ADDING COLOUR TO YOUR BEDROOM!
Introducing colour into your own home is a great way to add a punch of personality into your space. Colours are very aligned with feelings and moods, and the right ones can even lift your spirits and put you in a more positive mindset! You can use colours in ways to suit your own interior style for your bedroom, making the chore of changing the sheets into a fun way to get creative and dress up your space.
Smaller items first
Let’s first start with the smaller items first, such as your pillowcases and or a throw. These are easier and less expensive to replace and it’s a great way to start adding a pop of colour to your bedroom if you’re a first-time colour user.
I am a lover of mixing different colours in bedding. It can be easy to change and rearrange to your own liking. I suggest introducing your main colour(s) first like the colour blocking technique (solid colour over pattern and texture). My tip would be to plan your use of colour before making your purchase. You can take inspiration for colour from a painting or a piece of furniture you already have in your bedroom and use that colour in your duvet. Now you have your solid colour you can now layer with different tones of those colours or texture by adding velvet pillowcases, and or linen pillowcases to the mix.
Play with colour
If you want to take it one step further, you can mix different colours together like I love to do. It’s totally up to the individual and you can play around with it - trust yourself and don’t be afraid. Colour is fun and makes a space look happy, so have fun and play around with it. It also makes changing the family’s bedlinen a lot more enjoyable. You can get in touch with your creative side and create a space worthy of a magazine spread (or Instagram!).
