chunky Knit throws – I love anything comfy and cosy but that also looks bang on trend.. I think the dusky pink one would look amazing in my bedroom actually… hint hint Soozi!

Make sure you are following both ladies on Instagram, you can find Soozi here and Ella here.

AW18 Photoshoot: Behind the Scenes

Sunshine beams through the open glass window panes, which replace the standard brick walls found in a home, of the location space. The modern building is open-plan with a design aesthetic that is an edgy take on Scandinavian design. Deep mahogany wooden feature walls, paired with dark navy walls, create a cosy yet modern atmosphere. A perfect fit for a winter collection.

Shoot days are full of excitement, anticipation and movement. It is an atmosphere that we thrive in, a dynamic setting which gets the creative ideas flowing and adrenaline pumping.

Boxes are unpacked. Product is steamed and ironed. The bed is dressed. Lighting is set. Camera is in position. It is time to call Action!

Our NEW AW18 range draws from a wonderful array of inspiration. Featuring beautiful rust tones, and icy silver hues, this new collection creates a warm wintery feel in the home effortlessly.

We love the idea of layering up. Creating a space which you can snuggle up in and enjoy Christmas films and hot cocoa. Combining knitted, cotton and cashmere textures, and collaborating multiple tones, it is easy to create a Winter retreat. Thus, our winter photoshoot inspiration.

For this photoshoot we wanted to incorporate as much warmth as possible – there is no better feeling then getting into a warm bed when there is ice greeting the grass overnight! Our winter warmers come in the form of knitted throws the year. Our Agnes throw in Rust, and our Oslo throw in Ecru, embrace autumnal hues and high quality materials.

Silver is our colour of the season. The beautiful icy tones of our 300TC Sateen Stripe bed linen, coordinated with our premium 900TC Sateen Plain Dye, create a bedroom fit for a Winter Queen. Against the warm mahogony wall, paired with brass and concrete décor, the bed linen sings and instantly becomes the main focus of your bedroom – rightly so.

To add a pop of colour, we decided to incorporate our luxurious Jaipur Throw in Magenta. A simple way to lift the intricate detail.

Don’t just take our word for it though, look at how cosy our beautiful model Lara looks inside this bed of dreams!
