Lifestyle

18 August 2017

Spring has not yet sprung but the anticipation of a warmer season can bring about a desire for change. On the home front that could mean a clear out or freshen up and what better place to start than with the bedrooms. One of the simplest ways to liven up a bedroom is with a change of colour palette so if it's a sanctuary you're looking for or a tropical oasis, here are 4 colour combos/themes to welcome in the warmer seasons.

1. TROPICAL SUNSET

Oversized palm fronds and tropical flora prints are the perfect way to create the ultimate at-home getaway.  We love the idea of toning the boldness of a leafy print back with black accessories then adding a pop of punchy colour to finish. Sunset orange would be our pick!

2. BOHEMIAN MINIMAL

Earthy neutrals and plenty of texture. This is what makes a bohemian-inspired bedroom tick only we like to balance all that texture out with the clean lines of a sculptural stool or side table. Adding in metallic accessories is another way to break up an otherwise neutral palette.

3. BLUE BREEZE

A rich nautical blue meets the sophistication and crispness of bright white. This look is part coastal, part metro and incredibly versatile for an inner city apartment or beachside bach. Our favourite find for this look is the standout headboard which ‘anchors’ the bed and adds some much needed wow factor.

4. RUSTIC RETRO

Time-worn materials and mid century modern classics combine to create a palette that is altogether soft and understated while being fresh and magnetic. While we’ve limited the colour palette to taupe, black and gold this would also be the perfect place to inject a mustard throw, green rug or orange side table.
