Interior designer Charlotte Boundy has brought warmth and colour to her guest bedroom with clever use of pattern and colour. 

Charlotte admits in the current issue of House and Garden magazine that the decoration of the whole house started from the chocolate box of a guest bedroom, where she papered the walls in a pretty floral paper – ‘Bengali’ by Braquenié from Pierre Frey. The cosy effect was intensified with a neat red 'Lancaster' trim from Samuel and Sons.

Charlotte used our Claret Ditsy Pique quilt on the bed to add a striking pop of deep red and a pretty floral pattern to echo that of the walls. The headboard was covered in a sumptous velvet in colour madder by Rose Uniacke. A George III chest of drawers doubles as a bedside table.

The woodwork in the spare bedroom is painted in ‘Lute’ by Edward Bulmer, which picks up the ground colour of the wallpaper nicely. ‘Manston’ wall sconces from Dowsing & Reynolds frame the bed, with ‘Papyrus’ shades from Robert Kime.

A little desk sits in the corner, alongside curtains made up from Helen Blanche’s ‘Moire Stripe’ in plum.
