Bedroom Gymnastics: An Exercise In Style

Posted on Feb 23, 2017 by

A vintage leather gym mat was the starting point for this smart bedroom arrangement in a warehouse conversion. Hanging, it becomes a sizeable headboard beneath the enormous original windows and offsets the dark exposed brickwork. A palette of dusky pinks and neutral shades softens the industrial space, while the juxtaposition of various textures, including soft woven leather, sheepskin, luxe velvet and linen, creates an inviting environment for early nights and morning lie-ins. This is an exercise in style.
