Design duo 2 Lovely Gays –  aka Russell Whitehead and Jordan Cluroe – are rising stars of the interiors scene. You may have seen Jordan on BBC2’s first series of The Great Interior Design Challenge, or browsed their weekly interiors column for Metro. Their slogan is “Making living lovely” and their signature style is fresh, modern and bright, perfect for their young London clients. They’ve just branched out again with a new range of bedlinen created with The Secret Linen Store, so we thought it was a perfect chance to catch up with the boys to ask them for some beautiful bedroom design ideas and what they think makes a perfect sleeping space.

 

 

What is your idea of what makes a restful bedroom?

 

“No phones! It’s so important to us to leave our phones in the office. We love waking up to natural light too… I think you have a better day when you wake naturally.”

 

 

A bedroom design scheme by 2 Lovely GaysWhat inspired the colour choices for the new collection?

 

“Well we have always loved pink and blue… There is something so simple and elegant about the two together as a combo. The grey/taupe was inspired by the plaster walls we stripped in our home. Years of wallpaper and paint had left the most amazing patina on the plaster underneath. We designed the collection almost nine months ago so it’s a pure coincidence that they tie in perfectly with Pantone’s colours of the year.”

 

 

The pictures all feature fantastic headboards – tell us a trick for creating a focal-point headboard!

 

“A bed should be a haven and headboards are often too small. For us it has to be big, bold and, most importantly, comfortable. We made two of them for the shoot and the pink shell headboard is a vintage find. It’s a little Barbara Cartland but we love it.”

 

 

How is your own bedroom decorated?

 

“This is embarrassing but it’s not. We are renovating and the whole house is a building site. But we have grand plans… It’s going to be maximalist, with pattern and colour on every surface. We have an antique twelve-arm white porcelain chandelier that is decorated with small yellow and pink roses that will go up as a centrepiece. It sounds terrible but it’s going to be divine!”
