Jen's bedroom retreat
Lovely brief from a young Bristol family with small children and full time careers. Jen really needed a retreat to help her relax and recharge. The house already has a calm, minimal décor, but like a lot of busy Mum's, Jen's own space was sadly neglected. I also remodelled the room for improved storage and added a little luxury with a dressing table.
When Jen and I discussed potential décor it was obvious to tie into the existing Scandi style scheme. Jen liked midnight blue and clean, fresh lines. Dark blue is excellent to aid concentration, but as the vibe needed to be relaxing, I provided an alternative of soft pink and grey. I know, I know, a TV in the bedroom is not supposed to be relaxing, but Jen loves watching old movies to help her relax!
“I love interiors and DIY but with a full time job, 2 lovely kids and a house to run I don't have the time or energy! We are happy with the downstairs decor, I love minimal so didn't want anything too different or dramatic. Very happy to have found Annie who is not your usual interior designer, as she took time and trouble to get know us as a family and quickly got our bedroom wasn't the refuge of calm we all need now and again! I love the new decor scheme and really excited we now have more storage with everything in its place. I love the little dressing table by the window and the alternative decor option was an unexpected bonus. I thoroughly recommend Annie!
