The silly season can be far from serene, so take the time to transform your bedroom into a relaxing zone – ideal for ‘you time’! Be inspired by the vibrant tropics and embrace the things you love when choosing decor for your new retreat.
A feature wall is far from a faux pas when you select the right one to paint and the best colour to complement your space. In a bedroom, the wall that anchors your bed suite is the ideal one to choose, and in a soothing yet statement-worthy shade of green (here, Dulux Forest Bound) it serves its purpose well – setting the scene for countless nights’ rest.
Nothing says tropical getaway decorating quite like bamboo furniture. It’s totally versatile, funky and, once painted up, will look fresh as a frangipani. The best news is, items like this duo of side tables are regular finds at garage sales, as well as on eBay and Gumtree. See over the page for painting instructions.
Where the forest meets the sea! Create beautiful display pieces to dress your decor using collections that remind you of the beach (think pieces of coral, shells or colourful stones). Sourced from aquarium stores and gift shops, glue a selection of pretty pieces to painted corks and display them in clear bottles.
Enjoy mornings in bed at your place set amongst a scattering of plush, patterned cushions. Breakfast is served!
