No room is more personal than the bedroom, a special space to relax and wind-down in. Therefore it is important to create a space that is not only calming but that also looks good. A lick of paint is a great way to give the bedroom a quick and inexpensive update. A new colour palette can be easily changed with different seasons, or as children grow older without much hassle.
Paint effects are a great way to add character to the room. Try mixing two different hues to make the room feel larger, or paint a pattern to jazz up a teen’s space.
Judy Smith, Crown Colour Consultant gives her tips on how to choose the best paint colour for the room:
There are two things to consider when choosing paint. Firstly what style do you want?Is it modern or traditional, fun or more considered? Secondly what is the atmosphere?Clean and spacious, deep and moody, bright and breezy?Whatever your preference the choice of paint really can help fashion both style and atmosphere. For example, a range of Period colours would suit a more traditional look, whilst more earthy tones like dusty pinks and terracottas are more modern. Remember to balance the natural light in the room by using warmer or cooler tones. However, whatever the rules, it's important to go with what you like.
