Bedroom dreams come true

The Victoria.

Winter is time to add a cosy warmth to your interiors and no where is that more important than in the bedroom says Avelyn Miranda, the bedding proprietor at Harvey Norman Fountain Gate.

Velvet is a massive trend this season with rich blues, greens, burgundies and pinks featuring heavily on international catwalks and in design magazines and blogs.

You can easily incorporate the plush feel of velvet into a master bedroom, whether it’s on the bed itself, as a feature fabric on a quilt cover or bedroom chair or added via accessories like cushions and throws.

Avelyn said velvet brings a soft and warm texture when used as upholstery on a bed frame such as on Harvey Norman’s Boston.

“I just love the stunningly beautiful Australian made Boston bed, which is new to Harvey Norman,“ Avelyn said.

“The wide bedhead makes a fantastic centrepiece in any bedroom and makes a bold statement in luxury. It immediately invokes a feeling of old Hollywood glamour.“

The Boston can easily be styled with dark, dramatic floral Manchester and tactile throws.

Another timeless trend is provincial elegance.

Avelyn said this style captured the perfect balance between comfort and elegance and was typified by natural, light coloured timbers.

“Provincial style furniture features elegant form work such as turned legs and carved patterns, combined with upholstery and Manchester featuring pretty florals in light tones.

“It’s a look that provides a refined touch with a sense of history, while still remaining warm and welcoming.“

Avelyn encouraged people interested in capturing a provincial feel in their master bedroom to look at the Domenique bed with its curved and detailed form work and linen fabric headboard.

She said the the light coloured mahogany with mindi veneer was ideal for brightening up a space, making it a great choice for bedrooms with limited natural light, and also for the darker months.

“Another great provincial piece is the Australian made Victoria bed, which features a painted timber look and makes a statement in old-world charm.“

The white finish highlights each stepped edge, bevelled leg and tiered level with glorious brilliance.
