COLOR & IDEAS
ONE BEDROOM, THREE LOOKS
Thinking of a bedroom makeover, but not quite sure how and where to start? Look no further! We’ve put together three looks with colour and design tips, to help you create on-trend styles for your bedroom. Read on…
Look 1: Coastal Style
Mood: Open, airy and calming.
Natural weave rugs, decor in sand washed, salted, or powdered finishes, warm metals in brass and copper, and hand-woven textures in fabrics are the key elements of a coastal-themed decor. Combine weathered and worn furnishings with modern and organic accent pieces to infuse the coastal vibe.
You can layer whites and off-whites with sun bleached pastels in warm and cool tones to create the coastal colour palette. Colour accents can be found in dusty aquas, warm stone greys, nautical cobalts, rusty reds and sand tones.
Look 2: Immerse Yourself In Greens
Mood: Tranquil, contemplative and grounded.
Embrace the wonderful hues of greens, from the deepest forests, aqueous blue-greens, true greens, silvery sages to tangy yellow-greens in different styles and patterns.
Achieve this style with green-coloured furnishings, fabrics and accessories and create a cohesive look. The trick is to use the colours that have the same value, or lightness level, and accent them with bright, light or deep variations.
Look 3: Spring Is In The Air
Mood: Cheery, energizing and youthful.
Bright colours inspired by the floral and citrus brights are the perfect basics for putting together a spring-themed look. While choosing the paints for home, you can opt for fresh yellow-greens, hot pinks, tropical blues mingled with soft pastels from every colour family.
For the spring look, keep your walls, fabric and decor items in brilliant, energy-inducing tones while keeping the trims and floorings in white.
It is interesting how small décor changes, the flooring and furnishings can help create three distinct looks within the same space. Hope you know now how a few strategic décor elements can change the entire bedroom’s vibe and make a big difference. Do try and rework your bedroom using these elements using your own sense of style of course and create a bedroom that is more personal to you.
