From country retreats to coastal sanctuaries, we’ve partnered with award-winning design studio SHH to reveal how to incorporate the Lilies bed into three different bedroom schemes. The SHH Studio has helped us to explore the versatility of our bed design with Dame Zandra Rhodes. Recognised for her signature aesthetic, the Lilies in ‘Spring Awakening’ was originally photographed in Zandra’s rainbow penthouse in central London. However, Zandra wanted to ensure that the design and colourways of the Lilies collection could work beautifully within any bedroom scheme.
Using the elegant arc of lilies as inspiration, the SHH Studio has created three schemes that convey a different mood and design approach. We talk to Susie McLaren, Creative Head of Residential at SHH in London and Internationally, about her love for Zandra’s design and how to create three different schemes with the Lilies bed as the focal point.
“Everything we do at the SHH Studio begins with our client. We have taken inspiration from existing and recent real projects and scenarios to re-imagine these three bedrooms.”
A master bedroom with spectacular views of the sea and direct access to the beach. Cool, fresh and light colours. Lots of white and neutrals draw inspiration from the local landscape and the clear blue tones of the Mediterranean sky and sea. A sanctuary where one can escape and relax in total comfort.
We wanted to make the Lilies in ‘Blue Dreamscape’ the hero of the room, as the colourway perfectly picks up the white, ivory and blue tones. The fluidity and hand-sketched element of the design guided the furniture selection. Natural materials, weaves and artisan aspects complement the bed. Helping us to achieve the relaxed feel that we are aiming for.
The walls are softly painted in Pure & Original lime-based paint to give depth and a soft powdery appearance often found in historical buildings.
We wanted the bed design to take centre stage in the room. However, it is important for the rest of the furniture to be interesting and lively. Highlights include the William Yeoward bedside cabinets with their woven pattern carved wood and a beautiful unique shell chest of drawers from Nicholas Haslam. The Justin van Breda rattan chair and Nicholas Haslam chandelier made of natural fine abaca rope both add interest to the room. The O&A London rug by Riviere Rugs comfortably nests under and around the bed, drawing influence from the sea, creating an ombre effect shading from dark to light. Giving a gentle reminder that this is a place to relax.
The bed is layered with bespoke bed linen. Developed with Savoir as part of their bespoke bed linen service we’ve incorporated 100% pure linen. The scalloped trim cotton embroidery in a desaturated blue tone complements the overall scheme.
A glamorous and bold bedroom with elements of the unexpected. A brave colour palette with warm rich tones. A room that feels wonderful, warm and welcoming all year.
Lilies in ‘Wonderland” is the perfect statement piece that defines this room. The strong contrasting colour palette of warm rich burgundy, vibrant pink and apricot shades helps build a warm and rich scheme.
We’ve highlighted the golden, apricot colours in the headboard with the colour of the walls and curtains. The plum blossom de Gournay wallcovering with its white, pink and burgundy flowers adds to the palette and the glamorous tone.
Curved shapes and details create a feminine style throughout. The Kelly Wearstler pendant light, the Interlude Darcy Chair and the cherry blossom wallpaper pattern all rest within the square and rectangular frame of the headboard along with the Mark Asplin Whiteley bedside tables.
To complete the scheme we have chosen a bespoke 100% cotton sateen bed linen in a soft pink, apricot tone with a contrast inset border.
A bedroom suite with large windows overlooking the rose garden in a beautiful period property. Mixing patterns and light colours to create an English country aesthetic. Working with the classic proportions, period and history of the house whilst injecting elements of fun.
Taking references from the rose garden we thought the Lilies in “Spring Awakening” would be the perfect starting point for this scheme.
A feminine room that mixes traditional furniture with shapes and colours inspired by the lilies theme and the garden. The headboard sits majestically against the traditional half panelling, painted a soft green and complemented by the Soane wallpaper above.
Classic furniture is given a contemporary twist with a lively use of colour. The soft furnishings selected with intricate hand-printed patterns, work beautifully with the headboard and wallpaper design. The room exudes a very relaxed English country style which features a mix of pattern, proportion, colour and comfort.
The overall scheme is complemented by bespoke bed linen. A 100% cotton sateen in a feminine blush tone with an inset border and embroidered scallop pattern.
From coastal sanctuaries to historic country homes, the three schemes created by SHH Interiors reveal the true versatility of the Lilies design. The carefully curated colourways created by Zandra can work with any bedroom scheme, from the master suite to a child’s bedroom. Discover our collaboration with Dame Zandra Rhodes on our design page.
