No matter what accessories you already have or what you dream of having, your pink, white or grey and beige bedroom is almost guaranteed to welcome them. It’s not so much about colour on these incredibly versatile backdrops. What really brings neutral bedroom ideas to life is the art of layering an array of enticing textures.
Everything has its own texture, but when it comes to interior design it’s all about combining things like patterns, textiles and wood to create movement, depth and interest. Otherwise, your backdrop runs the risk of feeling a little cold. The key is to create a soothing balance between the two, so your design isn’t too cluttered or too bland.
The easiest way to add texture is with bedding and cushions in different plush fabrics, designs, patterns or colours. Rugs tie colour schemes together and contribute just the right amount of cosiness, without adding clutter. Contrast soft textures with wooden furniture, metallic lampshades, books, vases, artwork or candles. All neutral colour schemes benefit from plants and fresh flowers, and so will you!
There’s no doubt about it, beige comes in a large variety of tones. To pick the right shade for neutral bedrooms with pops of colour, first download the Dulux Visualiser app. Simply take a photo of your bedroom and tap on your favourite hues to see your room transformed on the screen with augmented reality technology. You can even send your ideas to family, friends or a decorator if you want a second opinion.
When you’ve narrowed down the options, order Dulux roller testers. They work just like decorating rollers so you can test colours and get an accurate idea of the finished result. With neutrals, it’s important to see how light changes the colours at different times of day. Paint samples on pieces of A4 paper, hang them up and don’t forget to check them in the morning, afternoon and under artificial light.
Remember that it’s pretty hard to go wrong with beige in the bedroom. It’s versatile, soothing and bound to continue its never-ending cycle of being on-trend in the world of interior design.
