The Style: Tranquil Retreat

Everyone likes to feel calm when they walk into their bedroom and attaining the right style for your home is the key ingredient to creating that ambiance you desire. The White Ivory Collection from Willis and Gambier could be a potential option. With its sophisticated mellow tones and soft curves, it provides an overall stunning collection for your home. It boasts inspiration from the designs of the 18th century French furniture, is made from solid birch and birch veneers and boasts a hand-painted, lacquered finish.

Style: A Classical Chesterfield

Wayne Clarke, creative director at And So To Bed in Chelmsford, believes the bedroom should be a relaxing haven for everyone. Wayne explains: ‘I feel the bedroom is the most important room in the house and for those who like to make a statement, the white leather Bonaparte is an ideal choice. It is a grand, deep-buttoned upholstered socle bed inspired by the classic Victorian Chesterfield design, which features luxurious hand-threaded buttons and a decorative scroll at the head of the bed. It comes in a variety of colours and fabrics to suit your requirements. For more information on this product, contact And So To Bed on 01245 349 720 or alternately visit
