Summer is almost upon us and I really cannot wait for the warmer weather to be upon us. Spring is a great time to update and Spring clean your home and if you’re anything like me, a good excuse to change linen, cushions, throws etc.

So when Adairs asked me to style their latest range ‘Riviera’ in my own home I was super excited and I jumped at the chance. I selected my favourite pieces to style a relaxed master bedroom.


I wanted to create a relaxing, luxurious bedroom. A space where you can feel totally relaxed and calm. The soft palette and textured layers in the Riviera range allowed me to create a relaxing space.



I love adding layers to a bed. Start with the quilt cover and pillows and build from there. Adding cushions and throws and extra pillows to create a bed that you just want to dive into.  I love adding throws to a bed as they are so versatile in trans seasonal weather.  Even with the Summery balmy nights, a light throw may be all the cover you need at night.


I chose cushions that would tie in with the colours on the Una bedlinen. Choosing from the same colour palette. I also chose cushions with different fabrics and textures that add another element of interest and luxury to the whole room.


Soft lighting for bedside reading is also a must as well as having enough space on the bedside table for your coffee and favourite book.



I loved the pop of blue used against the soft palette of muted whites, creams and greys.  It really added an element of interest.  Blue reminds me of the sea, beach and having fun in the sun. The perfect colour combination for Summer styling.


Play around with artwork.  Hang it, lean it or even put in on your bedside table.  Each piece of artwork in my room ties the whole theme together.


Never underestimate the effectiveness of nature in your bedroom.  I love this Fiddle leaf and would you believe its faux.  Perfect for the not so green thumbs out there.


Texture, colour, natural light and layers are the elements used to style the Riviera range.
