Pink & blue bedroom
New lease of life for artist’s bedroom and ensuite
Having designed this client’s kitchen, she had me back to give a new lease of life to the bedroom and ensuite. Originally all walls were off-white with a few pops of colour in the furniture, but it was lacking any oomph or cohesion. We began with a feature wall of panelling to frame the bed and complement the period features of the house and carried the colour onto the wardrobes and into the small ensuite.
Although initially my client was hesitant to continue this dark shade through, by painting the bathroom dark and adding green plants, the space feels much bigger now, and more harmonious with the rest of the room.
Inspiration was taken from the original iron fireplace with its turquoise tiles, so the little side table was painted to tie in. The client remembered she had some beautiful pink patterned curtains tucked away so we put these to use and reupholstered the armchair with bed cushions to match. This gave us lots of pink accents to play with around the bed area, balancing the darker tones and adding femininity to this bold and striking luxe bedroom.
