Home Inspiration: Bedrooms

5 April 2017

In my recent interview with Molly from Secret Linen Store we discussed bedrooms, lie-ins and ideal midnight feasts! It got me inspired to look at beautiful bedrooms and how to balance restfulness and still add your personality.  In my own home I like to mix natural materials and lots of colour!

Have at look at my Pinterest board For Home for more.

Natural Wood I love natural materials and there is something so warming about exposed wood grain in particular. Plywood is such versatile material and so strong you could even build a little hideaway like this Brooklyn loft!

Pattern clash and mixing colours I’m inspired by patterns I find in my travels and  use lots of colour in my work. I really think there’s no rules when it come to mixing and matching. There’s something so special about the combinations of colours in a patchwork quilt.

Donna Wilson for Secret Linen Store

3 April 2017

We have been working very closely with Secret Linen Store to produce a collection of luxurious bedding. I’m so happy to reveal these 3 new designs based on my favourite patterns.

Introducing ‘Blah Blah’ and ‘Scandi’ in duvet sizes to fit all beds and traditional housewife style pillows. The colours have been adapted in a restful palette which feels contemporary and fresh. ‘Menagerie’ is catered for kids so is available as a single and double bed set. The inner child in me would happily have it for my own bed!

The Secret Linen Store is an online store, run by sisters Molly and Harriet. It’s been a delight working with them. They design and produce bed linen using the finest quality cotton yarns with superior thread counts, directly sourced from the best factories in Portugal.

The bed linen will be available to buy exclusively from both Secret Linen Store and the Donna Wilson website from Monday 3rd April 2017.

 

Donna Wilson Collaboration for Secret Linen Store, Scandi Bed Linen, Landscape, double duvet £49, pillowcase £15

Scandi is inspired by Swedish folk art and my travels around Europe and Iceland.

With Menagerie, I wanted to create something really playful and adventurous with odd animals and birds hiding in the trees.
