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.
But in the beautiful bedroom image above, Julia was styling a bed linen campaign for Sage and Clare – who specialise in vibrant, bohemian, hand-crafted homewares – “and so I decided to let the bed linen be our actual artwork”, she says.The trick here was to use “a number of styles and patterns that complement one another, rather than a prescription packet of linen.”
To complement their newest offerings, Article also launched a series of cozy accessories, lush with different textures and patterns. From sustainable seagrass baskets to planters, each piece is meant to enhance and build upon what one already has in the home.
Not sure if you want to take a huge leap with red in your bedroom? Red accents is your answer. Bring in this spirited tone via a bold rug, an accent chair, beautiful bedding, scatter cushions, or even lampshades. If you’re happy with the first few options, continue this approach by adding more pieces (in other red hues) over time. But similar to the red accent wall, use the colour in more than one place to really get the right feel for it (and to see how it looks in various light) before making your final decision.
