Colour infusion with orange 4: bedrooms
- Who ever said a pokey bedroom couldn't pull off a bright colour? It can be done and you might just be thankful to have taken the chance. In our first bedroom, we imagined a small loft room but it could be any room - small or large for that matter! A light to medium wood floor and white walls as the shell; furniture is minimal with a futon style bed, a small rustic wood side table and some white open shelving for storage. The bed has a little twist with the use of vibrant orange pillow covers and bed sheets, with a cosy white duvet cover folded back to reveal the orange underneath. Woven baskets on open shelving store little essentials and a collection of orange vases and bedside table lamps UK pick up the colour again on the bedside table. If you want more décor - an assortment of white framed prints grace the wall behind the the head of the bed.
- Our next bedroom idea is quite eccentric and would suit the girly girl; there is actually a lot more pink going on in this room but it is given an ethnic vibe with touches of orange. With so many brights you need a lot of natural light and plenty of white - walls, floors and furniture in white will help to achieve this look. We are actually covering half of the colour wheel and in various tones - if you like this idea then we suggest you do some planning prior with a mood-board and a collection of paint and fabric samples to see what works best for you. Red is brought in with the odd touch - a trim around a pink Roman blind and a bedside table lamp; red-orange is seen too with a statement chair by the window. Orange comes in with light and medium tones - again, it is found in accessories and bedding textiles. Pink is dominant with a floor rug, Roman blind and pink floral bedding. Finally, a touch of purple with a bed runner and decorative cushion.
- Our final design in contrast to the previous, will suit men as well as women - the perfect unisex bedroom you might say! It is quite laid-back but for this reason it deserves a statement canvas or sculpture - save your pennies up by saving on cheap bedding sets in orange and a simple roller blind for the windows. A light grey is used on the walls and a medium to dark grey to upholster a headboard. So treat yourself to some gorgeous bedding and a head-turning statement piece - it could even be an uber-trendy set of bedside table lamps.
