Today’s modern bedroom is often regarded as a multi-purpose room rather than what it was once was used for – just sleeping. These days many people have added couches and use the room as a hideaway where they can watch television, listen to music or read a good book.
Changes that you have planned for the room may well impact on its current setup and it could affect your sleeping patterns. It is therefore very important that any interior design bedroom projects should be well thought out because even something as simple as relocating a bed or changing the way the bed faces can potentially cause many sleepless nights and problems down the track.
New color ideas are here, fresh from the 2010 NeoCon World Trade Fair in Chicago where interior designers, architects and business owners swarm the Merchandise Mart to learn the latest and greatest for the home and office. The world of interiors is looking up!
What’s new? White. Clean, crisp, clear white. Not beige, not off-white, not dirty white. New advancements in textiles and surface materials provide options which are cleanable and stay that way. White kitchens never went out of style but they are now featured in the major showrooms. Now there is even white office furniture.
This is an interior decorating project you can do. Your color palette is what makes the rooms in your home come together. Well designed homes always have a beautiful color palette that flows between rooms from the entrance to the living room, family room, kitchen, powder room, stairway, etc. This flow is the relationship created from one room to another. A color palette is not the same as a paint color. The palette incorporates various paint and room colors. Not every room needs to be the same color or shade thereof though they do need to relate to one another. Good interior design begins with a well thought out color palette.
Start with the colors you already like. What do you gravitate to? What colors are in your closet? What colors are in your garden? Think about how certain colors make you feel this will send you in the right direction. Be confident and don’t apologize. Your room and home colors should reflect you and your personality, not your neighborhood design trend.
