In our penultimate post on Bewitching & Beguiling Bedroom Ideas, we’re going to take a look a white, after all white witches are the exact opposite of black witches!
All white interiors have been the mainstay for minimalistic contemporary interiors for many years and while some think they are too bland and boring others revel in the idyllic simplicity white offers a bedroom.
You do however, have to strike a balance between beautiful and boring. The key is to include plenty of different textures to keep interest in the room. White bedding and duvet cover sets are an ideal base from which you can build layers to create a chic and stylish bed which should be the focal point of the room. Use a high padded statement headboard in a regal crown style to really embrace the wonderland look.
Add bed throws in chenille, or subtly patterned jacquard, along with a mountain of pillows and boudoir styled cushions – look for those in different shapes and sizes as well as textures to add further interest. Another important aspect is to make sure you have the same shades and hues of white, otherwise some could look ‘dirty’ when next to a pristine white.
Of course the walls, ceiling and floor should also be white, if you have wooden flooring use large rugs or a single rug under the bed to create a white zone area.
Next move onto the window dressing. Many modern double glazed window units are in white PVC which makes life easy when it comes to decorating. If you have a wooden window frame give it plenty of gloss white paint. Simple, yet stylish net curtains give a feminine touch which is keeping with the room – look for patterns which represent tiny snowflakes or frost patterns.
Full length plain white curtains are a must, along with white curtain poles or white curtain tracks. Fit them close to the top of the wall to make the window appear taller than it is, as this will add height to the room and balance with the high statement headboard.
Accessories should be kept to a minimum and naturally should be white!
