If a home is one’s castle, the bedroom is surely one’s sanctuary. A place to retreat and recharge. Which is why it is so important that it is furnished for maximum comfort, as well as personal style.

As we know, the design world adores a buzzword, darling. The Danish concept of Hygge has been having an extended moment over the past couple of years.

Hygge (pronounced hue-guh) is a word used by the Danes to acknowledge a feeling or moment which is cosy, charming or special. Creating that feeling in the bedroom is the art of great interior design. Never mind buzzwords…it’s a timeless recipe to soothe a harried soul!

If you’re an interior designer or retailer looking for tantalising new wholesale bedroom pieces for residential or commercial projects, we’ve got some of the best in bedroom from the 2018 Decor + Design exhibitors.

The Perfect Foil for Any Lair – Gallery Direct’s “Wolf Throw”

Gallery Direct is one of the world’s leading designers, manufacturers and distributors of furniture, home decor and accessories. The British-owned business prides itself on being a complete home furnishings solution. Their broad, classic range has made them a huge success and they supply to stores including John Lewis and the White Company.

Their Australian-based arm has no less an extensive range. This “Wolf Throw” in Chocolate was basically handmade for winter Netflix marathons, hot chocolate in hand. Don’t worry animal lovers, the super soft material is faux.

The brand do a mean line in throws. Pictured above is their Check Mohair Throw in Duck Egg – which will turn a cane chair into an inviting refuge.

Gallery Direct are planning an impressive stand at Decor + Design 2018. Find them at Stand G26.

Satara are back with a gorgeous range of carefully designed and curated pieces, which they manufacture in their own factories.

Satara’s collections evoke luxury resort living for both residential and commercial spaces. With the very best designs from Europe and Australia, quality is at the forefront of every single piece they produce. Their designers and skilled artisans deliver superior workmanship at a reasonable price for professionals dealing with large scale projects.

Continuing the Scandinavian vibe, we love this “Nordic” bedside table from Satara. Perfect with the cerulean blue of the pictured counterpane…but an extremely versatile piece that will work with a range of colour palettes.

Add A Splash of Blue – Designer Boys’ “Indigo Coral” Painting

The Designer Boys need no introduction. After endearing themselves to the Australian public as popular winners of The Block, Gav & Waz spent almost a decade as high profile interior designers before their creative talents gave birth to their sought-after wholesale art business.

Their art collections are built on original design and a commitment to exceptional service and understanding their clients’ needs. The boys continue to win fans with their eclectic collection that harnesses their eye for design.

We think this “Indigo Coral” piece would be divine hanging above a white-washed bed frame.

The Designer Boys will be bringing their unique flair to Decor + Design 2018. Meet them at Stand C19.

The Scent of Europe – French Country Collections “Amaretto” Diffuser.

French Country Collections’ pieces are inspired by the simple luxury of the French way of life, plus a passion for creating homes “made to be lived in, loved and shared.” Sounds like the embodiment of “Hygge” to us!

With 30 years’ in the business, the New-Zealand based business has clearly perfected the art of curating treasures for stylish and elegant homes.

The brand have many pieces that would work well in the boudoir, including some stunning cushions in pastel and neutral tones.

However for a whiff of old Europe, we love the “Amaretto” Diffuser. Its dusty pink ceramic base is perfect for an ensuite. The aroma is soft but rich, with hints of coffee and biscotti.

Enjoy while soaking in a long, long bubble bath.

Pick out some comfort pieces at French Country Collections’ Decor + Design stand – L04.


Home Among The Gum Trees – Mi Amor’s “Australiana” Candles

Candles are an essential weapon in the arsenal of Hygge. Their soft, flickering light creates ambience and a sense of calm, while a carefully chosen fragrance can alter the entire dynamic of a room.

Beautifully presented, Mi Amor Candles’ exquisite range is made from 100% natural soy wax and tenderly hand-poured in Melbourne.

If you prefer a fresh, Australian scent, try the “Canberra” candle, with a comforting aroma of wattle and Eucalyptus.

Mi Amor Candles will be at Design Laneway at Decor + Design this year. Design Laneway is a special area within the exhibition for independent studios and emerging artists.

Find Mi Amor Candles at Stand DL02 at Decor + Design.
