I have always been inclined to do a big autumn cleaning when the brisk weather rolls in & the days get shorter, getting ready for months of hunkering down at home. Stews & soups start sounding good again, & knitting looks very appealing in that projects set aside at the end of spring suddenly re-capture my imagination.

This serene bedroom feels like a breath of fresh air to me: the whitewashed walls bisected by a wooden beam; the rough pallet bed platform; the earthy linen greys, blues, browns & dusky greens; the raw elements paired with the more refined lines of the chair & small group of tables; all creating a cozy cocoon for mornings of sipping coffee & reading in bed... or afternoons, for that matter!

Create this soothing sanctuary with a milk paint wash on the walls, raw linens tinted with natural, plant-based dyes, a re-purposed shipping crate as a bed platform, the thoughtful & elegant design of a NAP chair by Fritz Hansen, & a lovely rewired vintage lamp, & sleep soundly...
