Shake-up Your Colour Scheme 1: Trendy Camel
One of the best and most economical ways of decorating any room in your home is to just give your walls a coat of paint. If you do this to say, your bedroom you will be amazed at the transformation that can take place, and in a short space of time. You will find a huge variety of colours to choose from that cover the whole spectrum, at first this can seem a little bit daunting, but you enlist the help of the colour wheel you'll have a much better idea as to what colour to choose.
If you think for a moment about your favourite colour, you might find that a shade of this colour will work for you, but on the other hand if your favourite colour is black, this might not be such a good colour to use in your bedroom. As a bedroom is one of the rooms in your home that you need to feel comfortable and relaxed in, you'll need to choose a colour that creates this feeling, but at the same time also says something about your personality and character.
Colours can affect the mood that a person feels, for example, if you use green in a room it often has the effect of making people feel calm and relaxed and therefore a pastel shade of green can work well in a bedroom. But a colour such as yellow or mustard yellow can make a person feel full of energy and vitality, and as such is not a good colour to use in the bedroom.
Red on the other hand is very often seen as being romantic and passionate and many people might like to paint their walls with this beautiful colour, but you will do well to keep in mind, that the colour red can make a room appear smaller than it actually is, so red curtains teamed with camel may be a better option. When selecting a colour you will also need to consider the furnishings you have in your room, such as your bed and other bedroom furniture like wardrobes. Another consideration is the choice of bedroom curtains and what type of fabric you are going to use, if your bedroom curtains are full length and of a heavy fabric they can often make a room seem more enclosed. If you don't need to have full length ready made curtains, it's best to opt for ones that are light and made of voile curtain fabric.
