Molly Goddard and her husband, Joel Jeffery, know a thing or two about bedroom comfort. The couple run the Workmanship brand Desmond & Dempsey, which sells luxurious pajamas that are hand-painted, super cool, and incredibly cozy. But despite all their knowledge of bedroom loungewear, Molly and Joel needed a refresh in their actual bedroom decor. So they called in an expert from Farrow & Ball for a color consultation. Via Zoom, the couple walked through the space and their vision. Molly tells us just how the small updates made a major impact.

Molly: Like all projects, this was a real labor of love and it took time (and patience) — but it was ultimately carried along by our vision to create a calm haven to chill out in at home. The amazing Tiffany from Trove (who is a creative g-e-n-i-u-s) kitted us out with this delicious headboard, which really pulled the whole room together.

What was the process for the color consultation and then implementation?

We started our consultancy talking about the light in our bedroom. Patrick from Farrow & Ball took time to understand when we spent the most time in our bedroom, and how the light changed through the day. It was obvious that he had spent a lot of time looking at the 101 references I had sent him and then picked a color palette that would achieve the mood we were after.

Looking at the website, I would not have known the Shaded White could be so warm, but Patrick was spot on and the colors have done everything he told us they would do. More than just the color, Patrick gave us a very handy DIY floor suggestion and spent time helping us complete the look.
