The fastest way to update a bedroom is to change your duvet and throw pillows, however, if you do introduce a change of colour and pattern, remember you could change the overall feeling of the room. I purposely wanted to take my bedroom from coastal to country and have been seeking some black and white inspiration.

If I was to ask you to design a room using natures colours, I wonder what you would choose. For me, I look at the deep blue of the ocean or the gentler blue of a winter sky. Varying shades of autumn leaves, from the palest orange to a more vivid, burnt orange. Deep red leaves fading to soft pink and of course touches of green. All the bedrooms I have chosen today reflect colours of nature but maybe not the ones you would expect.

In New Zealand, it is the second official week of winter, however, today felt like a mid-summers day. Abandoning my winter woollies for a T-shirt and trainers, Poppy and I set out this morning for a long walk along the coast. Two hours later I found myself back at home and hopped on the computer to find something nice to share with you, quickly discovering this cute fisherman's cottage, it seemed appropriate on such a lovely day.
