Add Style With A Neutral Bedroom
Redesigning a house is a very personal journey, with homeowners wanting to put their stamp on their property once they are given the keys. While they might paint the hallway bright yellow and embrace the jungle theme in the lounge, one room they should consider a more neutral palette for is the bedroom.
Homes And Garden magazine noted this can make a house seem a lot more luxurious.
“Elegant and timeless in their simplicity, neutral bedroom schemes are a stalwart in the world of interiors,” it stated.
The great thing about them is that they allow homeowners to add character and colour to the room with accessories, from velvet rugs and cushions to large statement lamps.
Art pieces, furniture, soft furnishings, curtains or blinds will give the room distinction and personality, without having to paint the walls a deep or bright colour.
In contrast, Architectural Digest recommends wallpapering as a way of making a room feel a lot more luxurious. This is particularly effective in Victorian homes, saying it helps to “honour the style in this century”.
According to the Homes And Garden article, thinking carefully about the art pieces you pick for your bedroom can also make a difference. It can also create a colour palette for the rest of the accessories in the room, so resist the temptation to put any old picture on the wall.
Don’t forget to consider your lighting carefully, as this can alter the atmosphere of the room to make it feel cosier at night-time. You don’t want bright lights when you’re reading before bed, so make sure you have bedside lamps that exude a warm glow and not sharp white lights.
