Vibrant colour and quirky style are the calling cards of illustrator and maker Beci Orpin, and her new bedroom makeover is a lovely reflection of that. West Elm worked with Beci to create a colourful and grown up room that reflected Beci and Raph’s style. “Pops of colour, lush textures – but still with a feeling of calm, and I wanted it to fit in with the things I already have in my space,” said Beci.
What I love about this makeover is that it’s really true to Beci’s natural style – it doesn’t look like a whole catalogue of furniture has been set up in her home. Rather, the blending of old and new is seamless and natural.
“I love it – actually way more than I thought. I wake up daily feeling like I have my life together, because my bedroom is so beautiful! The pieces I had in our bedroom previously were all things I had collected over time, and I love how the west elm pieces fit in with those, and almost elevated them so they are shown in a whole new light,” explained Beci.
On her favourite pieces: “I always wanted to see what our bedroom looked like with velvet curtains – now they’re up I love them so much. They suit the room perfectly. The Charm rug is also a JOY. Having the chair in our room feels very grown up indeed, I love the warmth of the rusty colour too.”
On her style: “The style I use in my work is bold, graphic, colourful and feminine without being too girly. I would say my home style is the same, although I like it to be slightly more understated when it comes to our bedroom.”
