Creating a colourful bedroom is a fun and exciting way to add personality and a touch of individuality to your own personal oasis and private space. The bedroom, unfortunately, is the room that gets neglected the most, with renovations and upgrades being completed last. This is a common occurrence as it seems communal spaces such as the living room and bathroom always take precedence. Given that is a private space, you have the freedom to decorate however you see fit, which means you don't need to adhere to current trends and fashion. It is your sanctuary; choose the style that represents you best.
We understand that glossy magazines as of late are flooded with minimalist and modern bedrooms that lack colour and life. If you have always dreamed of a vibrant and vivacious bedroom, we have just the ideabook for you below. Turn your dreams into a reality, and follow the expertise and knowledge of homify India's experts!
Everyone loves to see red and blue together. They are a regal colour palette that has been used for centuries to decorate aristocracy and royalty. Once upon a time, these colours were difficult to create and thus were far too expensive for the average person. Nowadays, thanks to advanced dying techniques, we can have the same brilliant and bold shades of red and blue in our home. The contrast of these when paired together creates a striking mix that is suitable for any bedroom. As you can see here, the designers have cleverly offset the bedspread against a white headboard and deep chocolate brown wall. This is a great way to ensure that even when you have a pop of colour, you don't need to sacrifice a sultry and moody aura.
If you don't want to sacrifice a white or muted colour scheme, you can very easily add colour through your linen. This is one of the most common ways to do so, as you can change the linen as often as your heart desires. Nowadays, there are a plethora of shops selling bed spreads, sheets and quilts in an array of colours and patterns—the choice is endless. If the main elements of your room are subtle, like pictured, you can add the boldest and brightest linen possible for maximum effect. As pictured, the blue becomes the hero of the space, standing out against the sea of white.
This bedroom is fortunate in the sense there is colour added to both the walls and linen. A complementary colour palette of yellow and brown has been chosen to create a subdued, yet vibrant space. The chocolate brown balances the yellow perfectly; had it been white or a pale timber, the space would look a little too bright. This way, they have combined colour and texture and created a room that is both warm and inviting—the right adjectives to describe a bedroom suite!
A feature wall is one of the easiest and most fashionable ways to add colour to your bedroom. If you prefer to have pale-coloured linen for ease of maintenance, you can definitely add texture and pattern elsewhere. This stunning feature wall, is made from orange carnelian; a vibrant and passionate member of the quartz family. Handmade entirely from real gemstones, the varying tones, which switch from red, to orange to yellow, add a completely new and exciting dimension to the space.
If you are renting your apartment or home, your decorating choices become somewhat limited. The easiest thing to do is to add the colour to your walls through artwork. You can get some zany and vibrant prints, from experts like Fatfatiya, which will no doubt fill your room with life! The choice of available prints is huge, and you can even employ your own artistic license if you are tight on cash. If you have kids, their attempts to be mini-Picassos look great when framed and put on display. By framing these drawings, you can have lasting memories of their growth on your walls.
