bedding addict. Yep, 110%, flat out, I'm a slave to bedding! Nothing beats that feeling of slipping into new sheets, but equally, little equals the joy (well, perhaps chocolate and scented candles!) of seeing the difference a new set of bedding can make to a bedroom. It's often written that when decorating a bedroom you should start with the bed. In my decorating book, there's no start and finish. Rather, I like my bedroom to evolve and be flexible enough to change not just with the seasons but with my mood and taste, too. I think carefully about the the furniture, wall decorations and accessories, continually keeping in mind my bedding buying habit to ensure the canvas can take my eclectic tastes. For me, that's why these three spaces work: taking each of them in turn we can see they have similar background schemes - white or pale grey palettes dominates the spaces, yet they all have a distinct vibe of their own. And this is all thanks to their bedding. Playful stripes in sophisticated yet light-hearted hues add style to a country bedroom in scheme one; citrus brights criss-cross in wide checks to add fresh masculinity to the second; and a pretty floral print softens the industrial brickwork and exposed wood floorboards of the third. Which takes your vote?
