Interior stylist and director of Hunting for George, Lucy Glade-Wright has partnered with Dulux to demonstrate how colour and styling can transform your bedroom, taking your space to the next level.
When it comes to redesigning your home, there aren’t many spaces as versatile as the bedroom. Whether it’s soothing colour schemes, luxurious bedding, or interesting decor pieces, there are countless ways to refresh your room.
Lucy transformed her own bedroom, from an 80’s timber shack into a cosy bedroom sanctuary using Dulux colour New Penny.
Here are Lucy’s top styling secrets to transform your bedroom.
Embrace colour – Colour is an incredible tool, so don’t be afraid to use it. The Restore palette (2022 Dulux Colour Forecast) features colours that are strong yet soothing, providing the perfect base to style your room.
Simplicity is key– Keep your styling elements and décor to a minimum, allowing the colour within the space to breathe. You want your furnishings to complement the space, not compete with them.
Ignite your senses – When styling your bedroom, choose elements, objects, textures and tones that warm your soul. Layer textural elements to create an inviting interior. Choose objects and materials that have an organic, natural feel to them. A great way to do this is through bedlinen and curtains, woven rugs and upholstered furniture, or handmade ceramics and artwork.
Check before you paint – Make sure to view your desired paint colour in the room first before painting. Colour can vary depending on its environment, lighting and other primary elements in the room so it’s important to make an educated decision based on this. Pick up some A4 samples or sample pots from your local Bunnings store to accurately test the colours around the room at different times of the day. That way, you’ll feel assured you’ve selected a colour(s) you’ll love.
Establish a colour palette – When selecting colours for your additional furnishings and decor, stay within a similar colour palette and tone to create a cohesive, sophisticated look.
