Steal This Look: A Hushed Bedroom in Calming Colors

January 26, 2021

Lucky is the home that calls Nina and Craig Plummer its owners. The two are the founders of Ingredients LDN, an inspiring online store based in Edingburgh, and the grand apartment they share is a testing ground for the beautiful products sold on their site. Only items that fit their philosophy and aesthetic—the perfect soft palette; natural materials; thoughtful craftsmanship—make it onto their site and into their home.

The result is a wonderfully considered residence. (See the full house tour here.) We’re particularly taken with Nina and Craig’s muted bedroom. Let’s take a tour, then we’ll show you how to get the look.

The walls are limewashed in a warm neutral. “The process is easy and very forgiving,”  Nina told Margot. “The effect achieved depends on the brushstrokes you use: you can get an almost solid color or more of a plaster look.”
