Bedroom sanctuary

Safari Fusion blog | Bedroom sanctuary | A beautiful bedroom makeover in calming blues and greens by Tadah Design
We love seeing great room makeovers and this one is a real treat. Sydney Interior Decorator, Romain Dossou of Tadah Design shared these beautiful images of his recent work with us.

This bedroom sanctuary was created using a colour palate of greens and blues mixed with neutrals.
The green grey shade used on the walls [Porters Paints Mist] whilst soft and calming, also highlights the striking architectural features of this period style home.

A focal point above the bed was created with two of our Bamileke Feather Headdresses [Medium and Small White], handcrafted art that is also textual; whilst added touches of cosy throws, glass candles and flowers finish this restful sanctuary.

Occasional chair, bedside table and set of three candles on the mantle all from Satara, accent ikat navy cushion on the bed from Bandhini.

As you know here at Safari Fusion we are not colour shy and are a big fan of adding pops of colour with beautifully crafted art and craft pieces.

This week the above image caught my eye as it demonstrates this perfectly, with a ceramic vase in yellow and our Telephone Wire Stripe Bowl in citron.

Haymes + Safari Fusion

Safari Fusion blog | Haymes + Safari Fusion | The Colour Library Conscious palette - soft, light and airy pinks, blues and greys with Safari Fusion's creamy white Bamileke Feather Headdress [Juju hat]
Back in February we were fortunate to assist Haymes Paint with some of our beautiful Bamileke Feather Headdresses for their 2016 colour forecast 'The Haymes Colour Library'.

Created to start conversations about colour and design based on personal interest and style, this inaugural launch includes seven volumes: Curate, Collaborate, Timeless, Consider, Form, Conscious and Experience.

Our soft and textual feather headdresses supplemented the colours of the Conscious palette, soft, light and airy with a feminine feel. A space where you can separate from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the household to somewhere more intimate and personal, to recharge and unwind in a palette of beautiful dusty pinks and blues teamed with warm grey tones.

Images 1 and 2 feature our standard size White Bamileke Feather Headdress with hand-stenciled floor in Haymes Gloomy Sky and Cardamon Pod and pink walls in Veronese Peach. Images 3 and 4 feature our Small and Medium White Bamileke Feather Headdresses on a blue wall in Condare.
