Can you tell us how this room came together?
This is my daughters' shared bedroom, and it's small but with lovely high ceilings. I wanted to create a magical space for them, overgrown with wildflowers and sprawling vines which climbed the ceilings as well as the walls. I had this room in mind when creating my Secret Garden Wallpaper My husband Alfred Newall's twin Bobbin Beds fit perfectly in the space, and I just needed to work out how to canopy them on the slanted ceiling! Two brass poles was all it took, along with some ingenious work by Sussex Upholstery. I'm so pleased with how it turned out.
Do you have any tips for layering pattern and colour?
Don't overthink it and just try things which you love alongside one another - they usually work! I like rooms which feel as though they have evolved with time, so have a mismatched feel. Lampshades and cushions are the perfect things to experiment with - use different varieties of scale, colour and pattern.
