Bedroom decorating tips using greenery: 1) Even in a small room, greenery can still be an overarching feature. 2) “Trailing cascading Devil’s ivy along the bedroom makes a real feature of its beautiful long tendrils, whilst the trio of plants in the foreground helps greenify the space and connect the scene,” explains Jacqui Vidal, co-founder of Ivy Muse, of the bedroom pictured above. 3) Light, contrasting walls (think neutrals, white, light grey, beige, pale pinks or even terracotta) will allow your plants to shine, says Jacqui.
“Artwork does not always have to be a print or painting”, says Noël. Try using objects or sculptural elements, either hung on a wall or arranged on a shelf above the bed.“The use of taxidermy and a statement bedhead in this bedroom offers an understated presence without being too obstructive,” she explains, while “the addition of colour and print in the bed linen brightens and lifts the space”.
Bedroom styling tips with rugs:“If you have used a contrasting dark rug as your base it’s likely that you’ve already made a big impact, so complement this by carefully selecting some softer, beautiful elements,” suggests Alexandra.Don’t forget, adds Alexandra, “the size of the rug – often overlooked – is of equal importance to the actual rug selected.” An overspill of rug “creates the illusion of more space, excess, and luxury” and, of course, “it’s always nice to be able to sink your toes into a plush wool rug first thing in the morning!”
As our regular readers know by now, there’s an entire belief system dedicated to the way colours make us look and feel, called ‘Colour Psychology’. Red happens to be one of the basic colours (along with blue and yellow), and it is one that immediately catches the eye.
