Pitch Black by Farrow & Ball. I was amazed at how the addition of black made the space feel so much bigger, breaking it up and adding visual height and interest. I'd highly recommend this colour for a bedroom - so cosy! The inspiration for the scheme came from a papier mache Zebra head that I bought from Anthropologie. It reminded me of a trip to Kenya where I camped out in the Masai Mara many years ago and so I went with it. From there, I started to layer the scheme with accent colours and lashings of comforting texture. I echoed the geometric shapes of my Aperture pendant shade in the tribal-style bedspread from Urban Outfitters. Then, I struck lucky around the time that I deciding the space needed another 'anchor' colour to balance the black. IKEA had just released a limited edition Billy bookcase in yellow and I couldn't believe my luck; it was the perfect piece to pull together the hues from the bedspread and art upon the walls. Plus, yellow and black are one super sexy colour combo. I styled up the space with both store bought and handmade cushions, before finally adding a dash of typographical style in the form of a paper bag from Paris concept store, Merci. So, tell me, what do you think, friends?!
