When Stylist & Designer Jono Fleming wanted to do a quick makeover of his unfinished bedroom in rural NSW he came straight to Heatherly.
” I sat down with the team and we talked through every detail, wall colour, bed width, size, style. Every single detail was covered. For example, I had wall lights that couldn’t be moved but the team came up with the amazing solution to curve the corners. We went through different fabric choices, I took a few samples with me and compared them to my wall colour, and sent it back to them to get made up.” says Jono.
“What I needed was a bit of a guiding voice and an expert in their field to come and help guide me. Once the bed head was made and delivered, the rest of the room fell into place easily. ”

With a few simple design techniques, Jono created the serene bedroom retreat he envisaged – a place to reset and relax in these changing times. Here he shares how it came together…
To enhance the views of the pine forest outside, I chose a darker colour for the walls, the deep moody teal. It makes the room feel cosy, an escape no matter what time of the year.
- The wall colour dictated a lot of choices from the ground up such as the navy striped rug to not only compliment the teal but also give the room a nice textural feeling underfoot.
- I splurged on a custom bedhead by Heatherly Design to anchor the room. It was curved at the corners to accommodate the fixed handblown glass wall lights (by Articolo) that couldn’t be moved. I chose an upholstered fabric in a painterly mustard weave to contrast the teal walls and enhance the stripes that featured on other soft furnishings.

- I layered the soft linen bedding with velvet pillowcases so the bed looks plush. Each night it feels like a holiday at home!
- All the cushions in the farmhouse were hand made by my mum! She sewed over 100 cushions in total by scouring fabric remnant stores for textural fabrics with faint lines in neutral colours. She then made them up into amazing cushions.
- Bedside tables selected are classic, not too fussy and timeless whilst the black helps them disappear.
- I chose a Kara Rosenlund print to help tie all the moody colours together whilst the pops of yellow connects to the bed head. Kara’s work is pure story telling and she has such a way of transporting you to a moment and a mood.
- For small décor ideas, I love using sculptural vases, the Roman head from H&M home is paired with the stumpy vase from Clay Canoe. These pieces sit in contrast with each other but don’t clash.
The key to pulling this look together is to let certain colours shine and the rest to sit quietly and complement them. The teal on the walls and the ochre of the bedhead and pillows pair perfectly together, the neutrals and navy tones then act as support to these colours.
