The styling in our homes ebbs and flows with our moods, feelings and the seasons. We love nothing more than playing around with dressing some of our favourite pieces to reflect different looks and rooms.
We bought a pair of G-Plan bedside tables at the Midcentury Modern Fair in Dulwich in March and they’ve been in Denise’s master bedroom since then. G-Plan has had such a miraculous revival of late, coming back from the depths of un-cool to be loved and sought after yet again.
We wanted to have a play around with them as the basis of three different looks. Take a look and let us know which you prefer, we both have different favourites!
LOOK 1 – CLASSIC WHITE SOPHISTICATION
With this look we wanted to let the classic design of the G-Plan bedside tables speak for themselves and we chose simple white accessories that wouldn’t distract from the main attraction!
We used a simple white lamp, vase and a pop of yellow flowers to pick up the mustard yellow cushions on the bed. The large clock gives the whole look some focus and a feeling of Scandi-chic.
LOOK 2 – GROWNUP VINTAGE
The fringed lampshade and the wood on wood give the whole look a warm feeling. The lampshade was handmade in Paris with antique fabric and beads.
The blue Moroccan trinket box highlights the blue, velvet cushions and combined with the cement box cactus looks finished and grownup.
Look 3 – UNASHAMEDLY PRETTY IN PINK
This dusty pink lamp is a piece of art all on its own – original 1970s and the glass is blown all as one to form a complete lamp base and shade. We spotted this at the Bath Decorative Fair and couldn’t stop looking at it, it’s so beautiful.
The little pink vase was picked up from Sunbury Antiques Market and all of the books are things that inspire us – particularly Atlanta Bartlett’s ‘At Home With White’, we love the way she mixes timeworn pieces against a clean and fresh backdrop.
