If I was to compare what I got excited about in my early 20s compared to my 30s, the list would differ rather drastically. I won’t go into my 20s, but my 30s?
Here we go: linen, both bed and tabletop; coffee, I love a decaf macadamia nut cappuccino – so fussy, I know but try macca milk and you’ll be hooked; exercise – I recently started Pilates classes at Bodylove Studio in Sydney’s Woollahra; books, particularly our new coffee table book GRACE MOTHERS Letters To Our Children; travel, although with kids it’s not quite as easy as it once was; and finally, bedheads.
As my love of interiors has grown, bedheads are something I get particularly excited by. They’re the statement piece of a room and the right one will completely transform your space. We’ve just changed from a plain white bedhead to a bright patterned one and it has completely lifted the space (even my husband was excited).
I recently visited GRACE Collective member Georgie Leckey’s new Heatherly Design showroom. It’s here that you can create your dream bedhead.
“Heatherly Design came to be 11 years ago, after having established an interior decorating business, I realised there was a lack of quality upholstered bedheads in the market to choose from for my clients. So I set out to create three bedhead designs and a range of fabrics that could be offered via a simple website,” explains Leckey.
If the concept of selecting a bedhead shape and choosing a fabric colour or print seems slightly overwhelming, don’t let that stop you. The entire process on the Heatherly Design website is simple to navigate and provides a wealth of inspiration in the form of different styles, shapes and fabrics to suit every mood, interior style and budget.
“In consulting with our clients, some of the first questions we ask are velvet or linen, buttoned or panelled, sleek and wide or high for effect, what colours appeal? Once these questions are answered we start to form a design brief in moving forward,” she says. “It’s all about creating a space that feels like a personal sanctuary, richly decorated and full of things close to your heart. A bedhead is always a wonderful edition to add that final layer of comfort and finishing touch to the bedroom.”
So here it is: your final layer of comfort. We are giving away this heavenly Heatherly Design Stella bedhead which has been covered in a spectacular Christopher Farr fabric.
It is the biggest giveaway we’ve ever done. Ok I’ll get to the point…
