This is the bedroom of the penthouse show suite of the Marketing Pavilion at Greenwich Peninsula, the pilot project of the ELLE Decoration Style Consultancy. A place to dream, where the design is in the details. Sigh, relax and let your worries ebb away in this dreamy sleepscape of pale pinks, greys, blues and greens; the colours of calm and rest.
The centrepiece of the room is, of course, the bed: the ‘Papilio’, flanked by a pair of ‘AWA’ white Cristalplant bedside tables, all by Naoto Fukasawa for B&B Italia. But a bed is nothing without its dressing, so we mixed prints, patterns and plains in an indulgent selection of pure linen, wool and gossamer-fine cotton bedlinens, pillowcases and throws, all from Society Limonta. The bed sits on a grey ‘Frame’ silk/bamboo rug from Poliform; overhead hangs the ‘Fulcrum’ brass chandelier by Lee Broom. The walls are papered in Anaglypta’s ‘Turner Tile’ wallpaper, painted in ‘Pidgeon’ Estate Emulsion from Farrow & Ball.
Opposite the bed sits a ‘Gran Repos’ lounge chair and ottoman, designed by Antonio Citterio, and a solid walnut ‘Eames’ stool, designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1960, both from Vitra. Behind them stands the elegant ‘F1’ floor lamp by Michael Anastassiades for Flos, and everything sits on a ‘Firuzabad’ wool/silk rug in ‘Aluminio’ from the ‘Memories’ collection by Isabella Sodi for Golran. A black lacquered five-drawer console unit from Orchid is accessorised with brass pots and a tray from Tiipoi, plus a vintage bowl from Heath Ceramics. The side wall is covered in Anaglypta’s ‘Turner Tile’ paper, painted in ‘Peignoir’ Estate Emulsion from Farrow & Ball, while the rear wall is finished with Cole & Son’s antique-style mirror-effect ‘Albemarle’ wallpaper. The wallpaper is then echoed in a collage of brass-framed antiqued mirrors from Rupert Bevan. The cushion cover and throw are from Society Limonta.
