Great Fun Styling

When decorating you want to get it right, it can be a challenging job but also a rewarding one. Lee recently started decorating his bedroom which he had great fun styling, he enjoyed getting creative with colour and personalizing his space with soft furnishings. Whilst he was having great fun styling he learnt some useful decorating tips along the way.

Lee really enjoyed being involved in the styling of his space/bedroom, we thought with it being his personal space he should definitely be the one behind the styling of the room along with the layout. Who would be the best person to decide but the person who’s space it is.

We had great fun helping Lee style his space and also enjoyed giving/sharing some decorating tips along the way.

Layout

Deciding the layout of the room was the first piece of advice we gave Lee, he was asked how he was wanting his room, whether he was wanting a feature wall or not. He was also asked if he was wanting any major changes made before painting. Good job we asked as he was wanting changes made to his fitted wardrobe (post on this to follow).

Theme

We then asked him if he was wanting a theme in his room as we thought this would be a good starting point when it came to deciding on the colour, whether he was wanting a football theme as he is a huge football fan. This is the part Lee really enjoyed as the decision was all his. Lee had decided he wanted to look at the colour trends, he couldn’t decide if he wanted one or more colours but soon decided to go for plain walls in a Dulux Malt Chocolate colour and style his room in soft furnishings as these are easily changed if/when he wishes.

Colour scheme

We advised Lee that it is always best to get colour samples to colours he liked, a colour may look perfect in the shop but can look so different in the room itself due to a change of lighting and room size.

Storage

Storage is something that we don’t have enough of in our house and is something we definitely need to create more of. We advised Lee to make full use of any available space and create more if/where possible. With Lee’s room only being a box room this is what he is definitely doing as space is limited. Lee is currently thinking about whether or not to change his bed to one with storage space.

Soft furnishings

Soft furnishings can make a room look so different yet they can finish off any theme perfectly. They can help add character and warmth to any room. Soft furnishings are a perfect place to start when you’re wanting to add character, colour and your own personal style to your room.

Wall art

We said to Lee whatever way he decided to decorate his bedroom we could guarantee that he would be able to find wall art that would work perfectly and help add character to his room. There are so many different options available that he could choose from. He could choose posters, canvases, framed pictures, mural he could even make a collage of fun he’s had with friends at the football and give it that extra personal touch if he wishes.

We can safely say that Lee has thoroughly enjoyed himself and had great fun styling his bedroom so far. He is still hunting for soft furnishings but we said that will take time and it will all come together eventually. We have been looking at Baytree Interiors and Lee has seen some amazing ideas that he likes.

With all the excitement of Lee’s room being decorated it has made us think of our room. We have been looking at the trends for 2016 as we wish to turn our bedroom into the perfect relaxing space needed after a long day. I love the Rose Quartz and Serenity, these two colours do work seamlessly together, a relaxing enthralling palette mixing both cool and warm tones harmoniously. These two colours add a softness to interior trends, perfect for creating a relaxing environment which will work perfectly in our bedroom, they are even chosen as the Pantone colour of the year 2016.

What do you think?

In 2016 we are wanting to wave goodbye to our plain walls and boring furniture. We are now wanting to slowly add colour, style and bring in some bold and exciting interior to our home.

    We’re just in the middle of doing my daughter’s bedroom after moving house and it’s a lot of fun, so much choice. The tips are a great place for anyone starting too.

    I like this years choice of Pantone colours, I think there is much more that can be done with them as opposed to the one for 2015, lovely though it was x

  • Great tips. We are just about to start redesigning our bedroom, I hate painting with a passion, so might get someone in x

  • Most of my house needs decorating, I do love those colours – Rose Quartz is my favourite. Kaz x

    I love the idea of adding colour and I have always loved blue and pink together, they compliment each other so well!

    We’re moving house pretty soon, although into a rented property until we buy a house in the next couple of years and you’ve provided some great tips for anyone wanting/needing to decorate. I love some of the bits of furniture on Baytree Interiors.
