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.
And when it comes to country bedrooms, those reds are chalkier and softer: Opt for reds with a pinkish and purplish hue, such as Apple, Scarlet, Candy or Rose red. Accessorise your country bedroom with knickknacks and fabrics.
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.
Associated with energy and passion, red directly impacts our physiological state, since it increases heart rate and makes us breathe faster. But don’t forget that red is also the colour of love and passion (think about how it’s flaunted around Valentine’s Day every year). What’s more, studies suggest that people who wear red are also rated as more attractive by others.
