Give your bedroom an up-to-the-minute style update with a lick of paint in a shade of pink or peach. That's right, take to your walls with fabulous pastel colour! For the best colour balance, keep your ceiling, doors, trim and skirting painted in crisp white, and shop for bright white roller blinds for your windows, too! Style tips to note: mount one bedside light on the wall and set the other on a side table for a stylish yet eclectic look. Plus, choose matte black lights for a contemporary vibe. Above your bedhead, arrange your framed prints, artworks and photos in a well-balanced gallery-style format.
Love the classic black and white style? Go one step further and merge greys into the scheme, too. To achieve this look: choose furniture, picture frames and accessories in matte black finishes and keep your ceilings and main walls painted in fresh white. Introduce greys through your bedding and by painting the backing wall of niches in a shade to match (here, behind the bed). Space-saving tips: make the most of vertical wall niches by adding an even spread of handy, solid timber storage shelves. Plus, if you desire a mini work zone at home, also position a small desk and noteboard in your bedroom with a wall-mounted task lamp to suit. Just pull up a chair when it's time to work!
A little bit classic, a little bit contemporary, a whole lot cosy — amp up the mood in your bedroom by introducing timber tones. Seek out a warming paint scheme that works best with your existing flooring, then add a timber-look feature wall behind your bed (you'll find some vinyl and laminate planks are perfect for this application — just check the installation tips on the box). While you're in DIY mode, you can knock up backless, solid timber boxes for side tables and mount them to your wall on each side of the bed using small brackets. Layer more wintry warmth to your room with a solid timber bedhead, table lights in copper, brass or bronze finishes and cosy bedding.
