With most of the country feeling the icy winds, snow and minus temperatures the thought of staying in bed and snuggling down under the duvet would have crossed many people’s minds! However, as with yesterday’s post we can turn these icy conditions to our advantage and use them to transform our homes into warm and inviting places.
In the bedroom white continues to be a popular colour choice – it’s light airy and offers a pristine look we associate with cleanliness and clean living. White bed linen, especially sheets, remain the number one choice for many people. To create an entirely white bedroom you’ll need to ensure that you include lots of different textures, otherwise your bedroom could be too clinical and bland.
To help stave off the cold, warm bedspreads uk are ideal. Look for designs which are made from tactile fabrics such as velour, knits or brushed fleece to create a warm look which is also practical and functional. Fringes and tassels on bedspreads will also bring another texture to the room.
Large rugs are a great idea if you have wooden or tiled floors – your feet will certainly appreciate the warmth when you step out of bed!
As I mentioned yesterday it’s difficult to make a room entirely white, although this is achievable, you can turn to ivory and soft tones of white to make your bedroom look relaxed and informal. Accent colours can be simple ones, such as a toning dark wood look an easy chair and the bed frame.
If you love the idea of an all white bedroom but it leaves the room looking cold and pops of colour with bed cushions and cheap curtains. The goal you’re working towards is white so don’t add too much colour otherwise the whole concept will be lost and you’ll be left with a bog-standard bedroom which just has white walls and ceiling!
Other ways you can add interest ans texture is with your accessories. Simple twig styled arrangement draped with tiny fairy lights may sound kitsch but will give you a winter wonderland look and feel on the coldest of nights.
One of the greatest advantages of white bedrooms is that as winter turns to spring you’ll be able to subtly add spring colours, such as daffodil yellow, and the room will remain true to it’s original and main colour scheme of white.
