A friend of mine was so impressed by my bedroom mini-makeover last week she asked me to help her come up with a scheme for her own, as yet, undecorated bedroom. Her white walls were looking a bit too stark and she was keen to inject some old-fashioned femininity into the room. She’s a bachelorette so we had free reign to go overboard with flowers and pretty pink which according to the Homebase paint guide is one of the best colours for helping you go to bed relaxed and wake up refreshed each morning.
We started off with a delightfully nostalgic looking rambling rose wallpaper which will go on the wall behind the bed (I couldn’t quite persuade her to do four walls). Then to prevent the room looking too grannyish we added sheets and pillowcases in a coordinating green and a bold pink which will be mixed and matched. Next step was to add some pretty floral cushions and a cotton fringed white throw to finish off the bed.
Every romantic bedroom needs a crystal chandelier and a lamp to create a lovely glow. And finally we scouted around for some pretty glass and silver accessories for the dressing table.
As soon as funds allow, new bedroom furniture, a white sheepskin rug and white linen curtains will be added, but for now she’s very happy with her new things.
