Styling a Cali vibe bedroom with Habitat.

My bedroom has had a Summer refresh, inspired by the current blue skies and warm air.

I’ve decided to style it with a Californian vibe.

I recently visited Habitat, and fell in love with their new bedroom collection. Furthermore, I’ve decided to use a few curated pieces from this collection to style my bedroom. Habitat To me, the Cali vibe is a light and bright space with a relaxed feel, filled with green plants and hints of mid century modern.

Here’s my take on Cali vibe with added colour.

I’ve picked Habitat’s Coates bed linen with multi coloured stripes, because its blue stripes matches the colour of my headboard. However, it’s super soft to sleep in too.

To stop the bed looking lost in a large room with white walls and high ceilings, I’ve surrounded the bed with rugs. The rug at the end of the bed is also Coates, and matches the bed linen. These colourful cushions, also from Habitat, can be easily mixed and matched together.

The orange cushion at the back is the Mattoni, next to it is the Coates cushion that matches the bedding.

The embroided cushion in the front row is called Oritz, whilst the green yellow one is called Zoe. In the far side of my bedroom, is my newly styled workspace. The art prints are also from Habitat.  My art prints are the mid century modern component of the Cali vibe.

That large orange print called Scattered Circle is by Lisa James, the colourful droplet print called Merge 1 is by Gharima Darwan, and the Hands print is by Anna Koveces. Potted plants in baskets were added to soften the blocks of colours and to give the room a fresh and relaxed feel. Don’t you think the Coates rug goes well with the art prints too? Here’s another view. I’ve left the walls above the bed unadorned, to stop the room looking too bright and busy. However, if you want to add more colour to your walls, then you could change your bedding to a white one.

I have used Habitat’s white linen bedding to style this second look. I’ve moved a few things round here.

The art prints are now above my bed. I’ve added a green and grey cotton throw at the end of the bed to balance out the colours. Habitat I’ve moved my potted plants to either side of my bed to compliment the green of the bed throw. How do you like these cool new cushions on my bed?

The emerald green Dot cushion pulls all the green elements in the room together.

Don’t you think the Hands and Face cushions are just the cutest? Did you spot the blue fringe on the face cushion? The art print above my bed by Eloise Renouf is called Shard. The Citrus orange, yellow and green really creates a happy sunny feel don’t you think? I’ve added some of the cushions from the first look bedroom here so you can see how they blend together easily. So there you have it, my Cali vibe bedroom.

I’ve had so much fun using the new Habitat bedding and also the new home decor collection.

Habitat has re-launched their bed linen edit with over 60 exclusive designs including Scandi-cool neutrals, statement pattern and colour, as well as luxe 100% linen designs. A visit to their store is a  great way to kickstart an update of your bedroom. Alternatively you can buy online too.

Finally, hope you’ve enjoyed the post, and I wish you a wonderful week ahead.
