Ease yourself out of the winter blues with this stunning collection or take as inspiration for the perfect Mother's Day gift. Today we're looking at three of Clarissa Hulse's collections and how you can incorporate this look into your home. For every woman the bedroom is a place to relax and unwind after a busy day, Clarissa has created a beautiful bed linen collection so what better room to focus our Mother's Day post than the boudoir.
Clarissa's Kew Kingfisher collection features a striking rich blue turquoise base with a sultry grey leaf design, inspired by the beautiful blue of a Kingfisher bird this look is perfect for a Spring bedroom and can be taken straight through to Summer. Teals and turquoises are going to be big this year so feminise the look with classy silver and smoke greys, enhance the sultry grey detail with chrome or nickel finishes. This look is great for Mother's Day but can also be toned down with industrial furniture for a more unisex look.
Clarissa's patchwork collection is bang on trend this season, we're seeing a combination of patchwork and panelled designs around at the moment. Her Klimt Patchwork collection is perfect for brightening a dull bedroom, featuring an array of hot pinks and reds, teals and turquoises and even a touch of Turmeric gold, this range can be easily complimented with any of the colours featured. Pick a colour from the design and keep to that hue, for Mothers Day we've pulled out the hot pink and purples in the Klimt design. The more vibrant the better with this look so go all out , choose a stunning crystal chandelier but go for a contemporary colour such as our Plum Marie Therese. Accessorize with layers of hot pink throws and cushions but be sure to keep the botanical theme alive with leafy details and floral ornaments such as our Demetrius and Trendyleaf Cushion collection. Red plants such as orchids are a perfect Mother's Day gift to coincide with this look.
For a more glamorous boudoir choose a gold theme. Clarissa's Kew Turmeric bed linen range is inspired by the natural gold colour of Turmeric. From the ginger family, Turmeric is a tropical plant native to the tropical state of Tamil Nadu in India. Turmeric powder is used as a dye for clothing and food, it's appearance is a rich yellowy gold tone. This range features a Turmeric gold base with a leafy grey detail. Go all out with an exotic gold look for your room by adding gold, champagne and brass finishes. Ornate and distressed cream and gold finished will also work for a more subtle look.
