If you’re tired of the same old look in your bedroom, changing it may not be that difficult. Colour may come to the rescue to create a new look without keeping you awake at nights worrying about your budget. You can change humdrum into heaven by adding the right colours and lines to any existing décor.
Consider painting just one wall or area. If you have deep angles and interesting ceiling lines, the effect is even more dramatic. However, a rectangular or square room can be just as interesting with the right colour combination. Use a high contrast colour for a dramatic look. If your room is white, a bright colour or pastel can give you the look you want. Don’t rule out grey or a shade of grey to add interest to the room. Consider using making a wall a different shade of the same colour to add richness and depth to your room.
If you’re room is a pristine white, adding a few brightly coloured accents can bring out the best in it. You might want to use black and white drama with a touch of colour sprinkled throughout. New black and white superking duvet covers with accent pillows in red or other accent colour can change humdrum pristine into hot, hot, hot.
Give children’s rooms added colour with wall decals and stickers. You can change these frequently and easily to accommodate their ever changing interests. While stencils and murals may satisfy the artist in you, not everyone is lucky enough to be that creative, so they’re perfect for the busy mum or those who feel less comfortable with the wall as their easel.
Children’s rooms can be fun and whimsical when colour splashes change them from a room to a magical land. Painting a night sky with glow in the dark stars can be great for any child but especially appropriate for the budding astronomer. Get your child involved to help map out the sky if accuracy is important. You can also create beautiful clouds on the ceiling to give your child a pleasant sight when they first open their eyes, include childrens curtains with the same theme for a cohesive look.
For grown-up bedrooms, mini-blinds, shades and shutters are great window treatments but may lack the dazzling appeal you want. Use valences, jabots, cornices and swags to add extra colour and appeal to your room. You can also use fabric blinds to change the window treatment appearance entirely. Coloured bamboo wooden blinds and Roman blinds can create the perfect colour touches and change your look without breaking your budget.
