While we'll never fall out of love with airy, light-filled spaces that pop with bright white fixtures and soft neutrals, sometimes a moodier palette is the perfect strategy. When lifestyle blogger Cara Loren partnered with Lulu & Georgia to transform her bedroom into an ultra-stylish hideaway, she knew she "wanted something a bit more moody and different" than the rest of her house. In an otherwise bright white home, the bedroom was intended to be a darker retreat of rest and relaxation, punctuated by luxe details to bring warmth to the sleeping space. "As a team, we landed on this sultry and tropical combination that fit the vibe of what I envisioned perfectly," explains Loren. With a navy tufted bed, gilded accents, dark natural wood finishes, and a covetable palm-print wallpaper "inspired by sultry summer nights" that Loren custom-designed, the dark retreat certainly has one feeling like they're on vacation.
