Styling Your Bedroom
When it comes to bedrooms they come in variety of shapes and sizes, but there is one thing that makes our rooms our own and that is our own personal style. Each of us has a different style and taste and we all want to showcase that through the décor in our bedroom. Decorating can often be a struggle, we all love a freshly decorated room yet so many of us detest the task of creating that. Here are a few tips to help you banish the beige and to help you put your own personal style back in to that bedroom.
Colour schemes are perhaps the best reflection of our personality. Whether you choose something chic and simple or something a little louder and more bold, the colours we choose are a fantastic way of expressing ourselves. Simple colour schemes such as pastels and basic whites are frequently the easiest options to use within a bedroom as they act as a backdrop for your chosen furniture –which in turn makes the task of finding furniture to match a whole lot easier. These colours are also the best choice if you want to incorporate just a splash of brighter colour too as you can do so through highlight colours in your furniture. If you are a tad bolder and fancy something to match that, then opting for a feature wall is an easy way in which to do so. A feature wall can add colours and patterns to a room without it coming across as too garish or shouty at the rest of your room. If you want some ideas for colour schemes or general décor tips then there is plenty of inspiration online.
Picking furniture out for your bedroom is such a fun task and there is just so much beautiful furniture out there to choose from. Whether you opt for new or vintage it has to fit perfectly within the theme of your room. Mismatched furniture has been extremely popular of late and although it sounds like a straightforward task, if you do choose to go for the mismatched look then it takes some very careful planning in order to make it work. Check out local car boot sales and antique dealers to discover what stunning pieces of furniture they have to offer, but ensure that if they are mismatched they have a certain aspect in common with each other such as colour of wood. If you prefer something a little more contemporary then discovering the perfect furniture for your bedroom should be a breeze. Many companies such as David Phillips Furniture offer complete packages of furniture for your bedroom, which means you have more time in which to add those personal touches that make your room, well – yours!
