We are only talking about the master bedroom and the guest
bedroom here, but there are whole sections devoted to the nursery, the
little kids room and the big kids room if thatís what you need.
In guest bedrooms you can be dramatic and even
use stronger colours, and it is very nice to stay in a really posh
room, when you visit but remember that the master bedroom is the one
you will sleep in night after night.
This is the room for soft relaxing colours. You want colours that
promote meditative states like the violets. Other healing colours
like magenta help to promote a feeling of contentment and
completeness and the blues
and turquoises are also
Pale shades are generally easy on the eye. Soft creams are
delicious with anything, but a pure white room would be as terrifying
as an all black one. More than one shade of a colour always adds
depth and interest even when subtle.
If you are thinking of going for darker shades we would suggest you
stick with the ones mentioned above. Bright reds or yellows will
make you crazy in the bedroom if you use too much, and grey and
brown we would not recommend here unless you really know what you are
The bed is the most important buy. Get a good one if you can, and try it
out in the shop. If two of you sleep in the one bed but you both
have different mattress needs then invest in the single mattresses
zipped together to make the perfect bed.
Might seem like a big hassle but worth it.
A bedside light each is also a good idea but your room size will dictate
the furniture you need.
With the guest bedroom you can do what you like if it is seldom used. A crazy
room is a novelty, and fun if you donít have to sleep in it
indefinitely, but you might want to think in terms of flexibility in
a spare room and go for a sofa bed, or a futon or foam blocks. Then
you can treat it as a study, or workroom, or just a spare t.v. room.
Good idea to have storage to keep the duvet and bedding in. Blanket
boxes are the obvious choice and they double up as coffee tables
